    I want to make a modification to upward, but I can't find a working vmf. All I have is the crappy decompiled version that is so buggy I can't even get it to compile.

    Decompiles are imperfect but often the only way to get the VMF of a map without being given it - to get it compiling again, your first step is probably to fix up areaportals, then move on to other errors that you get in the compile log

    To fixed the Decompiled VMF:

    Open notepad, and replace the glitched character with... a spacebar, if I remember correctly.

    To get your own VMF: Download the Java JDK, and download BSPSRC. Run Upward through that.

    Good luck!

    As Squishy said, decompiles are imperfect, and usually cause optimization brushes such as areaportals to become slightly misaligned, causing your compile to fail. BSPSource automatically makes a visgroup with optimization brushes that require your attention, so take a look at it in the user visgroups window.

    There is no "perfect" Upward VMF available as Valve has not released one. The only VMFs for Valve TF2 maps out there are the ones that came with the Source SDK ten billion years ago. You can find those here, just be aware that most of them are outdated now, as bug fixes have hit some of them.
