Title: Chalkman
Post by: miguel on 27 Feb 2013, 10:32
Stuck!
Spoiler: ShowHide
There's no indications on what to do, I'm sure I've missed a spot but just can't seem to find anything to interact. There's the flushing thing and lots of closed doors...

The guy in Wong's Cafe is telling you what to do in Chinese. So, you need to learn how to read Chinese! (Don't feel bad, my Chinese is pretty poor too because I spend too much time making frivolous games rather than studying). On the other hand, if learning Chinese is not convenient..

Like with a DVD in a foreign language, turn on the subtitles.

hmm, ok I see, the combination wasn't the problem. Do I have to remove the bars or is there a hidden door again?

I've played the game up to the point where you find the exit in the building and I went
Spoiler: ShowHide
through to the room with the second set of tic tac toe figures but I can't figure out where to go from there.
If any one could help I would really appreciate it.

Post by: monkey424 on 14 Mar 2013, 10:50
Yes this part's a bitch, but keep trying those doors. Draw a map if it helps. I can upload a walkthrough map if you're completely stuck!
Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: Michael2968 on 14 Mar 2013, 13:33
If it wouldn't be too much trouble could you send me a walkthrough. I have tried walking through the doors many times and I just cannot figure out the right way to go.

thanks,
Michael

Here you go..

Spoiler: ShowHide
(http://imageshack.us/a/img12/3750/walkthrough.png)

You start in the top left square and need to follow that red line to the end.

Don't go through doors marked with an X because that will send you back to the start.


Cheers!

And if you're still fucking confused, try this..

Spoiler: ShowHide
(left door = 1, central door = 2, right door = 3)

starting from first room with 'exit' sign..

2, 3, 2, 2, 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, 2, 2, 1, 3, 3, 2, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 3, 1, 1, 1, 2

Is there a way to get past the

axe murderer in the hotel?
Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: monkey424 on 08 Jun 2013, 08:41
Yes! There is a way. The scene is reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.

"Here's Johnny!"

Spoiler: ShowHide
Barricade the door with something. Quick!!
Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: Michael2968 on 09 Jun 2013, 01:39
I've explored the room
Spoiler: ShowHide
beside the bar as much as I could but I still can't figure out what to push against the door.
I figure that you are supposed to get
Spoiler: ShowHide
the extension cord and the ladder from the room ,for the time machine, once you get rid of the axe murderer.
I would appreciate any more hints you could give me.

Thanks,
Michael

Did you..

look at the hotel registry book?


And did you..

examine that poster you picked up?


And can you..

see something in common.. a name?
Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: Michael2968 on 10 Jun 2013, 14:39
Thanks for your help. I got through that part of the game. Is there a way to
Spoiler: ShowHide
get through the metal detector at the museum with all the inventory items? Also how do you get the flute?
Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: monkey424 on 11 Jun 2013, 11:21
There's no way to get through the 'item detector' with inventory items. So forget it!
I'm sure you'll think of something else.

Hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
At Wong's Cafe, eat plenty of fortune cookies. Some contain hints, and others will help you proceed in the game.

Thanks for the hint for the museum. I got through that part of the game. Could you please give me an idea about

Even after getting help from the

Did you..

Collect the Wong's Cafe puzzle placemat? It's actually a guide to get through the maze. Give it a try, and save your game regularly too as you progress.
Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: Michael2968 on 15 Jun 2013, 23:56
I've got the

place mat from Wong's but I'm not sure how it relates to the maze or the grid pattern at the top left of the screen that the crystal ball lady gives you.

I understand

the map but I can't seem to relate it to the actual maze.
The part I can't figure out is

how to get to level 2 and the other levels in the actual maze.


Thanks,

Title: Re: Chalkman

Spoiler: ShowHide

in B4, use the stairs and check on the map overview if you arrived in level 2.
Same procedure in F5. And about the snake: go forth and back and forth


Title: Re: Chalkman
Post by: Michael2968 on 24 Jun 2013, 02:15
Okay, I figured out how to get to
Spoiler: ShowHide
level three but I still can't figure out how to get to the exit.

Post by: monkey424 on 24 Jun 2013, 12:51
Hey mate.

I'll send you a walk through of the mall maze tomorrow when I can get to the computer. Didn't get a chance tonight. Using iPhone.

Sounds like you're nearly there anyway. If you got to level 3 and are in the right grid cell, then just try going down a couple of flights of stairs back to level 1.


MEGA MART MAZE WALKTHROUGH

Starting at the entrance, proceed as follows:

LevelCellGo through door *
1D11

1C30

2D52

2G31
1G41 or 2


* where:

0 = middle door
1 = left door
2 = right door
3 = left stairs
4 = right stairs

I have figured out how to get into
Spoiler: ShowHide
the vault in the train station but I can't figure out how to actually get the money out of the vault.[hide]


 I also think I have to put either [hide]the bleach or something lucky in the fountain at the casino.


I would appreciate any hints about these two parts of the game.

Thanks,
Michael

Post by: monkey424 on 27 Jun 2013, 12:43
Good work getting into the
Spoiler: ShowHide
vault via subway.

Did you
Spoiler: ShowHide
talk to the guards in the casino outside the vault?

If so, can you
Spoiler: ShowHide
give them something to put in the vault?

Hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Watch Ocean's 11.

If you don't own a copy of
Spoiler: ShowHide
Ocean's 11

then
Spoiler: ShowHide
Go to the video shop and rent Ocean's 11.

If you don't have the
Spoiler: ShowHide
item for the vault

then you may need to
Spoiler: ShowHide
Solve another random and idiotic puzzle first.

Good luck!

Also, check this promo (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=47679.0) I made recently. You might see a clue somewhere that might help.

Ok, I got from your promo
Spoiler: ShowHide
the part about getting the part off the top of the little building when the plummer comes to fix it.[hide] Then I somehow figured out I should use it in the [hide]subway machine to change the time on the clocks.
Am I on the right track to get the item I need?

Thanks,
