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  :)

Look to the right of the metal door.

Hint 4
The ice to the right got a crack.

Solution
Use the shovel with the ice.

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 ?

Sorry. Hover over my message. I did where I was up to as a 'spoiler'. Thanks
Title: Re: Hints and tips
Post by: Tremulas on January 06, 2020, 11:29:08 am
@ 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!

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.
