So close, yet so far

OK! I have 43070 segments, and it's got to be on the right track.

Nevertheless, no variation of "little man smoking a cigarette, with giant exploding brain and legs" seems to work as the key to the next level. Maybe that's because he's twirling a whirligig, not smoking a cigarette? Or maybe it's a map of Mars. I'll pursue these possibilities with vigor.

It was ... but ooops! I got two things out of this. One took me to level 25, and the other to Temporary End :shock: -- it thinks I solved level 26, but I just got my first look at level 25. Maybe it was a bonus for apologizing on the last level :wink:

No, since I didn't apologize yet (but I'm starting to think that I should raise my priority on that) and I got that too. I already pm'ed thesamet about it and he changed it; he had to change maze.png and also a certain persons l_____.

I have 43079 segments too, so that should be correct.

Probably, but not certain. Because of an issue that arose, the image has been changed. I don't think the length has changed because of that, but maybe it has.

Did anyone of you have to use sys.setrecursionlimit() too?

thesamet: Now that something is "fixed", has the broken one any meaning?

With my first approach I bumped into the recursion limit, but then I tried another approach. That approach had no problem with that limit, and was much faster too.

Could you place it on the Wiki, then? I'd love to see it...

I replaced the image a minute ago.

Keep the broken one for level 26.
