uh oh; I got that it's left mouse zoom, right mouse to fire, or whatever, but how do you aim? The w/t says analog stick. I'm on a computer, not an x-box. What do I use to aim? I'm just moving the mouse but it's not very accurate. I hope they have an infinite supply of shells for this cannon because I'm going to need them. slapforehead nu2gaming

help I can not, for the life of me, hit any of those sorcerers. I've read the other thread (JohnBoy and Darlene's) and don't see that any of you have had any trouble with this. Any suggestions? cry nu2gaming

I'm baaaack! Finally made it to land. I spent hours trying to kill Dagon with shotgun and tommy gun. Finally gave up and went to the cannon. I had to kill him again before I reached the first save point. Am now trying to get to that little island at the end of the ledge. Once, I got there and saw cutscene then somehow fell off. The next time I fell into the water while still trying to navigate the ledge. I'm going back in. Wish me luck. nu2gaming

Hi there,

Just got back from a mini-holiday.

Walking along the ledges is tricky. You'll learn where to jump after a few tries.

Hi hagatha; I missed you. Well It took a few tries but I finally made it to the cave. Missed a turn or something somewhere because suddenly I was outside the cave staring at some vicious spikes on one side and a drop to water on the other so I need to reload. Luckily, I ran back and saved after the lower ledge so only need to repeat the higher one. I do enjoy this game, if I can at least make a little progress each day, the cannon and sorcerers had me ready to burn the discs. My son to the rescue. I'd never have made it. Was gratifying to get Dagon. evil nu2gaming

Wow. Getting past these waves while on the ledge is tricky. I've learned not to stand. But even crouched, when I try to check to see where the ledge is, I'm in the water. mad nu2gaming

Finally got past the waves several times. happydance I'm in the room with the green stone, console and wall plaque, where you use Ruth's brooch. Every time I push the brooch Jack's vision goes all whonky and I can't get him to move. Of course I can't see which way to go anyway. I've tried waiting out his vision problem but by then the timer has lapsed. I've tried checking out the room for an exit before I push the brooch but don't see anything except what looks like a crawl space behind the green stone. How do I get out of here? nu2gaming

Before you push the brooch for real, push it and explore and find where you need to go. Kill all the things that get in your way and then come back and push the brooch again. The first thing you need to do is make a jump to a very narrow ledge and then follow the maze using the red lights.

Thanks Pokey; I'll try again. I still don't know why Jack goes all whonky and won't move. I haven't seen anything to kill, and believe me I'm looking. nu2gaming

Jack's insanity comes and goes because..well, because he is insane. There isn't always a trigger. Jack is very afraid of heights, so he may go wonky if he's standing on a ledge. If you have to make a jump it's best to just do it, looking up slightly, rather than have Jack stand around, because he WILL go on a wobble. If he gets too bad, stare at the ground or something that isn't threatening and wait for his heartbeat to slow down again.

I did find that exiting the game and starting again seems to reset Jack's sanity levels, whereas reloading a save from in-game seems to result in him getting progressively worse.

By the way, congratulations on getting past Dagon. Now that was a satisfying victory, wasn't it?

I'm having a really hard time in this room with the green stone. I think I found a ledge (behind the green stone; when I jump I get higher than the stone), but once up there I can't get Jack to move. The only way I see is to the right. I can get Jack to move to the left, but he just winds up back in front of the console. Please tell me if I am totally wrong about the ledge. help nu2gaming

The ledge is near the bridge. You have to jump across a chasm to land on a very narrow ledge and then you head to the left to reach the tunnels. Did you use the Book of Dagon on the control panel?

The Call of Cthulhu forum is supposed to resume today. Maybe the search function will finally work.

Yeah Pokey I did use the book of Dagon. Please tell me something. A couple of times I've seen a glowing red stone. I've tried to pick it up but it turns back to a plain stone when the timer stops. Is this something I am suppose to grab, (while it is still red)? nu2gaming

You don't pick up any red stones. There are red stones that mark the trail as long as the timer hasn't expired, and the red jewel in your inventory, which you place on the pedestal before the timer expires.

Thank both of you very much. I think I'll take a break. My body should look like a prune, I've fought those waves so many times. I'm not making that jump to the ledge. (I'm not a very good jumper). Don't see a ledge by the broken bridge on the right so will keep trying the one on the left. Bye for now. wave nu2gaming
