I am stuck in this secret room I do know that I have to use two decoys to kill the roachs that that are by the tile and in the lower left corner.

I have tried placing the first decoy in a couple of places (1 and 2) but I just can't find a way to get the upper roach and the lower roach before the cycle. When I do make it a mother ends up birthing at (3) and then goes into the tile area. Is this just a timing thing or a decoy placement thing or something else. Help please. :blush

As soon as I admited publicly that I couldn't do this room I saw the answer right in front of me. I think looking at the room as an insert helped me see my problem. If anyone else ever needs this help here is the clue that helped me.

Unfortunatly i cannot see the picture (even thought i'm registered, i think i've done something wrong there!) however i cannot kill the 2 queens that go into the right side bit with the trapdoors without getting stuck on the arrows. What am i missing?

Thanks

In-game, walk into this room and hit F6, wait for the demo screen to come up then reload this page. That should fix it.

and if you have any web protection software(like Mcaffe, or what ever that AV is called) make sure its not blocking the images.

I'm surprised no one else mentioned this, but there is a much simpler solution to this room.

This is the last secret room I have to conquer before moving to DP but the blue door is still blocking my entrance, is there something I have overlooked?

Secret rooms are unrequired and do not affect the state of the blue door.

You need to play (or restore) to the point when the blue door is down. Remember, you actually go through this level twice, so the blue door is not down the first time you exit the level.

Yep, I remember - thanks for the nudge, I had to find the right stairwell to get back to the correct area on the 15th once I got the next part of it.

Got 10 minutes? Alex Diener's feeling for the solution here is an excellent example of DROD problem solving.

ThemsAlltook plays DROD JtRH Episode 47

I especially liked the verbal self-control when he traps himself unnecessarily.

Stab her with a decoy. You have to do this before she spawns.
