Description
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Glados wants you dead.
What could you do?

Dear test subjects, today is your big day!
Robot love is not wrong! Can you and your partner prove this to GLaDOS?
Today you should grab your favorite co-op partner and explore the depths of the aperture science computer aided valentine's track!
In this very big co-op map (estimated playtime 1.5-2 hours) you can expect to find a whole lot of custom things and a total of 5 secrets that unlock a final secret room!

This map is brought you by: Josepezdj; Lpfreaky90; Mevious; Sicklebrick and Zivi7

Notes:
* The filesize of this map is huge, about 90 MB, due to all custom stuff. Please have some patience while downloading and loading the map. It's best to let Steam fully download the map for both players before you try to connect.
* This map is big and long, make sure to have some time on your hands. Estimated playtime 1-2 hours
* The custom fizzlers and skybox look best on high graphic settings. If your computer can't handle them, at least try to increase the shader quality.
* The GLaDOS dialogue is pieced together from the English dialogue from the official game. We hope it also makes sense in other languages.
* If you're interested in technical details of the map, talk to us on this thread[forums.thinkingwithportals.com] on thinkingwithportals.com.
* To keep the difficulty level at a level that everyone could enjoy, we decided to separate some tough chambers from the main course. For a real challenge, check out "Aperture Valentine - The Advanced Chambers" By Josepezdj!

FAQ:
Q: I want to play this map, but I've got no one to play it with!
A: It's possible to play the map split-screen if you can't find anyone. To do this;
- Subscribe to the map, and let Steam download it.
- Search your maps folder (e.g., C:\Steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\portal2\maps) for a file called mp_coop_v13.bsp. If you find multiple, use the newest one.
- Copy mp_coop_v13.bsp out of the numbered folder into the main maps directory (e.g., C:\Steam\steamapps\common\portal 2\portal2\maps)
- Start up Portal 2
- Find a button that you can easily use to switch players (I use z)
- Type in the console: BindToggle z in_forceuser and press enter. Obviously the z could be changed in the bind command if you want to use other keys.
- Then type in the console ss_map mp_coop_v13.bsp
- Once the map is loaded; type in the console sv_cheats 1
- Now you're good to go; pressing z will let you change which player you are controlling.

lol, this map was kind of funny, and still a little difficult, my aunt would LOVE all the hearts (she loves hearts :p). I can tell a lot of work went into this, and it seems to be worth it, Good Job. 8.5/10

I finally played this beast, and it took me over a year to find a competent partner. I've been subscribed to this map for that long. :P

My friend and I are currently stuck in the room where one of us has an orange beam, and the other has a blue. We can't seem to find any means of getting passed it, other than exploiting one glitch we came across. Any help would much be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
