hlbsp: Error:
A LEAK is a hole in the map, where the inside of it is exposed to the
(unwanted) outside region. The entity listed in the error is just a helpful
indication of where the beginning of the leak pointfile starts, so the
beginning of the line can be quickly found and traced to until reaching the
outside. Unless this entity is accidentally on the outside of the map, it
probably should not be deleted. Some complex rotating objects entities need
their origins outside the map. To deal with these, just enclose the origin
brush with a solid world brush


hlbsp: Error: Exceeded MAX_LEAF_FACES
Description: This error is almost always caused by an invalid brush, by having huge rooms, or scaling a texture down to extremely small values (between -1 and 1)
Howto Fix: Find the invalid brush. Any imported prefabs, carved brushes, or vertex manipulated brushes should be suspect

The first problem (The Leak) is because there is a hole in your map somewhere. What I mean by a whole is that there is a place where your brushes didn't meet exactly and there is a gap between the inside of your map and the black region outside the map. Also there might be an entity inside a wall, or outside the map.

The second problem is caused if you have a huge brush or a really small texture. What probably happened is that when you saved it as a .map some brushes exploded. Open the .map and see what it looks like.

Go to File> Open and change it from searching for RMFs to searching for MAP files. (Drop-Down box near the bottom of the box)

Ok I fixed all the errors but its still says in the ERR file that I have leak and when I run the BAT file its says:
Quote:
warning: LEAK in hull 1


How to fix it?

And when I run the map in CS its says "cant find the credit.wad"
where should I put the credit.wad?

Thank you

okay when it says leak u could be there fordays trying to find it and if it is simple it should show up but most of the time it is very hard to pinpoint so just make a box around your map in every view to block off any leaks



as for credit.wad copy it or just place it in cstrike folder

Yes the box is the easiest way, but isn't the most efficient.

The most efficient way is to find your leak.

Open your .MAP like more and then go to (At the top) Map>Load Pointfile and then browse to the directory that contains the pointfile for your map. If a message appears asking if you want to use the default pointfile choose yes.

Now you'll see a lot of lines that appear on your map. Follow the lines from inside your map and they will lead you to your error. This could take a long time because the lines don't always lead you directly to the leak.

Putting a box around the map is WORSE than keeping the leak.

Just because it gets your map to compile does NOT mean it is fixed.

The reason the compilers stop when they find a leak is because leaks add unnecessary space and surfaces to your map and are very BAD for the game engine. Your box will hide the problem from the compilers but the problem is still there.

Also you will not be able to put NEARLY as much stuff into your map if you use the box trick. You will run into limits very much faster.

Your entities are not leaks.

The entity mentioned is just an entity NEAR the leak. Entities have nothing to do with leaks. Fix the hole(s) in your map.

One thing you can use in Hammer is Map->Load Pointfile.

The Pointfile will show you the path HLBSP followed to find your leak.

To load from map just go to File > Load and change it from looking for .rmf to looking for .map
