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...
Rorius

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.

I encountered an issue, regarding a D2D, or D3D device.. the mod won't even properly start, it just flickers the black screen on and off (game is attempting to start up), which is REALLY bad.. especailly since I have no f***ng idea what is causing it..

Dear everyone

Due to my bad internet upload speeds the mod will probably be available late tonight, sorry for the very last minute delay.

Also to anyone who dosnt have hl2, we have discovered that several people who dont have hl2 installed on their computor are able to play our mod completely, we are about 90% sure you guys wont be needing hl2 to play our mod, please keep us informed about any discoveries you find when it comes to playability and compatability.

Thankyou in advance

I hadnt even heard of 'Desura' before, it looks quite similar to steam.
At this point in time we dont plan to release it on desura but we'll think about it later on (post release)

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.
