I think sparcdr is correct. I get the same problem when I compile too. What I do to fix this is compile the ass with a separate compile script. Its seems to fix it. It may be a combination of a memory leak, with a faulty map file, and who knows what. It only happens when I try to compile NNC. If I compile any of the old maps I dont get the error.

Don't glare at me if I sound stupid since I don't map, but as I remember there's a limitation of the format for shapes, which have to be either convex or concave, not both. Is this fault possibly related to such a limitation?

everything has limitations. Macho, you might beable to fix this problem by adding more bot_clip and reducing the areas that the bspc has to calculate. Remember to make solid bot_clip brushes covering everywhere that you dont want bots to go, and where they cant possibly go.

how so? if they are getting stuck on the door frame just add more bot_clip so that all they see is a hole in the bot clip. if they are getting stuck on the actual door, try making the door open ion the other direction: if the door opens in a clockwise direction, make it open in the counter-clockwise direction. I had to do this on Noanmecity with the church back door, the bots would open the door then turn right to run down the street... they would just keep running into the door.

also, you may be able to get them to be smart by adding the ai nodes.

Thanks for including the .map file. Easier to just compile that than to fiddle with making a working pk3. You say this is an older project? Ok good. I was about to give you some grief for repeating many of the same mistakes as last time. :P I'll have to cut you some slack. Anyway, you certainly have an imagination. It'll be nice to see a project that puts all of your experience into something more refined someday. Keep going! 8)

Probably an incorrect path in your shader.
Sorry I haven't had time to look at this latest project from you. I hope to find time tomorrow evening. :)

I like this one the best so far. In fact, I think it might be good enough to release if you wanted to spend a little more effort on it. If I can find time, I'd be happy to help with some of the things that should really be fixed. I like it. 8)

I'll try to help if I can. Unfortunately, it's best to understand how optimization works before you begin a level so that you have a "hint friendly" layout to work with right from the start. Trying to fix it later is a real pain sometimes. But all new mappers go through this & so did I. :wink:
