Ok, I'm still talking about my ffa5 project, for those of you that saw the previous thread. However, I'm having a new problem.
I am currently adding in a really cool lava processing plant that a friend made (and I am editing it a little). However.........just as I put the finishing touches on a certain rotating crankshaft........kaput.
Every time I try to load up the map in JAMP, it will crash just a millisecond after starting to load the BSP. And I am not the only one with this error, either. I know someone else who is having it, too. The problem is that it's not the function rotate. I know that I have a brush that just up and disappeared on me (due to the 'brush plane with no normal' thing).
Also, I'm getting MAX_MAP_VISIBILITY during the second stage of the compile. I was going to read the old thread on this, but it's gone. Also, I say this because is it possible that the two errors are linked?
Sometimes you feel like a N00B!...
Ok, I found out what caused JA to crash. I had a 'trigger_lightning' that was supposed to shock you if you got too close to a certain object. I probably had specified a bad FX file, that's all......however, I'm still getting MAX_MAP_VISIBILITY. Of course, as of now, I just skip the second stage of the compile anyway. However, I'd like to fix that. Also, one more thimg - can anyone tell me how to get custom sounds working?? lol I still feel like a n00b! :-P
quoted from lucasforums: 'MAX_MAP_VISIBILITY means you reached VIS's upper limit. However, it IS fixable. Anything brushes that aren't structural (ie. chairs, consoles, etc) should be made into detail brushes. Also make sure to use caulk on any non-visible faces.'
Oh.............that's easy. I'm heavy on caulking now. And detail brushes = easy. That's just a few minute fix, lol.
Thanks a lot!
Now if I can just stop the sporadic MAX_TW_VERTS from those dumb npcs. I know how to fix it, but I'm stubborn and do not wish to delete what is causing it, lol
