Half Life 2: The Orange Box Achievements

Terminal Velocity

Fall 30,000 feet.  

Easy. Just find a open spot with a tall roof. Shoot one portal right above you and then one at your feet. Fall for about 2-3 minutes and you will get this one.

Hmmm, I borrowed this game and remember spending about 20 minutes trying to get this and couldn't. Perhapsong. I was jumping into pre-placed portals when I should've been placing them around me? It seemed like I would just barely clip the edge as I fell through every about 10th time.

For all you people getting stuck, I placed two portals, one above the other, and jumped in. After two minutes of sitting there, looking at my screen, I thought I did something wrong. Turns out you just have to wait there for ten minutes or something, (that was exaggerated, more like 6)

@2&4 Go to a hallway where the ceiling and floor are relativity close together, look straight up and fire one portal, then, making sure not to change you axis, look straight down and fire the other. If done correctly you will not have to make any adjustments during your fall, and you will never clip on the the sides.

It's been awhile since I've read here just saw your comment, thank you Crakajaaka it worked like a charm. As long as I didn't move the left thumbstick or axis as you put it, I was good!! I was being too analytical and trying to line up the portals.
