Ooh, could you please put them in your dropbox? I really like the music you made :)
CosmicD  [author] Feb 14, 2015 @ 2:02am 
I don't really have them on soundcloud because all it is is just some custom composed one shots to build atmosphere, it's not really complete pieces of music. But if you really want I could put them in a zip and put them on my dropbox
Gordelphus Feb 13, 2015 @ 9:54pm 
This level is fantastic! The custom visuals, as well as the puzzle itself, were very nice. Please, where is your soundcloud? I like the original music you made for this level so much!

great level with perfect visual effects ! except the room of pure white is a bit too ugly.
YerMom Aug 9, 2014 @ 4:15am 
Did you ever put the custom music on soundcloud? Also, what is your soundcloud?

I never really released this outside of the mod but I could throw it on my soundcloud for everyone to download i guess. I'll try to do that today.
YerMom Jul 20, 2014 @ 2:37am 
Where can I find the original music for this campaign? It's very nice.

Very nice. Very unique!

truly a mind bender.

Awesome test chamber. Can you try mine? http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=180312984

I liked it a lot. Very strange but in a good way. Nice use of linked portal doors.

I found the float to the exit elevator glitchy - maybe take control of the player at this point and float them thru the necessary turns into the elevator rather than rely on the player to get there themselves - theres nothing more to do anyway, and an end cinematic such as this caps this level nicely. The button triggers a strange light purple fuzz, like a teleportion - not sure if that is intentional, but was disconcerting - I kept looking for room changes, but found only minor changes. I assume this was means of implementing the exit? Not sure if thats such a good idea.
TysonWD Jan 18, 2013 @ 1:32pm 
These test chambers are horrible. They are glitchy, and they are difficult to the point that completion doesn't bring a sense of acomplishment. And, if there is a story, like the tags imply, then it is either so horrible that the author removed it, or it is poorly exicuted. Fail all the ways around.
CosmicD  [author] Jan 17, 2013 @ 4:08am 
I think I've solved the white intro pieces problem. I forgot to include some essential meterials into the workshop file. also refined a bit of the floor brushwork in the pedestal room (some details were missing in one white strip).

I hope you all can see the intro now with full detail materials on the blocks instead of white. The "white room" with the cave johnson picture in it is no bug though.
Spooky Jan 15, 2013 @ 1:23am 
excellent imaginative chamber, lovely details in design, looks and sounds and plays beautifully

Great puzzle, I'm sure. I never completed it as it was meant to be done.

GLITCH: After receiving the AHPD, I placed a portal on the room's only portalable surface, and placed the second portal on the top of the portalable surface outside the room. I jumped through the first portal, into the water, and into the gravity device from there. I floated through the exit and finished the level.
BabyCharmander Jan 13, 2013 @ 1:48pm 
WOAH, that was really challenging, but really cool. Way crazy level design, but I liked it.
Ostrov Jan 13, 2013 @ 2:33am 
Very interesting, but sometimes it's unclear what you have to do. Thank you very much.
iyooha Jan 12, 2013 @ 7:34pm 
Ok, finally I made it =) I think the most difficult point of this level is it looks to really hard to indicate the cube room. Anyway thank you for a good experience.
iyooha Jan 12, 2013 @ 6:43pm 
Well, it is a most difficult map I have ever played. Ok, what should I do just after getting a portal gun? There is no way to reach the exit.
Portλl Nerd Jan 12, 2013 @ 1:48pm 
The wake up was very well done, as well as the gravity shifts
Lynbean Jan 12, 2013 @ 1:26pm 
That was fun!
claudius18 Jan 11, 2013 @ 8:10am 
so strange... really good job ;)
Bowsakirby Jan 10, 2013 @ 7:41pm 
Intro and outro was SUPERB!!! and the level ending *thunk* made me lol
Afterbirth Jan 10, 2013 @ 6:00pm 
Why an ash tray with no cigar??? WTF. That was uncalled for.
CosmicD  [author] Jan 10, 2013 @ 12:37pm 
the white 'dreamy" room is normal. BTW i've updated the indicator on the second puzzle so it's a bit more clear now.
bananmanen Jan 9, 2013 @ 12:28pm 
The floor and walls in the room with the cave johnson painting are also white
bananmanen Jan 9, 2013 @ 12:27pm 
In the intro, all the textures are white for me, can i fix that?
h4r4ld Jan 9, 2013 @ 8:26am 
Nice map, but i can agree with demshock. The indicator line made me searching for an other button too. Took me about 10min to find out there is none and just try the obvious.
TechnoPrizm01 Jan 8, 2013 @ 6:28pm 
this is like the intro of portal 3!!! I could never get past the intro because of it's epicness!
demshock Jan 8, 2013 @ 9:37am 
Yes, the line caused me searching for the mysterious other button, because usually the line means you have to open the door. In this case it useless. It's not a bad puzzle though. :) I make puzzles, too, but only in the easier editor.
CosmicD  [author] Jan 8, 2013 @ 5:37am 
Hmm, perhaps I should repaint the indicators to the diversity vent that pushes you to the door. I can now understand why this is puzzling. And the indicator needlessly points from the white wall to the door. If I redraw it it might be more "hintful" for players. ALthough I only have seen you complain. People should complain more so I can use that feedback to improve the signes and such :)
demshock Jan 8, 2013 @ 5:30am 
Finally I made it. I thought it's something more difficult because I thought I shoudl open the exit door, too. I've desperately searched for another button to put the cube on. I shouldn't. :)
CosmicD  [author] Jan 7, 2013 @ 11:20pm 
This is a team effort with 4 or 5 people. I got a little help with setting up some stuff like 3d skybox for the intro room, and got advice on how to do some tech behind the scenes from the guy who made Suicide blitz for left 4 dead, The tech for the intro movie (with all the pieces) was a special animation model created by Bunny.

Then darth brush (of dead before dawn fame) came up with a restyle of the rooms for this workshop version. And he did the first 3 maps with it. Now I'm just building upon that for the next maps and we are besicly working together on it.

GLaDOS is performed by MissyChrissy and some custom icons are made by Tigerboy. So "everyone" had their part. All the puzzles and ideas & basic room design around them is mine though.
ZackRaven2000 Jan 7, 2013 @ 4:45pm 
Great map! Was this a group project or did you do it yourself?
ZackRaven2000 Jan 7, 2013 @ 4:45pm 
Anyone who gets the cube on the button and then doesn't know what is next, the unlocked room of all white is a momentum building room.
demshock Jan 7, 2013 @ 2:30pm 
Thanks, but you really don't help me. I should give up, I guess.
Timber Jan 7, 2013 @ 9:11am 
very confuzzling. I ght thru but it took half an hour.
General Maximus Jan 7, 2013 @ 4:49am 
No, I can get back through to the main room with it as well. But from there it doesn't seem like there's anywhere else to go, I must be missing something.
CosmicD  [author] Jan 7, 2013 @ 1:15am 
It's good to consider not only what portal to place but which portal to keep if you brought the cube to the main room while you're still being in the pedestal room.
General Maximus Jan 6, 2013 @ 5:28pm 
Much like demshock, I can get the cube into the main room and onto the button but from there I'm stuck. There doesn't seem to be anywhere else I can go, even in the second room the button lets you into.
babasbab Jan 6, 2013 @ 3:59pm 
I loved it!!!
Good difficulty
Thanks!
demshock Jan 6, 2013 @ 3:13pm 
I can get to the room with the EXIT with the cube and put the cube on the button. I saw the special room but I don't know what to do next. I can go from room to room even with the cube but how should I reach the exit?
CosmicD  [author] Jan 6, 2013 @ 12:41pm 
you know what happens when you call a cube. you can shoot 2 portals and you have to figure out a way to get you AND the cube out. It's not so hard if you consider that you can't shoot trough an active emancipation grille
