I feel your pain! I have been over it and over it so many times, I too can not get the right code to work. Hopefully someone will come to our rescue!

Hey there Fishies,

It may help to use the Advanced Forum Search under the Search All Forums. From here, you can search through the Game Forum by choosing a specific game and typing a keyword like "cannon" and all of the posts with “cannon” will come up!

Hope this helps!

I'd search "cannon and map" or "cannons in swamp" because there are also posts about another cannon. This might help weed those out.

This took me almost forever to figure out, but you need to use the map and the paper bits you find in the mansion to get the cannon code's. It's a bit awkward to explain without pictures, but I'll try my best.

First, you need to receive ALL the square scraps of paper for the treasure map (by completing the three puzzles behind the picture, the clock, and the piano) and the map you received at the beginning. If you don't have them all, you can backtrack to the mansion and solve all the puzzles to receive them.

Now, onto raising the cannons. Along the top, left, and right margins of the map are the 3 symbols on the cannons. Between each pair of symbols are the pictures you received from solving the puzzles in the mansion. Each picture corresponds to an area on the main map. For example, let's say a square in the top margin is the top of the compass. On the main map, if you look at the top of the compass, it'll have a tiny Roman numeral code against it, let's say 'XXXIIV'. You'll notice all the cannons have X, I, and V buttons. You must hit those keys in order of the numeral code you found (in this case, you hit X, X, X, I, I, then V) and the code will lock in. Keep this up for each picture and the cannon will rise.

You MUST follow the picture clues from left to right for the top margin and top to bottom for the sides and put the numerals in the order they appear in. If you do not, you must restart from the first again.

It's awkward to explain without pictures, but I hope this helps.

Felt the same and almost gave up. I just did it the old fashioned way of trial and error. I would work one series of numbers til the buttons depressed. Here is what I got hope it helps for someone.
1st cannon XXVII-XXII-XVI-XXXIV-XXXVI-XI
swamp shack cannon- XIII-XXXVII-XIV-XVII-XXVIII-XXXI
swamp cannon- XV-III-VIII-X-XXXIII-XXX

It won't help. Cannon solutions are random and change from game to game.

Again, this is worthless. This is a randomly generated series of numbers. It is different from game to game and player to player. What worked for you will NOT work for anyone else.
