It doesn't find the .wad files.
I followed all the instructions in the webbed hreads on how to set up Hammer. Then I ran Hammer and built a hollow box with a light and an info_player_start. Then when I tried compiling it gave the compile process window gave this error: "The command failed. Windows reported the error:
"The system cannot find the file specified.""
So then I scrolled up and saw this:
Command line: C:\NSMAPP~1\Hammer\tools\hlrad.exe "c:\ns mapping\hammer\maps\sappypap"
>> There was a problem compiling the map.
>> Check the file c:\ns mapping\hammer\maps\sappypap.log for the cause.
So I looked in the .log file and found this:
Error: Could not open wad file \steam\steamapps\firstname.lastname@example.org\half-life\nsp\ns.wad
Error: Could not find WAD file
Description: The compile tools could not locate a wad file that the map was referencing.
Howto Fix: Make sure the wad's listed in the level editor actually all exist
Error: Could not open wad file \steam\steamapps\email@example.com\half-life\nsp\ns2.wad
So why is it doing this?
