The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/03/11 11:52 PM

Hi Mag,

Sorry to contact you this way but there a problem while creating potion especially step 4!

Now how immediately must we put bone worm into?
I know potion has to be blue but each time I put bone worm it explode!

Must put bone worm when potion turn completely blue or just about to?

Regards

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/04/11 12:09 AM

The walkthrough states:

When the potion turns blue for the third time, immediately add the bone worms (top right pink).

So count off when the potion turns blue (the potions turns blue 3 times) as stated by the recipe.

When I did this myself on replay to write the wt (Carla did it for me for the first run through) I believe I added it as soon as I saw it turn blue for the third time.

I exploded so MANY times in steps 3, 4 and 5. I was screeching already.

Ah, yes? And how did you keep your sanity doing the rain dance? I seriously need to know before they come after me with a butterfly net. Aaaack!

I've got news. This is going down in history as the equivalent of that old goat puzzle in BS1. My history, anyway.

I look at the bottom area only. This way I see what is coming without those above it.

Looking up and anticipating those coming down adds to my being careless and pressing the arrows before they are in the brackets.

I use 2 hands on the arrows. Each hand has fingers on 2 arrows. Just like typing, I try to remember which finger presses it.
The puzzle is forgiving after a while. luck

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/07/11 04:37 PM

Well, I guess you could say it's forgiving...sorta. grin Four fingers does help, though. Thanks, MaG!

I really I'm trying to solve the puzzle of the Wupperman and his wheel of fortune with no result. Can I have a saved game after this torture or I have to try and try for ever.

Thank you

Giovanna,

Have you asked Wupperman about your future? Ask him about the colors.

I must admit blush that it is somewhat gratifying to know that even Mag (!) has to attempt something multiple times to finally achieve a goal. lol That makes me feel better, as I always imagined Mag breezing through a game, getting everything right the very first time, without any problems whatsoever. I must have blown poor Wilbur up a dozen times before I finally got the potion brewed!

Rain dance? More devious puzzles that take some serious effort and speed to accomplish?! eek Oh dear, not looking forward to that, from the sound of it! I'm not that far into the game, but I have to admit that I am thoroughly enjoying this game so far! smile

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/07/11 08:21 PM

You don't really need speed, LadyCav, but you do need coordination, something in which I am obviously deficient. <g> Got past it though and I really love this game. (Have I already said that?) It's beautifully done; I've only run into one mini-game sorta thing (urk, the rain dance) which tickles me no end because I love inventory puzzles; it's laugh-out-loud funny sometimes and, well, just charming. Now there's a word I've never applied to a game before.

Gil.
Posted By: LadyCav

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/07/11 10:21 PM

Thanks, Gil. I'm sure when I get to that point, I'll have plenty of opportunities to practice my own less than adequate coordination skills. smirk And I agree that it is a funny and charming game - I've had plenty of laugh out loud moments myself.

I have done all you have mentioned above, he tells me about my future and I'm able to get the first and the second color but with the third one nada, help mad
Posted By: traveler

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/08/11 12:06 AM

Truthfully, I guess the third one, Giovanna. It came down to a choice between two colors after I'd learned what the first two were, so I picked one of the two. The second time, I guessed right. Maybe if I'd been better at asking questions I wouldn't have had to guess. <g>

@traveler

I really try to understand you but I cannot, can you expain it to me in simple words,

Thank you blush
Posted By: MaG

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/08/11 12:57 AM

Giovanna,

The saved game is sent.

But if you want to do it your self -
- You only have 5 questions to ask.
- use the first 4 to determine the first 2 colors of the wheel spinning.
- you only have one question left.
- you use that one question for the third spin to determine:
Is it color 1 or color 2?
If yes from above: Then it is either color one or color 2.
If no from above: then the color will be one of the 2 that you didn't ask.

So you have a 50-50 chance of getting the correct answer.
- Now I found that more often than not - the third color is one of the 2 that is closest to the choice I did on the second spin that is seen on the wheel. luck

@MaG

The saved game just it did not works, I have renamed to be the last of my list, but I could not find it, anyway I did it by myself, but now I have serious problem in order to make the portion works whatever I do, in the end I explode, how nice, any help? crazy
Posted By: traveler

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/08/11 07:23 PM

Do you always explode in the same place, Giovanna? You have to do 'exactly' what Wilbur says.

If you explode when you are stirring the potion clockwise 4 times, anti-clockwise 2 times, then clockwise 3 times, be sure your cursor is in the same place when you start a stir and when you end a stir. If you start a stir at the top, end it at the top. At least, that's what I had to do to stop exploding.

Gil.
Posted By: MaG

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/08/11 08:23 PM

Thanks, Gil.

The saved game should work. Maybe a mistake in extension?

See if you can replace one of your old one with the one sent and it will work. But you have finished that puzzle already - I see.

As for the potion - as Gil stated - follow the instructions at top right.
The walkthrough has some descriptions also. luck
Posted By: GIOVANNA LARIOU

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/08/11 11:07 PM

@traveler @MaG

Well I will try it again and If will explode another time then? Does the puzzle solves itself after a while or not crazy
Posted By: MaG

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/08/11 11:29 PM

It doesn't solve itself but either it becomes forgiving or I got used to it. lol

Which step are you exploding on?

Follow the directions stated at top right of screen. The ingredients are labeled when the cursor is over it.

Step 1: Put ghost mushrooms (top left) into the pot and stir until the water turn green. Stop stirring.

Step 2: Add mouldy slime extract (bottom green) and stir anti-clockwise until the potion turns pink.

The potion goes from green to black to yellow to pink.

Step 3: Add the red devil's armpit (middle left red) and wait until little red bubbles appear. Then stir clockwise as quickly as possible.

Stir rapidly in clockwise direction several times until the next step.

Step 4: Sprinkle the stag beetle antler powder (black bottom right) into the potion. When the potion turns blue for the third time, immediately add the bone worms (top right pink).

Step 5: Then add the asthmatic transfat maggots. Stir the potion (normally) clockwise 4 times (change to white), anti-clockwise 2 times (color change yellowish) and then clockwise 3 times.

Step 6: Finish it off with the peppermint leaves for that fresh minty flavour. Add a few leaves and stir until the potion turns a golden yellow colour.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 03:37 PM

Well that is really weird, it makes me wonder what other e mails I am not getting but should be.

I use Outlook and I have added both of you to the address book, I don't know what else to do with that, I can't seem to add you to safe sender unless I have an e mail from you - catch 22. I use Panda Virus guard etc., and have checked that and no one is barred. It wasn't that long ago that Rushes sent me a save game and I received it fine. Any one any ideas??

Went into Outlook again and found Junk mail options and added gameboomers to safe senders perhaps you would try again and see if that has worked. - THANKYOU thanks
Posted By: Rushes

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 03:54 PM

I've just re-sent it from my GB addy, Mon. luck

Edit: Rejected again as spam, sorry. frown

Edit2: I've just checked your old postings -- the last save game we (MaG) sent to you was back in August. Have you changed your e-mail address since then?
Posted By: monbron

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 04:44 PM

Nope nothing has changed, I checked my profile and the e mail address is correct, I'm not sure what 'rejected as spam' means 'cos I get loads of spam and have never experienced having an e mail I sent rejected as spam. Have you tried from your other e mail address which you have used to me in the past? failing that I could speak to one of my friends and let you have their e mail address by private message and you could send it them and they could send it to me, failing that I guess we could post on glitches, as to where the problem is, is my my isp or outlook or my virus guard?
Posted By: Rushes

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 05:02 PM

I tried it twice -- once from my private addy, the other from my GB one.

Whatever way we can get the save to you -- great. Yes, you could post at Glitches also. You might just need to tweak your current settings slightly to allow file attachments.

Thank you so much, MaG! smile

I received the file and it is now listed below my 12 save games in the savegame folder in my documents.
But how do I get the game to open your savegame29? The game always opens up to my last autosave.
I tried renaming the file "_autosave.ksg", but it wouldn't allow that.
Posted By: MaG

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 07:13 PM

If you have 12 saved games file (last one labeled savegame12.ksg) - then you should renumber the one I sent to be savegame13.ksg.

Then place it with the rest in the savegames folder in My Documents.

As to open it - click on "load game" and then scroll to select which saved game you want to play. luck
Posted By: LadyCav

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 07:23 PM

Thanks, MaG, that sounds so simple. But...

I can see the list of savegames in the my documents folder:
savegame1
savegame2
savegame3
...etc.
savegame13 (your sent save)


But when I click on Load Game, the page in the book reads what I saved them as:
beforedance
OgreCave
new game
crypt
IvoTemple
...etc.

SaveGame 13 doesn't have a "name" and is not on the scrollable list.
Opening Auto Save only opens the "beforedance" game save.

??????
Posted By: MaG

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 07:31 PM

I believe that it is labeled (26 or 27)Lightning dance.

Be sure that you have not removed the extension.

Also scroll to start of the list - they might be arranged by dates.
Posted By: LadyCav

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 07:42 PM

Yes, I understand that much. (Your save was 29).

But although it is copied to the save game folders, it does not show up on the list in the book at the beginning of the game where you click on "Load Game".

I even moved all but 2 or 3 of my game saves to a temporary folder on my desktop, because the book pages with the load game and save game commands only allow 8 names to be shown.

Then I tried to start the game again and only those 2 or 3 games (along with new game and autosave) are shown on the list in the load game command.

Should the game save showing the name you gave it, such as Lightning Dance be showing up in the list of games to load? I'm not seeing what I've done wrong?
Posted By: MaG

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 07:48 PM

The load and saved game pages allows more that 35 (my own saves).

So you are not scrolling to the next page yet.
Posted By: LadyCav

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 07:54 PM

I never saw an option to scroll to the next page of saves. My "book page" at the beginning of the game only shows a list of 8 game save titles. duh

But I deleted the save game you sent and started over from scratch. Instead of dragging the file from my email attachment into the save game folders, I chose the "Save As..." command, and saved the file that way instead.

This time it showed up on the list and I was able to open the game after the dance was completed and then save the game again! yay

Thank you very kindly, MaG! I appreciate it! urock

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/15/11 08:43 PM

LadyCav,

Right down at the bottom of the page where it says Load Game and over to the left there are two marks that look kinda like birds in flight. Something like this > if you turn it. That's where you click to move up or down in your saved games to load one. It sorta threw me because I didn't even notice them at first. smile

Thank you very much Mag. I had to replace the autosave file with yours and it worked.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 11/29/11 08:43 PM

Mag, again I'm asking for your help. Could you PLEASE send me saved games for BOTH the POTION and RAIN DANCE puzzles. If you DO, I PROMISE that I will try my HARDEST to beat those puzzles the 2nd time I play this game.

Got em, Mag. Thank you SO much. YOU are SO GREAT.

OK. I just received BOUT from England. I installed it and it's running just fine (so far). I'm sure that I WILL be using Mag's two save games when I reach those parts, BUT, I promise to try and "beat" them on my own, FIRST. I'll keep in tough with you fellow Boomers as I plow along. Happy Gaming!

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 12/08/11 02:26 AM

OK, Mag. I'm trying to get through the POTION puzzle. I get SO close, and then---BOOM! I see it's all a matter of timing and coordination. HOWEVER, even though I received your savegame, I'm DETERMINED to do it by myself. I promised that to you when I "begged" for that savegame.
My next posting on here will be to let you know that I had done it by myself, so wish me luck.

luck You can do it - patience and watch the colors. It took me forever and the first time Carla saved me so that I can write the wt. I did it myself afterwards - after I wrote the step by step and remembered it.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 12/08/11 03:21 AM

YAY, Mag and fellow Boomers. Right after my last posting, I went back to the game and DID IT on the first try. Now I'm going to "plow on" until the NEXT puzzling puzzle. LOL I'm sure it will be the RAIN DANCE puzzle. I'll let you know how I make out.(I'm going to try to do it without the SAVEGAME at first.)

I didn't receive the game yet from Interact but reading the comments about a difficult rain dance, I just want to know where in your wk, MaG, are you explaining how to play that dance? Maybe reading about it will help me past through it when the time comes. Thank you in advance. Sali

Dance dance revolution: Go to the dead tree in front of the cemetery where the antenna is located.

Click on the dance step paper given by the shaman.

Using your computer's keyboard's arrows; click the arrow keys similar to that scrolling in the game when the game arrows are inside the brackets.

Make as few mistakes as possible. The game is forgiving after several tries. Good luck.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 01/27/12 08:02 AM

Oh dear, that darn raindance is awful! I do actually have a save but it isn't showing up when I click on the "load" button. Maybe I've installed it to the wrong folder, it's in MyDocs. under Bood of Unwritten Tales in the save folder there. Trouble is that when I click on load it just goes back to the original save before the raindance which was an Autosave.

Any ideas would be great so thanks in advance.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 01/27/12 12:59 PM

Hi Jo,

Did you renumber the save before placing it into the save folder?

Here's a step-by-step:

From the e-mail attachment, download the save to your desktop without opening it.

Then, renumber this file to be the last in your save folder. i.e. if your current last save is savegame14.ksg, then renumber this one to be savegame15.ksg.

Then move the renumbered file into your save folder along with all your other saves.

Exit the folder, start up the game as usual and load the new save. You’ll likely need to scroll all the way back to the beginning of your saves to find the renumbered one, as they might be in date order, and this is an older dated save.

luck

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 01/27/12 10:08 PM

Thanks Rushes, Unfortunately that didn't work - I know it should have though!! I'd tried that previously but what actually happens when I go into the "load" screen is that only 8 Saves appear along with the Autosave which I took out of the folder in My Docs and there are really 27 saves including the downloaded one. Also a save that I'd deleted is showing up, so what's there is just the Autosave, the save I deleted before the Dance and the rest say New Game! I just don't get it, very seldom use save games at all, not something I like to do. I was wondering if the save is somehow supposed to be in the Book of Unwritten Tales in the Programs files but I can't see anything there with a save game folder at all and the things that are in there aren't ksg files anyway (and all in German or something).

Looks like I'll just have to keep on trying to get the Dance right myself somehow or other.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 01/27/12 10:19 PM

JoAJ,

You say there are only 8 saves in the Load screen. Have you looked at the bottom left of the Load screen where there are two marks that look like floppy V's or stylized birds? If you click on those, they scroll up and down through the saved games. If you didn't know that.

Btw, your saved games should be in My Documents.

Gil.

Thanks a lot for that Traveler, yes it was there when I scrolled down although it didn't seem to be in the right place - don't know how on earth I missed those little arrows at the bottom either - duh, most have been having a "senior moment"!

Then I had one, too! It definitely took me a while to realize those marks at the bottom left were there to be used; I thought they were decoration. lol

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 01/31/12 10:46 PM

Hi, folks.

A friend of mine in Guild Wars told me about The Book of Unwritten Tales. I looked at the trailer and promptly bought it. The first two chapters were great, but now I'm stuck in the town with poor Wilbur getting blown up by his potion-making attempts.

I'm ready to quit. My friend says it's worth going on. My fingers say "how can we do this any differently to keep from exploding?" I got as far as the penultimate step... once.

So, my mind asks for a savegame, please.
Thank you.

Edit: Thank you very much, MaG.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 02/07/12 10:44 PM

welcome TodyTao,

Try to go to another screen and then open your inventory and see if you can read it. luck

My saves are unlabeled - so I don't which one is where you need it.

I can send you a group and you can check which one is closest to where you are right now. Tell me if you want this.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 02/08/12 12:09 PM

As i said i tried everithing but no use. Even instaled patch and replayed half chapter to that point and again that happens... So i would be happy if u send me all that you have. Thanks

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 02/08/12 05:30 PM

No use, all saves are before spot where i am frown
I also tried replaying the oldest but same happens...
You dont have any more saves after those?

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 02/08/12 05:34 PM

No. Those are the last 3 saves I have.

Maybe someone else can help us here.
Posted By: traveler

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 02/08/12 05:37 PM

TodyTao,

I'm really hung up right now but if you can wait a couple of hours I'll install the game and see if I have a save you can use.

Okay, I've looked and as far as I can tell, I didn't play in quite the same order as MaG did and I don't really know which save will work. I don't believe I have any that are right after Nate using that crumpled paper. Your choice. I can send you a bunch and you can look through them.

Gil.

I´m stuck at temple. My game crashed when i tried to get Nate up and now that saved game is bugged so i cant use it anymore.. I started chapter 3 from the beginning and now im stuck.. i should turn the symbols and open the door to Wilbur. When I align the symbols on the wall and press the button nothing happens. I have tried so many times. Symbols are correct but game is bugged..mb cos crashed. And now im getting annoyed >:(

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 03/04/12 08:06 PM

welcome AnsQ

Have you clicked on or checked the clues that gave you the symbols for this puzzle first (before doing the puzzle)?

My saves are not labeled. If you want I can send you several and you can check how far away I am to Chapter 3.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales - 03/04/12 08:23 PM
