So, I begin to compile my map using the batch file, and I've been using the batch for sometime now, but when I compiled my map yesterday, it hung at Leaf thread 60% and I left it for 2 hours! its usually done in almost 1 hour. So last night I said ugh, I'll give it some time, so I thought overnight compile would be good like 7 hours of time and it has to compile fully then, but this morning once again disappointed, the LeafThread Hung at 60% not moving at all. Could someone help me with my problem?

If it's a large map, it may need a lot of time to compile. You don't get any error messages or anything?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Nope, see I know how long they take, the first couple times compiling when making a map is short. then it gets longer and longer, the compile b4 this one only took 56 mins or so, and I left it on over night and its still on Leaf 60% which is 1-7 hours

Could you post your .bat file please? And which tools are you using to compile?

Try compiling with the 3.4 zhlt tools (this one if you're on a 64-bit OS).

It could be that your computer is getting to the 60% mark and running out of RAM, therefore starting to have to use Virtual Memory (which is an area of your HDD and is thus a lot slower).

You could be right maybe, maybe, but I have 2gigs of ram, and figured maybe its ok with just 2, the map file before I compile it is exactly 1.2 megabytes.

its like 5 large grid squares by 5 large grid squares, but I recently noticed my stand by coming on every hour, maybe that's the problem? cause it usually compiles I guess b4 the "stand by" on my laptop, but I recently added 2 cranes to my map about medium sized cranes, so maybe now it compiles over 1 hour and stand by slows it staggeringly? hanging at 60%. I dunno but I'm gonna take off my stand by option and see if it compiles fully. Wish me luck...
(Stand by is basically computer sleep mode, I'm sure you all know that :P)

Oh I got a question, how do I put Hlvis on fast mode when compiling the map with a batch? and is it good to put it on fast mode?

Add the flag -fast in the batch file.

hlvis mapname -fast
(also try adding -chart -estimate)

The fast option is useful but it's not to be used for final compiles.

And yes, you may want to turn the automatic standby off.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

See, the things you suggested worked, but it fully compiles with lots of warnings
Warning: Leaf portals saw into leaf
Problem at portal between leaves 700 and 551:

and there are eight more warnings like that one, is it bad? or should I pay it no mind?
