    I am trying to test out a map I made, but the game crashes everytime I try to start it. Here is the compile log

    Ok, check for any leaks in your map; this can be done by loading the pointfile of a map.

    Your compile log says there's been a leak, "**** leaked ****
    Entity filter_activator_tfteam (-192.00 16.00 32.00) leaked!"

    When you have a leak, visleaves don't form so everything in the map is rendered, this could partially be the reason why.

    I fixed the leak. It is saying there is an error with the skybox texture

    It's nothing to worry about. It's an error, but it doesn't do anything. However it can be bypassed with a custom skybox texture, but that's unnecessary.

    Unfortunately generic crashes are very hard to diagnose.

    The best thing to do is start systematically eliminating any posibility. Start by copying your entire map into a new VMF, and if that doesn't work, start cordoning each area of your map in ever smaller chunks until you identify the area causing it to crash. It will most likely be something random like a prop or a brush that when deleted will stop it crashing but there's no easy way to find it.

    Another way that may help find the problem is to make a big box of no draw around the map. If the map runs you can at least narrow it down to the area the problem is in by where the map acts wonky. Then you have an area to look in. If ya find the problem, then remove the no draw box after.

    It's not the best method but it does help sometimes in a pinch.

    This is what the cordon tool does (except better because it automatically generates the box for you)

    If it's not any of the above issues suggested, then it might be a problem with your entities.

    Does it crash immediately when loading the map? Or can you get to the screen where you select your team/class?
