I have made a little tropocal pool map and I have already .bsp'd it. the only problem is the thing lights up like the sun is going to ram into the earth any second. the lights are about the brightness if you stared into the sun for crying out loud! Does anybody know how to fix this? Is there not enough lights?

Your map either a) isn't large enough (if the map isn't large enough, it gets the FULLBRIGHT level you're describing) or b) you performed the wrong type of compile (BSP ExtraVIS if it's done, no more, you're ready to release it; BSP FastVIS if you just want to check it out but not have the compile take 8 million years).

chances are your map is too big for the lightmap
try this in the worldspawn

key:gridsize
value: 256 256 256 (powers of 2)

I even tried 1024 1024 1024 but no go

also try q3map2, there is a thread in here about it.

I have the same problem; you'll know for sure if this is your problem by looking in the console of radiant after the compile or the junk.txt file; the error is obvious

that solution may have fixed the lights but i cant finish the bsp now unfortunately. It gives this error:

can't find image for shader noshader
Unspecified Error- Please contact john or rick

this is a real problem i cant even bsp it now ...

Strange... I've never heard of a problem like that before...

"can't find image for shader noshader
Unspecified Error- Please contact john or rick "

oh don't worry about this it doesn't mean anything. it will show up on every compile. can't remember the story behind it but it won't cause any problems.

it has to be something else. post the junk.txt or what is printed in the radiant console after a compile attempt

If you've gotten the "contact john or rick" error, something has SERIOUSLY gone awry. I can't help you with fixing that one, but I would probably try and get on the Radiant website and ask for help there.
