Greetings Gamers...
I have gotten familiar with ALIDA...
I have completed the PEGHEAD...
I have completed the POTENTIOMETERS...except for
the very last step...the one where I set the four
FINAL settings...
The T-Flyer flew to the Jacktower and the four
tunnels are available...
Potentiometer 1 is illuminated and set...but the
other 3 are dark and non-accessible...the W/T
does not elaborate...need a guiding clue..please?

Solver,
You have to go up one level in each elevator and turn on the lights. smile

You're welcome, Solver. smile

By the way, I just checked the walkthrough at the Alida site, and the directions are there. I just think it's so packed with information that it's easy to overlook small details.

When I first played, it took me a while to realize I could go up another level. Something that happened with an elevator in Myst surfaced in my gray matter, and I had a mini "aha" moment and pushed the button again.

Solver,

You should have had the black keys come down when you played the code.

You will need to visit Arin's vault for a further clue in solving this puzzle. Have you done that?

Dear Melanie...
I went back to the Moon Tone Cabinet and tried
the tune again...no luck...I saw in the w/t that
they showed the whole 'shebang'...so I clicked
all ten numbers...and what do you know...the T-
Flyer opened...I went up to see Arin but he did
not show...so I came down and flew to the
Conservatory...totally confusing...please stand
by...I'm looking for Leval...SOLVER

Solver,
I think it was Tig who mentioned that walking toward the t-rider again triggers the message from Arin, but I haven't tested it myself. I don't remember where I went between my first and second visit (probably everywhere). Anyway, it's a moot point now that the t-rider is operational.

BTW, when you said you went to visit Arin, I'm assuming that you climbed the ladder in the purple light. I think there was some confusion between the strummer viewer (up the elevator by the main vault) and Arin's vault a while back, so I'm just checking to make sure we're on the same page. smile

I was wondering the same thing as Lady K, Solver. I think you are not as far along in the game as you think you are. smile

Dear Lady K...

I was going along singing a song suddenly the
bottom fell out...
I arrived at Leval's Dungeon and he spoke to me
but no matter what,I could not open his door-
lock...so I went on to the T-Flyer back to the
the Switch...Wherein my game crashed...
Please tell me how to go about getting the patch
that I've been reading about...

Yes, I did climb the 'purple lit' ladder to visit
Arin...so if any of this makes sense I sure
could use some help...SOLVER

Hi Solver,
Here is the location for the Alida patch. Just click here. It should solve the crashing problem.

Solver,
As far as the dungeon is concerned,

.

.

.

the 12 o' clock position is 1. From there move the left dial to 21 and the right to 22. Save your game before you go to investigate. You may need to reload. wink

Dear Kay...

Somewhere in the past I sort of figured out what
to do with a 'saved game'...
but now I have a 'zipped' patch sitting on my
desktop...could you or one of the brilliant
gamers tell me what to do with it?

I am about ready to change my pseudonym from
SOLVER to 'DUMMY'...PLEASE HELP!! SOLVER

Solver,
I think it goes in your Alida game file, but I'm not absolutely sure. Several others have used it, so they'll have to give you the details.
