Run map gives me an error

It says:

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

Do you want to continue?

 [Yes]       [No]

"

Ok, so I’m running hammer on:

Engine Version: The Orange Box

Current Game: Half-Life 2: Episode Two

It saved the map as a .vmf, and the last paragraph of the compile process is:

** Executing…
** Command: Copy File
** Parameters: “C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\laharlsblade\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\first.bsp” “c:\program files\steam\steamapps\laharlsblade\half-life 2 episode two\ep2\maps\first.bsp”

Sooo… what the ****? Im sorry thats just really pissing me off! The map editor saves it as a .vmf then the damn thing goes and looks for a .bsp! I thought it was supposed to compile it into a .bsp! I even tried just renaming it, which did turn it into a Half-life map, without any complaint. Then I ran it again, and it went to the next paragraph of code, then just stopped. Here’s the last paragraph of that:

"
** Executing…
** Command: c:\program files\steam\steam.exe
** Parameters: -applaunch 420 -game “c:\program files\steam\steamapps\laharlsblade\half-life 2 episode two\ep2” +map “first”
"

Then it just stops. No error message, no completion message, it just stops. Can anyone help?

Post the entire compile log.

With the .bsp file I just renamed in the bin folder it looks like this:

That’s what it looks like if I click yes to continue anyway; if I click no it just subtracts the last paragraph.


**** leaked ****
Entity func_brush (302.00 -991.00 98.00) leaked!

You have a leak. View the pointfile to cover that area up. Map -> Pointfile if my memory doesn’t fail me.


HashVec: point outside valid range

This error is crashing the compile. Something is on the edge or beyond Hammer’s grid boundary.

Well thank you, both of you, but do I need the .bsp in the directory? Or will fixing those errors fix that too?

Fixing the errors will allow the .bsp to be written.

Thank you, its currently compiling, going great. :slight_smile:
