This is what we have so far:


HL2:
- Enabling the console (Typing not yet possible)
- Bonus maps menu
- Developer Commentary
- Able to load mods
- Able to use texture packs
- Able to be converted into other source games entirely

Portal:
- Enabling the console (Typing not yet possible)
- Bonus maps menu
- Challenges
- Advanced Chambers
- Developer Commentary
- Able to load mods
- Able to use texture packs


Portal: Prelude
Introducing the mod that really needs no introduction. I don't really want to give away any spoilers, so I'll try to keep it short and to the point.

Please note that I did not make the mod, only ported it to the SHIELD. You can find the original mod at http://www.portalprelude.com/.

I would recommend having an extra 2gb of storage space available on your SHIELD's Internal Storage. The download itself is 826mb and the installation itself is even larger. Alternatively, you could download it to your External SDCard and only extract it to the portal folder, which would save you some internal storage space.

INSTALLATION:
- Download this file: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23622183712467400 (MD5: 66b202ac3fe296e062de8690b279abc2)
- Follow the guide at http://r3pwn.github.io/sourcemodding.html from "What to do?" downwards. (Use the instructions for Portal modding, obviously)
- Shoot me a PM or a Hangout telling me what you think of the port.

As for actually playing the game, I wouldn't recommend it unless you are REALLY good with Portals. It's pretty difficult. It had me mumbling profanities to myself on Test Chamber 1. If, however, you need a walkthrough, they are available at http://www.portalprelude.com/walkthrough.php.



So if you have root access and are feeling adventurous, feel free to swing on by that thread mentioned earlier and give the mods a try or help contribute to development.

For those who don't want to click the link, you can get mods and instructions on how to apply them here: http://r3pwn.github.io/sourcemodding.html

Yes and no. It would put the files where they need to go, but would not be able to change permissions. That part would need to be done manually.

Do they crash a a particular point in the game or just at random?
