Ok, so obviously the idea is to get the four roaches onto the four pressure plates. However, I can never get more than 2 into place before getting the next one into place removes all the others that I already had in place.

Suggestions?

There's a simple trick. I kicked myself when I figured out after working at the room for a while.

Yes - it's obvious once someone tells you it... :blush

Thanks, Perndog!

I am still confused how to use the clones and move the roaches into place to open the doors. I would appreciate some more hints about how to use the clones. I guess I don't understand the basic concept of this room.

Thanks for some advice

Why the heck are there four clone potions that seem pretty useless? Well, use all of them and now you can switch between Beethro's to lure the golems and roaches where you want.

Not sure if this was the confusion or not, but to be more explicit:

Just switching between the clones takes no time at all, and won't affect the roaches. Switch to the clone in the direction you want the monsters to move, and press 5 or your 'wait' key so that they go toward the clone you've selected.

Don't you have to use the clone to break up the monsters so the roaches can get into the trap doors? An if you do that you can't get down the final gates. Boy I am amazed that I am so dense. I must not be seeing the obvious. I'm surprised I got this far in TCB. I'm obviously not focusing properly.

Ah. No, if you ever put a clone on the inside, you'll never get anybody to the right edge or out of the room. But the roaches will fit in between the rock giants just fine.

I think I am getting the idea. I have all four clones plus Beethro active with Bethro waiting in the final gate area. But I can't move the roaches from the bottom of the rock monster area to the top two pressure points. I'm working on that. Thanks for the hints so far.

I know I am missing something stupid. If I get a clone, I am stuck because of the trapdoor.

Don't forget that you can switch between active clones with the tab button, or by just clicking on a clone.

Please could someone supply a demo?

I have four active clones and one roaming Beethro but I'm having extreme difficulty maneouvering roaches (or even just one roach) onto the pressure plates between the rock men. Using tab to switch between clones I get, but I can't seem to create a gap between the rock guys for a roach to enter into to direct it where I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm saying this because my demo might be a little messy, but I'm sure you'll understand what I mean when you watch it.

I can beat this room easily but the challenge eludes me.

Am I correct in thinking that, once all four clones are activated, the fifth "free" instance of Beethro is best parked right over by the doors, so as to be able to step through them the moment all four roaches are in place?

Because if I keep him outside to roam around, then the moment he moves, the golems and roaches move too. It would seem to me that trying to use him to actually move the roaches around is unlikely to be of much use.

If it *is* useful, (a) on what coordinate should he stand in order to achieve anything that isn't already achievable by the four clones at the corners, (b) how does he then move from there to the doors without making the roaches or golems move, (c) is there an order-of-operations thing regarding the movement of the golems so that the whole system only works if the roaches get in between some pairs and not others, and (d) where should the gap in the golem formation be? Because I'm stuck for ideas.
