Ever since my original installation of Episode 2, I've dealt with issues that make me angry. 

Advisors show orange circles when they hold someone/thing
The portal is always closed.
Some textures don't show.

checking files didn't work.
reinstalling it didn't help at all.

It works fine on mobility mod and MMod, i'm unsure why it happens in the vanilla game.

I'm gonna try to see if it's anything to do with HDR and mat_dxlevel, though i have my doubts.
 I'll come back  to y'all if i find anything. Maybe i am not the only being annoyed through this.





Quick Update

certainly no progress here. but i found out the portal storms look fucked. they're a literal colorless ball.

    Looks like your episode 2 is running on DirectX 8 and that is cause these problems. try adding -dxlevel 95 in your set launch options and removing the string after you launch your ep 2. This would set your game in DirectX 9 and this might reset your resolution.
