ignore this thread.
This was in line 5132:
"OnTakeDamage" "escapesticky,AddOutput,OnTakeDamage ",0,-1"
which made everything go down.
Don't even think trying to reply to my absolute deficit in simple mapping.
(did I go too far?)
I should say this every time I post a map update.
What? What even happened?
If you could clarify what the problem was, that'd be good. I'd also like to change the thread name back, for the sake of anyone in future googling for your error - that okay?
This has happened to me before and I used this to fix the issue https://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=899004
The problem is that you've put a " in your input/output system. Hammer, when loading a .vmf, starts and stops reading individual blocks of text when it sees quotes. If there's a quote in the middle of a block of text, it stops reading too early and breaks.
The solution is to remove the " after OnTakeDamage.
I know. How do I lock or delete my threads?
You shouldn't delete the thread. Someone could come across the same problem. If they find this thread, they'll be able to fix it, and won't have to make an identical thread.
Separate names with a comma.
