Hi Mr. Bill. I should probably just look at the walkthrough but maybe you can try to guide me rather than I just see the answer. I made it to the ice breaker puzzle. I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to be doing. I know the Captain said I have to be quick and get to second gear right away after being in third gear. How do I even know if I'm in third gear? I mean, I can shift there but... Where do I start and what about the pull down lever?

Is it really just a speed thing or is it more about the right order? If it's speed, I'm probably in trouble.

I don't really want the whole answer but I don't really understand how the puzzle works.

Thanks!

Hello again,

This one is a stinker and there are as many theories as there are walkthrough writers.

Click to reveal..
I believe there is a rhythm involved, that each gear needs to be activated (let mouse button out), make sure needle does not get too high (remember to release the mouse button after shifting down to see where needle stops) You can go back to one or two to lower the needle read1ng if it is getting too high. When you think the needle is low enough to give you a chance to go from 2 to 3 and back to 2 - go for it and wait and see if the video starts with ice breakers working. By going up and down like this to control the needle position, you could maybe drag this out over a minute or less.


Cheers,

Bill

Thanks Mr. Bill. I'm not looking behind the spoiler just yet. I was tired last night when I was playing so I want to give it another go first before I see too much.

I'll let you know later.

I gave my strategy in the spoiler. I did not walk you through it in the spoiler. I believe that what the Captain says is being taken too literally.

Good luck!

Bill

Okay, good. I was afraid to look. Still haven't and still haven't got back to the game yet either. Good to know your thought about what the Captain is saying.

Yea, I don't think I'll be able to get it. I looked at your strategy but I don't know how to shift gears or if/when to pull that handle down or what. I'm going to take a look at the walkthrough to see if that helps.

Edit: Got it! I was not using the pull down handle thing correctly, nor controlling the gauge right either. Not too bad at all with your instructions. praise12

It intimidated me at first and that very first day I tried 20 to 40 times and the next day got it.

Click to reveal..
Try this: This sounds so complicated in words, I know, but learn the procedure and rhythm
1. Pull lever down in front
2. Shift to gear 1 (left click on the gear handle on the left, hold mouse button down and move mouse to the right and up (away from you) into slot 1. Let go of button and look at needle.
3. From here the move is into slot 2 (straight back from slot 1 into slot 2) let go of button and check needle. If going to high, go back to slot 1 and let go of button - check needle
4. When you are in Slot 2 and needle is fairly low try to get into slot 3, let go of button then left click on it again, hold button down and drag back to 2, let go of button before needle gets too high


Maybe watching a video.

Take care,

Bill

I'm certainly glad the walkthrough instructions work. I was scratching my head and worrying about whether my so called strategy would work or be understood.

Thank you,

Bill

Me also.I got it done with a mouse and keyboard after taking a break and seeing how others said it should be done on Steam.

I'm not asking for help right now but I just have to say this: smashpc hardwall

(I'm trying to make smoke signals by the bridge.)
