Yes everything still has to be enclosed.

Just put the SKY texture on any exterior brush(es) in your map. The game will show sky there instead of the wall/floor/ceiling.

Make sure if you use SKY on a brush that you put it on ALL sides of the brush. You can't mix and match with it.

Use this .wad:

http://superjer.com/files/zhlt.wad

It has SKY in it.
SKY is also in halflife.wad.
If you use zhlt.wad, you must change your hlcsg line in your compile:

Quote:
hlcsg -wadinclude zhlt mapname


The underlined part is new, and will save zhlt.wad into your bsp so players won't need to find it to play your map.

It sounds like it can't find the .wav file you told it to use.

Where is the file on your system? And what did you enter for the path to the file in your ambient_generic's properties?

Is the file a .wav?

You can't use mp3. I don't know about any size limits. You might want to try a smaller file first.

Also, if your file is at:

cstrike\sounds\music\beastie.wav

then your ambient_generic should have:

music/beastie.wav

Notice the FORWARD slash.
