made for: https://confoundingcalendar.itch.io/ 2023

controls:

left click place conveyor belt, hold shift to place multiple

left click to drag objects

right click to delete belts

z = undo, x/y = redo

equations work horizontally, vertically, and backwards

belts move numbers (edit: can now move symbols)

let me know if you beat my best cycles of 93

i got 710

560

529

286

130

(spoiler)

I got 33 nines in 82 cycles:

the rounding is extremely annoying

also `=` is left-associative for some reason. Is that intentional?

you mean if you have "=" on both sides of an equation, the left one triggers first? Didn't really consider it just happened to sort them that way

how do i not just multiply or divide once and then end up with only one number

am i stupid?

(spoiler)

1 / 3 = infinite numbers

i don't get it

you need to get 33 9's

spoiler: 1/3=0.333333333

hello bcat112a I have beaten your best cycles of ninety-three with my contraption: one-hundred-and-six cycles. I will try for higher later. https://imgur.com/a/5gkI07b

the leftover clues at the end were very intruiging; I calculated the result and called the number on my cellular phone, only to hear the game’s muisc playing both forward and backwards at the same time. I have yet to discover what this is meant to signify

um the lower cycle numbers are better

Hint: it's probably a joke.

maybe, it's hard to tell when just typing

But what's the maximum cycles possible?

I verified a machine that ran for 226,186 cycles, which took about two hours on the highest speed.

This machine would in theory run for about 14,000,000 cycles, which is about 5 days. (EDIT: bad math, disregard this)

EDIT: After some better arrangement and some machine-aided optimization, revision 2 has a theoretical runtime of 61,000,000 cycles ≈ 3 weeks.

so, whos crazy enough to actually run it

finally, the interesting fact that 5/2=2.5 will be useful!!

how did you get 5 or 2

hint:1/3=3/9

Okay there has to be something I'm missing, how do I not just immediately lose all my numbers?

EDIT: oh right

I wish we could conveyor the math symbols though

you can, but only if the numbers are trying to push them

What really? That's so strange

oops that's not supposed to happen, anyway i updated it so you can always move math symbols

I love your other game, fractal factory! (although I only found how to access it recently on itch, and will need to download it on my other computer because this one doesn't have a desktop)

Havent started, but I bet itll be fun.

398. woo

212. Long way to go

116. I need a better design

98. A little more...

88. Beat the creator, but I still can do better.

my first was 652

second try I got 99

moved it one right and made a simple optimisation and now it's 77.

the key is to use the same = for both divisions

71

great game! i got 61 with this configuration https://imgur.com/a/Xvl67Qr

oops i can't read so didn't realize equations worked backwards too...

here's a 35 https://imgur.com/a/NDLi6KR

simplest 34 I've found: https://imgur.com/PqdA2j8 (also loops cleanly)

Im not going to look at the images (so I can figure it out) but those are amazing scores!

I did look at (thinking that I wouldn't be able to easily remember it), but the solution was so simple I don't know how the creator didn't come up with it.

that division setup is really nice! I got 35 without it but couldn’t figure out how to shave that last cycle

mine is practically the same, but this was the least belts (21) I could go for 34 cycles https://imgur.com/a/lYvPYU9

You guys are amazing. btw 34 cycles is possible with 20 belts

oh I didn't see that, nice optimisation

here's 16 :D

got 105 cycles, i would love to see how you did it

great choice of music btw
