Nope, still missing a bit of paper.

Got 4 sheets from the desk, 1 near the bed and another over towards the wayout. This has given me the Nara and Crystal settings. Got the BC settings from the electromagnets but the Rock... All I know is that the maximum must be 20.

I know what the setings are but don't know how the authors of the various walkthrough's got them. All mention the mustical notes but nobody tells me where to find them.

Fisicx,
I used Sirrus' written notes to give me at least one string setting for each of the locks, then I moved the sliders up and down until I got the maximum vibration for each lock. In addition to the 6 papers in the destroyed lab, there's one on the statue by the chair in the lower level and one in the hallway that leads from the chair to the elevator.

In his journal, Sirrus writes about making music with the crystals. The settings on the statue paper may have started out as an attempt at music.

Thank you dadguy, for the save to get me past those color clouds. I am at the place where I have to drain water so I can go below. Also busy with other stuff away from the computer so am not progressing as quickly as I was. I will keep you up to date on my progress but don't worry about my absence for a bit. Thanks again.
Love, Betty Lou

If this helps, when you sit in the spider chair, and lower the console, look at the numbers etched in the console to the left. this helped when I first could'nt find all the papers...

I'm somewhat confused about the marble/wheel/triangles puzzle. Let me see if I can keep it straight in my head: I look at that marblesinwheel and orient myself like a clock; My color pattern from my "dream" is two triangles (at the end of that puzzle)= my triangle on the left (facing it) is point up, top point is GREEN, bottom left point is RED, bottom right point is BLUE; my triangle on the right is inverted and has top left point being MAGENTA (pink?), top right point is YELLOW (not light green) and bottom point is CYAN (light blue). So which color should I place at the 6 o'clock position? and if I follow the FAQ solution I get all mixed up which colors go in the other vacant points.In other words if 6 o'clock which is point-up-triangle top point should be GREEN, then where do I go from there? nothing seems to be working no matter which set of "rules" for placement I use.....HELP please. Thanks
Love, Betty Lou frown woozy :kiss:

Here I am at the timed puzzle chair in Spire also. Haven't played for a week because I got so frustrated trying to beat the time. Can someone please do this puzzle for me if I send my game. I will, however need instructions about sending this because I have never done it before.

Thanks,

Hi Betty,

Yes, that clue from Dreamworld shows the two triangles, just as you saw. The key to that clue is not the "up" or "down" orientation, but the association of colors shown. They want you to associate the three 'major' colors, REG, BLUE, GREEN together, and they want you to associate the 'minor' colors, YELLOW, CYAN (light blue), and PURPLE together.

Using the "combination" you derived from the medalion in the Spire elevator, they want you to put those six colors into the inner "point" of each of the six pie shaped triangles that make up the door. Three will be major colors, and three will be minor colors (see how I defined them above). Then, to complete the combination, you compliment the other two points of each triangle with colors per the "clue" from Dreamworld (that is, if the point is RED, the other two are Blue & Green; if the point is Purple, the other two are Yellow & Cyan, etc.). The clue was trying to say that these three color combos combine to give you white, which was similar to the cloud puzzle "give us unity" challenge.

I know this is a mouthful, but I hope it helps. If you would like a better nudge, I'll be glad to supply one.

Good luck!

Dadguy

What is the secret in Serenia for carrying the water bubble offering to the water guide? I have caught the bubble, turned slowly, taken three slow steps down the path and slowly started to face the stairs leading up to the water guide. But every time I do this the bubble bursts. I have tried to get the bubble to the water guide in varying degrees about 50 or so times and can never make it without the bubble bursting somewhere along the way. Any suggestions?

Yes, Jim,

You have to find a SOURCE for the "gift" that is within 4 clicks of the destination or it will burst (it may be 5 clicks, but I am not sure).

There are multiple sources for each Gift, and the destination changes, so you should have a good understanding of the Age so you can choose the best site to start from.

Then move swiftly (i.e., clicking quickly as the view changes), but turn slowly to move towards the next click, but not TOO slowly.

It's a balance... good luck!

Dadguy

Jim,
It just takes persistence. You've got to move quickly enough to get there, but not too quickly. I took my bubbles from the fissure just down the path from the linking book and took it to the pond in front of the first small waterwheel.

Got it, Loisl!

It's on the way back. You had the far right gear set incorrectly, which is why you might have been having trouble.

Have fun! Now you'll get to read all about Sirrus!

Question, rather a technical one I fear = Since MYST IV Revelation is on DVD, are the saved games on my hard drive able to be saved/burned to a CD and reinstalled back to the hard drive later and does this affect their useability? I cannot decide if this is one of those DUH questions or not, and I don't have the answer, anyone else know? Thanks for your input. I want to copy, save my saved games from several games onto a floppy/floppies and/or CD's so I can delete them from my harddrive and free up some space/memory, but am afraid I will lose them if I am not careful.
Love, Betty Lou

Dadguy,
Thank you very much. Got the saved game and even got it downloaded properly. I had used that test in the Wt about moving all levers to the top and if the rock did not move the gears were correct. Maybe I just misread it.

Thanks again,

Loisl aka the butterfly lady

Betty Lou,

These saves can be archived just like any non-DVD game. The saves are just PC files, even though the game operates using the DVD drive.

They are large files. I have helped almost 100 people solve their puzzles and the save directory for "other players" that I keep is HUGE! Good idea to archive them.

Regards,

Dadguy
