Has Carol made the comment about Broxtowe yet? After she does, exit the archives and have a new conversation with the clerk; then the library appears on the map.

Or are you having trouble finding file 0460?

Have you done the following:

Quote:
Check bin 460 on right shelf. Learn that Alfons Larson, MD's license was revoked on May 21, 1935. A copy of the decision was sent to the Broxtowe Hospital. Click on the paper to get Carol mention the hospital.

Hi robert, this is from the walkthrough:

Quote:
Turn left and forward to Carol's allotment.

Turn right at end of path. Turn right before the blue shed.

Look close at the hanging basket on the fence


Start at Carol's allotment, follow these directions, and see if you can find the hanging basket. smile

Hi robert, if I'm reading the walkthrough correctly, you "use" the decoded message as a clue to figure out a puzzle; you don't need to literally use it on another item. wave

If you have entered the numbers correctly and the box doesn't open, perhaps you missed a needed clue in order to trigger the box opening.

Have you done all of the following at the Julian Milius Exhibition?

Quote:
Newspaper: Turn right and read the newspaper. Learn about what happened to the building and get the address of Broxtowe.

- Calendar: Turn right. Check the calendar and see that June 5, 1935 was the first day he spent at the institution.

- Abstract Shapes: See colored abstract shapes in a painting of Julian.

- Biography: Turn right twice and read the biography of Julian Milius, the insane painter. He was a close friend of Alfons Larson, wife killer and arsonist. Alfons was institutionalized the day after Milius, his best friend.


Let us know. smile

hi Marian. i am hopelessly lost in Mag's W/T, so i'd like to replay afresh with all past saved games deleted. is this possible? a new game doesn't seem to get rid of old games. i downloaded Amber's Blood from Adventure Shop. can i restart with a clean slate? robert.

Hi robert, maybe someone else will know where your saved games are located; then, you would be able to delete them. You could probably also start over and simply save over your currently saved games while entering a new name for them.

Hi robert, you use the letter as a reference in order to help you decode the note.

From the walkthrough, when you decode the note, it will look like the following:

FOUR RI_HT

TWO LEFT

FOUR RI_HT

The above would appear to be the combination of a lock.

You don't actually have to use the letter; you just look at it in order to figure out the code, I believe. smile

I don't think you have to perform an action in order to look at the letter, but if you do, maybe MaG can help you out here - looking at the walkthrough, I can't see that there is anything else to do here.

Try these directions from the walkthrough:

Exit the shed, then left, forward, left, forward, right, forward, left, forward to end and then right.

Can you not back out of the white metal cabinet? Check the arrows around that cabinet.

hi Mag, when i back out taking the pistol and opening the envelope, i get the magnifying glass which takes me inside the cabinet again and so i am in a loop never getting to the menu hence never to Carol's home. BTW, i don't see any arrows. robert.

Hi robert, here is from the walkthrough:

Quote:
Turn left and see a white metal cabinet. Use the key taken from under the speaker on the lock.

Take and open the metal box. Take the pistol.

Take the manila envelope. Use the carpet knife to open the envelope. See the letter-number code for clock positions. Ah! Let's get out of here.

Carol's home: Automatically be in Carol's home. Carol leaves the clock on the study table.



Check and make sure that you have done everything mentioned here in the walkthrough. It sounds like if you do, the game takes you to Carol's home.

Robert, when you say that you can't go back to the menu, I take it that you mean the map.

If you can't get out of the cabinet, I think you're missing the arrow at the very bottom of the screen.

Hi robert, you have almost finished the game! Try this sequence and see if it works:

Quote:
Go to the very end of the interior of the hospital. Turn around, and David Larson will turn up in front of you.

Talk to David Larson.

When he starts telling Carol to get down on her knees, look up at the brick wall.

Take the gun from inventory and shoot at the wall.

Click on the forward arrow to escape from the vicinity.
