Default Portal UPDATE

Advertisement

Breaking news!!!

Portal just had an update that changes all of the radios in the game to include a red light. The radios are now meant to be picked up and moved to a specific location on the map when the light turns green. At this point, the radio will play a series of beeps in Morse code. There are 26 of them, and a new achievement has been added to incorporate them.

Something else that strikes people as odd in this update. When those radios are taken past the blue fields that vaporize everything except for you and the portal gun, this sound plays: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt3uog2tKAQ

ALSO, it seems they've added a series of files named something along the lines of DINO.cfg, which has been encoded into png files that display seemingly encrypted images.

Pretty interesting.

That update sure did surprise me.
But I doubt I will play it again any time soon, maybe later on.

The interwebs are on fire trying to figure out what all of this shenanery means. GDC is coming up soon...maybe Valve is planning on showing something there. E3 isn't too far off, either.

People are actually speculating that, or episode 3.

Here's an interesting image that was posted on HL2.net.

Ooh wow! They actually colored in the ASCII art. If I remember correctly, that's what was extracted from the BBC number they decoded from those DINO pictures. I did that myself, it really is a phone number, and apparently its an area code from Seattle. CRAZY stuff!

ANOTHER UPDATE TODAY! The update only says "Added valuable asset retrieval." It looks like they updated the ending of portal.
