    I'm following the following 2 guides (first one doesn't have proper detail and second one isn't for TF2):

    In following them I've set up "info_player_start" inside of my room, however whenever I start it, I start OUTSIDE of the room, and two walls aren't shown. I'm familiar with 3d editing somewhat so I know that the walls are properly placed, and I'm 100% sure that my spawn area is within the room (I've triple checked!)

    Is there anything else I could be doing wrong? Did something change and it's NOT info_player_start?

    :s
    Or is there just a better guide? I got to these two by checking the 'compilation of guides' of sorts here. o.o

    Probably a wrong entity, because tf2 doesn't use info_player_start, but info_team_spawn.
    Also, a recommendation from me is to place the spawnpoint a few inches above the ground (sometimes you spawn underground I've noticed).

    EDIT: The reason you were spawning outside the room is because without the proper spawn, the game spawns you at the map origin point, or some similar case.

    info_player_teamspawn* ;) and make sure they aren't touching the floor.

    Thanks both of you. The only other weird thing I noticed was that the origin point was indeed inside of the room as well, I'll retry it using the proper entity though :]

    Oh and it turned out working perfectly fine.
