Hi!

I read how you go from first person to third person, but am stuck in the clock tower. I am Daryl and stepped through the gap from his hotel porch to the clock tower. Looked and the bas relief and discovered that there was something underneath it. Now I want to go back out through the gap onto the porch, but I can't get him over to the other side! I used the arrows and used the space bar, and he won't walk out the gap to the porch. Help! Does it make any difference if we use first or third person in this game?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Use the third person to move around the clock tower to get to the gap and through the gap.
First person is to look at things only but the character cannot move forward.

Move the cursor until you can see it go through the gap. Maybe that might be the problem. Good luck!

Hi Linda & MaG, wave

You have to have your cursor where you can read the word 'gap'. Then just leftclick the right spot.

Thanks! I really appreciate this bit of advice! That probably was the reason why I couldn't get to go through the gap!

Again thanks MaG and Miartisian.

You're welcome, Linda. smile

The navigation in this game is very tricky. Sometimes you can't move forward until you hit the spacebar and get the closeup view to click on something. When you are having trouble, I suggest trying both views and both right & left clicking. Different spots will require different actions. Usually, you will need to see the descriptive word to move there though.

Good luck and have fun! Holler if you need more help.

Hi,

Does it matter if either one of the characters talks to Greta, or the caretaker, in order to progress through the game? Both characters tried to get into the caretaker's door to chat, but it was locked, and another time as Victoria, she went there and took the chisel from his shelf. He wasn't home at the time. Now, I am Victoria, and I took the necessary items from the Lab -syringe, acid, picture of Jude and necklace, and blood. I tried talking to Anderson and going to inventory to show him the items, but she says that it can't be done. What should I do to get him to talk and give me the keys to the old wing?

How can I access the PD and see what notes I have and things that I may have missed?

Thanks for the help!

Linda,

If you can't get Victoria to do those things. Transfer the items to Darrell and let him do them. It was trial and error to see who can do certain actions better.

As for the inventory items -
Pressing the Tab key opens the inventory and pressing it again closes it.
Left click on the name of the current character at the top of the screen will open the inventory of the second character. Then left click on an item on that list will transfer that item to the current character's inventory.

Thanks MaG! I heard that there is a PD that can be opened and reveal some facts and information about certain characters. How do you get the PD opened?

Thanks for the help!

Hi Linda,

To access the PDA, where a record of conversations is recorded, press the P key or the telephone icon in inventory

Thanks MaG! Am finally getting used to the game and the various ways to travel and use the inventory. It is a good game! Hope that I find what I am looking for befor the time limit is up!

Hi,

I am stuck just after the sand trap and the medallions in the Lion's moouth. I tried bkothe characters and got stuck at the part where Greta was supposed to scold either character, upon their return to the castle. I tried as either character, by going upstairs and finding the cook, Steven drunk, sleeping in the Guest Bedroom on the 4th Floor. Went back downstairs to the kitchen, and the cook wasn't there. Tried on several occassions. I want to trigger the scene with Greta, but can't. Please help me with this part! Also, where can I locate the Rose in the Dining Room. In the WT, it says to use the Bag of Blood on the Rose, but where is the Rose in the DR?

Thanks for the help!

Linda think

Linda, did you enter the Castle by the Nauturium? If so, you should meet an angry Greta Snyder. The rose should be on a tray in the dining room, but if you haven't had the scene with Greta, it may not show up.

I seem to remember something about others having trouble with this part--I'll check and see what got them past it.

Okay, I knew it was there somewhere--check out this old thread ...

Thanks Jenny! I will try the different suggestions and try and see if Darryl will get a scolding by Greta. I will be back, if he doesn't!

The save worked! Darrel got a scolding from Greta and the cook woke up! Now Darrel is going to the Dining Room and use the blood on the rose. Found the rose on a tray on the table in the DR. Hopefully, the blood will work on the rose?

Thanks!

Thanks MaG! Am having problems with the saves. I click on the save and the time of the save appears, but there is no picture-just a black box with the time that I made the save! Am writing the number and time down to remember what the save was about. Also, am experiencing difficulty with the scale puzzle. I place the coin in left pan, Incense on right pan, but am having problems with the envelopes. When the puzzle is finished, in the inventory, I have 2 doses of Incense and a coin, but no envelopes! Could you explain what I did wrong?

Thanks!
