I'm glad you were able to get Jack moving again.

How did your son speed him up? Jack only ever moved at one speed for me - almost painfully slowly. I always felt like screaming at him -- "Run, you fool! Run!"

Hagatha; there is a patch you can download where you can pick and choose all kinds of things (including god-mode) like Jack's speed; severity of injuries etc., etc. A very long list.
In case anyone is interested it's from JohnBoy on page 2 of this thread.

EDIT: Alright! I want a save just before you enter the ritual chamber. Soon I will start cheering the bugs that are eating Jack alive. nu2gaming

OK. What's the trick? The first time I entered the ritual room I managed to push the stand with the red stone almost to the door before Jack collapsed with DT's. Now I've been back 4 times and I barely get in the room before he's down. cry duh rotfl

OK. What you're trying to do is get a red light beam to shine on that spot above the door you came in. The statue sends out the red light beam when you push the button on the apparatus at the end of the room. The light bounces off the statue.

You need to push the statue to ABOUT half way to the door, but do it in stages, pushing the button after you push the statue, to see where the light is shining.

The statue in this room seems to make Jack REALLY loopy, and it eventually drives him insane. By the way if you end up in the asylum, you get back to the game by exiting your room.

Once the red beam has hit the spot above the door, you have to take the red jewel from the statue in order to open the door, and that's how you get back out - same door you came in.

Thanks hagatha; I thought I had to push the thing all the way to the door. And I didn't know anything about a button. The first time I pushed the stand almost to the door. Ever since, Jack blows it quicker and quicker. The last time, I barely entered the room. Is there a star/save point I can get to to bolster his sanity before I try again? And, I thought when he goes completely bonkers I had to reload and try again. nu2gaming

The first bit of this area can be tricky but all in all, since you have your weapons, this level should be a walk in the park. Er, comparatively speaking.

Edit: Oh, and one thing I found about Jack getting worse and worse - he does seem to do this with each reload from within the game. I actually found that if I exited the game and then restarted Jack seems calmer.

I'm sure I've been in every room downstairs and upstairs, back downstairs, opened safe, back upstairs. Where the devil is this stone tablet I'm supposed to translate? I find a big arch looking thing but no tablet. nu2gaming

Woo Hoo!

I got confused by that tablet for a long time, too - kept looking at that archway.

Hi hagatha; I have to tell you a couple of times I regetted letting Mackey out. Now I'm down in the ritual chamber and I can't get the door to open. Is it a timed puzzle? Please NOOOO! I hate timed puzzles. Anyway I pushed the buttons on the backs of the statues: (Dagon; Hydra; Dagon; Cthulhu; Dagon; Cthulhu), but the door is not opening. I don't know what else to do. help nu2gaming

No, it's not a timed puzzle.

You have to look at the broken pieces of the wall fresco and work out where they go to get the order of the buttons, and kneel in front of the statues to figure out which of the anchor runes is for which god. I had trouble with this bit too.

hagatha; I'm pretty sure I have the wall plaque thing figured out. But I cannot figure out which anchor goes with which statue. The three "anchors" are in the same order under each statue. The symbols for the statues (under the anchors) are different. Under Dagon the upright anchor is over the symbol for Dagon; under the Cthulhu the upright anchor is over the symbol for Cthulhu and under the statue for Hydra the same anchor is over the symbol for Hydra. So who belongs to what? I went to the walkthrough and it said the order is Dagon/Hydra/Dagon/Cthulhu/Dagon/Cthulhu but that doesn't work, the door does not open. nu2gaming

If I remember rightly it was only one of the statues that had the correct anchor pictures, which is where I got all messed up too, trying to figure it all out.

Edit: The official forum seems to be permanently down, but I found a decent walkthrough at gamefaqs.com. I tried to link but it won't let me.

Thanks hagatha; I found the walkthrough. It explains how to match anchors to statues but gives the sequence which I have already tried. I haven't been able to get it to work. Maybe someone could e-mail me the correct combination so it doesn't spoil it for anyone else. Please help nu2gaming

The order you used is correct. Are you sure you identified the statues correctly?

Pokey; Just got home from mahjongg so haven't tried yet, but as I face the statues there is Dagon on the left, Cthulhu in the center and Hydra on the right. I can't figure out why this is not working. nu2gaming

I don't recall their positions. Does your cheat have a level skip if all else fails?

I'm going to check the patch. I'll let you know. rotfl No, I don't find anthing about skipping a level. Am I trying to get thru the wrong door? help nu2gaming

I had never before had Jack comment on the broken fragments. oops When I did that, then looked thru the grills in front of the statues then pushed the buttons, the door opened. I am now on the bridge. I cannot thank you enough for sticking with me on this. nu2gaming

Thanks popcorneater; You know, I had moved in front of those fragments 20 times or more. I just had never had Jack comment on them. I can't believe it was something so simple. Guess that will teach me to have Jack examine everything. nu2gaming

OK. Jack is not doing so good. There are body parts all over the deck. He's been to the storage room and back up. All I can get from the ensign is "Check the cannon sights" and something about witchcraft. I can't seem to give him the ammo. Please tell me what I am forgetting. nu2gaming

Managed to get the previous problem solved. Now I'm trying to deal with the waves and the cannon. When I get to the cannon and click the action button I get a view of the ocean but I don't seem to have any control. How do I fire this thing? As a gunner I seem to rank (from 1-10) about zero. My brain knows this is just a game but my mind is saying oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. duh nu2gaming
