After another half hour or so I found Eddie - then of course I forgot how I found him and it took me half an hour to find my way back - geeez, I can't win for losing laugh

I somehow managed to wind up in the Mystech tunnels lol

Well I'm playing in bunny rabbit easy mode laugh Grumpos and I just wiped out that stone monster in the lower Mystech tunnels and had the person controlling things [cough] paid attention [cough]and moved her characters [cough] instead of letting them stand there and get the [blip] bashed out of them [cough, cough] we would have sustained no damage. But we healed up nicely except for that last smack of the staff Boots got from Grumpos wink and now I seem to be on a mission to take pictures of the Anachronox icons, plus I still need to find one more Brebulan and I have yet to find one Red Bippy and probably lots of other stuff laugh

syd,

Since you're checking off the side-quests, try and finish all the jobs that other detective guy gives Boots. Once all those are completed you get a Boots World Skill upgrade that comes in super handy later. I neglected to do that and by the time I realized what had happened it was too late to go back and finish the side quests. You don't need the upgrade to finish the game but you'll have to compensate in other ways later that take just as much or more time.

Syd, I didn't do many of the side quests, especially early in the game. I did the Brebulan one because it was easy, but not the resistance, red bippys or icons. The reward you get is usually pretty pitiful--maybe a healgrease that you don't need. Later in Hephaestus, you can get an excellent weapon for doing an easy quest.

What other detective guy? Me thinks I've missed talking to someone somewhere (no surprise there)

Pokey I know I probably shouldn't do all the side quests but I'm kind of anal about it. I hate to leave something undone - must be a character flaw laugh Plus, I'm so new to this genre that I think it's fun to do everything that needs to be done. Maybe after 40 or 50 RPG's I'll feel differently.

I talked to the detective once at Sender Station, the station orbiting Anachronox and I think maybe even once on Anachronox. I forgot his name. If you got to Planet Anachronox forum and do a search on Boots World Skill, you should get some info. He has Boots go on some side quests, 4 I think. When Boots finishes all of them he gets a new set of lockpicks and better lockpicking skills that let him access parts of the game you otherwise couldn't. One of those places has Boots' ulimate weapon.

Pokey is right. The rewards for the side-quests are really varied, from pathetic to too good to believe.

I found one detective - he is in the Anachronox Tour area - where the person fell through the platforms is lying - that must be the guy you're talking about. I'm just on my way back to him with his first request. We'll see if he sends me out again. I now have my PAL battery so I'm off to my office to see if I can get him working.

Yea, I got all of $75 for doing one quest - but it wasn't too tough so I figure it was easy money. I'm still missing one picture anachronox icon somewhere and I found two that look like can be taken - one on top of the directional signs and one on top of the Anachronox Tour Sign - but I can't get up to that one. I hope I didn't need the elevator I accidentially blew up to get there oops

syd,

That's the guy. Keep track of him. I think he moves around a bit on you.

Whoo-hoo. $75!! Actually the big bucks come later during the many battles. There are places where you can fight relatively easy battles over and over to level up and sock away the dough and lots of healgrease. Much more efficient than the side quests though not as fun.

syd, sure you should do all the side quest if thats what you want to do. i always try to do all possible side quests. in anachronox some of the best weapons you can only get by doing the side quests.

the mystech tunnels is a good place to level up once you have access to them.

It's been a while since I played this, so probably Zanthia or Scout could tell you with more detail, but there is actually one character that will keep sending you on mindless quests and give you nothing in return. Sound familiar anyone? laugh

I give up. I can't for the life of me remember anyone stiffing me on a quest. Of course I might have just blocked it out of my mind.
