    So I started RED's Spawn with Nodraw textures. As soon as I start applying the textures, one of the walls start swapping between the same texture, making it look messy.

    I don't know how to fix this, as I am the only beginner at this, so I tend to make a ton of mistakes.

    You probably have another brush embedded in it. Try deleting it and seeing if there is another in there.

    If i understand what you are saying correctly, you have 2 brushes on top of each other.

    I just want the remaining to be textured. I can send you a file about it over Dropbox and you can see what I did wrong.

    Maybe just a screenshot would suffice? I assume it is weird looking lines of different textures swapping around as you move? Generally that's what is called Z-Fighting, which is when two brushes are flush with each other and their textures are fighting each other.

    But honestly, move the brush. If there's another brush underneath, delete it. Problem mostnlikely solved in about two seconds.

    I've already solved this issue. I removed the brush then applied texture to all surfaces.

    EDIT: Instead of making a new thread, I want to ask this problem I have. Whenever I run my map, it's pitch black. But whenever I move around my HUD, that will be stuck to the pitch darkness. How do I fix this? I have 4 light entities (for each corner).

    Sounds like you don't have spawn point on the map and you are spawning in the void.

    It is also possible the spawn point is not clear, rise to spawn from ground a bit and make sure there is no props or brushwork near the spawn.

    Why don't I send you a dropbox file so you can see what I did wrong?
