Does anyone know how to get the cable car going? I did all that the hint suggested and am inside the cable car and nothing is happening! I have been playing with the two levers you can touch with no results....Help!

Re: the cable car: Did you find the instructions like green suggested? Hint: Perhaps you need something to light your way?

If you already have the instructions, follow them (on the controls outside) the car.

(Also, some people have told me that they couldn't get it to work, but reloading an earlier game and trying it again worked... was fine when I tried it... of course, I did run into a couple of crashes :()

Does anyone have any suggestions to the marble game Peacock's riddle in the castle? The clues don't help and I am stuck and frustrated...I understand that is the most challenging riddle. I have Mrs. white's riddle solved. The castle is very challening everyone who is not there yet. But fun!!!! The cablecar is hard to get started. Just keep trying. I think you might try the left switches up that worked for me. Even tho the instructions didn't say it that way. Make sure you save your games..I was in the castle and had a fatal error and had to go back to the cablecar. Yikes! By the way I have a friendly sleuth I know that finished this!!! Amazing. He is my hero!!!!

the marble game is challenging...i got it though, and it is the first and only for me so far. keep working the marble in the holes....your object is to get the walls to the far right to drop down. once you get to the second hole everything falls in place. good luck.

edan, did you get the iron maiden open? once you get all the spikes out, DONT click on the middle, you will have to start over. she just opened up for me, although i may have clicked on her but not in the middle. i quit for the night (morning) and will resume with trying to solve col. mustard. i got the rest of the jewels, there are only 5 right? this game is lots of fun. hope everyone is enjoying themselves!

Edan - 06:49am Nov 9, 1999 PST(#21 of 4060)

Iron maiden hasn't opened up for me... even tried using several previous saves (including one from the end of act 2) but it didn't work for me. when I click on the maidnen (not in the middle) after I made the star, I just get a message that says that "Maybe I should learn more about it before fiddling with it". I don't know what more I can learn. I hypnotized plum to learn the riddle, than I went to the iron maiden and made the star figure. Is there more than that? Do you remember where you clicked, by any chance? (on the arms, wheel, spikes, in the star... etc?)

Could someone who can, mail me their saved games (or at least one where they've gotten plum and peacocks jewels (I *don't* want to do that marble thing again.. sigh) mail them to me? vuuencoded would be best, but I might be able to decode mime... or else put them on a webpage?

Just mail me first, so I don't get lots of email of saved games ;-)

Thanks, Edan

Thanks skirvin for the marble clue and encouragement. It definitely is a fun game. I have not had time to sit down and keep going on it. It is addicting therefore I have to make sure I have the time! Can't wait to get through this so I can get the next one.

skirvin - 10:43am Nov 9, 1999 PST(#23 of 4060)

edan, click on the wheel that surrounds the spikes, 2 sections of it lifted and turned, then it opened up. try that, maybe thats what i did-and didnt realize it...this is so intense, and we are trying to pay such close attention to things that it is sometimes hard to remember if you clicked or didnt! lol i am having alot of fun, hope everyone else is too! now...i must go conquer col. mustard!

The story is very interesting. I love the new characters. I've never read anything like it.

Edan - 04:04pm Nov 9, 1999 PST(#25 of 4060)

Sigh. It seems I am doomed to never open the iron maiden. Sigh, I guess I will email tech support. Well, at least Gabriel Knight 3 will be out in a few days (at which point, Clue will probably be put on the back burner...)

felicia williams - 07:50pm Nov 9, 1999 PST(#26 of 4060)

Thank you!!!! for the tips on the marble game it's very very challenging and I had been trying for the longest to crack it. solving the riddle for Miss Scarlet causes a cool effect! Thanks again!! Have a good evening everyone.
