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.

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.

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.

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

skirvin - 11:43pm Nov 9, 1999 PST(#28 of 4060)

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

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 - 05:34am 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 - 10:10am 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.

Edan - 12:56pm Nov 10, 1999 PST(#32 of 4060)

I just got another response from tech support. They said they are aware of the problem and are trying to make a fix. Yay! I just don't know if they meant the Iron Maiden bug or the crashes.... (hopefully both)

Gail B - 04:37pm Nov 10, 1999 PST(#33 of 4060)

Sigh, I'm stuck again. I have the cable car running and it is stuck on the ice. I've tried everything but so far, nothing works. I can't move away from the control panel with the flashing red light! I have tried moving the only switch the game will let me. All I have in my inventory is the flashlight, glass of wine, mended instructions and the list from the puzzle box. Am I missing something? What am I doing wrong? HELP!

Edan - 04:46pm Nov 10, 1999 PST(#34 of 4060)

Gail (and anyone else qith difficulty with the controls) To move certain levers, you click on it and then drag the mouse up or down.

(Gail: One of those levers is a backwars/forwards lever... hint, hint)
