When going for the challenge, this room starts to feel like a horrible mess. Hope that wasn't too harsh, because the rest of the rooms were great!

Anyway, consider this a grumpy request for the 5-switch challenge solution.

Wow, that's an interesting bug you found there... If you have a demo for this, perhaps you could share it via pm? I'll see if this is fixable. Not that it influences gameplay, but still...

Regarding the challenge: DF have some good hints. Perhaps as a small addition to make it extra-explicit:

I can't even figure out how to do this with 8 tokens. For the sake of the challenge though, how do I do that 5-token run? I do know the first 4 tokens and I could probably infer the fifth, but I'd appreciate a demo because... I can't figure out the timings as to WHEN.

Bump. This is basically my last room here, so help would be appreciated...

The general strategy is to keep the number of monsters under control. So each time roaches are spawn, try to kill the queen, or get rid of the roaches.
So: don't let a monster enter the niches without hot tiles. Only do this if you actually need this niche for your path towards the top plate.

To get you started: here's my beginning sequence

Repeat steps like this until you're done :)

Hope this helps a bit. Don't have a demo available right here and now, but could send one over if needed.
