He was trying to help you. No need to get upset over that.

I think you may need to download ZHLT again. I'm not sure if it is a ZHLT problem or an actual map problem though.

We're bad? You're the one with the problem. I'm sorry that we haven't experience the problem before. We're just giving suggestions.

Oh, and at least I'm not horrible at typing as you are.

Please learn manners when asking for help.

People will not want to help you if you don't use them.
If you jump high enough you'll hurt your ankles when you land.

What the fuck is this a soap opera??!?


Cowboy you need to check your log file for an HLBSP error.

HLBSP is supposed to generate the .prt files, if everything goes correctly.

and once again superjer is the only 1 who actually realises ive TRIED ALREADY to fix the problem myself. im not some lazy guy who at the first sign of trouble runs like little girl to her dad (these forums) for help.
yes ive tried reinstalling ZHLT, yes i reinstalled hammer. i even formatted for f***s sake.
-------------------------
oh wow...

u need to replace "mapname" with the actual...name...of...your...map.
-------------------------
if u knew anything about ZHLT u would know your map name doesnt matter, u could name your map "zhlt_sucks_i_hope_it_gives_me_an_error" and it would have no bearing on the decompilation process.
also i apologise for being "rude", but people who take time out to help some1 and make a post should really use their brian before clicking that shiny and alluring submit button.

Cowboy: The problem is, half the questions on here ARE THAT STUPID. People really do use the wrong mapname and etc all the time. There's no way for us to tell just HOW stupid you are if we don't ask.

In this case though, the missing portal file ALWAYS means HLBSP borked.

I googled the error and this is what Tommy of Escondido got me.

[code:1]This can be a tough one. If the error causing it is clearly named in the .log of the compile with coordinates, then it is easy to fix. However, if the error is not showing up, it is time to go hunting. You could look at Token too large or some of the other errors. Check your Sky environment name, Wad count, ect. You may even try reinstalling a new copy of the compile tools in case they got corrupted, it has happened![/code:1]

Look for something along those lines, and it might help.

Since it doesn't say where the error is located, you might want to go piece by piece through the map and remove any "iffy" situations that you believe could be a source of the problem.
