Thanks a lot!

I've had a bunch of your maps downloaded for a while after liking the first few, but my computer stopped being able to run Portal 2 for a while so I only just got to playing Stategy 2 and 3. They're both really good!

Not sure if I solved this right, but I launched the box across to exit, then I use bridge to reach the end.

@machmanx:
Thanks a lot for the comments and feedback, I am glad u liked it.
I will sure try them out, thanls for telling.

Sorry for the delay in playing this chamber. Let me start out by saying, "Mathey you Bastard! Putting that exit + switch right at the beginning only to shove cake in my face and laugh! GRRR!" :D :D

Ok, now that I got that out of the way, this was a pretty decent chamber. The difficulty was Medium-Easy in my opinion. Required a little logic thinking as I had to stop and stare from the laser room all the way down to figure out a game plan to get the cube through. The solutions were simple moves, nothing complicated. Yet there is satisfaction in solving this chamber. Good job man!

BTW, I made two chambers of my own available in my workshop. They aren't puzzles as much as they are stress relievers as you get to kill turrets. Try them out plz.

Great job as usual.

@Dreamer ( Portal 2Maping):
If you can read each maps descprition, it CLEARLY says that startey 1 is a tutorial for strategy 4, and that startegy 2 is a tutorial as well for strategy 3. And on top of that, its clearly stated the difficulty, in which case it says that the tutorials are easy....dont need to state the obvious again.

now here i had to think more. ^^ this is a good chamber. no video reqiured

@toncica:
Thanks for the video.
i dont care about spamming.....id understand why poeple worry about such small things in life....too many poeple live their lifes complaining and complaing about so much...anyways feel free to do what u like.

He means this: http://youtu.be/cgtvtmFsNVY
I also got another way to bring the cube to the exit.

Usually I don't spam links to my maps, I find that disgusting, but in your case I'll make an exception. ;)

sweet i think i got it. no dropbox, tho. can i just email it?
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 16, 2012 @ 12:01pm

4. Exit the map, and then go to My PC to the following directory to find the .dem file (the video): C/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/portal2/portal2
5. In that directory should be a file with the extension .dem with the name NameOfFile you gave it to it.
6. If u have dropbox u can upload it and send me the link to it here si i can have the file u recorded. If not we can see how else to echange the file between us.

Hope it was clear enough for u.
Cheers

@cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE:
U don't need any software at all. Just follow the instructions ahead and it should be ver clear:

1. While playing the map, open up the console (if u don't know how to do this, pause the game, go to keyboard settings, and search for the " console command" ).
2. On the console type these exact words (i'll put them in between " ", but they go without them): "record NameOfFile". In which NameOfFile is the name u want to name the .dem file that will be generated once recorded, it can be any name, for example Strategy3.
3. Play the map, and when u are done with it, bring up the console again, and type the following command on it: "stopdemo".

ill make you a deal -- if you can teach me how to record a demo, i will do it! i just figured u needed special software downloaded in order to take videos? but sure i'd appreciate if if you could explain.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 16, 2012 @ 11:07am 
@cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE:
Still very hard to imagine the way you did it...hanks anyways
U can record a demo with the console...if u like i can explain how.
[2CaaF] cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE Oct 16, 2012 @ 9:56am 
oh i'm sorry i misread you as being sarcastic. and i'm too noob to post videos and such. i'll just say again that when you're in that first chamber with the wall grating (after the room with the red button and laser), if you crouch in the corner you can get a portal onto the angled panel, and hop out with the cube onto the light bridge. that bypasses having to mess around with the laser. I have a lot of fun with your maps, bro. keep 'em comin'.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 16, 2012 @ 9:42am 
@cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE:
Cuz u can't do it the intended way?
Can u post a video o how u did the exploit u told me about earlier please so I can fix that?
Thanks
[2CaaF] cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE Oct 16, 2012 @ 9:38am 
you have succeeded in making me feel silly. : /
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 15, 2012 @ 11:49pm 
@cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE:
Nah....really? Lol
[2CaaF] cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE Oct 15, 2012 @ 10:24pm 
Yea I just tried it again without the lasers. I just got the cube with me in the sequential chamber with the grating. from there i crouched and could portal myself and the cube out by way of the angled portal panel. felt like an exploit while i was doing it!
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 15, 2012 @ 9:57pm 
@cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE:
How did u get the cube out without using the laser?
[2CaaF] cHeMiCaL iMBaLaNcE Oct 15, 2012 @ 8:46pm 
really nice puzzle..... but i was able to solve this without using the laser at all.... was that what you intended?
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 15, 2012 @ 7:40am 
Lazer||srs bsnss:
It sounds as intended, though the getting the cube to the exit is the most challenging part, not yourself....
srs bsnss Oct 15, 2012 @ 3:05am 
Wow, that was tough. I had been stuck on getting the cube from the fizzler hallway into the faithplate room for about 5-10 mins, and I'd almost given up until I realized I had a portal from the cube's area to the faithplate. I don't remember what I did to solve it, but somehow I did. Then I thought getting back to the exit was going to be easy. Wrong again. However, I was able to get back by jumping off of a light bridge, over some goo and through the fizzler back to the exit/entrance. I don't know if that's what you intended.

@Bober RS:
Wow thanks for all the support I apreciate it!
Bober RS Oct 13, 2012 @ 1:44am 
Absolutely! Great design (in spite of appearances it's really very important), very pleasantly planned level system and of course satisfying puzzles.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 11, 2012 @ 10:26am 
@smaccona:
Wow thanks man....I hope i liked them.
Try Strategy 2 again....I just made un update on it and its a little different.
smaccona Oct 11, 2012 @ 9:45am 
@Mathey2009 - yup I beat it and I've rated every one of your maps. Nice work!
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 10, 2012 @ 4:17pm 
@AD_79:
Thanks...u'll love it...and strategy 4: exchange es better!
I've played all ur maps, they are incredible.
AD_79 Oct 10, 2012 @ 3:59pm 
So many fizzlers! I'll play this map, it looks like a very good puzzle.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 9, 2012 @ 3:30pm 
@smaccona:
Thanks for letting me know it is fine....u did beat it right?
Hope u liked it, remember to rate.
smaccona Oct 9, 2012 @ 2:53pm 
Nice one. I originally had your dud map and could not do the end. Updated version is fine. Good job.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 9, 2012 @ 6:10am 
@MeatBag[RU]:
Dude that jump is not even easy to make....no one would ever do it....yes, use the light bridge.
MeatBag Oct 8, 2012 @ 11:04pm 
Replayed last version, the only "exploit" is jump from that portal to exit - http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=101680104 But it would be easier to use light bridge :)
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 8, 2012 @ 4:02pm 
TO ALL:

I'VE JUST MADE AN IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THE MAP, I DID NOT REALIZE THAT IT HAD A MISTAKE AND APARENTLY WITH THE LAST UPDATE IT WAS NOT SOLVABLE (MAYBE IT WAS).

NOW WITH THIS LAST UPDATE IT IS FINE.
Sorry for it.
Keep testing.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 8, 2012 @ 2:56pm 
@Metzger Ben | GER:
Thanks for the video solution...u solved it EXACTLY as intended.
@tedwilliams4808:
Yeah that timing thing is just very difficult to avoid...I tried to make it a much wider time window, but given the elements, the geometric distribution of them and the solution needed to solve the puzzle in hand (and I had to avoid some exploit with cube tosing), that's like the best way posible to make the map.
stormsend Oct 8, 2012 @ 1:21pm 
I played the others with no problem. This is the closest timing I have encountered yet. Maybe I solved it wrong but I wore out F7 trying to get the timing on that faith plate. Oh well, You get a hard one once in a while. Nice map. Thanks.
Metzger Ben | GER Oct 8, 2012 @ 12:59pm 
Awesome map here, keep it up!
Thanks for this map, I enjoyed it very much!
Want to try out really hard chambers from the worshop?
For all of those who were waiting for more great chambers from cool mappers check out these workshops:

- Testing: Fizzlers/Cubes/Buttons/Funnels and their applications in the field of science.
- Difficulty: Medium - Very Hard
- Estimated time to complete: between 5 minutes and 1 hour.
The other chambers are even better, it is harder and more elegant, with no fancy tricks or unconventional methods here.

Thanks again, and here my solution to this chamber: http://youtu.be/yCeFQ-jx0zo
