Description

Portal is a new single player game from Valve. Set in the mysterious Aperture Science Laboratories, Portal has been called one of the most innovative new games on the horizon and will offer gamers hours of unique gameplay.

The game is designed to change the way players approach, manipulate, and surmise the possibilities in a given environment; similar to how Half-Life 2's Gravity Gun innovated new ways to leverage an object in any given situation.

Players must solve physical puzzles and challenges by opening portals to maneuvering objects, and themselves, through space.

Additional Comments

I used a steam-free installer in a 64-bit WINEPREFIX.

I have directplay installed via winetricks, but that should make no difference. (I installed it for another game.)

HOWTO

Installing Portal

  • Install wine-1.0.0 or later. Older versions have a number of bugs that cause game to crash in some places.
  • Install and configure Steam
  • Installing Portal from Steam should work as-is without any problems.

Playing Portal

  • Disable / remove beryl / compiz. Wine does not work with them
  • Disable / Steam Community In-Game. All games will crash with it enabled.
  • Add "-dxlevel 80" command line option to the Portal game, or start with following command (adjust options as required)
    wine steam -silent -applaunch 400 -window -novid -dxlevel 80 -width 1024 -height 768
    

Note, the above options can also be added from within Steam by right-clicking the game, choosing 'Properties' and choosing 'Set launch options...'. Obviously, there is no need for the '-applaunch 400' option when changing options in this way.

Some people reported setting hl2.exe to win98 in winecfg fixes any other crashes. Most of these crashes are fixed in wine-0.9.49 or newer
