I've recently installed Hammer++ and set it up for Half-Life 2, But every time i compile the map, the bsp file doesn't show up and the game doesn't run. I've tried changing all of the directories to the Half-Life 2 files instead of the Source SDK 2013 Singeplayer ones and reinstalling Hammer++, but nothing.

I've looked online about the 'GameData' key, and tried some solutions but none of them worked.

I doubt that has anything to do with BSP files not being created. Looking at the source code that error only relates to the use of func_instance entities and is not a fatal error.

Is the compile log you provided the entire log? Can you show your Hammer configuration (build programs and all that) and the compile settings?

I have sent the whole compile log.

Here is my Hammer++ configuration:

You didn't show your compile settings.

Also, can you provide the vmf file you're trying to compile?

I'm not sure where i can find the compile settings.

As for the vmf file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qkGUmlKR188nfP_GPjtoTTv1-3DmceuU/view?usp=drive_link

Your map has a leak, but due to how the compiler works it's not reporting this.

Your map needs at least one solid brush not tied to any entities to properly compile. You tied all sky brushes to func_water_analog which causes the compiler to skip trying to build brushes, so it also skips over the usual leak detection.

Sky brushes must never be tied to an entity. Brushes used to seal the map must never be tied to an entity either. Once you've changed the sky brushes back to regular brushes it should compile properly.

It finally compiled properly! Thank you so much!
