Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle, you see two RGB converters, a set of red and blue emitters on the back wall, and a red receiver that gives access to the next room. The next room has another pair of RGB Converters, and a set of blue and red receivers that both need to be activated to get to the progress wheel.

If you're stuck near the end of the puzzle:

[ hint ]
Instead of trying to create light of a particular color straight from the source, try to see if creating it from another RGB Converter helps avoid intersecting beams.
