A couple of puzzles...

faster than the speed of light:xidoxas

anti sign madness:zyzulym

mod 5:xynorud

just a gate:feginor.

my "tutorial": duzamah
solution: fobobuk
easy ones for fobobuk: semipus
medium/hard ones for fobobuk: hynofut

crucial timing:
kozamus
 Check your solution with all values of the random crate, for E it's quite hard! Please don't post your solutions though, I want everyone to figure it out themselves. Just say "I solved it Grin" or something like that.

BTW, what are those stars and words by our usernames Huh

sorry for double posting but..
I just figured out that this forum is hosted in Spain, or somewhere in that longitude line.
That's all.

xidoxas:xofirah.  Even faster speeds are possible, but not in such a confined space. (see vacomid for 0 crates and sycubok for other crate numbers).  I believe 2 blocks per turn is the maximum speed that crate-ness can travel.

That is the most ingenious method of solving an impossible puzzle that I have ever seen.

Faster than the speed of light: xidoxas: Nope, not yet...
Anti signs are soooooo evil: zyzulym: zenykon
Mod 5: konetod: jicexeb I think I missed the point of this level. I noticed the top section often became jammed if none of the random crates were 4 or less.

Anti signs are sooooo evil: pusonod
Mod 5: gygubum <- I didn't really understand the purpose of this one either.

Here's a simplified version of the second one. gyzogad

Oops,  I didn't realize you could solve konetod that way...

Well, here is konetod... FIXED! xynorud
Three boxes, all labeled 0-4, come out of the pipe, and you have a 5. I guess you would:
---SPOILER---


A: check for 0's, and if there are any, put them on the screen
B: If there are no 0's, check for repeats, and subtract them to get a 0
C: Check for 1+4's and 2+3's, add them, subtract the 5, and get a 0

It is always possible, as you can always add some of 3 numbers together to get a number that is 0 mod 5...

By the way, nice job with zyzulym, I thought that would be hard to figure out... it should be filed under "Bug Support".

Solution for Mod 5 (xynorud): dyralum.  I basically followed your spoiler strategy.  It has worked the last dozen or so times in a row...

As for zyzulym, there have already been puzzles like that.  That's probably why people got it so quickly.  I think it is a feature, not a bug.  Smiley

Here's what I've got so far for "just a gate" (feginor): redehag.
Takes 31 ticks at $507, so 31*(507-200)=9517
Edit: what was I thinking?
seluhan takes 30 ticks at $294 so 30*(294-200)=2820

For Feginor, sidexar costs $297 in 28 ticks -- 97 x 28 = 2716.

Edit: I've just now looked at seluhan. I knew you must have had a similar solution. I was down to $302 in 29 ticks, which was not good enough, and I was trying to imagine what you could be doing differently, and then I came upon <snip> (Re-edit: I decided that this was too much of a spoiler).

Solution to "Just a gate" (feginor): dyfufil

Using the old trick to keep the ? intact, gives
money score: 733 - 200 = 533
time score:                       25

total score: 533 * 25 = 13325

What was the price again?  Wink

EDIT: just saw the other solutions. I guess those copiers are pretty expensive....   Sad
