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!

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 - 11:43am 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 - 05:04pm 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...)

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.


skirvin - 09:24pm Nov 9, 1999 PST(#27 of 4060)

anyone let me know when you get to the "maze dungeon". i keep getting lost!! lol this is awsome.


skirvin - 12:43am Nov 10, 1999 PST(#28 of 4060)

great ending.....cant wait for you all to get there and see "whodunit"! 8-)


Gail Broadie - 04:41am Nov 10, 1999 PST(#29 of 4060)

I still can't get into the wheel house and I can't figure out what to do! I combined the artifact with the puzzle box and it opened. I read the paper inside. Now what? Please help. Gail


Edan - 06:34am Nov 10, 1999 PST(#30 of 4060)

Gail, Did Miss White drop the vase? if so, you'll note a down arrow next to her...


Edan - 11:10am Nov 10, 1999 PST(#31 of 4060)

Sigh. I emailed tech support and they sent a reply saying pretty much "That's a gameplay issue, not a technical support issue, use the ingame help or the walktrhoughs on the web" (What walkthroughs?!)

As a programmer myself, I know the difference between a gameplay issue and a bug, and this looks like a bug (when two people follow the same steps, the game should react the same, no?) I wrote back to them, telling them that, and I included the error log the game made when it crashed twice, in case it's related.
