Beyond Atlantis - 06/06/02 04:38 PM

Help. I'm at the close end and can't go anywhere. Placed the stones and the crystal. I'm on the flower and I clicked on the correct curtains-1,3,2,1,3,2. Nothing is happening. I keep doing it and nothing. I'm about to pull my hair out.
I'm only supposed to click on three of the six curtains, right? I did it twice like it saids.
Can't figure it out.
Can anyone help? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

Hi there, Samantha.. wave It depends on what order you placed stones you collected in the planetarium.

Try 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3 and then try 3, 2, 1, 3, 2, 1 There are only so many random patterns. laugh

As Soren Anderson says in his walkthrough: "You can click on the swirling stars above for a reset, in which case Ten is drawn back up through the vortex to the planetarium so that he can jump in again and you can try a different sequence of curtains."

Best wishes, Witchen =O) smile

Samantha - you must click on all SIX curtains. First the 'simplified' images, then the 'complicated' images. Do them in the order you visited the regions.

Tally Ho..HI! smile It's been a long time since I've played Beyond Atlantis, but will you explain to me why it appears in comparing the walkthroughs that you click on three curtains twice, as opposed to six curtains once? There's a misunderstanding or misdirection there somehow and maybe we can straighten it out once and for all. I understand the stone placement directs the proper order. THANKS! Love, Witchen =O) smile

I will have to fire up the game and experiment. I KNOW my method works, because I have done it several times, and recently re-played the entire game for purposes of a revision.

I will play this section again, following the other three walkthroughs instructions (Bert Jamin, Soren Andersen, Sunshine) to see if their methods work also. They are calling for clicking on the final (complex) set of three stones, twice in sucession.

If their method works as well as mine, well and good. The only reason an player will have trouble with this section is if they have placed the stones in their own sequence, in which case, they must choose the curtains in the sequence they themselves used for the stones, not mine or the other authors'. They might of course also be having trouble identifying the correct curtains - they are somewhat folded and distorted by the 3D effect while you are turning, making them hard to see. Can't do anything about that.

Not to be argumentative but I only clicked on three curtains and did it twice. Worked for me. happydance

There can only be six possible sequences. One of them will be right for anyone if you don't mind experimenting.
