Callahan Bounty

So I just dropped a 15k bounty in Callahan.  Enjoy!

I can't believe I did that - I walked through a door that I knew full well had a dog that had seen me behind it. 

Sorry guys, the puzzle pit maze is no more....

Re: Callahan Bounty

Lol! I saw your attempts to zero in on the details of my self test access; however, I have altered them while making it more difficult to determine them so cheaply.  Why not just take a wild guess or saw your way around 5 or so powered doors?  That is, after all, the way my map is intended to be played!  Please, do not try to solve my map another way neighbors, or I will reek vengeance upon these households!

And if you should solve it correctly or not, I promise to rise again like the phoenix from the ashes with a new combo lock design that will have you completely and utterly befuddled!

Re: Callahan Bounty

haha aw man how did you know 25 steps?  My guess is you assumed I did not change the timing from your previous visit and you had mapped the wife path out on castledraft or something.

The weekend's nearly over, so I figured why not just guess? I knew you had 25 steps from before, and guessed that you didn't change it. I knew that the first two buttons had to be pressed, and guessed that the other one didn't. And, luckily, I was right.

Re: Callahan Bounty

Ya done good blip.  What I think drives me nuts the most is I really WANTED somebody to saw to the bottom right to find nothing, then have to saw back up to the top on a separate visit.  You ALWAYS seem to find the weakest points to my maps.  I had planned to use a single bit clock somehow to make it so that if you used an odd number of tools, solving it without brute force would be impossible, but I will probably work that into a future design as I wished to see how it would fall exactly. 

In retrospect, it would have been more effective to use a one time activation clock with like 64 steps or something, requiring the commit button be pressed on step 64.  I pretty much always know you are going to solve it, the question is how to make it more difficult for you.

I have a plan for my next map that should, in theory, slow you down.

By the way, did you happen to get Malone?  I swear I was just about to get that.

The thing with this map was that it was so much cheaper for me to go to all of the trouble for a no-tool solution as opposed to brute-forcing it. I bet that some more dogs in the walls should have helped with that - I was able to find the solution by simply doing the obvious thing of cutting along wires.

Very true, but I honestly didn't think you'd be able to get the timing right on the first try, but I admit if you'd been castle drafting, 25 was fairly predictable.  The thing is, I never really go through the trouble of castle drafting.

Re: Callahan Bounty

@GotABigTrap can you show us the map now it's solved?  I'd be interested to take a look at it.
