I'm having trouble with a map I've made that insists on crashing every time I try to load it. I've tried removing things in folders like scripts relevant to the level, adding them back in and removing music and textures, but all I seem to get is the game crashing with no warning just before it gets to the part where the blue bar is beaming across the screen.

Obviously there is something wrong in the .map file, or it isn't compiling right. It is a big map, and is now taking around 16 mins to build (:rolleyes: ), which is why I'm hating recompiling each time I add/ remove entities and things from the map to see what could be wrong. I'm getting no error messages as far as I can see in the build console, and I have no idea what to do.

Are there any suggestions as to what I could do to fix this? (Preferably without me having to rebuild the entire map)

This is a bit of an obscure one to fix, so if you need to see the map you can tell me and I could upload it.

Do you have a spawn point in the map? I don't know of a lot of things that crash the game before you reach the loading bar.

Yeah, post the .map, it'll help greatly.

16 minute compiles is nothing. :D I've had maps that take 12 hours.

[COLOR=Navy]I had this problem too, I could fix it, to I deleted a part of a map, what's made after the last compile, and if the game crahes again, delete an other part, and do it more times. When you see, the game can load your map, you will know, what was the problem, and then you should re-make that part of the map. I don't know, maybe you can't understand it, because I can speak English bad, but I hope I could help to you:D [/COLOR]

NAB622;4802016Do you have a spawn point in the map?

[COLOR=Navy] I think, if this problem is there, then the game isn't crashes, that's usually giving a message, about this: "[/COLOR][COLOR=Navy][COLOR=Red]No Spawn Point Found[/COLOR][/COLOR][COLOR=Navy]". So I think, it's not the problem...[/COLOR]

Judging by his post and my experience, the game window is just disappearing without warning or an error report message.

[COLOR=Navy]Yes, I think he has the same error: "Send Error Report" (Or something, I have Hungarian version, and I translated that:D)[/COLOR]

Good translation. No engrish in it.

Actually, if this is what I'm thinking it is, you don't even get an error report message. The game just disappears. No warning, no messages, no screen flashes, nothing. Just *poof* gone.

try it with a dedicated server with game logging on and see if the log picks up anything right b4 it crashes that can tell you something (probabally not) or u can try to quickly screenshot the window right as it dissapears

First I must say, this is a SP map for my mod, second yes I have an info_player_start, and third, could a custom npc be doing it?

I suddenly realised that I'd included an npc spawner, but not put the .npc file into the ext_data folder.

If this IS the problem, (which I'm now going to check) then I feel... stupid.:uhoh:

[COLOR=Navy]Try to fix it with an *.npc file, and tell us, if it's working, or it isn't... And NAB,I didn't think the JA's message, the JA is disappearing, and theWindows give a message "Send Bug Report", or something...forme, maybe you don't get this Windows message...[/COLOR]
