I know this is an older game - I think someone must have played it sometime or other so I hope to get help - I have the little User Guide that comes with the game and I have the walkthrough from here on GB...I am having trouble finding the "card reader (right of Automap)" to insert my card into the slot - I am having trouble understanding how to do things and how to find things even tho there is not too complicated a system of cursors - it should be simple, but it appears not to be for me........where or where is that card reader and what does the Automap look like (cannot find any yellow button).....
Love, Betty Lou

Hi Betty Lou,

I remember playing this a while back and gave up on the underwater part.

I will check with Lady High Mucky Muck if she remembers this part, OK.

Hi Betty

The card reader is in the front of the boat on the console - and I think it's to the left -

Let me load in the game and make sure I'm telling you correctly. Be back in a few

A Few laugh

Betty if you look straight ahead out the front window of the boat and click left you'll find both the card reader and the automap.

Hi Syd,
I am standing at the front of the boat in front of that large fake steering wheel.....to my left on the console/desk top is the autopilot (is this what we should call the automap?) clicking on this map just tells me that it is the autopilot and there is no yellow button, no slot or place to insert this card.... to my right is the telephone/internet unit.....
I have also looked up above the window here and there is a display of stuff but no automap or slot for the card....
just call me dense, but I can't find it so I can get this game started....Or am I supposed to leave this bridge and go out to that little boat outside on that deck - tried to do that and was told it 'was not a good idea'...
Love, Betty Lou

Betty do you see the thing that looks like a handle on the left? That's the card insert. Just take the card and place it sorta behind that handle but in the general area (it doesn't have to be exact).

"HEY YOU GUYS!" (just love GOONIES - the movie) and when we went to dinner at the Hometown Buffet Sun eve we even got to see CHUNK!!! looked just like him too!
Now, I am tickled to have touched some 'tickle' spots here, or are they 'sore spots' and should I leave them alone?
I am determined to play through this game, with the help of others who have tried and maybe succeeded, or tried and quit but may be able to give a clue or tip here and there......
SPOILER...Don't look here if you don't want blatant out and out directions as I do!
I am here:
Automap; ABC Button; Touched Red Square on Hawaii; Route red line from Hawaii to Palau; On arrival I pushed green START button; 1/2 way there was interrupted by video from J Braddy; The video is automatically installed in Edward's DATABASE (first D in his name); Then I went to "D" to view it again (shoose Braddy Video Tape) and then clicked on analysis and the coordinates were automatically installed and I got the Keywords (Bais+JohnBraddy+Legend+Palau+WorldwideHeritage).....I am supposed to PRESS the green check mark (mine is not green it is yellow, but so what) and (according to the walkthrough - and send this to either the encyclopedia or the data storage) BUT the only option I get is "send to album? Yes or No?"
I am <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> I am already in DataStorage so why do I have to send it there again and how do I do this now? I got the wrong question to answer...... Have tried (one of these attempts) to send the info to the encyclopedia but when I go there cannot find it...... Why do I want to send it to my album? What will I do with it there?
Any HELP would be appreciated.......and thanks a million.....
Love, Betty Lou

Love, Betty Lou laugh

Betty Lou, I am one of the unlucky laugh people who have never played this game, so I can only make a suggestion--why not save and then try sending to your album and see what happens...

Betty send it to Album then click on the W and type in the keywords. After Edward analyzes it then the option to send to data storage or encyclopedia comes up.

From the comments being made here, Jenny, you can probably count yourself as one of the LUCKY ones who have not played this game - I cannot decide if it is just too difficult to do or if it has too many pixle hunts, or what - and since I like it so far (just call me weird) I don't want to give up on it.....and yes I have saved just before getting that question and have tried to proceed but then cannot get things to work the way the walkthrough says they are supposed to....I don't suppose the writers of that walkthrough are still around to help out with these 'sticky' places any more?
Love, Betty Lou

Thanks Syd...I have done all the searching and storing of the word/s that were "successful" and am now back at the automap - I can only assume that those words that could not be found either data will come up later for them or not and then I guess I won't need it/them...
Thanks for all your help - I will be back - probably - unfortunately - as I am sure I will get stuck somewhere else here.....thanks again
Love, Betty Lou laugh

Question - how do I use the camera on that dive suit? There does not appear to be any "click" cursor to take a picture - my only active cursors are the straignt arrow or the "x" lower right of my screen both which take me back to the boat.....only slightly confused here.
Love, Betty Lou

Betty the only thing I remember doing is when whatever I was going to take a picture of comes into view I clicked on the left mouse button and it took the picture.

I cannot understand why it does not work for me - I am first off not sure what I need to take a picture of but have clicked myself silly all over the 'camera' screen while underwater and always return to the boat/ship just in time to hear Edward tell me it was a "Bogus Dive" - I take it that means I did not get even 1 shot.....don't know what I am doing wrong.
I have tried to contact Enteractive and asked if there was a Users Manual or Users Guide offered when the game was originally sold but have not heard back from them yet and assume they got my email as it has not bounced back at me yet...
It would have been helpful if there were a little manual that showed what the different cursors looked like and how to do something (like take a picture)....
Love, Betty Lou
