definitely was big but nice puzzle
mood3rd 2016년 7월 11일 오후 3시 56분 
path to portal 2 maps on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit pc.
start / computer / C drive (or which ever one your operating system is on) /program files (x86) / steam / steam apps / common / portal 2 / portal 2 / puzzles / (now you see a folder with a long number) inside is your maps & screenshots of each map.
maps all end in p2c
you will recognise the screenshot's ending in jpg
the screenshot number will match the map number, it is associated with.
just backing up your maps with screenshots is enough.
steam will put everything else back for you.
on a new pc.
install steam / install portal 2.
with both closed, use path to find puzzles & delete what is inside & copy paste your backup, to that location.
it worked for me, a few times :)
ps. at the earlier stage, when you opened common.
you can see other games.
if you have workshop maps in any of the other games.
you can enter them from here.
eg "Thinking with time machine" ?
hope this helps

Yes I did that already. I copied the complete portal 2 directory to an external HD. So far I didn´t need to make a new win installation and re-transfer the portal backup. But if there is another save location outside the portal directory for the maps, I would appreciate a tip. Thanks.

Thankyou for the offer.
I will keep it in mind, if I do decide to use hammer.
another tip is to backup your maps, to an external drive.
if you don't already ?
I can explain how, if you want ?
as loads of people have lost theirs.

Thanks mood. I like to create architecture in my maps, I have some more of this kind.
Also thanks for your tips regarding the item limitation, I knew that guide but it wasn´t in my bookmarks for portal guides, so I just added it.
In my newer maps I sometimes used hammer for the design, textures and some extra effects. It has much more capacities for items. It´s not as easy as the Portal Editor, but I think the basic functions like texturing and some other are not so hard to learn. There are a lot of good tutorials on youtube. You can export your PeTi created maps to hammer and modify them there.
If you want to learn more about it, let me know and I´ll gladly help you. I have some resources for good hammer tutorials.

ps. after reading your 1st comment,
about this map previously having more puzzle elements planned.
but due to the item limit. you had to leave them out.
I thought you might be interested in this:
a good guide for the Items limit:
further down in the guide, it mentions how many entities each item has.
beware of antlines. as long ones use a vast amount.
I have found the information extremely helpfull.

good map
I though the way to get the reflector, in the 1st chamber was great.
I had a little trouble aligning the reflector in the 2nd chamber.
(no big problem. just a bit awkward)
but still a good chamber.
the conversion gel had me looking everywhere for a laser catcher or relay.
when eliminating where I could see.
their was only 1 place it could be :)
(their was a antline clue, from the laser field)
good map design.
from functionality to the way it looked :)
good fun

That was fun. Thanks.

The jumps are a little scary but it seems to work :) The first floor puzzle is good. Slighty on the death map side. The other parts are ok... Easy compared to some of your other chambers :)

Nice work with bridge in the initial chamber; really huge map ; thumbs up!
ZAEROS 2014년 10월 21일 오전 5시 29분 
Easiest Zoraya so far but still lots of fun, Thank you.
Chelliste 2014년 10월 20일 오후 5시 23분 
A bundle o' fun. Not as fiendishly devious as some of your other maps, but even so nothing is solved in a "beginner" sort of way. Always something a little tricky about it. Not sure why the person who posted in July was trying to take a cube to the exit.
Zoraya  [작성자] 2014년 7월 23일 오후 4시 32분 
Thank you Shinval, I´m glad you enjoyed it!
Shinval 2014년 7월 23일 오후 4시 15분 
A nice concept and a fantastic design. I enjoyed boucning to each room and I had fun with the puzzles. Nice. Thanks!
Zoraya  [작성자] 2014년 7월 11일 오후 2시 47분 
I have no idea, what you did exactly and I had a lot of experienced player here and none of them bypassed the puzzles. Maybe you can make a video to show your solution way. I would be curious about it.

Most wouldn't go around the back of the top? I must be unusual then. I got through the first room without using the cube, Got the cube from the first floor out past the laserfield, and once I got to the roof I jumped back down to retreive it so I could take it through the exit. Alternatively, I could have entered the second floor without using the first faith plate at the end of the first floor, but I can't do that and rescue the cube.

Thanks Bayram, and nice to have you visit again!
Bayram 2014년 2월 12일 오전 10시 10분 
Fairly easy, but thumbs up for the unusual and interesting design.
Yavie 2013년 12월 21일 오후 10시 19분 
Pretty easy, but definitely required some stopping to think (: I agree with machmanx, an easter egg up top would have been cool if you could have done it (although I'm not one to go exploring, I always miss the easter eggs haha.)
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 10월 19일 오후 1시 06분 
Thanks again, BUG!
BUG 2013년 10월 19일 오후 1시 04분 
Very enjoyable and fun,thanks.
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 10월 11일 오후 4시 24분 
machmanx, that´s a good idea and I would love to implement it. But unfortunately the map is at it´s item limit, so I can´t add another item...
Thanks for playing!
machmanx 2013년 10월 9일 오후 12시 52분 
This was fun and easy. Nice use of the jump platforms.

I would add an easter egg or some sort of display on the other side of the top of the house. Most people would simply enter the gravity funnel to the exit, but only few would bother to get out and look on the other side ;)

Thank you, metadavid! I´m glad that you had fun playing it.
metadavid 2013년 9월 27일 오후 5시 36분 
That was great! Really well designed. Moderate difficulty, some things to figure out. Thanks
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 9월 9일 오전 11시 53분 
Thank you, Really hate working!

It was very fun to proceed. A large advanture!

Thank you, bross393!
bross393 2013년 9월 6일 오후 10시 26분 
once again you have put a lot of thought and detail into your test chamber! top notch!
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 8월 29일 오후 3시 46분 
Thank you for playing, Stagger Lee, I am glad that you enjoyed it. I have played several of your maps and found them very enjoyable too, some are even in my favorites list.
Stagger Lee 2013년 8월 29일 오후 1시 27분 
Fun experience. I enjoyed your puzzles in here. Nice work!
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 8월 21일 오후 2시 33분 
Thank you for playing, Phrendon! I am glad to hear that it was a challenge for you :-)
Phrendon 2013년 8월 21일 오후 2시 03분

Phrendon from this earth likes doing your puzzles, he told me :)

Thank you daloboy!
daloboy 2013년 8월 16일 오후 1시 24분 
Another really well design puzzle! The first one was extremely polished, as Jade BGE mention! Good work!
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 8월 11일 오후 12시 26분 
Thanks for playing and for your feedback, Brave. I´ve updated the map.
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 8월 11일 오후 12시 25분 
Thanks, kimist108.
Brave 2013년 8월 11일 오전 11시 52분 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr-4b3zuSec&feature=youtu.be This is the part about skipping the first level.
You fix that part, and i think your map should be fine!
kimist108 2013년 8월 10일 오후 9시 00분 
Woo Hoo! Another great test chamber.
Brave 2013년 8월 10일 오후 8시 45분 
By the way Zoraya, the whole first floor can be skip.
In the beginning before hitting the faith plate i can shoot 2 portals, 1 above the fizzler, and the other in front of the building, and drop right into the 2nd floor where the conversion gel is!
I'm sure you're gonna want to fix that!
Brave 2013년 8월 10일 오후 8시 36분 
Good map, felt like a sequel to your 4 floors chamber!
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 8월 9일 오전 11시 22분 
Thanks, I'm happy about your feedback.
Jade BGE 2013년 8월 9일 오전 11시 02분 
It did have a good balance. I especially enjoyed the creativity of getting the cube and how flawlessly it was respawned for easy access while in the second room. I did not expect that so when it happened I was so pleased that I didn't have to start over in the other room on the floor to get it again. Thanks again.
Zoraya  [작성자] 2013년 8월 9일 오전 10시 52분 
Thank you Jade. It was fun to build, although it has less puzzle elements than originally planned because of the item limitation. But I hope it still has a good balance of atmosphere and challenge.
I appreciate that you enjoyed it.
Jade BGE 2013년 8월 8일 오후 7시 53분 
Very cleaver ideas! I loved it. It worked perfectly. Thank you.
