Getting props in from other games. - A Forum Thread for Portal.

Rah halp me asap

So I am designing a map using the Portal SDK for a school project, and I attempt to use some props from HL2 such as the cafeteria tables, but they will not compile because I believe it cannot be 'located' since it's extras from HL2, not from Portal. What ends up happening is I get the map, but I the props are deleted. Is there a way that I can get my map to compile along with those models? If not, is there a way to manually get the things I need?

    I didn't think so. Anyways, I've already figured it out. Hopefully, this'll be good enough for me. Yay for cafeteria tables.

    I you can select them in the model browser than they will work. post your compile log. Most likely using the wrong prop_ type.
