Restore Custom Test Chambers

I just upgraded my PC and reinstalled Portal 2. I used Gamesave Manager to restore my custom maps, however they aren't showing up in the game. I have tried to manually move, what I assume are the map files, but nothing seems to be working.

Can anyone help me get my maps back?

Um do you still have to original portal 2 folder somewhere?

No, I have reinstalled Windows. I assumed the Gamesave Manager would correctly backup the maps. There are a bunch of files in a "My Maps" directory, but when the software restores them to where they were, they don't show up in Portal 2. :/

I also thought that Steam Sync would put the maps back, and it does seem to have synced some files, but still, no love in game.

Um what I found when I had to copy my maps from 1 computer to another was there was 2 folders I had to copy files from and the were puzzlemaker under maps and then puzzles in the portal 2 folder so if you can find these folders and try and recognize what the files look like that might help, and I do believe that steam cloud only save single player saves.

I have a similar problem, I made my custom maps on another computer, I copied the map .bsp files to the same folder I got them from, and when I try to access them on the map maker, they simply don't show up. Can I get some help?

The .bsp files aren't really important, you need to backup the .p2c files for the Puzzlemaker to load your custom maps. If you don't have them you'll basically have to recreate the maps.

Had this same issue, and the discussion here gave me some clues. The folder you want is this:

(your steam library folder)\steamapps\common\Portal 2\portal2\puzzles\(your Steam ID #)

Just copy that whole thing from the old PC/drive/whatever to the new one.
