eww...I got lucky on that puzzle. Just think about HOW electromagnetic fields actually works and pay attention to the panels...
That should help out a bit. =)

dadguy and rain2,

I'm on that puzzle in Spire NOW. I've gotten the ship up to where I can get on it once...went and got on, couldn't get it to fly...got back off, went back to the panel and screwed it up and haven't gotten it back up to flying level again since! LOL Once I get IN the ship, I'm not sure how to get it to FLY!!!

Any hints on actually FLYING it??

OK, you need a proper balance of PULL from the top magnet and PULL from the bottom magnet. You are where I was... you probably have one power light on the top power panel and 6 power lights on the bottom power panel. This is the correct differential (i.e., the bottom must have 5 more lights than the top to get the ship at the docking bay). But, you must get the CORRECT balance AND level of power to get the channel open to cross to the floating palace.

So, if you can find a way to get TWO power lights on the top panel and SEVEN power lights on the lower panel, the ship will have the proper differential to float at the dock level PLUS it will have the proper level to fly across.

So, play with the slider on the top power panel first to get it to TWO power lights, then fool with the bottom one to get it to SEVEN.

By the way, the power lights are the ones at the top row. There are four possible on the top panel and seven possible on the bottom panel.

If you need help with how to get them to these levels, give us a call!

Dadguy

PS: I haven't started Haven yet, so it's good that you went back to Spire first... we can stay together on our Quest!

Right now, I've been to Spire and finished most of it. Not sure what to do about the numbers just yet. Been to Serenia and finished about half, and now in Haven just to check things out. So far so good. I'm erratic, aren't I? hehe. =)

I'm way behind you all. I'm wandering around and taking everything in. You can see shadows from the clouds moving across the rocks! I watched a bird at a bird feeder. Everything moves and drifts in the wind. It's amazing.

If Atrus had really wanted me to accomplish tasks quickly, he shouldn't have put me in such a fun place to explore.

Whenever I click to go forward, there's a pause, almost as though the game is reading from the DVD drive, which it isn't because I've done a full install. I'm getting used to it, though it does slow movement a bit.

I checked out the subtitles. Only in Dutch in my game too. I am VERY curious as to why.

Maggiebe, for the blurriness, you might want to go to the Options--Graphics Options menu and turn off "Depth of Field" effects.

That's an effect that blurs everything except for the 8 or 9 pixels surrounding the cursor. It's supposed to simulate depth of field, but in my opinion it just makes everything look blurry...

I love the animated backgrounds in this game, though. smile

maggiebe, you may need to update your video drivers. Also, that camera focus thing sounds strange. Maybe you should make sure the special effect for Depth of Field is disabled in the graphic setup options.

Becky, I loved that cloud/sunlight effect that you see when you first land at the entrance of Tomahna. I stood and watched for 30 minutes. Fantastic!

I am way behind you guys...And I am at the part with the view puzzle...the power is up and I am at the observation deck...Now I need to put the combination cystal in the panels that you slide open...My question is? Do I need the crystal in the drawer in Artus desk to put them in the panels?

If so, I can't grab them it won't let me, I could tap them, but can't pick them up...I took a picture of the cystals combination of Artus journal, sat in the chair and got a close up view of the telescope, turn on the anntenna button..

What am I doing wrong?...Liz

Looks like all is good. Do you see Static on the Viewer screen? If so, then you're all set for the puzzle and you DON'T need those crystals in the drawer; just the picture you took. You'll figure out the puzzle eventually that way. Hope that helps a little. I don't like solving puzzles here unless someone REALLY needs it. =)

Demosthenes -- thanks for the hint on the "depth of field" option. I'm going right in and turning it off!

Has anybody listened all the way through the music that plays when you see the main menu? I've listened four times.

Dadguy -- I know exactly what you mean about just standing and watching things! I'm going to restart my game and NOT do the thing that makes Yeesha mad. I want to see if that changes anything.

Jenny -- yes, let us know! It has occurred to me that perhaps they didn't get any Dutch voice actors, but wanted to reach their fans in the Netherlands, so they put Dutch subtitles in with the English voice acting.

Hmmm. Wouldn't it be interesting to see Atrus speaking French or Italian? I'd probably have to reinstall the game though. Wouldn't be worth it.

It's still taking me awhile to get used to the cursor. I like it's flexibility, that you can push and pull things. It looks weird as a pointer, though. I'm not sure I like looking at a severed 3 dimensional hand. I keep wanting to connect it to an arm. Somehow the flat 2 dimensional cursor in the previous Myst games didn't have that association.

I might just read the manual and see if I'm missing out on something The Hand can do.

Liz,

You do not need any crystals for the puzzle. The crystals are built into the machine. You just have to figure out the settings to load the right crystal and right color for each of the five little doors.


Journal note:

Someone mentioned earlier that the journals can be recited by the actors rather than reading them. This is done with Yeesha's amulet... open the book then click the amulet and the actor will read the content. The reason I mention this (it's been pointed out already once in this topic) is that the actors do such a great job on the readings...it should not be missed.

Demosthenes DOF is not supported by this card I'll check for driver updates. While playing Aura and having problem with the temple circle puzzle I tried alot of different things to be able to view this puzzle up close, nothing worked finally we switched the Geforce out for another graphic card
(ATI) older version, which worked well and I was able to proceed. Of course this older version didn't work with revelation, so it was switch back. I read on the ubi supportsite that that I need the Geforce fx only? I will buy this card
and if I have to switch it out to play another game I will be done, I have patience with the game not for installing hardware. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

NO! NO! NO! What's happening?????
Holding my breath in anticipation for the beginning and it WON'T START!!!!

Why does the play button say "play disabled (disc 2)"?

What is wrong? Somebody, quick, HELP ME, PLEASE!

A few minutes later:
Oh, Crimeny, never mind. I am so hyper about this game I can't think straight. I had disc 1 in and then when I got that message and put disc 2 in, still got the same message. Had to quit out of game and go back in with disc 2 to get it to start. Now I am getting the message my graphics card needs to be updated. I think I am getting a migraine.
