The same thing happened at Rose's Coffin. Any ideas on how to fix the problem? I am reading alot of fish out here have reinstalled---some with not so good luck. How many in the pond have experienced the same thing? How do I proceed?

Thanks


i also froze at victors, but was able to go back in. Not like the twins area. Get out of the game and go back in. My video started right up. I hope this works


Thank you. that did work. Now I am stuck at the last puzzle. How in the world do you get 1-17 to line up?


You're very welcome!

On the number puzzle, remember that there are an odd number of tiles. If you get to one that is off by one space, you have to move it all the way around the circle.

Hope this helps.



Not really, sorry. So if I have to move a # all the way around--it has to be either on the left or right? Should I stay moving right or left instead of changing back and forth? Don't quite get it. Must be a numb head.



Wow! I finally did it. But as soon as I got the 1-17 lined up my computer froze. Are there alot of glitches in this game? Thanks to all the pond residents who helped. My first time in the forums and I loved it. Well I will be playing again under someone else. I would like to go through without skipping puzzles.

Go back out and walk through all areas again. Even the garden. Hidden object Sparkles pop up kinda random all over (even where they weren't before!!)

The last typewriter key is the R. Many people have had a glitch and can't get the R if the video of the twins at their coffin didn't run. After you solved the 3 gargoyle puzzles did you see the twin girls ghosts come out of the coffin and talk to you? If you didn't then you may have to start over as a new player. That is what many people have had to do.

Where is the gas for the tram????


If you have an empty jar in your inventory, try the leaky barrel in the school house basement.

It's 2.20 in the morning here in Australia, so it's time to go to bed. Happy gaming!!!


The tram is later on in the game when you go through the third door with the typewriter. Don't worry you have plenty of time and much fun ahead!!


where's the fuel for the tram?????

In the cellar of the schoolhouse is a huget petrol tank that is dripping. That's where the gas is.

June, welcome to the Fish Pond. When you exit the tram there will be a sparkly HO area to resolve. When you come to the stairs, use the chisel on the steps to see a pattern for a puzzle you'll need shortly. Then proceed up the stairs. Good Luck

RE: phone wires in the basement of the work shop

Welcome to the pond . . . let me see if I can help you. The secret I followed from a much earlier post is that you start where the first light is . . . you the second light you touch is the third one from the left and then systematically move COUNTER-CLOCKWISE. Remember that you cannot cross a wire that is already lit because then you will cause the circuit to overload and have to start again. If all else fails PM me and I'll sent you Lizzie K's photobucket with pictures of the puzzle solutions.

I think I posted this question in the wrong room earlier. I am in Victors cottage (room w/fireplace) & Victor is not there this time. The door to the left has a puzzle lock w/skulls. I have no idea how to proceed. The only item in my inventory is a heart locket. I can't find a clue for the skull lock. I have rewalked the whole game twice and no more HO or sparkles. Help please!

Hi Sept4me- welcome to the forums!

Go upstairs and look at the framed document. Use your cloth to clean it and you will find the sequence for the skull lock.

Thanks for the help. I had already cleaned the framed document and totally missed the clues.
