Title: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Player on February 14, 2016, 12:27:36 PM
Using this post to track my progress on raping this map since it's so hard to beat. Blid pointed me to its existence here: http://war2.warcraft.org/puds/puzzle.shtml. (http://war2.warcraft.org/puds/puzzle.shtml) The objective is to get from the green circle to the yellow circle without cheating.  I have warvids of every section completed so far but don't want to ruin the fun for others by posting just yet.

Green circle = Start
Yellow line = Day 1
Light blue line = Day 2
Orange line = Day 3/4
Blue line = Day 5
Pink line = Day 6
Red circle = Current position (completed)

Update 1: Played on two seperate days for a few hours on each day.
Update 2: 2/15 Played a few hours. I have an idea of what I want to do to pass the first part of section 5, but couldn't execute because the footman is a hacker.
Update 3: 2/16 Got through the first portion of section 5.  Tried the next portion but so far it's bs.
Update 4: 2/16 Ended up ez'ing the second part of section 5.
Update 5: 2/29 Had some time to play today and moved through the start of section 6.
Update 6: 3/1 Moved through the next two portions of section 6 and first part of section 7.
Update 7: 3/1 Map raped. gg no re ss taken warvid recorded posted on forum.
Final Update: Solution video - https://youtu.be/wyyig1drI7A (https://youtu.be/wyyig1drI7A)

Not yet, still working on it. I played for like 2 hours yesterday, but I'm stuck in the current section due to the footman and towers hacking.

Beat the hacker footman but this next piece is even more bs.  We'll see how it goes.

I don't want to play War2. So you guys will just need to trust me.

If u do it in 1 try without using "on screen" I actually will give you that $2700 that you always try to bet people with.
Title: Re: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Player on February 29, 2016, 07:38:33 PM
haha, called out hard.  Good wager, he'd never be able to do it in 1 try with or without on screen.

Escrow.com?
Title: Re: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Player on February 29, 2016, 10:23:26 PM
No point in wasting money on an escrow fee, you wouldn't get past the first 2 sections of the map in 1 try.
Title: Re: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Swift on February 29, 2016, 10:35:27 PM
I guarantee that I'll beat it in one try. Escrow Tora?

Escrow.com?

I just looked it up they charge a $180 fee, so no.
 Just log onto the client and pm me when you plan to do it and stream it live on twich. If in fact you do complete the whole map in one try i'll send it to you via paypal.

Host it single player with default settings, and then type "on screen" - you're supposed to be able to see the map so you can see the puzzles.  The goal is to get from the start of the map to the end by solving each puzzle along the way.  You can save periodically to assist your progress

And not supposed to build walls anyway!
Title: Re: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Knitter on March 01, 2016, 01:08:35 PM
Thats weird because i managed the first section by biulding walls  ;D ;D
And now ur telling me i cant use them.. haha i feel so helpless now.
Title: Re: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Player on March 01, 2016, 01:36:17 PM
Yeah, create the game in single-player with default settings and the map won't let you build walls.  That's what makes it challenging.
Title: Re: DKPuzzle.pud Challenge
Post by: Player on March 01, 2016, 03:39:14 PM
Just passed the first two parts of section 6.  The things you have to come up with and do to get past these pieces is hiliarious.

what happened on the dashed part of that lien?

You have to reach certain points in order to be able to continue to progress in a different part of the map.  The dashes indicate that transition. For example, I had to reach the farms first (end of orange line) in order to continue where the solid blue line starts (peon + rax there, need grunts to hop peon and continue).
