Nancy Drew Ghost of Thornton Hall Star Plate

Nancy Drew Ghost of Thornton Hall Star Plate - 03/23/14 08:11 PM

When I put my Star Plate on the coffin the sketch doesn't automatically appear beside it. I'm following the walkthrough from gameboomers, I even tried all the other coffins in case there's a glitch, and I did check off everything I can on the checklist in case I hadn't done something first, but it's all done in order of the walkthrough. I'm totally stuck at this point. I've tried exiting the crypt and coming back in. Have there been any bugs in the ipad version? I'm stumped. I'd really appreciate any help. Thank you in advance.

Are you using the star plate on the second coffin in the top row?

Yes
-------
second coffin from the left in the top row. I put the plate there but the sketch doesn't show up automatically. I try dragging it there, nothing.
I tried every coffin.

You did mention having the star sketch.

Just to verify - Did you see-read the star clue on the wall after doing the stacking puzzle at the ruins?

If I remember correctly there are 3 groups of coffins. Please be sure that you are at the correct set of coffins.
Also be sure to zoom in on the coffin.

Ok, I went back and re-read the clue. I don't know where the third group of coffins is, but I'm at the group that also has the bird puzzle and snake puzzle, which I did. And I did zoom in on the puzzle.

NaughtySalem,

I sent you a saved game. Use it if you want. It follows the sequence in the walkthrough.

I think NaughtySalem is playing the game on an iPad. I'm still thinking about what could be tried next for this problem. sherlock

Ah - One of my thoughts is that she might not be seeing the top tier of the coffins.

I am on the iPad. How many rows of coffins are there? I see three. How do I look higher?

When I look toward the stained glass it shows three rows on either side. Thank you for the saved game. I might have to use it or start over on my computer. I was really looking forward to playing this on the iPad.

I did find a gravestone that says Nancy Drew. Does that mean the game is over for me?

Trying to get the star plate from the wallpaper. I'm playing on an ipad. I can only get the log to move. When I tap the others, nothing happens. Is there anything I can do? Hopefully I'm just missing something.

welcome to GameBoomers, Carhurl.

As I recall, the star plate is located in the crypt; it's on the coffin in the bottom row, second from the right. You press the square button to take the star plate.

Let us know if you need more help.

I guess I described it wrong. It is the star pattern I need from the wall in the Ruins. There is a puzzle where you have to stack items to reach the wallpaper at the very top. I am only able to add the log to the stack. None of the other 3 items will move. I don't know if this is an iPad problem or not.

If I remember correctly this puzzle has a touchy cursor. Maybe it is the same with the Ipad version.

Well, I was doing it wrong. I finally figured out that I had to release one item with the down arrow before getting another one. Oops! Sorry
