Portal 2 – Co-Op Launcher

4-30-11: Initial Release.

Since the release of Portal 2, there has been a lot of good work being done in the community. With so many gamers playing Portal 2 in LAN networks across the Internet, it is no surprise that several people have started work on their own special co-op launchers to make life easier instead of typing cumbersome commands through the console.

Dekart8111 made a special launcher of his own (see above screenshot) that he developed that is released as CS.RIN.RU. How it works is pretty simple. If you are the client, type in the ip of the host and click connect. If you are the host, then select the map in question and just host it after the client is connecting to you.

Pretty simple stuff.

To download the client, and read more about how to use it, see the link below:

Portal 2 – Huge Tunngle LAN Community

Portal 2 Tunngle Networks
4-22-11: Initial release.
4-23-11: Updated screenshot. 1079 users! Added video tutorial.

Hey guys, so I just got my copy of Portal 2 yesterday, and I must say that it is simply the best Valve game I have played in a long time period. Granted, there are tons of reviews about this game online already, so I am not going to bother talking about the game, because if you are a gamer, you already know what this game is about.

Anyway, in the screenshot above, you can clearly see that Portal 2 is hot. It is so hot that technically 9 networks are filled with lots of people. In fact, there are 895 players at the time I took that screenshot today!

This goes to show that the gamers have spoken. We need our LAN, and LAN will prevail in the age when game companies are trying to take that away from us!

Have you played portal 2 yet? If so, let us know what you think!
