I can't add any lighting to my maps? I've tried evrey possible combination I can think of but it never works? I've tried "Light_enviroment,Light_spot, and just light" all of them don't emite light? Also I mess around with them they still don't work! If you can help me that would be excellent. :(

make sure you don't have any leakes(gaps to the void.) in the map, and make sure there not in the walls.

any error any where
in bsp or in rad or whatever
will cuase hammer to not completely finish compiling the map
so in some cases
the .bsp file won't be created
in terms of a leak
it would be created but lights won't be added
check if you have a BIG room
cuase it could cuase there to be not enough light to light every block and an error to occur
look for
"max_leaf_faces" or something like that
it can also occur if you have a block with a texture that, when painted on the block,
that the size is smaller than 1
can happen with vecter manipulation tool
so do the advanced texture thingy tool

vis and rad aren't being run, and rad is what adds the lighting to the map.

yeah what cart said
use this one prog for compiling
its GUI or guided user interface
not command line like with hammer
Nem's Batch Compiler
http://www.nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?p=2
it might be confusing to use at first
but you'll get the hang of it pretty fast
you can even do "wadinclude" with it

you can do wadinclude with hammer too, if you setup the advance compile commands.
