Hi all, long time no type. I've been sucessfully mapping my latest effort in CODRAD and have had very few problems except now. All of a sudden and seemingly for no reason, the lighting aspect of the compiler is crashing every time at a random stage. Although I don't think this has anything to do with it I am using scorpio's codpiler. I've tried debugging my map (by deleting recently added brushes and patches, even as far back as 1-2 weeks) but the error still occurs. In fact, I don't think it has anything to do with my map - it just seems like flare has suddenly stopped working. I say that because I deleted a huge chunk of my map (effectively going back to when the compiler had no problems) and still it crashes. I have no idea what is causing this error and will continue to try to debug my map to see if it is related to that, but I just wondered if anyone else knew what might be causing this. Specs are Winxp Pro, Athlon XP 2000, 512 DDR although I doubt it's a system error as it was working fine for weeks. I'll check back here next week, if I can (not on the net at home for a while). Thanks in advance for any help I may get. Just remember that it's only the final lighting section that is causing flare to crash. Cya about.
