Me and a mate are working on a anticipated map called mp_nuke(more info here)

After few weeks successfully working we got an difficult/nasty error. We can compile the bsp file but when we try to compile the reflections it just crashes out of the blue.

Things i have tried to fix it without:

- Remove all lightning probes and re-add them
- Removed all the lightning probes and then compile
- Copy/paste everything in a new map
- Removed custom textures ( 2 logos 512x512)
- Removed recently build things.
- Removed the scripted doors and objects.

These things had no succes and we need some serious help from IW or the community to let this map not go to waste.

Try taking the mp_nuke.gsc file out of the C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\raw\maps\mp folder and putting it on your desktop. compile the reflections. When the compiler is done compiling reflections then put it back into C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\raw\maps\mp folder then build your fast file.

That works for me. I put in a fluorescent light effect in my map and had the same problem as you.

Recreating the skybox did not do the trick. So there i something else wrong. Anyone got an idea here is the compile log:

If your error occurs during compile reflections, post the error here.

If your map is not compiling (i.e. a bsp is not being created) post the full contents of the compile window by right clicking on the DOS box and selecting all, and then pasting here. The .errlog only shows some errors and sometimes does not include the serious errors that make a compile fail.

Once we have all that info I am sure we can find a solution ;)

sloppy copy/paste, but this should give the idea..
you have a light set as a primary light, while you have the sun set as primary aswell, this causes enough errors for teh compiler to throw a fit..
just copy the coordinates given, press ctrl+g in radiant, paste coordinates, and the view should go to the offending light, select it, press "n" and find some mention of primary lights, untick the box next to it..
that should be it, but I'll look further into it when I get back home :)

I want to thank you for all your help. The problem is solved thanks to Derix on the modbase.be forum. He found some errors in the map involving primary lights like SporadiC said.
