[SP] Portal Stories Mel: Past Power 1.6 01/30/12 2,675 Download
 Hello everyone,

We're very pleased to be able to share a demo level for Portal Stories: Mel!
This demo will show some of the content we have created so far this includes:
- One level to play
- Custom loading screens
- Custom main menu

This demo is around 70mb in size, so if you're reading this description before you downloaded the map, start downloading the map and return here ;)

The Level included is called "Past Power". It's a level that takes place in a cave far underneath the modern apperture and features various gels and flings.
Difficulty : Medium
Size : Medium

Past Power has the difficulty and number we are aiming for in Portal Stories.

[bigspoiler=installation instructions]To install this map:
- Browse to your Steam\steamapps folder and check if you have a \sourcemods folder there. If you don't, create one.
- Unzip the file to your Steam\steamapps\sourcemods folder.
(When you did this you should have a portal_stories_demo folder in sourcemods. In this folder there should be various maps like cfg, maps and materials. If this folder has another portal_stories_demo in it instead of the other folders, cut the content from the portal_stories_demo/portal_stories_demo and place them in the steam/steamapps/sourcemods/portal_stories_demo folder.)
- If you want to use your normal portal 2 settings: copy from stteam/steamapps/common/portal 2/portal2/cfg the config.cfg and videodefaults.txt files and copy them to your Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\portal_stories_demo\cfg folder.
- You should now have Portal Stories Demo on steam!
- Launch the game and enjoy![/bigspoiler]

Upgrade instructions:
Remove your steam/steamapps/sourcemods/portal_stories_demo and follow the installation instructions.
We really hope you enjoy this map!
