1 comment by Rorius on Feb 12th, 2014

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.

Installed it plus the patches, and I still get the error "File missing : startup_loading.vtf". I went into the rar file for the second patch and there is no "startup_loading.vtf" in the location the error said. And like you said previously, it may be because we didn't install it correctly. Well, that's not the case apparently. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

When I launch the game, an error message comes up saying something along the lines of "File missing : startup_loading.vtf" Any ideas on how to fix it?

That sounds like you didnt copy over the entire steampipe patch, that error was occuring beacuse of intro menu map name clashes with Portal caused by the new SteamPipe system.

The steampipe patch updates the mod to work with the new steam game distrubution, its under the downloads section where mod and patch downloads are (under moddb, if you used Desura to get the mod you still need to go to moddb to get it)

After actually updating portal to steampipe and trialing some things I've found that the error people are getting (72/brush_clock_milliseconds_cell - func_brush: UTIL_setmodel: not precached: *11 ) has something to do with the background map used in the main menu, for now, copying the portal 1 background map into the mod map folder fixes this but I will try to release an update to fix this properly.

Stay tuned

minecraftircmod, don't forget about the console, you can do nifty stuff with that such as spawn npcs, give yourself gun, shoot portal anywhere such a black walls, etc..

it also has easier/better controls, quicksaving(F6 by default) and quickloading(F9 by default, i use F7 which is the default for goldsource and for portal 2), i have it both on the xbox and on the PC, i recommend to use the xbox version more for the advanced chamber challenges and for the still alive maps(the still alive maps are only for the still alive xbox live arcade version of portal) and the PC version for other things

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.
