 Incomplete installation of Portal 2 (10) NOOOOOO

#52 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -
@Tebbit: Restart Steam, it works!  I'm waiting for a buddy to finish decrypting.  -_-
#53 Posted by FengShuiGod (1478 posts) -

So Portal 2 has a store. Yeah.

#54 Posted by Diabloshadow (263 posts) -

Please guys, just for the record, use spoiler tags. Much thanks. Good luck, have portal.

After sticking at 32% for a while, decryption jumped to the end, but the servers are too busy to finalize installation.  Now I'm posting pointlessly in a thread about practically nothing.  hhnnggghhh

I am posting in this thread because I have to copy the game files to another computer, as the locked content wouldn't register properly on steam before the game got active.  So have to wait a bit more before I play it on a proper PC and not a laptop.

The people stuck on 32% you guys using 2 core CPUs or higher?

And co-op gestures cost money. Seems kinda lame. If this stuff had been extra and added after the game had launched, ok. But to have this content ready pre-launch and charge for it? Meh. I mean, I won't buy it, but it's still something that seems a little backhanded. Meanwhile, at Valve.....

Man, I wish I could digitally download it from the PSN...

#67 Posted by supermike6 (3540 posts) -

Just popped out of nowhere as done downloading. I wasn't planning on playing it until tomorrow but knowing it's right there is REALLY tempting.

#68 Edited by TheSmashing (313 posts) -

i feel mentally reinvigorated


#69 Posted by Adamsons (877 posts) -

Is anyone else getting looping sounds when they change options etc?

I thought i had a bluescreen coming or something.

#70 Posted by Tebbit (4450 posts) -

Aha, finally completing installation!

Mine too. What the eff.

Well, actually it says incomplete installation and when it tries to complete it fails at 2%. I don't want to have to re-download it again...

INVALID MEANS THE SERVERS ARE BUSY KEEP CLICKING!!!!

#73 Posted by Wes (258 posts) -

You guys seem stressed, I'm glad all I have to do is wait for the box to show up at my door. I'll worry about this PC stuff over the weekend, I'm sure everything will be smooth by then.

@KaosAngel said:

" INVALID MEANS THE SERVERS ARE BUSY KEEP CLICKING!!!! "

Yeah, I just decided to follow the link to the support page. In my experience that doesn't usually prove useful but it did in this case.

In any case that is some sage advice and I will keep clicking for about 5 minutes then I don't care.

Edit: Awesome. "Ignore the warning and keep trying" totally worked.

Wait, what's this about hats?

There is a store in Portal 2 now where you can buy hats, gesture for the robots in co-op, items, ect. Hats from TF2 carry over.

Anybody seeing big glowing error signs in game? It looks certain objects in the game are replaced with these ERROR messages and im not sure if its part of the game or not.

Nah, seems kinda gimmicky. Day one micro transactions? No thanks. I'm not paying $1.99 for a gesture called Atlas Shrugs that allows the round robot to...shrug. Maybe if this was something extra that was added in later, but day one? Meh.
#82 Posted by Bravestar (380 posts) -

My game crashes everytime the voice tells me to look up or down. :|

#83 Posted by bybeach (4732 posts) -


Yeah, I got it on my computer now, took a long time to decrypt. I'll play it starting tomorrow. With all this hype, I want to be on the up and sober side of things, had a few beers and am thinking of bed.

 

 I hope it pans out as good as the media machine is cranking out it is. well, PC Gamer anyways. I think GB has been almost but not quite been more into MK. Or at least there has been a sense of balance for these 2 attention competing games coming out the same day. I'm doing Portal 2 myself, but I kind of respect that.

#84 Posted by Skald (4367 posts) -

Sounds like fun. I'll be picking the game up tomorrow.


In the meantime, my newly replaced Kindle deserves some attention.

Clearly you haven't played TF2.
#86 Edited by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

I played it for about 10 minutes (all I planned as it is quite late) and it's great.

#87 Posted by spazmaster666 (1965 posts) -

Wish I could be playing this instead of waiting for my Amazon preorder (what can I say, $15 off is $15 off . . . :P). Oh well, I won't have much time the next couple days to play it anyway so I'm not too disappointed.

#88 Posted by warxsnake (2639 posts) -

5$ for a simple reskin texture for the robot characters, lmao.. what am I doing working at Ubisoft...

#89 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

Just did the first few co-op stages with a friend.  It's so much fun, going to prep for class and then play again after work tomorrow.  

Peace out bitches.  

TF2 HATS IN PORTAL 2!

#90 Posted by Dalai (7002 posts) -

Everything was going so great. The first chapter was classic... then I discovered there are TF2 hats in Portal 2. Now I have a robot that wears a Pyro beanie and I don't know what the fuck to think now.

PLAY MORE TEAM FORTRESS 2 AND UNLOCK MORE HATS!

Hats > DLC, Fact!
#92 Posted by DukeTogo (1504 posts) -

Another 5 hour game for $50, I'll pass and wait til Valve gives it away like the first one.

I've probably put more hours into TF2 than any other game ever. And yeah, the hats are gimmicky. But they were added in after the fact. That's what annoys me about Portal 2. Gestures that the robots should kinda have anyways now cost $2 even though they were made before the game launched. If there are random drops somehow it will be less annoying, but still.

I totally agree about the gestures, but I feel the rage on the SPUF against the hats is in no way warranted or justifiable.

Welp, I played up until the part where the facility is fully operational. I really like the laser puzzles.

Have you seen? Portal 2 on the PC has a 3.8 rating based on user 66 ratings. WTF? I told you a month ago that User scores' didn't mean anything but no-one believed me.
