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.

When I installed this mod it didn't work (When I had the Portal demo) Then had to re-install, After that days passed and I fanaly I got the Full verson of portal, then I installed it angan and it didn't work, Intill now, the boss fight level and the freedom level with the lazer maps are still there! the game thinks its Chapter 13 The End Of Testing. So i gess all I now have to do is put in the maps!

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!

If you didn't, install them in order, replace the original files with the lazer patch first then the steampipe patch.

That startup_loading.vtf is actually no longer required by the mod because it uses different files for those load screens etc. So if its still coming up with that then it's most likely you made a mistake installing, but i wont rule out that its to do with other machines...

Also have you converted your portal 1 to the steampipe system? Because I dont think the steampipe version of the mod would work with pre-steampipe portal 1.

Well it worked, but there is a rectangular black border around the portals. I'm still going to play it, but I just want to let you know.

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.
