When i try to enter it gives me a numbers and letters and stuff and it tells me to send it to the person doing the contest. How do I do that?

as to the glitching.. The goal ball get's grabbed, and I think weasel mentioned that somewhere in the thread as being a glitch. It 'bounces' in more then halfway and then bounces out on the other side.

Even with my -9 single digit I am very confident there is no prize for me! :(

But I do look forward to seeing how they do it. Which is what I am really looking forward to.

I hope someone puts together a gallery of great designs winning or otherwise. 1 of each type of approach.

For the record my losing -9 total solutions...

krishnaa said he had a hands-off water clean champion. My design there is just hands-off water champion. There is no way to get that with clean, since the rod would have to NOT be attached to the goal piece, therefore unable to manipulate the goal piece at all.

pillageTHENburn wrote:Nice find nathanwitte! I figured this one out just this evening! I wasn't sure if it really was moving them fractions of a pixel or unit or if it just appeared that way... When you say "firefox's zoom" do you mean when you right-click on a flash movie and it gives you the option to zoom in? I think that is an option of Flash not Firefox, though I wouldn't put it past firefox to have such an add-on am I missing out on a bit of firefox awesomeness?


pillage,

the firefox zoom i referred to is done through View>Zoom>Zoom in. It can also be done by holding CTRL and tapping + or by holding CTRL and turning the mouse wheel. for the latter two methods to work, you need to make sure that the flash window (FC) is not the current focus, but rather any html areas are. i think its a recent addition to firefox that the entire page zooms, including the flash windows, not just the text size changing, as i believe it had been in the past.

Hw was talking about brown sticks passing through the goal piece or ground and blue rods passing through the ground or dynamic objects. Things that are not supposed to go through each other. A blue rod is meant to pass through a goal piece, no glitch.
