Thanks, MaG. Got it. I hadn't clicked on the correct warehouse door having gone into the yard.

I'm chasing the thief and am in the China town yard. I removed the 2 boxes from the pulley platform which is supposed to rise-it doesn't. Now what to do? I remember when I played before, it was fairly easy, now I'm stuck.

Hmmm, have you pushed the boxes completely clear of the platform? think

Hi Rushes and TLC..I have tried several times pushing the boxes off the platform, and well away, but still, nothing is happening. Too, there's no hand icon, but you can still push the boxes. Is there any other thing that I'm missing? Thanks!

Gillann,

Can you push the boxes in the opposite direction? think

Hi, I just re-read the WT, and it says to "climb the other end of the scale"?, and push the boxes off. I have no idea what that means. I pushed the boxes off the platform, that sits on the ground, and is attached to the pulley system. The platform looks as if it's floating, so it's hard to tell if it's on the ground, or floating above the ground. Don't know what the scale is.

Gillann,

Do you have a previous save you can go back too, to try pushing them in opposite direction? Can you send me your save and I'll install the game, to get a look at what's going on? wave

I think the "scale with boxes on it" is the same thing as the platform you're currently standing on, gillann. When I played this previously I don't recall having to do anything other than push the 2 boxes out of the way.

I also have saves for around this section - the file sizes are mammoth, though. If they're too large for you to e-mail to TLC, I don't mind loading up my game and seeing if I can replay the chase scene from the saves I have here.

Edit: I installed the game and replayed that part. After climbing the ramp and jumping down into the yard, the platform with the 2 boxes is more or less straight ahead of you. With the platform lengthways on to you, push each box in turn forward and off the far edge by simply walking into them (no clicking) - they will tumble off the platform. The platform then rises, with Holmes standing on it.

Thank you, Rushes. I went back and tried what you suggested, but no luck. The platform swings slightly, but doesn't lift. I'm going to go back to a Save, and see if I missed anything.

If I remember correctly, there are 2 of those platforms.
One closest to the sort of balcony you want to get up on and the other at center of the yard (counterweight).
The one you are in has boxes or crates that is why it is below the place you want to get to.
You move the boxes off the platform so that the weight is lesser than the counterweight at the middle of the yard.
To get those boxes off, move towards them as close as you can and that will push-nudge the boxes off. luck on the replay.

Hi, MaG. I just went back to a previous Save, and breezed through. The boxes fell off, and the platform lifted. Very odd. That's happened before with this game. Something won't work, or progress until I go back and do it over. Anyway, I'm off and running once again.

Now, I'm stuck with the Star clock puzzle. I can't remember what you're supposed to do to have the safe revealed. I have the nos. for the combination from the WT, but what do you do with the diagram in Documents. Clicking on the nos. does nothing.
Thanks!

The clock diagram is a clue to the safe only. You do not do anything to it.

To get the safe open: again,
click at and pick up all the active items inside and outside the manor.
Examine all the active items.
Read all documents taken.

The safe will automatically be seen by Watson when your done. luck

That's wonderful that you found them. The game is very picky.

Picky, indeed! I'm down in the caves, and as I reacall the first time around, it's very difficult to see. According to the WT, I've picked up everything necessary, and have walked up the planks. Holmes remarks that there is something there, but can't tell what..The WT says to walk up the planks until he reamarks that there is definately something there. Then, you can proceed to hang the lantern, etc. Well, I've walked up the planks several times, and there is no action icon, and he says nothing. Where am I suppposed to look? I see a barrel, and something else, but can't tell what.

Ohhh I remember being stuck there too. It's been a long time, can you move him around to find another spot? Can he climb?

gillann, I've just gone into the game to take a look. Once you've climbed the planks and are looking up at the ledge, the hand cursor should appear directly at the bottom of the dark barrel (where it meets with the ledge).
