Do you see any errors when you compile?
Do you have leaks in your map?

Oh yeah, don't forget to compile light stage? (Choose FullVIS(extra) in BSP menu)

If you r using GTKR then YES. If you have JK2R you can just see them in the DOS promt when it compiles.
It should say:


OR can display some other errors if any.

It leaked plus does this mean anything?

Exceeded MAX_MAP_LIGHTGRID_ARRAY (12468168 >= 1048576)
I added 0 lighting

Fix the leak. It's usually a 'hole' in your map which leads to the void (area outside). Obviously there shouldn't be any holes.

As for max grid array, you might wanna try to increase light grid size. Read this thread.

However, I think it might not help you because your grid array is twelve times bigger than the maximum. LOL. What kind of map is this anyaway? A huuuge box with zillion light entities? Making map smaller may be the only solution.

you should be able to find the answer to that question here --

It's in a sticky at the top of the forum.

lol thx hopefuly i get this over with soon, I was confused cause I have no light entitys, I checked there is no void.I am goin to try those things hopefuly I won;t have to make my map smaller cause i was planing to make mos eisley or half of it so i think i will have to make 2 hangers a bar and a few houses I think,
