Hello everyone,

Sorry to bother you all, but I'm making myself a new map, but am having problems with lighting.

I have indeed searched the forum for help on similar topics, but haven't found anything useful to this problem.

Basically, I've installed about 20 lights in my map, but when I go into cs and see the map itself, it's just really dark and rather dull. I've used light_environment, light_spot, and even done the default lighting in map properties to some ridiculous number.

Also I've put my textures in my cstrike folder, and when I start up the map it's fine, but other people cannot download it. Is this where I need to use wadinclude?

I've attached the log here so if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong here and could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it :)

Cheers
Ourkid

This happened to me once, just make the entities aren't jammed in a solid.

Don't use light_environments or light_spots. Just use the generic light. That should do it.

If you have any SKY you should use exactly 1 light_environment.

If you use custom textures you should use wadinclude:

hlcsg -wadinclude yourwad mapname


Just add the bold part to your existing compile script.

If your lights aren't working, try making them brighter (e.g. change 255 255 255 200 to 255 255 255 2000).

And make sure they are not touching anything. Lights should be floating in the air, in the room you want to light.
