How is she when she doesn't surf?

I got a new PC lately so i'm having trouble setting everything back up again for modding. But now i've got to the lightmapping stage, and tool gives me this:


01.03.13 00:25:58 tool pc 01.00.00.0609 ----------------------------------------------
01.03.13 00:25:58 reference function: _write_to_error_file

01.03.13 00:25:58 Couldn't read map file './toolbeta.map'
01.03.13 00:25:58 i'm going to render debug lightmaps for[redacted] of [redacted]\[redacted]\[redacted], and i'll stop when red+blue+green = 0.100000.
Hit control-c now if this isn't right.

01.03.13 00:33:02 0.106353
01.03.13 00:33:27 0.100952

And then does nothing. No bitmaps created, no prompt that the lightmaps are finished. Same goes for running lightmaps in sapien; it gets to the end, i type the radiosity_save command, and the program will freeze. I've tried running as administrator, doesn't help.

That took a long time for 0.9. Is this from your debug.txt?

Yes. I did admittedly hibernate my computer through 8 of those hours, but 1:30 hours seems a bit much still.

In my own experience, having more lights means lightmaps take longer rendering
While having more geometry means lightmaps take longer saving

If your map is massive, I'd say that's the reason for the delay. But I might be wrong.

Running lightmaps on my computer on lowest settings takes 3 full days. I do not have a super computer but it's not bad either, has a decent graphic card and runs Halo at 30FPS no problem.
