does green mean "this row or column is solvable"? cause I don't think that column is solvable lol

you should be able to get a few squares in the middle of the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh rows from the bottom if i'm remembering how to do these properly

you can't, they're too wide.

I am now seeing where my logic is flawed, crap this is hard

For the column 2 6 1 4 I can see two options:

  1. The two whites are part of a six block. In this case the whites are the lowest of the six and 1 and 4 blocks are the lowest possible ones.

  2. The two whites are part of a four block. In this case there is a maximum of 15 blocks to be filled and 2+6+1 = 9 > 0.5*15 = 7.5. Thus in this case you should be able to to get at least one white block somewhere in the upper column.

I tried the first one in Gimp and it looks like it might work, but it sorta looks I ran into a contradiction, but I'm not sure 100% since I'm tired and I suppose it's easier to keep track of things in game. But your could try the latter strategy.

There was a thread in the steam forums where someone asked and it turns out in both cases (the two blocks being part of the 4 or the 6) the fifth block up from the bottom in that column can be greyed out. Figuring out obscure things like that kind of is my least favourite part of Picross puzzles because they can be so difficult to find.

Well at least you should get quite a bit done with that single greyed out block. One row completely done and quite a bit of greyed out cells.

Yea I get it now. I've never seen a picross puzzle pull something so obscure lol
