So I looked at the room explaining all the weird scripting quirks in 2S and I think I understand most of them. I seem to be missing the last piece of the puzzle though. It looks like I can get one block to do a force arrow trick and land in (34,24), If I could get the same magic to happen again I could hold down the plate and am pretty sure I'd be done. I can't seem to recreate this though. What's going wrong? Demo is attached.

Sorry for accidentally creating a requirement that I myself would hate. But to be fair, I think it's theoretically possible to see this issue in a room with, say, lemmings or roaches too, just a lot less likely.
