Has Wire Lookout shown up on your map as a location that you can visit?

Hi robert, I'm going to let MaG answer your question. From reading the walkthrough, I can't give you an answer as to how you "climb" Wire Lookout.

This is the structure with a bulb like top that is wired, right?
If so, coming from road - there are steps on the tower. Just click on it. It is not necessary - it is just a landmark. What you need here is to get the item from the steps left of the structure. luck

When you were here earlier - did you open the front door so that you can enter through that front door later (which is now)?
If not - go through the back door like you did earlier. Good luck.

All you are doing in the bunker is check the different places in there. As well as getting the 3 items that can be picked up.
The most important is getting Kim's new address from the drawing hidden by the mattress. Then you can leave the bunker through the main exit.

Follow the map above:
- exit the blue cabinet room.
- go to your left at the long hallway until you reach the other hallway that is perpendicular to where you are.
- then go right until the end of the hallway which is another room.
- exit that room using the other entryway. You will then see the entrance and be outside. luck

Hi robert, here is a little map of the bunker with a few points of interest.



If this doesn't help, let us know approximately where you are in the bunker and we can try to give more specific instructions.

Looking at the map as a reference point, can you then do the following:

Quote:
Go back to the other hallway by the blue cabinet (look for the location of the blue cabinet on the map in my post above). Enter the last room at right.

Go forward 2xs through the open green door at the end of hallway and then left to the exit.

Use the key on the lock. Exit.

Looking at the map, stand in the hallway outside of the entrance to where the blue cabinet is. Following the map, continue down that hallway in the direction of where the exit lies. It looks like you want to enter the last room on the right in this hallway.

Go back to the safe you opened. It is behind the 1951 coal mining poster.
It is on the wall left of you as soon as you entered through the front door.

Hi robert, if you try to put the firewood and the paper in the stove, after having opened the panel near the bottom of the stove, Carol will say, "It's already too warm in here!", and you won't be able to do that. Just continue on with the game.

Unless the interface has changed in the most recent games, which I haven't played, you should be able to find Carol's journal in your inventory. Look at the journal and click on an objective to reveal clues/hints.

See the location of the iron bar on this map.

The last 2 games have the hints system at top left of the screen. That I believe is what is mentioned in the postings.

If I remember correctly, there might be 2 hatches in that room. Check if there is another one.
Also check your inventory to see if there is an iron bar or rod in there.

Please check if you have a screwdriver in your inventory. Please keep me posted.

If so - try using that screwdriver on the blue cabinet and tell me what happened.

Robert,

This is the door that has the small bar close to the edge amd is at the end of the main hallway?

If so -
In inventory combine the steel brush from Wire Lookout with the solvent taken from the Dead City.
Use the steel brush with solvent on the rusty bar at top of door. Now the bar can be turned.

hi MaG, i have used the solvent with the steel brush, turned the bar, opened the door, picked up the wooden stick etc. but i still cannot exit the bunker. i suspect Carol's comment about the door being stuck is a trigger or prerequisite to exit. is that so? robert.

You still have some things to do here after picking up the wooden stick.
Do not exit the room yet.

Did you:
Go to the left of the steps (this is the steps after picking the wooden stick). Continue to the left.
Climb the metal ladder at right. See an open green door. Look inside and see a silver metal box.
Use the wooden stick to bring it closer.
Then work on the box.

If I remember correctly, Carol says that only before opening that door to the inner bunker.
If you already opened it before - it should not be "stuck" again.
Be sure also that you have examined completely the content of that silver metal box.
One other thought - is it possible you went to a previous saved game before that door puzzle and have not opened it yet.
If so maybe do a replay and it might get you going.
Keep us posted.

I am needing to light the fire in the stove but don't have either firewood or paper. How do I get them? I seem to remember having them in my inventory but they are gone. I may have already lit the fire but now I don't remember if I had the paper with the hidden writing. Can you nudge me in the right direction? The wt doesn't really help much at times.

It sounds like it. smile

According to the walkthrough:

Quote:
Use the lighter from Harri's desk to light the paper. Use the blank paper taken from the safe on the fire.

Read-click on the text exposed by the heat. It shows the longitude and latitude of Nimis (new location).

Make a fire in the wood stove by: Place firewood and paper in the wood stove in the kitchen. Use the lighter from Harri's desk to light the paper.
Then when you have fire - Use the blank paper taken from the safe on the fire.

That's the problem, I had firewood and paper earlier, made the fire in the stove and now there's no fire to put the paper and the lighter in to get the code. Should I go back to the original point in the game where I had paper and wood?

Adorable,

Somewhere down the line, you've probably loaded a saved game and missed to do something you've previously done (I do that all the time!). Once the fireplace has been lit, the fire doesn't go out until you've had proper use for it. If you can find a save where you have the firewood and paper in inventory, you'll probably get back on track again.
