Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you are immediately led to a rotating platform. Currently the side facing the entrance the right side of the platform are accessible. To the right is a room with an RGB converter and a red emitter. If you rotate the platform, you can get access to the left room, which has an inverter and a blue emitter. Straight ahead is another area where a connector is present, and there are two receivers, a blue and a green one, that give access to the progress wheel.


The rules of rotating platforms:

[ hint ]
This puzzle introduces you to rotating platforms. They come with two switches, one of them turns the platform clockwise, and the other rotates it counter clockwise. The platform typically has different access restrictions on different sides, some being open, some having a grate, some may have a window, and you will have to decide which side is most useful to point to which room at this stage of the puzzle.

A basic hint:

[ hint ]
The rotating platform will always be blocking one of the emitters, so you need to think which one you’ll need. The other is a red herring.
