Hi,

I never got any growth in my game or else I would have tried to walk on that.

I even tried more than once to use the slate to melt the ice lake but nothing happened. That is why I thought maybe there was another way across that I just wasn't seeing.

I finally got the symbol for the "Keep". And it was one of many that I tried before. I'm beginning to think my 'Bahro' for that earlier one was a very fussy judge and simple refused to accept my drawing. lol

i have tried repeatedly to draw the keep, and it just will not have it. Sometimes it takes it from the first bubble and goes to the pedestal in the snow outside the huts and leaves it there. Does anybody know what this means? wheelie

Wheelie,

Are you certain you have the symbol correct? For me it was very difficult to see across that "divide".

If the Bahro delivers it to a pedestal, it's either because he thought it looked like the symbol on that pedestal, or it's a bug (in my opinion).

If you want I can email you a tiny picture of the symbol from the pedestal at the Keep.

thanks that would be helpful.I am at present drawing the symbol on the slate whilst facing the bubble with the keep in it. The bahro just keeps picking it up and putting it down again. Gwenda

My Bahro was not very fussy. I got the symbol completely wrong and he still accepted it.

I did take a screen shot afterwards and blow it up using MS Paint - easy to see what it looks like if you do that.

Wheelie, I have another idea. Check to see if the HEAT symbol is on one of the little icons on the lower right of the slate (when it is in your hands and UP for drawing). I think that if you have drawn it successfully once you MUST use the icon to re-activate it, or else the Bahro will get confused.

Let us know if that does it for you.

In the WT for Taghira, Bert says to draw an Ankh on the slate. Well, I drew about 20 ankhs without success before realizing he meant anchor. Drew that and Viola! the little monster took it.

well, I have been trying to draw the keep symbol now for four days. I have had it as near perfect as I can get it. My hubby has tried, my carers have tried and at last, it finally worked. How frustrating, still press on for further frustrations I have no doubt Gwenda

How hard can it be to duplicate two rectangles connected by two lesser rectangles? I've drawn the dern thing a dozen times and had it at least as good as Bert's WT screenshot, but to no avail. This the fussiest, glitchiest game Ubisoft has come up with. My guess is they released it before it was ready.

OK guys, I finally got to the keep! I think the secret is...after you draw the keep symbol on the slate and drop it on the ground, leave the bubble and go clear to the end of the ice cave before you turn around and watch the monkey take the slate. Worked for me.
Good luck,
Jerry

I drew it and it was recognized the first time in all of the puzzles.

This is the least glitchy Myst game I have ever played.

OK, I'm stuck at the end. The symbol on the last pedestal is too far away and I can't see it to copy it down. Anyone know of a better picture.

Got it. Was drawing the proper symbol but that slate can sure be picky
