I've just made a beginner map in Valve Hammer Tool and created the .bat file just like the tutorial says, but it won't work
Need some serious help

I named my map "test" and this is what i wrote in the .bat file:

@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures test
hlbsp test
hlvis test
hlrad test
copy test.bsp "E:\Spill\Counter-Strike 1.6\cstrike\maps"
cd E:\Spill\Counter-Strike 1.6
pause
hl -dev -console -game cstrike +sv_cheats 1 +map test

This was in the error txt file:

hlcsg: Error: Could not open wad file \spill\counter-strike 1.6\cstrike_norwegian\cstrike.wad

hlcsg: Error: Could not find WAD file
Description: The compile tools could not locate a wad file that the map was referencing.

Howto Fix: Make sure the wad's listed in the level editor actually all exist

It exist and I don't know what to do, maybe just some noobish thing I skipped

Do you have multiple harddrives? If so, make sure everything is on the same harddrive.
QUACK! QUACK!

That worked but when I try to start the map it says:

map change failed: "mapname" not found on server.
Why does it say "mapname"? My map is called test...

are you sure that you changed ALL the 'mapname' words in your .bat file into test?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

A single word i forgot to change, I feel a little ashamed right now

But one last question:

many people says you should write prob_static in object to insert props or something like that, but I can't write that.

Where can I find my props so I can make map with tables, vending machines and chairs? (Don't mean to hassle, but I just want to know all at once)

don't know what a prop or prob is (yeah, I'm a noob, deal with it ), but I'm pretty sure that chairs and tables are already implemented into the editor as prefabs. So all you have to do is to select one of them from the prefab drop-down menu and insert them. I think.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

I have found a prefab factory, but don't know how to use it(it contains all of the stuff I need)

Also I saw a tutorial on youtube and he said that i should write in prob_static, but where, I can't write in object

I'm getting a little annoyed

to insert a prefab just select it from the drop down menu and press 'Insert original prefab'.

But if you're asking how to get a downloaded prefab into that menu, then I have no idea.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Go back to the main-window of Hammer, select the Selection tool(shift+S) then to the right you got two dop-down menu's, under "Categories:" you can choose the prefab category, and under "Objects:" the object you want to insert, then just press the "Insert original prefab"-button.
QUACK! QUACK!
