    Right now, i have what looks like a closed areaportal ,even though all the entity flags suggest that it should be open, and it never receives any input of any kind. It worked in previous compiles and it has not been altered since, yet it has changed behavior. Any idea why?

    Areaportals are very sensitive to leaks. You should also check that vvis ran correctly.

    Areaportals also sometimes fail to compile if you just pick the fast option or if you compiled only entities. You should check map errors first (alt+p) , then compile errors to see if there is something there.

    Also - make sure the area portals aren't linking up with other ones that are far away. Sometimes they do that and it causes a lot of cruddy problems like this.

    Yeah source is a bitch. If there is anything that I have learned over the years its to clear all compile and running errors with a FULL compile (not final - just full bsp, vvis, and vrad) and then complain about problems. :p
