Okay, I'm pretty well stuck.

Spoiler: ShowHide

Made a solenoid - got a metal key - it doesn't seem to open anything.
Can a casino credit - can't get into the casino
Where is the ring?  EDIT - found it
Where is the rewards card?


 - Cogliostro

EDIT

My luck stays true to form.  Post a request for help, within two minutes, find the solution myself.

In order to get the piano wire, you'll need something exceptionally sharp.

Well, that worked. I'm at a fairly final sequence

Spoiler: ShowHide
where I have to flip levers for 3 fuel cells


I am completely stuck here. Any clues? I've tried mapping out
Spoiler: ShowHide
which lever controls which set of lights
but I'm getting nowhere.

Edit:
Ok, never mind that...I finished the game :)

Thanks

OK maybe I am stupid or have hit a bug but I can't move beyond the repair shop with the partition and elevator. I can't find a way to get the power on to the elevator or fix my suit so I can go thru the partition. There is what seems to be a power room but there are no hot spots in it. So where do I go from here?

Sometimes you don't need to call the electrician for solving problems like this.

Did you see those panel at the wall? You should find a way to open it.

 I've tried the screwdriver on everything and it doesn't work. There are no other tools around. Is there another panel I am misssing?

If you stand in front of the door ..
Spoiler: ShowHide
from the room without any hotspots, watch to the right to find a loose pannel at the wall (near to the other door).

I'm having a hard time figuring out the correct power distribution on the last puzzle. It seems that...
Spoiler: ShowHide
...I need to maintain all life support systems powered up (air, cabin pressure, heat shields) + the undamaged thruster (starboard). Is that a correct conclusion?
After that, do I have to...
Spoiler: ShowHide
...ask the AI to reroute the trajectory through dialogue options?
If not, what should be done?

[EDIT]
I had the note maximized...
Spoiler: ShowHide
... and covering the instruments panel, before I could see there were hotspots for the controls.
I'm now figuring I must maintain on: life support (air supply, cabin pressure, heat shields), starboard thruster, bridge controls.

[EDIT2]
Dumb me. Optimizing power cells is not required!
Spoiler: ShowHide
For some reason I was trying to leave switched off all unnecessary systems, but that's not part of the puzzle. So, as long as you leave life support on + thruster + controls, it doesn't matter if other stuff is on or off.
Anyway, I have now managed to partially correct the trajectory of the ship, but the starboard thruster control is now broken.

[EDIT3]
Finished it! Just needed a bit more speed.
Thank you for developing it KodiakBehr. It was very, very entertaining! ;)

I never did figure out how to get the upgrade from 3rd to 2nd class the right way.
Spoiler: ShowHide
I did do the mouse soup thing, but I couldn't figure out where the find the ring. I looked in the pool but didn't see anything other than pool. I eventually just used the door clipping glitch to get in the 2nd class room ad then got 1st class the right way. Can anyone tell me how I was supposed to get the ring to show up?


On another note, I'm now on the last part of the game, trying to figure the light puzzle. Can anyone give me some tips on that? Was never good at the light all lights up puzzles. Too impatient.
:cheers: + :claps:

On the first upgrade --

Spoiler: ShowHide
Ring was in the pool.  Gotta drain it first.  It's small, but it's definitely there.


On the light puzzle --

CLUE ONE:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Lights have two meanings.  On/Off, and Left/Right.

CLUE TWO:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Ever see Plinko on The Price Is Right?

CLUE THREE:
Spoiler: ShowHide
If the "Plinko Chip" passes left the first time, the second time it will pass right, and vice versa.

CLUE FOUR:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Screw it.  Just fiddle with the thing until it works out.  It's easy to stumble upon and you can't die.


Thanks for playing.  I can say with certainty that the standards are much improved in my next game!
