Description
A prime example of thinking without portals. Actually you do use portals extensively it's just not a ninja type puzzle. Also, you cannot forget where they're needed or you'll be retracing your steps.

That's great. You don't know how this bothered me. I'm glad you made it. Now I don't have to delete this map. It has been abandoned by the editor and won't be changed so thanks for the update.

Finished it! Very nice! I guess the thing that changed in the last 6+ months is my ability to judge when to jump. I still don't understand how I made it looking straight up the first time after 20+ attempts the normal way. Weird!

OK, it was a fluke and my fault. I just did it going back while looking forward but I jumped well after it seemed like I should have. I guess that was the "trick".
Sorry about all that.

Holy crap! I just tried it again, looking almost straight up while running (making it very hard to know when to jump), and it worked the first time. I don't know if its the upward acceleration or what. It even seemed like I had traveled less horizontal distance visually. I thought I had only made it halfway across but I was standing on the other side. Might have been a fluke, hopefully not. I'll have to do it at least twice more to get back so we'll see if I can do it again. Have you ever heard of this "trick"?

Thanks buckfuts.

I really hate to use noclip, if I can't accomplish it I usually just move on to the next puzzle. I would try on this one but I get the impression that I will have to "jump" multiple times, which would kind of ruin it for me.
I will try to minimize the stuff running on my computer and see if that works. Like I said, I haven't played in months and something might have changed.
I appreciate your help and, if my plan doesn't work, I will probably say hi to you on one of your other levels.

I have had a problem similar to what you describe in the past. It was in a map that had so many items my comp. lagged a little during gameplay and I was unable to make the simplest moves. The jump you are having trouble with is not an integral part of the puzzle. If I encountered that in a game (not recommending this at all) I would noclip past it and continue with the game. No harm done. i wasn't breaking the game just facillitating the play. Sorry you encountered this in one of mine. I will remember not to use this again in another one.

I went back and realized that it was only one panel (4 small tiles) wide yet, even looking up, I still can't make it, no matter how far I try to run before jumping (not sure if that helps either).
I can't imagine that my computer itself won't let me jump over one panel just in this puzzle. Any other ideas?
BTW I do continue to push W while in the air, I know that helps most of the time.

Also I just tried the jump again for myself and I realised that I instinctively look up as I'm jumping. When I don't, I fall in. Don't know why that is but it is. Hope I helped.

By the way Thanks for exploring some of my oldies but goodies.
