Here's an error I haven't seen before. I portalized, and this came up:
"Error: check_poly_reversed: couldn't find non-colinear points."
I went into the crash log, and it lists brush numbers I haven't even reached yet.

It gives you brush numbers so you can use the command hilight_brush X (X = brush number).

It might be hard to find pick it out from all the others, but that's dromed for ya

It recorded numbers that are higher than the number of brushes in the level

There it goes again. the log records brush numbers in the 300's. I haven't even reached the 200's.

Here's another problem: Dromed keeps displaying an error. I opened the crash log, and deleted the brushes. It still happened. I deleted different ones with the numbers. It still happened. It's been going like that for Half an Hour. What is wrong now?

When the mission gets bigger, you want to forget about Portalizing, and Optimize instead. Portalizing big missions will more than likely result in errors. Try optimizing and see if that helps.

Same result. Dromed displays the error, and then records the same numbers in the crash log.

You're going to have to use Area brushes to seperate your mission into parts and optimize each one. When you come to the part which causes errors, you'll know where it is.
