I believe the wiring description for the xor is incorrect on the wiki. Exclusive or is one or the other but not both. Now if I can remember how digital logic math works I can start designing some interesting traps.

Fixed the description.  Also noticed that the top pictures in OR and AND were backwards, so I fixed those.

Doh!  good catch. I noticed the OR image was wrong just before adding the "safe" version, but must have forgotten to go back and fix the others.

I have no excuse for the XOR goof, other than it's been +15 years since I learned logic gates in school.

Great stuff guys!  I've taken the liberty of adding them to the "Advanced" section of the wiki.

I haven't made it past "starter money" si my designs are based on about $1000.

I've taken a more "rules based" approach to my designs.  For example, my current house uses red lights to indicate where to step (and green will equal death later).  Obviously about a third of the way through the rules reverse, but only after a visible example of the change.  wink

I love the use of "hidden" chihuahuas to follow on the other side of walls stepping on switches.  I use them to guide the robber with lights to "danger zones". Watching tapes, it is quite effective at unnerving the robber.  Nothing like seeing a light turn on without your intervention.  smile

I just added the "trap" components to the wiring section as well to clarify how power propagates through the various components.  As far as I know, only the Electric Floor/Grate is conductive.

Good to know it's not just us newbies that get tripped up.

I also tweaked the "Steel Wall" description a bit.  Watching earlier "Let's Play" videos I tried using them as wires and couldn't figure out why my circuits didn't work.  Does anyone know the exact version that steel walls where changed to non-conductive?

Okay, based on the number of times I've opened this thread to find the basic logic gates (AND, OR, etc), I've decided to start adding screenshots and content to the Wiki Wiring section.

(Full Disclosure: I bought the game Thursday, so I haven't even been playing a week - I may have screwed up some of the logic... but it's a start).

Jason & vetrans, please take a look and edit it if I've added something that should be tribal knowledge or obfuscated.
