Talk about a repetition of time. Tried a hundred times to pass the second level and I am baffled...

Or level three...

Yes, they aren't easy. YouTube has walkthrough videos though, these unravel most of the mysteries.

Repetition of Time is one of the most elaborated mod of PoP1; for do it on must learn at memory the precious videos provided by you-tube: without them nobody would be able to obtain Life Potions and to finish many levels! Each one is very hard to do, and some include such unusual particulars. In Level 4 there are three different ways to go, and you can choose in which order; in Levels 10 and 11 there are respectively three and four ways to go, and you can choose the one to avoid.

I know very well Repetition of Time and love this mod, but I still find Level 11 so tough; even if I know how to do it often I can't and lose my patience: just today I got angry and quit the game: Control-Q

After all these years I still play at Repetion of Time! Time! Time! Time! Time! Time! Time! Time! Time!

I tried to play it on SDL mode. Idk if there are some problems in SDLPoP, but I can't get through the door to next level. I have to open the door, then close it using the drop button in top left corner room of the level. However the game doesn't allow me to go through closed door.
I tried to play it on DOS mode, used Shift + L to get to the level 7 and it works - I can get to next level.
It's possible to solve this problem:
Quicksave at the end of level 7, remember the remaining time, close ROT_SDL, open SDLPoP.ini, scroll down to the end of document, find "shift_L_reduced_minutes = 5" and rewrite to remaining time you had at the end of level 7. Then open ROT_SDL again, quickload and press Shift + L. Remember: it is not cheating, you're just solving a problem. ;)
Anyway it would be good if author of this levelset fixed it. Thanks :)

Simply the best mod there is. Great level design, intricate puzzles, the running theme of repeating rooms...absolute masterpiece.

My best speedrun attempt with all the bugs and tricks discovered till now, although there's scope for improvement:
