So here's the deal. Two weeks ago I completed the last of the test chambers. I then decided to go through and fix up all the style (just visual) stuff that I didn't already fix up, that meant I went through every single test chamber and updated the platforms and signs etc.

Things I did in the final sweep that I hope people are glad I've done: (Although I could totally understand it if you just expected them)
- All old pistons (holding up platforms) have been replaced either with the portal 2 equivalent pistons or
with moving panels as seen frequently throughout portal 2.
- Made custom test chamber signs that include all the puzzle elements in the mod including anti-gravity.
- Fixed elevators being down their shafts if the map is loaded directly into. (I can't believe I didn't fix
that before...)
- Added auto-saves all over the place.

Now I have been working on the first escape sequence map. Unfortunately for me, I have grand plans for it and my attempts at making something... 'grand'... haven't been going all that well. I've spent 3 days trying to make a scene that'll last about 20 seconds in game...

The state of the escape maps was one of my greatest shames with the original. It was functional but not interesting or 'authentic' at all in my opinion (hindsight). I'll try my best to do you guys right by this version.

Given time...

Oooh PS: as far as I have read, Portal 2 has trouble with custom scene files. Not to worry, I have seen how to force subtitles in game without custom scenes. Let There Be Subtitles!

PPS: Not that the dialogue is written yet. The quality of the written script and voice actors (that includes my voice acting) ability was my other greatest shame. I will once again try my best to make believable, interesting, good quality dialogue.

Never mind, I got it to work! Yay!

Finally! I've been wanting to play this for two years!

Hey, I just wanted to say this.

I really like this mod. It's my favorite mod ever. Even though I've never gotten it to work(downloading mods outside of Steam is not easy), I've seen playthroughs. I want to play it so badly, though!

I really like the idea behind this. I like how you put some stuff from Portal 2 into Portal 1.

But my favorite thing about this mod? The characters and story. My favorite character is Persephone(I think that's her name?). She seems like the type of person who would be super nice and bake cookies(or cake, since, y'know, this is Portal) for everyone. Her voice sounds really cool, too.

I don't know the name of the character you play as, though. Is she supposed to be Chell, or someone new?

If I was more active in the Portal fandom like I used to be, I would write a fanfiction.(But this mod is so damn underrated that I don't know if anyone would read it except for me.)

Seriously though, this mod needs attention. I don't know anyone who even knows about it!!

I read that you were making an improved version in Portal 2, but the last update was from two years ago, so I don't know if you canceled it(it's a shame if you did, but I totally understand if you couldn't continue).

Anyway, I don't know if you're still out there, but I just thought you should know that someone out there really enjoys what you've made.

Thank you for making this.

Aww, thank you so much. That means so much to me :)
I fully intended to complete the Portal 2 remake, but other things in my life just took over, unfortunately.
I'd love to go back to it and finish off the remake but nowadays I just don't have the time. Maybe if I find myself with some free time, I may just revisit it and see if I can at least polish off what is already done and get it out there.
Thanks again, this made my day ;)

It's cool, stuff happens and you can't really control that. I hope one day you'll be able to finish it.

Besides, a lot of great games take time to complete. I bet this will be even better than the first!

"Start Game" does not work when I click it, after you click "New Game" on the start screen.

I notices that the icon in steam is the custom portal unity icon but when I make a desktop icon it uses the portal 1 icon. is there a picture file in the game's files that I can use to change the desktop icon?

Yep, if you go into the mod directory->resource->icon there are a couple of .tga files that steam uses for ui icons, you can grab them from there ;)

Portal unity starts of quite interesting and introducest many new puzzle elements. The maps are challenging, while mostly remaining fair. However, after a good start the mod steadily becomes increasingly dull. The mod concludes with a very boring bossfight and a totally unrewarding end.
