I'm sorry, could you elaborate on what is wrong or post a screen shot or other any other visual representation of what is wrong?

Currently you're being very vague, keep in mind we have no telepathic abilities and you will need to explain in detail what is wrong or we will not get it.

lol i am very sorry. i was in a hurry to type it since i was getting ready for my next class at university. i'll explain. so the game runs near perfect. one small problem. where there are supposed to be humans, there is a big red ERROR polygon in the place of it. there are also big red ERROR throughout various small parts of the game. its still playable and enjoyable, but I would love to fix this problem for good so the people who have been watching me play it don't keep commenting about it hahaha. now to elaborate about "big red ERROR" it's just like i say. in big red letters standing up on the ground the word ERROR is in various places as if it were part of the game. they also glow. i'll post a screenshot in my next post which will be in the next few minutes.

Yeah I think the problem is is that you miss those textures... I am guessing you do not have half life 2 installed...

To fix this you can either buy half life 2 (it's a good game!) or download and install the source sdk trough steam, which is free. This should add the missing textures to the resources and the game should then load them...

Give us a screenshot of your steam games list.

That's what I thought.
No Steam games list screenshot, no proof that you own Portal.
