For those of you who compile maps via a batch file, here is a VERY good setup for a good compile.

> hulls.txt

Code:
hlcsg.exe -hullfile hulls.txt -nowadtextures "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\ESF_MapName" -wadautodetect -estimate -high %1
hlbsp.exe -estimate -high %1 "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\ESF_MapName"
hlvis.exe -estimate -high -full %1 "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\ESF_MapName"
hlrad.exe -lights "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\lights.rad" -high -extra -smooth -estimate %1 "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\ESF_MapName"
COPY "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\ESF_MapName.bsp" "C:\Half-Life\ESF\maps"
COPY "C:\Half-Life\MAPPING\ESF_MapName.pts" "C:\Half-Life\ESF\maps"

Also, check out Nem's Mapping Tools website for some useful tools including a visual batch compiler set-up (I have not used it yet).

u should have said that the .bat file needs to be in the same directory like the compile tools. :)

That is common sense, but you're right, too many people either lack common sense, are ignorant, or are lazy and don't look closely at the lines.

Well...I wouldn't say stupid, most people are just ignorant (which isn't the same as stupid)

If you never heard of mapping before, then it's no common sense, hell i don't even know what a .bat file is. If that makes me stupid, then screw you.

Whoa whoa whoa Cold Steel, calm down there turbo. I was talking about where to put the batch (.bat) file. I never said anything about being stupid if you didn't know that stuff, I said it's ignorance, which is not knowing that stuff, geeze.
