Well, sorry for that - but that was by design, so there were other things, you had to archive, that had to be activated and the speed gel was a sideline. So it was activated in time like planned. Maybe a weird thinking, but I've seen worse.
Congratulations in getting through this test!

I did it, but I still don't get how to activate the speed gel flow on the portalable surfaces X) Just tried random things...

Uh, was this a compliment or a rebuke, to bring more light into my levels?
Playing D00M and such, would tell you from the start to use your best settings - and what's not black shall not be black and be viewable to get forward in levels. So it's my standard and I never thought on them beeing to dark, while building up my levels. Don't you agree, chambers with steel walls are shiny and quite bright, while portalable walls are dull and swallow the light? That's what I built on until now. At least I learned to lighten up areas, where are puzzle elements. And back to that ninja-gap: a ninja fights best at night and without light ;)
Now you seem to be prepared! Have fun - for Science.

I didn't try Ninja Mode in Back from Infinity because it was too dark to see the gap in front of the button. I have since learned to set my gamma correction to maximum brightness when playing your levels.

Oh you're right, that wasn't necessary ... now I've repainted this missing wall, thank you!
I'm curious, how long you will need to find out the intended way, by just using the title.
And how you fly through my levels ... I wonder why you haven't jumped the just one and only, tiny gap and played the 'ninja way' of my "Back from Infinity" yet! ^_^ It has been alteret yet again, anyway - so you may have now a whole different experience behind the crushers.

That definitely fixes the shortcut. Although now you can get stuck in the lower level in that room if you forget to hit the button or don't get through the door in time.

I'm still not sure I did it correctly. I used the botton on the bottom floor, then went up the stairs, used the faith plate to get up where the reflection cube drops, then dropped down and quickly shot a portal to the far wall before the fizzler went back up and the turrets killed me. Then I left a portal by the exit and went back to the other side. I moved the first portal as close to the bounce gel as I could, then used a combination of the speed gel and bounce gel to drop the cube through to the exit area, which took about 20 tries.

That worked, and required all elements of the puzzle, but it still feels like a hack.

Omg!!! Do you know the feeling, if you make a little update and it turns out, you dug a big hole through the entire level? Thank you for pointing it out - it's now fixed (again). Sadly I had to kill the portals in the first row before. If you now find another shortcut, I think I have to kill them all.
Thank you, if you try this level now again - reloaded. For science!
Ps: added your angeled gel level to my queue

There's a lot going on in here. I got all the way to activating the blue gel before I found the shortcut. You can portal into the side room, on the right behind the laser field, from almost anywhere. Once you get the cube up the stairs you can use a portal surface under the orange gel to get into that room, and then into the exit area. This bypasses almost the entire puzzle. You could probably just remove some portal surfaces in that room to negate this.

Also, you can get stuck in one of the pits with no portal surface, and the only way out is to kill yourself or reload.

I meant, I had to jump forward to get the portal shoot on that place - now I thought, the laser gate would stop you from that jump. A forcefield can't be set there because of the way the map works.

lasers don't stop you from shooting portals, only those force fields do........
