    I recently tried to optimize lightmaps for my level because VRAD kept running out of memory. After I did that, the map loads with no light at all, and with mat_fullbright off. The only things I can see are entities.

    There are light entities in the map, so I'm not sure what could be causing this. There are also no leaks.

    Try using mat_fullbright 2; this displays the lighting without displaying the textures. What does your map look like?

    All black, except for props and viewmodel which are all flat grey.
    Here's my compile log. Could running vvis on fast be causing it? Because it didn't happen before I messed with lightmap scaling.

    Bounce #2 added RGB(nan, nan, nan) - This issue can come from things like a light entity in a wall or prop - check them to make sure they aren't

    The lights arent in anything, because I'm just testing the lights on the main stage are just floating. Also, that brush seems to have nothing wrong, at least not that I can see. Would you like a copy of the vmf to look at?

    Ah yes, the elusive FindPortalSide error. Most often accompanied by a leak and usually most easily fixed by sealing the leak, these can be a pain to fix when not accompanied by a leak. The solution is rarely obvious; often it takes messing with the candidate brush or nearby brushes to find the solution, even if none of those brushes appear to have a problem. For me, one, instance of this problem was fixed by func_detailing part of a wall. Another was caused by a cylindrical clip brush halfway across the map from the given coordinates and fixed by snapping the vertices to the grid. I suggest you try func_detailing, modifying, and/or deleting the candidate brush as your first course of action to see if that fixes it.

    Alright, I got the FindPortalSide error fixed by turning an intersecting wall into a func_detail, but there's still no lights at all.

    Fixed it myself by tracking down the degenerate faces and deleting them, I guess they were causing vrad to wonk out and not compile the lights.
