Now, in the first picture, see that little box back there? I need that to open another level....but how do I get there? Jumping doesn't work...portal jumping also doesn't work....the entire room is made of steel so I can't make portals in there and I can also not pick it up with 'E' ! :help:

Ya I was pretty stuck on that room to. Took me a while. Wish I could remember exactly what I did but alas... :( All I can remember is I think there is a platform way down on your right in the 1st screen shot. You have to use it to get a momentum jump going (but I don't remember for what). And everything has to be timed precisely to coincide with stuff that's moving! There that should clear it up for you - LOL o.O

oh hahahaha that goddam room!

I take it you manage to get across to the other side but can't figure out how to get back?

If you look down from where you are standing you'll see a small area that you can blast a portal into and zip back across.

Yea I remeber, its one of those "you must time it perfectly" rooms, first you make a portal for the ball, to come out somehwere to open a door, then you have to make another portal to ball onto a button then portal quickly to anther, seriously thou, I suggestb you watch the video for that one level, it took me a long time to realiuse what I had to do, and I don't know how to explain it, also, your not even half gdone the game yet :P Remeber theres cake!

That one took me a little while, I remember!

1. You've already cleared out the turrets. Get yourself on top of the sealed box that needs the energy ball.

2. Arrange the portals so that the energy ball heads into the sealed box (obviously it won't actually get in, since the door is shut for the moment).

3. On top of the sealed box, looking outwards, that red switch? That opens the sealed box. You need to hit it, but the door doesn't stay open for very long afterwards.

4. What you need to do is wait for the energy ball to pass through the portal (now heading directly for the sealed box), and immediately set one portal onto the panel facing the switch. Run off the top of the box and shoot the other portal into the floor on the way down. As you pass through the portal (which winds up shooting you directly into the switch), hammer the E key to hit the switch. It might take a few tries, but it can be done. If necessary, practice hitting the switch really quickly from the top of the box. After that, it's probably business as usual, if you've gotten this far.
