Okay, classic problem again: I have a LEAK in my map. For the moment i surrounded it with a big box for testing the rest at speed, but as the rule says 'NEVER SURROUND YOUR MAP WITH A BIG BOX', i need a sollution. I loaded up a pointfile, but after a few dozen units the line collides with another line, and i get completely lost as to where the leak might be. The places on my 2D's where the line exits seem to be all closed off and safe. Weird enough the box isn't really affecting compilation time in anything really big, nor does it cause lag in game.
Also, if i place a URL, how do i make it show another text than the URL itself?
I am already quite familiar with leaks, but i have checked most places, it doesn't appear to be leaking. So what is going wrong then? No entities out of map either.

Great, i post it, i go back to hammer, and i find it. Really me...
Problem was that i had not made any ground under a structure, which was a little too high as follows. Invisible leak, still a leak.

Anyways, still, how do you make sense of a pointfile that goes crazy?

About leaks, make sure to load the .lin-file instead of the .pts-file, the lin-files are usually easier to follow.

(And be sure to use Hammer 3.5 so you can the lines in the camera-window.)


Personally I like to start from the outside of the map and trace the line until I see where the line goes inside the map, that's where the leak is.
QUACK! QUACK!

How do you load the .lin file then? I simply click 'load pointfile' in hammer.
Btw. im using hammer 3.4, an idea where i can find 3.5?

"Map"--->"Load pointfile". If it asks you to load "default pointfile" choose "No" and load the .lin-file for your map.

Google "Hammer 3.5"????????

Please note: Hammer 3.5 is an upgrade for version 3.4, you first need to have 3.4 installed, then replace the old hammer.exe with the new one.


QUACK! QUACK!
