    I could probably guess how he did it, what i don't fully understand is how he got that cool bubble rendering effect.

    Fisheye lens distortion would be pretty simple, is it possible he just ported the hl1 map into hl2? It would be a lot easier to make that fisheye lens effect, or even just make it a texture on the bubble. It looks pretty cool, though.

    It almost looks like he's just rendering the cubemaps of the target area.

    Then the only way to test it is to place an object in front of the portal and see if it renders through the other one.
