Portal Gun (Handheld Portal Device) is a device that creates an inter-spatial portal (wormhole) in the level.

It is quake version of the gun from game Portal (part of Orange box) by Valve.

The latest state of source code is hosted on Github.com


Idea is simple: fire with the portal gun to the desired locations to open first and second portal. Now, the wormhole is created between them. You can enter it, or close it down, or even toss some objects through.
This mod tries to simulate (poorly) the physic as seen in original Portal game. That means, when you enter the first portal, your velocity and angles is restored on the other side of wormhole.
This allows you to do big jumps using gravity, and other tricks. Teleporting of pickups is possible, which allows interesting strategies (like gathering pickups on one place and the pick them all up at once; or reaching distant items just by shooting at them).


Controls are defined in autoexec.cfg. It's inspired by wecreatestuff's version of the game:

[p] - unsheathe portal gun.
[q] - fire blue portal.
[e] - fire yellow portal.
[f] - grab item.
[w][s][a][d] - movement.

I hope you enjoy it!

DISCLAIMER: Please note, that this modification is not commercial and I'm not trying to cause any financial harm to Valve company. If the Valve corporates think, I'm ruining their business, I'm ready to take it down from the internet (but I'm gonna hate them for the rest of my life :)

Hello,

I've decided to put the source code on github.com and continue maintenance from there.
The repository is located at RobSis/quake-portal-gun.

Here on moddb.com, I will only upload the major releases.

I put the source code on github if anyone want to continue working on the project github.com/atphalix/quake1-portal in addition is is no longer necessary to have original Quake1 data to play as I replaced everything with free content.

This is for Quake Portal Gun mod developers, specifically mappers...
I have gotten a couple questions about making "portal proof walls."
I looked into the code and map source and made this guide: Moddb.com
If that contains any inconsistencies, let me know and I'll update it.

Whoo! Dusted my processor (first time ever) and my seven year old tower came back to life. Ran 'portal_gun2.3' and mechanically all was well, the walls that weren't meant to be portalable ...wern't. But I was getting major graphical glitches ...I'll have a play around later and see what I can do for it, after all I need to be able to test what I'm making before I press on. (Just dropped by to say things were looking up at my end, fingers crossed I'll be able to resolve the ram issues by extending some brushes.) I'll keep you posted.

Getting best results from proGlquake. Just reducing the polygon count in the two rooms I'd made in the first palce at the moment. I've deffinatly used some wrong values somewhere because the non-portalable walls in the the second chamber don't always render. Been a bit distracted amusing myself playing with the cube in 'phystest'. :)

All I need in fact is the .map for 'pellet' to get the values I need. :/

No, but it moves so slow it might seem so. It also smells badly :)
My mapper took a break, so did I.
