  There is in fact a second solution of length 249: in steps 186-190, walk the other way around the green steel. :)

  As far as I can tell, the original solution is going to be the final speedrun.

  Yes, that's right.

  Wow, this is a cool level.

I don't see any other way to do it, either. (When Ctrl-D in the solution manager doesn't do anything, that means your solution is the exact same as the original/speedrun, right?)

  Man, hard...

  Oops...I meant "So far, I haven't found any alternate solutions yet." :-) (ambiguous indefinite pronoun reference mistake...)

  That's good...I was really worried someone would find a clever alternate solution to this one. Originally, I didn't even have a trap one space below and to the left of the left-most switch. Also, instead of two-way traps, there were gray blocks to fill up the holes (which didn't quite fit in with the color scheme :-)). Therefore, it was possible to push the two green blocks on the bottom left corner, go all the way around to the top and around to the middle bottom area, and finish with one trap left over. (The intended solution uses every single trap.) So...I added in the extra trap on the left side (which made the level even more confusing and caused me to wonder if there was another solution lurking out there). So far, I haven't found any yet. Thanks, Doom!

  Now that I look at it more closely, the level seems to be more rigid than I thought at first. No. I don't think that there are other solutions anymore.

  My solution was exactly as long as the original. I have no idea if there are different solutions but in a level like this, it's surely a possibility.

  So far, I've found only one way to solve this level. If anyone manages to come up with a different solution, please upload it!
