Lösungscode: Die Anzahl der Schritte, die zwischen jeder Drehung des Rundwegs unternommen werden, wenn der Rundweg in Uhrzeigersinn von dem ersten schwarzen Feld zum letzten schwarzen Feld durchlaufen wird.
Für eine beliebige Anzahl von Schritten größer als vier wird 5 verwendet.
Für das Beispiel wäre der Code 1421341.

Wonderful puzzle! I really enjoyed solving it. So much new logic emerges in the process. I don't have much expirience, but this must be my favourite Castle Wall puzzle yet.

I love the many interactions with the central blanked region, I'll be keeping an eye out for more hollow puzzles like this. I feel like it also lets you make a bigger puzzle without it getting too monstrous or clue-heavy.

Very nice! I really enjoyed the novel interactions between the rules!

Very enjoyable and surprising puzzle! Some deductions that I didn't appreciate in the first puzzle were very useful here.

Wonderful! I learnt a lot of new characteristics of the ruleset in this puzzle. Also, I thought the steps were nicely telegraphed throughout, even if they weren't too easy to actually convert.
Thank you for your very kind words Mark, I'm really glad you liked the puzzle. /Magnus

Thank you so much for setting this. Mind-blowing puzzle!! The break-in is extraordinary and the solve full of amazing discoveries. One of my favourite puzzles
Thanks a lot for your wonderful comments Samish, I'm really glad you had that kind of experience with the puzzle! /Magnus

Aaaargh. I've tried the wrong version all the time. What is strange: I came to the intended solution several times, but the solution check never triggered.
A very nice puzzle anyway.
I'm really sorry about that. I try to be very careful and have never posted a broken puzzle before, but somehow this went unnoticed despite several multiple solves during testing. I also wish there was some technical way to alert solvers who may have started the puzzle when a problem is discovered. Anyway, really strange about the solution check, it definitely worked for me. /Magnus

Superb! It was a lot of fun figuring out the implications of the ruleset in a larger grid. Thanks Magnus!
Thanks a lot ONeill! /Magnus

Very enjoyable puzzle! The minimalistic nature of the puzzle reveals its secrets as one understands the intricacies of the ruleset better.
Thank you Niverio! Really glad you liked it despite the problem with the initial posting. /Magnus

Fixed broken clue. The 6-clue in R5C2 was previously mistakenly a 5. My sincere apologies, somehow this passed all testing unnoticed. Thanks Niverio and polar for the heads up.

Revised German translation

To be sure: If there are several arrows, the sums in all directions are counted together?
In the English rules it is said 'combined', so I think this is true, but in the German rules this is missing, so you can read it in several ways.
Yes, all directions added together. I'll try to revise the german translation. /Magnus

I would highly recommend solving the introductory puzzle (id=000CBD) before attempting this one. Otherwise, there is a risk that the break-in might feel a bit tricky. Following the break-in, the rest of the puzzle should be quite smooth given some previous experience of the ruleset.
