"very hard" Yeah, no kidding. Very cute. -_-

Thanks @quaternary

That was just enough clue for the ending bit!

Good work keep it up :D

Wow. Had me stumped for a while before I finally got it! All the best puzzles are like that - and yours is right up there with the finest of them :)

If I win a billion dollars, I'll hire you and Mevious to lead some kind of creative company of your choice. That's a promise :-) One of the best maps I've played this is..

@jsCP94 Congrats on beating it in the end, hope I didnt drive you too crazy xD

Without a doubt, the hardest map I have ever played; took me about 4 hours to solve. I was wondering why there was that lone panel in the second area. Anyway, kudos to you.

Excellent map. Took me a while to figure it out. Not sure if I used the correct method. I didnt use the light bridge in the 3rd area for anything. I went back into the first room and respawned the cube there, exchanged that cube for the laser cube then used the funnel from the first room to get the laser cube again and continued using the first room funnel for the exit. Very challenging, visually appealing. A strong thumbs up with this one!

Oh man. This is this kind of map when you just have to yell when you finally get to the end with every cubes and you in the same room.
Good job on this, keep going please.

Outstanding. I don't know the minimum number of times various cubes must be re-spawned, but I'm sure I tripled it in figuring out the right combination and sequence.

Awesome chamber! Very nice and interesting puzzle.
quaternary Sep 1, 2014 @ 2:16pm 
Hint for people stuck at the end - can you get the laser box again with a funnel instead of a bridge? there's 3 main areas and you solve five of them...

spent hours. even me myself don't know if I used special ninja trick to spoil the map. seems not.
TS_Mind_Swept Jul 25, 2014 @ 3:53pm 
well i was absolutely stuck, and i watched Selyp's playthrough and i was all "omt DUH!" that last part, you've dooped us all man! 8.5/10
YUKI_67 Jun 30, 2014 @ 7:04am 
Résolu. Mais il faut vraiment bien connaitre le fonctionnement des funnels pour trouver la fin. Bon difficile test, merci !

What a great puzzle!!... Kept me thinking for a while.Thanks a lot, this is high quality work. BTW the lighting at the beginning of the map is absolutely exquisite

Excellent. This is definitely the my favourite of the dilapidation series. You're a very talented map designer and test chamber creator. It took me days to work out the final piece of this puzzle.

May I shamelessly plug my latest chamber?

@TheDarkMuffin - Thanks, glad you enjoyed and congrats on solving, its definitely the toughest in the series :)
TheDarkMuffin Mar 30, 2014 @ 6:36pm 
Wow, this happens to be one of those puzzles that has a sort of...strange, intuitiveness to it while still being difficult enough to make the solver feel like they're special and unique. I absolutely love it.
rob Mar 19, 2014 @ 12:08pm 
Very, very clever. The last part was brilliant and very difficult. How do work theses things out? Great work!
enumag Jan 25, 2014 @ 2:54pm 
One of the best chambers ever. Especially the final part, took me a while to figure out which funnel to use and which cube can be sacrificed.
Long Stride Dec 15, 2013 @ 1:27am 
This is a brilliant map. You sir, have bested me.
TDK necron 2010™ Dec 11, 2013 @ 7:11pm 
not sure i did the one chamber right but opening the final door took me a good half hour.
Poots Nov 14, 2013 @ 1:14pm 
Wow -- what an epic, challenging, rewarding puzzle. One of the best I've ever played.
[ExR]-IAMV0LDY Nov 5, 2013 @ 7:19am 
Great map! It's quite hard and the final part is incredible!
The only suggestion I can give you is to find a way to differentiate the two cubes (maybe put one companion cube?) since it's really easy to confuse em. I'm not sure if this really matters for the final solution since you are supposed to use the laser cube that's already different but at a point i ended up fizzling the wrong cube and this destroyed the strategy I had in mind and because it would take so long to recoer the cube you should hope to have a good save...
Anyway great job again, check my maps (expecially the "impossible" one) in case you too wanted to paly an hard map ;)

Brilliant puzzle, pretty neat backtracking going on. Thumbs up. Design 9/10 Difficulty 7/10

I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very satisfying. On with life..........................

Awesome test chamber :) Could you try mine? http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=180312984
hippisa Oct 8, 2013 @ 9:36am 
Awesome. A very clever work. Only one problem: in the 3th room it's possible to bypass the lightbridge entering in the funnel jumping on the button of the cubes dispenser, maybe you can bring the button more away to avoid this . (sorry for my poor english)
Ale Oct 6, 2013 @ 8:08am 
Great puzzle, thank you!
Relo@d Oct 2, 2013 @ 12:20pm 
How can you dream up all these fantasic puzzles?? This is another awesome map. I never get dissapointed with your work. Really hard puzzle and beautiful design and surroundings! Far more tricky that the game and really so beautiful that I do not need Portal 3 (if its a plan for that) Hope the creators hire you for designing upcoming games! I only miss some friendly speaches from Glados since I feel lonley all the time it takes to beat your awesome puzzles! :-) *****

Sir, you are the king of back-tracking. You could have worked on Tomb Raider with those skills. I like when you have to use an earlier element that you may have forgotten about to get to the final solution.
Der HammerMeister Sep 5, 2013 @ 10:16pm 
...and finished! Great work!
Der HammerMeister Sep 5, 2013 @ 10:11pm 
I'm pretty sure I trapped myself in the third room in an attempt to solve the test :P
Unowninator Sep 5, 2013 @ 4:16pm 
Very tough, although I would like to say that I accidentally trapped myself in room 3. After bringing the cube outside the room, I wanted to go back inside for the funnel. But I accidentally took the wrong cube, so when I hit the dispensor (SP?) button, the red laser grid blocked the exit so I couldn't get out. I felt you should knoew.
guy612006 Aug 27, 2013 @ 5:26am 
very awesome test, only had 3 that i had to save and come back too, this was # 3
iLee Aug 26, 2013 @ 1:10pm 
Holy fn©kiug sh!+! It took me FOREVER, but I managed to solve it without spoilers. Like everybody else, I was having trouble with the exit/last door. I had to stop playing, go to bed, think about it, and come back to it the next day, but I suspected I had it figured it out, and my plan worked!

You're a sick, evil genius. I think I'm going to do it over again now just for fun.
-=GBH=-Haggis Jul 15, 2013 @ 2:30pm 
Damn, had to look at a the video by Josepezdj. My fav so far. In room 2, i did not have to use the cube, and i bypassed the funnels as well. I used the light bridge to get myself to a certain height, then i placed a portal in the room where the cube is. When i dropped back down to the floor, i walked through the portal i placed at light bridge
sirnicolai Jun 4, 2013 @ 12:12am 
Thanks for making me feel stupid. Im completely stumped on the final door. Must resist watching a playthrough, ill figure it out one day.
karl-volkmar Jun 3, 2013 @ 6:16pm 
the end is insane! (yet logical) i love it!
Extragamer Jun 3, 2013 @ 1:58am 
Cool map.And i dont know what to do with last door.Hard puzzle!
Iron Yeti Jun 2, 2013 @ 8:20pm 
This series is some simply amazing puzzle creation. Challenging in the extreme, yet requiring nothing but some very creative "thinking with portals". I'm loving it.
Dafflewoctor Jun 1, 2013 @ 8:40pm 
Somehow I managed to do this without a walthrough... 0.0 took me about two hours!
Hunden May 30, 2013 @ 3:38pm 
Wow! Wow! Wow! Superp chamber!
You sir are a gifted map designer! I was close to frustration. Nice job! I'm wondering if the light bridge in room 3 has any application.
lord_blex May 29, 2013 @ 8:41am 
Oh my god, the end was impossible. I had to watch the playthrough to solve the last bit.
My brain melted, I think.. :P
frostmothe May 10, 2013 @ 5:57pm 
Spoiler alert: I've got the cube to stay in the small room at the very start of this level (where it is spawned) by means of "reflecting" the funnel: http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/597003151693408376/7A6BAF08C7C7FA7606D039D0DC5B9D48365571DF/ . Cheat or not?

@Selyp Already added it to the description :p Congrats

Finally finished Dilapidation Part 4 - this one is crazy! Playthrough here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDr-d-FOR1k
wildgoosespeeder May 7, 2013 @ 4:24pm 
I solved the first part a different way. How do I know it was different? I looked up a solution video and it demonstrated a better way to solve the first section. My alternate way involved flinging the cube with the funnel and timing it to get it to the side that needed it so that way I can use that cube in the second room. Getting to the part where I get the final cube where I needed it to activate the exit door, I knew that the funnel in the third room was an impossibility to use for opening the exit door (I think anyone would figure that out) so I remembered the other funnel in the first room. Using my way of solving the first test again had me pulling my hair to not fizzle my portal routing. Fix it so that way flinging can't be done.

I don't know why the horizontal funnel was needed (the one that you can change polarity of).
Warmonger May 4, 2013 @ 12:28pm 
I love complex puzzles with returning elements. It was amazing to figure out you can replay the chamber in a very different way :) Still, took ages. Thanks for all the tips posted, I wanted just to give it up.
