Can someone please find some sort of built-in cheat so that when you take a step in the step challenges it won't count? Because I tried the trick where you go through the portals over and over again, but it still counts as a step for some reason.

no there is no such cheat like that, you can enter codes to place portals anywhere, but you have to use a save exploit or the game will know you cheated.

It doesn't when you do it right. Don't move, just go through the portal and fire the one you're about to fall back in through somewhere else so you land on the ground. No step.

Yeah, basically you need to have 2 portals on the floor, and it's better if you aren't getting very high each time. Whilst you're in the portal swing, shoot the same colour portal that you're about to go through onto a wall or ceiling, and you'll land where the poratl was with no step. The higher you were going though, the more likely you'll move a little and step when you hit the floor.

I didn't have any problems with the Cake achievements (other than completing them), but when i finish with a challenge, it takes me to the main menu and when I try to start a new game, there are no challenges available. Not even the Cakes. I have to beat the game again to get the new menu, and then the medal I earned is gone. I couldn't find anyone else talking about this, but if it happened, could someone point me to that thread? (This is 360 if that matters)

like this one http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=150636

Getting Gold on the challenges are impossible for me, even trying to get bronze on all of them... Those 3 achievements are the last ones I need to complete Portal, but I don't think it's going to happen.

Thanks for the Guide on the Cameras, came really helpful.

I can't wait for another box with more Half-Life, Portal, and Team Fortress craziness.

thank you so much for this guide. I had pretty much given up on the aperture, basic and rocket science achievements.
Now I have to kill 500 more people on Team Fortress 2 to 100% this game

Wait... so you only need to do 1 of the 3 challenges for each? I could just do least portals or do I have to do least steps and least time as well?

A tip to get the Terminal Velocity achievement. Make sure your two portals
are oriented in opposite directions. When you look down at yourself you should see yourself looking in the opposite direction. This way as you're falling you don't constantly inch in one direction.

Managed to get "Aperture Science" in one day. Heck, this is even worst than Dark Agent in Perfect Dark Zero. Lots of memorization and patience (and fast movement) to accomplish this achievement.

Some videos are crazy, but I don't want to break the world record, just wanted the damn achievement! Now I got 1000/1000!!!!

To be completely honest my thoughts were - This is impossible without cheats. My trick was really to just use this site
http://www.cheatscodesguides.com/xbo...s/half-life-2/
Put them in, then use the save exploit at the end of the game
(Save the game at the end, start a new game on any level, then reload your save) Game doesnt know you've cheated and you've easily completed it.

I'm sorry but the least steps some were insanely impossible without the cheats. Being able to fire the energy balls and place portals Anywhere was just like a gift from god.

Yeah! I can't blame you, some of the challenges are quite impossible, but the least steps weren't hard for me, but the least time!! Especially the one with all the turrets... god... got 0:52!

But honestly, If you keep try and retry, you can achieve gold even without cheats. I spent all my day from the morning till the late night to get Aperture Science... and, phew, everything is done!

But hey, I'm quite happy you enjoy your achievement now

I'm currently stuck at getting level 16 least time at or under 52 seconds my current best was 55 seconds. Is there a best and somewhat easy way to get it or is it just trail and error?

Just got Aperture Science today after about 4 days of trying the challenges on and off. The link to the Portal Walthroughs site was extremely helpful. I watched every video available and had to redo specific areas repeatedly until I got it just right and made it to a spot to save. All the videos are useful so watch every one of them that is available; you may mix and match different techniques in each video to get your gold on the map.

I thought this game might not be possible to get 100% in on the console because the guys in the videos seemed to be using the PC version of the game, and the mouse is so much more accurate than the 360 controller, but I proved myself wrong. It just takes patience!

I guess it may not be impossible.... but I know I sure as hell can't do it. This game has made me curse everything under the sun trying to get the damned science achievements. I'm just gonna stay at 930 in this game and forget about it
