My friend is making his 1st map and he has a problem. Every time he try's to open the map in JA he gets an error, it says something like this: ERROR: SV_SetBrushModel.
So if anybody knows how to fix it, please tell me so I can help him. Thank you.
Sorry, ERROR: SV_SetBrushModel NULL*

Oh, thank you!
[COLOR=Navy]I'm not sure it will working, but in my Radiant it could fix the problem:D[/COLOR]
if you're using something like a func_rotating, or func_breakable, it could be that you're missing an origin brush.
There is a bug in Radiant that messes up the mapfile by blocking together entities and brushes that are not connected. There is an easy way out of this. Simply select everything in the entire map and then copy it. Start a new map and then paste and resave the map. That will fix your problem. Recompile.
[COLOR=Navy]Then I had bad idea...sorry:([/COLOR]
It wasn't a bad idea. That is the other reason for the error, but most unlikely. I have never needed to use brush cleanup and getting brushes that are less than one unit thick is very hard unless you do it on purpose.
There are three causes of the error:
If you have a brush entity with just an origin brush or just curve patches in it, you will bet the error. (Brush entities need some "mass" to them.)
Sometimes you have a brush that somehow shoots off into infinity or is way too small for the engine to feasibly handle, and those will give you the error. Brush cleanup can fix those.
Here's the BIG one, though: If you use Radiant 1.5, it randomly creates entities with no brushes, which creates a modification of situation 1. You'll have to press L, find the brushless entity on the list, and delete it.
