This may be the third time I've posted the same topic. I can't seem to figure how to do it. Anyway, here goes (again) I'm in Taghira. Drew the image of heat. Bahro picks it up. I run to the base of the heat pipes with the Blue, and then the orange buttons. But can't figure how to move the switches. Noting works. Just a transparent hand. What am I doing wrong? Also, how do you erase a slate in order to re-draw a symbol? Thank you.

To erase the slate, click on the image located in the lower left side of the slate that has two diagonal lines going thru the shape of the slate.

If the three switches at either the red or the blue pipe terminals don't rise up when the steam is activated by the Bahro, then you need to be sure that you've moved all of the switches outside each of the buildings the pipes go to. Once you've done this, then activate the steam effect, the switches at the red and blue pipe hubs will rise up and you can move them. Hint: be sure to look at the water pool as you move the pipe hub switches!

I'll add to that. These switches, when in the raised position, don't work like you might expect. I had the best luck by putting my cursor on the bottom of the switches (not the long extended arm, but the round bottom side) then if you want the switch to go right, drag it right (you might think the opposite since you are grabbing the other side of the switch). It works great.

Let us know how you make out.

How do I make th switches raise? Does the slate need to be blank before I draw the heat symbol? If it does, how do I erase? I had to draw the heat symbol beside the ankh sign. Thanks for the quick reply. I'm still scratching my head.

I presume you solved it!

To make the switches raise, do the HEAT symbol, which should be in a memory location at the bottom of your slate.

Got the switches-saw the light- went back to bubble to pick up slate again. Dropped it by the lake a second time. Saw the Bahro pick up the slate again. Saw the light. But where is the path across the lake. I know you gave a hint to be sure and look at water pool while moving the switches, but I didn't get the time to do that. Does looking at the water pool reveal the path across the lake. Maybe ai'm too old for this game, but I'm really trying. The trouble is: I'm out of my mind. Please leave a message! Thanks so much. Bruce and dadguy, or anybody else.

Della --- yes, the slate has to be blank to write any other symbol on it. Click on the erase symbol in the lower left hand area of the slate to erase. Once you've created a symbol that the Bahro can use, you don't have to redraw it again. It appears in the lower left side if it a symbol they use to manipulate their world. It appears on the right hand side if it is symbol on other pedestals. Just click on the symbol to use and it is redrawn on the slate for you.

As you set the switches at the two pipe terminals, steam comes up on different pipes in the water pool. As the steam appears, life forms appear on the pipes (just as Esher mentioned about "life living under the ice"). When you set the pipe terminal switches correctly, both the red and blue ones, you have created a path across the pool. You have to experiment with the pipe switches to get it right (or you can look at Bert Jamin's WT under his post in this forum for the exact settings).

I did it myself. I just went back and crossed the lake, but the bahro doesn't like my drawing!
I don't like my drawing either! Wheelie Gwenda

I finally found the path and got across the lake. Just had to work a little harder. Thanks for your help. Now I'm like some of the others , trying to figure out the shapes to draw. Thamks for the hint about going to the lake to see the path while moving the switches. Thanks dadguy and Bruce Fielder!!!!

You're most welcome Della. Re the Keep pedestal's image, it may be hard to see particularly as the Keep island will move from you as Esher said. You must make the Bahro take you there via the slate.
Hint: look closely at the tomb stones and how they are stacked on one another. Good luck!

I can not make out the symbol on the pedestal in the keep. I've squinted so hard and often that my eyes are now blurry. I've even used a magnefying glass. But resorting to this finally made me think that there must be another way of seeing this symbol.
What have I missed?
Incidently my screen is at 600x800.

No, you are right. It is hard to see.

If you want, you can try Bert Jamin's walkthrough which shows it also, but it's a little hard to see there as well.

Hi all,

I had a really weird thing happen in my game in trying to get across the lake to get to the Bubble Keep.

Maybe the keep was somewhere else I don't know.

The walkthrough said to click on the heat symbol on the slate and drop the slate. Next you had to turn around and take 2 steps forward and walk around the path across the lake.

Well.....I tried to walk every which way I could think of and never did find the path to the keep.

I finally decided to just go to the slate and draw the symbol that the walkthrough had and luckly it worked. The symbol was placed on the pedestal.

Yes, that will work, but takes some of the fun and gameplay out.

Did you see the path of "growth" across the pond after you turned on the heat? If you did, then the path across is to start in the middle, turn right to the right end, turn left to the far end, turn left to the middle of pond, then go forward on that white peninsula in the center. You must make sure you are careful and do not fall off of the "growth" on the pond or else you'll have to start over from the beginning.

Good luck,

Dadguy
