I have tried and tried to get this poor guy out of the "hole" room with no success. Does anyone have a save so that I can continue on? Any help will be appreciated. I've adjusted light on my monitor but no luck. Help!!!

Have you tried turning the light on in the room? Right after entering the room, turn towards your right and walk, hugging the wall. The lamp is higher up on the wall. My note says, R from D, F 1X, slight L - 1 step walk straight point slightly R. Unfortunately the lamp doesn't stay on long, you should be able to see enough to get to the ax, you can see the holes on each side of you. The way back is harder, I did not take notes, too busy trying not to fall in. It is a matter of aiming at the correct door and taking only one step at a time. After you get the axe, turn to the L, arrow pointing at the R door, Step 1X. Turn L some more, you will be pointing at a hole, L of the doors, step 1X only. Then turn R, pointing at the middle of the doors, go R towards the light, hugging the wall until you reach the exit. This last is from Tally Ho's w/t here on GB, he has screenshots to help, somehow I remember doing something else. Sorry I don't have any of my saves on the computer.

I am in the tunnel trying to light the torches. Can't really see anything. I have found five torches but after hours I can't find the sixth. This is my third time starting this game and I have yet to get past this part. Please does anyone have a save after lighting all the torches?

Thanks, I am now trying to talk to the brain but all I can get is one sentence. I have mixed a fluid that is green injected the brain and activated but can't get it to talk any more than one sentence.
Please help, this game is so frustrating.

Hi Charward,

Try pulling/pushing all the buttons below. You should get different sentences from all of them but you may still have to do something else. I couldn't get continuous sentences right away. Have you been to the boiler room yet? I think i had to do that first and come back.

I have been to the boiler room, started the fire and started the generator. I finally found the dark valve on the floor and the master switch. I have mixed a fluid. It's green and used the syringe on the brain. But he says one sentence and nothing I do after that gets him talking again. There is the button below the brain, three buttons on the left of the machine and a lever on the right to get the machine going. But I so far can not get questions to put to the brain or get him to talk more than the one line.

I ahve not played the game but it looks like from reading the wt:

That you have to be sure that the fluid injected is prepared correctly.
Inject it to brain.
That you activate the fluid after injecting it by pulling the lever beneath the jar.
Then get Brain talking by turning on the power with the button on the left, and flipping the switch at the right until he talks to you.

Hope one of the above might trigger something. If not replay again and see what might be shaken loose. smile

I have replayed this over and over and I never have gotten more than one line from the brain. I don't know if I can continue without hearing more from him. If hearing all his information is necessary than I doubt that I can continue the game.

Hi Charwood,

I don't know if I have a save there but will check in the morning and let you know.

I had a hard time there also. I just kept pushing buttons & pulling levers until I finally got it.

Hi Charwood,

I have a ton of saves but can't find that one. They're all huge (almost a mb or over one) so I can't send a bunch to let you try them since I have dial-up. Sorry. frown

Try pressing the buttons quickly, pulling the levers and doing it all randomly. That's how I finally got it to work. I hope that helps.

Melanie

I just finished this games a few days ago. So my memory is pretty fresh.
There are three push buttons on the left. You press the middle button to turn
the machine on. Now, the switch on the right has five positions. Switch it all the
way to the right. The middle light above the the seven switches in the middle
will light up. Press the swith below the light and the machine will say something
(frankly, I can't understand what it said). Now there are three lights on.
Pressing the switch below each of these lights will lead to certain information.
When the machine asks you a question pay attention to the lights that
light up while it's asking. This will tell which switch to use to get the information
you're looking for.

A save isn't going to help you here because all you get from the machine is
information (no inventory items or anything). However, if you need a save
somewhere down the line I have many.

I did finally get brain to talk some. Very difficult to understand. I heard something about the days of the week. How do you know when he's finished? I finally just gave up and went on. I am now in what I think is the torture chamber and the WT says I need styrax from the briefcase. Where is the briefcase? Should I have found it some place else or is it in this room. Everything is so dark.
Help, please.

Yes, first go to your inventory screen, click on the lower circle on the left
of that screen and see if it's there. If it isn't you'll have to go
back to that room previous to the room with pits in the floor. It's in that
chest on the floor as you walk in.

I got everything I could from the brain but the most important thing is the
days of the week stuff. If you want to solve the puzzle without the walkthrough
you'll need it. But first, look at those slips of paper in the desk drawer
and write down what you see. The names on those papers are what the brain is
talking about in connection with the days of the week.

This is a tough puzzle and I confess I finally had to look at the walkthrough.
If you don't get it or don't want to bother with it I have save just past it.

Found the briefcase and now I am in the Library with another question. I have found the books mentioned in the walkthrough but I can't give them to the Librarian or examine them. Must be doing something wrong but I can't figure out what. Please help me again.
