I get flickering in the map all the time.

I have been making a simple map which consist of simply this room: I have 4 lights but they only work when you are looking at them for some reason, when you dont look at any then its off. Im wondering how to fix this problem, I have no errors in my map, the lights have a color of light yellow, and are pointed towards a target in the center of the map, the wall texture is the advisor barn roof texture, if you type in barn you should be able to see what I mean.

    You have model textures on your worldbrushes. Use other textures and that will be fixed. Just look at the texture names. model textures have usually the word "model" in their pathnames. like "models/nature/rocks03

    Yes, this is true and also, if the problem still persists, you can also try using sprites to make some actual lighting effect, following this link: http://www.fpsbanana.com/tuts/6442

    What kind of light do you have light_spot , light_dynamic light? if you have light dynamic use a light spot and if your using just the light entity it can't have a pitchyawroll for it just place it in the map with out it pointing in the middle of the map

    It's definitely a problem with model textures on world geometry. Believe me ;)
