Geyser elevator - Talk to Hutha Meo and he will leave his post. Enter the geyser elevator and see the lever to go back to the platform, an open pipe-tube and a diamond with buttons that looks familiar. Look close at the buttoned diamond and check the tracings on the blank paper (Schema) taken at the supplies building in the laptop. Press the buttons as shown by Xes on the schema. Automatically, the elevator rises. WOW!
Laboratory - Enter the door at bottom of screen. Ariane hides while Armanda talks to a co-conspirator. Armanda leaves. Go to bottom screen and take the red phial of acid (Armanda's favorite drink) :) from the sink.
Ball Puzzle - Go to the desk by the exit door and click the computer on the paper under the desktop.
12 white sister. One of them has a different weight.
In three weighings you have to find out which one of them it is.
Otherwise she'll change her name.
Ariane says 'One of these balls must go to the elevator tube'.
You are to find a 'unique' ball', it could be lighter or heavier.
You can only weigh the balls 3 times.
If you start a new game, the balls are mixed up and new balls are added.
Solution A: The following description is what works for me.
1. Start by grouping the balls to 3 sets of 4 balls.
2. Weigh 2 sets of balls (4 balls on each pan) by flipping the lever to hold and then release to weigh the pans.
If they are equal, the third set has the unique ball.
If they are uneven, the unique ball is in the 2 sets of balls weigh.
Remember which pan is the heavier or lighter.
3. Take off 2 balls from one pan - remember if it is from a heavier or lighter pan.
4. Take one ball from one pan and place it on the other pan to even the number of balls to 3 each pan.
5. Weigh the pans.
If they are even, the unique ball is found on the 2 original balls taken off.
If they are still uneven, and the pan that was heavy stays heavy - work with balls on the heavy pan.
If they are still uneven and the pans changed weight - work on the balls of the changed pan.
6. Weigh the pan the third time with only a ball each.
From here you can deduce which ball is unique.
Remember the sequence choice of ball selections - ex. heavy, heavy and heavy - the light one is the white unique ball in the last weighing.
Solution B by Jen in Chgo:
First weigh 6 balls on the left & 6 on the right.
Keep the 6 in the heavy pan.
Divide those six in the heavy pan into 3 & 3 for the second weigh. 3 on the left & 3 on the right.
Keep the 3 in the heavy pan.
Now it doesn't matter which two balls you pick out of the 3 heavy ones left. Just pick two & weigh them in opposite pans.
If one is heavier than the other, then that's the one. If they are equal, then the ball you did not weigh is the one you want.
Check the safe and Ariane says she needs more info. Go to the bookcase and open the right door. You have to position Ariane coming from the right to get a hotspot on the bookcase. Click the computer on the book at second from top shelf and see a memo about Antwerp Diamond Cutters. Go left so that the cabinet door will close automatically. Go out - uh oh, Armanda locked us in. Use the phial of acid on the lock and find Ariane on the catwalk.
Go to the geyser elevator. Place the unique ball on the open pipe-tube at bottom right of screen.
Check the desk at opposite wall from elevator door. Take a reel of film, fake photo (read), disk (analyze) and the note in the book. The disk contained 3 bank accounts - 2 personal and one official. The note in the book is a diary. Read the diary about Alexander. Look at the map on the wall.
SAVE GAME here!
It's time to choose:
Go through the ornate double doors and be famous. You will see what happens to this place when surface people comes because of Ariane's scoop. Game ends.
Go through the small door to the elevator and help the people that have become your friends. Game continues.
More Proof of the Conspiracy
Go through the small door to the elevator. Pull the lever to get to the platform. Check the news bulletin. Talk to Taal Nadi. Bares set off an alarm when he saw Ariane. Adam is at the supervisor platform. Ariane told Taal that she blocked the exit to the surface. Go to the glass roofed Supervisor building.
Supervisor Building - Talk to Adam. The safe has the proofs of the conspiracy needed to show the allies. The tubes on the safe must contain same quantity of liquid - figure what is in each test tube and go from there.
Click the computer on the chemical formula paper on the floor and read - Add the black diamond powder to the acidic solution and the white diamond powder to the basic solution. Take another sheet of iron by the control panel. Go to the Supplies building.
Supplies building - Diamond Sorting Area - Go to the main aisle to the back of the building where you saw Kia Tran sorting the diamonds. Climb the ladder to go where Tran stood before. Take the white and the black diamond powder from the conveyor belt. Read a new memo on the bulletin board about procedures to be undertaken concerning diamonds. Read the duty note concerning contact with Ariane.
Go to the geyser elevator and click on the diamond button to go to the laboratory.
Sink - Enter and go to the sink. Take the strips for chemical analysis. Analyze and read how to interpret the results of the strips: neutral - strips stays the same, acid solution - color becomes deep and basic solution - color becomes light.
Safe - There are three tubes on the front of the safe, but the hotspot associated with each tube is tricky to find. Pass the cursor over the hotspots near the top of the tubes until you can clearly distinguish three hotspots. Use the pH strips on the 3 tubes on the door of the safe.
Blue tube - strip became lighter - basic solution
Red tube - strip became darker - acid solution
Clear tube - strip stayed the same - neutral solution.
Based on the chemical formula paper from the Supervisor building, diamond powder needs to be added to neutralize the solutions. BUT do the opposite of what is stated on the paper.
Blue tube - basic solution - add black diamond powder
Red tube - acidic solution - add white diamond powder
White tube - neutral solution already.
Click the computer on the books in the opened safe and read about the confidential clients and the account report. Go back down to the platform.
Platform - Talk to Taal Nadi again. He believes now and will meet you at the village. Go to the derrick elevator. Take the ladder by the elevator. Go down to the mines.
Mines - Go to right screen by the machineries on the wall and see dynamite attached on an overhanging metal. Click the ladder on the metal door to the left of the rope. Climb up and use the knife on dynamite.
Go to the extreme left of the derrick-elevator and look at stack of dynamites on the mine cart. Ariane wants it pushed to the sea.
Go through the mine and out to the submarine. Talk to the Captain. He's still stubborn. Go to the end of the railway tracks close to the water's edge - where the railcar used to stand. Place the sheet of metal on the railway tracks and Ariane will make a ramp to the sea.
Go back inside the mine to the dynamite laden mine cart.
Use gloves and then click on the lever just a little to the left of the switch stand between the 2 rail tracks. The hotspot here is a little difficult to find.
Then click on the mine cart to give it a push. Watch what happens.
Go back and talk to the Captain. You will travel back to the dock by the Giantís village, though you wonít see an in-transit cutscene.
Arrive by the village dock. Check the e-mail. Go talk to the balloonist and select Giants. Go to the village.
Healer - Talk to Jahine, the healer since nobody else is around. She wants the Ball of Memory as proof of Bares' part in the conspiracy. Wake the plants with the help of the little butterfly that after being fed will fertilizer the flowers and the wall of vegetation will open up. Use the snare-flower. Look close at the shelf behind Jahine and take the giant red trapping plant.
To get the Ball of Memory:
Garden - Outside the arena gates, use flask full of water on the yellow flower at the corner of the garden in the foreground. Then click the butterfly on the same hotspot.
Watch. The butterfly made an opening on the wall of the arena.
Arena - Enter and on the aerial view, place the trapping flower on the sole square slab on the ground. It will trap the ball of memory. Go back to the healer.
Healer - Talk to the healer and give her the ball of memory. The matriarch is in the valley of the spirits. She gives you a flute to neutralize the force field.
Valley of the Spirits - Use the flute on the force field. Go forward until the face on the stone to bring the floating garden down. The tongue is gone but a message is left there instead. Read the message of Alexander to Bares Mohul.
Balloon - Leave the valley and go to the balloon and Gustav. Ask Gustav to go back to the City.
Market - Balloon lands at the market. See that Armanda is blocking the entry to the altimonorail station tower. You can walk directly in front of her, though, and she doesnít raise the alarm. Go to the stall with the clock. Take the blue cloth and the telephone token.
Crossroads - Exit marketplace and be at the crossroads. Talk to Enrique. Adam asked him to watch over Ariane. Wallace is at the University.
Public Phones -
Market - Check the public phone #123-06 between the barrels close to the arched exit of the marketplace. Not enough information to use the phone.
Crossroads - Go to the end of the path north of the pet shop and see public phone #123-05 left of the last house.
Main road - At main road before turning left to the market, see another public phone #123-08 at the corner. Main Gate - Go to the main exit out of the city that is now closed and see another public phone #123-04 to the left of the gate.
Communications Building - Then, go to the Communications building. See that Bares Mohul is guarding the entry to the other Altimonorail station tower. Ariane has the idea of knowing the public phone number to the tower where Bares is and trick him by pretending to be Armanda.
To get Bares away from the Communications building altimonorail -
Go back to Enrique and ask him for the phone number of the public phone by Bares. He gives you the list of the phone numbers. Read the numbers in the computer. By deduction the only phone number we have not seen is 123-09 - so that's the number of the phone by Bares.
Go to any public phone. I used the one at the end of the road north of Enrique.
Place the blue cloth on the round dial and mouth piece.
Click the token on the slot. Listen to Ariane talk to Bares.
Go to the Communication center area and see that Bares is gone. Take the altimonorail to the Academy.
Laboratory - Go to the laboratory at left screen after entering the building. Check an e-mail from Hector. Look close at table and take the note concerning the power collector from the box and the conference papers. Analyze and read them.
The Energy Collector shows that to change the collector coordinates: emit a photoelectric wave frequency 054, density 7 and coordinates 45W, 78N. The Conference paper states questions about the giants and humans.
Go to bottom of screen and close to the machine on the right. Now you will see the table. Look close at corner table. Read the paper on the desk.
Hanoi Tower - Move each roll of film to the third post to reconstruct the same tower. Caution: Never put a bigger roll on a smaller one (this may bend it out of shape).
Click on a roll and place it on any stand as long as you don't put a bigger one over a smaller one. Good luck!
For the solution - Click on R. Ellison's Hanoi Tower Puzzle Solution.
Take the note and Plimantair flask from the compartment. Read the note. Plimentaire (C2H6O): harmless for humans, harmful to giants (25% lethal). Transmitted by contact. Takes effect in 15 minutes. Cannot be eradicated. Go to Archive room right of main entrance door.
Archives - Lift up and down the lever of the big typewriter like machine to the right of the desk. Take the printout and read the RectorChoice. Hmmm!
Leave the archives - Uh Oh! Now we're in trouble! Talk to the Rector with Bares on watch.
Alert the Others of the Conspiracy
Peter's Prison - Go to right screen and look at the paper on top of the drawer right of fireplace. Message to Peter - Please detain the young lady until I arrive.
Look around a see a hanging basket suspended from a grill at the ceiling.
Go to the arched blocked doorway. While facing the blocked doorway, click on left frame by tree branch.
Peter's Laboratory - Enter the next room. Take the fuse under the right side of the tabletop and the periscope map paper on the table top. Read the periscope map and see it missing lens and mirror.

Old mine by the beach - Go to opening framed by statues and then to the Mushroom Garden. Talk to Adam. Find Gustav. To stand guard, Adam needs food, blanket, fern mattress, box of wood and coal. Find Jahine, the healer and warn her of the plague. Go and take the bones from pile in front of his hut. For proof, tell others to come and see the surface. What a list to do.
Go back inside the mine and click on items opposite the rotating wheel to pick up coal and empty box beside it.
Mushroom forest - At screen after Adam, pick up ferns.
Go up the platform station. Take the food reserves from the plate on the table and blanket from the bed.
Go to Adam and talk about Installation to give him all the items he needs to stand guard.
Adam's hut - Go through the forest and the bridge. Check the e-mail from Gary about turning the laptop on and off every 5 minutes. Go pass Adam's hut and just before the next bridge, pick up the bone (little crushed bones) protruding in front of the rocks.
Savannah - Go forward and see Gustav flying by the Giant fern forest. Click on the balloon. Continue forward until the dinosaur place. Talk to Gustav. He takes you to the Giants.
Giants Village - Read the news bulletin. In the clearing by the mammoths, pick up the dry mastodon dung and coconuts on the ground. Proceed to the village.
Talk to Taal Nadi at the hut.
Fisherman - Talk to fisherman, Payan Ouva. In exchange for a firefly, Payan Ouva wants you to put back the crawfish traps where they were.
There are 3 symbols: One male, female and one for couples. There are 3 traps: males, females and couples. The current mixed them up. Look for lines tied to bottom and then lure them with the bait.
Crawfish trap puzzle: Go left of the fisherman's hut and look close at the 3 traps.
There are 3 traps with ropes colored red, green-blue and gray.
There are 3 stones marked green-blue male, red female and both symbols in one stone.
Place the bait on a stone.
When a crawfish comes, check the color and then click on the corresponding colored trap - either the red or the green.
Then click another trap and it will change to the color of the trap you initially clicked. Then clicked on the third trap to change it to that color also.
You're done when the bait disappears from inventory and you get out of the close-up mode.
Talk to the fisherman and he will give you the firefly.
This is what worked for me:
If Green crab - sink green trap, sink gray trap that turns green, sink red trap that turns green.
If Red crab - sink red trap, sink green trap that turns red , sink gray trap that turns red.
Healer - Talk to Jahine. She needs heated coconut, crushed bones and berries from initiation lane to make the potion to protect the village.
Go to initiation lane look close at last post on the left, use gloves (one glove) and pick up the berries of the 5 senses. Go back to the healer.
Place the mammoth dung on the rock close to the healer's leg.
Use the lighter and then click it on the dung. It will now be on fire.
Place the coconut on the fire and see it floating.
Place the berries on the coconut.
Place the crushed bones on the coconut.
Tell the healer about the preparation. She says - Pour the brew on the sponge and squeeze it on the village square.
Use gloves and take the floating coconut brew to get a ready sponge.
Go to the hut, talk to Taal Nadi about the sponge.
Squeeze the sponge on the holes on the floor right of Taal Nadi.
Talk to Taal Nadi again. He will see you to the Valley of the Spirits.
Valley of the Spirits - Talk to the matriarch, Aira Mnude. Watch!
Go back to the balloon and Gustav. It's time to go back to the city.
Marketplace - After landing at the marketplace, the phone rings. Answer the public phone left of the entryway. Enrique wants you.
Ariane says to disable the balloon. Go to the balloon, click on the control panel and take the helium bottle.
Communications building - Go to the communications center either by walking or the altimonorail. Talk to Enrique at the communications control panel. He gives you the master key to block the altimonorail to the Academy.
Use the elevator and then look close at the control panel. Click on the button under Academy to turn it to red. Pick up the pliers from the floor.
Wallace - Go to the Pharmacy, left path from the crossroad. Talk to Wallace about the poison and other topics to convince him.
Now to find the missing parts of the periscope after all the invitations given out:
Go to the pet store by standing at the hotspot on the road in front of the store. It's closed. Use the master key and enter the pet store. Go to the backroom office and use the pliers on the magnifying lens by the half triceratops. What else was missing on the periscope? Mirror.
Go to Ocine outside the city gates. Talk to Ocine and he allows you to take the mirror from his camera. Go to the tower and click on the camera to get a small mirror.
Read the new e-mail from Gary. Click on the dinosaur-power railcar.
