Note: I believe you'll need to restore if you enter 1E from the south. I think you must complete it from the west first.

As far as the hold goes, well it is another war hold. No other real problems that I noticed.

I can't even beat the first room on this one. It's obviously possible, but...

The entrance is very hard... unlike many other rooms I test-played in the editor which were easy. All in all this isnt really a good hold because many rooms look quite randomly thrown together. Also the "war" theme is slowly getting old.

about the first room,
Click here to view the secret text

it wont be too hard.

if you enter 1E before the job is done, there is no backtrack. this is why when making linear, 'green door' rooms, you cant get it wrong. :? O:- :glasses :huh :huh -_-

at the last room you can just strike the beast, alas, instead of
wisely using the magnets.

i played a lot of drod, more than other games. but it seems that the real creation is in the levels themselves. if the solution is straightforward, you question yourself why they were even made. if its tough, but not weary, it is art.

I realized this weekend that was the only War hold I hadn't finished yet, so I set to finish it.

This is perhaps the hardest group of rooms for one of your holds, but also the most buggy (which is surprising, as I don't recall any of your other holds having any issues). Once you leave 1E to the east, you can't return. Same with 4E. Also if you solve 2E and then exit to the west you can't return and go to the east.

I got to the very end of the level and only then realized I hadn't done 2S or 2S1E. I couldn't backtrack because of the above mentioned problems, so after restoring and solving the two rooms I missed, I then had to replay 8! rooms to exit the hold. :thumbsdown :no

I've enjoyed these holds for the most part, but try to keep these sorts of problems out of them in the future, OK? :thumbsup

Have a point for the math joke. Now, I'm glad I censored myself a bit on the exclamation marks. When I first typed that I had about four or five of them after the 8- now that would've been a lot of rooms... (of course 40,320 rooms is nothing to sneeze at either;) )

It surprises me too, and yet, you manage it.

Important threads to read:

Pay attention to what makes a hold fun to play, not just what's possible to do with scripting.
