Part 1, Ch. 5 -- Secrets

[Post New]by ScandalousEscort on Dec 29, 13 1:45 AM
Boy-oh-boy, am I getting tired of this fruitless, frustrating, fuffing, fracking easter-egg hunt!

Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a little OCD when it comes to uncovering every secret in each and every chapter. I'm so frustrated because if the game states that there are x-number of secrets to find, then there should be x-number secrets to flipping find!!!
Sorry, fishies, for ranting... just... ....Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaghhhhhh!

Chapter 5 says 19 secrets to locate. I went through it with a fine-toothed comb. I found 18. Anyone with a different result? Or, is this another glitch like in Ch. 3?

I adore this series. Have since it first came out on BFG. I'm playing relaxed mode to scope out the land and find everything. However, I don't feel too relaxed at the moment. Yeah, let's play every chapter twice--eh?

Any word on an update for fiddly glitches?

(edit to correct numbers as per filhill.)

Ok, hopefully you didn't read my previous reply to this as it was incorrect. Firstly, it has 19 secrets, not 18, so I hope you're talking about the same level.

Secondly, I have now found all 19 secrets on this level now (took me about five attempts, but I got there in the end). If you're missing one, then I'm pretty sure I know which one it will be as it is really hard to find. In the northern indian village, where there are lots of people and several altars and you get the quest to light the fire etc, out in the open, on the right hand side just near a tent/lean-to, there is a small tablet sitting on the ground. It's the same type of secret that caught me in the very first chapter and one of the others as they are hard to see and are not obvious secrets.

Let me know if this isn't the right secret or you're actually talking about a different level

Thanks Fihill!!

Yep, almost under the awning, I thought; and boy, was it hard to see!

Thanks, again.

(Oh, and it was 19.)

I found the secret you are talking about, near the awning. I am still at 18... I think I am missing one from the treasure map, from the second village, to the northwest. Any suggestions? I click the ground over and over where the X is on the map... nothing

Hi Kirsten, unfortunately it's too hard to know what you have missed and I can't go back into the level to have a look once I've finished, so I've re-played it several times already to answer other people's questions. The only other secrets I can think of that I missed first time around were a couple of bushes in that same village where the tablet near the awning is. There's one to the se of that awning and there's one up to the nw near the altars and the single indian. There is also one when you go through the green teleporter to the raised area to the east in the bushes outside the entrance to the caves. There is also one, possibly two inside the caves. I'm afraid I'm getting the chapters mixed up a bit so I'm being quite vague, I do apologise.

If you're really stuck you can try watching the video walkthrough on you tube or let me know and I'll go through the level again and write them all down exactly where they are (which I should have done last time if I'd had any sense).

My apologies, I hope this helps you, but do let me know if you're still stuck

Also the youtube video has only 18 found, the comments under it are about the treasure map and finding something where the X is - The maker of the video cannot find it, and I can't either

Hi Kirsten, I definitely got the 19 in ch 5 so they are there. Check out the new post by ScandlousEscort who has listed all the secrets in the first part of the book. That should help you out.

Yeah, IIRC, the treasure map is supposed to lead you to the secret that's buried in the sand behind the survivor's cage... BUT it doesn't doesn't always spawn and isn't there in some modes (wasn't there in Easy, but was in Regular).

The missing 19th clue to the treasure
map did appear in the normal mode but not in the hard mode. Have replayed this a few times and can't find another clue. Very frustrating!!
