You could create a "headless" version of the game that takes map/tools/movelist on stdin and produces the appropriate result on stdout.

The server really should verify robbery movelists, to prevent rule-breaking cheaters.

The sleeping pills seem kinda worthless when for $12 more you can get a crowbar that will do twice the job the pill does.

Crowbars are useless when you have a dog two moves away from you (diagonally adjacent, or one space away). Meat is much cheaper than a gun.

You can edit settings/fullscreen.ini to make it permanent.

Security tapes are only made if a family member is killed or your vault is robbed.

Losing paintings is worse than losing money.

I lost a bunch to a server error-- I had a sequence of landscapes at dawn, noon, sunset, and night that went together perfectly.

My lock relies on electric floors, not thick walls.

Do changes save if you kill a child and then die?

Ethan Robert Burr did the same to me, on an 11-bit combo lock -- $64457 stolen.

The problem is how little information you get from each run of the map, and how many runs it would take to beat.

For blind combination locks (electric floors activate if you go forward with the wrong combo), it's ~2^(N-1) runs, and for sticky unblinded (you can check if the combo is right as you enter it) it's ~2^(N-3).

I have a 5-bit blind combination lock design that costs $1700.

Do you mean buying a map of someone's entire layout?

A smaller amount of information could be given by better tools. A "magnetic flux reader" that tells you how many cells on the map are powered would give you some information about how a combination lock works as you fiddle with it.

Confused by how things interact? This graph should help clear things up:
