Cool that you did all 15, very very few skilled people can actually to it. Which one did you find the most difficult? Have any good videos?

Here is my one of my favorite achievement runs: http://www.youtube.com/user/nrnoble?feature=mhw4#p/u/13/c7xPCfY_nWc

i sense sarcasm. but i dont care, i was somewhat proud of myself :3
and sorry, but your run isnt as good...i was into speedrunning portal a lot, so i know about many glitches that make for awesome shortcuts (check out the youtube channels from "Transgenic86" or "nubSawace"), but even without those, with some mousework training, chamber 15 can be done a lot faster. still, if it was enough to get the achievement, congratulations

the most trouble? like i said, camera shy. pain in the ♥♥♥.
the most trouble on the challenges? steps. its annoying having to float between portals and aiming like that and stuff. also, fewest portals was annoying sometimes, since i always tried to finish as FAST as possible, and then thought "uh-oh. i couldve saved a portal there.
and yeah, for the video watchin on youtube: i did that alot for speedrunning, so i guess that counts too... :3

camera shy isnt too hard..its a cakewalk compared to 'Get some grub!' achievement in EP2.

No Sarcasm on my part. Check out a few of my posts and you'll discovered that I am not an angry teenager who trolls forums looking to spit on other's accomplishments, but just the opposite.

I was offering my video as an example of an actual achievement run (not a speed run, which are different) that I did because it took me many many hours to accomplish; if you can match it or better, I'd like to see what you can actually do.

There are many out there who are much better than me in terms of gaming skills, and there are also countless others who use glitches to get outside the map that result in incredible 'speed run' times; it is far harder to achieve all 15 by staying inside the map and not using shortcut glitches that allow instant travel to the exit elevator. Those that have done it by staying inbounds are highly skilled players.

@nrnoble:
and i didnt mean to sound offending in any way, sorry.
i shall record myself doing chamber 15! without any glitches! no oob, not even portal bumping (seriously, bumping is a glitch? D: ). not even STANDING in portals (WHAT? THATS a glitch too?)
ill do it today's evening...but ok: standing in between portals is legit, as well as solving some puzzles with some ninja solutions (last room of 15)...lets see if i can beat that time :3

As a player I personally don't have objections to Portal bumping (or other glitches) when the player stays within the map. Once they are on the outside, that just seems like leaving the virtual world, and being back in the player's real world much like an actor on a movie set, who can walk 10 ft and be transported instantly to somewhere else when entering a differ part of the set..... :)

A part of me suspects the Portal team discovered Portal bumping before releasing the game, debated if they wanted to fix it, but ultimately decided to leave it in the the game as an interesting, but harmless, effect they did not design. They clearly have decided not to fix it in a patch even if it wasn't known before release. Overall it can't be leveraged to any great advantage in any of the achievements which is really where it counts; maybe in Chamber 17 challenges it does make a difference, but not by too much.

Yes, standing in portals while shooting surely is a design feature of the game; couldn't complete even the Bronze medal achievements without using that skill.

If you are going to make a video, do whatever you consider is fun\interesting, and don't worry about the details of what is\isn't a glitch. Clearly from watching Youtube videos a majority enjoy what can be done leveraging glitches in the game, which is cool too. My thinking is that anything that can be done within the map was likely known in advance of release of the game, thus perfectly acceptable to be used during achievements.

nice, trenmost :3

and the thing especially with portal bumping is...they cant fix it with a patch. theres the option to remove any portal bumping (portal_placement_never_bump or something like this), but that means your aim has to be dead on for every portal you shoot in the game, which isnt what they wanted either. theres no way to leave it in the game and only remove the exploit.
and the chamber where portal bumping really shortens things is 16 - you can skip the closed door, bump right into te main turret room and thus bypass ~60% of the level ;)
and recording portal gameplay is annoying :( you cant just make a dmeo and record that, portal messes up with demos...no, you have to record the gameplay itself, and thus, expect lower framerates.
ill upload one in maybe one hour...let me make a new youtube acc for this :p

EDIT: oh no. the upload takes 3 hours -_- sorry not doing it right now...maybe next week, my internet will be faster then...but i managed to get a 0:40 time without any big glitches...and WITH the stupid framerate i get from fraps ;)

I have gotten all (14) achievements 12 times for me and all my friends but I am on the xbox so I can't do the "Transmition Received" achievement. I love this game :D.

PS. It was pretty easy, Except for Chamber 13 Least steps, I got stuck there for a few hours...

hehe cool this thread has actually catched on...thanks for contributing :3
also, i didnt really mind the advanced chambers, although 18 was the hardest one...still, challenges were more annoying :P

you know what would be really cool? if they would release the "still alive" achievements on the PC version as well...
"out of the blue" sounds like so much fun, and we cant do it properly...well we could do it ourselves of course, but thats no fun ;D they should just release this as a new achievement pack for the PC
also, am i the only one who think the "still alive" achievements are more difficult to do than the noral ones?
Those (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/portal-still-alive/achievements/) sound like more fun than the original ones, and also require somewhat a greater understanding of the game (get trapped, only exit blue portals etc.)

At first I was happy with 13/15 bronze.
But after I saw some clips on youtube (nubSawace has some nice runs) I decided to try it. It 'only' took me 25 hours to get them.
I hated the speed runs the most.

Learn to move without making any steps.

Shoot an orange portal where you want to get. Shot a blue portal beneath you. When you're on the other side, quickly shoot an orange portal somewhere else (like the ceiling). By doing that you will close the orange destination portal and fall to the ground without registering any steps.

I had the same problem too. Most likely it will take looking at some youtube video to see how others have done it, and even then it takes a bit of practice. Of all the achievements, 'steps' probably the least interesting of the three (Time, Portals, Steps).

Here is one example: Chamber 15 least steps (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTf_u4hKSSs)

also, especially useful for learning about least-step-related tricks might be the youtube channel of nubSawace (http://www.youtube.com/user/nubSawace)
i was the most impressed by his 1 step run of chamber 16 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8JjRKVLIws) - his idea at the end of the chamber is just ingeniuos.

Camera shy was the worst. Attempted that 3 times until I finally got a list and made sure I had every camera before moving on.

Which chamber did you keep missing for "Camera Shy"?

I must have done a half dozen runs overlooking the camera in Chamber 11. It was the last one I had to find.

I think I kept on missing the last on in chamber 16 actually, very easy to miss when you teleport through the grating/fence and it's above you where you don't think to look.

like i said, camera shy was the worst one for me too...but the thing was, i didnt miss "that one camera", but i missed another one on every try ;D i didnt bother making a list, and so i found myself thinking "did i get that camer back in room 13 this time?...DAMN"

I too have managed to earn every achievement. I had just got the Aperture Science achievement a few days ago. That one was a toughie! The rest weren't at all challenging. (However, I did find advanced chambers 17 and 18 quite difficult indeed.)

I'm actually proud of myself for doing that Aperture Sciece achievement. I like looking to see how other people have done and when I'm better, I'm all, "I did better then you!" I'd seriously like to see someone beat my score of 2 portals on chamber 13 without using a single glitch. Hehe. Or perhaps my 146 steps on chamber 17? :D

@OP The topic post seemed a bit braggy as well as your replies. Please, it's not cool.

Anyways, I have 3 step challenges to complete in order to get "Aperture Science", and I need "Camera Shy", and "Transmission received."

I had them all (except Transmission Recieved obviously) years ago.

And I got Transmission Recieved the night it was added.
