uh oh; I got that it's left mouse zoom, right mouse to fire, or whatever, but how do you aim? The w/t says analog stick. I'm on a computer, not an x-box. What do I use to aim? I'm just moving the mouse but it's not very accurate. I hope they have an infinite supply of shells for this cannon because I'm going to need them. slapforehead nu2gaming

help I can not, for the life of me, hit any of those sorcerers. I've read the other thread (JohnBoy and Darlene's) and don't see that any of you have had any trouble with this. Any suggestions? cry nu2gaming

I'm baaaack! Finally made it to land. I spent hours trying to kill Dagon with shotgun and tommy gun. Finally gave up and went to the cannon. I had to kill him again before I reached the first save point. Am now trying to get to that little island at the end of the ledge. Once, I got there and saw cutscene then somehow fell off. The next time I fell into the water while still trying to navigate the ledge. I'm going back in. Wish me luck. nu2gaming

Hi there,

Just got back from a mini-holiday.

Walking along the ledges is tricky. You'll learn where to jump after a few tries.

Hi hagatha; I missed you. Well It took a few tries but I finally made it to the cave. Missed a turn or something somewhere because suddenly I was outside the cave staring at some vicious spikes on one side and a drop to water on the other so I need to reload. Luckily, I ran back and saved after the lower ledge so only need to repeat the higher one. I do enjoy this game, if I can at least make a little progress each day, the cannon and sorcerers had me ready to burn the discs. My son to the rescue. I'd never have made it. Was gratifying to get Dagon. evil nu2gaming

Wow. Getting past these waves while on the ledge is tricky. I've learned not to stand. But even crouched, when I try to check to see where the ledge is, I'm in the water. mad nu2gaming

Finally got past the waves several times. happydance I'm in the room with the green stone, console and wall plaque, where you use Ruth's brooch. Every time I push the brooch Jack's vision goes all whonky and I can't get him to move. Of course I can't see which way to go anyway. I've tried waiting out his vision problem but by then the timer has lapsed. I've tried checking out the room for an exit before I push the brooch but don't see anything except what looks like a crawl space behind the green stone. How do I get out of here? nu2gaming

Before you push the brooch for real, push it and explore and find where you need to go. Kill all the things that get in your way and then come back and push the brooch again. The first thing you need to do is make a jump to a very narrow ledge and then follow the maze using the red lights.

Thanks Pokey; I'll try again. I still don't know why Jack goes all whonky and won't move. I haven't seen anything to kill, and believe me I'm looking. nu2gaming

Jack's insanity comes and goes because..well, because he is insane. There isn't always a trigger. Jack is very afraid of heights, so he may go wonky if he's standing on a ledge. If you have to make a jump it's best to just do it, looking up slightly, rather than have Jack stand around, because he WILL go on a wobble. If he gets too bad, stare at the ground or something that isn't threatening and wait for his heartbeat to slow down again.

I did find that exiting the game and starting again seems to reset Jack's sanity levels, whereas reloading a save from in-game seems to result in him getting progressively worse.

By the way, congratulations on getting past Dagon. Now that was a satisfying victory, wasn't it?

I'm having a really hard time in this room with the green stone. I think I found a ledge (behind the green stone; when I jump I get higher than the stone), but once up there I can't get Jack to move. The only way I see is to the right. I can get Jack to move to the left, but he just winds up back in front of the console. Please tell me if I am totally wrong about the ledge. help nu2gaming

The ledge is near the bridge. You have to jump across a chasm to land on a very narrow ledge and then you head to the left to reach the tunnels. Did you use the Book of Dagon on the control panel?

The Call of Cthulhu forum is supposed to resume today. Maybe the search function will finally work.

Yeah Pokey I did use the book of Dagon. Please tell me something. A couple of times I've seen a glowing red stone. I've tried to pick it up but it turns back to a plain stone when the timer stops. Is this something I am suppose to grab, (while it is still red)? nu2gaming

You don't pick up any red stones. There are red stones that mark the trail as long as the timer hasn't expired, and the red jewel in your inventory, which you place on the pedestal before the timer expires.

Thank both of you very much. I think I'll take a break. My body should look like a prune, I've fought those waves so many times. I'm not making that jump to the ledge. (I'm not a very good jumper). Don't see a ledge by the broken bridge on the right so will keep trying the one on the left. Bye for now. wave nu2gaming

Are you sure you are jumping to the correct ledge? I jumped it many times and had no trouble. The ledge is very slim and hard to see. Not something you would think to jump to.

No Pokey I'm not sure. I've been trying to jump to a sort of half round ledge to the left of the broken bridge. There is a very thin one on the right I'll go back and try that. Thanks bunches. nu2gaming

Hi; Well I finally made it across that jump. At first I kept trying to jump close to the bridge and kept falling. Then I said, "what could happen, you'd fall"? So I tried jumping closer (to a ledge I wasn't even sure I was seeing) and I made it. Only to fall in some kind of hole a little farther. Oh well. The reason I started playing these games is because I had so much spare time. So what the heck. nu2gaming

Oh dear. After you go across and kill all the scorpions, or whatever they are, and get back to the bridge do you stay on the narrow ledge all the way across or what? I keep falling off before I get to the bridge.

EDIT: Nevermind. I finally looked around, without falling, and saw the cave opening. Now all I have to do is make that jump. So far no luck. I wish you didn't have to go all the way back to where you use the lever. That seems too long without a save. nu2gaming

You use the lever, and then make the jump across the bridge and follow the lights on the ground until you get to where you need to go. It isn't very far -- it just seems like it is because you can end up going in circles if you lose sight of the lights.

By the way leave the green jewel where it is.

Hi gang; You won't believe this. I finally found my way to the stand for the red stone. Unfortunately, not in time. I've been back 4 times the last time I thought I was going to make it and I fell in the pit. rotfl cry At least now I think I can do this. nu2gaming

It's a fantastic feeling. Especially when you're not very good at this. The very hardest part for me was shooting the sorcerers with the cannon. Finally had to give up and have my son do it. He knocked them out bam, bam, bam. I had been trying for two days, never hitting one. Was getting ready to burn the disc. But from the sorcerers on I've been on my own. With great hints from boomers :kiss: praise thanks nu2gaming

OK. Here's what's happening. I fight the polyups (it takes forever for that thing to charge up) then when no more come at me I move and am suddenly surrounded by bluish/greenish everything (it sort of looks like being under water). Have I been knocked off the bridge or has the program crashed?

Someone else had this same problem. I think it might be a bug. But try the sequence again just to be sure.

The official site is up now, so you might be able to get some help. There's some stickies about technical issues.

Whoa! This is going to take some doing. In all the times I've shot the gong, run upstairs, killed the fishmen and then got the fishman point of view (once), I jumped up to the statue but don't know if I managed to trip the switch. I didn't see Jack's hand, and then it was back to Jack's point of view. Did I or didn't I? And do you really mean I have to do this for four statues. Whew! How do I know when I trip the switch? I'm worn out already. nu2gaming
