Hi rrobinson7,

It is strange that the Hint button does not show you any hint. Anyway, did you decode the secret message?

hmmm, which secret message? have disposed of all inventory items except a single crystal. cannot figure out where to go now.
The hint button only works in time travel rooms...does not provide any hints at all

Couldn't work the decoder in the lab. Hit the Skip button. Got no message. What did I miss?

ok made it to the island and started gathering more stuff...
this game is strange
if i quit and come back, more HOPs are available. The hint now works in HOPs, but not in the game.
maybe it is the mac version?
making progress, but very perplexing

Hi rrobinson7:

SPOILER ALERT:

I'll try to help you. Since you have the Blue Crystal and have cleaned the spyglass, you need to do the following:

Have you been to the Gazebo and gotten a "KNOB"? If not, do the following:
Go to the Gazebo, play HOS and get Knob.
Go Down 2x and left to the Maze Statue, then forward to the Maze Fountain
Click on the Drain area; place the KNOB, the fountain will fill, take the Capsule
Go Down 4x to the Foyer -- go left into the hall and into the Dr. Ofc.

Dr. Ofc
Click on the Table, click on the Note Book and place the Capsule on the Notebook; play mini game and get Maze-Map Directions (they will go into your journal).


After cleaning the Telescope:
Go left to the Boat House
Play HOS and get a Gas Can
Go down 3x, go right into Gazebo

Gazebo:
Play HOS and get Red Wire
Go down 4x to Foyer and enter Left hall and go into Kitchen.

Kitchen--through Sea Balcony:
Play HOS get Funnel
Go down 2x to Foyer and up stairs enter Right Door; go into Past and play HOS get Tiny Key
Go to Present
exit that room and enter other door; play HOS get Hose
exit that room and go back to the Foyer; enter right Hall and enter 2nd door into Parlor (room where fireplace is), click on the Clock and use the Tiny Key to open the clock; take the Alligator Clip
exit that room and go out the the Window Door, go straight to the sea balcony to the Boat House

Boat House;
Click on Motor
Place wire, alligator clip, funnel, hose and add gas
Go forward to Island


This should get you going again.

Edited to add: The Blue Crystal is not used until the end of the game.

@rrobinson7:
The hint should work in ALL HO scenes. The only issue is that on Mac the Hint does not work in the Adventure way (it was initially designed) but there is an updated version on the way which will fix this.

thanks very much for the help...i do like the game, not for anyone in a hurry, but addictive.
i did manage to make it to the island and pick up sulfur, scissors, a lamp, matches, blue gem, a saw, and 2 small keys.
have wandered thru every scene, but nothing fits and no more HOS.
got a clue for me?

Hi rrobinson7:

SPOILER ALERT:

Just to get you going again.

Enter the Cemetery Gates and go forward.

You need Boards to cross the water to the Monastery. You get the boards at the Pier (where you first landed on the island).

You need 3 round Sapphires that you will place into the Monastery Door, once you cross the river.

Enter the Monastery--need dynamite to remove rock pile.
Go left -- click on the back wall -- need Runes
Click on the floor grate -- take instructions on Dynamite making; note cross below grate; you will have to come back and get that,
Go forward 6x to Chapel

Chapel
Play HOS - get fuse
Go back 3x to Beach and play another HOS to get a Magnet.

Hut:
Play HOS and get Dynamite Tube
Click on table and Make Dynamite

Hope this gets you going again.

I'm about where you were here, except I can't find the handkerchief to clean the spyglass. Can you help me with that?
