How to reskin a portal gun?
I've seen people on videos who have different looking portal guns. They're blue or red, not white. I tried to reskin it but I can't find my "portal" folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\darkcloud0299. I have The Orange Box, and I already beat portal. Where is the folder?

They updated the game to steampipe, so you can't reskin the files changed places.

Yes you can. I've tried reskinning and it worked once, but I tried another skin and that didn't work, so I put back the old reskinned files and the portal gun skin won't show up anymore

Actually, I figured it out. you put the skinfiles into X:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Portal\portal\custom\ (if it's not there, make it)

I put the portal gun skin files into the new folder I created C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\common\Portal\portal\custom
And It's still not working

make sure you don't have a 64bit machine. If you do, it has to be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\portal\portal\custom\. also make sure if the folders are "materials" and "models" and the like, then create a folder in "Custom" named "portal" and put them in there.
