Re: [SP] Positive Discouragement - Chamber 03

That was great - such a cool and unique solution. I can see how Josepezdj got stuck - I did also . . and likewise it suddenly dawned on me that there just "might be something" in the little alcove next to the exit . Very nice minimalistic map !! Sort of like a "devious Mevious" m...

Re: DESPERATE for Workaround to the 1 SAVE ONLY Problem

Geniuses . . . sheer GENIUSES ! ! Thanks so much. I am beside myself . . ================================================================== ADDENDUM: actually it is harder than I thought, to do this because none of my Maps are "Named" by their names in the Workshop folder. For example, I a...

DESPERATE for Workaround to the 1 SAVE ONLY Problem

This post only refers to Community Maps . Unfortunately, unlike bsp files that allow unlimited Saves . . . the Community maps only allow a single SAVE. ACTUALLY the single Save vanishes when you start a new map - so you really cannot even save a single snapshot of "where you were". This is...

Re: [PTI] Brainteaser v1.0

This was quite a challenge. It took a while before I realized how to hit that catcher high up on the wall. But it took me quite a bit more time before I realized how to hit that laser catcher and then get out of that room and back to the final room. Unlike Brainteaser 2, this one requires no use of ...

Re: [PTI] Brainteaser v2.0

The cube jump is the coolest thing I ever saw. Too bad it is IMPOSSIBLE to do. I tried so many times and landed squarely on the cube - however I am getting no "lift" from the floating upward cube and cannot get over the lip on the far side.

Re: [PTI] Just think and do

The area that is surrounded with kill beams seems to be a red herring. There is no buttons or anything there (I no-clipped to see). I spent about 15 minutes trying to hit the sensor using the non-obvious portable surface and had to use that insane tiny tolerance. I did not end up needing the lower c...

Re: NEED HELP with a Map with no Video Solution

Thanks a heap. The reason I did not post to the previous entry was that I ran a Search for Downloads . . . and the TWP search engine only seems to work sporadically. I noticed that it works best with single-word named maps but with multiple-word names it does not work most of the time. But I will co...

NEED HELP with a Map with no Video Solution

I am stuck on a map called "Just Think and Do" by KenShi0771 (see http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=123430206 ). He is also the Author of the highly rated BrainTeaser v1.0 (see the PTI board) which which is a FANTASTIC puzzle !! Really makes you think long and hard (see...

Re: [SP] Dilapidation: Part 6

I liked this map. Again your environments and layout was excellent. The difficulty was not much - but . . well I always prefer "hard" but not everyone makes hard maps and that is just a fact. But actually the puzzle did stump me for a while as I tried to solve it the wrong way. The Boss Ba...

Re: Recommendation: "The Great Glass Elevator"

Hope you give it a try. And - if you have time for a slightly wilder map by the same guy, you may want to try "Hard Eight" at http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=75235455 There are a few gems hidden in the thousands of Community maps - LOL. But still, I haven't found any ...

Re: How to Load Previous Maps ?

Yes - I am updating my post in response to your post below . . . I think all is working normally now - but "normal" includes NO "Save Game" option for Community, queued maps. And of course - no "Load Game" option either. So all of this is a combination of my own stupidi...

Recommendation: "The Great Glass Elevator"

I did not see "The Great Glass Elevator" (by Bad Horse) posted to TWP, and did a Search but did not find it. Then again the TWP search function does not work well. So I want to recommend it. I just happened upon it while perusing the Community offerings on Steam, and it was a blast. Medium...

Re: How to Load Previous Maps ?

Thanks for the offer. I cleaned out the Save folder except for the folder that Steam created for my Saves, which is: 76561198041006012 Then I did a couple of Quick Saves (F6) ans also a couple of manual Saves (Escape / Save Game . .). The result is this: 1.jpg I did notice 3 files are created during...

I thought this was the Portal 2 forum ?
Oh well, I think I will have to try and reinstall Steam / Portal 2 from scratch.

Re: How to Load Previous Maps ?

Nope - not working. What is happening ?? The F6 Quick Save and the F7 load work fine . . . but when I select "Save Game" I always see this: 1.jpg So I go ahead and Save the game, and then when I try to Load the Game I see this: 2.jpg If I use F7 to load the game, then walk around to a diff...
