Actually you do, but you have to do more stuff manually (copy the map, start cs, select the map and stuff).
So yeah, you're much better off with the whole bat file.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Wait, wait, wait. You do have the .map and .bat files in the same folder as the hlcsg.exe, hlbsp.exe, hlvis.exe and hlrad.exe, right?

Because otherwise you have to specify the location of the file, not just its name...

EDIT:
Also

This should be hlvis vp_stuff

Well it was a fault in your bat file but I knew that fixing it wouldn't fix your problem because your problem already starts with hlcsg. It would just cause an error if you manage to fix the current one.

OK first of all, make sure that your mapname really is vp_jail1g_element-beta

Also something could be wrong with your compile tools, are you using the ones from this site?

The ZHLT tools, where did you get them? (the hlcsg, hlbsp, hlvis, hlrad and everything that comes with these)

Also did you export your map properly (in hammer File->Export to .MAP)?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

OK then I really have no idea.
For some reason the hlcsg can't seem to read the map file. So there's:
a) something wrong in the hlcsg line of the batch file
b) something wrong with hlcsg
c) something wrong with the .map file

But what it is, I have absolutely no idea.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Generate your playable BSP. Please remind me why you are not using a BAT file to do all this for you?

Because apparently it doesn't work for him. Or something. I don't know and I don't want to read the entire truck again to find out.
