So I am working on a map..and its fairly big.... 7020x7040 (theres a shitload of stuff in it....) and I went to compile and it gave me the error..
"The Command Failed" Windows reported this error:
"The system cannot find the file specified"

any idea on how I can fix this? Been working on this map for about 17 hrs, I'd rather not start over.

heres everything in the compiling window before it stopped...

Might also be smart to give a shot at the Hammer's Error Checker (Alt+P)
