Loving this game, but am just not seeing the way forward here. I got over to the second globe and saw the leter & guide to orientation. I got all the lights up on the right control, which opens up the left control. I can't see how to make them individually move, for one. And I can't get back (teleport) to the 'main' island without putting the central laser reflector back down...Fom what I gathered in a w/t, I'm hoing to need to rotate that central lens around to various other globes?
The text w/t and a video commentary one haven't been real clear about what to do/how to approach solving this puzzle, so I'm afraid I might be going in circles for a week or two or more, lol! Anyone seen an approach that somewhat clearly lays out how to do what needs to be done here?
Thanks in advance-Murphy

Let's wait for another Quern player to help you.

I moved your post over to Adventure Game Hints. wave

On the first mechanism, you pull the handle and the brass pointers pop up, you point them in the direction the paper says on the table. with the other lit mechanism, you light up the ones(pointers) you need to control. the handle on the left of this mech. controls the sequence of the lights...hope this makes some sense...

My pleasure. This is one of the best games I've played for years. very very myst like. I highly recommend this for the myst lovers..it is a head thumper of a game though.

Think a little bit, thanks. However, on the left control, it moves all the dials at once-not one at a time (can't individually control). Obviously think I'm doing something wrong (totally clueless, lol).
If I were able to do that, do I try to pick/orient two or three globes? In any special order? And how can I change them? I'm guessing I'd need to do the one close to where I am first?
Also, I can't get back to main island without putting main reflector down, so I'm guessing I don't worry about that until last? Just confused...

You can control them individually with the mech. that lights up, just play with the handle on the left and the paddles, it'll come together. Its as difficult to explain as it is to do. You'll get through it though...You just need to point them in the direction that the diagram says on the table.

Thanks, of course, Bert! I sorta figured out what I was needing to do from one video w/t, and fiddled with it a bit, but then found a w/t from Afterwork Gaming that was very clear as to the procedure. Recommended for any others stuck!
