HLBSP had a problem. Check fy_ravine.err for the error message.

If HLBSP is successful, it generates fy_ravine.prt for you before HLVIS runs.

It says you have no entities in your map. Add some player starts and lights and stuff.

Well not according to HLBSP.

Try opening your .MAP file instead of the .RMF

Sometimes you can't see the problem in the .RMF

Also make sure your entities are NOT touching nor in a floor/wall/solid whatever.

That is to be expected since HLBSP did not find any walled spaces with entities in them in your map.

Only walled spaces WITH entities inside make it to the BSP file.

Open your .MAP directly, not after decompiling.
