The Hungarian Chess Composers website on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the introduction of the site, announces
a Jubilee Theme Tourney in Orthodox and Fairy sections. The Announcement can be downloaded from here:

What is the definition of "two-way batteries"? Especially in fairy case (with circular rose lines and similar).

The direction of the second battery is opposite to the first after the long-range piece passes through the intersection with the front piece. I hope this can work also with circular rose lines and similar.

Ah, so it's required that the second battery must be created by a critical move, not a pericritical (roundabout) maneuver.
Thank you, Janos!

I'm glad that we have clarified the concept of "two-way batteries" in this helpmate theme. Many thanks for your question, it can help others!

Some more questions regarding the set theme:
- Should in the first two solutions a front piece of the battery be the same (like wRh2 in example) or is it allowed to be a piece A a front piece and a piece B a rear piece in one solution and vice versa in the second solution?
- Does the expression "the battery that has been created" for the third solution mean that it must be created in the third solution as well, or the expression refers to creations of batteries in the first two solutions?

- The first two solutions the front piece of the battery is the same (like wRh2 in example). The role of the theme pieces in a twin problem (where the front piece is the wB, the long-range piece is the wR) can be interchanged as Zilahi.
- The expression refers to creations of batteries in the first two solutions only! The battery mate it's not oblatory after capturing the front piece! See the fairy example.

To 9th post:
By exchanging theme pieces (batteries: B&R to R&B), the solutions are doubled.
See this sketch:
H#3 wRf2, wBh6 / bPd7
a1) 1... Rg2 2… Rg5 3… R~ #
a2) 1... Bc1 2… Rd2 3… R~ #
a3) 1.d5 Rf3 2.d4 Re3 3.dxe3 B~ #
b1) 1... Be3 2… Bd2 3... B~ #
b2) 1... Ra2 2... Bd2 3... B~ #
b3) 1.d5 Bd2 2.d4 Bc3 3.dxc3 R~ #
As a third solution if we take turns capturing the front pieces, we get the Zilahi.
