    Hello,

    For some reason, when I press run map, the progress dialog will stop at
    "Portal Flow...0...1" and will not run. In the past, I have been able to run maps with ease- any idea as to why it is behaving this way? Thanks,

    Aspernatio

    Does it physicly crash, or just stop there? Chances are it will take time to do it and wont be instant. Have you done any optimisation? If it's a large map with little to none then this process will take some time.

    I've tried running multiple other maps, and they all load within 10-20 seconds. This is an extremely small map, so I don't really see what the issue is...

    Any leaks? Odd shaped geomatry that should be func_detailed? Maybe read up on some optimisation tips. (Even if they don't help with this map, they will help in future maps.)

    Maybe it's just taking a really long time as it normally does.

    Did you run it through the interlopers.com error checker? Maybe theres an error happening earlier in the process.
    Also you might try coping everything in the map and pasting it into a new .vmf, sometimes that magically fixes strange errors.
