Thanx Ian

i've just checked the code and it simply can't.

ianforcer - regarding your question about the bag - no. :)

Meph - I think Dora must be plucking it!

Jamie - That's just devious! ;) Worth a try anyway. So the hammer...

Strange :dizzy_cool:
in theory, i know what has happened here. the eagle picks you up, *but the dizzy hanging on doesn't move*, then the eagle carries you off (not carrying anything) and when it 'dropped' you, you gained control again and got 'another' dizzy.

in practice, that should never happen. it should *always* carry the hanging-on dizzy off. the code simply doesn't allow it to stay there....

hmmmmm there is one small possibility, however you'd have had to have been *very* precise with the timing. *goes to check*

So much for finishing it after solving the eagle puzzle.. :v2_dizzy_confused2:

I've got a feeling my next step is to do with the winch next to the castle moat. :dizzy_confused:

yeah, except i still can't replicate it. what i think you've done is managed to use the golf club *just after* (and i mean literally milli-seconds after) it picked you up.

when it picks you up, it sets the 'dizzy' tile to the hanging on one (and shows it). i think that as you used the club *just after* it picked you up, it then set the dizzy tile it moves to the 'hanging-on with club' one, and moved that one (still invisible, as it 'showed' the other one first), instead of the first one, which was left in mid air.

i'm only guessing here, and i'm not entirely sure that is what has happened, as it should move the player with the eagle anyway, even if it doesn't show you. however i do think it must just be a *split second* that it can happen in, and you've just hit lucky doing it. if anyone else manages to do it too, please let me know what you did, how, and in what order etc, and i'll look into it further.

for the moment tho, i'm treating it as a 'one-off', and hoping that no-one will be able to trigger it again! :P

Cheers Jamie, glad I could add a bit excitment to a really good game :v2_dizzy_clapping:
