Far Corners of the World
« 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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
First you have to know the Doctors' names so look at both doctors.  One is Doc Hart the other is Doc Miller.

2.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
You have to have Gwen's Pass... The Chewing Gum... the Cutters...and Your ID

How to get the Items Listed above

1.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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...
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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...

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.

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?

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
 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?

Now what?


Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.

Okay, new problem

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.

EDIT:

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

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.

I've read something about going to the airport. But how do I go there? It doesn't seem to be on the map.

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..?

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..

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

CAKE HINTS)
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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)
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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)
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
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.
