activate function Optimize GLSL shaders
Use fake gpu info
Template: tegra 4
Simple mapbuffer emulation
Software VBO emulation
Use packed stencil buffer
With these settings and connected moga controller i was able to run game and play it. Its playable but sometimes its get laggy on in bigger arenas. I also get crash bug on the end of first part - after the first elevator part the game hang on a loading screen. Its always crash but it has solution - just start HL2 again, start new game and chose second part, it will be already avaliable and you can continue in playing Enjoy!! For now i have something about 1hour of playing and still no problem. Only thing is sometimes weird textures, but this is done by emulating T4.
And now question on you all - i wonder if its possible to hack google play, that i can see and buy portal too?? I want to try it. I thing Portal will be playable too with these settings.
Ok mate I'm attempting to use your settings to get Portal running on my T-Mo SIII, well see what happens...downloading obb data.
also since I didn't see anyone else give you a reply to your play store question, you should be able to use Lucky Patcher to compile a modded Google Play apk. Just download Lucky Patcher (it will auto update if need be), look on the bottom where it says "toolbox" and open "Create modded Play Store apk" then click "Test modded play store apk"
Still cant get it running, seeing some pretty hefty artifacts. I have GLTools loaded, with these settings:
Portal-Enabled custom settings
Optimize GLSL Shaders
Use Fake GPU info set to T4
Simple Mapbuffer emu ON
Software VBO ON
packed stencil buffer ON
Half Float texture adreno hack (tried On and OFF)
Decode sRGB (Tried ON and OFF)
