Tip: Remember, if you place a moon, midpoint, or Dragon Coin using direct Map16, it will always respawn when you re-enter that sublevel. Use the extended object instead.Not logged in.

Until the 20th of September.

If you have not tried it yet, do it. It kicks ass.

You can get it off steam.
I just got it.
I just heard its difficult to play on a keyboard.
I just figured out I don't have a controller i could use.
I just cursed very loudly.
I just read the reason why its free.

Is it free forever or will I have to pay for it to keep it?

You own it forever.

oh god please run Portal my weak little netbook please

e: It runs okayish in the earlier rooms (portal rendering is set to 0) but rooms with tons of geometry lag like heck.

I got it and it works fine but crashes every time a portal is fired. It worked perfectly on this shit-puter but the second that portal fired *BAM* over.
I know portal works on my computer, because I used to have a pirated copy. Just uninstalled that and got this. Feels good man.

It's just an advertising ploy to get you to love Portal so you'll want to buy Portal 2.

... which is the most amazing game I have ever played by the way.
Got Portal through the Orange box on my Xbox, but I'm glad it's free through Steam. I was always interested in PC games because how easily mods and custom content could be added, and Portal is no exception. I remember looking through some custom maps a few years ago, and I'm glad I finally have an incentive to give them a go.

I agree. I don't know if I'd call it one of my favorites ever, but it was definitely up there.

I have a soft spot for the first one though, and since I don't have it on this computer, I'm going to have to snag it while I can.

I have portal 1 for steam already, and played through it. It's alright but you can only play the same thing so many times. So I download custom maps! Also, I've made a few. One I made before is actually really good but uses regular guns instead of a portal gun. I really should post it on my youtube channel...

Meh, I bought it about a month ago, so this news doesn't affect me. But for those of you who have trouble running it, go to "properties" then "set launch options" and put "-novid -dxlevel 80". It went from about 3 to 30 FPS for me after doing that, so it's worth a try.

Wait, it's free.
Well then I guess I should delete my torrent that I got of it from like 3 months ago.
Meh, it's an okay game, but good enough to play for when I am bored.

Just back here to browse a bit.
Hey, pkhaxor, where exactly do I put that?

A keyboard + mouse is the ideal control setup for a first-person game. Controlling first-person games with, say, an Xbox controller is really hard; you have a lot more control with the mouse than an analog stick.
Working on stuff again 👀
I am pleasantly surprised that this actually runs on my old pile-o'-garbage computer. I do get a bit of lag in the larger rooms even on the lowest visual settings, but apart from a few places (the main corridor of test chamber 15 and the cutscene that plays just after you defeat GLaDOS) it's nothing too crippling.

Just 2 questions. I don't know much about steam since I never really use it.

Do I keep it forever once it's done downloading and installs or before that?

And since I know this netbook wont run it, you can transfer steam games and stuff to another computer, right?

I've played and beaten portal before, it's a great game. I just don't officially own it, if you know what I mean.
