Its not against the spirit of the game, its whether the user downloads it or not, its just fine as not all users will use it.

Well... it'd be a big temptation and I guess who makes the sin makes the sinner, sort of :P

I have finished all challenges on my own "technically"

However, I do realize that not all people have the skill, patience or time required to solve these challenges before it begins to feel stressful.

I agree with them downloading the genomes and keep going as the point of any game is to have fun, not to prove you're better than anyone else.
PEACE & LOVE,

Posting solutions is neither in the spirit of the game, nor is it against the spirit of the game. Easily accessible solutions can affect the shear dufficulty and work of progressing. It can affect how much people do and do not learn. But it certainly doesn't nullify the challenging aspect of challenges, and certainly not for those who choose not to download, or try exhaustively first.

Taken to the ultimate extreme, the solutions could be put in the app. Petter obviously doesn't want that because he doesn't do it. But he has himself posted a solution in the forum. ;) Ultimately, it comes down to the preferences of those who post and those who download. As long as we keep things in balance and in perspective, I think we're fine. :)

What about a middle ground then?
Here's the file:

I'll keep it available for a couple of weeks, so HarryJames2045 can download and use it. I'll delete it afterwards, so it won't be a temptation for new users. :)

at least you tried.
My biggest progress in that challenge was when I realized it had to move a little but not too much.

I mean, using it as a last resort is the spirit, not feeling guilty :oops:
