- the phrase "let's leave it" feels wrong to me... I'm guessing it should be translated to "Let's go"
That's my fault. It was no easy process doing the translation of the translation. I don't know who did the first translation (spanish -> english) but it mostly seemed to be done via google-translator (sorry, I don't want to offend somebody, it just looked like that). So to understand the logic behind these sentences, I had to play the game in Spanish and retranslate most of the English lines. So it could be possible that there are one or two lines, which I forgot and don't seem right/appropriate. ;)


All in all, it was really nice to be able to help creating such a wonderful game and bring in some new ideas that, apparently, got realised :)  And, if you want, I would continue my work as translator and "idea-creator" (;D) on the full game.

Yes, I had the same problem with the first demo.  Quo gave it to me already translated (which was great, since I don't speak any Spanish) and just asked me to fix up the syntax.  But that was a headache!  It was a large part of why it took so long, to say nothing of the fact that it was a busy time for me...


Thanks for working on the translation! :)

I totally understand... if you don't know any Spanish it's really hard to make any sense out of these lines. I had the advantage of having learned Spanish for about 5 years, so it was a little bit easier for me to do this ;)

No problem, I like to help on such a great game :)

I'm really enjoying this demo. I don't speak Spanish, but I'd like to make an offer to go through the translations and reword things/improve the syntax in order to make everything flow more smoothly. What do you think? I've also just got some minor suggestions here and there you'd like to hear them.

(And I'm stuck at the beam of light ???.)

Look very closely at an item in your inventory.

As I said before, the hot spot on this item is a bit hard to find...

One question-- what was the purpose of the first screen with the split-trunked tree and the branch?

As I watched the whole movie again to find out what to do with the damned carved paving Stone, I found out that it is not a part of the movie, but all the backgrounds are really close to the movie. So guess who is running from the hovitos in this screenshot from the movie.

I don't know why the bushes next to the man with the hat look like a lion attacking him though. So if anyone can help me out with the carved paving stone I'd be thankful.
I already put it into the loom but Indy just looked around and nothing happened...

Cool!

As to your question...  Here's the solution...

Look at the stone while in the room with the light.  You'll then be able to turn the stone over using a kind of difficult to find hotspot on the side of the stone.

Suggestion for Jandomer and Quo...

For the turn-over hotspot that everyone's struggling with... how about a simple interface on the image to make it implicitly clear where to click, such as an arrow to click on?

Great demo! Feels as professional as LucasArts own efforts.

However, I am stuck in the room with the idol. Can anyone tell me how to pick up the idol?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the hint, but I must admit I have no idea who or what Forrestal is.
I am not feeling to clever over here now :) .

Probably the scene from the novel.  There's a scene in Germany where Belloq meets with Hitler that's in the novel.
