Chamber 18 of 19
Hey guys, almost done with Portal. However, I am stuck trying to figure out where to place my portals so that I can get up to the ledge. I know that by going straight across you run into the catwalk area that is all rusted out and you have to crouch to get in there so I am assuming it is another Rat-Man area? Not too sure. Anyway, to the right of the catwalk area is another ledge and on top of it is a camera (hello GLaDOS!), but I can't find a way to get to that ledge to advance. Any ideas?

How do I do that? Sorry, this is my first time EVER playing Portal.

I am stuck in the same place, it's the ledges you have to continually fall upward and shoot new portals to keep going up. Just can't do it.

I am glad to hear I am not the only one who is having a tough time. :)

Read the Wiki on this. It's not that hard:

You mean the different platforms that go up inside that tower? There are many videos on how to do this. But, suffice it to say, just alternate between entry and exit portals as you fly upward, all the while keeping away from directional keys (until you know what you are doing), which may cause you to arc over and become misaligned with the new entry portal (or miss the platform entirely!) on the way down. That was what tripped me up in the beginning.

Later on, it will become second-nature to you once you begin to attempt the Advanced Maps (and, ESPECIALLY, the Challenge Maps.....whew!)

Advanced test chamber 18 is inhuman.

The problem with a lot of the challenge maps is that I know HOW to do them...I just can't execute!

Nine hours is pretty long - longer than it took for me to finish the Portal 2 single player, and I'm not a great player.

Thanks, I got past that (and Chamber 19 as well). Now I am just trying to cautiously make my way out-not that it is going to really be an exit it looks like-and not be ambushed by turrets and the like. This game makes me jump. D; But it is so much fun! <3
