how to play portal in third person

hey guys

if you type in sv_cheats 1 in the developers console, and then thirdperson or thirdpersonshoulder, you can play the entire game in third person, and control the cameras position with these commands:

c_thirdpersonshoulder 1
c_thirdpersonshoulderdist 20
c_thirdpersonshoulderaimdist 120.0
c_thirdpersonshoulderdist 20
c_thirdpersonshoulderheight 15
c_thirdpersonshoulderoffset 20.0

only problem is i cant seem to get the crosshair working. i simply drew a dot on my monitor with a sharpie, but any help about that is welcomed.

This stuff has been around since GoldSRC, but good to post for the new folks.

Not sure about over the shoulder third person, but normal third person has been since GoldSrc.

Bigger info: Thirdpersonshoulder, from what I've heard (can't personally verify right now), works with sv_cheats 0.

Did you really write on your computer monitor with a sharpie?

overtheshoulder is brand new. every other game before this has only had thirdperson and firstperson.

oboewan42: i can verify that you need sv_cheats 1 to be set in order to go into thirdperson mode.

I do it with temporary marker pen with 3rd person shoulder, and just rub it off with a small damp tissue.
