Hello all.

I am having difficulty finishing up the altar scene. I have done what I am supposed to. I've tried multiple times checking the victim's left hand for the puncture mark and Holmes doesn't say anything.

I've check his neck, right hand, picked up the statuette and recreated the message. Am I missing something??

Thank you
NDfan1

Can anyone tell me how to lighten up this game? It's so dark in the caves, I can't see a thing. What options might I use to lend some light?

Hi NDfan1,

Holmes should definitely comment when you have successfully examined the finger of the left hand. Are you using the magnifying glass on the tip of the finger? Can you see the small puncture mark?

When you used the glass on the right hand, did Holmes comment regarding the dust?

He did comment about the dust on the index finger on the right hand. Is there a particular order to which hand to look at first?? I did see the puncture mark with the magnifying glass and nothing happened.

It doesn't matter in which order you do things inside the temple. But this part is tricky, there are many things to do and it's easy to miss something.

I've just gone into the game and taken a look. It's the thumb of the left hand that has the puncture mark; holding the magnifying glass over the tip and left-clicking should prompt Holmes to comment. He will repeat this comment as many times as you click on the thumb.

Try this part again and see if it works for you this time. luck

Gillian, if there is not a gamma setting from the options or settings menu, then you would have to change the gamma setting on your monitor, or in some cases, you can change the setting on the video card.

Can you change the lighting conditions near the monitor or change the angle to help?

Hi,
I'm having trouble placing the gate/ladder underneath the barrel's ledge. The lantern has been moved to light it up, but I can't find the hand icon to see where to put the ladder. Any ideas?

Thanks Looney. I changed the gamma setting, and it really made a difference. I can acutally see, although I still don't know where to place the gate/ladder.

It always helps to see lol I think you have to fiddle around to find the exact spot for that ladder. Have fun!

Has Holmes told you "there is something there?" Have you hung the lantern yet?

Are you clicking the gate on the ledge where he can see something?

Hi Looney, Yes I've hung the lantern, and moved it to shine on the barrels on the ledge. Holmes has remarked that there is something there, etc. I just can't seem to find the hotspot for the ladder. I'll keep trying. Patience is half the battle!, and I have little.
Gillann
Update: I placed the ladder and got the gun powder. The WT says to retrieve the lantern by lowering it, but doesn't say how to lower it. Help

Hi gillann,

Remember where you dropped the skeleton to the ground - just to the right of the tunnel that leads off from there, there is a panel on the wall to which a rope is tied. You can lower the lantern by clicking on the panel.
