In found a Color Puzzle technique that works for me for once.

    So I took the time to drag each color gem into a hotbar, this way when the gem turns color that slot will highlight. I then put another bar below with the coresponding opposite color, I am using the Decors Iconset, it can be found in the Enahanced Forum if you like. This works really well for me, the issue is making the bar up. Pic looks like this:

    I am trying to find a way to set up referance spots, but I cannot figure out how to store a tile in "cursor target stored". Although I think this can be done with UOA.

    Could this be considered cheating? If all you have to do is click the icon that changes color that makes the puzzle insanely easy.

    How would it be cheating? I am useing the system as it was designed. To be cheating would to make up a script that would move you around based on the name change.

    The difficulty in the puzzle is processing the information you are given and acting upon it. If you turn it into a simple matter of pressing a button when it lights up, that removes all the challenge.

    Well you are really only cheating yourself if you look at UOGuide for a puzzle solution. The daily puzzle is ridiculously hard. Those puzzles were meant to completely stump players. Solving them meant saving the shard during the Golem Scenario 8 years ago.

    Lucky you!
    I never made it into the last room. I gave up on this Experimental Room puzzle, har har! A pirate probably lacks patience.

    Hmm not really, the challenge is still there for those who like the challenge. I had some problems with it and am looking for a solution to make it more easier, which is my challenging part. I still have not found a way to make it one button though. Innovation is the work of the lazy.

    He's not doing anything that actually affects the gem himself... he apparently can't remember the opposite for whatever color the gem turns (after a couple of times, it should be rote memory, but to each their own).

    He still has to move around the room... there's no button click that will do that for you. The icon bar he's displaying simply highlights when the gem is one color, and then beneath it, it tells him what color to go to.

    Inventive. In my case, completely unnecessary, but inventive.

    Personally... I find it a better idea to just sell the experimental gem and let others have fun with the extra chance at the rooms
