Portal Gun in the Stanley Parable
Alright, so some people may have seen the video about the portal gun in the Stanley Parable. I believe that you can easily do this yourself if you just port the files from the Stanley Parable over to Portal 2's files. I have tried this myself and everything seems to work just like in the actual game of the Stanley Parable (with a Portal Gun) but something isn't right; The soundscape and the .vcd scenes don't seem to work, preventing the narrator from speaking. Any ideas why the .vcd scenes from the stanley parable don't work?

I confess I don't know the answer. I do, however, know some of the reasons. The devs of Stanley Parable altered some of the game files (server.dll, for instance). They also encrypted some of the maps and sound files. So you can get bits of the game to sort-of work in Portal 2, but I've yet to see a report from anyone who got it to work properly.

Note that the video on YouTube is very heavily edited. I suspect that in real life, it crashed every 30 seconds.

Reminds me when I tried to play Half Life 2 in Portal years ago:

Granted, i was able to play at LEAST up until the Canals_03 level, but it crashed going into the next level.
Trying to use the map command to play later levels, i would random fall through the ground and get stuck (so much i had to bind noclip), or the game would crash in random spots.

I'm sure the same thing will happen if you try to move the Stanley Parable files to Portal 2.
But hell, I'll give it a try anyway, just because. :D

I only have 4 hours and 6 minutes to go, to get the achievement.
As long as the power doesn't go out, i'll get it.
