Thread: Weird texture problem

  1. #1

    Default Weird texture problem

    I don't know what's going on with my map. I was working fine but now I got this missing texture square. The brush is still there, but the texture is missing in that spot. I dind't even was working in that spot of the map. Any ideas?

    There may be something in the compile log about it.

    Have you tried remaking it? Is it structural and does it need to be?

    Fixed. I've just deleted the brush and remade it.

    Why when I test the map localy my fps run good but when I test it online with some friends fps drops? The map is still beta, so I use fast vis and light. I didn't use any hint brush nor area portals (I'm not goot at all with that). And in some places you can fall out of the map, and there are some building missing at the edge of the map. I don't know if it has something to do with the fps.

    Well I'm not a mapper, but the brush and area portals control how the game is rendering the objects. Let me try and explain it a bit differently...
    Let's assume you had a wallhack. If you go into a map with no hint brush, then you can basically see from 1 end of the map to the other without any problems (with the wallhack)... If you play the same map, only you add hint brushes and other vis/ area portals, then it will block the rendering of the wallhack. Now this seems like a great idea, but you have a limit of how many hint brush you use because it requires a lot more calculations on the serverside. As long as you use it accordingly you can get a map that is nice to play on without spiking your fps. Maybe smithy can explain it better because I'm really not a mapper, but I guess you want to use hint brush an area portal to control the rendering on the map. Otherwise everything gets rendered and it will cause lower FPS. Especially if you have more players.

    I'll try some tutorials I've found and see if it improves the fps.

    Now, looking into the compiler log I see this. Any ideas what is going on? I tried serching the brushes but nothing is shown.

    Now I have this weird random brush showing in game. In the editor there's nothing draw there, It's just appeared. I did nothing in that specific spot. I don't know what is going on with my map lately

    I delete everything around that spot and rebuild, just to try, and it's still there.
