Chell's hands
Hello,

I've seen videos for Portal games and mods (such as Conversion and the Source showcase on Valve's website) where you can see Chell's hands holding the portal gun. Does anyone know if or how I can trigger this ingame? If you know and can reply, please do! I would appreciate it!

Thanks,

Try exploiting some of the known portal glitches. On certain surfaces, it is possible to overlap part of both portals. Then when you step halfway thru the middle Chell's hands will appear.

(Psst: This is how I achieved this effect for my artwork for this game. Note: If you haven't played HL2, the quote won't any make sense...☺ )

BTW, making use of the known glitches is the only way to earn the Aperture Science Gold Medal achievement. Definitely useful to know ahead of time...

I don't know what method these mods used, but with the content availble in the game it's not possible to do it. You would need to start a mod.

Source Engine games use two models for the player:
World_model: this the body you see through the portals, and the body of your partner in co-op.
View_model: this is the hands and the portal gun you see from the first person perspective.

I'm no expert, but if you go with the world model you wold have to get rid of the view model, maybe you'll need a bit of programming skills, and a little of 3D modeling/animation.
If you choose the view model, you may need to combine (re-do?) both models and re-animate it to suit your needs. Either way, a LOT of work if you are new to Source modding.

If you don't know what a World/View model is, you are in no condition to make any of this.

You're on the right track... ☺

When she uses the portal gun, it's missing textures and the arm in the first person is simular to bugbait's view model
