Glad I tried this one again. The first few times, I tried flinging and kept landing in the goo. Then I tried ninja jumping. Goo time again. I gave up. Then I read fumblus's comments. So I reloaded and tried again. This time the first fling worked.

@Jotta: You made the last part a bit harder than it needed to be, but you had the intended solution. :)

At the end you can just bring the cube back to the laser side using the portals you already have in place, there's no need to carry it around the fizzler. You also don't have to do that final fling through a portal with a laser going through it--you can just shoot a portal from across the acid to get the laser.

Congrats on solving it.

@fumblus: I'll try rebuilding the test; hopefully that will fix things; thanks for pointing that out. Glad you were able to play it in the end!

I've solved this map two different ways. The second way was the intended and most obvious solution: a couple of flings through angled portal surfaces. An elegant puzzle. The first way took a long time to work out, and was made necessary by some sort of bug in Portal or in your map that prevented me from flinging through the portal surfaces on the floor. It just wouldn't work for some reason, and I'm guessing that at least some of the people who play this map will be frustrated by it. The solution involved placing a portal at the extreme right of the lightbridge surface, walking up the lightbridge on the extreme right of the surface opposite the first faithplate, then a ninja jump to that second level. Similar gameplay, except the surface behind the fizzler deactivated by the laser is unnecessary.

A couple of restarts were necessary to get the physics working right again.

Oops. :) Fixed, thanks.

It's a beautiful test with a hiccup. Only on my second run I found out what the second faith plate and angled panel are for. First I walked on the ledge of the fizzler to shoot the portal on the panel. That couldn't be intended so I played it a second time. Probably not easy to fix.
