Stuck In Chamber 18 of chapter one
Yeah, portal one is getting on my nerves <_<
I feel like I have the answer, but I can't seem to get past the first solution!
I've killed all the turrets
I can't get the energy orb to the activation switch that lasts only 2 seconds :/
I'll post a link to a screenshot of what I'm stuck on if needed.

After you've killed the turrets, make a portal for the energy orb and send it on its way over to the receiver. While it's on its way over, portal up to the button and quickly push the button. Taadaa! A recieved energy orb

Yeah, my problem is getting the timing down just right I suppose.
I had a feeling that was it >_< ' the timing is just so dang hard! T-T
Although, I got to admit something interesting
I wonder what a 'humanised' turret would look like .... (yeah I have a weird imagination XD)

The enrichment center regrets to inform you that this next test is impossible. No, if you really do not get it by your own, watch a video or add me. :P

I found a video, and it was less complicated than I originally thought.(My aproach was much too 'straight forward" again.... =_=)
It turns out I was too busy being a "left brainer" rather than a "right brainer" I'm not good at thinking from both sides.
Now I'm stuck at that turret where you press the button to activate it, I guess I'm getting close to the end of chapter one, it's likely a few rooms before the final boss.

Watch from 1:40 - 1:55. Easy as cake. :)

thanks :) It seemed so obvious as soon as I watched that. Now to get out of chamber 19.. I just managed not to fall to my firey doom :D

I dont get how can someone get stuck at chamber 18, i've beaten it many times without help from youtube (on Portal: Still Alive).

Same here. Having trouble getting up onto the pedestal to click the button. Can't seem to land up there for some reason no matter what I try. Forget the timing - I can't simply click the button. I've tried jumping every way I know how and can't seem to end up where I can push the button - keep falling off. Even tried launching myself off the cliff onto that pedestal I just keep bouncing off. Was having a lot of fun up to this point and hate to see it end this way.

Don't give up.

There's (obviously) a reason for that panel just above and in front of the pedestal (hint: you use it to create a portal to jump thru.....) But, yeah, timing is everthing on that move....
