Hello all,

I know what that error is all about.. but I am trying to fix it and I just can't do it!!! I tried everythign I can.. I even changed all the outer (unnecessary) SKY textures to NULL.. and I still get the same error.. I took off a lot of unnecessary SKY textures and I still get the same error.. It's pissing me off.. I can't fix it!

I even took out all the unnecessary SKY textures in two of the arenas and just put a plain simple sky box around the whole map.. and NULLed the outsides too.. This is getting frustrating.

I uploaded the rmf so you guys could look at it and IF you can please fix it for me.. or if you can guide me on how to do it!!

RMF: Removed.

you will have to simplify some parts of the map theres no other way, make some of the pillars, dentations, rocks in to func_wall will probably healp allot, also try to se if you can compile the map using different cliping modes with the toos Empyre just toold you about. if you are having a hard time using the command lines try the batch compiler by nem and the specification file i made for the compiler i question


i didnt say this someone else posted to your same problem at another forums ...

Did you say you stuck a box around the whole map? The best thing to do is instead put a box at the edges, only covering what can be seen (and obviously meeting the rest of the geometry to avoid leaks).

Look at the rmf that I provided in the post so you can see what I am talking about..

Also fedex_ I have no idea what you're talking about haha.. If you could tell me what you mean exactly and tools are you referring to that would be awesome..

By the way.. What is causing this error.. the sky textures on my map?? or the brushes that are on the maps themselves?? I am asking this so I can know from where to start.. if the sky boxes are fine or not.. etc.

MAX_MAP_CLIPNODES

There isn't any way to add more nodes or clipnodes to the bsp's (its already maxed out). However, at least clipnodes can be reduced with a bit of work.

When the maps are compiled all the 3d 'space' a player can get to is broken up into convex regions just like brushes are required to be, alot of them are extremely small or too small for a player, and if you put a CLIP brush over them they don't become clipnodes at all (well really there are still a few intersecting the brush on its surfaces, but the brush can be excluding dozens or hundreds of them at a time).

If the world has had a 'box' placed around it to prevent leaks, its probably causing several thousand (if not 10000+) extraneous nodes and clipnodes to be caused, not only wasting resources but will cause vis to work a lot harder than it needs to. An example map is available, demonstrating how it is possible to reduce the clipnodes in a map. Without the clip brush in place, the map requires over a hundred more clipnodes to define the player-accessable space.

http://www.slackiller.com/tommy14/errors.htm#clipnode


I think DR and fedex is right on this one.

I think your main problem here is the two fy_maps (the one that uses dust-textures and the other which got snow on the ground and some mill in the center), those two maps needs to be completly rebuilt(clean up brushwork) plus they need to have a correctly built sky.

Of course, even after you've done all that it still may not compile. You just have to accept that this map may be too big/complex for the compile tools to handle.
QUACK! QUACK!

but I am not a guy that gives up on this! O.o and I know that it can be done since there's a map that's the same exact idea as mine that's called de_duztec..

Now I didn't understand what fedex was talking about.. like who's Empyre and what does he mean by try to compile the map with different nodes.. and I still don't understand what clipnodes are exactly?? Like maybe if I understand what it is, I could then reduce those clipnodes that the error is talking about.. Also, should I convert a couple of walls, boxes on the maps to func_wall?? will that work?

Empyre was probably talking about the different cliptypes that can be set on hlcsg. You could try -cliptype smallest which should create the smallest amount of clipnodes possible, of course it will do so on behalf of other stuff, it will probably cause "sticky corners" and other unwanted things.

Turning stuff into func_wall may lower the amount of clipnodes, i'm not really sure but I guess it's worth a shot.

Anyway, as I said in my earlier post, your main-problem is probably the two decompiled fy-maps. Start with what DR said and build correct skyboxes for the two fy-maps. That should reduce clipnodes quite a lot. Also that propeller-thingy on the top of that mill or whatever it is, turn it into func_illusionary or just delete it, cuz its fucked up and sliced into hundreds of pieces.
QUACK! QUACK!

@ KD.. Well here's the what's going on... When I compile with this version of ZHLT, it works fine (i.e. it doesn't give me the Exceeded MAX_CLIPNODES error)... with the newest ZHLT it gives me that..

But with the ZHLT that I am currently using gives me the Exceeded MAX_PATCHES error when I run hlrad.. when I don't run hlrad it does compile.. But the fps is terrible! (I did expect that btw)..

I saw a post that superjer made one time about this..

He says: "To make the lighting less detailed, change your hlrad line like this:

hlrad -chop 256 mapname "

I did that and it gave me an error.. do I need to change the 256 number? make it less.. more...??


@ Vita: And about the wads yes I know it's too much I am only testing it now.. What I am going to do so people don't have to download so many unnecessary wads.. I am going to take out all the textures that this map uses and put them in one (de_dusterno.wad). That will make the download MUCH easier for people. I mean tfc2.wad is 11MB! so that's not good.

P.S. I don't use a batch file to compile the map.. I do it directly from VHE.. For some odd reason it works for me that way better than using a batch file.. But I have a feeling I am going to need to compile this map using a batch file. :D

P.P.S.: KD that webpage you gave me says this: "then the #1 fix is running HLRAD with the -sparse flag - but compile will be slower." How do I do that?? what's the -sparse flag-?

P.P.S.(1): Should I post the rmf/map with the wads and you guys can look at it and if u can make a quick fix if you see something wrong with it? Like can you guys do that for me? Maybe there's something that I am doing wrong? And btw the textures etc on those decompiled maps, I will redo them and make them better.. but I am talking about the outter walls, skies.. etc. Btw what I have now is a lot different than the first rmf.. in fact I am going to take that link off.

P.S. I don't use a batch file to compile the map.. I do it directly from VHE.. For some odd reason it works for me that way better than using a batch file.. But I have a feeling I am going to need to compile this map using a batch file. :D

It's usually better to compile using a batch file as hammer requires way more resources to put it simply.

P.P.S.: KD that webpage you gave me says this: "then the #1 fix is running HLRAD with the -sparse flag - but compile will be slower." How do I do that?? what's the -sparse flag-?

In the hlrad line of your batch file write hlrad -sparse mapname

P.P.S.(1): Should I post the rmf/map with the wads and you guys can look at it and if u can make a quick fix if you see something wrong with it? Like can you guys do that for me? Maybe there's something that I am doing wrong? And btw the textures etc on those decompiled maps, I will redo them and make them better.. but I am talking about the outter walls, skies.. etc. Btw what I have now is a lot different than the first rmf.. in fact I am going to take that link off.

Well, I would but the computer on which I have VHE and everything else is currently in the state of fucked up (to be more precise the CPU fan isn't working properly) so unfortunately I can't help you there.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

So which one should I choose? the -sparse? or the -chop? I think superjer was talking about the -chop? And what value should I put there?

Also I will compile it again using the batch file and see what errors it gives me other than the exceeded max_patches..

Also will see what error it gives me when I do hlrad -chop 256 mapname
Bandora = tomato in arabic.. GOT IT? :)

Try them one at a time and see which one works best.

I would start with -sparse, if that one doesn't work i would try -chop #.
QUACK! QUACK!
