    I am making my first map and I have quite a majour problem before I can release my map.

    In Hammer all the textures are correct, but when I compile it and look at it in game, there are black strips going down it as seen below:

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    First thing to check is whether or not those particular textuers are PROP textures. If they are, they will appear black under a light source, and CANNOT be used. That's most likely you're problem.

    To avoid having to check, go into your Steam > File > Settings and under Betas participate in the SDK beta, it removes model textures from the browser so you don't accidently make this kind of error.

    looks like a degenerate face to me.

    Redo the brush, imo

    I've tried both above but neither have worked, is there any other ideas?

    Pray to the Hammer gods. That has fixed at least one of my problems that I have had.
