The ending elevator is incorrectly clip'd
This probably isnt noticeable in the main game, but in PTI maps, if theres a fulled pointed directly at the door, you float into the elevator tube

I ran into 2 bugs with the Portal 2 Editor, both are related to lasers.

Reflection Cubes don't obey the laws of gravity when they are receiving an incoming laser. For example when an active Reflection Cube is on an Angled Panel and the platform is turned off the cube will remain where it was in mid air. This includes being able to get cubes stuck in their Dropper by pointing a laser at it. It seems to be purely a gravity problem I think because on an oscillating Track Platform an active Reflection Cube does respond to the physics and will shift side ways.

The second problem is with wall mounted Laser Relays, they don't activate with their corresponding Laser on the floor. It is however possible to turn them on by pushing a vertical Reflection Cube up against the wall to get the laser to be closer to the surface. But they should work because the distance of the relay from the floor or wall is equal and in the editor they are illustrated as making contact.

I have a room with examples of these bugs and pictures here:

I just bought the game today and ran into an odd glitch at the first part of the game:

In the rest room you start out in, as Wheatley prepares the room to be moved my character flies up to the ceiling, from there I can jump and see through it and when Wheatley moves the room I'm left standing on nothing. D:

Cursor Disappeared Recently

I hadn't been playing Portal 2 until the most recent update, but at the beginning of it it was fine, and at some point it's not.

A screenshot to this behavior is here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/gdelphi...01264258347951
  • This issue is a graphics issue.
  • I'm currently on Windows 7 (64-bit) with a Core i5-2500K, 16GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 with driver version 296.10 (also tried the beta, 301.24).
  • The exact problem is that the blue/orange portal cursor is gone, and doesn't show up anymore. This happens everywhere, all the time.
  • The only references I've found on the internet relating to the cursor disappearing are when using something called "Eyefinity" but I don't think I have that. I've tried updating my graphics driver and messing with a few of the graphics settings in-game, but nothing's helped thusfar. But one of the settings, when I got back into the game, flickered the cursor ever so briefly, and then it went away.

Just to elaborate on what someone already said, when using an xbox 360 controller in co-op, trying to ping or gesture results in you getting stuck in a menu that you can never get out of and you have no choice but to quit the game. Please fix this soon.

In the menu "Community Test Chambers", played levels don't appear in "My History".

Probably been stated before but:
Cubes stop moving while in a excursion funnel intersection.
Unlike the player, who follows the new excursion funnel, cubes stop moving whenever they find an intersection of excursion funnels

I'm the one on PS3 and it failed to connect to both myself on PC (multiple times) and a friend on PC.
I'm surprised this isn't being mentioned more often, but this is definitely broken. When attempting to play co-op between a PC and PS3, the PS3 continues to load without a problem (blue dots on the loading screen all become yellow and the game starts waiting for the other player), and once that's done the PC side then starts loading, but the blue dots get half-way. The PS3 disconnects within a few seconds after this point.

This is exactly the same as posted above, so yet another confirmation that this is an issue. Co-op was working perfectly fine, even on May 8 just before I allowed the DLC to be installed, and since the DLC was installed this has not worked.

The PC is an i7-980x 3.33GHz with 24GB RAM, Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity 2GB graphics card, etc. Both machines are on the same LAN, with a 100mbps connection to the Internet. Average latency to most steam servers in the area is under 10ms.

It's nice to have new test chambers in single player mode, but co-op is still the best part of the game for us and it's a shame it's now broken.

Hello. I recently found a bug while playing Portal 2 Test Chambers Editor.


When you have Pivot Cube on another cube and you remove the cube under Pivot Cube while it's powered by laser it stays frozen in air. It updates after unpowering laser or touching cube.

Another thing is that, laser automatically connect to nearest laser catcher. Even if it isn't at same height level.


// EDIT.

Here you can test it :


That's what I've achived. Wanted to leave it as mini game but it was laggy as hell probably due to many lasers in chamber ...


// ANOTHER BUG at menu. Got it randomly after leaving Test Chamber editor.

I've got an issue since I downloaded the Perpetual Testing Initiative. Almost instantly when a map loads, items and objects "break". You see like black triangular holes appear in items such as companion cubes, buttons, doors, stairs, even the portal gun in the front.

I've tried lowering texture and shading settings, but no matter what I do those holes keep appearing.

I am having issues now with this new update hurting cross-platform play. When i try to use my ps3 version and connect to my friend who is on steam we get cut off at the end of the loading screen when we are trying to boot up. I get the error "Your partner has disconnected" while she gets " Different class tables". Not sure if this is an error with the ps3 or pc side but it is beginning to turn frustrating.

Exclamation Blue Screen

While I can not account for too long prior to the most recent update. Every time I've tried to run Portal 2 since the Test chamber creation deal was released, my computer crashes or blue screens.

After the valve logo, I see the game loading then the computer crashes, sometimes I get to the menu which is considerably laggy, and it crashes again. I actually got to Cave Johnson's commercial for developing test chambers, but that too is lagged, and before it was finished, Crash.

I've verified files multiple times in a row, removed the game from steam and re-downloaded, verified, verified, removed, manually deleted files from portal 2 folder, installed, verified etc.

Every time i verify it says 1 bad file was replaced, every time.

My computer is a Windows 7 64 bit Premium build, with an AMD FX 8120 8 core processor, 16 gigs of DDR3 1600 Ram, and a Nvidia Geforce 560 GTX. I've updated the drivers for said card.

Please help.

When some maps load, you may randomly be stuck inside a dark metal box. I used impulse 100 to activate a flashlight, I have screenshots too. If you noclip out of the box you can see that it is just out to the side of the actual map.

Also, if you browse my screenshots you will see many different bugs. For example, in the first level with a
reversed funnel
the turret can freeze. I used companion cubes to mark the fact that the turret is NOT moving.

this is a link to my screenshots, the room is in the third row.
