The clue is in the bathroom. And be sure to remember to right click on all active items.

Thanks Marian. I haven't seemed to be able to get in the bathroom but I shall try again. Martin did mention that the plant could use some water but he didn't pick it up. Only enough to find a key under it.

Yes, trying to remember to right click. The cursor color is helping with that. It won't change if you can right click.

Edit: Marian, are you at Barbora's place of employment or in her apartment? The clue to her home computer was in the washroom of the apartment. I am at her work place (sorry I cannot remember the name of it. It is not much further along in the game though. I cannot get in the washroom here and the other password doesn't work in this computer.

2nd Edit: Aha! I figured it out!

Thank you!!

Good for you for figuring it out. smile

I played this game many years ago and only really remember one thing about it - a puzzle much later in the game, one which sent me straight to a walkthrough because I never would have solved it on my own, ever!

I last played the game 10 years ago. In fact, I had installed it on my sister's computer and it was still installed and that's why I started playing it. I certainly remember parts of the game but I cannot remember the puzzle you may be talking about. I know I read something about an impossible puzzle. Maybe I purposely blotted it out of my memory. Time will tell. Right now I have just entered the camp.

Just out of curiosity though, were you giving me the hint for the office computer or were you in the apartment? The hint is the same, but changed somewhat. Either way, it helped me while re-looking at things and I do appreciate the subtle hints when one is available.

Maybe you will remember the puzzle if I say these two little words:

Click to reveal..
Rubik's cube


If it hadn't been for being able to follow the walkthrough to the letter, the game would have been utterly ruined for me with that puzzle. I remember enjoying the game otherwise, but for the life of me why anyone would throw a puzzle into the game that was so disproportionately difficult from the rest of the game is beyond my comprehension.

My hint was based on being in the apartment.

Sorry, I played the game 8 years ago, in 2010. That's where the 10 came from in my brain. The only 2 saves in that computer were from November 2010. I ended up actually playing the game in my own computer once it was fixed.

I read the review the other night because I wasn't sure about a couple of things happening in my game [black screens (normal to game) and lagging conversations (fixed by increasing the subtitles speed)] and saw those two words but I do not remember the puzzle at all. When I get to it I probably will. I think I remember reading about it somewhere else also, maybe a thread here at GameBoomers.

Okay, got stumped last night and am still stumped tonight. I'm in Francois' mansion after he was murdered and I'm trying to open the safe. I already have the Mayan map from the pyramid and I've stared at both sides of it as well as at the poster and the journal and had all 3 in close up at the same time. (Can't see them all but thought the music might mean something.) What I did not get to look at is whatever was hiding the safe, as I "uncovered" it before looking over there, so I don't know if there was something there I should have seen.

Is there any way to "hint" me?

Thanks.

Thanks Jenny100! I was pretty sure where the hint was but the safe is a little misleading, which is confirmed in hint 3 of 11 (I already knew the info in the first 2 hints), which made me go back and take another look at what I thought was right. Bingo! I figured it out! Just needed that confirmation!

That's great to hear. UHS can be quite good and I sometimes forget it as a resource.

I usually forget it too Marian, but I also hesitate to use it sometimes because, just like with a walkthrough, it is too easy to just keep looking. Fortunately, I am remembering quite a bit about this game though, so I am not totally lost.

Yes, I know what you mean. It takes a lot of discipline not to keep looking. I have fallen into that trap many times.

I don't want to brag or anything Marian, but I just finished the colored ball puzzle in under an hour, without help. joy

Oh, you should definitely brag! I hated that puzzle and did not have the patience for it.

Your doing that is really very impressive. praise

I am not sure that I have ever heard anyone say they solved that one on their own.

Well, my memory is terrible, but since this puzzle left no impression on me, I'm thinking I solved it on my own the first time I played also, but I can't say that for certain. It took me almost as long to figure out how it worked as it did to actually solve it. I was holding my breath that I positioned the balls right before I made my last move.
