Different Portal Textures
I used to have Portal on the XBox 360 then it got deleted for some reason so I bought it on steam but I noticed the portals and portal gun don't look as well portalish and complex as they did in the 360 version and Portal 2 I don't know if this is usual or if I can change it if I can change them to look like they did in portal 2 please let me know

Im trying to figure this out to.Portal used to look alot better before the conversion.Now for some reason it only uses dx level 8 in grafix options.Before default was everything maxed,now its a mixture of settings and it chooses bilinear textures now wich look awful.

It was the steampipe conversion, not all of the textures made it for some reason.

go to video settings and if your pc build can support it, turn anti-aliasing all the way up, put models and textures and shadowing to high, and very high where applicable. basically crank up the video settings, turn the resolution up all the way and fit the aspect ratio to your screen, it doesnt take an incredible build to run this game at max settings but it requires something pretty decent. if you have video lag just play with video settings until your performance to graphic ratio is to your liking.

mat_dxlevel 90 or mat_dxlevel 95 should fix this

The problem is.. the game is using directx 8 by default.. that leave us with the horrible portal texture

you can force Directx 9 with -dxlevel 90 or -dxlevel 95 on the "Launch options" of Portal
Alternative.. you can open the console at the menu of the game and type "mat_dxlevel 90" or "mat_dxlevel 95"
