I'm stuck trying to get the cannon ball out of the cage on the ship. I combined the cork screw with the rope but can't use it anywhere. Thanks

Hi, Mag. Will you be doing a walkthrough for this game? I'm not able to figure things out like my 10 year old grandson can do. LOL

Hi, fellow boomers. I have opened the box (in the ship's cabin) using my hairpin. Now I'm faced with the "Lock puzzle". Has anybody done that and already beaten that puzzle? If SO,I would appreciate knowing how that's done.
Also, I know that all of our fellow boomers wish MAG a speedy recovery.

You need to push the hairpin all the way to the right. You have to weave your way through. The hairpin dosen't bend.

You read the piece of paper, right?

- The right symbol you get from Mary. Of course, only one symbol makes any sense even if you don't know the answer.

- The middle symbol comes from the mirror. The three missing words are probably "on the mirror."

- I got the left symbol just by scrolling through the options after setting the other two symbols correctly.

I'm currently stuck in Chapter 3 trying (I think) to clean a window.

This one is a little obscure. The solution involves a catapult.

I'm new here either and need same help. Don't know/understand the table puzzle. And also having trouble with another puzzle:
Click to reveal..
there is a time you have to paint a canvas for the arch-mage. Do I really need to paint it, exactly? Or there is another way? Because I’m a terrible painter, and every time I show the canvas that I paint with the grapes and bottle of wine to him, he tells me that it’s no good.
Help, please!.

OK I solved the table puzzle with the help of my girlfriend who has seen similar puzzles before. Let's see if I can solve the puzzle of how to post hints. :)
Click to reveal..
What I wasn't getting is that the symbols around the table in some cases match the points of the star. Those are the ones you have to 'turn on' and from there it's mostly trial and error. Let me know if you need more help.


I can't help with your second part because I'm still looking for materials :)

If you haven't figured out how to polish the ice Petra may have something that would help.

I'm actually a little farther along than that. I'm an intern on the submarine, and I can't figure out what to do next. I can't pull the lever, I can't clean the window, and I can't get Critter on board.

There's something Nate refuses to do, so you have to use Critter instead.

From inside the engine room your next step is to
Click to reveal..
clean the porthole
.

More explicit solution:
Click to reveal..
Use Cleaning Solvent and Newspaper - you get the newspaper from the evil leader's room and if you've gotten this far you should already have the solvent. I forget where I picked it up but I used the label off the can to get the brandy.

You have to create an opening. This is actually the puzzle the hint I gave before applies to.

I'm still confused about where I'm stuck. I have a canister of water, and it and the newspaper don't do anything useful. I don't see any cleaning supplies anywhere.

I should point out I'm playing on Normal so that might be the difference, but here goes, re: engine room

Click to reveal..
I had a canister of cleaning fluid and a bottle of water. I put the canister in the hole in the ice where the critter was fishing in an earlier chapter (where the Mary was wrecked), and the label came off. I then stuck that label onto the bottle of water. Since it was a yellow label (I guess?) Laylah didn't notice when I swapped the bottle of water for the bottle of brandy in the hideout.

That left me with an unlabeled canister of cleaning fluid.

And I can't for the life of me remember where I originally picked that up, either. Sorry I can't be more help.

I figured it out. It turns out this is one of the places where Normal differs from Hard:

Click to reveal..
To clean the porthole on Hard, you have to re-swap the brandy bottle to get back the original bottle. Then when you examine the bottle, you notice it has fermented apple juice inside, and it's powerful enough to cut through the grime on the porthole (perhaps with the help of the newspaper, but I'd already used newspaper on the porthole several times).

Ya same here and it seems color needed to be blended carefully! That really hard which I'm stuck here also!

Alright painting is solved and it doesn't have to perfect or color blending (see below)

Addition to wine botle, grapes,leaves and cork, we need painting table and as well the background. I'm sure you know which color to use for table, check chair color and that the background

Has anyone gotten past the Chapter 4 painting puzzle yet? Is there a trick to it, or is the game just incredibly picky? Do you paint the table? Do you paint the background (and if so, which color)?

I've painted the picture ten times now, and my enthusiasm for painting it again is pretty close to zero.

I figured that out, about the "star" points, but no matter what, I can't seam to "light" my way in this puzzle. Is there an especific orther to do it? Do all the "points" need to be pressed first or do they need to be pressed in a certain order? All I know is that I have rotated the 3 circles at least 3000 times each!!! I'm stuck in this puzzle for 3 days now!!!

I need a nudge! I am trying to get out of jail and keep trying to use the hose with the corkscrew but it won't let me, due to the fact it would make to much noise with the chain going over the pipe. I can't separate the corkscrew (at least I don't know how to do it) all I have left is the compact and a couple of noise makers. rolleyes12

Thanks in advance! Great game

If you talking table from top floor then read below:

Click to reveal..
The puzzle has two parts, star and next one symbols. Look carefully at shapes and press buttons accordingly, for next one you'll see series of shapes, look carefully and at some point you should see all shapes that needed to be press (buttons at once). Of course, you need rotating table until!

It sounds like UruBoo is playing on Hard. For that case:
Click to reveal..
You just need to light the right star buttons. There isn't any order to it. For the rings, you need to create a route from the lighted starting points to the center. The easiest way to do this is to notice on the outer ring that there are two starting points that connect to each other but not to the middle ring. These two points can only go at the top of the puzzle. Once you've placed the outer ring, it's easy to go through all of the possibilities of the inner two rings until you get the solution.

Sorry, can't delete the post so I'm editing it. I'm moving forward again and my previous post was such a ramble and non-specific that I'm wiping it out.

Believe it or not, I'm still trying to get that cannonball out of the cage in order to use it on the cannon in chapter one on the ship. I have tried to combine everything in my inventory in every way possible to get that cannonball. Of course, I'm missing something here. Can someone lend me a hand here so that I can progress in this game. I would be much obliged.
Sandy

BTW, I hope you are feeling better by now, Mag

Richard,

Sorry - no saves since I was just playing all over.
Didn't have any problem with that table puzzle.
There are several steps to that puzzle - I didn't write anything down yet since I will replay sometime later.
- start with clicking on the buttons that look like the points of the star at center. That should light up and Nate will say something.
- click to turn the outer ring until some of those lines connect to the center. It will turn red and Nate will say something.
- do the middle ring.
- then do the inner ring.
Now the central cylinder comes up.

You need to look for 5 lines similar to the ones shown outside on the cylinder. Click the appropriate button.


Sandy - Check your e-mail.
No - still sickiepoo.

Thanks for the hint,FrkBrok. My problem is that I can't fire at anything because I don't have "ammunition" for the cannon. I assume this ammunition is the cannonball which is still stuck in the cage. And what is the "ork" you have mentioned? How do I get that cannonball?
Thanks,
Sandy

YAY! I finally did it. I put the cotton ball in the cannon, and fired again (as you stated). The "blast" pushed the cannonball out of the bars of the cage. Now I'm moving along, thanks to YOU.

Sandy you don't need the cannon ball in the cage. Did you use the cotton in the cannon.

Richard, with a little help from all of you, I put the cotton into the cannon, and from there I figured out the rest. Thanks so much.

I was not able to take the ship out of the bottle (in the ship's cabin) so I couldn't do another dialogue with "Mary", but thanks to MAG, i was able to put the symbols in the right order anyway to open the hatch and move on. Happy Gaming.

I'm going bonkers with the star point puzzle. I've looked at the walkthrough and all the postings on here, got the 5 correct triangles lit and therefore the inner-most circle also lights up....the very small circle which isn't actually part of the maze. I've twiddled around and around but cannot get the outer circle to light up let alone the others. I did fiddle with it as Critter so now have no idea what the original starting positions were. Does that make any difference? I just keep turning and turning to no avail. HELP! insane

No - the starting position doesn't really matters as long as you light up each ring.

The wt states only the numbers of clicks and position when you start from not touching the puzzle first.
Try clicking each ring until they light up and then work from there until all rings are red.

OK now I'm totally confused. I think I'm playing in hard mode. Finally got the maze to light up and the cylinder to rise. I then got the hand icon and picked up the "dull and tarnished" cylinder. There were no lit up symbols as in the WT. No odd shaped piece of metal. I tried putting the cylinder back onto the table and can't so I have no idea what to do now. help

To pick up the metal piece - you should click-look at the secret compartment on that table. See also if you have the metal piece in your inventory. Keep us posted.

Phew. Got the odd shaped piece of metal. Had to give the cylinder to Critter and he was able to put it back. But.....there were no symbols as in the WT. The squares were just about visible but no lines in them. Anyway I'm there now thanks to the pics in your WT. Without those I wouldn't have had any clue as to which buttons to press as the cylinder was not lit up.

Ok guy's, I finished the game on normal difficulty so I thought why not give it a go on hard.

Sailed through the first chapter with little problem and now find myself totally stuck in chapter two. Santa will not make his appointed rounds.

I've exhausted every conversation path available. Checked every hot spot I can find but without the hourglass and sock I'm at a dead end. I Would certainly appreciate some suggestions please

I thought there was a ball of yarn on the chair beside the fireplace - can you knit a sock or something the like?

-----------
I found a walkthrough here
that states:
Hang the STOCKING (from Petra at the Ice Sheet) on the right hook at the top of the fireplace.
Try to walk out the door to start the cut scene.
Click the STOCKING above the fireplace to retrieve it and the PACKAGE it was containing.
Open the PACKAGE to find the HOURGLASS and the WRAPPING PAPER.

Thanks MaG, it appears to be a totally different game in hard mode. Probably much to hard for my limited brain power.

Oh - I guess sometime I have to play the game in hard mode then. I will have to redownload the game after the holidays.
Hopefully that walkthrough is hard mode and that can get you through. holidays
