I wondered if that might be the case. Well, good way to get a low rating, I'm afraid.

Second entry attached. It's, well, it's a cheap trick. There's scripting, but it's all clearly explained: no tricks there.

Since everyone else seems to be having so much fun, I have decided to come out of retirement and throw this little hold into the mix.

All that needs to be asked is if it is possible or impossible?

:devil

No scripting or fancy lighting used here. This is good old fashioned cheapness.

Edit : Now modified to include hints and solution for the weak of mind.

Steve.

Is the trick here that the solution scrolls are actually lying?


I figured out the problem. The hold was made in 3.0.2 and wasn't converted, so the scripted character with the "Set player Role" command is blank. :(

Other than the fact that I forgot to convert it, which I am not sure of how to do...

I feel I can come up with a cheaper trick, so will be submitting a second hold once I make it.

Heya Jacob. Solving holds without looking at their solutions until after you've solved them is wonderful, isn't it?

Attached is a solution to your second hold that is not what you outlined in your solution scrolls.

The room is actually pretty decently difficult, but not cheap, without executing it your way, so I was surprised.

And similarly, Jdyers Color Dilemma also has a non-cheap solution that's not descibed in the hints. Attached is a demo for the puzzle room.

Second entry for me. (Still my first contest.)

Again, I haven't attempted to look at all the entries so far, so any duplication of others' ideas is purely coincidental.

EDIT: v02 attached - Fixed unintended solution (I hope). Thx, Tim.

All right, here is the converted form for my first one.

I will be placing two more posts after this for my next entry, one for the converted hold, and one for the original, for my second entry.

Color Dilemma v. 2 still seems to have an unintended solution in it.

Here's how I managed to get through without finding that

Well, except if I'm not mistaken, 3.0.2r2 is incapable of importing its own script format. So users of 3.0.2r2 should also download the 3.0.0 version, and there's no reason to post the other one.

mutter mutter there was no reason to post the first one mutter mutter

Er, what I mean is: everyone has their own taste in cheap tricks. "Guess the scripting" is not mine.
