    If you make an addons folder and put VPKs in built off of the example from Alien Swarm or off of the L4D2 addoninfo.txt they will load. The only thing is there is no add-ons menu added yet so you'll have to wait on that, custom skin and model replacements dont work yet either an update is needed.

    As of right now there is no difference from putting them in an addon or directly in the maps folder, you still have to load from console.

    Is there any way to force the game into running in Pixel Shader Model 2.0 instead of 2.0b using launch options trickery? I sure would like to be able to play this game. :saddowns:

    Found the removed 'sticky' paint. It does not do anything though:


    Turn off smart edit and make the paint type "1"

    Has anybody tried opening Portal 2 with tools yet?
    Probably late.
    Source filmmaker texture has been there since Team Fortress 2 or something.

    Gabe kept his word to me about the SDK :buddy:


    Fuck nothing happens when I launch the authoring tools

    I have a question:

    If the project that they find that has "Chell" written on the bottom was from "Bring Your Daughter to Work Day",
    http://media.pcgamer.com/files/2011/04/Portal-2-Chell-Potato.jpgand that was the day before all the scientists were gassed, what happened to Chell on that day? Why is she 20-something during Portal 1 if you don't age in stasis?

    That was years before GLaDOS' activation.

    Whatno. Wheatley says "that didn't go well", and one can only assume that, well, they were there during GLaDOS's "episode"

    Edited:

    Anyways if GLaDOS did kill the scientists on BYDTWD, then what's up with the time gap between then and Portal 1?

    Unless Chell is secretely retarded and that was her work as a 20 year old

    Probably only slightly shopped, given that the Companion Cube looks like a cardboard box wrapped in Companion Cube wrapping.

    Of course it's real. It's not like the picture is something only a high technological alien race can come up with. It's a god damn truck with the words Aperture Laboratories stamped on it with a cardboard box in the cargo :frog:

    On a previous BYDTWD. When Wheatley said "that didn't end well," he meant the tradition "didn't end well."

    GLaDOS was activated on Bring Your Daughter to work day.
    Let's think about this.

    If Chell was a daughter at BYDTWD, then she would have been put into stasis in Long-Term Relaxation, right? However, Long-Term Relaxation also stops the subject from aging. We would be playing as an 8-year-old. Doug has a file on her as well, showing she volunteered for testing, at the age she is in the games. Meaning that it couldn't have started on BYDTWD. The most likely time of GLaDOS taking over is Bring Your Cat To Work Day, the day Henry gave GLaDOS access to neurotoxin. At this point it's been years since BYDTWD, which is probably the day they actually turned her on for the first time and became self aware. They managed to turn her off before the lockdown, which is all the time Henry and Doug mentioned in the comic.

    I was reading the collector's guide and it definitely said that GLaDOS was activated on Bring Your Daughter to Work Day. That's when the few surviving scientists put the Morality Core on GLaDOS. And that's what Wheatley was talking about when he said it didn't end well.

    exactly. did it say she had acess to neurotoxin that day? because I'm not arguing she was turned on then. I'm just saying she didn't flood the Enrichment Center then and trap Chell.

    I think it did say that she did use the neurotoxin, actually.

    Then it's wrong because according to Lab Rat she didn't have access to neurotoxin when they installed the Morality Core
