help needed (beacon puzzle) [SPOILERS]

Can anybody please help me solve this beacon puzzle? No matter how I look at it I can't find a solution. Here is what the section looks like (the image is large so click the zoom icon to see it properly) :

I have marked with an "m" those items that are moveable.

Any ideas???

Thanks Sandy Sue for the PMs - I think I didn't make myself clear. I need a solution to this particular puzzle, I really hope it's not a bug but honestly I'm more and more convinced it is :( I hope I'm blind to something obvious...

I've tried to solve it going from either direction (the unlit or lit beacon) and the dots simply don't connect. Here are my ideas (I have marked with yellow X those items that are dead ends - the are in line with only 1 other item):

Here is a soultion that would work if the "basket" in the middle was not movable (marked with ???). Unfortunatelly it is and as I noticed there is no option that it could pass the light on in a straight line (it seems there has to be a turn at each item):

Does anyone see anything in there? Please? I've tried walking around and clicking even on items that do not wobble but it didn't work... I'm out of ideas :(

In both caseS the wodden clock ( the first one close to the the lit beacon )  must be tied directly to the statue. In both case you tied the statue with the iron barrel, which seems to be wrong. The square formed by the 2 iron barrels and the statue is not correct, it is deformed. Did you cheched the bed, the lion statue, the big statue and the small statue in the left side area where is your army?

Unforunately it's a bug, and this dungeon will be a bit changed visually in the next update.

For now try this solution, please http://imgur.com/a/hScZ2 It should work this way :)

Random, i have a dungeon as well with a beacon puzzle that i think might be bugged as well.  There are only 3 objects that can move, and i've tried to move them in every combination and nothing has worked :/  Please note, that i *do* know what i am doing as i have solved beacon puzzles with about 15 items, lol.  Is there any way you can check it?  it is for my hero leeana, and it is in the grand dungeon.  Thanks.

Leeana, I've checked your puzzle in Grand Dungeon and fortunately everything is good and solvable :)

How can one tell which is the correct way an object is facing? What is its front facing view, for the most not obvious ones (ex. the half broken pillar and the cage with the skeleton next to it).

In the case of a pillar or a cage you just need to find a protruding
part of an object, that's the key to figure out the direction.

The protruding part of the object means what exactly.

I was also curious if someone would post a solved beacon puzzle, just to give an idea of how one looks solved. One where it gives an idea of how the objects should be oriented. I do believe it would be a big help to the rest of us that are pulling our hair trying to figure it out.

>>>The protruding part of the object means what exactly.

Bones and skull in a case of a cage, wreckage in a case of a pillar.

Is the protruding part the North, South, East, or West side of an object?

Every object has 4 directions to face, and it can be faced in any of that direction in the beginning of a puzzle.

I am also having an issue solving the beacon puzzle in my Ruined Dungeon. Here is the solution I really think should work but it is not. Red circled items are moveable, double circled are the beacons. Each of my paths in yellow appear to be well lined up and connected.

Are some movable objects just a red herring?

Movable, but not part of the solution? Or must the beacon go through each object?

Cranky, when i looked at your solution, it appears as though some of your objects are not facing the right way :)

Mari, yes, some items are red herrings, some puzzles have items that can move but are not part of the solution.

Cranky, Leeana is right, some of rotatable objects in your beacon puzzle are faced in the wrong directions. To avoid some further misinterpretations I drew current directions of these objects: http://imgur.com/a/0MDGB
