Hey there MrBill !

I been reading through this thread for some help with the ice breaker puzzle. I haven't seen anything regarding my issue which may or may not be a glitch on my installation, so, I would like to pose it here.

I am standing in front of the control panel. I get 3 hot-spots 1) the Wheel 2) the gear shift lever and 3) the Start Button. I can easily engage the shaft to the engine by turning the wheel all the way counterclockwise until it stops and I hear it click. But that's ALL I can do - I click the start button but nothing happens - no noise, no click, no engine start ! I don't even get a hot-spot on the center level that I know I need to pull.

I been fiddling with this for an hour or so - I even re-started the game a few times and started from Capt. Obo in the bridge. hardwall

So, did I miss something? or is this a glitch? duh

Will this help: Its kinda tricky. You have to use the wheel in the top right first to connect the engine. Then start the engine with the button on the lower right. Use the lever to lower the ice breaker. Now you have to switch to third gear, then as fast as you can to second gear, befor the engine dies. Your goal is to switch gears and keep the arrow in the green area.

took me awhile to get frm 3 to 2 gear without killing the engine

video how to

Thanks, Winfrey.

And if all else fails, I believe there is a saved game for this that you can download here.

Hi Winfrey, I did see that clip but my issue is that I when I come up to control panel, the first thing I do is turn the wheel to engage the shaft to the engine and then I hit the red button on the lower right to start the engine but - the engine never starts ! I do not hear a click or hear a noise of any kind. Absolutely nothing happens after I move the shaft to engage the engine.

There is no hotspot for the center lever either !

I am thinking this is a glitch in the game on my system. Just wondering if it happened to anyone else.
I ran into a few spots that didn't respond to the mouse/keyboard controls, but was able to recover by escaping out of the scene or restating the game.

I will have to use the saved game in the link Marian sent.

Thank you both and all.

Oh Wait !!! Got it !!!

I read a couple more help hints and one site mentioned to "Lift the glass on the red button to push it and start the engine" !! slapforehead

I went back and had to look very hard on my screen but did see just a glint of a cover over the button. The hot spot only showed one white dot until I moved the cover -- ( Booo!! )

Getting the gears down on the ice was actually much easier than I read about. So I am on my way. crazy

Thank you all for the push !! thumbsup

Hey there Shureshot,

I see that you did not look at my walkthrough. I warn the player about all that and show pictures to prove it.

Take a look.

Hello Mr Bill !!

I am sorry, I should have looked at your walkthrough. Yes that detail is explained and would have saved me some frustration. Well now I know who to go to !!!

Thank you for that link ! praise


I made it to Baranour Park and did a few things like power up the park and replace Oscar's heart etc. I ended there for the day. I have just returned to the game and now I do not have any hot-spot showing - not even the audio one when I approach a character - nothing !! I can move Kate around but No hot-spot appears for any function - I can't even get back on the ship.

I tried restarting game, and PC. I even deleted the save game from my LocaLow Microids folder and replaced it with a save I had. Same thing.

I uninstalled the game and re-installed it - this time I UNchecked the Sync with Cloud feature in the GOG app. Same thing !!

I am at total loss now - Is this the place for this ? should I got to GOG tech support?

I would post your problem over in Glitches - Mr. Bill will see it over there too, and maybe someone else can offer some help/advice as well.

Hey Sureshot.

The exact same thing happened to me yesterday while playing that area for my walkthrough so I sent an email to Microids or whoever is doing the game support. I also today found out that the older saves don't load in this point and click version. I'm still with the steam version. and you are doing the GOG version. Today I made a save for where you and I are at present. I don't know if it will load for you or not. Have you found where your saves are located?

Cheers,

Bill

Hi sureshot,

This is what I told Support:

Click to reveal..
Is there a particular order to do the following in Baranour. I have radiation goggles, Get telescopic hook, look at automoton, enter between double doors, enter workshop, take cog from box, ,look at Voralberg toolbox, leave through other door to boardwalk with tracks, go to ferris wheel, climb ladder, put cog in place and pull down knob, remove wreck from tracks, go to tractor, look at rear of tractor that could pull Krystal, remove automoton, take small key, go back to workshop, get two Voralberg wrenches, exchane hearts; was about to use cart to find olympian Katrina when it lost all hotspots.

I ask because I am writing a very detailed walkthrough for Syberia 3 emphasizing it with screenshots. I have finished all of it up to Baranour. In Baranour I have already done something in a wrong order maybe ( order of what has been done in sentence above). I have lost all hotspots except in the inventory, the ferris wheel cog is still in the inventory and so is Voralberg wrench, heart in inventory stiill says souvenier of Oscar. To me, replacing the heart seemed to be out of my control.

Another person has had the same thing happen to him. He was further along than I was.


Here is the Syberia 3 Support Website

Support for Syberia 3

Take care

Bill

IMPORTANT!
....................sureshot..

there is another area where you can have a glitch and get stuck. This one happened to me.. it might behoove you to read the walk through for this part cause if you do things out of order Oscar will not be able to get off the fire truck!
This is where you take control of Oscar:

Go up the steps to the left and speak with Oscar. He’ll volunteer to go outside and open the grates so that the bats can escape.

You’ll now take control of Oscar. Walk towards the bottom of the screen and up the steps. Exit out the doors at the end of the corridor.

Now look at the walkthrough.. or make a copy of you last save before trying this next part

Hi Mr Bill

- Yep I do know where my saves are. I even tried moving a save out of the Microids folder but the GOG version kept downloading the same save from the cloud !! I unchecked that feature and deleted the save again. and copied back my original save --- same result. So what I wound up doing is delete the save in Locallow\microids\siberia folder and copying in the save I downloaded from the support site and played the game from there. I dare not quit the game until I past that spot and made it to the subway tunnel and got Oscar working.

That's where I am now. I just resumed the game from my second visit to the subway tunnel and it seems to be working --- for NOW bravo

And I say "for Now" because Winfrey has alerted me that there could be another spot I could get stuck - so I will follow Winfrey's lead on this. Thank you Winfrey !!! thumbsup

So - I will thank you both for your help and support and continue on from here.

Ya think after 13 years and 2 great games, Syberia 1 & 2, and all the hardware advances since, that we would experience going backwards - and have to fight a keyboard with the WASD to boot? Even using a programmable mouse isn't too much more help. duh

But onward we go!!


Thank you Mr Bill and Winfrey again. wave

It's because they designed Syberia 3 with consoles in mind, and used a cross-platform game engine so all versions would release at the same time.

The older Syberia 1 and 2 games were designed for PC first, and the console ports were released the following year.
