I just completed Portal Chamber 17 least steps challenge and I thought I might say how I did it.

By the time you get to where they drop the companion cube I had 13 steps.

By the time I got up using the companion cube as a step where the first energy ball bounces up against the wall I had 33. Shoot a portal on the wall there. (I used orange)

By the time I got to the end of the hallway with the companion cube and I was looking down on the room where you need to shoot a portal so the energy cube can raise all the platforms I had 83.

I used a blue portal to angle the energy ball into the two rooms on the floor and the one above the room it's not easy but it's not extremely hard either just keep trying and you will get it.

Make sure you raise the platforms in the proper order or it won't release a third energy ball for you. The proper order is the one on the left as you enter the room, the easy one you bank shot that is elevated, and the one on the bottom right that is the hardest to get.

Portal the companion cube to the ground in the right corner next to the left room doorway. Then portal jump to the second platform and run and jump to the third. This should add another 7 steps or so. Then turn around and shoot a portal near the companion cube so you can get it when you are near the red button.

By the time I jumped from the 3rd platform up the stairs to the red button and placed the companion cube on it I was at 109 steps. From there you can get the gold you just have to keep trying until you get it down. I finished with 149 steps.

Anyway...that's how I did it.

Man I am so close to getting the stupid timed run on Challenge 18. I keep trying to do it with one run through because if I try and break it up into parts like I did the other ones it seems I get nowhere.

I just keep choking. So close but so far away. I hope the steps one isn't a real ball breaker.

So I just finished bronze and silver. The steps are the hardest. I have learned a trick though. Shoot a potal where you want to go (**KEEP IT ON THE GROUND**). Then shoot a portal under you. When you come out of the portal, shoot a portal anywhere else. You should be where you need to be, and shouldn't have taken any steps.

I'll edit the guide so it includes this tip

YEAH! I just finished all gold! It took a long time, but I can safely say that there are 2 key things to remember for this: youtube and practice. I saw many good stratagies on youtube and just practiced them. You will get it eventually, trust me

If anyone is struggling with least steps test chamber 17 use this video. The guy shows you how to do a little portal glitch which cuts off most of the map. It takes a few goes to do the glitch but it makes it super easy.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=36qrygVbbME&feature=related

If the video does not work search this guy in youtube FatSwinub or search this in youtube Portal Chamber 17 in 138 steps. I spent about 3mins trying to do this portal challenge due to this video. You can also use it to do the portal and time challenge aswell.

Can you portal bump (glitch in video above) anywhere as long as you know there is something on the other side of the wall?

Camera Shy Guide has a mistake in it. Chamber 11 only has 1 Camera.

Good video, but for the very first one how do I do that cube flinging thing he does? You know where he launches it onto the button, I have no idea how to do that. Thanks.

EDIT: Nevermind, I realised I have to press RT, not X.

I have a question about Basic, Rocket, and Aperture Science Achievements. Hypothetically, if I manage to get all gold medals in every level, do I have to go back and get the bronze and silver medals too? Or will they automatically unlock?

No, they are stacked, but I doubt you will get gold on you're first try for all of them.

It's possible, but extremely challenging.

Do the Portals first. You can definatley get those on your first try if you look up the placements.

If anybody is having trouble with Long Jump because of touching sides or whatever, here is an easy, idiotproof and guaranteed way of getting it on Chamber 16.

You helped me so much when you posted the link to all the portal walkthroughs helped by not having to look through you tube for hours to find all the parts I put together. Really nice find for us people who are to lazy to find out how to do the challenges by ourselves.

No...no, i'd say that's worthy of some bragging rights

I noticed a lot of the youtube vids are done on the pc version, which seems considerably easier to me. Well done. This one is gonna take me a VERY long time.
