Title: Hints and tips
Post by: jeancallisti on January 03, 2020, 11:18:19 pm
If you didn't get the steam puzzle, this is where you ask for some (not-too-obvious) hints  :hat:

Hello,

thank you for the demo! Playing it, it awakens the feelings I had when playing the original games.

However, I'm stuck very early on and I'm not sure if it is just me or a technical bug. I have tried everything - but nothing works.

I'm in the church: I have everything: The broom stick, the chewing gum, the bucket, the long rudder. I have filled the basin, lit the oil lamp.

I could imagine that the next step is to play the "horn" (stone) which is placed at the right in the church. And I can imagine that you use the stick. But Indy wouldn't do it. I also realize that there are some musical notes at the top inside the church. It is also strange that I have to click "Use" twice (and Indy always says "I can't use it") before "Use ... with" appears.

It's frustrating: I have tried everything with everything - also in the mountain. Nothing works...

Help would be very much appreciated!

@Indy1960 Have you been at the harbour?

I - on the other hand - need help with the steam puzzle. I am clearly missing an indicator if I doing something right. I activated 4 and can't get the last one.

@Indy1960

Hi, here's a couple hints and a solution.

Hint 1

Have you explored the harbour good enough? Have a feeling you might have missed something there.


Hint 2

There seems to be someone in the one of the boats.


Solution

Use Talk to on  the small boat/ship. :)

@pali

Hint:

You don't need the last one. There's a clue above the church's door.

Oh wow. My monitor was to dark so that I couldn't see the carvings up there. And I was running back and forth the cave and the church for ages. :D

Hello! Would it be possible to help me with the shield positionning puzzle please? I have read the inscription in the metal door but it is still not clear how the shields need to be positionned. Or perhaps I miss another clue? Thank you  :)

Apparently several people had issues related to the darkness of their display.
I'll think of a better way for version 1.1.

I'm having trouble in Norway. I only have the shovel head, gum, lamp, lighter and oar. I have spoken to the fisherman and helped him fix his boat but stuck with what to do next.
Thanks

@Dr Redstone, can you be more specific ? Where exactly have you trouble ?

@ Dr Redstone

Hint 1
Try to discuss with fisherman every topic is available

Hint 2
Pay attention to his last song

Hint 3
Keep in mind fishermans last song. There is something you should do inside the church !
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: Cassiebsg on January 06, 2020, 11:40:13 am
@Tremulas, he's not there yet.

Hint 1
Have you read the note?


Hint 2
Can you think of a cross in the church?


Hint 3
Have you looked at the paintings?


Solution
One of the paintings shows the crucifixion of Christ. Pick it up.

Hi ... I'm also stuck on the shield positioning puzzle.

I don't know how to make "hints" to hide my descriptions... so I just removed all my original comments :)

The solution already provided does not work for me ... I don't see any ice on the right side of the metal door ...

Post by: Cassiebsg on January 06, 2020, 04:44:08 pm
Could you please edit your message and add spoiler tags to what you have and have done? You risk spoiling some puzzles for people. :)

As for your queston is already answered here by pali: http://binarylegends.net/forum/index.php/topic,976.msg8368.html#msg8368

I got a little bit further , but still stuck !

Looks like I have the shields aligned correctly
spoiler: Indy mentions they work like a wave,
and also the steam puzzle seems correct
spoiler: The holes in the wall sound like POOOO POOOO POOOO
but the font with sea water may be lacking something ?
The clue mentions
spoiler: morning mist ,
but not sure if the font with sea water needs anything else ?

Have you read everything on the metal door?

Hint 2
There are three runes.

Also what is everything you have in your inventory?
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: Cassiebsg on January 07, 2020, 06:28:25 pm
Hint 3 : Very spoilery
Each rune = one stone.
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: maikelnait on January 08, 2020, 12:55:09 am
In my inventory I only have two jewels, red and blue.
I see we can insert gems in the dragon forehead, left and right eyes...
I tried every combination with the two jewels, but I guess I'm missing a third jewel ?
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: Cassiebsg on January 08, 2020, 01:05:15 am
Yes you are.

Hint 1
Remember the runes? There's 3? You already have 2, what color should the last one be?

Hint 2
Okay, yellow... Seen any one yellow round stone around? It's hidden in plain sight. :)

Hint 3
Go to the cave, and look up... What pretty yellow stone that head has on it's mouth.

Solution
Use the oar to get the yellow stone. (see hint 3 if you dive straight to the solution]
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: maikelnait on January 08, 2020, 09:59:56 am
OMG ... I was wondering how & when to use the oar ... now I get it .... fantastic demo !!!
It really resembles the good & old Lucasarts style & flavor

Amazing job ... let's hope to see the full game anytime soon !

Hi guys,

I have solved all clues so far in the church in Norway. Unfortunately I do only have one (yellow) rune. I am unable to locate the red(?) and blue(?) one. I have searched the whole place but still seem to miss something.

Thanks a lot

@2 gems

Here's some clues about that: http://binarylegends.net/forum/index.php/topic,976.msg8391.html#msg8391

Solution:
Push the lock in the church 3 times.

Hey Cassiebsg: Thanks for your reply, unfortunately this is not working in my case. Very strange... Could this be a bug?

See picture...

Have you done what Tremulas said on his post?

http://binarylegends.net/forum/index.php/topic,976.msg8391.html#msg8391

Probably a condition for it to work.

Ha! The only part i was missing ;) The last song.

Thanks mate!

Best a.

Post by: ark333 on January 11, 2020, 09:27:50 pm
I had the demo 99% completed, only missing the chewing gum, so the song could play correctly. Turns out the only place I was NOT looking at is where the damned chewing gum was.

Hello!

I'm playing the new version and I'm stuck in the first puzzle  :-[


I've read my book and checked the glass...the scroll says:

The Verb has one
The Soul has two
The last one has two

The one in the glass is St John

In the book, the hint by St John is "You choose that number for the soul? that is one too many" so I suppose that I have to substract one from the Soul:

The Verb has one
The Soul has two one
The last one has two

So I suppose that I have to push one skull on the Verb, one of the soul and two in the last one...but I have tried that combination in all three possiblities with no luck. Not sure of which drawing is each Verb, Soul and last one, but I have tried all combinations.



Am I missing something?

PD: Thanks for the amazing game!
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: jeancallisti on December 18, 2020, 04:45:25 pm
Yes, you're missing something!
Once you're sure of the combination, you have to push a button somewhere in the room ;)

Post by: Orion80 on December 18, 2020, 05:12:52 pm
Ok, found! thanks, haven't seen it before...well, free path to the rest of the adventure!
