Chamber 18, too much drift in movements
okay so this chamber is ruining the game for me at the moment. I even resorted to watching youtube clips on how to do the thing, which REALLY didnt want to do.

the dumb thing is they do it exactly like i thought you would have to do it. only thing is when they do it THERE IS NO DRIFTING AROUND.

whenever i see a youtube video of somebody doing this chamber they go into the hole and are perfectly aligned to it when they come out, so there is no motion other than straight up and down. even if they do not go into the hole like that.

If i try and do it im drifting all over the place and theres no way i can place the next portal and then be able to make myself move back to get into the portal again with the amount of drift thats happening.

how the hell am i supposed to do this? if there was no drift like i see all these other people doing it then this wouldnt even be hard.

I'm kinda wondering the same thing. I've stopped the game at the same point waiting to get some patience back. If you're using a controller make sure you have a deadzone properly set. If you're using a mouse to orient then I think its a matter of finding just the right angle to enter the portal so you are lined up closely to where you need to be for the exit. Rinse and repeat, but don't do too much bouncing which will cause resistance to build up.

Check your options, and make sure "Portal Funnel" is ENABLED.

That will make you go straight up and down, as long as you DON'T press any movement keys.
