Hi, I started this game last week, lovin' it! I am stuck at the timed puzzle in Spire, in that chair trying to set the vibrating tones to open up the bride. ***QUESTION=Have the w/t from GB and read both ways of doing it, am tired of trying, please does someone have a saved game for this puzzle? And is it easy to use in my saved game files?*** I assume it is since I am allowed to name each time I save but with URU saving was automatic and very annoying, couldn't go back to where I wanted to when I wanted to unless I used the linking books, but I did love the game/s. Thanks for your help
Love, Betty Lou laugh

Betty Lou, did you go to the Myst quest area that Becky and Dadguy and others did? I think that the gurus of the game don't recommend using anyone's saved games since the game isn't linear and you could end up with solved areas that you haven't even seen yet.

Ah, I see that that would/could be a problem. Where do I find a link to that site, please?
Love, Betty Lou

Betty Lou,

I hope you have fun in Myst IV. What a beautiful place.

If you decide to do so, I will be glad to take your save file from where you get stuck, solve the puzzle and then return the save. It is pretty straightforward, how it works. The saves are under "My Documents/myst4-revelation savegames/" and are dated. The names that you use in the game are not part of the filename, so you have to ID them by date and time.

By sending me the save, you will get it back (copy it back into that directory) and can continue without losing any progress or content.

However, as you well know, the Myst IV FAQs offer a lot of guidence for solving on your own which can be immensly satisfying.

Enjoy!

Dadguy

Hi Betty Lou,

Some have had trouble with emailing saves over 10MB on yahoo. Check the size (and your email inbox, where I gave some suggestions on reducing the size of your save files).

I'll keep looking for your email.

EDIT: Aha! I just got it! I'll have it back in a jiffy!

Regards,

Dadguy

Hi dadguy, sorry I sent it to you so many times, but one or two of those times I got the message "message not sent" and some problem with it, but it must have gone anyway. Thank you so much - I have made it all the way to Serenia and it is so beautiful here......doing a "hunt" for the elusive wooden box with journal, having a great time just enjoying the scenery and atmosphere, love those butterflies! Thanks again
Love, Betty Lou :kiss:

Sent the save, Betty Lou.

This is an easy one:

RIGHT Wheel - long tone (1.5 sec)
LEFT wheel - short tone (0.5 sec)
RIGHT Wheel - long tone (1.5 sec)

...just in case you want to give it another try.

Have fun!

Dadguy

Thanks dadguy, got it and am on my way. Have a question for everyone/anyone = I am sitting up in a tree in a 'chair' looking down on a snake-thingy and trying to get my hand to OPEN so I can "stroke" it (the walkthrough says to strike it, don't know why) so I can tap it on the nose/snoot, but my hand won't open and using it in the 'closed' position gets me nowhere. Am I doing it to the right 'snake' or am I supposed to climb down and go back and find the first one I saw? Thanks for the 'nudge'...
Love, Betty Lou

Hi Betty,

Many folks have trouble with this one. Be aware that the hand won't change (or open) when you put it in the right place. There is no indication that you've got the hand in the right place... you just have to trust that you've got it right.

Here is an explanation from the Myst IV FAQs:

"The snake puzzle worked for me the first time and every subsequent time without a second try needed. So, I suspect there is a matter of understanding the process that is missing.

Find the lower right black stripe on the snake. Click (and hold the button down) with your fingertips on the right edge of the stripe and drag the mouse horizontally to the left over the stripe. At the left end of the stripe stop and release the mouse button. I think of it as petting the little guy, but it important that you stroke right to left.

Do this three more times and the snake should come alive, then click his head quickley to send him away."

Hope this helps you solve it right away!

Dadguy

Hey, thanks, it finally worked. Seems that you have to 'stroke' it more than four times but all of a sudden the snake 'reared up' and I tickled his nose and away he went. Thanks.
Question - I have linked back to Serenia (chapter 5 part 2) but cannot find that other snakethingy, walkthrough says to use the ZIP-modus thing bottom right of my screen and click "on the image with the statue between the two stairs", but there are only 3 images in that circular thing and none of them are this "-", so how do I find that snakey thing now? Wandering around and getting lost as usual.
Love, Betty Lou

Betty,

I suggest you have a look at my crude Serenia Map. This is part of the Myst IV FAQ documents found HERE.

If you scroll to just before the very end of this document the map can be seen. The snake puzzle in Serenia is located at the spot marked "Water Diverter #4" (brown square). I rarely used the zip images because they change depending where you are and that makes it hard to guide someone.

So, if you want to try the old fashioned way and just walk from wherever you are to where the above Water Diverter is, you'll find a water gate that has a valve locked with a snake puzzle. A broken walkway prevents you from getting to it from the north, so you have to walk past the Protectors area and the across the long wooden footbridge from the south to get to it. Same method is used to unlock it.

Have fun!

Dadguy

Find your way to the temple entrance and keep going past the temple and the dream chamber. You'll bear right and will eventually see the long decorative poles that point to an island. You'll see stairs that will take you to a broken bridge. If you turn to the right, there's another wooden walkway which leads to the water wheel.

I'm crawling along slower than a snail with a beautiful bubble on my hand and am beginning to believe the darn thing is on a timer....go two steps sooooooooooooooooooooo slooooooooooooooooooowly and "poof" it's gone, again and again, and again, and again.......boring! Would like to be able to succeed at it but not if it is going to take me a week to walk one step and retain the darned thing....have read both w/t's and the FAQ's and can't see how I can walk or move any slower than I already am.....POO!
Love, Betty Lou frown
