    Hi. I'm fairly new to mapping, and I have a HUGE problem when I compile my map. I don't know whats wrong. Here's the compile log:
    Code:

    The command failed. Windows reported the error:
      "The system cannot find the file specified."
    
    I have had this problem before, but I cannot remember how I fixed it. I do use the Ultimate Mapping Resource Pack.

    Thanks for reading and I hope I or somebody fixes my problem! :)

    It's this line right here:

    Find Visible Detail Sides...Bad detail brush side

    This usually means you tried to use multiple tool textures (trigger, nodraw, etc.) on the same brush, and in most cases that causes a compile error. You can find the offending brush by unchecking everything in the visgroups except for tool brushes and triggers and looking for it in the 3D view.

    For future reference, bookmark this handy page which checks your compile log for errors and tells you how to fix them :)

    Oh. I think I know what you mean. I have a spot in my map that has the "clip" texture on all faces except for one, which has a fence texture. I was trying to have a fence that I could shoot through. Thanks a lot! :O
