Hello, everyone! :mrgreen:

Well, if you haven't read the information above,
then you should know that this is indeed a special adventure, and I recommend reading why. ;)

Here's a fun fact, for all of you! This adventure was actually created shortly before this adventure.
You right now probably are thinking what I wrote:But that was TWO AND A HALF YEARS AGO
Well, yes, it was... and I never uploaded it because I wanted to save it for HOTSP. :lol:

And, frankly, I still very well may add it to HOTSP!

However, I decided that this was an adventure I wanted to share with you all, first-hand.
Especially since there are many, many other concepts and mechanics added in HOTSP, as-is.
As such, I've decided that it's high-time that this adventure was uploaded. :mrgreen:

So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy! :mrgreen:

Adventurer's Note: This adventure was modified more-or-less recently to change "chrimson"
(which should have been crimson) to rainbow.

P.S. Rainbow is in fact not in this adventure, and this is NOT modded.

Here's my video solution! :D

:!: :!: :!: ATTENTION! Do not use the download in this post; a new updated version has come out, which you can download from by scrolling through this thread or clicking >>> HERE <<< :!: :!: :!:

They say on the one non-ridiculous adventure they make. :evil:

Anyhoo I will post my solution half an hour after adventure release because I can.

If you don't want to be spoiled, don't watch the solution video. Also, this adventure just begs for alternate solutions, which this might be, IDK. So, that could be interesting.

OK, well, MWM has found an alternate solution that works on some computers... :oops:

Quite an awkward discovery, actually. :roll:

MWM, how did you make that work? Every time I tried to blink through the orange gates the spell got caught in the first gate and dissipated.

(BTW, I thought that was the intended solution).

Apparently, it works differently on different computers. But the intended solution is based on the fact that it is impossible to do exactly what I did. *shrug*

WA is weird.

Well, if you want to know how to solve this adventure if you do have the glitch,
here's my video solution. :P

Yeah, I thought that was the solution after all, but it seemed too easy to work. Maybe the fact that I skipped the Floing chapter in MoFI altogether when I first played it might explain how I'm really bad at Floing puzzles.

This was a simple one. I completed this with one charge leftover, but it was great fun nonetheless! :)

Welp, many years later, I finally realized what was causing this path I couldn't replicate - and it (perhaps obviously) had nothing to do with computers!

So, as it turns out, magic cast into a floing bubble while you're standing orthagonally adjacent to it is a bit further inside the bubble than magic cast from any further distance (because of how spell generation works). This allows you to basically skip the entire purpose of the left half of the original download :lol:

I've since remade the puzzle. The red button has been removed, and instead a couple of other steps were put in place, but largely the puzzle is the same. I also had to adjust the puzzle on the right to help emphasize this floing-spell proximity feature (as well as possibly remove gate-spelling I didn't test for). In fact, arguably that is a stronger focus of this adventure than what was meant to be the main feature. :roll:

Ah well. The Force of Urxon showcases spell changing a lot more, and at least I got to sneak in one little trick at the end that helps highlight the difference a little. (See if you can spot it ;))

My video solution~

Updated this again... forgot you could do something different at the end @_@ Doesn't affect the main solution at all, just wanted to remove a derp on my end. Fortunately only one person downloaded that version and I know who it was, so :lol:
