Portal 2 PC Low Resolution Textures Fix

 Portal 2
This is just a tweak i found on the steam forums that seems to fix the blurry low res textures on the PC version of Portal 2 even if you have the highest settings applied.  You need to enable the developer console in order to type in this command.

mat_picmip -1

once you type that in to the console you will get results like this.

Great stuff, I was wondering why I had blurry textures, I felt a bit disappointed when I saw the first bit of the game but I couldn't quite believe it was right as my graphic settings were set quite high. (I had played it earlier on a friends pc and it looked stunning).

I'm guessing this is something that Valve will get around to fixing at some point?

@Howard Yeah Valve is pretty good at squashing bugs for their own games. I'd be surprised if they didn't patch the fix.

Ok it doesn't work for me, still blurred textures.
