Stuck magnet?

Postby AlistairN » Mon Feb 15, 2010 1:14 am

I hope I'm not making any spoilers as I have yet to open the NKryptor, but here are my observations:

I have got my NKryptor, and I can see there are 3 rods through the gap between the layers.

I have managed to shift the rod closest to the edge out of the way (and placed a piece of paper in the way so it hopefully wont go back into locked position).

However, I cant get the middle or deepest set ones to move at all!

From other puzzles, I understand the possibility of magnets involved and see they have differing magnetic polarities for each rod.

Could it be mine is stuck or is my magnet not strong enough. I am only using a small magnet that I got from taking apart a spare cupboard door catch. Unfortunately, as it is rectangular, it has left some small indentations on the surfaces.

I have noticed when rocking on a horizontal axis, there is some internal movement, but not sure if this is one of the rods or the electronics/PCB?

Any info would be gratefully received :)

From what I can see/move on mine the central rod seems to be very firmly stuck. I've tried 'persuading' it but at what point does it just become abuse? :)

No, I'm not stuck, but I certainly have been. Where have you become stuck in GS 1 or 2?

My first time through I totally ran past the temple that grants the Lash Pebble and so I was stuck at the following bridge.
