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

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 :)

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.

Very, very clever. The last part was brilliant and very difficult. How do work theses things out? Great work!

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.

This is a brilliant map. You sir, have bested me.

not sure i did the one chamber right but opening the final door took me a good half hour.
Arrdeearr Nov 14, 2013 @ 1:14pm 
Wow -- what an epic, challenging, rewarding puzzle. One of the best I've ever played.

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 differentbut 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

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)

Great puzzle, thank you!

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.
pa1ntmaster Sep 5, 2013 @ 10:16pm 
...and finished! Great work!
pa1ntmaster 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.
Dr. Toaster Waffles Jun 1, 2013 @ 8:40pm 
Somehow I managed to do this without a walthrough... 0.0 took me about two hours!
Hundehautentzündung 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.
Nalkahn May 2, 2013 @ 3:16pm 
Awesome map, the last part is amasing.
temporarymanwastaken Apr 30, 2013 @ 6:20pm 
Wasn't so hard, but maybe that's just the weird things all those Mevious maps did to my brain. Loved the ending.
Elidorn Apr 28, 2013 @ 7:13pm 
Fantastic Test chamber, I seem to have had an easier time with the final exit room than most, but it was still fiendishly difficult, in fact every part of this puzzle had me stumped at some point or another. yet at no point did it feel unfair. One of (if not the) hardest maps I've tried, and certainly the most satisfying to finish.

Thank you!
ofir_peller Apr 25, 2013 @ 11:49pm 
really grate. took me sometime but eventually got it, except for the last thing. had to get some help from the internet for that one. didn't think enough. thank you for making this! had a grate time playing in it! :)
piotr_mil Apr 19, 2013 @ 4:07pm 
The first part is difficult enough, the cube switching wasn't needed IMHO. And at this point the maps become repetitive.
mood3rd Apr 4, 2013 @ 9:50am 
great map
the puzzle was:
wow.
took 2 visits.
1st visit, I could not get the 1st cube.
2nd visit, completed this map :)
I think I took the screenshot, to prove I did it, to myself:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=136712759
completing chamber 1,2 & 3.
then going back to chamber 1 & 2 to get & keep the funel:
ahhh...
you monster :)

a real sense of achievment on this map.
but as you say:
"Very Hard Difficulty"

Room 3 had a couple of items that I didn't use. The room with the pressure plate on the wall and the light bridge and the water.
jjjlenn Mar 31, 2013 @ 9:31pm 
Wow. i stuck with it this time and that was amazing. I had the 3 cubes in the exit area and was stuck. Felt a little like Part 3, so close and yet...

Not sure what some of these folks would find very hard. That was the hardest one to date and really clever. Thanks for the fun, you are awesome.
dante Mar 29, 2013 @ 2:57pm 
It wasn't "Very Hard" for me, but it was medium-hard and still amazing.
NiclO (- - ) Mar 22, 2013 @ 3:36am 
Hehe that was fun. Great map! Thank you! That was a nice challenge. 12312 ftw.
Woodbeam Mar 17, 2013 @ 6:48pm 
Would it be possible to make the funnel the ordinary speed or, even better, slower than ordinary and make the distance between the cube dispenser button and the grating you can grab it through greater to compensate? In any case, on its own the overdrive funnel is super cool; I don't think I've seen funnel speed played with before, and there's even attention to detail to its presentation with the sparks. Amazing.
LoneWolf2056  [author] Mar 17, 2013 @ 6:31pm 
@Woodbeam, there are a few different ways to solve that room so you might not need to use it.
