hlbsp: Error:
A LEAK is a hole in the map, where the inside of it is exposed to the
(unwanted) outside region. The entity listed in the error is just a helpful
indication of where the beginning of the leak pointfile starts, so the
beginning of the line can be quickly found and traced to until reaching the
outside. Unless this entity is accidentally on the outside of the map, it
probably should not be deleted. Some complex rotating objects entities need
their origins outside the map. To deal with these, just enclose the origin
brush with a solid world brush

>>>>>now i have tried opening the pointfile version of the map in valve hammer and i think i have been successful cos there are fat red lines bouncing all over the grids. however, i cannot see any dotted lines anywhere so i cant follow anything to reach the leak.
i cant see anywwhere a leak could be and it has only occurred very recently after i added some more ladders to my map.
i have also tried adding a box around everything and that worked but ive got rid of it cos apparently that is a rubbish solution and also when i played on the map it said something about the AI may be poor because of a different version (or somethingorother...???) and also when i shot a hostage (cos it seemed like it was one of the many entities now involved in the problems) the map just quit. just like that. no reason.

also it appears that the leak is on one half of the map but everything involved seems fine and the "errors" are at all different hights andpostitions on this side, but most are at one area so might indicate a leak but there are no obvious gaoing holes (and im not an idiot i do know roughly what im doing)

please help as i have spent ages building this map and its nearly finished but atm it looks like i may have to scrap it - so where is the leak or what is the problem??

thanks a lot,
j

>>>if it will be helpful my entire error thing is as follows:

Seems like there is 3 leaks.

This is what I do to find leaks.



I make a box around certain ends of the map until I can compile without a leak. Once I compile without a leak, I look inside the boxed areas and find the leak.

Finding leaks is a a very tedious job, but I'm sure if you took your time you'd find them.

The entities listed are where the leaks are POSSIBLE to be found. Not exactly, but it tries to find the closest entity to give you an idea.

You probably just plugged the leak accidentally while moving things around.

The red lines from the pointfile can be helpful to find the leak sometimes. The lines SHOULD go through the leak hole if you keep looking.

I'd guess he just moved accidently some light entitys outside his "world"

But wait i need too ask you something... Do u use walls with that contain entitys like func_illusionary beceause i think that can occur a leak too.

Like commenting out code to find a bug.
