I have and played thru URU, BAAGed a new copy of D'ni and POTS X Pack - and got very confused trying to collect 'markers (15 or 20 or more) so went to the URU site (found the link by doing a search on GB for 'markers') and found an official walkthru/hints/guide, printed it out and am replaying (from where I was totally woozy and confused ~ my sense of direction is lousy and I could not find the Library building, used that map on the easel by the 'contractors' table in the square/courtyard but not figuring it out, I make a lousy navigator, too) it step by step to be sure I have all the markers and have found all the places they are. In doing all this, and 'seeing' things I missed the first 50 times I passed into out of and through each area I discovered in Relto on the bookshelf right of the wardrobe = I HAVE MY VERY OWN JOURNAL! It must be mine, as it has my (character) name on it! But there is nothing in it.....any ideas how this gets 'written' into? Did anyone else make this wonderful discovery? How does THIS work?
Love, Betty Lou
P.S. Went back to the trailer in the rain cleft and picked up Zandi's shirt, had no idea I was supposed to do this earlier, or that I even could. After all this time, I am still learning how to get around in this game and how to use stuff - thought that thing on my wrist (KI?) was a wristwatch of some sort, still do not know just how to use it when I click on it to raise it on my screen to the top of the scene. And just what does K I stand for? or does it not stand for anything? laugh

Betty Lou, the KI that you are wearing will open doors and then will be used to find locators throughout the areas. Locators is probably the wrong word, but I'm trying to figure out what exactly you need. It sounds like you found all of your markers if you found 15, did you then put your KI back into the little machine to download the info?
Even better, can you tell me where you are in the game? It might make it easier to help you move on. Sue

Betty Lou, in addition to what Sue has said about the KI, when the on-line game was available, you could use the KI to chat with other people. Also you can use it to take pictures, which I think can be shown on the imager that you get for your Relto somewhere along the line (I'm not sure exactly where I picked it up).

No sure what KI means, but it's undoubtedly a D'ni word...

Hi, Betty Lou: You can write whatever you like in your journal, it's yours! Just put the cursor on the page and type. bravo

Oh, and yes, you take pictures with your Ki that will appear on your imager. You can also use them for wallpaper on your desktop. I really like this, showing off my conquering moments.

Hmmmm, I assumed that KI was a device created by DRC (the restoration team) and not the D'ni, so I thought it was an acronym for something, maybe not. I have completed the first 5 (green) 'markers', the next 5 (red) markers and have opened the glass doors in Reseeza (Calibration Chamber/Room) and have succeeded in finding the first of the next set of markers (3?) and have it entered into the machine but have checked for the coords for the second one and its supposed to be on the 'balcony over the canyon' in the brown book on the shelf in Relto, I link there and I cannot find any marker to 'touch', any suggestions what I do now? Going around in circles.........getting nowhere. (I notice that when I enter my KI in the second machine, the numbers are there but the blue button is not flashing, does nothing when I click on it stays unlit, what does it mean?)
Thanks for any and all help. Take pictures? How do I do that? And earlier in the game when I was looking for the second set (15) markers there was an image in the lower right hand corner of my screen that flashed when I approached the area where one was, there was no sound beeping but that could be because I am losing my sound every now and then, quitting the game and starting it up again seems to cure it for a while. Anyway, now when I am near a marker there is no flashing image and the KI is not flashing either - another 'glitch'?
Love, Betty Lou

Betty Lou, when looking for the last 5 markers, keep the Ki on the screen. Watch the co-ordinates, this should help you find the last 5 markers. I also had a problem with not being able to hear the "beeping" sound. Check to make sure you haven't pushed the button on the Ki to turn the sound off.
I never found the one that is supposed to be on the balcony either, just roamed around until I found a marker. It seems as though there are more markers in the game than the 15 needed to activate the Great Zero.
To take a picture, have the Ki on your screen and push the top (?) button

Thanks Viz. Another question then - "watch the coordinates" - where are these coordinates I am supposed to watch? on the KI?
Oh, and where does the picture I just took go then? Where do I get to view it?
Love, Betty Lou

Betty Lou, the fourth machine isn't active until you get the other three. The machines tell you what the coordinates are but your KI doesn't show any coordinates until you enter the markers. You get one for the first, two for the second etc., so when you are looking for the very last one for the fourth machine your KI will show you exactly where you are. I think you should have two balconies in your book because I did find a marker on one. The big button on the top right of the KI brings up the pictures you have taken and the one under that turns the sound on and off. By the way, when you find the very last marker you don't need to jump, just get as close as possible to the edge. I was almost tearing my hair out by the time I realised that.

Yes on the Ki, as you move around the game, you will see the numbers under the symbols change. (I think that I am remembering this correctly)
When you open the Ki to take a picture, you will see arrows on each side of the screen, click on one of these to scroll thru the pics. Once you find the page to add the imager to Realto,you can also see them there.

Teresa, Please help refresh my memory, To D'Ni was half a dozen games ago. smile
That is why I forgot to add that you have to find one marker at the time for the Great Zero, go back and put it in and get the next set of co-ordinates. The co-ordinate numbers appear under the right symbols on the Ki think

Betty Lou, when you entered the first marker into the machine did you press the blue button? You have to do that to complete the process. Then you can go on to the next marker.

You're probably on the wrong balcony--go into Eder Kemo, across the long walkway and follow along past the Bahro door to the place on the right where a big thingie is rotating. There is a low wall around this place--go behind it and see a linking cloth. This will take you to the correct balcony, and if you have finished with the first machine, put your KI in the second machine, and pressed the blue button, you should see the marker circle....

I am only slightly confused about what I have already done - and your tips here are helping to clarify what the walkthroughs mean for me to have to do - but now my confusion is because I have retraced my steps to EACH and every marker (25) on the list in the gameboomers walkthrough bu C. Buda and have checked them off - and apparently since I had picked up a couple of markers out of sequence of the w/t's I had more than I needed for the first 15-20. So please correct me if I am wrong here = the first 5 markers were first dim green then dark green when I had them all; the second 15 were dim red then dark red when I had them all; now I have only one lit space on my KI and it was dim ?blue? and is now strong
Blueish/white. There are electric flashes at Rekeesha and a flashing outline of a shell in the middle section up in a "U" shaped 'screen' between the doors, and I have linked to Kemo, found the linking cloth to the ledge above the classroom but cannot find a marker anywhere, have proceeded to Tokatah Alley to the edge of the precipice but there is no blue swiping ray there yet......I must have missed a marker or markers somewhere, but am at a loss as to just where they are. Too tired now to try again tonight.....may try again tomorrow, but do not know just what else I can do. This may be the part that 'does me in' and makes me give up.....
thanks for your help.
Love, Betty Lou

Betty Lou, you were fine with the green and red markers. Now that you have the one white space on your KI (I assume you got that by putting your KI into the first machine at Rezeero), what you need to do is to link to the Kadish Art Gallery. You should have a page for that in your Kadish book in Relto, but if you don't, there is a linking cloth in one of the windows in the part of Kadish where the machines that open the door are located.

Once you get to the Gallery, a marker will show up high in the air. Collect it and go back to the machine in Rezeero and put your KI back in again, and press the blue button. That should finish that machine--now go to the next one and put your KI in there and push the button.

In other words, you can only get one marker space on your KI at a time, and that one must be collected and downloaded before you can see the next one... luck

I have 'backtracked' a bit - decided to look at my sav file on my harddrive, drive C, program files, Ubisoft, Uru/ABM/POTS(to D'ni) and have deleted all the sav's dated Oct 1 and 2 and started up the game again, and am back at the beginning of To D'ni. I am going to follow the uruobsession walkthrough step by step and to the letter - I will keep you posted on my progress. My reason for doing it this way is because I was so confused as to what I had done and what I did not do and decided to 'start over' to erase my confusion. The one thing I can say about my 'first' experience with/in D'ni is that I should know the city almost as well now as I knew the Chicago I grew up in....and I hope I have a better sense of my direction and have learned how to use my 'tools' i.e. the KI - for instance I did not learn early on that it would take pictures, and I still do not know what I can do with them once I have taken them. I also did not know I had a 'journal' of my own, and I did not know how to write in it...
About my confusion finding the marker on the Bevin neighborhood balcony, I found this one earlier by accident and collected it before the C. Buda w/t said to that is why I could not find it. And once I linked to the ledge over the classroom I still could not find a marker there, don't know what that was about....so kinda lost my place where I was with the 4 KI machines. I was able last night to operate the 4th machine OK but then got bogged down in my somewhat confused state of mind and felt like giving up. Today is a new day, my interest in this game has not waned, and I am ready to tackle it all over again....at least I don't have to redo URU ABM, can just start ToD'ni over. Thanks for the help. I may/will be back!
Love, Betty Lou laugh "let me at 'em"

luck Betty Lou, I used the pictures as clues for solving the puzzles. You are so close to the end of the game, don't give up. smile
