Have you gone back to the hotel and broken the thermometer and put the mercury in the glass vial?

The last two video tapes won't be found until after you cross the icy bridge.

There are 4 columns and 4 rows on the grid on your crime computer where the videos are stored after you find them. Look at that grid and note the position of each of the 4 shapes that you have found. Note which row and column they are in on the crime computer grid.

Then go to the ruins and you will see the 4 column slots and round stone disks on the walls around the column slots. The object is to put the 4 shapes that you have found into the same positions that they are on the crime computer grid. To do this you can use the round stone disks to fill in the spaces in the column slots as needed in order to position the 4 shapes in the right spots.

I've tried both ways to unlock the gate to the tunnel but placement of the relics do not work. I've tried the book way and the walkthrough way. The walkthrough has the square and circle relic reversed. So far as I can see both are wrong. I've checked and doublechecked the placements and can't get it to work, Hope someone can help. I'm freezing to death out here.

If you are asking for help with this part, please see the post above yours by Lizzie K. She has given specific directions already. This is a random puzzle so you can't follow the walkthrough.

It's the item from the candy machine. If you didn't get the three coins, you need to head back and do some more looking. 2 are found in HOG scenes and one is behind a fence in the graveyard. You also need an item from another HOG scene to get that coin. It sounds like you just need to go back over all the areas looking for HOGs. Sometimes there is a second HOG scene that will come up in previously visited areas.

Loved this game & just finished it without using any hints or strategy guides. I'm sooo proud! However, I still have the snowshoes in my inventory. Did I miss something?

NWL43, Thanks for the advice. I went back and went through every single room and building, back up the tree, the works. I cant seem to find anything else. Oh well. Thanks anyway!!!

I was getting ready to post and ask that very thing. Several posters have been surprised that they missed the gift shop. Glad you finished. Way to hang in there.

I just finished the game too and also have snowshoes still in my inventory. Guess we didn't need them after all or we missed something along the way that wasn't too important to the game.

Well, it's taken me a whole week to go through the game from start to finish without using hints, and completing all the puzzles. (If I get anything wrong or have to skip puzzles or lose my way .. I just have to to start again) .. and I was finally in the room beyond the portal with the remains of the banshee thing, and I'd completed all the riddles.
I was ALMOST there.

EXCEPT I didn't realise there were FIVE rooms and I didn't know what on earth to do with the vial of mercury (or the snowshoes .. what WERE they for??). So I retraced all my steps over and over again, trying to figure out what I'd missed. I was totally stuck for hours.

In the end, I'd had enough, and went to exit the game. And the currsor froze .. and there was this awful whirry sound, and then my computer crashed.

I rebooted, went to play the final scene again .. and all my progress had been wiped out (something about the profile watsit being corrupted).

SO .. I've got to uninstall the game and reinstall it again.

AAAARRRRGGGHHHHH!

Have you actually filled the vial with mercury. Think thermometer.
