Ok, I tried to make map today, and it was not smooth sailing. The first time, I created a floor with a bsp bursh, and applied a material to it. I added a light, a player start, a sky dome, and a brumak mesh for scale. I did a complete build, and played in the editor. Everything was pretty much fine. Then I went to File -> Save As and tried to save. I entered a name for the file and hit save. Everything seemed to go fine. I did some more editing, and suddenly the editor froze up and was completely unresponsive. So I killed it in task manager, waited a minute or so to make sure it was closed, and then opened it up again. I then went to open the map I was working on, only to discover that it was never actually saved. I then proceeded to basically recreate that map, but this time, when I tried to save, it gave me an error saying something about an "ambiguous name". Now, how exactly "WarTestbed" is an ambiguous name, I don't know. But either way, it still would not actually save a file. I tried several times to save, with many different names, and yet none of it worked. Sometimes it gave me an error and then failed to save. Sometimes it just failed to save but behaved as though everything was normal. So my question is...WTF. Is there some trick to saving a map that I'm unaware of?
