well any custom textures ?
i guess that "simple" means that you don't have any huge , complicated brushes and not to many entities so texture is the only thing that pops in my mind

EDIT : and a noter thing what kind of commands do you have in your .bat file ( ex -nowadtextures ) some of these will slow down your comply
Wtf is that ? its a bird ! no its a plane ! amm maybe its a plastic bag . NO ! its SUPERJER ! the greatest super hero ever!

hmm so nothing complex in the map

thats strange .. do you have a slow pc ? ( or not enough virtual memory , or something like that )
even with all the commands in the comply line and like 20 wads added in your .bsp file wouldn't take 2 hours , normally


EDIT : we need to convince aaronjer to let superjer out of slavery so he can help out in hammers section ( already there are several problems that need his expertise )

If you post your system specs (primarily processor speed as it doesn't sound like you'll be using much RAM) and settings (i.e. contents of your bat file) then we'd have a better idea. If you have a lot of other programs running too then that could be causing problems.

yeah i once had winamp , about 5 pages in firefox , yahoo msg , corel photo paint running , along side a comply that took me ages ... then went out for a moment and the screen saver came up , i tried to press buttons click with the mouse but it wouldn't start up .. so after like 30 minutes i had to restart the pc
and then waited another hour for it to comply next time
