In the first level, it seems to me that there's no way to get to 1S 2E once you've entered 2S. Is this right?

Did you mean 2S 1E?

There is - go the other way around.

Oh, and sims, you left the "Anyone Edit" status on.

Actually, you can update the hold in your profile. Go to your profile, click "Modify", "My Holds", and then "Upload a new version". It's still pickier than it should be and will have problems if you've copied and pasted levels around, but for a simple anyone edit change it should work fine.

I like this hold so far but I am having trouble in "getting darker". I can't open the door to go south from the entrance, so going the other way,after the eclipse (AKA 1N) and 1N 1E, I can't get past 1E. If I clear all the traps to try to go north, I can't find any breakable walls, and If I break the wall and exit to 1S 1E, I can't get past the force arrows. Also in 1S 1E I can't read the first scroll. I have been stuck in here for 3 days and need a hint please.

This hold is not possible in its current format. It is not possible to complete 'Getting Darker'.

Perhaps the version which is on Caravel.net is wrong?

The problem outlined above (that you have to redo the majority of 'into the light' if you go south too soon) has not been fixed, and the demo mentioned above (which says there are more crumbly walls than there actually are in the hold) will not import because it is for a different version of the hold.

I've just started to play this hold and I can say that "Getting Darker" is conquerable, but "In the light" remained like it was years ago, if you make the wrong choice it could be necessary to backtrack in order to complete the level.

Conquered. There are some rooms I liked, but also many more which were just boring or frustrating (for example in level 3 a room full of enemies and no checkpoints at all), and there are many backtracking issues too. If the architect had spent more time on it, with more patience, this could have been quite better.
