How do you win at that game? I have tried and tried to beat Mason's score and I just can't.

I thought Aggregation was fun, but it took me a while to get the hang of it. I will send you a saved game in junior mode after beating Mason's high score, just in case you decide that you would like to use it. wave

Thanks. Yes I do seem to be on a marathon. This is the last one until the new one comes out. I've already played the Ghost of Thornton Hall. I'm just catching up on the games that I wasn't able to play before. lol.

Do you know of any other series like the ND series?

Yes, I pick it up but nothing pours. Is the water already in it? Or do I have to put water in it?
I can't pour anything from that pitcher into the vials that I'm supposed to use.

Yes, the water should already be in the H20 container. Another member had a similar problem, and MaG said: If you click it on the flask (to measure) it is blue colored - but it is poured. Continue and see.

If you still have trouble, perhaps start this part over and double check that all steps up to the point with the water have been done correctly. luck

Yes, after I blew up a couple of times. lol.

But now I can't find Ryan. I need to talk to her and she's not in her work space.
I don't really know what else to do at this point.
The task list says I need to investigate Ryan, explore the lab (which I have done numerous times)
and make an etching. I have the cylinder thing but I don't know what to do now. I don't have an image.

I mixed the etching solution and I got the wafer. But I cannot click on the computer. I replaced the conduits. I don't know what else to do.

Have you listened to Niko's audio diary and learned the area of the last location where Ryan tried to threaten him, and then searched that area? wave

You aren't supposed to be able to find Ryan yet, I don't think. Have you searched the lounge (after listening to the clue in Niko's audio diary)? Have you tried calling Deirdre?

Am I supposed to call Deirdre? She's annoying. lol

I gave Ryan the candy bar and that's the last time I saw her. She said she would fix the player. But now she's gone.

Yes, I think Deirdre was born annoying. grin

It sounds like the next thing you need to do is to make a new circuit board for the small Tesla coil. The next steps, according to the walkthrough, are as follows:

Click to reveal..


Review how to make a photographic etching: Go down to the lab.

Enter the photolithography lab.

Take the cat leg left of the microscope under the cabinet.

Turn right and read the book on top of the monitor again.

The items needed are: Etching solution, image and blank wafers.


Will this help get you going again?

I don't have the image. I have everything else. Where do I get the image?

I tried clicking on the computer next to the printer but I can't.

If you have the etching solution and a silicon wafer, then according to the walkthrough you need to make a circuit design. Look closely at the monitor at the right under the cabinet of the silicon wafers and do the puzzle where you connect all the circuits. When that is done, you can take the circuit design from the printer.

Then you can use the photolithography etching machine.

Click to reveal..
Pour the formula in brown bottle on the tank on the left.

Place the printed circuit design on the image tray below the monitor.

Place the silicon wafer on the tray for blank wafers.

Press the red start button. The process will take 12 hours, so you leave and will come back later to this.

Here's a checklist that MaG posted on another thread that might help:

- You should know how to make a circuit by reading the book.
- You should have examined the small Tesla coil left of the photo lab door. Nancy says - Something must be broken.
- Talk to Ryan about the small Tesla coil. Ryan tells you you need to make a circuit board because the other one is broken.

Also check your To Do list.

That should then allow you to click on the monitor. Be sure also that you're clicking on the correct monitor, as Marian says.

I have done everything except talk to Ryan about the small coil. I can't talk to her because I can't find her. She's not in her work area.

Check your task list and see if there's anything else that you can be getting on with in the meantime until Ryan returns. You might need to catch up with things elsewhere in the game, and once those are done you'll be able to continue with the circuit board. luck

I've about run out of ideas/things for you to try. Maybe someone will have a saved game to help you get past your stuck point. I will post more if I can think of anything else that might be useful. It's been quite a while since I played this game and I remember that I used the walkthrough quite a lot to help me through it. wave

Click on everything in Ryan's workshop. Then exit, walk around and then return.

I sent you 2 saved games: formula done and etching started. One of them will work for you. luck

Thanks. I don't know what I missed. I went through the walk through and I didn't see anything that I had not done. Actually, I've done things that aren't in the walk through at this point.
It's a mystery.

How far are you with it? Did you do this yet:

Look close at Mason's monitor. Open component design 5.5.
See the 4 layers squares at left and Ryan's design at right.
Ryan's design shows the 4 sides. The puzzle on the left is by layers from top to bottom.
Start on bottom layer and copy the arrangement of the cubes.
Take note that this is a 4x3 grid. This gives a clue on which side to place the cubes on.
Click on a square on the left to place a cube. To erase, click on the bright green cube again.
When done, click on print design. I think that's right.

After that, you do this:

Go down to the lab. Go to the 3D printer left of the stairs.
Look at the monitor on the left and see your creation done on Mason's computer. Click on Print button.
This will take a long time to process. Come back later.

Hmmm. Have you taken a very close look at the coil? Did you try opening the drawer above the missing emergency shut-off button on the Tesla coil, and then clicking on the empty slot? When Nancy sees that, she should be able to ask Ryan about it.

Yes, I did. There's probably some little thing I didn't do. I found out that I couldn't talk to Ryan before because I had to wait on a call from Deirdre. So maybe I'm waiting on a call or something.

Yes, it is most likely just some little thing. You have probably already done this, but I would go over the walkthrough step by step just in case you spot something you missed.

I thought this was a pretty difficult game. wave

How do you place the magnets on the pigeon?
I can't place them anywhere. There is no option to do so.
