Hi i am a beginner at half life modeling and Jack , so i tried to compile a map however Jack won't start half life at all . Notice even under Worldcraft half life launches but it get stuck at loading screen so what's the problem

Thank you

If i want to play the game no problem , but when i try and run the map through JACK it doesn't load half life at all . As i said for Worldcraft valve it does lunch Half life but i am stuck at an endless loading screen

Sounds like a problem with your map, check your compile log for error messages and report any here so we can help you further.

D:\Sierra\Half-Life\gearbox\maps\start
Your map appears to be saving in the gearbox directory. Are you mapping for Opposing Force?
D:\Sierra\Half-Life\hl.exe
If so, you will need to launch Opposing Force to play it. It seems your setup is incorrectly launching Half-Life. It won't be able to find the map in the gearbox directory.

No that's not the issue i tried to save the map in gearbox/maps because i was saving it in a separate folder but nothing changed
Posted 2 weeks ago2019-05-09 12:28:43 UTC Post #342592
So, just to confirm, your compiled map file (start.bsp?) is present in the D:\Sierra\Half-Life\valve\maps directory? That's where hl.exe will be checking for it.

If so, does the game also freeze if you fire up Half-Life as normal and try to run "map start" via the console?

i don't know how to run a map like that do you write the name of the map and then start

YESSS you are one mf genius it does work ! so what's the problem
Posted 2 weeks ago2019-05-09 20:00:04 UTC Post #342597
Might be an issue with your JACK setup? Personally I've never run the game through the compiler. I always just compile and then run the map via the console in-game. The command is "map mapname" but I assume you've already figured that out. :D
