the rocks-in-water puzzle and its map don't line up

Make sure you're staying oriented to the right rocks -- it's really easy to mix them up in some places. :) Thanks for playing!!

I've just completed that part, turned out that what I took to be a fully centered title in the titlebar in windowed mode, (which I used as an orientation aid) was only semi-centered.

I'm stuck on the puzzle that's "inside", any help?


Did you find the note inside? Watch the monitor as you turn the last dial. Thanks for playing! 🙂
