Hammer Mapping — Page [1]

I have tried to make a little map using your cool tutorial at your website, but it gives me a
"hlcsg: Error: Parsing Entity 0, expected '{' got 'Without`"


What to do with that?

from a short search in the interwebs, I found this
Resizing a decal by its corner handles moves the centre, and you can make the centre think the decal is negative size - which crashes WC.

Copy and paste messes up texture orientation (texture lock was on)

Having an old openGl32.dll in the worldcraft directory did bad things - but thats expected, just warning others of a possible solution.

not sure if it's your problem though, could you post the whole log?

Hmm... strangely enough your file catpee.bat is called catpee.bat.txt
I dont think that it has anything to do with this error, but how are you running the batched file?? And unfortunately i have no idea what to do.

So you should return later in the day and see if killer-duck helps..

There's an error in the actual map-file somehow, what exactly are you doing? Following the jer's tutorial to the letter means no problems but somehow you are giving the wrong type of file to hlcsg.

I think there's something wrong with the bat-file. Can you post the content of your bat-file?

The .bat file says catpee.bat.txt in it where it should say


You are drag-and-dropping catpee.bat.txt on hlcsg.exe which is not the correct way to run it.

Also it looks like you pasted "Without Steam" in the .bat file which is also wrong.
