I'm using Bert Jammin's walkthrough and am having trouble in this age.

First of all, when I try to adjust the two levers beneth the green screen, the inner ring does not seem to turn.

Next,on the right side of the red-lit stairs, when I move the sliders, I don't see a green button.

Lastly, I can't find the telescope.

Is the first problem affecting the others?

Thanks

Not sure what you mean, Satch. Are you referring to the bluish power screen that is around the back of the red-lit room?. I don't know of any inner ring. Help me out on that.

If the green button doesn't light then maybe you don't have power up yet (using the bluish lit screen around the back).

Hi! Try the opposite to make the inner ring move.
Move left lever to the middle and right lever all the way to the right.
My problem: I have replayed this era probably 10 times. I have followed Bert's w/t and then the Prima Guide. I cannot get the Bahro to take the slate. I even climbed to the top to check the telescope.
I've made sure to leave the scope focused on whatever the Guide or Bert suggest and follow the steps before and after such.
I have no added pedestal icon with which to link. Is the slate supposed to remain where the wooden bridges are during all of the Todelmer steps? Must and need I replay it one more time w/o taking the slate first to Todelmer? Help, please! Tx. cry

Mary, what symbol are you drawing that you are trying to get the Bahro to take?

It is not important to have the telescope stay on the image to get the Bahro to take the slate and deliver it to another pedestal. The slate is not supposed to stay on the "home" pillar, it needs to be delivered by the Bahro to the pillar across the way to progress.

Let me know what you are drawing. I can email you a tiny pic if you'd like.

Awwk! I don't understand. I've drawn the three legged one headed figure with three circles as "hands" so many times.
Now I do all the steps and return to the pedestal in the "arrival" bubble and draw the "icon" on the slate.
I return the slate to the pedestal. I walk towards the stairs. I turn around and should see an icon appear that is similar to what I've drawn and then one is to touch this icon to progress, is what I understand and aim for.
Am I putting the slate in the wrong place?
Should I be back where the bridges are?
I can't go anywhere else as I don't see the icon and the slate remains.
This is so tough, I've emailed a UBI mod who's posted a rather supportive response in a thread there. Still, in case s/he cannot help me better, please describe what to do in your terms.
Others may end up stuck at this point and for a long time a good post might matter to others in the future as well as now.
This is like the dreadful Schizm computer generated puzzle. I've never been so stubborn and stuck although I did give up on MIV. (Last sentence lacks a logic but you should grasp my frustration.) Tx!!!

Hi,

I had one of my symbols up side down in my drawing at one point so.....make sure its drawn with the head on top and the 3 legs with circles at the bottom.

Also make sure you drop the slate on the ground and not place it on the pedestal. I hope I understood your problem and explained it so you can understand and if not....someone will correct me...I am sure.

Reading Maryc's post, I agree with her on how to set the rings. I have been working on that for a couple of days, and could never get the power on with setting the left to the top and right to the middle. I finally set the right to the top and left to middle. It worked!

Mary,

Perhaps you were missing the basic operation of the slate....

After you draw the symbol, you must drop the slate on the ground (anywhere!); don't put it on the pedestal. Then, with it glowing blue on the ground, back away from it until the Bahro comes (he will come only of he feels you are a safe distance away). He will pick up the slate and disappear using his linking capabilities, then he will deliver the slate to the 2nd pedestal. When this happens, a new link will appear on pedestal #1 that will allow you to link to the second pedestal, which is our there about 500 yards away. You will have a great view of THIS pillar from the 2nd pedestal when you get there.

ALSO: So we stay focused, here is some basic terminology discussion. When we refer to the term "pillar"; this is the huge peice of rock that makes the island we are walking upon. There are three "pillars" that we can travel to in Todelmer. One is large like the one we start on, the other is small and only is about 50 feet in diameter. I didn't want you to confuse the terms pillar and pedestal.

Let us know if this does it.

Dadguy: Well I hadn't reached a pillar so I didn't know the vocab. to use yet. Thanks!
It does help all to know the common vocab.
Sometimes we doe have brain cell loss, though, and can't find the correct vocab. Such explanations help and patience is nice for us brain damaged.

Hi Whistler! Try the steps opposite of those given in Bert's w/t to get the inner wheel going.
It works. If you need more specifici help,
post again! I think I posted the specific steps in another area in this forum. Too tired to read my recent post but I want to help you progress.
Keep in touch here as I messed up some basic stuff and am a bit ahead of you. So when you bumble where I've bumbled, maybe I can help!
You can also PM me! Others will help too!

Just for terminology's sake, you start Todelmer ON the #1 pillar, so in effect you most certainly have reached a pillar. There are two more of interest that you can visit. A pillar is the tall stone structure that juts out of the planet you are on. Look out across the horizon and you'll see many, but only three (including the one you arrive upon) are of interest and can be walked upon. To be a good communicator, I just wanted to make sure you knew what I was referring to.

Enjoy!

Thanks for all your help. Finally got the power on and was able to find the telescope. I have drawn the Bahro sign and he has added the new sign to the pedestal. Looks like I'm on my way again.

Hi! I'm already much beyond that. It was such a help! I wanted to thank you again!
Just curious. Did my flu shot cause some reaction or is anyone else becoming dizzy playing MV?
I never have felt this before. It could be just me, probably. It's such great fun. But I've played many a game and for two days I've become dizzy! eek Haha! Could be just mental. (Yes, I take breaks and even exercise. I'm not "living MV" but am enjoying it, to be sure!)
Right now, I'm taking my time while progressing but also looking for one blue and one green thing that the Bahro's do not like at all. At one place the green one seems to repeat. He's hard to photo though!
I might try a screen shot to
"capture" him as I wonder if the Myst V program isn't capturing this guy's existence!
Also, there are never any skies that compare to the ones in Myst games. Look at the blue and the clouds. Nothing like those skies in any game! They are the best!

Rikke, welcome to Gameboomers!!! bravo bravo bravo

Are you referring to the two sets of levers (one on top and one in the middle) near the loading dock metal grate?

Once you have set the top lever RIGHT and pressed the MIDDLE lever down once, a large gear above is rotated to reveal a little white light just above it. So, turn your telescope view to the left and zoom in above the large gear to see the clue.
