Map Compilation Error

Post by deamonpog » 2013-04-12, 08:22

I was trying my first map creation. when i compile the map, it gives an error saying
Map compilation error: 'CaBSP.exe' File Not Found.
Why is this?

It worked fine after setting the configuration settings manually for the CaWE. I had to set the absolute paths. Relative paths didn't work even though I am using the latest source code.

Hi deamonpog,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

It's good to hear that you found a solution for this problem already.

It is in fact possible that the relative default paths don't work if you've compiled yourself from source. For example, a simple "CaBSP.exe" setting (with no real path component) assumes that CaBSP.exe is in the working directory (the top-level Cafu directory). However, when compiled from source, it is rather in a subdirectory like build\win32\vc10\x86\release\CaBSP\CaBSP.exe, so your approach to set the proper (absolute) paths is the correct solution. :up:
Best regards,
Carsten

That's right, but currently I've not enough spare time to do this immediately myself, so that best that I can come up with at this time is: http://trac.cafu.de/ticket/132
