Post Room 42
Ok, so have all the previous room discussions disappeard? I usually tried to find hints on the already existing topics but since I can't find one for room 42 anymore, where i've been stuck for something like 2 years now, I'll start a new one.

I've found the first, second and third mini CD. I'm dealing with p******s now...
I found something pretty obvious, but it doesn't seem to do anything.

also...
Spoiler: show
I've noticed (maybe?) a connection with the first CD puzzle, but since I guessed the answers in that one as I couldn't solve the maths, I don't have all the elements and something is clearly missing.

but maybe i'm on the wrong track with that.... am I?

I'm not noticing anything else. hints, anyone?
:D :signthx:

There used to be tons of posts at the old forum, but it's gone now.
Not sure what you mean by obvious. You don't need anything from the first CD. Just focus on the instructions written there.

the obvious thing would be
Spoiler: show
the word p****** on the first p****** 8-)
but i don't know what to do with it... :problem:
I'm trying to follow the instruction and find the connection between all of the p****** but nothing I came up with until now seems to work...

palindromes

All I found to this point is the

column of "X"s that divides the text in 2
but what to do with it? the 2 parts don't match...

~ 1 year later ~

Yes, I'm pretty sure the 2 sides have nothing in common xD

And I can't think of anything else to try to make them match! D:

Please help, I'm so lost TT^TT

Through the middle of the forest, a path will show the way,
Look left, look right, but tarry not - or you'll be there all day,
The forest as a whole is large, many plants you see,
To find the fruit you seek you should examine every tree.

Through the middle of the forest, a path will show the way, - ok, I got this.
Look left, look right, but tarry not - or you'll be there all day, - so I guess not every letter is important?
The forest as a whole is large, many plants you see, - yep.
To find the fruit you seek you should examine every tree. - maybe I found it, but could it be just ONE?
I mean:
Spoiler: show
I found only one letter that's exactly the same and in the same (specular) place on both sides of the "path"

I tried it as an answer but it doesn't seem to work. however should I keep focusing on it? I tried to use in a few other ways but none worked yet. Am I on the right track?

You're definitely on the right track. :)

Spoiler: show
Each step you take, eat some fruit.


(I was using the word "fruit" in a collective sense - like you'd say "a bowl of fruit" rather than "a bowl of fruits".)

Post Re: Room 42
nothing I can think of it's working D:
my last guess was that I had to eat a fruit on each side of the path for every step, and that fruit was to be found in the same position as the first one, but I end up with a bunch of random letters (which doesn't surprise me) that don't work as a password nor as a hint. So I guess this is not the right strategy, in which case I really need to be pushed in the right direction...

Edit: nope, i just wasn't observing enough. There's more than one fruit and somehow i kept missing them all except one...

Well I'm out now! Thanks for your help, guys! :D
