The Dig - A question

First off boys and girls, I have been a big fan of the point n clicks over the years, and Iím loving the recent revival of the format! (Monkey 1 SE and Broken Sword DC on WII especially, oh and the Tales of Money Island!)

There are a few games I never got around to playing/completing.

One of these is the Dig. Iím enjoying the game, and took it away on my iphone (thanks SCUMVM) as I was in Amsterdam following the England Football team.

I got stuck...... very stuck...... completely stuck!!

I have since looked at a walkthrough, and have how got past the bit I found impossible.

It was the bit with the Control Panel, and Triangle Button!!! How were you supposed to solve that?? Were there any clues I missed?? Or was it pure trial and error? I was getting the "Robot" to try and collect the lens, but couldnít manage it (as I was sending him down first, instead of across!!

Did I miss something?? Is this the hardest part of nay point and click?? Or........ Have I lost the knack????

I honestly don't remember but just wait til you get to the crab puzzle... this is nothing

Hope you gave Gareth Barry a good talking to on the way out.

The colors correspond to directions, like purple is west, yellow is south. So you're giving coordinates with the buttons.

I had problems with this part, too. I took this from a German walkthrough

You had to try a couple of times to find out that each color is a direction, if you push a button more than once it will go further in that direction. The triangular button activated the mechanism.
So a command you could insert is: "2 down, 1 right, activate mechanism." Then it would go 2 feet down and one foot right.
