[MAPPING] Line portals and sector portals?

Hey guys,

I'm trying to make portals using this tutorial.
https://www.dfdoom.com/gzdoom-portal-tutorial/

However, even after following it precisely, they still don't show up. What's wrong?

Zandronum does not support GZDoom line/sector portals. It only supports the old visual sector portal method, using the Lower Sector and Upper Sector thing types.

Not quite. You can also use sector portal lines (line type 57), the only portal type you can use in Zandronum is type 1 (GZDoom Builder lists as "Link to portal with same tag"). Using sector portal lines is way less headache inducing than using the upper and lower sector things, and much less prone to breaking in new terrifying and horrible ways.
