Sigh. I don't have any ideas on how to solve the room. I guess that I have to make a labyrinth of sorts? And use the soldier to lead the roach, but at the same time have the roach kill them? and then go to me, so I can push it to the forced arrow or what?

Your posts inspired me to try this hold myself. And after 4 days of work, I've caught up to you.

First hint for this room:

This hint is kinda misleading, but it did inspire me to try something:

It's a good hold, albeit some of the puzzles look scary at first

Was that hint intended for 1N1W? You can't kill roaches here before hitting the orb.

Yup, wrong thread, sorry :blush

and since we are here, any chance for a more spoilery hint in regards to some details?

The room north of here was much easier than expected. I think I did it on my first try (with lots of undo, of course).

I'd hate to see anyone try this hold without unlimited undo.

Nope, that doesn't give me any ideas. I tried different settings, but the room is really technical to the fault. The best I do is when I set the two soldiers "hugging" each other, but it's far from helping me to complete the room. It's not a matter of vagueness, but rather the setting of the soldiers. Or maybe I just have a completely different concept

Also, I agree about the unlimited movement. Without that I doubt I wouldn't go far in DROD

Thanks man, I don't think I would beat it on my own.

I did try something similar to this, but it failed, because I placed the soldier in different place, so I guess that's why I didn't try it further.
