I was aiming too high I was trying to hit it above the green bottom when I aimed for that I killed it. Now am having problems with the code to get into the sub. When I opened the key lock the numbers shown were not 0013 like stated in WT. They were 7258 How do I get them to 0013 so I can get into the sub?

Dutch, from looking at the walkthrough I think that what you are supposed to do is add the 0013 to the number that shows up when you start. So try putting in 7271 and see if that works... luck

Er... It is shown number which changes from game to game + 1860 = the number to be entered.

The 1860 is based on Capt. Nemo's journal and the year the granite house was made.

The 0013 is just an example.

DUH!!!Talk about being dumb I just cant read!!Ok I am at the second door. I put 1860 on top line When I press the number to get the letters the 1860 disappears. I click on the letters for Nautilus and all the lights go green on the bottom. When I click on the number to change to letters all the lights go green on the top. But the door does not open. I dont have any more clay and I cant get off the sub to go get more. Do I really need the clay or can I work around it?

This is the door at the bottom of the stairs, right?

You have to alternate the numbers and then the letters. For example click on 1, a set of letters appear. Find the letter that is in the word Nautilus. Click that letter. Then click 8, then a letter, click 6, then a letter, click 0 and the last letter.
This should open the door.

I am way back in the game having problems. I keep losing things in inventory so am asking is there alternative ways to make and use things. Right now I need sufuric acid. I remember getting a bottle but now it is gone so I have used it someway somewhere. Where I picked it up, there is no more of it and have not as yet found a way to make it.

Not sure whether I should give up and just follow a WT and keep inventory items and their use in some kind of order or whether I can continue "doing things my way".

Sure do hate to resort to a WT - am enjoying the game just picking up items and wandering around. When I get stuck trying to do something, I peek at the WT and it says to use something I no longer have, can not find or have problems making more of same. In this case it is sulfuric acid. I have sulphur and tried combining it with various things but so far no luck.

Before the inventory grew to such huge proportions it was not too much of a chore to just try everything. But things are getting quite complicated now and things are flying into combinations of several items so I lose tract of what I was trying to do in the first place. Grrrr

Any suggestions of a way I can better use my time in this game?

Thanks so much Mag. I got the door open but what do I do about the clay I need. Is there some way I can get it?

DL -

In case you still have that knife with a handle, you should take it apart. Without the handle, it will work in many more places.

As for the sulfuric acid; you can pick up some near the projector. In addition you can create some if you have some iron sulfate which is found in the shelter where the monkey was.

Dutch, you can leave the sub and go back to the area near where you found Jep and get some more clay.

It took me awhile to catch on to the inventory also. One thing I learned was that you had to have the knife in your hand to get the bamboo and some of the plants. Without the knife you weren't able to do anything when you passed the cursor over some of the plants. luck

Hi, Dutch!

Did you return Jep to his spot in your inventory? If one of your inventory items is active, you won't be able to talk to the robot in Captain Nemo's quarters.

When you click on the robot be sure that you do not have any inventory seen at top left of the screen. That means you are trying to use that inventory on the robot. Just click on the robot with the cursor with no inventory selected.

Tallo Ho : Unless I am going blind, could find no more sulphate at the hut where the monkey was. Been looking everywhere else but can't find sulphate. Any ideas? Can't make the battery without it.
