Flippin' Sheets has had issues for a long time. Here are a few observations from recent testing.
The first popup has a "That's All!" button, but it seems like "OK!" would be less confusing. (Better yet, just "OK", but maybe that's too much too hope for.) "That's All!" makes some other appearances as well.
The "Stop Tweak now" button keeps popping up even when tweak is not running. For example, try adding bands between the bonded sheets. You'll probably see a lot of this popup.
The behavior of this puzzle is inconsistent. Flipping the sheet as instructed, then shaking and wiggling *sometimes* solves the puzzle, but not always. When it doesn't work, there's a chance nothing will work except to reset and try again. This has been an issue off and on for years.
I've updated the wiki help for Flippin' Sheets with a procedure which seems to work reliably. After flipping the second sheet, the loop between the top two sheets has severe clashing. Shaking and wiggling the bad loop followed by shaking and wiggling the entire protein should get to the required score. Perhaps these steps could be added to the puzzle.
Here are some previous feedbacks on this topic:
- Inconsistency in Flippin' Sheets by beta_helix from 2010. (I was tempted to re-open this one.)
- Tutorial puzzle flipping sheets is flawed by Bertro from 2012.
- Better introduction/explanation needed for tutorials from 2012.
- devprev Flippin' sheets issue by Bletchley Park from 2012.
