What is the slowest solve ever?

Postby ken75 on Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:03 am

I was so bored today that I made this: http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=12013831
And I let it run. It wins after 796 247 ticks. Is there one slower?

zhyrek has one that takes almost 3 million ticks in this ancienct thread:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8824&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=slowest+solves

but you could say yours takes 4 million and I doubt too many people are gonna double check ;)

edit: looks like mtdewd had one that takes 33 million listed there too

I saw this challenge on Junkyard and wondered if I could do it in 2 pieces... so I came up with this. If it ever does solve, I'll bet it takes millions of ticks. http://www.fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=12037723
