Stupid Question. why would the NXE effect it?

The cheats work, and are very fun on Portal, but don't work on Portal: Still Alive.

I'm going to try for this tonight with the cheats. I've never even attempted these challenges yet, but from what i'm reading and the punishment people are putting themselves through to do it legit, i just said fuggit... Thanks for the thread =D
Will post back with results. I'm seeing that people are still having trouble with timed.. so i don't expect the achievement tonight.. but i do expect at least 12/18 golds. Then just gotta try for the other 6 timed ones.

You see what this has turned into, the exact reason why a huge part of the population has no respect for us.

You are sitting here bragging about your achievements in an imaginary world. Not that this is a problem, but the set up. Imagine in the real world, stealing wasn't illegal. Would you really brag about your 9-5 at the market?

When it comes to games and real life, there are easy and hard ways of doing things, who cares to brag?

And from my experience, those who cmplain about things like cheating, are usually the biggest cheaters.

I'm not bragging about my gamerscore. I couldn't care less about my gamerscore...I just like to 100% games.

These portal achievements are pissing me off. Even with the cheats a lot of the timed ones are insanely difficult. They really only help a lot in the least portals.

I have been trying to follow the videos in this thread but they're just not helping that much. I can't do them that quickly. There has to be an easier way.

I'm sure if I put a good day or two into it I can get silver in all of them easily - but I'd hate to put in all that work and still need to do it again for gold. These 3 achievements and TF2's Hardcore are the only thing holding me back from 1000 in this game.

These cheats worked like a charm!! Took me about 3 hours to get all 18 golds. The ones i had the most trouble with was TestChamber 16 Timed ( Damn turrets! ) and TestChamber 13 Least steps ( 10 steps, wtf? ). They were the last 2 i finished. Still don't know how i pulled off 10 steps in Testchamber 13, but i managed..

How do you input these cheat codes while paused? I'm trying to avoid jumping as that counts as a step. =\

edit: Nailed all the step ones... Last medal I need is Gold in Chamber 16 timed. >_<

edit2: Are there cheats for HL2? I need Neighbourhood Watch.

So did you find an easy way to input the cheats in the menu or anything? You can disable jump buttons while you do it - but this doesn't really help with the timed ones.

Cheats:

You don't really need it for Neighborhood Watch though. Use a lot of gamesaves and watch videos on YouTube so you know exactly where they'll be and it's pretty easy.

For the timed ones when you start the level, save it real fast ( Should have a save for 1 second in ) .. input the cheats, then load your one second save and the cheats are still active. Viola. For TestChamber 16 timed.. invincibility is your best friend, use the shots from the turrets to boost you to the next rooms, if they pin you against a wall, reload and try again until you get the right set up. I mean.. the door opened for me at 19 or 20 seconds.. i reached the checkpoint by 30 seconds, then just tryed to rush on by the last few turrets.. i think Gold is 52 seconds. With invincibility i made it in like 46, so there are a few seconds to spare.

I tried to use them but the stupid game wasn't letting me get it. Every time that I got to the end and saved and tried to load it, it still said I cheated. I spent lots of time on these and eventually got them all.

I feel a greater sense of accomplishment now though so I am happy to have them done. YouTube is a big help for these ...

Well now I feel a bit silly for busting a controller in a fit of rage whilst attempting the time challenges.

Those things aren't cheap!

This is a really helpful glitch, thanks for posting it.

However it is of limited help in several occasions. Firstly, I have got gold on all except least steps chamber 16, least time chamber 16 and least time chamber 15.

The timed ones are still difficult because the amount of time it takes to input the codes makes it near impossible to actually complete the level under the time limit. Therefore a couple have to be done legit.

And I don't know how the heck I'm going to get least steps in chamber 16...stupid turrets...

Also...does anyone know the cheat code for invincibility in Portal? I can't seem to find it.

Steps in 16 isn't that hard. Drop cubes on them all if you can't hit them with a portal.

For the timed ones, save your game immediately, input your Portal Anywhere cheat, then reload the game...it saves that one. Invincibility you'll have to re-input if you do it after a save...but one you know the code you can do it rather quickly and use it only when you need it.

Invincibility is the same as it is for HL2 from what I understand...so some sites list it and others don't. it's LB, Up, RB, Up, LB, LB, Up, RB, RB, Up.

Yeah, Chamber 16 least time was the toughest for me. I used invincibility and only took out the turrets that would push me back. Also, jumping seemed to help a bit. Finished it right on the dot at 52 seconds.

Once you really realize how to do it right you'll get through them quickly.

Don't step unless it's to get into or out of the elevator. Ever. Put a portal on the floor where you want to go, then aim directly down and set the other portal so you fall through. As you're falling through, immediately fire against a random wall with whatever you set for the first portal so you don't fall back through it. This does not count as a step.

It really only lets you put portals on the darker walls...if it's not letting you do that, then you input the code wrong...after inputting it you should see a small arbitrary message on the left side of the screen to note it's been done if you have no other cheat enabled yet.

Why would you NOT try doing it the normal way? I eventually succeeded.

Lol, what's next? A quick way to get Brass Balls in BioShock? A button combination to get every Ally achievement in Mass Effect unlocked?

And what do you mean by disabling the colored buttons?
This website is dedicated to making achievements easier in any way but to SPG and gamesaving. This is a legit way to get an achievement, using it's own flaws against it.

it's useful for everything. with turrets you won't die, that means you can shortcut things that otherwise takes longer.

i will sure be getting back to this game now i know there are cheats

haha i got all 18 gold in a few hours with my best being 10 steps in the last chamber. the one with the floors that dissappear at the end. bravo for cheats lol

READ THIS PART !!!!!
a good tip for the time challenges is start the map u want, save instantly, start a new game on any map, input the cheats during this new game then load the map u want (the one u saved instantly) this way u save valuable seconds having cheats on like invincibility and place a portal anywhere. (meaning u dont have to input cheats then when the clock is ticking because they are still registered on from the previos game u played) make sense?...this should be added to the main post (imo it helps alot)

I don't mind using the cheats.
It just drives me insane though when I see people beating my cheat scores, legitimately.

That's why he saves it and re-loads it...so the game doesn't recognise the cheats and gives him the achievement
