That is, the challenge in KDD: Twentieth Level: 2N. It doesn't register as complete if the player strikes the southwestern orb on the turn after the room is cleared.

Like, seriously, what's in the scripting for this challenge that would care about that?

It's just a wild guess but, perhaps, the room completed is used with "if" statement which means it registers one turn after you complete the room and the check for orb hit is placed before that check.

Hmm... so it is supposed to be okay if a mimic hits the northernmost orb? Not sure the room can be done that way. Otherwise, that script is too complicated. I'd have just had it monitor one of the doors associated with that orb.

The actual issue here: When the room is clear, the script checks that the player is in the area with the mimic potions, to prevent awarding if the player goes over the trapdoor to the brain (when you can kill all monsters, but not escape).

However, because double placement happens last in a turn, it's possible to kill the brain on the double-placing move, in which case the script won't notice that the room is clear until the next turn -- by which time the player may have moved onto the green door.

This could be fixed by including the green door tile in the rectangle the script checks for, but I don't know whether Caravel intend to maintain any further updates to the official holds.
