Where is the next part?

Yuk! Just goes to show you can make test chamber so esoteric that it ceases to be fun.

WOW! Great map!
This is probably the hardest map I've ever played. Thanks for a fantastic job!

I Like all the series but I found this map too difficult
Tmast98  [author] Mar 1 @ 10:36am 
@Chell, no I didn't.
Phookamon Mar 1 @ 10:35am 
I don't think he finished it...
RANDOM EXPLOSIONS Mar 1 @ 6:15am 
Well if there's a boss fight I would love to play it, where can I download it?
Tmast98  [author] Feb 28 @ 3:14pm 
@RANDOM EXPLOSIONS, no, there was one last part left with a boss fight. I have no plans to finsih this series now though as I have improved my skills a lot now, so I would not want to go back to work I did from a long time ago.
RANDOM EXPLOSIONS Feb 28 @ 10:12am 
wait, so the ending is stepping in the elevator at the end and going down for a bit?
(not a problem if you just designed it in that way, i was just expecting to actually have a part where glados is like: BOOM YOU'RE A KILLING MACHINE NOW)
Tmast98  [author] Feb 27 @ 3:13pm 
@Chell, I have no plans to make part 10.
Phookamon Feb 27 @ 2:32pm 
how long 'till part 10?

I was liking everything somewhat in Killing Machine. The behind-the-scenes on any map has taught me that it should be rather easy to get to where I need to go to get started in an official test chamber with an official start. Then I got stuck. Looked at the solution video. Holy crap! Wasn't expecting that. Everything prior to part 9 was increasing difficulty steadily and then a steep increase in difficulty for part 9! I'm sorry, this one made me think "I quit". It's quite a clever puzzle, I'll give it that, but it is too tedious and too long to piece together that kind of stuff, on the player's own, in that kind of way to finish it satisfied.

this is the 1st of the series, that I did not like.
the obscurity was high.
executing the solution was harder, due to not seeing the location of the gel.
(when in the light bridge room, in the final sequence)
this left logic behind & it became guess work.
as a result, it went on the wrong part enough times to be frustrating.
the concept was good & the visual aspect.
& you did rate it as hard. (which it was)
so no thumbs down.
but no thumbs up either.
but don't be discouraged.
I have enjoyed the rest of the series.
& look forward to playing more of your maps.

Wow... I have no idea how I solved this but i made it... this map was just incredible, the solution was straight from satan in person and it was great.
There are a couple of annoying spots where blue paint can end and ruin some jumps but it's ok, this is intended to be an hardcore map and so it is. Favourite

Can't believe I solved this. The solution was obscure and I would think the method used does not cross the minds of more casual players. Still, it was rewarding to get this one finished.
Krzychu Sep 12, 2013 @ 12:38pm 
THAT.... YOU SHALL BURN IN HELL FOR THAT MAP!!!
But seriously, great job, that was one of the hardest maps i ever played. And i only figured it out because i ragequited it, and thought about it right before i went to sleep. Also, ive almost googled for walkthrough (now that You wrote that, there were two ways to solve it, ill see if i chose the longer, or shorter version). Anyway, you just stole a little time of my life, i hope You will enjoy it as much as i did!
Tmast98  [author] Sep 7, 2013 @ 12:32pm 
@Vexza, yes, still plenty of Portal 2 maps are working their way to being released!
Vexza Sep 7, 2013 @ 11:57am 
Stil P2 maps i hope ? If so ill wait for those ;)
Tmast98  [author] Sep 7, 2013 @ 11:41am 
@Vexza, I will be honest with you and say not to expect number 10, possibly ever. I have moved onto various other projects I feel are of higher quality then these levels. Sorry for the dissapointment :/
Vexza Sep 7, 2013 @ 10:05am 
Took me long enough to get to the last part. Long time ago since a saw a solition like this. Great work. I will wait for nr 10;)
Bayram Aug 19, 2013 @ 6:49am 
I did not enjoy this Part. The solution is too obscure and tedious to execute.

Pros:
• Lighting, sound, detail, and layout are all improved from prior entries;
• Incorperating prior level into the solution is very clever;
• Solution is sure to test even the mightiest portaler's mettle;

Cons:
• Conversely, one might say the solution is needlessly complicated and convoluted;
• Whaddaya' mean 'You aren't supposed to be here'? Rig the geometry!

Thoughts:
I'm honestly not sure which side to come down on for this map's doozy of a solution; it's by far the most obtuse one I've come across in user maps, but at the same time it's exactly that quality which makes the map stand out.

Wow, seems like you got quite mixed attitudes towards the level. I for one loved this map. I would second the person that said that it's not really clear that the surface for moving the cube off the button is portable. I managed to get it done by putting the cube on the edge of the button and just placing a portal on the ground next to it.

It's very unfortunate that the gel doesn't respawn on the bridge if you die, and when I got the repulsion gel all over the place it made it difficult to reset at times because I'd bounce to my death on accident.

I loved it though. Great idea, and even once I got the general concept right, it took a while to figure out all the details. For me, the difficulty made beating it all the more satisfying.

These all suffer from a real lack of balance between logic and effort. There's an extraordinary amount of time wasted - even the intro cut scenes just waste time. I admire the effort, but these simply aren't very entertaining.
ƦɅƉ∑LIƬE Jun 20, 2013 @ 4:38pm 
well I seen a couple of maps you have made without it so I was just wondering
Tmast98  [author] Jun 20, 2013 @ 4:32pm 
@RADELITE, yes, did this one not?
ƦɅƉ∑LIƬE Jun 20, 2013 @ 4:29pm 
you know how to make a level end trigger right?
Tmast98  [author] Jun 17, 2013 @ 3:56pm 
@[NGD]Quadman450, Didn't I use to have you on my friends list? Well, either way, part 10 will come out when I can graphically overhaul the whole map, I keep getting distracted! Plus my graphics card is deep fried so I can't really work on that map in particular at the moment. I appriciate the patience!
[NGD]Quadman450 Jun 17, 2013 @ 1:35pm 
Very nicely made map! When is part 10 coming out?!?! I can't wait!!
Extragamer May 26, 2013 @ 5:50am 
Dammit,thats was really hard.Awsome test!
K.I.A. May 25, 2013 @ 9:41am 
I enjoyed most of your series, however this level is too annoying. Only two portal surfaces and a lot of walking. last level is surely a disappointment in comparism to better previous ones.
Skunkrocker May 5, 2013 @ 7:53pm 
I hate this entire series.
E-mail May 5, 2013 @ 5:48am 
Awful level, and fact that gel doesn't save makes it even worse
staryoshi06 Apr 16, 2013 @ 2:59am 
i think the test in part 2 should look the same so it seems more wrecked than before
staryoshi06 Apr 13, 2013 @ 11:50pm 
and then i found out i didnt even need to do that
staryoshi06 Apr 13, 2013 @ 11:48pm 
yes i will cheat because i had it and then i died and had to start all iover again so add more save points maybe

You aren't supposed to be here! - Levellord (now, that takes me back)
turntechGodhead Apr 6, 2013 @ 11:31am 
I guess I will!
Tmast98  [author] Apr 6, 2013 @ 11:18am 
@mini-sentries are the devil, Yes, these levels are hard, most of them at least, there is no denying that. Hopefully you feel a sence of acompilshment after you complete each one however. As for the ending, I will release it as soon as I have a computer that actually works. Thanks for the patience. In the meantime, there are around 9 other maps I have done while waiting for a fixed computer, try them out!

Killing Machine: A Campaign for Masochists.

Really, dude, there's fun-hard, and then there's "Fuck this, I'm activating noclip" hard. I wanted to get on with the story, cause I want to see how this thing ends, aaaaaand there's no ending yet. A little bit of a letdown. :C
Tmast98  [author] Mar 26, 2013 @ 2:40pm 
@Chetix, unfourtnetly, until my computer is fixed, this project has been put on hold (as I can not play portal 2 I can not fix and determine what is wrong with the boss).
☭Bread_Stalin☭[ηϾ] Mar 26, 2013 @ 2:23pm 
how much longer until the final part?
derlbear Mar 16, 2013 @ 4:28am 
This was difficult... and I had to start again and again until everything worked fine.
kimist108 Mar 15, 2013 @ 4:20pm 
Irritating at the end. Would get gel on bridge. Didn't make the jump. Saved before I tried the jump. When started back up, gel was gone. Had to do that part all over again. After not making the jump 3 times, I quit. Maybe, I will try another day.
ioannis Mar 9, 2013 @ 12:34pm 
What a great map! Although I did something completely different to pass over:I painted blue one of the fallen ceiling blocks and used it to jump across without using the bridge or the other one that makes you float! It was kinda hard but it did the job.
Lama051 Feb 25, 2013 @ 1:04pm 
It is great set of maps, T-Upped them all, cannot wait for part 10 :D
Tmast98  [author] Feb 25, 2013 @ 8:22am 
@Lama051, In hiengsight, yeah I should have, hope it was still somwhat fun though!
Lama051 Feb 25, 2013 @ 4:19am 
Nice map, but you should have used that paint the bridge mechanic somewhere throughout the maps. So people do not keep on running around in circles expecting easier solution
EnderCorePL Jan 31, 2013 @ 12:16pm 
nice map, I think so part 10 will be epic
Tmast98  [author] Jan 13, 2013 @ 3:54pm 
@ThiefMaster, coming soon! Teaser images are on my profile!
