I am having the same problem... I need to build the ladder, but can not find the nails (I have everything else to build the ladder). I have been back through the entire puzzle looking for clues, but there is nothing. Anyone have a solution?

The nails should be found in a HOG near the gate to the entrance of the rooms/pool/ziggurat section. The sparklies should be in the lower right of your screen.

Hi LadyN! Here are SPOILERS for the settings for the dials for the sat phone/radio. Please highlight with your cursor to read:

On the calendar -> 406 MHZ
On the yellow post it note on bulletin board -> T-3
On the book on yacht -> Amsat Oscar 40

Enter the numbers in that order, then click on the microphone.

Hope this helps!

Hi petuniazee! The "marble chest" is the male statue on the right. The cask is actually a stack of casks (barrels).

Re: the nails - there must be a software issue... I completed the HOG, but did not get nails.

Hey garynsharon! It should be the second HOG there, I think in the first HOG the nails are on your list, but you don't keep them.

Hi BrandNewDay! Here are the locations of all the bells (highlight with your cursor to read) SPOILERS:

2 bells on dock where you arrive
1 on cat to right of dock
4 in Tantalus courtyard
1 @ gate with dead Miles
2 in courtyard outside your room
1 in room on dresser
1 in room in HOG in suitcase


Hope this helps! Good luck!

Hi all,

Love this game, but I'm having difficulty finding all three rings. I found the one in the closet and then there was one in the scene where the puzzle is. Any clues?

Thanks!

Need some help with the satellite dial. Got the first one (MHz) and the second one but can't get the third - tried everything and it didn't work. Any help with the setting for the right hand dial?

Go back up this page to about the 9th post before yours. WilJul has told you exactly how to solve this puzzle in that post to another person having the same problem as yours.

Wiljul, thanks. I figured out how to skip with the button. Got no place to go though. All I have left is the sail on the yacht and can't figure that one out. When I hit the hint button it highlights the chain. Yeah, I know I need to fix it but don't know how.

Guess I will start over with another name.

I have found the sat phone, found the key, found the missing dial, and turned on the power.

When I try to input the settings, I choose the correct MHz and satellite, but every setting I enter for the second dial does nothing.

I was able to ALMOST complete this game without a walkthrough. For those who are waiting for one, it really is not that difficult without one.

This is a wonderful game.

Did you look at the yellow post-it on the bulletin board? It tells you what number to set the center dial to.

Hey Im having problems getting the nails for the ladder. Have been though the puzzle and have no hidden object scenes to complete and also the map shows no areas with puzzles left. I have been back to the entrance to the room/pool and still have no hidden object scene to do. Really stuck and would love some help.
Thanks in advance

Sorry - I should clarify. I completed BOTH HOG...still no nails. In addition, there is not a yellow dot anywhere on the map to indicate that there are things to do in that area. That is why I question there being a software issue. I am using the Mac version of the game. I played the free trial and then purchased the game. Not sure if this is relevant information.

Thank You

my map only has gray dots and white, no yellow. Each area says "nothing to do here go somewhere else" but nowhere to go, no yellow. No nails and need to build ladder. Is game stalled, should I start over?
