on a map that actually works.
failed to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8::LockVertexBuffer
which means???...i play tested it before and it worked perfectly fine no slow down no leaks no errors no problems no nothing. but now all i added was a block bullets. and some more brushes which i duplicated a whole bunch of times to make a big sign. anyone know what the problem is? is it just my internet or...i didnt even touch the vertex manipulator tool making this map nothing is involved with carve clipping or vertex stuff.

    Bruce, your using an incorrect water material, you need to use one that isn't labeled underwater, as an underwater material wont reference in an underwater/bottom material. Try and use the material that is the surface of the water

    If I use the surface texture then I get a fishbowl effect. Using the underwater texture on the inside of my 3D sky box makes it look like the water goes on forever.

    Umm you really should keep your map simple. Don't do what I did with AODIsland. For my first map it's a huge undertaking. If the prop limit is an issue, then you're using way too many props anyways. Hammers prop limit I think is just over 1K, that should be more than enough for any mapper.

    See this is what I'm talking about. If I use the surface texture underwater looks terrible. I know this doesn't happen in pvk_Island.
