Why is this lame crap on the front page? Anyone who knows how to use stencil buffers can do this easily. If you can render a mirror, you can make a portal.
zatojones - 2007-11-26
I think this is stupid, but anything that makes Shitcock gibber about stencil buffers has to be good in some very important way

STENCIL BUFFERS YAYYYYYYY

NERD AHOY CAPTAIN! SET SAIL FOR FAIL!!!

The level? Crappy. The technology? More useful than the Portal gun. The portal gun cant make them free floating in the air, or rotate at odd angles. Bitch.

That is fucking rad !! Is this guy using stencil buffers or something??! Brilliant !

Apparently I have the power to decide how videos are rated by being the first to rate them. Yay!

Can someone explain to me what the hell is going on here?
zatojones - 2007-11-26
Stencil buffers is what's goin' on, Jack!

IT'S A SIMPLE LINE PICK OPERATION, YOU BACKFACING POLYGON

Ursa_minor - 2007-11-26
Hey, i heard there were some stencil buffers in here, are there any left?
Westward - 2007-11-26
Oh stencil buffers, your lips are like velvet.
Xiphias - 2007-11-26
stencil buffers are amazing!

Also: the physics of moving through portals is built into Direct3D's stencil buffers. Strange but true!
Alfred Shitcock - 2007-11-26
The physics of moving through portals is as simple as transforming the player's movement vector from the space of one plane, into the space of the other. I would have expected a robotologist to know this.

Xiphias - 2007-11-26
yes and if you can summarize something in a sentence that means you understand it completely and it's very easy to do

Alfred Shitcock - 2007-11-26
It IS easy to do. Any freshman college computer science student could do it. And they did. Long before Portal came out. Just because you don't know how to do it doesn't mean it's not easy.

GoodAaron - 2007-11-26
I'm a bouncer. I don't need TUTORIALS to know how to transform movement vectors and utilize stencil buffers.

jihadbaby - 2007-11-26
Hey, Shitcock, will you buffer my stencil?
glasseye - 2007-11-26
Oooh stencil buffers. So hot.
yourmother - 2007-11-26
needs more stencil buffers.
Aelric - 2007-11-26
screw the video, the comments are where the entertainment is.
Feyd - 2007-11-26
This video is not very good.

BUFFER THAN A BARBARIAN STENCIL IN A PARTY OF PALADIN STENCILS.

Aubrey McFate - 2007-11-26
How can that cop get away with stencil buffering? There ought to be a law!
Fingasmcgee - 2007-11-26
Now your failing with portals
NineEleven - 2007-11-26
I would make a comment about portals (and get IPbanned again) except...whoops 8(
baleen - 2007-11-26

these pencil stuffers are really creepy
Keefu - 2007-11-27
stencil buffers

A Jumping Spider! - 2007-11-27
god damn it you guys
ABoyNamedCheese - 2007-12-02
bencil stuffers, the lot of you
Olaf the Unspeakable - 2007-12-02
I could go for a buffed stencil right about now.
fluffy - 2007-12-04
I think Portal actually uses render-to-texture, which are a much easier way to do these things anyway (and makes it a lot easier to have portals-within-portals if you're okay with each additional layer being a frame behind the last one).
Cinnamon Imperialist - 2008-01-01
Memes, huh?
FABIO2 - 2008-02-18
This video would have been sorta kinda neat in maybe 1999.


Alfred could post dog fucking videos where the dogs are dressed as Orange Box characters and you all would love it.
