Heart Chamber (remix)

A remix of "Heart Chamber" by Donderbus. This version was made with his cooperation and very much appreciated playtesting by cyhborg, whose creative ways of solving made it into this puzzle.

Difficulty: original "Heart Chamber" is challenging in my opinion, this one is probably hard

Yes, that's my cup of tea :D but I also enjoy to have easier maps in the mix!

I don't know what the first step in the video is but from my recollection of excessively playing the map, I made a cubestacking and made one fall through the fizzler while the fizzler was deactivated . I don't think that's questionable. It's certainly not for everyone, but Jonatan's descriptions always stated "A complex puzzle for hardcore Portal players."

Thank you for the recommendation, I know a couple of Greykarel's maps from when I was a Portal player rather looking for easy maps, so I skipped most of them. I will definitely check them out later! At the moment I am playing through Donderbus' workshop and only have a couple of maps left. Afterwards I had planned on playing through your workshop because of this map and the nice 3 minute map :)

Thank you for mapping!

I guess there is no backup of the database, all is gone. Some people may have a collection of old maps.

There is a video of Perplexo. Wow, already the first step is... questionable. The question is, when does something go too far. Sometimes it's hard to tell.

From these two maps I can tell what your cup of tea is. You probably already know Greykarel's maps. If not, special recommendation: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=142221391

"Perplexo" by Jonatan. Unfortunately I can't find a link since thinkingswithportals.com is down, but I still have the file on my drive. I am not sure, whether I will ever come back to playing that map again, though.
Is there a way to get hold of all the maps posted to thinkingwithportals? It really would be a
shame if they were all lost...

Well done, glad you enjoyed. I'm a bit shocked to hear how long it took to solve. To be honest, this is exactly the type of puzzle that would test my patience to the limit if I would have to solve it. So kudos to your motivation.

Which map is it that you spent more than 10 hours on?

By the way: I think this was the longest any chamber I actually solved took me. There are a couple of maps on which I spent more time, like "Seven Gates" by Jonatan, but I didn't solve them and admitted defeat at some point. However, this record could be broken in the future since there is at least one map in my playlist on which I have spent more than 10 desperate hours and which I still haven't solved. :D

In relation to my comment on another map of yours: Nice 6 hours map :)
This is a real gem, even better than the original Heart Chamber. I don't have much time now, just solved and really should have been on my way 15 minutes ago, but it has been a terrific pleasure! I cheated slightly, though: I was a little bit demotivated and then had a friend watch the youtube solution to tell me whether I was on the right track ;)
Thank you for mapping!

Thank you for answering that. I have now spent 45 minutes in the chamber without making too much progress and actually that's quite enjoyable. However, I do have an idea for what the final setup might look like. Have to quit for now, will probably be back in a couple of hours :)

That is correct. Without the light bridge it would be possible for the cube to be tilted on the button, pointing the laser upwards and perfectly hitting the laser catcher. That's the only reason.

As it was with the original Heart Chamber, I already had (remix) installed but had not played it. Now I just solved the original and took a quick look around in the (remix) and I am very much looking forward to my next portal session with this map within the next few days. However, I do have a question right at the start: I can't unravel what the lightbridges are for. Since they won't go through portals in the angled portalable walls, they don't seem to have any purpose in the course of solving the map. Is that correct?

Thanks for playing. It's easy to understand why this puzzle didn't get much love, but it's nice to see that some people enjoyed it.
