Map won't compile?

Well, I set RunVis to normal, since it wouldn’t compile right (It said it was compiling, but when i ran the map, it was only the place where i last compiled it), I tried saving it under a different name, but, it stayed in the same spot…Its missing over 1/2 of my map…

The command failed. Windows reported the error:
  "The system cannot find the file specified."


And, that “The command failed. Windows reported the error:
“The system cannot find the file specified.””
Didn’t happen until I set RunVis to normal

Delete and remake brush #2396

Is there a space in your map name? I can’t read your box of text cause I’m on my phone. :frowning:

I have no idea how to do that, since i don’t know where brush #2396 is…
(this is my first somewhat serious map, and only my third or fourth map )

Use the brush finder.

Found it, and I don’t even remember putting that in the map…

Well, bad news…I saved it in multiple folders, now, when its saved in HL2Ep1, i get a DLL error, and when i save it to Garrysmod/Garrysmod/maps, i get that cannot find the file specified error…
It DOES generate a BSP file in the Ep1 folder, but not in the garrysmod/garrysmod/maps…

MORE NEWS! I found the problem! I keep getting the cannot find the file specified error…
the problem is (drum roll…) IT WON"T GENERATE ANY BSP FILES!

This is the worst time i’ve ever had mapping…In the console, it says "

CModelLoader::Map_IsValid: No such map ‘happymap’
map load failed: happymap not found or invalid"

I named it that when i renamed the file…

Here’s the new code…
