Leak Problem and PointFile Problems

I’m getting a leak from somewhere. but when i complile the map and go to load point file, the Load Point file, and unload pointfile, appears twice:

Load Pointfile
Unload Pointfile
Load Pointfile
Unload Pointfile

When i click load on the first one, it loads the “default pointfile” which is just a straight red line someone out in space pointing from nothing to nothing, so that doesnt help me.

and when i click load on the other Load Pointfile it opens up a windows menu looking for mapname.prt which it can’t find. What the heck is wrong?! It’s driving me up a wall.

Are you sure that the other options aren’t Load Portalfile and Unload Portalfile? The compile process won’t generate a Portalfile (.prt) if you have a leak.

So have you func_detailed a brush that points out in the void? Have you accidently put a prop in the void? Post your compile log.

Try to go to those coordinates, and you might find the entity that’s leaking. That way you might know how to seal it from the void or remove it if it’s far out of place.

Thats what I’ve been doing, and like, I’d find something that was leaking, fix it, then the coordinates would just be where the point file is, somewhere randomly in space.

Make sure you don’t have an entity with it’s origin set out in the middle of nowhere.

The origin of some entity is located at those coordinates in space, most likely because you accidentally moved a brush entity with Ignore Groups on. Go to Map->Map Properties at the top to select the entire map, then see if you can find those coordinates in the 2D views - you should see a small round circle representing the origin of the entity. (Make sure you have View->Show Helpers checked too.) You can then click and drag that circle back into the map. Additionally, when you click it, a line will appear tracing back to whatever entity it belongs to, so you could also just find that entity, select it, then go to Tools->Center Origins.

That should fix it.

In other words, you posted a pointlessly lengthy version of what I stated before you? Dang, I salute you in your efforts to explain things well =D

How are you fixing it?
