You'll know what to expect if you played either Portal game at all. Guns that fire portals you can walk through. Currently other things can't go through them; I might add that in a second revision. Recommended to play in first-person. The cvar "showportalmarkers" can be toggled off to disable the markers that show your portals' locations through walls.

Known issues:
  • If you shoot a portal close to a corner, on a thin thok barrier (like GFZ1's), or on a thin FOF, it may get slightly glitchy and you might die upon teleporting. This can be fixed with some rudimentary portal bumping... maybe when I'm in the mood.
  • Near corners with other linedefs, wall portals may spawn at the wrong angle. Can be fixed with height checking, but the spawning mechanics for wall portals is already slow (I couldn't find a function to get linedefs in a particular sector, so I iterate through every single linedef in the level to try to find the one to spawn on.)
  • The game becomes very laggy in ERZ1 once a portal is spawned. I have no idea what causes this. (It's happened since before I added any thinker to the portals themselves.)

Oh wow, I saw this mentioned in the irc channel but I'm very impressed to see that this actually works in practice. Nicely done.

Many laughs were had in zoom tubes & on rope hangs. Just make sure that it doesn't cost you a life or get stuck forever.

I'd like to see some levels/maps designed for using portals.

Something that requires using portals to get through the level.

Gotta say, this wad makes the metal sonic race soo much easier. In fact, I beat metal sonic to the checkpoint, and had time to spare. I waited for him to see how far away he was, and I had to wait there for about half a minute :p.

I wasn't necessarily trying to report a bug, I'm pretty sure that Metal Robotnik wouldn't be supported anyways considering his height. I was just experimenting because I thought that the Portal Gun would help him beat the first act.

The Metal Sonic race is hilariously fun with the portal gun. Never again will I wait for him to bust through those spikes, I'll just shoot a portal through them instead! What's this? A long corridor? I'm not walking that I'll just portal myself to the other side!

*evil laughter*

I actually felt like I was playing portal when racing him. Especially that part after the multiple conveyor belts, where I would portal myself up to the tails/knuckles vent.

By the way, In a netgame I made a portal from the place where you meet Metal Sonic to the other side of the closing door. A lot of people were happy to have a second try (maybe third) that day.

This is fun as heck and I've only been playing for three seconds. My only complaint would be that there should be a button to remove your portals.

Okay fiiiiiine, but only because the last version was broken in the current game. Update. Changelog:
  • Fixed issue with portals disappearing on touch that began with 2.1.7
  • Made portals fullbright
  • Portals might be less likely to crush you (we all know how well that worked from the first update though)
  • Added sound when shooting portals (I don't give enough of a shit to add other sounds)
Now stop asking me about this addon.

Probably because of even more Lua updates breaking the scripts in this wad.
