    Okay, I've saved the map in different places and with different names, but I still get the "The system cannot find the file specified."

    Here is the Compile Process:

    Look at all the VBSP errors you have. Are you reading the compile log and searching for solutions to the portal side errors? Are you looking at the geometry around those coordinates?

    Are you even making use of the Interlopers error checker? It would tell you this.

    Here is the link again: http://www.interlopers.net/errors/

    Now go there first, next time you have an error

    I've used Interlopers error checker, and I've fixed a leak. I tried again, but still got the same error.

    Here's what it says, now.

    Why aren't you using the default mapsrc directory? It should be something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\content\tf\mapsrc depending on the drive you have Steam on. It could literally be that simple; it has been before. Sometimes capital letters in file names or spaces in the local directories have also caused this issue for inexplicable reasons.

    I'm also looking at this line:

    "brick/replacements" - "materials/brick/replacements.vtf": cached version doesn't exist

    What is this? Custom or a stock texture? I don't recognize it if it's stock. This kind of error comes when you have errors in your game files (either because they are corrupted or the custom texture is malformed somehow). I don't necessarily think this is the source of the problem, but you should close everything and verify your TF2 game files just to be sure. If you've recently set Hammer up, make sure you've done it right and are using the Hammer in the tf/bin folder.

    Assuming that those don't fix it--and I don't think they will, but they might--we're going to need more info. If your compile log has no errors other than that it can't run VVIS or VRAD, we have to look elsewhere.

    It looks like VVIS and VRAD can't run, which means you have a VBSP error. That could be anything from brushes and geometry to entities and game logic, etc. (The strangest things can make Hammer upset.) The first thing to do is hit alt+p in Hammer and make sure there's no problems (you can ignore the player start error). The second is to check all your logic.

    If you're sure that's all well and fine, the next step is all deduction. What did you change before this started happening? Can you narrow it down in any way? Can you compile sections of the map using the cordon tool? Are you attempting to do anything extremely complicated or unusual? Is your map an extremely large open space?

    Now that I'm down here rereading this post, it might just be the texture thing. Although I wouldn't expect that to be a fatal error.

    Report back when you either solve it or exhaust these issues. It might end up being a situation where it's best to upload your VMF so someone can take a look at it and try to figure it out.
