HL-TFC in Worldcraft

I've been messing around with Worldcraft 2.0 which came with  Half-Life, I've been making maps for HL. But then TFC came out, so I got the Worldcraft file which was needed to make TFC levels, but everytime when I place the info_tfgoal entity onto the map, an error comes up and I had to shut Worldcraft without being able to save my map...
What's wrong with this 'info_tfgoal' thing?
And also, in the 3D map view window, I can't see the map properly, it just goes all weird, what's wrong with this Worldcraft?
I hope someone can help me with these questions.

well i dont know about the entity you are talking about and why it errors but i do know that your desktop resolution has to be set to 16or 32 bit in order to see inside the map properly

I don't think that helped me a lot, because my desktop resolution 'WAS' set to 16-bit.

There have been a whole lot of changes in tfc .fgd's
maybe that is the reason it doesn't work.
There is also a new WC version out.
You will HAVE TO HAVE the latest .fgd's because some properties of some entities were changed or removed altogether.

For ALL your level building needs go to The HLEditingResourceCenter at:

I don't know the error you got and therefore can only guess what is wrong, i doubt it you can't find the answer at above site.
Alternatively you could go to the tfc editing NG
There is a link at the HLERC (left side frame)
Loads of levelbuilders there with the most awesome knowledge of WC

While you are at the ERC, check out the TFC entity descriptions i made for them :)

Good Luck

Thanks for the answer, Uilleann(Sharky), I didn't found out what was wrong with it, but I downloaded WC V2.1 and it worked OK, so I think it was something todo with the version of WC.

Just what i thought, WC 2 and tfc didn't mix very well..
Glad you got it going
