I'm doing my first race in the GYS tournament tomorrow and I didn't think about my load times... I get some pretty stupid load times on a few chambers, most notably 19 and e02. ESPECIALLY e02. I'll easily lose ~30 seconds loading e02 in RTA.

Is there a way to reduce load times besides buying an SSD? Any special console commands that I don't know about?

I've tried to do it myself but failed horribly.

I figured this would be easy since Source Unpack and the ghosting mod are both source mods. I tried changing the gameinfo.txt to be like Source Unpacks(hoping that then it would open it as portal and not hl2) but that didn't work. Then I tried copying PackScience's gameinfo.txt from Portal Elevators just to see what would happen, and then it started crashing.

I don't have any idea what I'm doing. Is there a place I can go to learn how to do this stuff? Or does somebody want to tell me how to do it? (I'd rather learn it but both a solution and resources to learn about it would be nice :D )

If the ghost mod on Portal is impossible, how can I get just the timer onto Portal?

I get very impatient waiting for the beginning every time I start a run. I just want to make sure its okay before I start doing it

I'm looking for a program that is free(I have $20 to my name right now and I'm not about to blow it on Adobe Premiere), and all I really need it to do is trim the video and add text. And maybe have that text fade in and out... :P I often find myself wanting to add small notes to my runs(since I prefer not to talk during my runs) but there isn't any free programs out there that I could find that will allow me to do something like that.

Title I have confirmed that it happens consistently and it's pissing me off. Please help. It's ruined 2 PB's already :(

This pack's biggest appeal is that it is very fast. I fell like adding a "vault save" type thing like normal Portal has will make it even faster. It will make it so much easier to restart runs.

The time that it takes for Chell to get out of the bed thingy is almost ten seconds. That is ten seconds we could use to already be done with chamber 00. I think we should have a save that loads the game just a few seconds before the crosshairs appear.

We don't time the time that it takes for Chell to get out of the bed, so I don't think there is a reason not to have one.

Title says all I beat my PB by ~15 seconds but it's now only ~3 seconds because I didn't see that the timer did not stop :(

As the title says, the demo recorder mod found in the resources tab is creating a file to dump the .dem files but not actually recording the .dem files. After each run, every file is empty, no .dem files.

One thing to note is that the mod appears to be running the "record" command with no arguments based on these lines the console recorded during a short test run. http://pastebin.com/sBH7Pc6A

It had worked perfectly fine until lately... I'm not sure what I did to make it stop working.
