Portal:Env Fire fix
This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality.
The Env_fire entity is broken in portal.
There's actually a half good reason for this.
In the Source engine, the Env_fire entity looks for the particle "fire_01.pcf" to use. This contains all the necessary particles, like smoke, large/medium/small fires, etc. In Half Life 2, this works fine.
However, in Portal, the fire pit particles seen at the end of the test chambers are also named "fire_01.pcf". This creates some conflicts, as the Env_fire can't find the correct particles within the Portal fire pit particle system. This is further complicated by the absence of any Env_fires in the original Portal. had any been placed during development, this problem would have been dealt with far before Portal was released.
