this is the room that you have the \"snake time limit\" i been stuck here the past 3 days. does any one have any tips? i read the tips in the tips section of drod.net but they didnt help at all i ll get the queen stuck in the square i m supposed to but then when i move back over to try and kill her after hitting the southwest switch, her minions move out of the way and she goes to the top of the chamber thus taking more moves so i cant get back to the bugs in the blocked chambers before the snake dies.

any help would b appreciated

Ok well several points.

Snake timer - i've been pratting around for ages since it died and nothings happened. What/why do I have to do before it dies?

Queen roach - where in hell am I supposed to get it? I've been running round after it and cant trap the little sod :(


Edit: Ok I beat it, thanks for the hints they really helped. Would delete this post but it wont go. Cheers!

I can get there with about 120 moves to spare.

Well, yes, but I was assuming that on a first time through you'd probably waste a fair few moves...

I usually catch the roach queen in her upper-left chamber, just out of habit. End up getting to the snake with about 14 moves left.

When I played Level 7 I did all the rooms except this one and I was allowed to exit? Why is this possible?

Holy moly...a quintuple post! Congratulations, you've beaten everyone else so far!

Now, returning to your five-part question, when I check this room out in the Editor, it is marked as "Not required". I think this is because it might be considered too hard for this early in the dungeon. Or it could be a simple mistake. There were full levels where none of the rooms were required but those were fixed in the Caravel release.

Game on,

Oh, is that why the blue door wasn't present on that level? I never saw it say "Exit Level" in Webfoot, I assumed the blue door was just forgotten.

When I first played this room, I had a really slow computer, and it was almost impossible to time the wait.

I usually end with about 20 moves left.

Being a turn-based game, you're gonna have to explain this one...

Every time I pressed a key, it took about two seconds for the computer to respond. I kept pressing "5" one too many or too few times, and there was no idea if I hadn't pressed enough.

This ain't something we want to have people competing over. I've deleted four of the posts in my power-mad spree.

I notice the offender(?) still has 9 posts listed. Has he made 4 more, or is this a bug?

This is a bug. I'll need to change his post count by hand.

Indeed. I noticed this a while ago - it actually takes a post away from whoever deletes the post, not from who posted it. Only an issue when a moderator deletes someone else's post.

We've seen enough of these post count bugs that what I really need to do is write something that occasionally goes through, counts all posts by all users, and fixes any that are wrong. It could also fix each thread's reply count, as that also gets screwed up for one reason or another.

How did you know that? It isn't possible to look at that... or is it......

Once you beat Dugan's you can look at everything in the editor that comes with version 1.6, the Architect's Edition. One of the things you can see in the editor is whether or not a room is required to remove the blue door at the end of a level.

Game on,
