I'm having trouble opening the file cabinet in the ice cream shop. I checked the WT & I think i'm doing it right.

Be sure that you have finished the decoding the picture label at bottom left f the lock-pick book. That is the clue.

Then do the file cabinet puzzle.
The lock pick first inserted is the one at bottom right, going clockwise.
The lockpicks: yellow at bottom right; red at bottom left, blue at top left and green at top right.
The "every second one" code stated by the book is: R - Y - B - G - G - G - B - R - Y - R - B. These are the colors. luck

I don't remember the movement of the arrow - just follow the colors to be clicked-turned on and hopefully you'll get through the puzzle. :wave:

Thanks
Happy New Year

Just started this game. Am trying to stack the boxes to reach the window. Have followed the GB walkthrough pictures and it still doesn't work.

Any help? Thanks.

Be sure that each box is stable before adding another one. Move them so that they are at center.

The picture below is just one way of doing this puzzle. You can do your own.

I've been playing this game on and off for a while. Is it just me, or does this game drive you crazy? One person accomplishes something, switch to another (they've not achieved what the other has, i.e., inventory). I'm about ready to give up.

Awhile ago, I said I was through with ND games. Got this one on BF and thought I'd try again. Ugh, is all I can say.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Yes, there's a lot of switching about in this one. Not one of my favourites either, but worth persevering with. smile Hope it improves for you.
