I think I need to get the roach queens in reverse movement order. But it just seems like a lot of trial and error. Any hints?

Nope.

Of course we can see that you absolutely can not allow a ny roachlings to be spawned.

I can do both of those, but then I seem to be stuck. One of the roach queens has to drift back to the bottom when I try to get the roach queens to the yellow door, and I always end up one turn away from getting the roach queen at the bottom from not spawning roaches.

EDIT: Solved!

I can't get this done.

I'm having no trouble getting all the roach queens into the last area, but they're not in the right movement order so the pressure plate doesn't get pressed.

How do I get them in the right order?

When I solved the room, just using Larrymurk's hints gave me the right order automatically.

I had them out of order in a number of ways.

But once I figured out

then it was automatic.

Well, it's not doing that for me.

Here's what I'm doing:

"At this point"?

EDIT: Note that I'm assuming that you've been checking carefully at each step and not just noticing at the end.

It gets messed up by the time they're waiting outside the door, and I don't know what order I should be aiming for before then. I've tried several methods and they all have the same basic problem.

Sounds like your order was messed up before then.

There we go. I could swear I'd tried it with the right order at that point and still had it get messed up, maybe I was just misremembering.

Adding one more clarification here: don't be in too much of a hurry to drop the first yellow door. If you do that as soon as
the crowd leaves the northern alcove, then it messes up the #1 #2 #3 roach order.

I have all the queens in order, but still, the fourth one will go to the southern alcove. Supposedly, that's meant to happen, but what gets me confused is that, even if I time it perfectly, either the first queen or the fourth queen will end up spawning regular roaches--the room becomes impossible if that happens, so it's effectively failure or other failure. What am I missing here?

Note that, again, I have the queens in order at the point of the northern alcove.

EDIT: AAAAAAAAAAGH H+S SYNDROME, WHY?! In under a minute, no less?!
