New creature capture guides

#1The FloodPosted 7/27/2008 1:03:17 AM
First things first. I cannot seem to get a capture puzzle for a Pegasus or a Master Thief no matter how many times I beat them in quick match, cause I can't get them to spawn on the map. If you're looking for that then sorry, I can't wait on the rest of this stuff while I beat the game again. If you can capture them by beating them in quick match first, then on the map, hopefully somebody will add the solutions to this.

Second, there was a ton of transcribing involved and I could very easily have missed a step or kicked a number. If a solution doesn't work, lemme know or post a fixed version. Read this whole thread before starting, in case I screwed up and somebody already caught it.

The notation is based on the maps here on Gamefaqs map/guides for the original game. The grid is 8x8, A-H is side to side, 1-8 is up and down. A1 is top left and H8 is bottom right.

Great post, thanks. Is anyone moving this to the Cheats or FAQs section?

No need. It's always going to be here.

True. That's why I didn't mention a sticky, cause a bump every week and a half should keep this near the top.

However, if anyone out there has the ability to capture the puzzles and make a graphic FAQ like the ones we had for the first games, you're more than welcome to do so. My only graphic program is MS paint.

Okay, here's a revised solution to the Plague Witch. I wasn't happy with the first one, cause it had too many random moves on the outside of the mass. This one takes the same number of moves, but makes alot more sense cause it has more mirror moves to start and more significant moves at the end. Should be easier to memorize as you go back and forth between this thread and your game.

This is why I said read the whole post before starting. I'm convinced there's an even simpler solution, I just havent found it yet.
