Planet Cracker achievement - Hardware Crack puzzle solutions
 
Please read first:
When I did my first playthrough, I chose to do route A. This means I started with a RIG level 1.
As you perhaps already know from reading the achievement guide, your RIG will become level 4 (unlocking the achievement for it) by the end of the first playthrough.
Once having a RIG level 4, you will have more tools at your disposal to make the mini-games easier.
This being said, I made youtube videos for all possible laser mini-games, but the ones on route A are with the RIG not fully upgraded. This means that routes B, C and D are based upon having a fully upgraded RIG.

There are several paths (routes) you can take. Here's an overview:

- Route A: Act 1 (Start) -> Act 2A (Lighting Failure) -> Act 3A (Direct Route) -> Act 4
- Route B: Act 1 (Start) -> Act 2A (Lighting Failure) -> Act 3B (Cross the Rim) -> Act 4
- Route C: Act 1 (Start) -> Act 2B (Hostage Situation) -> Act 3C (Spacewalk) -> Act 4
- Route D: Act 1 (Start) -> Act 2B (Hostage Situation) -> Act 3D (Interior Route) -> Act 4


Different routes will result in different puzzles. Depending on the route you'll take, pick the according videos:

- Route A: Act 1.1 / Act 1.2 -> Act 2A.1 / Act 2A.2 -> Act 3A.1 / Act 3A.2 -> Act 4
- Route B: Act 1.1 / Act 1.2 -> Act 2A.1 / Act 2A.2 -> Act 3B -> Act 4
- Route C: Act 1.1 / Act 1.2 -> Act 2B -> Act 3C -> Act 4
- Route D: Act 1.1 / Act 1.2 -> Act 2B -> Act 3D -> Act 4

No, I didn't forget some videos. It turns out that routes C and D have less laser mini-games...

I hope it is all clear and understandable, and these videos will help you solving the puzzles.

Good luck!

Here's a pic I took of the last hardware crack puzzle in the game in Act 4. I am going to try to post more of these but if not, hopefully others contribute. Just note that you have to rotate the yellow laser once or twice to get it to shine in the diagnoal path (I didn't do it in picture because level would have ended before I snapped the pic!)

Thanks, but I can't copy-paste them in the guide :( The site you're hosting them, doesn't allow me to.

I've made a picture myself, and put it on facebook. From there, I'm copy pasting one (puzzle 7).

I also made a video with the digital cam, which I uploaded to youtube. They're "converting" it right now, so will try to post these as well.

Very, very odd. I think my game f-ed up. In the picture above the solution has 5 splitters. My game only has four. I have four splitters, two removers, nine reflectors.

been rattling my brain on this one for a while, I guess it'd make sense why I can't solve it if I don't have a part I need.

No, you're game isn't f#cked up. If this is the first time you're doing this puzzle, you'll only have 4 splitters because your RIG isn't fully upgraded yet (which will be a bit later in the game).

Since my profile has a fully upgraded RIG, I'll have to re-do the whole story mode again using another profile so that I'll have the same amount of splitters and reflectors.

Then, I'll try to make the youtube video and post it here as well.

http://www.youtube.com/user/HyperBio.../2/95o65isZwuU This guy on Youtube posted a 1 - 6 part walkthrough.

He picked Hostage Situation - Spacewalk route.

Ahh, that makes sense then. I should restart and do another route, then come back and finish that up. I see no way to solve it with just four splitters; I always end up needing one more to make a correct setup.

Thanks for the response.

Hardware Crack 10 (Act 3D, Hack 4A) Sorry if it's not clear, because it was taken with my mobile phone.

There is a way of solving it with only 4 splitters (projectors). I only need to put the solution online for it, but I'm actually on my 2nd run on Route C.

As for your puzzle problem, all I can remember is that I had to put a splitter in top right corner. It took me several attempts before I finally figured it out, but trust me, it is doable with the limited amount of splitters.

If you're not in a hurry, come back somewhere in the weekend. I will probably have put the solution online somewhere late Saturday or Sunday.

Good luck

A GREAT guide dude!

Ninja Boosh 11-19-2010 09:54 PM

Awesome guide. Much much appreciated!

As much as I like puzzles, these just got too complicated for me too care anymore. Whereas something like Limbo is fun enough to figure out you avoid teh interwebz.
