Alright, that demo worked. Your solution there seems a bit more efficient than mine but is basically the sort of thing I had in mind while building the room :) I suppose if you found doing it that way unfun, though, I could choose not to add the challenge or secret room or whatever...we'll see.

Anyway:
UPDATE:
-Graphics of "NPC Beethro" in TS are now faked to look like regular beethro using screenshotted images. I will ask for permission to do this before sending the hold to HA but I don't foresee this being a problem because seriously, I'm only doing this because of a scripting limitation preventing me from just making a standard-Beethro-appearance character a non-target to monsters.

UPDATE:
-Added a connection between CS 2S1W and CS 3S1W, officially making the latter a secret room. I also added a few lines to both rooms to "explain" the presence of two near-identical rooms and let the player know they can autoclear the former if they do the latter first (at the cost of it definitely not being an optimal demo).
-Also added a line to CS 1W: One of the stalwarts complaining when a puff gets close to them.
-(Both of the above line changes are also now reflected in the updated transcript, attached to the same post as before)
-Added secret room CS 1N, which connects to CS 1W with a small "mimic manipulation" puzzle to reach the secret passageway. 1N reflects the old version of 1W where there were eyes instead of rock golems, and its puzzle is essentially the US that I added rock golems to prevent in that room. I verified that it is indeed solvable.
-Added a few checkpoints.
-Added a challenge to TS 2W reflecting my "originally intended solution". Hopefully the placement of the scrolls shouldn't create a US somehow; there are two of them because the first one warns the player that the second might spoil a solution to some extent (since I think it's a small spoiler that you CAN get a timeclone to take the stick at all).

Negotiator voice acted lines from Facility Depths, Clockwork Basement, Facility Entryway, and Main Laboratories.

Xindaris, please let me know your thoughts & whether I should continue this way or not.

Thank you! Just so you're aware, I won't have time to look over that until a couple of days from now, moving and all. So I'll try to post back with actual response when I have time.

OK.

I figure you can split the audio any way you want, if you want separate files for each line of dialogue.

Alright, I finally had time to listen to the lines. I think overall they're very good, I can certainly use all of these. The only nitpick I might make is some of them sound slightly more tired or less emotive than I had imagined, like Facility Depths 2S2W. But it's not even enough of a complaint to ask for re-recordings of anything.

Is there anything you want particularly emotive? I figured the negotiator is usually a bookish desk worker, so Iím not sure what she gets excited about.

Well, not so much excited, but (for example) surprised/mortified in FD 2S2W at the discovery of toxic green sludge where there used to be water below. Or slightly mischievous in CB Entrance when saying "somebody's been leaving confidential materials in the wrong part of the basement". I feel like I should emphasize again this is more of a nitpick. Like, it is present but it's maybe one notch less than it was in my head.
