    I've been working on my map, and I have come across a problem where everything I have been adding to the map it is not showing up on the map when i run it. Like maybe when i hit "Run Map" It loads an older version without the new stuff I added.. anyone have this problem? I need a fix, I really want to work on this map! :O

    Thanks in advance! :p

    Check the compile log for errors, also check if your map renamed itself.

    You most likely have an invalid solid. Check the compile log, which is created when the map is compiled. It appears in the black area in VBCT, or in the normal hammer, it appears in the box that displays progress. Copy and paste it here.

    VBSP, the program that actually compiles your map, is crashing for some reason. This can be caused by a number of things, such as an invalid solid, a displacement tied to an entity, or another error in building the map. Check the compile log that is produced for errors, or post it here and we'll check it for you.

    fix'd

    that site reads the compile log for you. It will pick up all problems recorded in the compile log. Some of the things it comes up with though are no problem what so ever (namely, the error about the skybox texture and cubemaps, but I think there are a couple more).
    Of course, some problems may not be recorded in the compile log due to there very nature (the compiler thinks that a certain property is intentional. Computers aren't smart at all), so don't rely on this to find every problem you ever face.

    OK, so you have an areaportal leak. Remove the areaportals, or make sure that they are sealing the area.

    You also have an invalid solid here:
    64.00 1848.00 -86.70

    Find it, and delete or remake it.

    How can I use those directions (64.00 1848.00 -86.70) to find it exactly?
