Ok so I let the map compile after fixing the leak. I took about four hours then at the end it said my map size was too large. Do you know what the max size is? Oh and is 4 hours a long time for a full compile? Since I'm new to this I don't know. Thanks again.SkiBo 09:04, 15 Jan 2008 (PST)
Don't write stuff on people's User pages, write on their Talk pages ;) My talk page is here! :)
Regarding the compile time, I reckon it can vary a lot with various factors (how well optimized your map is, how fast your processor is, how many high-consuming processes you might have running as well (avoid this), etc...). As Angry Beaver pointed out (see bellow), it's probably a question of optimization: try reading those links I posted on the Help Desk, I think they can be very helpful ;).
Regarding that "error" about the map size being too large, I haven't the slightest idea (I really don't know much about the tools) ... I hope someone else can help you out. Perhaps you should consider copying the result of your compile process and pasting it here, so that others can interpret what happened when you compiled your map. Keep on it! :) --Etset 15:31, 15 Jan 2008 (PST)

4 hours

4 hour compile times are gigantic. A compile should take <15 seconds for VBSP <1 minute vor VVIS and ~1 hour for VRAD at worst. Look into some of the optimization guides on the wiki --Angry Beaver 09:51, 15 Jan 2008 (PST)
