If you experience technical problems with any of the puzzles or with the site you can contact Caleb directly at calebgeniesse [at] gmail [dot] com. For bug reports, but as specific as possible (browser information and screenshots are helpful).
there are some issues with the introduction of the "blue glue" function in liquid robotics level 8. While I am familiar with this feature I think new players may be confused with the usefulness of this function. I tried to follow the instructions in this puzzle but I honestly got confused with the directions as to what bases to highlight and what I was expected to observe so I ignored the prompts and solved the puzzle.
Also, when I followed the instructions to "press alt click on these two bases" I get this screen for a second or two http://prntscr.com/a4prt6 then it will go back to normal. that screen would occur every time I tried to use the "blue glue" function
Much like when you put the cursor over the oligos you get a prompt to indicate it is the 'TB-A (@100nM)' etc , it may be helpful for the same effect when you put the cursor over the MS2 hairpin. For new players it may be useful to remind them what is the MS2 hairpin especially when solving the puzzles in the supercomputer level.
None of these do anything, but holding down the shift key turns the pointer from yellow (base colour) to black, though then clicking just turns the black off again.
Control click seems to be the same as 'right click' (two finger click on the trackpad) and brings up the settings etc menu.
I cannot go further in this puzzle without doing the marking, as it won't let me change anything else, and I can't go further in the puzzle progression without solving this puzzle.
reported by two new players and I confirm the same behavior for me
I have had a problem lately. I often get force sent to the new browser.
This is not working for me for several reasons. It gives me extra work on getting back to the classic browser. It was working well for me before when the data browser was an active choice.
I wish to be able to choose. I wish this done smoothly so I don't have to do anything extra, but simply choose which browser to be sent to as a default and it will remember.
The data browser is not yet stable enough to work in plus it is not capable of doing the same things. I want them both. I want the data browser for play, but the legacy browser for work.
We need to have both browsers around, as they are each capable of something special. Both of which we need. And having both around will also get Omei more time to work out the wrinkles.
