You're right, but what's your point? And why in the world are you putting up screenshots? You should only do that when you need them in order to explain something, not just as illustrations to what you're saying.

Easier to do what? All it does is make the entire thread harder to read, AND it may spoil the fun for people who don't want to know in advance what the rooms look like and just want to download them.

Putting room screenshots in hint discussions, or when there's something wrong with the room, is a good idea - but otherwise, it's usually not. And if you really want to have a referrence, use the option to insert the image as a link - that way, it doesn't take up space, and anyone who doesn't want to look at it can't do so accidentally.

I love this hold, and I've finally reached the one-room-to-complete stage. Unfortunately, it's 3E. I've read the hint scrolls (and the hidden one too) and I've got no idea at all!

Can someone suggest some hints?

This is a known bug that is fixed with the latest patch. Try exporting your player, deleting both player and hold, and re-importing. Alternatively, export all players, re-install, re-import all holds and then all player files.

I finished this hold this morning... a lot of fun, learned something new about invisibility potions... But my version of DROD is definitely the newest (loony labyrinth killed my old version) and thus should have the exit stair bug fixed, alas, the stairs took me back to the beginning. I am thus forced to conclude that these stairs are actually misassigned... or perhaps not... Perhaps someone could inform me otherwise?

I think this hold might be afflicted with the bug generally like Treasure Hunt was -- I'll see about uploading a fresh one.

Great hold.
This was my first hold and I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to trying others.
I was thrown by the shadow that was not explained until I got to the potion jar. I had never seen reversed invisibility. There was nothing in the help that I could find so it was just experimentation :?
Also that last room with the number sequence, that was a confusing room. The clues threw me off actually. I didn't count what the secret message said to count so I didn't know where to start. Glad for the forum or I would have been rating this a 2 out of furstration :no
Thanks for all the hard work you put into the project, I will be looking for other holds you develope :D

While I'm here, I should mention I have been trying to fix the stairs in this hold, but every time I try to export DROD reports the file is corrupted. So it looks like I have to reverse-engineer the original back to 'Anybody Edit' to get access and I haven't managed that yet. My apologies for the delay.

I sent you a PM with the edit privlages changed, and the stair bug fixed.

Note:I will not hack the edit privlages on a hold you don't own. Please, everyone, don't ask.

Thanks to patmo98 I have uploaded the stair-fixed version of this hold to the top of the thread. I have kept the Anybody Edit flag on for this one because so many people have finished the hold already (and hit the bug). I figure there's no need to force anyone to repeat the hold.

I have the same problem that others mentioned above. I've completed the hold, I go down the stairs, and I'm back at the beginning. How can I save my score and update the hold? I can't import it, as the system ignores the command; but if I delete the existing hold, I lose all my progress.

If I knew what you were supposed to say, I wouldn't need to ask! I've completed the hold, but my statistics won't update. It appears as an uncompleted hold, in which I have conquered 100% of the rooms. I seem to have the same problem that AgentIcarus and Drizzo mention above, and I was asking how to resolve it.

You should first export your saves (from the change player screen). Then, delete the hold, reimport the hold, and reimport your saves.

This is a hold I downloaded in my early DROD days. It was too hard for me then, but now that I know more about movement behavior it is a fun hold.
