    i keep getting entity leaks e.g.
    Entity prop_dynamic (-404.00 1768.00 0.00) leaked!
    it seems to be the door frames, what do i make them from? the prop_static leaked and the dynamic leaked

    any ideas?

    They should be prop_static.
    Leaks are gaps in your map that 'leak' into the void beyond. Imgine you only have enough air for your map and your players need to breath it, if there is a hole in your map all the air will escape, and thats not good, you've got to fix it but plugging the hole.

    go to: map>load pointfile

    It should give you a red line, follow the red line and it will pass though a gap. Plug that gap, recompile and look for the next leak. (the pointfile only shows the first leak it finds and all need to be fixed.

    check that the move direction matches up properly and post a screenshot of the keyvalues you've got for it.

    Well for one thing the func_door doesn't need to be parented to the door model.

    Open cp_game_entities.vmf and take a look at the doors in there.
