    Area portal leak [fixed - thanks blob!]

    Okay so one hurdle that I have been unable to solve is this damned area portal leak.

    [​IMG]

    As shown in the image, the leak goes from the area portal to the skybox. Just straight in to it.

    All handles are centered. I have remade the areaportal. I have remade the skybox. There are no normal leaks, just the areaportal. There are no entities inside brushes.
    That's all I can think of that I checked. So yeah, surely somebody has an idea? D;

    edit: also did the alt+p for problems, nothing.

    also, a pre-emptive compile log so you don't have to ask.

    Turn off func_details and props, then check to see if the area is sealed. Also, if you have windows or something see-through, that need to be func_areaportal windowed also.

    I always make them with func_detail hidden, and I always make sure to area_portal the windows too, but thanks.

    If you are compiling with all point entities hidden, turn them on.

    I didn't have anything hidden when compiling.

    Ya know how if two area portal brushes are the same size and on the same axis they are merged? Maybe it has something to do with that, merging area portals and whatnot

    I would like to thank Blob for fixing the map :love:

    The problem was that there were tiny holes/gaps but the pointfile can go die in a fire because it's not very good at pointing them out apparently. So the areaportals were leaking through the tiny holes which I had no idea existed. Blob went through and fixed them for me :3

    Yes, sorry about that but it as far as I was /aware/ it was sealed, since I was expecting the pointfile to travel through tiny gaps as it has done before for me.

    edit: also blob actually went through and sealed them up, so I gave him credit >.>

    Use the grid on large scales and avoid this.
