    I have a bunch of the plain lightbulbs in my map and i want to add an env_lightglow to each of them to make it look realistic. i position the env_lightglow in the bulb and make sure its glow proxy geometry size is larger than the raduis of the bulb, but when i test the map the glow isnt there. even if i place a env_lightglow alone by itself it still doesnt show up. why is this happening and how can i fix it? thanks

    When you run the map set everything to normal.

    of what? i have the light_env in the sky, and i have a sealed building. annd inside the building are lightbulbs on the ceiling with a "light", and an "env_lightglow" that for some reason isnt rendered.

    Use Media Fire to host the file so I can download it to look at it.
