If you've switched to Vluzacn's tools, I think you need to define your wad directories in settings.txt for textlights to work.
Mine looks like this:
#ifdef <hlrad>
  #define -waddir "E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\valve"
  #define -waddir "E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\thecore"
#endif
If it still doesn't work, add your most up-to-date lights.rad to the tools directory containing your compile tools executables.

I don't think you'll need to mess with the settings.txt file. Make sure you have lights.rad file in your tools folder and check your compile log to make sure hlrad actually finds it.

The reason why those blue lights don't emit light is because they're not defined in the lights.rad file for reasons unknown to me. Simply add an entry for it yourself.

Just open it in notepad and follow the formatting of the existing entries to add your own.

The VHLT tools comes with an empty* lights.rad file.
If you have the lights.rad file that comes with Hammer 3.4/5, use that one instead. Otherwise, I think there's also a valve.rad file that contains most, but not all of the Half-Life texlights.

* All texlights have their value set to 255 255 255 0 and are commented out.

WHY YOU WANT ME BSP WHILE YOU CAN'T CRATE ONE !!!!

Are you passing the .map file version of your level to the compile tools? Also make sure you run the tools in the correct order and only once: HLCSG is first, then HLBSP, HLVIS and finally HLRAD.

It's not creating bsp at all...
Posted 1 year ago2016-05-31 22:10:10 UTC Post #330281
There is no "-game" argument in HLRAD.

The "-lights" argument is useless because the default "lights.rad" (in the same folder as HLRAD) is loaded. "-lights" should only be used in the case of a custom shared on multiple maps "lights.rad".

Are your Valve Hammer Editor settings correct ?
Posted 1 year ago2016-06-01 09:37:40 UTC Post #330288
YAY!!!! i fixed it. it's about settings.txt with -waddir parameters. I deleted them and bsp came.

But bsp turned a fullbright map.

A light )
A start point ) and these are in a hollow box.
Some blocks )

I think it's a light problem but how?
