Step 1: converting portal 2 map into .VMF file

  • 2: open BSPsrc and drag and drop your chosen map into it, then click decompile and save it somewhere (desktop would work fine)

  • 3: you should now have a .vmf file of your chosen map, this file type can be opened in steamvr authoring tools but it currently wont work, no clue why but I found a fix

Step 2: fixing the .vmf file

 

  • ok, so now you have a vmf file of your chosen portal 2 map, but it currently wont open in steamvr. to fix this you need the portal 2 authoring tools

  • open up the portal 2 authoring tools and launch “hammer world editor”

 

  • now in hammer, go to file, open, and select the vmf file of your portal 2 map. you should end up with something like this:

  • now click file then export then export the map to another location (and probably change the name so you dont lose it) i will rename mine to “portal2maptest”

Step 3: opening the map in steamvr authoring tools

 

  • open steamvr, then on the window where it shows your headset and controllers, click the 3 lines at the top left, then click workshop then click create/modify an environment. this window should open:
