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

Obviously it’s not normal, but i can’t see anything that i can fix.

What the frick is wrong, and how do i fix it?

Thanks.

  1. IMG tags work like this: [noparse][/noparse]

  2. use code tags for your compile log

  3. Don’t use a . in a filename, because the compiler is now looking for a ._dog file and not a .vmf file.

And that’s far from normal, all three compilers don’t even run.

<Snip>

obvious “strider_ vs._dog”"

Space and full stop in the name. Easy.

Oh…and try using the damn sticky for stuff like this. This is the third thread on this page that you have posted which could have been answered through the mappers encyclopedia.

Why the hell would you put a . into your filename anyway?

Vs. as in versus.

I didn’t know names actually had anything to do with it :S I feel like an idiot now.

What are the tags for codes?

Edit: Thankyou everyone for helping.

message too short.

I think I’ve had this error before, check your file path for which game hammer chooses to run the map on, make sure its valid.
Hey, call it bad reading if you want, but I believe the error is locating the .bsp/ other files for compiling, which should be in the game directory of your current engine game such as Ep2.
