I'm stuck in this room: I can't get the roaches onto the pressure plates in the middle and lower right sections.

In the middle section I can get it to the square above the plate (while Beethro stands on the other prong of the floating platform), while in the lower right I can get to the plate with Beethro, but I can't switch places with the roach.

Any tips?

While this room was quite challenging, I found that it became a lot simpler when I realised

Did you manage it with 1? I can't see how it's possible. And I can't get platform 2 into that same spot.

Oh wow, that's indeed very clever once I've finally figured out what that pattern means (and similar ones all over the hold). :thumbsup

edit2: nvm, figured it out. That's some tough movement...my brain hurts :)

Tried this room before and I was just going circles with the northern middle PP. Tried the T-shape and the Plus-shape.

With the plus shape I can nearly do it but I didn't find a way to push the roach on the PP.

And with the T-shape I'm not able to outmaneuver the roach to even got the the PP.

How can you do it with the T-shape?

edit: I'm also able to get the T-shape to the middle northern PP but again, no way to get roach on the PP. Was at the bottom of the T-shape. Maybe that's it.

Yes, you need to be at the top of the T-shape. The key move is:

There's only one direction the platform can move -- east.

Seeding grounds still has three question marks.

Do I have to solve this room?

I've managed to get all the roaches except the one at 7. I can get the roach to the PP on the platform but can't get it on the PP.

Which platform do you use for 7?

I used platform 4 (the east most platform) to get to PP 7 (the NE PP). It's the only platform that won't fit the other PP or am I missing something?

No, that platform works.

Hard to give hints rather than direct moves:

I need a little more help with finding the pathway to this room. I see the four shapes with the fuse circles. It resembles the number 5 to me, missing it?

on this room now for 3weeks[ my "stickman-ship" is quite bad]. I have gotten the plus sign with roach to NW corner, can get square to NE corner can knock roach to pressure plate but cannot get square moved away in time. I cannot even get corners turned with other shapes. I need a demo or partial showing roach manipulation.:(:(

For the NE corner, the hint you need is further up this topic.

Here's a partial demo showing how to do the SE corner with the T-shape.
