Anybody else manage to get to the end with the yellow gun?
Because I just did, very obviously skipping the red gun, and I was wondering if I was supposed to have been able to.

It is possible, although unintended, to finish every puzzle in the game with only the yellow gun.

I didn't finish every puzzle, I was just wandering around and happened to work my way into the end room and complete all the stuff in there. I still don't know what the red upgrade's supposed to do, so I was just wondering if that should've been able to happen. Thanks!

I functionally did that - my mouse doesn't have a wheel/middle button - it just assumes hitting the left and right buttons at the same time was the equivalent. So, I had the yellow funtionality, but not the red (since my left and right mouse buttons were already pressed to do middle, I couldn't press either to use the Red powers). Didn't really miss it, except for the red gun intro puzzle, which required it. Haven't seen anything else that specifically required the red powers.

I don´t know if you HAVE to get the red gun to solve all puzzles. Most of them should be able to manage with the yellow gun, but I think you are supposed to first get the red gun before you play the "End-levels" , because all blocks in those chambers are red ...

BTW you can also use the Ctrl key instead of hitting the left and right mouse button at the same time ...

I think you are both right and wrong.

You're right :)

I doubt you're intended to solve any of the following rooms with yellow gun (because in doing so, it doesn't link the two rooms together on the map):
Being An Entrepreneur, Connecting The Pieces (right side exit on map), Four Different Exits (left side exit on map), Impossible Paths (right side exit on map), Laying The Foundation (up and down exits on map), A Loop That Won't Close (left side exit on map), A Book And It's Cover (up exit on map), and I Can Do Anything.

I can confirm that I've solved every puzzle with the yellow gun only, via a save file I have backed up. One sign is missing because the trigger for this sign to load into the save file is when you pick up the red gun. The map looks awfully weird and disconnected in some areas (all the ones I listed above), and the room I Can Do Anything doesn't even appear because the trigger for it to appear on the map is, again, picking up the red gun. The proof that I have completed this room, however, is because I have obtained sign #23 ("The further we get, the less help we need." )

If it was intended to be able to complete the puzzles with the yellow gun, then they would link up and complete the map nicely as it does when you obtain the red gun.

It's possible to finish the game with the green gun.

Proof? Lies?
If it's possible I want to see it :D

Woah! If you managed to do this, share please!

I'll try an record a video of it soon.

Exedra, every speedrunner uses this tactic already. It is part of the Any% category. Every linked video under the Any% section on the Antichamber speedrunning leaderboards[bombch.us] does this. (Any% Lagless however does not use this, as we call the glitch used "lag glitch")

How it is done:
It is impossible to actually do any of the three puzzles in The Escape with the green gun because they all require at least the abilities of the yellow gun, so us speedrunners were looking for a way to get at least one cube into The Chase/The Escape for quite a while so that we could skip all of the puzzles in The Escape (you can just place a cube in the slot to your right when you first enter The Escape). Because of this, we were trying every possible method to get through the disintegrator field that is right behind the door marked "The End" at A Jump Too Far. What we found was that if the game lags, it skips frames and tries to correct your position accordingly (essntially allowing you to walk at the same speed at 30 fps vs 60 fps even though 30 fps would be lagging). We can use this to our advantage if we can consistently create lag. Eventually we figured out that making a large wireframe cube causes just enough lag to skip enough frames to get through this field. This was very machine-dependent though, it could cause more or less lag depending on how powerful your computer is and we didn't really like this method so we kept searching for another one. Apparenlty when the game is in fullscreen and you alt-tab out of and back into the game though, it causes lag while it tries to re-render what was previously filling the screen. We are now using this method to get through the field and keep cubes throughout The Chase and The Escape.

Yeah I know, I've been practicing my speedrunning lately. Only new to it, so I've only gotten it down to 3:38.78, which at least beats two people on the leaderboard. Also, the leaderboard has 25 written instead of 26.

Thanks, I've fixed it now.

If you'd like to add your time to the leaderboards, add me and msg me your email so I can give you editing permissions.

Do we have to have proof of the run, like in video format?
