Hmmm.... not good. I've never seen that before and all I could find about it was this:

Quote:
"file read failure"
There is a problem reading the file. The possible causes and possible solutions vary so much I cannot list them ALL here, but for a HL/mod game a few are:

* corrupt bsp, needs replacing
* corrupt MOD or HL program needs replacing - a virus?
* corrupt sprite/wav/model/wad
* a bad HardDrive sector that is not reading well or at all
* a program is interfering with the game program
* and many others are possible.


It doesn't even say WHICH file has the problem... niiiice. It could be the .map or a .wad or just about anything. Can you still compile other map(s)?
Maybe try removing some WADs temporarily?

Ive actually been able to compile other maps. I think it might just be the wads because notice how it messes up before the wads. Hm...its bugging me though.

"No entities exist in hull 0" means you have no entities inside your map.
