The elevator in the study or bedroom whatever - (room has the crystal ball/wooden ball stuff & there is a round elevator which you take up the next floor where you see a guy doing some stuff, then you come back down, send the elevator up w/o you & jump down in the shaft & there are telescopes which you have to adjust.

Mome......

What you are calling "telescopes" are those three things that do, indeed, look like telescopes......on a round wheel with three spokes. I don't remember what they are called. You should have a book with a picture of this that will show how they should be set.

Maybe what I've just said, though, will help someone else to understand what you are talking about. Meanwhile, I'll try to work it out for you, too. laugh

EDIT:

Look HERE . It might help. The book in the game will make them more clear.

Thanks Billy Bob but that's not what I am looking at. I have already done the weights & the WT calls them telescopes!! You are supposed to move the little balls around a circle to get them at certain positions - 3 oclock, 6 o clock, etc & that takes the elevator up to another floor. Remeber above you said to just pull the lever send that elevator on up & jump down into the shaft??

O.K., if you're saying you did the puzzle under the elevator, got into the elevator and got off at the top where the "telescopes" are located around the room then I know where you are now.

You have to look through these telescopes and focus on a symbol and overlay it on the symbol on a tusk. Then you have to use the location of those little ball when you go to the tusk to get to the linking book........as I remember it.

I'll try to come back with a picture of what you're apparently talking about. Hang in there! laugh

EDIT:....

Look HERE . I think this is what you want. laugh

Ta Da - that's it, I knew I could count on you!!! HOWEVER, when I tried it the first time I could get the little balls to move around, but when I went back I had trouble just moving them so wondered if this was a glitch problem. I seem to have a lot of trouble sometimes when I am playing a game having no trouble, then go back to it & my &^&^&^ computer decides it doesen't like to play nice.

Well, the movement of the balls is determined by how well you focus and overlay the two images for each of the three tusks. You will need the location of the balls after you gain entry into the tusks.

Can't tell you if your computer or the game is giving you problems but I'm sure you'll work it out. laugh

Ah, you're up in the observatory! I was still trying to figure out what telescopes were under the elevator, Mome! laugh

As Billy Bob said, the movement of the balls is determined by the focus. At first, they move quite a lot as you hunt for the tusk symbol and move in closer. As the focus becomes finer, they will move just a little. Remember that the positions of the balls when the object is in focus is only a clue that you will use elsewhere on the island.
