Just started Uru/Dni & don't remember very well the locations & actions in Uru-Prime which I finished quite a while ago.

I now only got up to the following (completely) but need amplification &/or clarification of the GB walkthru paragraph below :-

(Also I find/found the 'definitions/terminology' of "Nexus", "Relto", "KI", etc. a bit vague !) eek

T I A ! help laugh

What we need to do now is go to the Baron's Office. You can link there directly
via link page on the Ae'gura (brown) book or via Teledahn. The Baron's Office is
located in Ae'gura and accessible via the link book hidden in the aquarium in
the room above the control room in Teledahn.

I'll try Len until a URU expert comes around:

Relto - is your own island that you can go to with your linking book at bottom left. Here is where your other linking books are found in the hut.

Nexus - I can't remember the color od description of this linking book. It is the place that functions as a terminal. It is just one room and you insert your hand on the mailbox thing and see a selection of places to go to mostly in the City (ex: ferry, etc.)

KI - this is the item you get at Gahreesen. You can take pictures with it, later use as locator for markers, etc. Usually seen in zoom mode at top left of screen.

The Baron's Office - Just for you to recall in the previous URU game - you rode up the bucket in Teledahn. You arrive on top of the tall building. You rode the elevator to the top. You did a puzzle with the aquarium and found a linking book. This linked to the Baron's office on top of this building. You get a page here so you can link back here easily from your private island-Relto.

Hope that clarifies some things. smile

To continue with what Marita has said, Len. The Nexus book is brownish--one of the ones to the right of the Age books. Be sure to stick your KI underneath any of the books on stands that you find as you go through the City--that will put a page for that location in your City book. Do you remember how to do that.... think

Ask away, we're here--and there are quite a few old threads with lots of information about To D'ni also...

Len, there's an Uru glossary in PDF format at the Guild of Greeters website that might help you out also.

~~ Thanks Arwen !! ~~ <img border="0" alt="bravo" title="" src="graemlins/bravo.gif " />

I thought I was maybe unusually dim, but on downloading that Uru-glossary (that you helpfully recommended) I see that there are somewhere around 100 'definitions'.

I suppose that they wouldn't have posted a large list like that unless others apart from me also got confused with terminology !??! eek

{1} Is it best to go to the Relto (very easy), then choose the book (#3 from the left) to Teledahn ?

Is this the quickest/easiest way. I remember 'parts' only.

{3} If I've forgotten part(s) of {2}, is this described in the GB Uru-Prime walkthru ?

Len, check your last journey cloth to see if it takes you to either the room where the buckets dump you or to the room you are in when you go up the elevator. If you don't have one of those two, you'll have to ride the buckets again. After you get dumped out, here's a quote of what to do from one of the Prime walkthroughs: SPOILER

Now walk to the elevator and press the blue button. The blue button makes the elevator go up and the yellow button makes it go down. This will take you to the top floor. This room has another telescope, windows you can open by operating a lever by one of them, books and papers you should read, a bed and a fish tank. Copy the diagram with the numbered squares in D'ni from 1 to 7. You will need it to solve the pressure plate puzzle. There is also the third Journey Cloth which you should activate. Behind the crate, next to the bed is the first of the Relto pages. Touch it to append it to your book. This page allows you to customize the roof of the Hut in Relto. (Thanks to Mark for the information).

Anyway, you should now go to the fish tank, and press the top button by the red light for three seconds. A panel slides down and a linking book appears.Touch the picture to link to a room with two divisions...

Thanks Jenny.

When I click on the Teledahn (orange colored) book in Relto (I assume ?), the 1st page is ONE cloth, and the following 3 pages are graphics linking to different places.

The cloth takes me to a darkish sort of corridor where you can access that device for shooting down rocks & another (at least one) location.

It's after 2:00 am here (July 1st) ... will try to get my bearings tomorrow.

Goodnight ... and thanks again ! praise

There is only one journey cloth in each age, Len, and they save one on top of each other, so all you can access is the last one you made.

Looks as though you will have to open the Age book, click on the picture of the hut and go outside and ride the buckets again... slapforehead

Exactly how does one aquire To D'ni? Have played Ages Beyond Myst and removed it once finished. Do I need to re-install it and play again? Also if it is only available by download, what do I need to do?

This is what Lasanidine stated:
Uru the prime, XPack1.
1. You have to have Uru prime installed on your HD to be able to install the XPack
2. You do not have to have a finished prime game to play the extension pack but it is easier to play it if your prime game is finished
3. There is a saved game folder in you Uru directory called <b>sav</b>. If you saved that and uninstalled the game you can install it and put sav folder into the game directory
4. The XPack will start you in the desert and you have to make it into your Rleto again.
5.The fist XP is free, the second one is due out at the end of June and you will have to pay for that.:)

Dhart, you will have to reinstall URU in order to play To D'ni, but you don't need to worry about downloading it if you don't want to. A second expansion pack, called Path of the Shell, is due to come out in about a week, and it will include a CD of To D'ni...

I only seem to remember maybe TWO games I have given up for a total loss … out of goodness knows how many.

Uru-to-Dni seems all set to becoming another !
I think that many Boomers were involved in different stages of beta-testing, and I hope my general (buggy) assessment on the main Discussion is not offensive.

I got right through & completed the whole of Uru-Prime and made a proper full save at the end.
When I insert this save into Uru/Dni it seems to “fit” 100% & tally completely with the GB Uru/Dni walkthru.

I understand from the walkthru that my next move is to reach the "Baron's Office" (O.K. ..... not that I remember this from URU-Prime, or even what it looks like when/if I ever reach there ! eek )

It seems to indicate that I can arrive there either …………..

** (A) You can link there directly via the link page on the Ae'gura. book (Brown book with stylized tree … 7th book from the left) OR **** (B) via the Teledahn Book (Orange color … 3rd book from the left ).

** (A) Seems out of the question at present since I have so far ONLY obtained the very first 2 linking pages.

**** (B) I think that I COMPLETELY finished Uru-Prime and started Uru/Dni from the FINAL Uru-Prime save .
When I access this Teledahn Book, there is ONE CLOTH (and I’m fairly certain that this was the LAST one superimposed from Uru-Prime) and afterwards 2 or maybe 3 Linking-Pages.

Using EITHER the cloth or the 1st linking page (the “hut”) I can easily get the machinery going, all possible levers pulled etc. I’ve done this a dozen times. On some occasions the 2 buckets are stationary and will not move at all. By ‘fiddling’ I can get the buckets moving BUT no amount or type of lever pulling will get EITHER bucket to stop at the bottom or anywhere else. I have pulled levers when the buckets are in pretty well every position(s) possible ---> Nada ! mad

I vaguely remember doing this in Uru-Prime and seem to remember succeeding on the 3rd or 4th try.

Unless somebody can instruct me as to how to reach the "Baron's Office", I reckon I’ve wasted more than enough time already … which maybe (partly at any rate) is at least one of the reasons why Uru-Live had to be abandoned ???
