Author Topic: Help with installing a Portal map  (Read 1695 times)

I need help with installing Portal maps. I tries to install the map "Portal Playground v1". Google it if you're unfamilar with this map. The .zip contained 3 files, a .bsp, a .bns, and a .tga. Upon opening the .tga, QuickTime poped up showing that the .tga must have been the icon in the bonus map section. I put everything in the C:Program Files/Steam/bobbysq(friend me!)/portal/portal/maps directory and it half worked. The map shows up, but can't be opened unless through the console. Is this my problem, or is it the mapper's?

I don't think Portal is as mod-friendly as some of the other Source games (eg: CSS, TF2, L4D). From my experience, opening it from the console is the only way to go. It's more Valve's problem than yours or the mapper's.
