nice, don't know how you could improve upon that. All your steps are entrance + exit IIRC
Nice work stacking up the cameras from the secret room to get up the ledge.ALERTING THE INTERNETS:
I am the first person IN THE WORLD to complete the Test Chamber 17 challenge in ZERO portals.
That's right, I did the impossible. The least number VALVe ever put as a high score was 2 (Gold on this challenge is 2 portals).
In fact, VALVe so didn't prepare for it, that in the scorer at the end, the number 0 doesn't show up!
Proof of my amazing feat:
I'ma e-mail Gabe to make sure no one does it before me :E.
Couldn't you shave yet another one off by replacing the pit portal in the final room with the one you already made between the button and the door before?
I agree, and I'm not really proud of these records, but they're still fun to do. I tried to avoid having to use a programmable key of my G15 keyboard (same idea as AHK scripts), but the huge climb on chamber18 was pretty impossible.About glitching, scripts and speed runs:
General rule when doing speed runs is that you're supposed to be as fast as possible and tool-assisted speed runs don't usually count as "official" speed runs. What this means is that you may use glitches which are in game but you may not use scripts that perform a certain task one couldn't do manually, for example the Half-Life in ~31 minutes speed run uses such a script and has been debated by the speed run community to be void because the script basically is an automatic optimal acceleration script for bunnyhopping which cuts away a few minutes from the time by itself. The script includes parts which are humanly impossible to perform and that's why such are not allowed.
Oh and I also doubt that the fastest way to get through that level by doing that glitch but then again I think the Brick is after lowest possible amount of portals used, not speed. Amirite?
