Title: Far Corners of the World
Post by: Cogliostro on 01 Sep 2011, 20:11

Okay, can I get a hint about getting the doctors to stop talking about golf?

I've already kluged together the GPS coordinates, though using those on the map or anyone at the museum will NOT let me figure out where those cooridnates point to.

ok to get the Doctors to stop talking is multi layered puzzle So I suppose I will go step by step

     

1.
First you have to know the Doctors' names so look at both doctors.  One is Doc Hart the other is Doc Miller.

2.
Then you need to have the Nurse page Doctor Miller.  I think you have to go through some dialog to get to it.  But of course, she won't do it with out having you do a favor for her.

3.
The nurse wants you to get the lotto numbers for her.  She says they usually show them on TV.  So you need to gain access to the tv.  to do that you need to distract the guy watching the TV with the magazine from your sisters room.

4.
Make sure to have a pen and paper ready, becuase this is your only chance to get the lotto numbers.  Once you have them go tell the Nurse and she will page the Doc.... Success.... NOOOOO of course the Intercom is busted.

5.
if you are to lazy to write it down the lotto numbers are 17 26 35 37 40 48.  I am not sure if you can give her the answer without having seen the tv show the numbers.

6.
I spent a good hour or two thinking ok well obviously I need to fix the intercom, but that is not the answer.  So what you need to do is have the Nurse announce it again this time you can stay in the room while she does it.  So what you need to do is record her with your phone as she says it.

7.
Once you have gotten that far it should be fairly simple.  Place the phone some place by the intercom where it can be hidden and give yourself a call using the payphone

Sorry probably more then just a hint I know when I am playing an advenuter game all I need is a little nugget of info to proceed.

Okay, trying to break into Club Morello.

Read the newspaper clipping, have one full date, and a year.  Tried all combinations, using the UK and American formats.  None of those dates work on the keypad.

I assume you have already gone through the front door?

If not here is how you get into the front door:

You have to have Gwen's Pass... The Chewing Gum... the Cutters...and Your ID

How to get the Items Listed above

1.
Gwen's Pass- which I think you need just to find the club, but if not here you go.  Gwen's Pass is in the flat so you have to get back into there to do that talk to the nosy neighbor upstairs who tells you that your Sis hid a key find the loose tile and use the tweezers to fish the key out.  Now you can open the door and and Gwen's Pass is sitting on the table.

2.
The Chewing Gum- Go to the airport and talk to the Tourists from Texas.  After you arange the deal of trading them something for the Gum.  Talk to them again, and they will give you the gum... that puzzle kinda frustrated me becuase why didn't they just give you the gum in the first place?  Anyway then you need to use the Gum on you self to get a piece of chewed Gum.

3.
The Cutter- Go to the park and see the janitor from the hospital is on his break.  You can then go back and get his Cutter from the unattended toolbox.

4
Your ID- It is in your wallet but you should already have it cuase I think you had to show it to the noisy neighbor upstairs.

Now if you need further help with what to do with the front door...
You might have to hand the bouncer Gwen's ID first that is what I did.  So then the Bouncer rejects it and you have to use the cutters on your ID to get the picture of yourself then use the chewed gum on the photo of yourself finally use the photo of yourself on the pass...tada you have got a fake ID... course I think that guy would lose his job who would fall for a photo stuck onto an ID with bubble gum (well thank goodness he is pretty thick.)


Ok After all that IF you only need help getting in the Back door here it is...

I don't know that the News Clipping has any point maybe a red herring, not sure.  To Open the Back Door you need a Seven digit Code, so you need to find a string of Seven Digits.  Anyway If you talked to your wife after the first meeting after the airport, she tells you she is good with numbers.  If you notice the arcade machine in the bar has a hiscore menu but the actual game has no score.  That is certainly odd? And the scores are in a weird format...Now I am sure that there is some way to get the correct number out of the list of ten scores but I am no math whiz, so the easiest thing to do is take a picture with your cell phone of the hiscore screen.  Then go to the Hosptial and talk to your wife or fiance? show her the phone.  She will ask if you want to know the number you are looking for. If you say yes she will tell you if you say no she lets you figure it out for yourself. I just say yes... I am not sure if this effects the score or not.

Post by: Dervish on 02 Sep 2011, 05:08
sorry for the second post but I have a seperate question.

Ok, I have my own question...
I am in the Park and trying to wake the dog up.  How do I wake him up?

 I have used the hotdog under the couples bench, and fed the birds up to the point where they are close to the dog.  I try to wake the dog up and that old lady keeps yelling at me to leave her dog alone... so what do I need to do to the dog or to the lady to get that Dog movin?


Nevermind I figured it out....all I can say is DOH!!!!

The golden disk is laid out at the apartment.  I got the magnifying glass and used it on the mountain.  I've tried every logical combination I could think of.  Then ran every variation on the inner two rings.  Nothing.

What do I do now?

The golden disk is laid out at the apartment.  I got the magnifying glass and used it on the mountain.  I've tried every combination I could think of.  Then ran every variation on the inner two rings.  Nothing.  

Now what?


Did you look up the symbol you saw through the magnifying glass in Suzie's book? Any ideas what that could mean in respect to the painting?

In short
you need to take a look at the back of the canvas!

Oh, and one note about the lottery numbers... I saw that problem mentioned a few times, but
even if you don't catch the numbers the first time, you can still get them later, by simply looking at the TV - they are displayed at the bottom of the screen until you have solved that puzzle.
Title: Re: Far Corners of the World
Post by: Cogliostro on 02 Sep 2011, 21:21
Okay, new problem

Trying to get the "tile" out of the sewers.  The hooded-person is in EVERY room trying to stop me.  I've wandered aimlessly trying to get back to the room, and got nowhere with that.  So I tried to set a trap, something that might knock him off a bridge and into the sewage when he chases me.  But nothing works on the bridges and nothing works on him.   

BTW Thanks for the hint about the painting.  When I couldn't turn the painting around, I thought I was on the wrong track.

 - Cogliostro

EDIT:

Now that's more like it.  I post the request for information and solve the problems two minutes later.

For those of you looking for the clue... there's only one thing in the whole sewer you can pick up.  You better bring it along.

My inventory: Cell Phone, wallet, tweezers, photo of sister, ID, bread, cleaner, brush, cordon, pencil.

I have the hospital, museum, and sister's place. I'm at the point where the doctors are still talking, the sister wants money but I don't know my ATM pin, and I assume I have to get that giant bird in the museum to fall but I can't reach the ropes.

never mind you had to use the phone to get the PIN. I thought I tried that before like 5 times and it did nothing...oh well. Maybe you have to use it on the screen with the ATM

I'm still stuck:

I got the coordinates on the paper but I don't know where to find the GPS. I guessed to use the phone (well, my iPhone has a GPS so it made sense...lol) but that doesn't work.

Any hints..?

Stuck again in a number of dead ends:

1)
I have NO idea where to find chocolate for the girl in the park. I'm guessing I have to get chocolate cake for the tourists in exchange and I see the cake on the fire escape but no way up there..
2)
The woman in the souvenir shop says she wants "something special" for the magnifying glass. I wish she would be more specific...

Thanks!

Here's a series of hints, followed by the out and out solution.

CAKE HINTS)
Your right, get the cake to the tourists and get candy in exchange.


You cannot get up to the cake.


Don't worry about the cake being in edible condition when you get it down.


There's something you need from the monument in the park.


SOLUTION IS NEXT


Grab the stones from the park, throw them at the cake, give it back to the bartender.


MAGNIFYING GLASS HINT)
When you talk to her she doesn't give you any hints.  So where are you going to get your hints?


Most of the stuff in the store is for sale.  She put up exactly one things of her own.


The girl's a fan of the DustBusters and has one of their posters on the counter.


Have you met anyone from the band recently?



SOLUTION IS NEXT



The drunk at the bar is in the band.  Go get his autograph.

NEXT IMPORTNANT HINT)
You need an autographed photo from DustBuster


Buy the drunk a drink in exchange for his autograph.  Oops he forgets the deal.


Of course, the autographed photo is already on him.


It's in his jacket... and you're not a pickpocket.  You need him to take his jacket off.


I think I'll let you sweat this one out for a bit.



SOLUTION IS NEXT



With his jacket on, buy him the drink.  Then head into the basement.  Turn the heat up in the bar to WARM.  Go back into the bar, the jacket will be on the seat next to him.

It seems like a bit of a glitch, but:

when I got to the guitarist he already had his jacket off because I had been messing with the controls already. You can't get the autograph from him unless he is wearing the jacket when you ask him for the autograph and THEN make him remove it

I'm onto the next part of the game and stuck again but I'll keep trying till I give up again!

There's actually an easy solution for that:
you can set the clima control to COLD again, then the gituarist will put on his jacket again.

Yes, that's how I solved it. But I still consider it a bit of a glitch because logically you shouldn't have to if
the jacket is already off.

Ah, ok!
Did you already have the conversation about the autograph BEFORE you set the clima to high? Since it is during that conversation that the guy gives the autograph and puts in his jacket.
If so, then it is indeed a glitch. I will look into it tonight!

I assume they somehow point to the corresponding symbols in the 1, 2, and 3 indentations which in turn are found in the book but after struggling here I don't know where to start

If someone has even a small clue I would appreciate it.

Shadow,

In order to open the STONE chest...
Each of the three circles/spots is labeled with a number of dots.  Now go back and look at Suzie's symbol book.


The book is divided into three sections as well.


SOLUTON NEXT


For button/circle/spot ONE select the symbol that is not listed in category ONE.  Each button/circle/spot includes a symbol that does not belong.

You're going to need a drachma - a Greek coin.

Fortunately there's one nearby

In the sewer just outside the bar, the item sparling behind the sewer grate is the coin you need.

If you try to climb up the fire escape in the back of the bar, you'll end up with a long slender pole.

That fits through the sewer grate, but there's no way to make the coin stick to the pole.

COMPLETE SOLUTION IS NEXT

Use the gum from the tourists on the airport on yourself.  You'll end with a wad of gum.  STick that to the end of the pole, and use that on the sewer grate to get the coin.

MDM2968,

which symbols in which order to press on the owl casket.
I've listed a couple of hints with breaks in between so you can be choosey about how much help you want.

The park bench told you to open the owl.  The bit of graffitti showed an infinity symbol being the key to the owl.  Where have you seen an infinity symbol?

It was near the park bench.

The riddle on the monument tells you the order to press the button in order to open the owl.

Of course, you need to be able to read Chinese numerals.

The open book in the professor's office tells you what all the symbols stand for.

Solving the riddle on the monument is just good brain exercise, but if math isn't your thing, use the camera, take a photo and show it to Tiffany.

How to clean the monument...

First, there's something in your sister's hospital room that you need.

There's also something in the main gallery of the museum.

EXACT SOLUTION IS NEXT

Get the industrial cleaner from your sister's medicine cabinet and the scrub brush from the bucket underneath the egyptology display.  Hit the monument with cleaner and then scrub it.

The bartender's wife cooked up the cake.  So, I'm pretty sure you need to talk to him as well.

I am still stuck trying to figure out:

which buttons to press in which order on the owl. I have the book of chinese and I took the picture of the riddle and showed it the the fiance in the hospital room and she gave me some numbers, but I can't figure out exactly how to put them into the owl. The numbers just don't seem to add up right.

Tina:

The numbers on the paper are coordinates that you have to punch into the GPS. N51 means "north 51" and so on.

Does that help?

If not:

"Red" refers to the time on the red clock in her room. "Blue" refers to the time on the blue watch

Did you figure that part out yet?

You do not need the plank yet. But a map would be very handy. Do you have the newspaper with the strange writing on the front page? What is written on the lower left corner? This should lead the way through the sewers. The starting point is the first room from where you can go south...

In the sewers, i walked randomly and quickly found the box
then I exited the game, then lost all my saves, and had to restart the game from the beginning.
The problem is
I can no more find the box. I made a detailed plan of all the sewers. I can go where i want when i want. But nowhere is the box.
I think i forgot to do/get something before the sewers, but what?

Title: Re: Far Corners of the World
Post by: Wesray on 13 Sep 2011, 17:09
@I am a loser:
First, look up the meaning of the symbol you've found in Suzie's book.
Then try to apply this knowledge to the painting.
In other words, you need to take a look at the back of the canvas. You should have the necessary tools.

I've found it (given by the homeless i think), read it, and know its meaning (South West East North), know on my sewers map that it leads to the door of the box.
But on my new game, the north leads no more to this door, but to the entry of the sewers.
I tried ALL passages, NO one leads to the door of the box.
Bug or feature?
Is it mandatory to have the mask in the sewers? I believe not.
Another condition mandatory???
I can send a saved game, if anyone is interested.

Thanks Wesray !

One more clue please:
Back in the sewers : No way to escape the hooded man !
The directions from the note don't work anymore
Found one place where I could place the plank but
it did not help
What am I doing wrong?
Title: Re: Far Corners of the World
Post by: Wesray on 13 Sep 2011, 18:51
@azerty
Don't worry it shouldn't be a bug and you didn't miss an item.
Yes, SWEN is the directions, but that's not all of them. See anything else on the newspaper that could be interpreted as directions?
Actually, you have two options here: Either follow NEWSSEESWEN from the main entrance to the sewers or just SWEN from the room with the ladder.
That should work, but if it doesn't, return to the entrance of the sewers and start again from the main entrance. Hope that helps!

@I am a loser:
The plank's the solution, you just need to use it in the correct place! :)
More specifically, a bit farther from the hooded guy, at the channel on the left.
Title: Re: Far Corners of the World
Post by: I am a loser on 13 Sep 2011, 19:01
Thanks Wesray !

Am I so stupid ?

Putting the plank there doesn't lead me anywhere
Do I have to lure him so he gets stuck?
When I cross the sewage over the plank, I automatically
pick it up again
However, I can cross the sewage without
using the plank again
Strange
Title: Re: Far Corners of the World
Post by: Wesray on 13 Sep 2011, 19:35
@I am a loser:
A dead end? Not if you reuse the plank!
Just take it after you've crossed the first canal and then use it on the OTHER canal on the right, leading back to the passage where you need to to go.
Ah, you found a bug! I'll fix that! :)
Title: Re: Far Corners of the World
Post by: I am a loser on 13 Sep 2011, 19:45
Wesray, Thanks again
looks like a bug, indeed
I used the plank on the left canal first,
picked it up, then used it on the canal in the middle
then crossed the plank,
picked it up automatically
when I exit south, I get caught by the hooded man again, no way to escape


Do you want me to send you a save file at this point ?

Spoke to the two museum guys and Gwen and have exhausted all topics (I thought Gwen might give me the address for the bar but apparently not). Spoke with Dr Hart. Absolutely cleaned out Suzie's apartment and bag for items. The janitor is still at the hospital, though. Do I have to make him leave?

I have my phone, wallet, ID, Suzie's note, a blank sheet of paper, a mysterious tile, that moose picture, tweezers, cleaning product, a scrubbing brush, some string, a pencil, a loaf of bread, the photo album, a broken watch and a GPS that the game won't let me use anymore (because I already have the coordinates to the park).

1) and 2) are connected,
you need to enter the cellar of Club Morelle to get the item required for popping the balloons. This will in turn help you dealing with Tim.

You were on the right track with the highscores - look at them closely.

Forgot. got it!
