Also in the theatre backstage I need help in opening the locked box,or possibly a save game, never been good at these jumping over to get to other side games.

now if I can help in anyway up to where I am stuck, be glad to share what I have done thus far.

I can't even get started ... the game just freezes on the second instruction screen ... it just sits there, and there's no spot to click on to continue

I thought it was just slow and would turn over eventually ... still nothing. I tried again by uninstalling and downloading again ... same thing

I see above that others are playing, so I must be doing something wrong ... anyone else have this problem?

I've wasted almost the entire trial period ... help please

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/08/08 03:35 PM

Menahune, did you email BFG support? They will be the ones most likely to help you.

Have you turned off your firewall and any virus protection while you try to install? And closed other programs?

I have had to do that for one other BFG game, but when I did it, the game installed just fine. luck

Also, no worries on wasting your trial period menhune. It will not start ticking down till the game is installed and running. As long as you aren't playing, there is no limit.

In the theatre backstage I no longer need help opening the chest because hubby did it for me.

However I still am stuck in the theatre room I need to decode vincents note and can't figure out how to use the decoder.

for those who do not know what I am talking about I think I am in level 4. Even though I am still stuck I love the way the puzzles are so different and so much fun. I also find it fun to use Sherlocks lab again.

Hi kate, my hubby had to do it for me, but the object is to get all the white pieces where the black pieces are and the black pieces where the white pieces are. You can jump over pieces but you cannot go backwards. There are two items you need in the box and are used backstage.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/08/08 10:09 PM

I have never played any Sherlock Holmes games. I am at the very beginning, and have no clue what to do with the thread in Holmes lab. I checked it under the microscope, but after this can not figure out what to do to progress in the game. Any help will be appreciated!

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/08/08 10:17 PM

Donna,

Place the cloth under the scope.
Use the scissors or tweezers to get a thread and he will say he will keep it as evidence. It will be see in the evidence frame later.

-------
Sherryah,
I rushing to replay and just got to backstage for you.
I'll be back for the decoder. Just got done in backstage.

-------
Sherryah,

Decoder - First, check the letters at the center - they are clues.
You already have 2 clues: one with pipe - HOLMES and the one on the right Da VINCI (LZXJQPJ).
So click a letter on top that needs to be changed (for example for HOLMES - it is the coded word VHEIKU.
Click on V and see a new set of letters. Click on H and see that Under the V the letter is now H.
Now you start decoding the message at bottom. All the V there are now H.
Continue to change the letters for HOLMES to Holmes.
Then do Da Vinci.
You will see clues to do the others,one is Shakespeare...
I think you can go from here now.
All the V at the bottom are now replaced with H.

I am backstage. The box on the left has a tile puzzle on top.
I need to switch the right tiles with the left tiles. You can only go in one direction with each color. You can move 1 square or jump over the adjacent tile. I am stumped.... smile

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/08/08 11:10 PM

MaG,thanks to you I beat the timer with decoding vincents note, but what do I do after reading it? the timer is still ticking down. Is there suppose to be a few mispelled letters in vincents note? I have 2 minutes to go and I do not want to have to do over this level.
------
Flo, you take the letter you found and hold it over the small puzzle piece in your inventory bar, this opens another large window where you assemble the pieces. You can rotate them with your right mouse button, they do not stick together but the pieces fit perfectly. When it is assembled the will hold together and form the complete note. Hope this helps you.
Posted By: MaG

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/08/08 11:15 PM

Sherryah - No mispelled words. Double check those letters to the spoiler I posted above. Double check that you have replaced the letters on top so that the message is correctly spelled.
----- Be sure that you have done the BUT and KNIFE on the message.

Kate - to do this puzzle always keep different tiles side by side.
Start by pushing right tile, then jump a left tile over it.
Then move right tile.
Jump the left tile and so on - keep different tiles side by side.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:19 AM

OK.... I solved the coded note, got the box open, used the things in the box and saw a name. Look at dead man' photo, collected the things from it. Got the things from the suspect and now I don't know what to do next.

Not to sure about the deduction chart. Have managed to get green lines on all except the thing that looks like a clock but don't really know what I am doing with that.
also.... the table that holds the locks.... it puts the puzzles you have finished into it. Is there anything else to do with it?
Posted By: MaG

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:29 AM

Go to police frame. Click on file at left tray and you should have several pictures. You should do all those and usually new places appear.
I think after the body - Lord whateverhisname is is the next one. Also check the right file tray.
Then check map for new places.

The deduction board and the microscope table can be done later.

MaG,trying to put together Brians tattoo I saw what it should look like by his picture but please tell me how do I know if the piece of the wall puzzle is correct? This is not an easy tattoo to remember. Thanks
Posted By: MaG

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:37 AM

Gee - I remember this on my first - I stopped on this replay.
Let's see - I remembered that the top looks like a spread eagle and the bottom is like a straight line with a hook to the right.

You will know if it is correct because it will fuse and he will say so.

Make a sketch-drawing and you can make it. I did this by trial and error bec I missed seeing the tattoo.
Posted By: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:39 AM

Sherryah, there is no way to know. Even when you are done, it takes a momemt to register. It really agitated me because i had to do the level twice because I ran out of time and it gets stuck and thinks before telling you it's right.

No time to waste, the game is afoot. lol

The tattoo is collected as evidence off the suspect and also on the wall.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:44 AM



Check the shape of the pieces and see which one looks to be the correct fit.
I did it and forgot to take a picture of the finished wall stuff.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:49 AM

wow this is the most fun I have had playing a game, its like we are all in the same computer room. LOL

I solved the tatoo by clicking on everything and don't ask me how but it worked. I went back to holmes place and used lab stuff however no more objects are left and nothing is lighting up to tell me where to go. no new places. Please tell me where or what do I do after assembling brians tattoo? no place is left open.

There is something in the Garden of the landlady's house that is stopping me from moving forward, but I can't figure out what it is.

I found all the clues, decoded the message, so the deceased's room is now locked, after uncovering painting of girl. But the Garden is still open and the girl is not showing up in suspects file. After finding the message to decode, is there something else to be done in the garden?

Flo

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:57 AM

Flo, its been awhile since I went there but you did unlock the cabinet in the garden right with the key? and got everything out of the cabinet?
Posted By: Flo NS

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 12:59 AM

I got the page that needed to be decoded, was that all I needed from there?

I have all the clues from the garden.
Posted By: Sherryah

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 01:01 AM

trying to remember did you knock over the pot in the cabinet? are there any objects that need found left in your inventory bar?
Posted By: Flo NS

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 01:07 AM

There are no objects left to get. I got the message and the girls name and then your supposed to be able to go to Scotlan Yard and read about her as a suspect. The gears in the evidence box are gold so that means there is nothing to actually do with any of the evidence. So, I don't know.

I only have 4 minutes left, and only 10 minutes on the trial. I'm going to buy it anyway, and start over. I'll be able to save the hints now that I know what to do to get to that point again. See what went wrong.

Thanks anyway,
Flo

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 01:10 AM

MaG and Ana, forgive me I feel so stupid the problem why I wasn't seeing anything new was I had not clicked on the green check mark on Lindon, now Lindon's place has opened up on the map. This is my sign to go to bed, so until tomorrow, goodnight from Ireland its after 2:00 am.
Posted By: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 01:21 AM

Flo, I went back to the garden in level 5 to complete it. There is a whole nother round in there.
If in doubt that you are missing something, try and move the objects in the inventory box. If they don't move, you didn't find it yet.

Sherryah, sweet dreams and see you tomorrow.
Posted By: Flo NS

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 01:46 AM

I have all the clues from the garden, the book page and the decoder card. I've decoded the message "I will kill you Vincent" and it shows up after clicking each letter and the name of the next suspect is there. But the suspect is not showing up at Scotland Yard.

This is only the 3rd place to find clues, to get to the 3rd suspect. The gears in the clue box are gold which means nothing left to do with clue items. But the garden won't lock because there is still something outstanding. All my hints send me to the same place I found the book page, there just isn't anything else to do there that I can see, yet the game won't move on.

Could it be a glitch, or is there something I'm missing doing. All clues in evidence box move, so I have them all. I don't have anything left to analyze. Already did green cloth and cigarette ashes. Nothing shows up in bar.

Am I supposed to do something with garden knife found in garden?

Flo

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 01:56 AM

Okay I'm having trouble in the Garden. I don't know how to begin to decode the letter. Can someone tell me what to do? I have all of the items and I finally figured out to put the letter over the puzzle piece to get the decoder, but I don't know how to use it. I have read the other posts, but I still can't figure it out...a little slow I guess? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:04 AM

Flo, Did you check the character on the left file tray?

Sly, Move the decoder to see the red checked (L) letter on the middle hole. Then you will see the words of the letter.
Click on each letter to form the letter at bottom left.

Trisha, I stopped replaying and can't remember the slider. Let's wait.

Hi MaG

Both suspects have been checked, the guy that found the body and the landlady. But the girl doesn't show up. I even downloaded the strategy guide and went to that spot, but I did everything. Maybe I should just uninstall and install again.

Trisha,

The pattern you need to copy is the one on the left.
Move the cursor over a tile and see the arrows. Those are the directions that you can move that tile.
Move the squares to copy pattern that looks like a 4 on the left.
Do one arm first, then the horizontal tiles and then the other arm. luck

Sly - you got it?

Flo, Any new face on the right file tray? Check also if all the circles on the locations are grayed out already. If it is still gold - it's not finished.
Posted By: Flo NS

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:34 AM

Yes, the garden is still gold, but I just don't know what to do there. If all the evidence is found and the letter has been decoded, what else can there be.

I'll check the right tray.

Nothing showing up in right tray, and only 2 suspects in left tray, both checked.
Posted By: MaG

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:36 AM

Are you sure all items have been found? Click and see if it is movable as Ana stated. If not click the puzzle or gear at the bottom after each item pick up. There might be something to be read yet in that inventory.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:37 AM

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:40 AM

Everything goes back to inventory box. The gear is gold, which means nothing left to do mechanically. As for the puzzle piece, that was for the letter, that is done. I have all items.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:41 AM

There is a code you will get to let you know what letter sequence to push Trisha. I am suffering from timer agitation and it's affecting my thought process. I believe there is a paper under the rug?

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:42 AM

Flo will it let you go to a different place on the map and did you go to sherlock's table where the microscope is. Okay Thank you will go check and i know what you mean by timer agitation. Thanks
Posted By: MaG

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:42 AM

Trisha,

Find the items. If you get the paper that is under the left corner carpet - click the puzzle icon.
Then you will do that puzzle by darkening tiles based on the numbers on the left.
Once that is completed, you will get letters.
Then you can work on the close up view of the books.
Click on the books clued in by the letters and you will get another item for the inventory.
Posted By: Flo NS

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:59 AM

No Place to go to, nothing left to analyze, the only things that showed up to analyze were the green cloth and cigarette ashes.

Is anything supposed to be done with the mud traces found in garden. They don't show up anywhere as evidence like the knife, shoe print and cigarette ashes which are at the deduction board.

If I can't figure it out tomorrow, I'll uninstall and reload.

Thanks anyway,

Flo, I trying to find out where the saved games are located or how I can help you by seeing your game.
Meanwhile - check if you have new places to go to or new ones in old sites.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 02:15 PM

Flo, are you sure you can't progress by ignoring the garden? I swear I had to go back to the garden a level later after other evidence emerged and then it was done. Can you check out other areas to see of something is missing elsewhere? There are three areas to get caught up on paperwork in the desk too at Scotland yard. Have you double checked all three?

Widget, you crack me up! rotfl

No fear a walkthrough is coming! monky

There's been so many games released in the last week that I wasn't able to get started on this walkthrough. I will start working on it later on today and I will let you guys know when it gets posted.

I tried to do screenshots etc and it's impossible to do in most situations without starting over or running the timer down. Kudos to you...you do a fantastic job. I was not cut out for the hints part of gaming.. lol

Is there any way to magnify the garden after you've been in the bedroom. I can't find the key, the book or the footprint. Everything is so small or else I'm really losing it. grin I recognize the locations from SH and the Silver Earring.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 03:15 PM

fil, there are some that I would never have found even after the hint was given. I looked around as best I could and used the hints for the one you absolutely couldn't. I did a lot of random clicking and it worked 99% of the time.

I can't remember the book; but the footprint is under the NE corner-in front of that thing.
The key is in the ?hanging? pot above that same place.

I applaud all of the mods, especially the ones who help each of us when we are stuck in the games and make walkthroughs. Like I said to MaG last night your all great!

Ok, I am really stuck at the safe in Lindon hall, trying to make the number 4, thus far that is my most hated puzzle. Any help or secrets would really be appreciated. Looking forward to that walkthrough Margie. Has anyone finished the game yet? I hope its a long game.

Big hugs to all Mods

Posted By: MaG

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/09/08 03:45 PM

Sherryah,

I still don't know where the saves are located.
Let me see if my memory can guide you.

Start on the left vertical arm. Count how many are needed for that arm using the picture on the left.
Raise the second from left column and push the required tile(s) to the left to make the correct number. Then lower that second column down.
You will see that one of those row (I think second from top) needs 2 tiles side by side. When you lowered the second column - push 2 tiles to the left and then lower the rest to make the horizontal middle tiles. Push back the recessed 2 tiles to the correct position.

Now, count how many tiles are needed to make the horizontal middle tiles.
Push down the remaining tiles to make that horizontal line.

Now do the right vertical lines.
Start pushing the tiles below the horizontal tiles to the right and up to make it.

The tricky part is making the 2 tiles side by side on 3 points on right side.
By this time you can play with it.

Hey Holmes players!!!

I've been refreshing this thread every 30 seconds and had to join because this is driving me crazy. I read MaG's response to Sherryah and I must be way dumber than her because I still can't figure out the sliding boxes to make the "4" on the left.

I've been pretty good at getting every other puzzle (so far) on my own but this is killing me! A step-by-step would help a lot.

There has not been a Casual Game yet we have been able to use a saved game from so I am not sure that will work. They save over themselves so you only have one and they are to your unlock key/profile.

The puzzle can be replayed from the chess game in the middle of Baker Street though.

Not sure which level I'm on maybe 7? I finished the 4 slider safe. The problem I am having is opening a box where you need to place 10 different numbers, but you only get 5 tries. I can figure out a way to solve the puzzle without relying on pure guessing that finishes the puzzle in 5 moves. I need 6. Any clues? The code resets every 5 moves.

Susz, I solved the puzzle by starting out 1,2,3 etc. and hitting the button. The remaining ones I increased by one to the next remaining #. I solved it the first time.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/10/08 06:10 AM

Hello all I am not quite sure what level I am at but it is where you have to put random numbersin and then the pin and string and then more puzzles after that. The problem I am having is I guess I am just not fast enough cuz I am constantly running out of time and I got so stressed out I gave up on it for awhile. That timer in certain puzzles is okay but this one is ridiculous. Now that I have gotten it off my shoulders does anyone have a strategy of getting that level done. Thank you Trisha hardwall cry
Posted By: pdbugdoodle

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/10/08 10:14 AM

Trisha,

That level is particularly difficult...I think I had to re-play it 2-3x before I finally got through it. The trouble comes with how limited the time window is in combination with 2-3 puzzles that have a variable luck factor. Although I found I made better time (& was less stressed out) when I went to the do my most difficult puzzles (jewelry box, line/box game under victims bed) as soon as they become available. The jewelry box is avail right away (I think) in the ladies sitting room. With the jewelry numbers puzzle you need to get lucky and pick as many of the correct digits and then carefully switch the remaining incorrect numbers with the closest wrong number to the right (could be left - just repeat the same pattern for clarity/speed) then keep switching until you get them all correct and then (you may have quickly bop into Scotland yard - check "suspects" "testimonies") move on to the garden in victims apt & do slider in bottom of garden cabinet on the right... finish garden which should open up the victims bedroom again. Go straight to under the bed and begin to solve the most time consuming puzzle in this level. This can be really tricky but if you keep your eyes open & watch where the computer played his latest line and watch for anytime there are three lines around a square and close it and with your extra turn look to find another 3 lined square to close. Be very careful not to create a 3 lined square until there is no other option (almost 3/4 of the way through). Try to copy the types of line placement that the computer uses with the exception of adding the 3rd line to two because this sets the computer up to take a square. Watch out for sections that are setup in a run, if you are forced to add a third line (because there aren't any other places left) be sure to add it where there are the absolute fewest 2 line boxes which can be made into 3 lines and are setup in a run to fall like a line of dominos once the first 3 line "box" in a row/group is closed it creates the next 3 line "box" and so on to the end of that section. If you are cautious you can get through these time consuming puzzles and then speed through the rest in good time. Good luck...hope this helps...

welcome Tuakka,

I think this will be difficult to show or do a step by step.
Try to be systematic about it and move the yellow/red ones outside until you find a place that they are turned to green from left to right.
If moving them outside the area doesn't work, move them inside in an open space.
If you run out of space -= move the points all closer to one another. luck

Kem, I believe the puzzle you mean is the one with 10 digits and 5 tries? I solved the puzzle by starting out 1,2,3 etc. and hitting the button. The remaining ones I increased by one to the next remaining #. I solved it the first time.

Did you add solvent in the dish too? Try clicking on what you put in the bowl after you add the water and solvent. I remember that every one I did in there was different.

Thanks for the fast response! But no--it's a number thing, under the floor panel in the storeroom that opens after, um, the thing with the pigeon (trying not to be TOO spoilerific).

The instructions say you have to get the numbers in order, 1-10, and the top space can only have one at a time, the middle three can have more, but they have to be consecutive, and the bottom one also can only have one. It just really seems like the choices I'm making are the only ones, and then I'm stuck, with no moves left. *g* I need someone to hold one of them for me for one move, and then it'd be all good.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 12:22 AM

I had to keep clicking and line up the decoder page with the letter by looking for the red paint smear or check mark looking thing and then I just clicked on the letters.

Chris, let me replay it and get the answer for you...hang tight please.

Kem, I started with 0-9 and then clicked go, then I upped each one that was remaining by 1 (keeping in mind you can't have 2 of the same so you may have to up one twice and then clicking go again. Each time I just added 1 to eacgh remaining and it worked. I'll try and get a screenshot to show you what I mean. The numbers are random. THere is no real solution other than tryying a technique that works for you. Mine worked for me and was easy to keep track of.

I'll be back.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 12:44 AM

ChrisMM, If I remember correctly, I did a 78910 on the inner area.
Then I made 5432 on the other area.
I used the outer areas to make those 2 alignments.
Then I rearranged them to 1-10.

Sunnydde, Place the decoder over the letter with a middle hole on the letter with check marks. Click on each letter, punctuations (whatever are in the holes) so that they get entered in the area at bottom left. When the message is complete then auto puzzle is done.

Kem, The way I did this is 1 2 3 4 5 1 2 3 4 5 on first run. Then raised the number one up skipping a number that was found in the first run. I usually finish the puzzle in 2-3 repeats.
BTW - don't forget to use zero after limited choices are made by 3-5 round.

luck

wave Ana! Didn't see you.

I know Sue, did the same and I was always impressed at all of the hard work she did and all Mods do for us voluntarily. I just feel led to say your doing a great job, and Texas Sue would be proud of you. Sue and MaG usually were the ones to get me out of jams, but Ana, your doing an exceptionally great job.

Hi all. I'm new to this forum, but it seems like one of the few places that has any help for this game. I've really enjoyed the game, but I can't finish it!!! I've completed all levels, all of the puzzles, analyzed all the evidence and made countless connections on the Deduction Table. Does every piece of evidence have to match a suspect? Is there one suspect who matches something in each location? What is the clock thingy all about? Is it time of death? I've played the final level 3 times now and run out of time on the Deduction Table. How do I end it??? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

welcome Deege and thanks for helping the others. It is appreciated by all.
I also combined your stacked postings. It helps us here in the forum. Use the edit button please.
As for the deduction, all the lines should be green leading from the victim to one room to one suspect and the knife and time at the center. Then it is done - you found your murderer.
You can do this by finding evidences that connects all those frame. luck

Maria - did you find all the pearls?

Kim - have fun now.

menahune - You see the picture and that is what you need to copy in the puzzle.
Each of those pieces have 2 shapes in the left that can fit in one spot. So you have to find the correct drawing in those pieces. So enter the easy ones like the top diamond shape and then the spread eagle.
Do this based on the shape of the piece you want to fit in and then select the correct drawing inside those pieces.

luck to everyone.

Thx Deege!! and np about my name.. what's in a name anyway?

So I was able to empty my inventory of unanalyzed items except for one of the grease patches. I was able to get it into the bowl with water, but couldn't light the burner. Clicked everywhere. I still have to do the lock with 1 - 10. It's not very explicit about ascending or descending, which is frustrating, because I hate to use a walkthrough when I can basically solve something, but I personally can't get what they ask for grrrr. Any suggestions?
Thx again!

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 12:36 PM

x2kul,

In one or 2 of those samples to be tested over the burner - you might have to add solvent and water; then click on the burner. See if that works.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 12:44 PM

Thx MaG will try that next. Finally got the 1-10 lock. Didn't realize the numbers have to go back into the middle lock. Guess my brain doesn't work like most.

Now I'm at the cement works and have to find the sun rays. I only found 3 and have 5 more to find, but only have 2 minutes. Would hate to have to do this level over OY! (So what'd you do this weekend? Oh me? I played SH online for 28 hours, you?)

Menahune,

Try this solution for the tattoo puzzle:

1. Number all of the tattoo pieces on the left side of the
screen 1 through 24 (starting from top left and going
across)
2. Then, use the following numbered tattoo pieces:
6,10,12,9,14,17,8,23.
3. When you place your last piece from above, you need to WAIT
for about 5 seconds or so before the game registers that you
have the correct pieces in place.

Hope this helps.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 03:27 PM

x2kul, I think that it is not as much as you think - work on the dead person's evidence and look for a link
Then check the knife, time (alibi) and then the suspect. luck

Kem, There are several things to do on this puzzle.
The major thing is watch where the computer makes lines - or look for it.
The aim of the puzzle is to make more squares than the computer. So watch out for 3 lines that will make a square when a fourth line is added.
The computer tricks you while you're adding by making those and filling them when you don't watch.
Also, make smaller sequences so you have ones to give the computer smaller sequence of squares. luck

Thanks tuakka. smile

I'm still girding me loins getting ready to play this game, but I'm totally in awe of you both, ana and MaG and the way you've handled not only playing the game at breakneck speed without a walkthrough yourselves, but remembering the answers to help stranded people into the bargain. And it's all being done with such calmness and grace... It's onto the 19th page already - are you sure you're not going to sneak off to a quiet place and have a sneaky breakdown when page 30 arrives - I know I would. You have surely displayed superb professionalism under pressure.

Fill the 5 unit container with water.

Empty remaining 2 units from 5 unit into the 3 unit beaker.
Fill 5 unit back up and empty into 3 unit, leaving you with 4 units.

welcome djdjo, Is this the water measurement to get 4 units?
If so:
Fill the 5 units flask with water. Click that on the empty 3 units flask. (Now you have 2 units left on the 5 one).
Click the filled 3 units flask on grate to empty it.
Click the left 5 units flask with 2 units on the right 3 unit flask to fill it with 2 units.
Then fill the 5 units with water and click it again on the right unit flask with 2 to add 1 unit.
This leaves 4 units in the left (5) flask.
Use that 4 units on top of the weighing block.

Hello - newbie here and I don't know how to use the "search" here. There are now 14 pages on this fabulously addicting game and I'm trying to find some info on the trick to using the bunsen burner in the Laboratory. I'm on level 4 (?) and have a "greasy substance" which does nothing under the microscope, so obviously I need to use the bunsen burner. I put the thing on that little plate, put the plate on top of the burner but when I try and add "solvent' my screen immediately takes me to the opening shot of Sherlock and Watson in the street. Trying to add "water" does nothing. I don't know how to get the fire lit in the burner or what I'm doing wrong. Help please? And help on searching these pages would be appreciated - tried choosing "casual games" and key word "burner" and "bunsen" since "lab" keeps showing every post by a user with that in their name. Thanks!

Hi Whitney wave

If you are being taken back to the first screen you are clicking too high and the water or solvent is hitting the menu button. I did that countless times. lol

To do the grease or any other substance for the burner, try everything: put the plate on the burner, add grease or makeup etc. add solvent, add water, click down below the plate to light burner and you are done.

You need to be sure that you have all the things in your inventory (pull on the items to be sure they are there) check if there are puzzle pieces or gears that are still gold that you need to use. Drag letters and books etc to the puzzle piece and it will open up to another puzzle.

Go to Scotland yard and be sure to click on three places on the desk to see if you have anything to do.

EDIT: bravo Whitney! We all miss things and click on the wrong stuff...how else would we learn? lol

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 08:44 PM

Thanks Ana! Any hints or where should I go to master the search here? Example - I'm now in the "hall" and since it's taking me to a close up of the Library of books in the corner, all with the AB CD EF on each shelf, i'm sure I'm supposed to be doing something with them. I've done a search through the thread here for "sherlock book" anc chose "casual games" since there's not an option just for this game. What pops up is a bunch of postings, none of which have the word "book" but maybe that word is on the whole page? And there's not an option for all 14 pages to be displayed at one time (doing a "find" would be faster) right? Any help would be appreciated ... or i guess I could just copy each page and post it into a Word doc and conduct my search that way. Ugh ... but better than what I've been doing.

Upsydaisy, 660339 works...there are many ways.
Any number 1-9 twice for the two first digits and them zero works followed by 339.

Whitney, you need to look under the corner of the rug in the library. That will get you going again.
The search will help if you use simple words eg. library, safe, garden etc. There are still dozens of hits for each though. No worries if you sak at this point. I think I have the game memorized by now. lol

masabata welcome to GameBoomers. The two spots with the arrows are Holmes and Da Vinci. Click on the letters in the first set and them click on the letter you want it to be on the second set. stay tuned and I'll put up a screenshot.

EDIT: Finished Letter You need to do the last click from an M to an F that is not completed in my photo.

You need to move the curser over them till you get arrows then you can choose the arrow you want action on.

Hi Browneyed,

I have done that and it is all okay but the message at the bottom starting Mary my star is not exactly the same as your pic. The word but is lat on mine and the word knime is knive on mine and also the word be is le on mine. The rest of the message at the bottom is okay and the middle bit with the names Mozart etc is all okay and spelt correctly so I am not sure how to change the wrong words at the bottom.

**************

Browneyed,

Sorry I was being a bit daft there for a minute and I have sorted it out.

Thanks Masabata

Hi,

Sorry its me again!! I got your pic of vincents letter decoded and I did it, everything is okay except for the part at the bottom of the letter where its says (but leave the KNIFE). Mine says (but leave the KNIME) and so does your pic. In the walkthrough by Mag? is says it is supposed to say KNIFE. I cannot change it to KNIFE as pressing the M to change to F seems to change everything else with that letter. Not sure what to do now. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks! I had actually found that corner of the rug and the clue underneath on my very 1st click but hadn't taken the time to think that it was related to the library! And thanks for such a quick reply!
Posted By: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 10:12 PM

masabata, you should be able to change the M to a F. I could not because I if I did there is no way to take a screenshot then. I did have difficulties once when I was redoing it where things would go helter skelter when I would change a letter. All I can suggest is to get out of the game and go back in and do that puzzle again. That is what I had to do.

Whitney...glad you are moving forward again. bravo

BTW...There is a Walkthrough started on the first post of this thread. It is being created as quickly as MaG can. grin

Thanks to everyone who helped me last night with the tile puzzle- I should know when to quit due to fatigue. I tried it again MaG and it worked perfectly- as I would expect it to since your solutions are always spot-on!

Next question- I am at level 4- Backstage Box
I got all the objects except "Vincent Message"- any hints as to where that little sucker is??

Again- thanks for all your patience and help!

I ran out of time on the last level, trying to figure out whodunit. Didn't realize you have to play the whole thing again grrrr...

Anyway, I'm at the deduction board again finally. I got all the lines green except the bottom horizontal where you have to tie in props from the suspect to other props. I've clicked on each one with each one and can't seem to get the right combination. The opera paper on the left and ribbon on the right are static (I'm assuming as part of the other green lines). Did I miss something? HELPPPPPP!

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 10:19 PM

Donna, are you sure it isn't level 3 - Vincents message? Check the walkthrough on the first post and see if that isn't it.

x2kul...I am impressed that you made it through without having to redo a level before. I think #6 at least 8 times. lol
Here is a screenshot of a completed deduction board. Do not click if you don't want the spoiler. Final Suspect completed.

Hi there,
I don't understand why can I move on from level 4, I've decoded vincents message (message:Mary,my star,let's meet at my place tonight,but leave the knime lord lindon pays well-i will be rich.vincent or solved names: mozart, cervantes, shakespeare, holmes, da vinci, conan doyle, washington, voltaire) but my puzzle remains unsolved. I think that has to do with 3 letters in alphabet that are unused to solve the puzzle.
I'm sure it's a simple problem, but game made me so nervous,I can not think or random clic anymore :/



Posted By: Donnakaren

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 10:24 PM

No- I am on level four. I know there was a message on level 3 as well, but this is a required find in the room with the wigs, fake knife, etc.

Re: Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet Hints and Help Thread - 05/11/08 10:29 PM

Carol,

Every digit 0123456789 must be used once. I put them in order. If any were right, I'd up the value of the wrong (red) ones once, but making adjustments if doing that would use a green #. Make sure no #s are repeated. (I didn't use the 1234512345 approach). I had to do it a few times myself, since it's so random. I'll try it now, since I'm stuck at the end and awaiting a spoiler. will brb.

Donna, did you put the head gear on the corresponding wigs?

welcome to GameBoomers Minooka, it's a random puzle so I am afraid it is trial and error. When you put the numbers in, you are making sure not to move the ones that are green and not do any duplicate numbers that are green right?

Laura, did you see my spoiler to you up above?

NYLady, are you sure that every letter is correct? If youn are using my screenshot you have to change the M to F.

minooka, I am afraid since it is random, all I can suggest is some kind of system that you are not wasting moves. That is why I did my 0-9 method, it works for me 9 out of ten times.

Hi Tigre,

Sorry, I missed your message. Am about to try it. Printed it out, since I don't know what I did wrong.

BTW Carol, I played that game at least 6 times. Half I couldn't finish in 5, the others I could, but the codes do seem totally random. If you put in a solution I got and it doesn't work, you wasted a try, but here's what I got:

6437958201
1843069572
9426583071

It's letter perfect to the wt of MaG's
Should something happen or do I just manually leave the scene?

I hate the timer... it would be so much more enjoyable if it didn't have that.

I downloaded the guide but it doesn't really help with these type of issues.

I just started the puzzle over and this time it came up with the word knije. It let me change the j to F without changing everything else. The problem before was the word Knime as the middle section has two m's in it and when I tried to change the letter m to f it changed all the other m's like Mozart and holmes. Anyway it has worked now as there was no letter J in the middle section of vincent's letter.

Thanks anyway

Tumbler Puzzle.
5 spaces to make them 1-10. I have a serie of 7-8-9-10, then 1-2 and 3-4-5-6 in 3 slots. The 1-2 are in the middle slot. My idea was to move the 5 and 6 to an empty slot , then put the 6 on the 5. Followed by the 4 to the one remaining empty slot, so the 3 and 4 can move to the middleslot with the 1-2... but... no way. The 6 will not go on top of the 5... Any suggestions?
