Hi Linda,

Around by the side of the staircase you should find a darkened section of wall with an alcove. About eye level you will see a hook for your lamp to hang - place the lamp on this, and you'll be able to see the items you need on the ground.

Ok, you mean at the top of the stairs? I did find that alcove and about eye level I did see a hook but I am not getting the "gears" to use the lamp - I did try that duh

I will try again if that is what you are referring to but I have been in that alcove a few times. Maybe I need to pan the bottom too, I haven't tried that because I thought the grappling hook was at the base of the stairs.

Thank you Rushes,
Linda thanks

**edited: Ok, my bad, I had to go downstais but this last attempt finally brought up the magnifying glass and I did get the hook! Your hint about "eye level" really paid off. Many thanks again Rushes!

No, at the bottom of the stairs and around a little to the right (I think). The hook will be eye-level to your left as you face the wall. luck

Stuck again, this time in the Library in the castle.
Found the letter from Dracula, and the box that won't stay open... over in the corner found the box to put the opal in but no ray on desk and when I click on the desk's hotspot it opens/shuts right away and the desk is not opening duh

I have checked both w/t and cannot see what I could be missing please?

thanks Linda

Nope - the lever I pulled was on the ladder slapforehead

I'll try and get back to edit if I succeed.

thanks MaG

Linda

**edit: looked and found more w/t's and realized I must climb the ladder again and this time the mechanism stays open and sheds some light on the desk. thanks

Glad you got it. It's been so long I can't remember the nuances.
Have fun.

If I can jump into this 'thread' instead of starting my own = I am in the cellar area to the left of that desk with the lamp on it in the mine car/track area and have ridden the car once and thought I crashed it, found the switch handle and switched the track but now cannot find my way back to my 'car' to take another ride - please point me to my 'transportation' and thank you, sorry to bother you on this 3 day holiday, we just came back from our weekend 'outing' shopping at Goodwill and what fun!
Love, Betty Lou

Hi Betty Lou,

You're in the right area. With your back to the table, move forward towards the large wooden scaffolding ahead of you in the main area of the room. To the right of the scaffolding you will see the rail track and mine cart ready and waiting. Have fun! The graphics in the next sequence are great.

Thanks Rushes, I am quite pleasantly surprised and somewhat amazed that the graphics of this old WIN98 game remade and playing on XP are so great - I am enjoying this one yet again (have played it 3 or 4 times in the past) and had forgotten how easily I get turned around and cannot find the right 'path' or the 'hotspot' but am looking forward to playing Last Sanctuary again too before jumping into Dracula3....oh what fun we have!
Love, Betty Lou

I'm stuck again or maybe I just can't find the right 'hotspot'. I have been to the Library in the Castle, lit up the carved desk and took the plaque, dragon-medal, key and crossincircle. Have talked to Dorko again and returned to Dracula's bedroom. I cannot seem to place the 'crystal ball' onto that pedestal...is this the red ball in my inventory? I don't have anything else shaped like a ball - have I missed something? Thanks
Love, Betty Lou

You should be able to speak to Dorko about the crystal ball - she will then take the red ball from you and transform it so that you can use it on the pedestal.

Have you examined Dracula's bedroom thoroughly?
