    Here is the long story of how I got very confused.

    I downloaded compile pal in an attempt to pack my map, and it looks awesome, yet ever since loading my map crashes tf2. If I load it via the console or via another compile (hammer or compile pal) makes no difference, tf2 still crashed midway through loading without any error messages. I have used interlopers error checker, and solved all problems it could find, until it started giving me the error that vvis was shown twice in my compile log, although i looked and it was not. (this appears to have gone away) I have verified the game file integrity, and I have no more ideas, other custom maps work just fine. I just retried compiling, and tf2 opened, but froze forever, and hammer also froze, so I couldn't get the compile log.

    Any help or ideas would be appreciated. I will post new information as I can find it.

    Thanks!

    Edit: I do have the error no player start, even though I do have player spawns. unlikely, but I thought I would mention it

    Could you please post the compile log? It may help locate the problem.

    The no player start error is something left over from another Source game (can't remember which), and it's due to not having an info_player_start entity. These entities are not used in TF2, so it is unnecessary to add it to your map. You can ignore this error, or if it really bugs you, chuck an info_player_start entity anywhere in your map- it shouldn't have any affect in TF2 except for adding 1 to your entity count.

    As per your original problem, I don't know. Posting the compile log might help us fix the problem, however.

    Good news and bad news, opening compile pal through winrar compiled correctly, bad news, although a fast compile produced lighting, a publish compile ended in full bright, and I can't use mat_Fulbright to remove it. Here is the compile log

    Your compile log seems fine. TF2 can also crash when game logic is set up incorrectly, shift trough your entities to see if anything's gone wrong.

    ok, problem solved. Opening compile pal through the zip fixed tf2's crashing, and enabling ldr and static prop lighting fixed the full bright.
