Unknown Leak
When I try to run my map in Hammer it comes up with this message:
Area portal leak! File: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Portal 2\sdk_content\maps\preview.lin
I don't see how this is a leak though, because I bordered the entire map in a giant nodraw box, so can someone tell me how to fix this problem?

Seriously, post these on thinkingwithportals.com

It means you have an areaportal in your map. Correct? The area portal acts like a regular brush for the inside of your map. There should be no visible path to get on both sides of the area portal without going through. If your map is extremely cluttered, just delete it and take the lag. Also, don't surround a map with nodraw, or any box for that matter. Seal it properly.

I don't have an eMail. You need to use one right? Either way I'm not even familiar with ThinkingwithPortals.com.

What is an areaportal? I'm modifying a map I made in the PeTI and I don't know if I ever made one.

An areaportal is a brush entity usually textured with an areaportal texture. Try going to the top menu, view, load pointfile. I'm not completely sure if this works for areaportals, so if it doesn't, go to the face edit sheet and replace all areaportal textures with an easily seen texture.
Too bad about the E-mail thing. That website is SO helpful.

there are already areaportals in maps, and they will cause leaks if you did what tanger2b is warning you about... seriously do join ThinkingWithPortals.com
also dont edit PTI chambers, you will understand your problem much better if you just make the chamber in Hammer

Don't you need an email for steam?

I always knew I was phsycic.
At any rate, why don't you:
A. Use you parents on the site.
or
B. Make a free acount on Gmail?
You wouldn't even necessarily have to use the account for anything other then the site.
