I can't start the game

Hello.

I downloaded the new ZIP because i can't playing. I couldn't start the game because I clicked in "new game" but it didn't run. I reinstalled the games again and I putted the Portal prelude from de zip to steam's sourcemods folder, but I still have the same problem. How I can fix it? sad

Re: I can't start the game

How can a friend borrow you his copy of Portal?
He gave you the login/password to his Steam account?

Most likely.

Which, if that's the case, then that shouldn't be the problem.  What exactly happens when you click New Game?  Does it just crash, or does it give you any error code?

Also, If you can't get anything to work, go to Options, Keyboard, Advanced, toggle Developer Console, click ok, exit out of options, press ` or ~ on your keyboard. Then type

Code:

map level_01

(please correct me if this is not the correct code for the starting chamber, as i am pretty sure that testchmb_a_01 is for normal Portal)
After typing the code then clicking enter, you should start out at the first level, where I suggest you save as soon as you get out of the pod.

No of course.
But if it isn't, we're talking about piracy, and we're not helping pirates here.
That's why I'm indirectly asking if he owns the game or not.

Re: I can't start the game

Yes, he gave me his steam account and his pack game, but the steam account isn't the problem. When I click in New Game, the game screen dissapears and  I have an high lag in my computer, so I'll try play when I buy other pack with Portal or download the game in steam if it can. Probably my game have a problem that i don't know with the installation or a folder corrupted. I'm bad with technology hmm

Thanks for everything, to all.
