An alternative to the Stupid deaths thread, this thread is designated to stupid cooks. Inspired by Michael for me to make this topic :)

Old Frog is a one star level.



Anyways, let's start off with this...

Lol, you'll like my Let's Play of the first level of CCLP3. :P

Yeah I don't mind "cheap" screws if they are only a few seconds into the level and can be avoided once you learn it.

 

This one though...

My CCLP1 submissions. I'm going through and making difficulty adjustments. This is an obvious enough cook ahead of time that I'm going to leave it in.

 

With this level, I need to add more time and find a way to make the begining more intuitive.

There's nothing skillful about randomness... The walker cloner is ONE STAR in the middle of an otherwise five star level.

The red button 1D 1L controls the tank cloner, and 1U from the tank cloner is another red button controlling the block cloner. But I think I forgot to do something.

Yep. You forgot to open the yellow door. :)

It would not have happened if I had not been attempting to optimize it. It doesn't happen when you're trying to beat the level normally.

Yep, this is a double post. Totally worth it, because of this:

It doesn't look so bad, until you realize you need to get a block through that.

I must fix that. Because this cook is *priceless*. What are the odds of this? One in a million?

Couldn't you hurry up and push the block up 1 space to prevent the fireball from drowning, then press the brown button yourself to release the blob, and hope it wanders into the water or out of the room without colliding with you or the fireball? The level may not be cooked yet...

 

But still, that's pretty ridiculous what happened there. Was this bad luck or did you let this happen on purpose?

Yes, I could have salvaged it with some luck if I was not busy laughing my arse off.

But it still wasn't guaranteed to be cooked...

Surely you tried releasing the blob, hoping that it would wander onto the trap button?

(And even if not, there was still one blob spare...)

And would perfect co-operation from a blob be able to beat the bold route?

No, I was too busy laughing. So when the fireball hit the trap button it moved left and down and then meandered around for a moment and killed me.

 

Someone should test if this can beat the bold route on a derandomized setup.

I don't think it would...it only takes 8 extra steps to get the block into position (as opposed to heading straight to the trap), and the blob wouldn't be able to follow Chip and hit the button quicker than that... Unless you have to wait a while for the fireball to come back around (I'm not familiar with the timing of the bold route), but it still seems like the blob would still be slower... How long had you been in the final room before the blob made it to the trap?

Funny how this is pretty much exactly the same conversation we had on the chat two days ago!

It looks to me like the blob can only help score the same time as the current bold (if the parity works out nicely), In lynx, however, the situation might be different, but it's really hard to play the level perfectly up to that point so it's not easy to know for sure.

 

And to keep this on topic, here are two cooks I had already posted in the gallery:

MT 2012 Ida4 018 Steel.Rain.Trap

MT 2012 Ordeal trap

The first one is a very unlikely event, as there are blobs controlling how many gliders are cloned to come down in each column, and in this case a difference of one less or one more glider in any of the columns would have been enough not to not cook the level.

For the second one, the mistake was all mine. I cloned a glider (not pictured any longer) that then toggled the walls, after I had entered this confined space.

I had 50+ cooks on Mudpie (CCLP3 level 142). I never thought to upload any here though :( The best of which were issues with dirt blocking the block at the very end in the recessed wall/bomb section :P

One from my custom set:

The trap is held open by a block, and I do not have suction boots.

Have you tried holding D on the FF's?

ONE STAR screw. Only because I've done that myself and know how frustrating it was.

 

I've done the same thing too. (N)

Stupid Bugs


A bug was meant to hit these trap buttons. However, I cloned one too many earlier on. As such, I got two bugs stuck in a loop.

If there is slide delay somewhere else you could pull a Dirty Trick on it.

No suction boots or flippers. I did, however, have six yellow keys.

This is not my first cook in Hypercomplex Maze, nor will it be the last.

 

U3EYM.png

 

A double whammy! Not only did I miss a block in the fire boots phase, I missed the block right above it in the flippers phase!

 

I think HCMaze is not so much a level with a few potential stupid cooks in it, as a mass of stupid cooks with a little level around it....

But Michael and I continue to plug away at it together, regardless....

Don't push yourself too hard on that level. But trying to solve it slowly can cause the time limit to troll you to the highest rage possible.
