Jiblets.
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 [i]someone[/i] has to start a mod to remake beta content.
Cool.
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.

[media]http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/motion.jpg[/media] DO NOT PUT YOUR HAND ON THE OPERATIONAL END OF THE DEVICE lol just had to say that, but it looks awesome.
Looks pretty good so far, keep it up!
Hell yeah, do want
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.

[QUOTE=Num Lock;16811945]Qurl why must you hate[i] everything[/i]? Seriously man, every post I see of yours you're bitching about something.[/QUOTE] 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.
[QUOTE=qurl;16812033]The effects from the first portal trailer would be cool as fuck.[/QUOTE] We are working on those aswell, only our main focus right now is to finish with Project-Beta.

I was hoping for someone to remake that old Portal map, that thing was the shit!
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. [media]http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/Trailerstuff.jpg[/media] I decided to work on the Noise Blur, Gradient, and Overlay a bit and here is what I came up with. [media]http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/lol_Alpha_Portal.jpg[/media] Finally after another hour and a half of editing, I came up with this cool image. [media]http://media.moddb.com/images/mods/1/12/11627/ohsnapalpha1.jpg[/media] 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.
I'm not even trolling now. What's this about? Portal 2 Beta or something?
[QUOTE=Hunterbrute;17043434]*beta portal pics*[/QUOTE] Looks great
as far as i can tell its about recreating the old portal
[QUOTE=Lamp;17045648]as far as i can tell its about recreating the old portal[/QUOTE] Still not nearly as good as Checkerboarded Hopes 2.
i'm flattered
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 [b]Beta[/b]". 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.

FUCK.[/QUOTE] 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.
i put the right files in sourcemods nout happened when i restarted steam and checked

do we need portal?
[QUOTE=Craptaskeet;17047603]Because it looks better than the old male test subject[/QUOTE] Yeah pretty much. [QUOTE=ollyeng;17047655]do we need portal?[/QUOTE] Yes you need portal, however the Demo has very little content compared to the full version of PB.
Looks sweet.
