This walkthrough is just one order of events. You can do the visits in the order you want.


Abbesses - Minette's House of Design

Nancy arrives in an old windmill (Moulin) at Abbesses that was turned into a Minette's House of Design. Minette is throwing one of her famous tantrums.

Office:    Meet Heather McKay, Minette's senior assistant. Nancy lost her luggage and cell phone. Heather gives a Metro pass and explains your duties at the office. Answering the phone is your responsibility. There is a list of things to do on your computer. Learn about staying with Jing Jing, couture and that Minette is designing the First Lady's dress for the World Summit. There is a Zippy calling card and the case files in the tool box.

Minette's workroom:     Go and talk to Minette. Learn about Amy Grunhild (Nancy's secret employer) financing her business. Do not touch the dress form that will be used for the First Lady's dress.

Tea preparation - Minette wants you to brew her special tea. Look at and follow the instructions. Take note of the specific requirements. Nancy will ask Minette questions.

Minette's just had a tantrum and her favorite color is red. She is on a deadline and right handed (Gaviforme family). She is wearing pants today and she selected number 10. She is not humming today, so she needs tea potency rating of 7 and above. Red is her color for the day, so marshy area herbs are needed.

Take the tea from the shelf and place them on the pot over the stove: Boojum (10 potency), Breland (marsh), Callicula (Gaviforme), Fennelry (Gaviforme), Gibbering (22 potency), Hogbone (Gaviforme), Macrophylla (7 potency), Phyrigia (9 potency), Pipsweet (8 potency), Varvaine (marshy) and Yellow Buttons (Gaviforme).

Click on the teapot.

Look around the room. Check the red paint covered large gears on one wall. Read the magazine on the coffee table. The article on Minette written by Jean Michel Traquenard shows a picture of Minette in this office. Minette uses the word 'rude' to mean cool. Check-click the picture of Carol, the dress form and also see a cut off picture of Minette by the large gears. Exit the room and then get called back.

Minette wants 4 more new stuff based on the 4 items at the center podium. Take the basket and be given 195 Euros to buy things at #7 stop Pont Neuf and go to Square Du Vert Galant Park. Look at the 4 items on the podium: a blue drum, red hubcap, green pail and an orange bar stool. Hmm... They are all circular or curved.

Fix plotter:   The  Skard 2 - DV8 leaflet states to adjust the plotter using the V vertical, H height and I ink settings. The leaflet showed 5 possible setting adjustments.

Click the 'start' panel of the plotter right of the desk. See the different settings for V, H and I. The lowest bar on each of the machine settings is the base of the bars on the DV8 leaflet. Do the first bar pattern first and see if that fixes it.

Add one bar to H to have 1 bar on V, 2 on H and 1 bar on I. Click on print. See the plotter produce a good print.

Go to Marchand and buy the Food Substitution Book.

Go to Hotel DeVille and talk to Jean Michel. Ask to order food and then select Crème de Glace. Take the mint.

Go back to JJ's place.

Bake cookies - Read the food substitution book and see that you need 1/2 c of white sugar and 1 tsp of molasses in place of 1/2 c of brown sugar. Go to the pantry cabinet right of the stove and take molasses. See Electrical engineering books. Wonder why she has these books.

Place the molasses at center part of the island behind the measuring spoons. Place the mint on the chopping board on the right and it will be automatically chopped. Now, you're ready to start.

Based on Noisette's obituary, the Cross of Lorraine and some information gathered from Lynn; the war ended in 1945. Enter 1945. The door opens.

Take the red book with the same nut and an N on the cover. Read the book.

See a picture of M380 with a code under the picture. Click on the picture and Nancy will make a comment that it is similar to the paint covered gears in Minette's workroom. Take the graph paper.

Turn the page. Read the letter seen. Take note of the tips:

1. Set the 3 dials in correct position before decoding or encoding a message. Then type in the message.

2. Never use the enter or return key.

3. Ignore punctuation and spaces.

4. A circle with a slash is zero.

The letter also mentions the use of Metro system's line or stop numbers for a code. The date shift ciphers usage is also mentioned. Take note of 3 red asterisks on the letter and the same red pen is used on the M380 writing on the book.

Abbesses or at Jing Jing's place:    Call Zu. He says that the metal door etching and the cover of the book is a hazelnut - Noisette. He saw a door with that marking at the catacombs but you will need a wetsuit to get there. It is waterlogged under the Mouton Beverage Company. Mouton... Hmm...

Rue du Bac - Dieter von Schwesterkrank:    Talk to Dieter. He gives a postcard owned by his great uncle. It shows 4 keyholes or key places: catacomb, Moulin (windmill), the Cross of Lorraine and the secret passage through the small clock here at Dieter's. Each corner has the hazelnut picture. We've seen the one here at the secret passage. Let's check the one at the Cross of Lorraine.

Eyes, graph and codes - The other side of the postcard has columns and rows of colored eyes. Read the dot cipher coding in page 11 - 12 of the code book.

Also check the date shift cipher.

Look at the postcard with eyes in inventory, then place the graph paper from book taken from the secret passage over the eyes. See that the eyes fit under certain letters or number.

Remember what the researcher, Lynn Manrique said - that Noisette's last words were red left... green.

From left to right, click on all red eyes looking left and all green eyes.

Take note of the colored words: gray Europe, pink Pont Neuf, blue Blanche and purple Chateau Rouge.

Remember the tips in the letter found inside the M380 book. One of the tips is about the usage of metro stops as codes.

Europe is a metro line 3 stop; Pont Neuf is a metro line 7 stop; Blanche is a metro line 2 stop and Chateau Rouge is a metro line 4 stop.

Enter the numbers 3 7 2 4 on the lock. Take the propeller type key.


Go down the ladder and go back to the landing at the catacombs. Dive down, L, 2F, R, 4F, R, F, L, 2F, R, F, L, 2F, R, F, L, 5F.

If the Day ends:     The next day read the newspaper about Gunther and Ernst Schmeck, formerly East German Secret Police accused of smuggling.

Port Neuf - Square Du Vert Galant:    Go to Marchand. Trade the wine bottle for the decoder.

Abbesses:    Go to the office. Go to Minette's door and see a bomb that is attached to her door. It will set off when the door is opened. Minette is back there and is getting antsy about what Nancy is doing.

Paint bomb - Open the bomb door and see connectors that have color and shapes.

The paper on the door shows the correct sequences to be done: similar shapes or similar colors. Different colors and different shapes sequences are wrong.

Arrange the connectors to connect by similar shapes or color. This is a timed puzzle.

Click on a connector and then click it on the one you want to replace or the place you want to put it on.

Decoder:    Now that we have the decoder, it is time to decode the M380 code.

Look close at the decoder in inventory. Open the bottom cover and see 3 dials.

Turn the dials to the numbers seen on the big gears in Minette's picture shown by Jean Michel - IX V III on the 3 dials.

Click to go up to a close up of the paper.

Then type in the code taken from the M380 book using your computer's keyboard. Remember the hints from the letter, no spaces or return key and that circle with a slash is zero.

Type:    XTI0SMKPQQLNOREZA7LXTI0SMKPQQLNOR3AS7LXTI0SMK3A or check the book. Be careful of the zeros 0 and the O difference. Don't worry if no letters appear on the paper yet. Some letters appear only after 2-3 keys are pressed.


The decoded words are: Rouge Blanc Rouge Bleu Rouge. Check page 4 of the dictionary and see that it translated to: red, white, red, blue, red.

Windmill (Moulin):     Now for the fourth key place seen on Han's postcard.

Enter the workshop and look at the central post in the room. Check right of the blue barrel. Place the propeller key on the central post.

Windmill lock - See 5 black bars. Change the colors of the bar using the colors decoded from the M380 code (top to bottom): red, white, red, blue, red.

The windmill turns.

Noisette's secret:    Go down the trap door and forward until the door. Use the key taken from the hazelnut chest under the fish fountain at the park.

Enter and see what Noisette has taken during the war.

Go forward to the stand and take the letter under the glass cover. Read what Noisette wrote. How sad! 3 Roman numerals are seen under her initials: X IV III.

Put down the glass cover of the stand and the trap bars are triggered.

Lock door - Open the door and see words inscribed on the plate with lines underneath.

Check pages 8, 9 and 10 of  the decoder book. Review the date shift cipher.

Code the words - Using a set of numbers, shift the alphabet to the right. For example if one of the number is 2 and the alphabet to be decoded is C; it will shift to the right 2 places to make C to an E.

The set of numbers used to shift the letters here is taken from the M380. Use 380 as the shift number.









































































Decode the new letters using the decoder.

Enter the 3 Roman numerals under Noisette's initials in the letter. X IV III.

Click up to the paper and type in the coded bold letters seen at the bottom row above.

The decoded words are DEUX.............UN.CINQ..SE.PT

Translate using the dictionary to 2 1 5 7. Enter that number on the door.

End sequence:    Go forward and hear the conspirators. Review the Ichi-Do book bought at the park. Go up the trap door and take the First lady's dress. Caught!

Listen to the shouts that precede the punches. A certain shout identifies the location of the punches. All of the moves are in the Ichi-Do book.
