This may be harmless, and if no strange side effects are occurring, then
it can safely be ignored. However, if your map starts exhibiting strange

Error:
A LEAK is a hole in the map, where the inside of it is exposed to the
(unwanted) outside region. The entity listed in the error is just a helpful
indication of where the beginning of the leak pointfile starts, so the
beginning of the line can be quickly found and traced to until reaching the
outside. Unless this entity is accidentally on the outside of the map, it
probably should not be deleted. Some complex rotating objects entities need
their origins outside the map. To deal with these, just enclose the origin
brush with a solid world brush

Your map has a leak, so it won't compile. Check everything is where it's supposed to be, and that your ents are inside an area enclosed by your brushes.

Also, wrong forum, this should be in Hammers & Mallets. Perhaps a friendly admin will move it...

The file only appeared as text because you named it whatever.txt or whatever.bat.txt

You need to disable file extension hiding in Windows before you can see and change the .txt to a .bat

You must run the compilers on the SAME DRIVE (like C:) where the game and wads are.

I can do it but it's too much work.

I need to add a button to do it.

yeah, and we all know how superjer feels about WORK.
speaking of work, superjer you should make your own emoticon. or maybe add that to one of the things you can trade for points... a custom emoticon.
