Am underway again!!!! Found a patch that corrected this problem. Evidently a glitch does exist at the exact spot I am at on fast PCs. The patch updated the game and I am merrily underway again. Hope this helps other either playing or going to play this excellent game.

"Am almost to end of third year - at the place rescuing Menche and working with tumblers. Have a WT that gives very very clear directions. But I cannot get it to work despite following the directions to the last turn.

Anyone succeded here and what did you do? Generally directions I have are right, left, right, left but they do not seem to follow the turning tumblers."

This is a tricky part--Lilac; as I remember, the pieces don't look exactly lined up when they are. These are the best directions I've found: SPOILER

Turn the wheel to the right until all four of the tumblers are moving. Stop the wheel when the topmost tumbler is lined up with the door jamb (i.e. there's a gap between them). Now, turn the wheel to the left until the second tumbler is lined up. If you go too far, you'll have to start over. Now, back to the right to line up the third one, and then back to the left for the bottom one. Step away from the wheel and look at it. Manny will tell you if they're lined up or not...

Ah ha - your directions are different than mine Jenny - maybe I can get that door open now. Thanks for the info.

Hi DL
Are you going to Manny's office ? (Not the office from the beginning of the game ). You take the elevator up (beside the Blue Casket) and go around the elevator and up the stairs. The letter should be on the table in his office.

DesertLilac says: "I do not recognize any of these posts as being pertinent to Grim Fandango + the fact there are none of my posts here regarding this game. Was told to stay with this thread until I finished the game.

Will post my present problem. Have manny on the ledge in the tunnel with the big alligator. My WT says to walk him to the end of the ledge, have his remote out, climb half way down the ladder and use remote on alligator.

First problem is I can get Manny to take out the remote but he puts it away BEFORE he starts down the ladder. After he starts down, can't get him to take out remote as he keeps saying 'not right now'.

Thus I end up with the alligator turning on Manny and he runs up the ladder and back down the ledge toward the bone wagon.

Not sure how to proceed here.

Again am lost as to where I should be on posting."

Lilac, check this old thread for some hints on getting past that alligator.

Hi desertlilac smile

I found getting through this puzzle required you to have the remote control to hand at the right times AND required you to act quickly.

When you enter the tunnel where the aligator lives, you have to first make absolutely sure that Glottis has driven the car into the tunnel as far as it will go.
Then use the remote to lift the car up.
Then jump out onto the ledge and go to the ladder at the other end.

This is where you must act quickly.....
Start down the ladder and the aligator will turn round to face you.
Now quickly go back up the ladder and use the remote to lower the car onto the aligator's tail - whilst it is still facing you.

Hope that helps laugh

Cheers.
