View Full Version : [PORTAL] ATTN: All who play Portal

I have an art project coming up for my sculpture class, in which we need to sculpt a quite/proverb/phrase, and I have decided to create 13 cubes and use "The cake is a lie" (on one side of each cube), and to include plenty of in-game screenshots and advertising art (on the other unused sides). This is where you all come in: I need at least 26 artistically interesting high-resolution screenshots from the standard test chamber areas, 13 from the industrial areas (the last few legs of the last level, and any of the intermittent smaller areas) and 13 from the final chamber that houses GLaDOS. I'd prefer to not have the reticle in the picture, so, you can crop the image, or if there is a way to remove the reticle for screen shot purposes, you can do that. Thanks and +rep in advance to all who help me with this project.

the reticle can be removed by putting "cl_drawhud 0" in the console.
btw, does anybody know the command to remove the first person weapons from the screen as well?

I also think rectile 0 works. I could do this, how high res are you considering?

One quadrant of the screen at at least any res. in the thousands should work. Really, though, just anything that doesn't look crappy. The cubes won't be much bigger than 3 inches, since I'm going to have to make 13 of them, along with the text for the quote. Also, if anyone can get their hands on any more images like these (http://www.moddb.com/games/9995/portal/addons/9138/portal-icon-pack), that would be great.

r_drawviewmodel 0 for no portal gun.
This sounds like a cool project. If I have time, I might takea few screenshots.

Thanks on both accounts (the weaponless command and the potential screenshots).

So, I think I have all of my pictures ready. I spent about 3 hours playing portal and getting over 400 screenshots of interesting and detailed images, then spent another hour and a half selecting the ones I wanted and cropping/resizing them down to size (300 square pixels). So, Here are all 13 groups of 5 images, each having their own category and their own letter (which I will be working on as you read this probably), along with each group being somewhat in order with the storyline of Portal. If anyone has any that they would like to submit, feel free. I'm still open to changing most of them out for better pictures.

"The cake is a lie
The cake is a lie
The cake is a lie
The cake is a lie"?

Shit, you're right. Thanks for the catch. I had a few of those from its different instances, but must've messed up when sorting out what went where. Fixing as we speak.
e: Done. 2nd to last set.
