Try to open your map in notepad and save. It is good to make backup before. If we talk about map not bsp.
you can check your map format structure as plain text or share it
This video is closed caption so you can watch in your native language:
Can you upload the map file and post a link?
The link takes me to your setup tut
YES!! it is a video that you can play in your native language as I typed above. The section where the compiling is setup should play automatically.

I find it difficult to converse in a language I am not functional in.
Maybe I misunderstood.
thanks for interest/reply
trying to remember what I was doing that could have triggered this weirdness but it's a little unclear as I didn't realize it wasn't making changes for bit (assumed I messed up in the editor as it isn't my comfort zone etc)
please let me know if more info required
Why Doesn't Someone Write A Tut For Compiling Q2 Maps Out Of
Trenchbroom? I have seen two other threads that fizzled when the user was asking for help to do just that. I am wondering if there is an issue with Trenchbroom that won't allow for it. Heck, if there was one for how to do it with Quake that might suffice. I am hoping someone takes up the challenge. As for the statement "I find it difficult to converse in a language I am not functional in. " I was referring to my inability to understand even basic code speak.
I did it before. It can be done. Just try it out. If I can figure it out anyone can. Sorry I don't have the answers for you but I have a new computer and those files are on another I don't have access to. You can Google for Quake 2 compiling tools and find this:
Write a batch file to compile your map and FFS GO MAP.
and go here for some info: https://discord.gg/Wnqz74z
The map file looks fine. Could you post the entire error message, it might stem from one of TB's other configuration files.
I've got it
// entity 25
"origin" "744 136 200"
Last entity at file has misprinted backslash - escape character. Just remove it using notepad.
Appreciate it. Thank You. Too much for me though. I am now using Quark's internal compiling. It is no more time consuming then using the compiling GUI. So I build in Trenchbroom and compile in Quark, my problem is solved.
(re #2918 AND #2920, clearly)
So is this \ a byproduct of something I did in the editor or just my fat fingers

Seems like you pressed it in pair with Enter
TB should warn about this though.
You have to validate string on focus lost at least. BTW only useful escaped symbol for entity fields is "\n"

Hiding Vertices/edges/faces Behind Brushes?
Is there a way to do this, or in the works? The screen can be a real mess when working with a lot of grouped brushes.
I Don‘t Understand What You Mean
Please explain in more detail.
