Portal physics/collision glitch (56k may have issues)
 
This was happening the other day. Haven't played it since, but will try it a little later to see if it's still doing it. Basically, objects were falling through floor, or "floating" around on the floor, etc.

Ahh, thanks for the input. It's sorta funny, but it can get on your nerves because you're trying to beat a level, and your objects disappear. :)

It's you man! You're so good teh game runs from you. :D

I had no problem with it in Portal, I have seen the issue off and on in other games though. Very annoying after the initial "HuH?!"

LoL, some companion eh? :D

Any other source based titles do this to you? I'm wondering about drivers, third party app settings etc.

EDIT: Is it constant? Always repeatable?

Loaded a level, and the helpful companion cube was stuck in the drop tube in the wall, so I had to reload a previous save. Not sure how often it is repeatable. :)

All I could suggest would be trying it at default graphics, or different drivers and see if it still happens. That would be very frustrating.

Reportedly it's something to do with multi-core CPUs, however, Valve needs to hurry up and released the promised multi-core patch. :p

How about setting affinity whilst playing? Might be worth a try just to verify that's the problem.

I shouldn't have to for a game that came out in 2007. :p ;)
