I would think your processor would probably make the biggest difference, but I'm not sure on that, so you'll have to wait for someone else to confirm/deny it.

Mostly that, but maybe faster RAM? Quite a lot of data gets moved around so that might help. Also, not doing silly things as far as constructing the map goes helps too.

The easiest way to compile faster is to make your map suck less (eg optimize it). Remove things that you don't need, use less entities, make VIS happy, etc.

I think it's the processor.Most times it goes to 100% usage and the pc is laggy (like opening a window) when i'm compiling.

x2 2.7 ghz ... just how the fuck did Valve compile the maps back then?Wit pentium 3?I bet it took about a month

How bad is your computer?

For test builds, you can do -fast for vis and rad which can speed it up. Or skip them altogether.

Ten years ago it was not uncommon to have to wait 10+ hours for a compile so quit complaining.

If it does take 10 hours, why don't you go to the outside?

Make sure to compile with a .bat-file and not directly from Hammer.

Also, make sure to close down any unnecessary programs that may run in the background.

Otherwise, do as sprinkles says and optimize the map.
