I'm stuck on the level Fourty-Two. No matter which combination I try, I just can't seem to solve this thing. Help!

Positions of the stones you drop correspond to positions of the stones falling at the top. Dropping stones in the same position on both left and right sides makes the corresponding bit in the answer shift by 1 position. I don't remember the answer, but it's not too hard to figure out (if you don't play in hard mode) if you do a couple experiments to see what dropping individual stones (or pairs of stones from both left and right) does. If you want the exact answer, I'll look it up.

Be careful with a word, as you would with a sword,
For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

Thanks for the tip, but I still can't figure it out. What's the exact answer?

It turns out I was thinking of the wrong level. In this one, the answer is to drop 4 stones on the left and 2 on the right, putting them over holes in leftmost positions of corresponding sections. If that still doesn't make sence, I can e-mail you my replay of the level.

I don't want to start a new thread, but I have a question.
I'm trying to play the 2004 contest set, but I can get past the introduction screen. Am I just missing something?

Thanks, I got past it.

I noticed that too, on the 2004 pack.

You can bypass the 2004 intro level via a cheat code. Go over to the level you want to play, hold ctrl and type in 'wendigo' without the quotes. It doesn't affect your high score because you have to do the levels anyway, it just affects what order you do them in.

While we're on the subject of cheat codes, I can't seem to get the DaVinchi code to work.

Do you mean DaVinci, not DaVinchi?

This has since been fixed, by the way. Download the levelpack for 2006 to get the fix.
