i know this is very very very noob but what i was wondering is after we finish a map and want to test it(i know press F9 go into game and everything) where do i find it so i can test it? i found it as a map on the create a server but whenever i hit start for that it just goes back to main menu.
You can take the .bsp file for your map and put it in your Counter Strike Source folder. (or whatever game). By doing this, it acts as one of the maps in the game and you can easily select in the "Select Map menu".
The .bsp for your map is in your sourcesdk_content folder under the name of the game you are making it for.
