It's interesting that the dear esther has a non steam version. What's stopping someone from just using that portal 2 engine binary and using it to run their own game? (assuming you had the portal 2 interfaces)
Nothing stops you. Dear Esther isn't the first no-Steam Source engine game.
This is already possible without the source code though.
Network: IP 192.168.1.102, mode MP, dedicated No, ports 27015 SV / 27005 CL

Can someone teach me how to compile this? I've got Visual C++ Express 2010 installed on my Windows 7 x64 PC, if that matters.
if they got portal multiplayer working, does that mean we could get hl2 coop with portals?
I don't see why not, however, it is pretty much illegal to use any of this code.
I thought portal had MP code from the start?
there was a video i remember watching in 2009 showcasing it off, long before this leak
Yeah but I remember a group of people (at least 6) on a portal server with a ported version of de_dust
It was real too he showed himself connecting to the server
They never used the portals because of crashing. Only way to get working Portal MP is to play Portal 2 or fix the leaked code and then make a mod out of it to use the game assets.
I found a working link (very tough google-fu) and might give it out if I confirm it's correct. It is about 160Mb in size, anyone have an MD5?
If people can't find it on their own, then they probably don't have the brains to do anything with it either.
Someone over at a Russian site leaked the leak
So, is the compiled version of hammer launchable?
