The Mystery of the Mummy - 03/16/06 12:28 PM

I completed level two but was not taken to the Wine Cellar. I put the scepters on the statue in the hall. I did all the puzzles etc but it seem like I read on this web site that there is a chair that I need to move, I think it is in the room that looks like a cyclone hit it but am not sure. The walk through I have never said anything about moving a chair. Any help you can give me is appreciated.

Hi Garfield. After you placed the scepters on the hall statue did you click on the statue itself? I think that's how you get to the next area of play.
Good luck

Thanks Sue. I didn't think of that and the walk through didn't say to do that. It worked and now I'm in the Wine Cellar. I saved my game at that point until I can get back to it. I made a note of it on my walk through sheet. Thanks again.

I have lit the first torch and when I get a message to lite the second torch, I do that on time. I also found the oil flask and the bottle of oil and combined them. I got through the Treasure Room Antechamber just fine and the water puzzle. Now this is where I'm having my problem. I have placed the four statues on the chess board and then the cut screen comes on and then the room is destroyed. I keep dying at this point because I don't have time to cover the scorpions with the buckets and get out. It only gives me a few seconds. What have I missed? I appreciate any help you can probide.

GarfieldOdi, I added your new question to your old thread. It helps us with game continuity.
Are you able to grab both of the buckets into inventory before you die? You should be able to swing around and get them and place a bucket over the scorpion that will be at your feet. Then run towards the door, turn to your right and you should see another scorpion near the chess stand. Cover him with the other bucket. Once the scorpions are dealt with you need to grab Posey's bag and the plank.

Sue, I am not able to grab any buckets at all. I have about two seconds and he dies. I know I have covered all the steps in the water puzzle because the chess table comes up. Why don't I have enough time to grab the buckets etc? Thanks for your help. GarfieldOdi

Garfield the save that you are using for this..can you tell me exactly what your next step will be? Is it placing the statues? You should have time to get to the bucket that is on the left. Once that scorpion is covered, I think the timer stops.

Sue, I saved just after I completed the water puzzle. I don't have enough time to get to the buckets, only a couple of seconds and then he dies. Thanks for your help. GarfieldOdi

Garfield try walking to the chess board. Save your game just before you start placing the statues and see if that will give you any extra time.

Sue, I am unable to save the game once I click on the chess board. But this time I was able to pick up the buckets but I couldn't find the scorpion. Between this room and the rotating room, I don't know which is the most frustrating. I will keep trying but if you have any other suggestions, please let me know. Thanks for your help. GarfieldOdi

Garfield go to the chess board but do NOT click on it. Save your game right there.
One scorpion should be near your feet when you go for the buckets. Get that one first. Then turn to go for the door. The second scorpion will be behind the destroyed chess board I believe.

Sue, I will try that and thank you for all your help. I almost had it once but forgot the plank and had to go back. I think I can do it now but it's frustrating and challenging. GarfieldOdi

Garfield - here's the wording from the (other) walkthrough:

Quote:
Turn toward the buckets. Pick up the Large Bucket. (It's the one on the left.)
Look down at your feet. Use the bucket on the Scorpion to trap it. The timer momentarily stops.
Before you do anything else pick up the other bucket.
Turn right and go once toward the door.
Look down and take Parkey's Bag.
Before you move, get the small bucket out of inventory.
Step behind the right side of the checkerboard
Use the bucket to trap the other scorpion.
Before you move, look down and pick up the wooden board.
Turn toward the door and exit the room.

Whew!! That wasn't so bad now, was it?

Hi Lakota - Welcome to GameBoomers!!

Combine the stick and the rag, then pour Gin on the rag. It should light now.

Hi guys wave

After spending 2 days trying to solve the nonogram puzzle, I finally give up...

Does anybody have a saved picture of the accursed thing? I'm using my last rays of sanity to ask for help...

Thanks a lot

Raven it's a picture of Sherlock and his pipe, at least mine was. After I finished the puzzle I was told the shortcut. Place a couple of tiles and then go to the upper right hand corner and click. The puzzle will basically fill itself in. You may want to stop before the final few tiles are done and do them yourself. It seems like someone told me that the last pieces needed to be done by the gamer.

Hi, I did all that and I can't get the torch to light,I click the rag on the stick and nothing. I can,t find anything I did not do

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 03/26/06 05:00 PM

Lakota did you do what TH suggested? Did you add gin to the torches? Did you use a match to make a torch?

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 03/27/06 12:43 PM

for some reason I cannot even make a torch, the rag will not attach to the stick and i can't get to the next level

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 03/27/06 12:52 PM

Lakota I don't know what to tell you. You should be able to combine the rags and sticks that you found in this area to make torches without any difficulty.

Lakota, I can't figure out what's wrong either--if you want to send me a save at this point, I'll see if I can solve your mystery...

I have another problem. I'm on level 5 in the Mystery of the Mummy. I'm in the treacherous Laboratory. I have found the rope but I can't find the box. I have searched the room several times and can't find it. I don't see a table against the wall, only shelving. What is the box sitting by so I can know I'm in the right location. Thanks for your help. GarfieldOdi

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 03/27/06 06:38 PM

Garfield I don't remember exactly where the box is, I only remember that I found it in a corner of the lab. I'm sorry but that's the best I can do.

Sue duh

GArfield,

This is what UHS stated:

Where can I find a box?

You found several small boxes earlier in the game, very close by.
Look in the laboratory.
One of the keys you found earlier was in a small crate on the workbench.
Look at the far right end of the workbench.

Hope that helps.

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 03/27/06 07:02 PM

Thanks Sue. My walk through didn't say to go into the lab, it just said the table by the wall. I figured it out and I went to the end of the game. Thanks for all your help. I'm sure I will be back for more help. The next game I'm trying is Syberia. Thanks again. GarfieldOdi

Having trouble with dropping the "B" seal in the center urn in the storage room. Help Please.

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 04/02/06 10:41 AM

Garen are you sure you are dropping the seal in the correct urn? Have you placed the appropriate objects in the other urns?

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 04/02/06 11:29 AM

Garen,
I think you need to read the words on the far wall at the rotating room before you can drop the B seal in the urn. Have you done that already?

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 04/03/06 12:41 AM

It won't let me "close up" on the doors. Are the words on the wall of the doors?

Re: The Mystery of the Mummy - 04/03/06 01:14 AM

You're in the "Rotating Room" -- where a step forward moves you backwards. rolleyes It's a maddening puzzle. You're trying to cross to the opposite side of the room, where you see another door. There's a clue written on that door. You can't finish the Seals puzzle without getting to that door and reading the clue.

You may want to use a walkthrough to get past this puzzle; but if you're stubborn -- then keep moving in the opposite direction from where you really want to go... and you'll get there. laugh
