    Particles - CabooseJr
    Mapping - reepblue, Caboosejr, OneQuarterLife, and Hen Mazolski
    Background Creation - reepblue, Caboosejr
    Modeling - Snood and CaveJ
    Mod Compilation - Hunterbrute
    Scripting - CaveJ
    Web - CaveJ
    Art - CaveJ
    The Mod Team - Hunterbrute, CabooseJr, reepblue, Snood, and CaveJ.

    Looks fucking awesome, I especially like the new portal. I always thought the one put in retail looked a bit dull and weak. I love how with every VALVe game that comes out someone has to start a mod to remake beta content.

    I never really understood this mod; is it supposed to restore Portal's visuals to the beta stages or is it trying to be a Portal prequel? Either way, I really dig those new portals...and I recognize that map. Don't remember when exactly I played it but I know I did somewhere along the line. Awesome to see it expanded; I remember when I got to the end of the first version.

    Well as of today I just added the story behind Project-Beta to the moddb, it is in the newest News Article.

    Honestly, you raped the particle effects, they are half assed and OTT. Maps are bland, I don't see the point in this 'mod' If you can call it that.

    We did not "rape" the particle effects, just recreated the ones that went with the Spiral Portals.

    I don't hate everything I just think the effects are unnecessary and OTT. The effects from the first portal trailer would be cool as fuck.

    Massive Bump, I know but I would rather not make a new thread about this.

    Alot of people have been asking about the trailer Portals, so I decided I would show what we have so far.

    When I first received the files from Cave they werent as good as I thought they would be.
    http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/Trailerstuff.jpg
    I decided to work on the Noise Blur, Gradient, and Overlay a bit and here is what I came up with.
    http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/lol_Alpha_Portal.jpg
    Finally after another hour and a half of editing, I came up with this cool image.
    http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/ohsnapalpha1.jpg
    There is an odd glitch in the last image with his feet going through 2 portals, but thats due to the speed and time in which I took the screenshot.

    So basically this is just another "I can maek mah protal look betar den ur potral!", but instead of a huge skin and model pack, it's a mod?

    And why is the character a half life 2 citizen?

    Haha, I think I'm the only one who understands the name "Project Beta".
    Obviously they're trying to restore the visuals and maps of the Portal build from the trailers.

    I mean, seriously. I thought you guys would have gotten it by now. FUCK.

    Partially, the visuals from the beta werent that great. We are recreating certain things from the Beta/Alpha, the chambers are a very small part to it.

    The main goal is to bring some life back into the Portal community and some actual changes to the game. Just think of Project-Beta as a mod no different thank any other Portal mod.

    Yes you need portal, however the Demo has very little content compared to the full version of PB.

    Thats probably early Alpha or maybe right in the early development stages.

    Here is a new image from our Mini Mod coming out later this year.

    This image was taken from the valve presentation about how they developed portal
    http://www.hl-inside.ru/go/?http://w...PostMortem.pdf

    Would be ALOT cooler if the guys didn't recreate the latest stages of development, but the early versions with the game in different setting like in the picture.
