    Hello all I've recently gotten into mapping and so far I'm enjoying it however I'm having an issue as my map will not load at all. I looked at the compile log checker and I had zero issues there and I even looked at the "common tf2 map errors" or whatever thread and none of those were my problem. It just won't load. period.

    If anyone wants to take a look at my map to tell me what I've done wrong I'll attach it to this post but just keep in mind I was only making it to test that I'd be doing things correctly not to win any contests.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

    ALSO I don't want this problem fixed for me I simply want someone to tell me how to fix it so I know what to do in the future. I can't get any better if I don't learn anything.

    Hi there and welcome =)

    Judging on the file name the big "woops" is that you can not have a space in the file name.

    try "skybox_test" that should fix it right up =)

    Yep...that was it. I feel kind of dumb but I never read anywhere about spaces being no no's. Thanks a LOT for the help.

    Heres a useful link - http://www.interlopers.net/index.php?page=errors

    When you've got an error, copy the compile log into there and it finds most common errors and suggests ways to fix them. Its actually how I found out that you couldn't have spaces in filenames.
