Dide I just watched the videos....and that is the intended way....I dont know why u would rather want a glass to cover the slantted panel when ur standing on the button, u only have to go a little to the left afterwards and shoot the portal to make the cube come to the funnel...it doesnt matter if people do 1 or 2 or 3 or 0 osccilations....its the way they do it....and thats the way its intended

Thanks man!

@Calmly Frenetic:
Ok I think I understand now. Can u record a demo and post it here showing how u can skip the purpose of the maps title?
Calmly Frenetic Oct 29, 2012 @ 2:53pm 
I mean the panel that flips out to an upward-facing angle.

@Calmly Frenetic:
Idk what u mena by flipped panel since there is not a single flipped panel in this chamber. But, shooting a portal to the ceiling where the faith plat get u to is while standing on the red button is the intended solution, so i cant put a glass to prevent that.
Calmly Frenetic Oct 28, 2012 @ 11:27pm 
Rather than moving the button, it might be easier to add some more glass so that a portal can not be shot at the flipped panel when standing on the button. That should guarantee at least one oscillation.

@Calmly Frenetic:
Thanks man, I usually do my maps so the name revelas something important about the puzzle involved in it.
Where would u rather put the button?
Calmly Frenetic Oct 27, 2012 @ 10:05pm 
If you do the end quickly, the title of the map doesn't need to be used in the solution. You could probably move the button to make it more likely. I enjoy those moments when a title reveals itself within a map. :)

@Dreamer ( Portal 2Maping):
Well I watched the video and it's not exactly an unintended solution, yes, there's a bit where u shoot a portal from the edge of the goo pit...but the rest is ok.

its took me FOREVER (5 frustrating minutes) to get that last part. Then i realized that you could put the cube on the ground

This was one of your easier chambers, but that's why it's called a tutorial. Easy to figure out but still required some thinking. Can't wait to see what this leads to :)

Thank you

Very good. Perfect level of dfficulty, not too easy, not too difficult. Keep it up.

Thanks a lot man...

Simple and smart - good for relax. Enjoyed a lot.

Nice and fast!
Please try mine! Thanks!
[GWJ] kexx Oct 11, 2012 @ 11:48pm 
Will do.

@[GWJ] kexx :
Dman....thats a good feedback....thanks a lot for all the support, I apreciate it very much man, glad u liked it.
U should play Strategy 4: Knockoff....its the same idea as a small map with few elements.
[GWJ] kexx Oct 11, 2012 @ 11:00pm 
Nice little map here. A proof that a good map doesn't necessarily require large spaces or numerous items. I tend to make larger maps, so I always enjoy those who can come up with smart concepts with as little as possible. You've done well in the use of simplicity. The lighting is good, the design is sound, and the mechanic employed for the solution is smart. I enjoyed this. Thank you for building.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 11, 2012 @ 10:24am 
There, I just made a fix on that issue.
I also made some design upgrades as well.
The map is a lot better now.

@Totoro:
Well, throwing a cube is never an intended solution...but suit yourself.
billyc74 Oct 11, 2012 @ 8:59am 
easy way: simply shoot a floor portal and one on the final panel that is yet to be put at an angle, jump in and throw the cube into the excursion funnel. whole chamber takes 10 seconds.
Jotta Oct 10, 2012 @ 1:31pm 
really good one now i follow you.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=101953260 would you try my new test? I really want to know what you think
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 10, 2012 @ 12:46pm 
@Stric_Matic:
Thank you.....yeah it's a cool way to do it.
Please try to write with format for spoilers.
Stric_Matic Oct 10, 2012 @ 12:28pm 
Liked the way you had to drop the cube on the Faith Plate without leaving the button.

@Metzger Ben | GER:

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/wkBWOzF5bAs

@tedwilliams4808:
That was the basic idea....thank you very much, glad u like it.
Play the 3rd part of the Strategy collection, it's even better.

Did a lot of thinking while standing on that button. It finally came to me. Very nice puzzle and well laid out. Thanks.
Splatadude Oct 8, 2012 @ 9:08am 
Very easy due to a lack of possible options that can't work giving only the one option than clearly can.
Senor Bones Oct 8, 2012 @ 8:53am 
Clever, really made me think.
Mathey2009  [author] Oct 8, 2012 @ 8:30am 
There, fixed the exploit.
