ORIGINAL TITLE: "file read failure"
There is a problem reading the file. The possible causes and possible solutions vary so much I cannot list them ALL here.
For a HL/mod game a few solutions are:
Corrupt BSP, needs replacing
Corrupt MOD or HL program needs replacing - a virus?
Bad Hard drive sector that is not reading well or at all
Another program is interfering with the game program
Many others are possible.
This error also occurs when you exceed the maxiumum texture limit. The old tools have a 2mb limit and Zoners have a 4mb limit. You can extend this limit by adding '-texdata #' as a parameter to all 4 compile tools, with # being a size in kb. A good setting is 40000
