I had no problem in 3rd person view either... not that it didn't take several tries, but it was all about the timing. I did try 1st person and had no luck at all.

I have tried f1 and have found it really hard to make it run smoothly. I am going to stick with 3rd person. Eventually I will get there! Hope 2020 isn't a leap year!! Have watched the YouTube video a few times. Gee he makes it look easy. Thanks you for your input. cheers, Alfoil.
oh: ps
I was given a contact from gameboomers who apparently will solve the puzzle for you if you send your saved game. Am waiting for a reply. Wish me luck.

Here is what I emailed to alfoil's PM to me:

OK, this is the OFFLINE version of the game, right? There are no saves in the URU game that would allow me to send you a solution with the access to the bucket solved. If it were the online game, I could meet you in the game and accompany you to Teledahn and solve the puzzle with you.

What I can offer is some discussion and advice to help you solve it.

1. Do you understand the goal?

- After starting power using the telescope device and syncronizing with the sun, and pulling the three levers (one doesn't work), the buckets should be ready to run

- When you approach the buckets, the goal is to pull the lever, then run down the short stairs and turn right to get to the stationary bucket and click on it to jump in. You have only about 10-15 seconds to do this. Using 1st Person view is easier for some folks (F1 toggle). ALSO, how you move your avatar is key - I use the mouse only (no keyboard arrows) and it is easier that way. Practice it many times before actually clicking the lever.

- If you fail to get to the bucket before it starts to move, there are several ways to try again. a. Stop the buckets with the lever; but this is difficult because you have to time it so the bucket stops at the dock again. It may take several tries. b. The other way is to leave Teledahn then quit the game. Often when you return the buckets will be at the dock ready to try again. c. If this doesn't work, you can stop power, then restart it again with the telescopes to try to get the buckets by the dock again.

Have you considered trying the free online game? It is the same as the offline hgame but has a few extra goodies. The beauty of it is you can get help on these hard puzzles.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,

Dadguy

Thank you for posting the suggestions, Dadguy.
Hopefully they can help not only Alfoil, but anyone else having problems at this point in the game.

Huge excitement,YES! have finally solved the bucket puzzle. I would like to thank you all (especially dadguy and jenny 100) so much for all your help. Once watching the YouTube how to do, it all fell into place. Well worth the time it took up as the sense of achievement was such a buzz. I had actually been trying to do it so much harder than I needed too. It was my husband who finally cracked it, so its out with the bottle of bubbly! Again, many many thanks, cheers, Alfoil.

Glad to hear you got past the trouble spot, Alfoil.
Cyan intended for the game to be played online, and puzzles like the bucket are fairly easy when played by two people, but a lot more difficult when you play them by yourself.
