    Im not sure is this right place to put this topic but ok..anyway , l dont have problems with hammer / compiling etc.. l have problem with .bsp file when l try to run map on my dedicated server or just LAN server l get a realy fucked up map , no working sky , some players spawn in opposite spawn rooms , water doesnt work etc..but ... on server where l got the map , it worked very well. If u going to ask me , why not to play it on server u got it? Simply , its map for practicing facestabs etc... and it just cant be done when other peoples kill you.And no , l didnt got answer from owners.:)

    also if you're testing it on a weird server it could also have weird mods that mess with how your map is suppose to be played. if it plays fine when you type "map <yourmapname>" then its the server, not your map.

    post your compile log if that still doesnt help.

    Then you're missing the server mods that the other server had running.

    What he said still applies. The server it was on probably had some weird mod's that made the map work. Though it makes no sense why the sky and water would be affected.

    I know a map off the top of my head that is exclusive to its map-maker's server: axl_soccer won't work on any server other than its own because Axl made a mod or plugin or something that only allows it to work on his server.

    Lol , l get it why map doesnt work , but is there a way to remove that from bsp file so anybody can run map without plugin? And if u know how to do it please tell and dont start craps like "If map is protected means autor didnt want to have other peoples use it " , if author didnt want their map to being used by other he shouldnt even put it on public server. Im for opensource if u ask yourself why l wrote that.

    Sorry, if the reason it indeed doesn't work is because its using a plugin, then unless you get that plugin also, it will not work.

    The only reason people make server-specific maps is to have a "hook", a unique something to bring people to their server.

    edit: btw, may I ask what map it is? Cuz if you were to name a map that we know is on a lot of servers, we could start over and throw the "plugin idea" out.
