    Okay now there's some serious problems.
    The editor is broken. I can't compile a single map without it having an error.

    I suppose asking for a solution now is pointless, so I'll have to wait...

    Quick question - how do you update a previously published map? Or do you have to re-publish it under a new name and with a new workshop page?

    Okay, so I can't figure out which files break hammer and which break portal 2. I'll just repost it:

    Old /bin/ files to fix hammer

    CAUTION: Will break portal 2! Also includes the old vbsp.exe and portal2.fgd so you'll have to get the new ones yourself. I strongly recommend backing everything up before using this.

    I tried checking the cache, and even if it told me 7 files were corrupted and redownloaded them, it didn't fix anything.

    I had similar problems. Its to do with faith plates not handling errors properly. I suspect its because u have a button it its path.

    On the other hand, maybe Valve is going the extra mile for some new ARG.

    Is anyone else getting "Error Number: 9" when they try to publish?

    EDIT: Fixed it. If anyone else is having that issue, save as a different name, and then publish again.

    I think I did rather well. It's not too clutered, not to complicated but I hope you have to think.

    Have fun , I'd appreciate if you'd try it.
    Quite entertaining. Just so that you know, the faith plate on the right, closest to the buttons doesn't seem to work.

    If my map fails to compile, what do I do? Well, besides send in the report?

    Also where is the report? It says "Games folder" but I'm not sure where that is.

    Also, no, it isn't the faith plates. Compiling fails on all of my maps, regardless of their content. The compiling time is somewhat different though, but it always fails.

    Why the hell does it need to compile each time to publish a test chamber when I have already compiled it . I reckon using Hammer to publish is faster than this.

    To fix error, 2 Options:

    1- Change name of the bin folder, verify your cache of portal 2.

    2- Remove authoring tool and verify your caches

    I started trying things. went to uninstal portal, said i couldnt because the beta author tool was reliant on it. deleted that, went to launch, failed to launch over and over, so i uninstalled. now the long wait for my shitty net to redownload

    What I don't get is that it seems to work just fine in the beta.
    Then they release it in the main game, and it breaks after a few uses

    Logic in Portal, whatever

    So I'm probably late, but I looked up some info on Greg.

    "According to Cave Johnson, in a line which was also cut from the game, he fought a bear once."
    http://www.teamfortress.com/images/p...shavedbear.mp3
    Gregs voice is muffled.
    Greg is pyro.

    My first and probably last map that you should give a shot. Incredibly simple, and very pointless, but it has a lot of lasers.

    Great, wonderful. Amazing.
    I tried deleting the Authoring Tools as many people advised me to. Now the game is getting the missing DLL error and won't launch at all.

    Valve, damnit, I can understand this isn't easy, but it isn't for us either

    this is what fixed it for me yall

    Hi,

    It looks like you have the old version of vbsp.exe (not the one that came with the puzzle editor update). Do you have the 'Portal 2 Authoring Tools' installed by any chance?

    If so, it's possible they may be interfering (i.e the game is seeing the version of vbsp.exe from the authoring tools), so you could try verifying your Portal 2 cache (optionally uninstalling the authoring tools first).
    another if people are still broken:

    Ok, we believe the problem is that the vbsp.exe from the Authoring Tools is overwriting the one from the Portal 2 update.

    As a quick fix, please try this and let me know if it works:
    - delete vbsp.exe from your "<Steam>\steamapps\common\portal 2\bin" folder
    - verify your Portal 2 game cache (it should download the right version of vbsp.exe)
    - try building your test chamber again
