Im trying a new level. I know I can probably just make a ramp, but if that doesnt work, maybe try something like this for corners? http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=8784587

Maybe try and have another car go in front of it to fill the last trap and make a bridge?

Under over Up, is still not solved. I just watched the "winning" design for 5000 ticks, and what do i see? The ball fall down to the lower level and roll away. It was a nice attempt, but still no solve. :(

Agreed. zhyrek's tweak of Kalma's design for Under Over Up works for me.

The "It worked on my computer!" phenomenon has been around for a while. It has to do with the processing power of some computers versus others, as well as high-accuracy mice, etc. I think there's even a separate thread for it...

Perhaps the design should be tweaked so it works on all computers. Just an idea.

This design - like many others in the original UM thread - has a very small margin of error. Any tweak will often just break it for somebody else.

Actually (this was an issue in Line Rider communities for a long time) it has something to do with different operating systems (Mac/windows/linux) returning slightly different values in Flash for things such as sin/cos/tan/sqrt/log/etc. that makes for a very large difference in games involving physics (chaos theory :) )

The OS shouldn't matter... Flash should be the same on all systems. It probably has to do more with 16/32/64-bit processors and stuff. For example, our desktop computer runs Mac OS X and Windows XP. I've never seen different results between the two, but my Mac laptop sometimes runs differently.


Digression, digression. ;)

I've only ever noticed this problem in powered solves. Green and brown solves always work but I often see "ipecac" powered solves that just ipecac fail on my computer.

Only way I can see corners being possible is by catapulting :goalc: along with :woodrod: from it's center. Get it to land on the circle in the bottom right corner and hope :dcircle: throws it into the goal. Trying to work on it right now but it's not coming out too hot...
