    Hi there. I'm having problems with Vis leafs (vvis) taking forever to compile/crashing (yes it does crash its not loading) and I made sure every odd brush was func_detail so is there anyway I can fix/see the problem? I also checked out Interlopers.net for a tutorial on how to do this but it didn't help. I've been able to temporarily fix the by turning the map into a prefab then starting a new map and then compiling it. Thanks to anyone who can give me a good response on this.

    First,

    Do a bsp only compile of your map.

    Check for leaks (load pointfile)
    Then, check your portalfile. This will give you a bunch of blue lines. wherever there is cluster of them all together, that will take a while to calculate.

    1) No one is going to steal it
    2) If they are going to steal it, they'll just decompile it when you post it

    Hey man, be sure that this comunity is way more "professional" than you tend to think, nobody give a fuck of your map because :

    1 - You map is probably awfull since you are posting for a visleaves problem.
    2 - Everyone here who leave you some solutions are also probably better than you and don't need to stole the work of another man to do a map.

    So stop to be awkward and post your map here, you don't have anything to loose, really.

    EDIT: Oh didn't see the last post btw, it's cool that you have found the problem by yourself.

    To be 100%, Visleafs can be tricky especially if you have funky geometry. Some early rust versions had vis problems that took me a few days to solve, was rust awful? Not really.

    Please be a little nicer next time when newer people post problems.

    I'd probably agree with you.
