Emancipation Hell

A coop map of average to hard difficulty.

Main puzzle element: Material Emancipation Grids.

Several modern cubes have been slammed into an old one to create this puzzle.

[Update 21.08.2012]: Fixed the wrong solution posted by Derfas13 (many thx)

[Update 22.08.2012]: Fixed several glitches that allowed for wrong portal positioning or could get you stuck. Moved the aerial faith plate in the exit quarter of the map to the side for more convenience.

Hard map, but we had a nice feeling when we finally solved it. I think the aerial plate near the exit is still annoying as hell.

Er... it is really possible ? I mean i watch your hints and i'm still lost. Some elements just look useless and we don't know how to use the little bridge at the end side, or the button next to the water...

so lost... :/

Awesome chamber! Just as a chamber should be. Instead of a long but easy labyrinth, a short but complicated puzzle. I would however change that "average to high difficulty" description, cause it's definitely hard, it took us 45min. Plus, we almost didn't play it because when people say "medium/average" it usually means easy..

I have played alot of Co-Op chambers, this was the most challenging of them all. simple looking but very well designed, great job Leidtier

took me my partner 1 and a half hours to figure it out.

Nice puzzle! Visually you could improve it a bit though. Maybe go for a less sea blue blue and use the Wheatley blue instead, there are examples in the fog_controllers in global_ents. Some props could be better aligned with the underlying brushes, especially in the end corridor. If you go through the trouble of creating an outside world, I'd detail it a lot more - right now, a lot of areas you can see from the inside are very empty. At the same time, making the outside a 3D skybox could propbably help reducing the stuttering I had on my computer. I would replace the Glados dialogue with different lines. It's weird when she says "...given the other's performance so far" when you just connected and didn't show her any performance yet. Since it turned out a lot more difficult than you expected I would also make the line for getting the Sphere on the other side of the fizzler something more friendly. Looking forward to more tests!

AMAZING puzzle. Took my friend and me about 50 minutes to solve. The faithplate near the exit is a bit annoying though; maybe move it a bit backwards so it's less likely to step on it.

But totally thumbsup and an extra favorite =3

Wow, epic chamber.
Some annoying bit foer how things lined up to confuse, but that kinna added to it.

Took us about an hour to solve.

Top marks.

every single portable surface, every button, the excursion funnel, the light bridge and two of the three aerial faith plates are part of the puzzle and needed to complete it (the last faith plate is a safety net). There are no timed parts as well. The whole map can be solved while splitscreening with your self :-)
