I solved my "Mascot of Blackbeard" challenge / level :D, with accuracy of 99% (I'll consider that perfect and done :D).
The level is about remembering a value for the next round, with the use of only neurons.
This truly shows that the neurons are Turing complete.

Explanation (yes, you can't see the activation functions, only the weights and saved values) :
On the top left, there are two comparators. If one of them registers a change, multiple things happen:
- an accumulator is recharged (bottom triangle),
- the old value for comparision will be deleted (set to 0),
- the gate for the new value to come through is opened,
- the old value old value is rescued to the right side
For the overwriting on the right side, first the old value is set to 0 by adding -100*new value to the value, then it's overwritten. (the node only accepts values from 0 to 1)
Her output will be given to the final output.
For performance reasons I should create a mechanism that kills the accumulator if it's at some low level, because because of it the network doesn't terminate.
