Hi Dawna,

I know that you can get the wind to within 4 screens. It is a matter of choosing the right willow tree for the location that the wind is in at any given time.

However, if you've been working on it for a week... yikes! I don't know what that equates to in hours of actual play, but that can't be fun.

I have played this part through for others with no trouble so I have noted what happens when you are successful:

- Just after you click on the spirit, and immediate sparkle and a chime-like sound. Then it continues with a more firework-like response.

If you missed it, or were late, the spirit just flops immediately down to the ground or disappears.

Let me know how you make out!

Dadguy

dadguy -- I've been reading about problems with the Myst IV patch. Two gamers here are experiencing problems with it -- corana and BrownEyedTigre. Corana posted in Glitches, and BrownEyed in the Discussion forum.

Any advice on recovering from the patch? Do you think I should post that people should NOT use the patch at all until Ubi fixes it???

Yes, I read these reports. Corona is a knowledgable and experienced gamer. I saw that the patch ruined his graphics (he posted a screen capture of a black and white graphic appearance).

The problem is that I am reluctant to load the patch now that the problems have been reported. According to Corona, he had to do a fresh install to recover.

I will have to boot to UbiSoft to respond to the issues.

Sorry I can't offer any more credible advice.

Cheers,

Dadguy

Thanks dadguy. I've noted the problems with the patch in the title of all the Myst IV patch threads on the GameBoomers forums, and added links to appropriate threads on UruObsession and Ubisoft.

Avoiding this patch for now seems the better part of valor.

Yes...that is many hours of gameplay. Of course...the physical challenge I suffer from does make playing much slower than 'regular' gamers. [Not whining...just stating a fact.]


I do know EXACTLY what I need to do...however...the fluffies and the spirit seem to NEVER be within 4 screens..at the same time. frown

Oh well...I must forge on..!! I'll get it...eventually..!! [I must have faith...I must have faith...I must have faith...!]

Dawna, one thing I did (mine was a water spirit,though) was check where the nearest spot to the fluffies or bubbles etc. was to where the spirit was. If the spirit wasn't there I just walked on till I saw the spirit and scared it from that spot so that I scared it to the spot near my fluffies/bubbles. Then I carefully went and got the bubble and presented it to the spirit. Look for the little clearing/pool that the spirit will show up at. I am sure there is one near every supply of fire/fluffie/bubble that is only about 4 moves away. Hopefully this will help.

I am in dream and trying to do the colored clouds puzzle. I assume from reading this thread that I have to get all the clouds white, not just the ones immediately touching the center cloud.

If this is not correct, please let me know because to change all the clouds to white looks like a long and tedious task.

Thanks

Thanks Texaslady. I've just arrived in Dream and the Water Guide has told me that all the Ancestors must be in harmony. I am using Bert Jamin's WT. The multi colored clouds have formed around the center white cloud. From the WT, it seemed I just had to get the clouds touching the center to turn white.

I did this but didn't hear the voice so I assume I'm not finished.

From reading this thread, it looks like I have to get all the clouds to turn white. Is this correct?

Thanks

Yes, Satch, that's what you're trying to do. Here is a quote from a walkthrough about this part: SPOILER

Red ---> Purple ---> Blue ---> Cyan ---> Green ---> Yellow ---> White

Once you get to white, the cycle will begin again. The best way of doing this,
since the clouds are arranged in an hexagonal matrix, is to trace triangles or
do zigzag motions. Now, there are some rules:

- going from a cloud to another, moves the color up one level on the sequence
above
- going back on a color that you have just changed causes no effect at first,
but if you linger to much on it or pass through it without changing colors
around it, it will force a color change on the clouds that surround it
- white clouds are a bit sturdier to the effect above but will also change if
you brush past them

So when you are ready, begin. Don't be afraid to change a white into a red if
you need to or do other shapes other than triangles (like squares) if it is
needed at sometimes. When all clouds have been changed to white, the Spirit
Guide will tell you, you have succeeded...

Sue, that walkthrough of Coehlo Buda is a good one--I used it all the time until the GB Quest came along. It's still a very good source for directions all laid out in one place...

Here's another attempt to make the spider chair challenge a bit easier. Strategies are on top, and then the moves are listed. (Thanks to dadguy for his help with this.)

Serious Spoilers:

Spider Chair Strategy:

1. Before setting the sliders on the spider chair you must be certain that the gears under the chair are set correctly. Instructions for this are on page 24. If you push all three sliders to the very top of the console, and the knight in the top right lock does NOT tremble and retract, then you know that the gears aren’t set correctly.
2. Setting the sliders is tricky. The slider opening/window tends to “slip” downwards. Put the center of the slider window slightly ABOVE the green circle marker you’re aiming for – it’s more likely to stick there.
3. When you pull the slider to the bottom, there is a slot ZERO possible below slot 1. Make sure you don't go too low when trying to set slot #1.
4. Each slider sequence (i.e., 6-12-4 is one sequence) can be set in any order – you don’t have to go left, center, right each time.
5. Once the first two sliders are in position for a sequence, you don’t have to accurately set the third slider at all – you just have to move the third slider up or down PAST the third setting, hitting it for only an instant as you continue to the next setting without letting go.
6. The final setting is easy – just bring all the sliders up to the top as fast as you can. Even here, though, they can slip down – make sure they’re completely at the top.
7. The order of the settings: 6-12-4, 3-1-7, 10-5-5, 12-12-12.


Here is the step-by-step fastest order for tuning the Spider Chair Crystals

RIGHT SLIDER to 4.
LEFT SLIDER to 6. (Timed portion doesn’t begin until you set the center slider.)
CENTER SLIDER to 12 up at the very top (don’t let go) CENTER SLIDER to 1.
LEFT SLIDER to 3.
RIGHT SLIDER past 7 (don’t let go), then down to 5.
CENTER SLIDER to 5 (center slider knob on a horizontal line with the right slider knob).
LEFT SLIDER TO 12 (go past 10 without stopping).
CENTER SLIDER TO 12.
RIGHT SLIDER TO 12.

Well, lagging well behind almost everybody else, I finished the game yesterday. What a great game!

I have one question (so far):

Spoiler

Changing all the ancestor's galaxy-looking things to the color white was quite frustrating. I finally managed it, but it took me a long time.

WAS Yeesha's galaxy-looking thing among them? I never found one that didn't change color. And why didn't Sirris's brain-lock appear the whole time? Wasn't he controlling her mind the whole time? Why did the brain-lock only appear when we went back into the world of dream near the end?

Anyway, I was wondering: if you were prepared to cheat, could you leave the world of dream WITHOUT finishing the turning-everything-white puzzle, and still be able to do the marble door lock? In other words, is the solution at the end of the turning-everything-white puzzle always the same (red, green, dark blue make white -- light blue, yellow, pink make white).

Edit: I guess this was more than just one question.

Hi Becky! Congrats on finishing.

I never tried the door puzzle without the cloud puzzle. My guess is that you can finish without it.

But, you could be a pioneer and try it from a save before the cloud puzzle and let us all know!

Maybe someone else has already done that...

Cheers,

Dadguy
