in "Host_Error: Couldn't get DLL API from !" Post #346741
I believe i have found the solution! I suddenly had a realisation, it may not be working because I'm on macOS [don't hate me, can't afford a PC rn :')] so i looked up "half-life mods mac" and boom, all you need to do it point the mod's liblist.gam file to the macOS .dlls. Some mods have this by default which is why I was confused as why some were working and some weren't :0

Hey all, not a question about my own mod but about someone else's, or rather many someone else's...'s. Hope this isn't against the thread rules or anything.

A lot of HL1 mods I have been installing recently can't load into a map at all. The first attempt at loading fails and gives me this error in the console:

"Host_Error: Couldn't get DLL API from !"

And if I try a second time the game crashes.

Anyone have any fixes? I've tried searching on Google but have found nothing that works. Before you ask, yes I have tried verifying the game files on Steam and unfortunately, nothing. I also tried replacing the mod's .dll files with the ones from the default "valve" folder but still nothing.

in Illegal brushes? Post #339565
Okay so now I type in the brush number and it brings me to a fairly big ceiling brush. Any explanation to why this didn't happen before?

(BTW yes I deleted it and now the map works, thanks people)

in Illegal brushes? Post #339558
I'm getting this error when I try to compile my map. When I go to the brush numbers stated it takes me to a completely empty part of the map. Solutions please?

I deleted that entity but now it's saying one of my multi_managers causes a leak. When I go to the coordinates mentioned in the compile log I end up somewhere completely different.

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

And before you ask, I have tried both pointfiles. They led to a leak, I fixed it, got the exact same error.

I use paint.net for .tga's. How do I change the encoding or is it automatically chosen when I save as .tga?

in Custom skybox not working? Post #336884
So I need to make a custom skybox for a mod I'm working on. Apparently you're supposed to use something called Terragen but it's way too complicated for me and the tutorials I read were for a much older version so they were no help. So I went the silly route and pasted the textures I wanted for the sky into MS Paint and saved them in HL/valve/gfx as 256x256 bitmaps and then saved them again as .tga files (before anyone asks, yes I did all the required angles: bk, rt, fr, etc.). Then I went to hammer and made a cube, textured it with "sky", hollowed it and created a platform. Then I went into map properties and put "ice" (the prefix for all my textures) in the sky section. But when I load the map in HL, the sky is one of the desert ones. Could somebody please tell what I'm missing/doing wrong?

I'm testing my map and I spawn correctly when I load the map from the console, but when I enter it through the previous map, I get instantly stuck in the ground. Anyone have an answer? I can't find any with google searches.

probably should not be deleted. Some complex rotating objects entities need
their origins outside the map. To deal with these, just enclose the origin

I looked all around my map (it's not that big) both in HL and in Hammer itself but there are no leaks at all. I've also checked for entities in the void but there are none and I haven't enclosed the map using a brush entity. Help would be appreciated.
