Interesting, but you do realize your relying on getting the code for the portal gun something which valve has not guaranteed and by observing precedents may not happen. We never got the code for CSS and DODS, I doubt we'll ever get code for TF2, I know we'll get it for EP2, but as for Portal... Its up in the air (pun intended). --Angry Beaver 13:57, 8 Dec 2007 (PST)

Some of the TF code has always been in the SE SDK code. That may be a hint. --wisemx 17:40, 8 Dec 2007 (PST)
Hmm, I haven't tought about that yet. Well, that can't be said for sure yet anyway, since the modification source code for the Orange Box isn't yet avaible via the SDK. For the time being, I took the server.dll and client.dll directly from the game Portal. In the worst case, I will have to wait for Episode Three, and see if that one features the Portal Gun (Borealis, huh). If so, I can get the code from there. And if I can't get the code for the Portal Gun at all, then I will skip it or write it myself (don't see that happening tough). It's not the gameplay element the whole mod is gonna be built upon.--Ricotez 03:47, 9 Dec 2007 (PST)
