    I skipped vis because I'm just testing so I ran bsp and rad and I noticed that a few areas on my map are a little too dard. Went back and looked at the log and there is no Gatherlight - bounce .........

    Light is not bouncing and brightening up some of the areas it should be. What's the problem? I thought at first it was a leak and I fixed those but I must have fixed them all because there are no more pointfiles to load.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh - help

    I'm almost 100% certain gatherlight is done when you run vrad, not vvis. If so, then I am still confused as to why it doesn't run gatherlight when I run vrad. If vvis must be ran to see that then there is no problem. But I'm pretty sure gatherlight runs when you run vrad.

    GatherLight is part of vrad indeed, but I'm pretty sure that vrad requires vvis information to work properly on a number of points, this could be one of them.

    A fast vvis takes something like five seconds anyway, so I can't see any good reason to skip it (I perfectly understand why you wouldn't do a normal vvis when you jsut want to test).

    You are absolutely correct. Once you run vvis on fast, it works. Thanks.
