I dont want to waist your time, I dont know to much about this. But I would think that one of the files here is missing or in another folder (x86)\steam\steamapps\mike5674\garrysmod\garrysmod\maps\Castle.bsp" most likley castle.bsp line 18-19, 31-32 I hope this was of use to you

umm, the thing is, there is no .bsp file. my friend asked me if i had GMod set up with hammer, and he gave me a .vmf

soooo i think its because its searching for a non-existant file?

ok, it sounds then, like the compiler is looking for the original bsp file. which is still on your friends comp. there must be a way around that. but I do not know it. have you tried to run the compiler with the dont run game option checked? if not try that and if that works it may be posible to load the map from within the game through the console. I have herd of people doing this to avoid some issues. I am not familier with how to do that though. but to get to the console run the game normaly and at the opining menu press the console key, that is the key to the left of the #1 button on the keyboard.

i have already tried running without launching. and i am not sure if my friend has the BSP because he was getting the exact same error as me.

can you edit the map
The Inquisitor Jun 26, 2013 @ 7:43pm 
if you can save it under another name and it should create a new bsp.

Could not start the empty shader (shaderapiempty.dll)!

is your mapsrc folder is set on that folder ( C:\Users\Main\Downloads\ ) ? because the bsp is created into that folder before to be copied into garrysmod/maps/ at the end of the compile.
