Im new to Q3A mapping, and i have a map i want to test with bots.
My problem is BSPC (version 0.05) won't actually create the .aas file for the bots, instead it created a log file telling me that it leaked, but theres no leaks in the map. So, is there something i'm doing wrong / A different program to use?

Thanks for the help - Sausage.

hello sausage, i'm learning to map too.

i find that bspc never compiles aas files unless you use the forcesidesvisible option. like so...

bspc -forcesidesvisible -bsp2aas mapname.bsp

hope this helps.

that red's a bit harsh on the eyes.  :-(

i'm using gtkradiant 1.5 which i got from here...
http://www.qeradiant.com/cgi-bin/trac.cgi
...and it came with a version of bspc that has the forcesidevisible option. i'm using the linux version, but i imagine the windows version should have the same features.
