Hit a wall a while back with d40 and i just can't get through this compiling error I'm getting, this happens to any level that uses the sky. I have tried replacing the bsps and editing them in sapien and kornman. I can open the scenario in sapien and have tried changing things like the sky for the scenario and background sounds for the bsp but still no luck. here is the log hope you guys can help. Note i have also tried changin the stringlist to the right size but a whole load of different errors came up.

Here is the error that comes up with the correct size of the string

You know it's funny, back in the day for Halo PC this BSP would always cause an exception and I never knew why.

I'll look into it.

It's not the BSP, your tags are busted. EAX errors seem to be when tool completely craps itself and can't figure out what the hell went wrong. The HUD error is most likely unrelated, don't go chasing that yet.

What I would do is save a new copy of your scenario and start removing things chunk by chunk until you find what was causing the issue. If you can't build a map with only the d40_terrain BSP, recursively extract it with Refinery and use overwrite to be sure you have a good tag. Don't overwrite all the tags, just the recursive d40_terrain BSP.

I'll be happy to continue helping, but the d40 terrain by itself isn't causing an issue

ok awesome dude, good to know its not the terrain. I'll start on stripping it although its pretty bare already, using a test scenario with nothing but the bsp assets and the sky. Going to start replacing the sound tags now

EDIT: Replaced the tags that the scenario was using including bsp, sky and other stuff and still no dice

Re-extract the BSP and scenario. Fresh from a new .map file

The SKY doesn't matter because the BSP doesn't have any +sky faces and doesn't display a sky. Still reference one, but it won't display.

And if that doesn't work, you did screw up something in the HUD. Replace whatever you may have edited.

If you don't already know, the game grabs a few tags and all it's dependencies. The two you're concerned about will be globals\globals.globals , and your scenario tag. Everything that the map tries to build itself with is inside one of those two tags or somewhere down the tagpath.

If it was a globals issue would it affect compiling on all levels since I been able to compile maps since

Yeah it would. Still no luck with this? Can't imagine what would cause the issue. You're extracting from a stock map right? And you can compile other levels without issue?

Did you use hek+, or refinery?
