There is a walkthrough on GameBoomers here. Maybe that will help you out.

It sounds like you are doing fine. This can be a tricky game and some parts of it are timed. Just use the walkthrough as a guide and it should work out okay.

I think it's always helpful to look at more than one walkthrough.

I would use the one you already had, the one I linked you to on GameBoomers, and UHS Hints also has one here.

I remember your having some technical problems the last time you played this game, but I don't remember now the exact nature of the problem and/or the solution.

If it's a cutscene, try hitting the space bar when it starts and see if that gets you past it.

Otherwise, I would post your difficulty over in the Glitches forum to see if they have any advice for you.

I seem to remember that there are only six save spots, yes, which hardly seems like enough, but I guess it has to be or else no one would have finished the game. smile

According to the walkthrough, the fake register is in the upstairs study, which you go to after the parlor.

Did you look at the part of the walkthrough about the parlor to see if that helps you?

THE PARLOR

Turn back and enter the green draped door ahead of you. You'll be facing a set of double wooden doors. Turn left and walk to the corner to examine the empty sarcophagus. Sherlock remarks that it looks like Momphis XI seems to have gone for a stroll. Now how likely is that? Note the sand. When you back out of the picture, look right to examine the wall mounted rifle, then go forward, turn right and click on the lavender colored draperies to reveal another door. Let's continue our examination of this room first, however. Look down in front of the sofa and pick up the note from Elizabeth. She didn't tell you she'd studied archeology did she? Wonder why she wouldn't mention that?

Turn left and walk toward the fireplace. Examine the mounted lion's head over the mantle. A hunting trophy, no doubt. Continue left and look at the large corner cabinet. You'll find that you are, as yet, unable to force it open. Turn left. Walk to the opposite wall and look down in the dark, open cupboard to pick up the PIPE CLEANER.

Look up and click on any one of the displayed pipes to hear that Sherlock and Lord Montcalfe have a love of ornate pipes in common. Nothing else to do here. Look up and click on the picture of Lord Montcafe. Sherlock muses that it is strange that none of his archeological finds can be viewed down on the ground floor. When you back out of the picture, look at the large wall framed family tree, which it appears, Lord Montcalfe has vandalized with some particularly virulent comments. Take particular note of Sherlock's remarks about Jonathan Parkey ("thief, murderer.)"

Swing around toward the entry door. Look at the pictures on the wall beside the door, of Montcalfe in Egypt. Leave the room. Turn right and go forward once. Turn right and enter,

THE UPSTAIRS STUDY

I don't think so, as you get the register after this section of the walkthrough. I only mentioned it because you said you didn't have it.

The spyglass on the tripod is in the upstairs study, according to the walkthrough.

If you scroll down the page for this walkthrough here - it shows you the slider puzzle solution as well as a picture of what it looks like.
