I would like a copy of some of the safety signs/posters within Portal. Are they available within the Portal 2 folder somewhere?

Example poster: "Know your paradoxes! In the event of a rogue AI ..."

  • Unfortunately, the Portal 2 engine uses a different version of their texture format, so you won't be able to open them for the forseeable future, until the tools are updated.

While Arda Xi's comment seems to imply that you won't be able to grab them from the game folder, this guy on Reddit and this guy have been uploading hi-res images of the posters somehow(perhaps recreating them themselves?), so if you want them, here are a few:

Paradoxes Accidents Hurt Future You

Also, if you're interested in buying prints of the posters, Valve is selling them in the Valve store: here are the underground posters, the 1940s posters, and the "My boss is a robot".

    The post accompanying those files include an Illustrator source file. In other words, he has been recreating them himself. Pretty impressive, to be honest.

  • By the way, two of those posters were made by BHCS, not the guy you linked.

  • @Arda Strange, could have sworn I saw him post the other two as well. Thanks for the tip.

Turns out I was wrong. Someone uploaded all of the posters to their imgur account. Here's the link: http://rancidmilkman.imgur.com/all/

  • Awesome, thanks. There are plenty of here but the images in the accepted solution are higher res.

    @Haphazard That's because the ones in the accepted solution have been recreated in vector. As such, they're not completely true to the original (although they're pretty damn close). The ones I linked were pulled directly from the game.

Someone has posted most, if not all, of the Portal 2 posters here: https://i.stack.imgur.com/srb9I.jpg
