Rin Higurashi

:
when you change the colour of the well to a certain colour it can change what room you will be in!!! sorry if i am bad at explaining

completed it. The object is to get some wand and place it in the long box at the start.

You need to know how to read the drawing on the wall
It's a plan and 2 side elevations.
You need to draw it on a piece of scrap paper.

Undeneath the room you are in is where you get to use it.

Not sure what Rin is on about the well..
The main room has the following exits:
Wood Room - with 3 glowing lights
Well Room - pull the lever to change the colours
Power room - see the map and what I said earlier.
T Junction - left is a computer, right is a gap with a forcefield on the other side.

Caution!!! *SPOILER* Walkthrough















The object is to retrieve a wand and return it to the box in the start screen

1. Go down the hole.

You are in the center of a chamber with 4 tunnels as follows


big column room
trees
well
laser shield - color machine


2. Go straight ahead through first tunnel entrance you see. (you see a big column above a yellow square) swith to your right, diagram to your left.
3. Turn right and flip the switch on (down).
4. About face and examine picture (print the picture bc you値l need it later). Exit, You値l be returning to this room to solve a puzzle.
5. In the center of the main chamber, turn right, enter tunnel (you値l see wood posts or trees?)
6. There are three lights. Turn the left one on. Exit
7. Go back to the first tunnel you were in.
8. It has now opened to reveal a stairway
9. Descend the stairs. A cube puzzle is there.
10. Look at the picture you printed, which is the top, left and right views of the completed puzzle
11. Use the buttons on the block to elevate each square to replicate the final configuration shown in the picture.
12. The finished heights are:

DON乃 LOOK IF YOU WANT TO TRY IT FIRST










3 3 2
2 3 3
1 2 1 (rewarded by cool music)

to see a finnished yellow puzzle, go here

http://img256.imageshack.us/img256/7492/yellowpuzzleend3hl.jpg

13. Go back to the tree room
14. Illuminate the middle light, exit
15. Go to the well room, notice the water is clear.
16. Pull the lever and the water now has color. Note the numbers and corresponding colors. Exit
17. Go to the tunnel with the laser shield and you値l see a 田olor machine? in the left corridor
18. Approach the machine to reveal some sliding buttons with a total of 15 vertical positions for each. The sliders will be used to count in Base 16 (remember Base Numbers from high school?)
19. Alas for example, for the # 255 on red from the well (your #s and corresponding colors may be different), raise the left red slider 15 positions, each positions corresponds to a value of 16 (15 x 16 = 240) and the right red slider 15 positions. You have just used the sliders to count to 255 in Base 16.
20. One more example, for the number 63 (blue), raise the left blue slider 3 positions (3 X 16 = 48) and the right blue slide 15 positions.
21. For the number 0 from the well, do not raise the sliders
22. Push the yellow button.
23. If you get it right the dome will glow the same color that was in the well. If you get it wrong the dome will cease to glow in which case you need to go back to the cube puzzle room and reset the switch on the wall and then back to the well to do it over again
24. Note the laser shied at the opposite end of the tunnel is off now but you can稚 get across. This will ultimately be your exit later on.
25. Now go back to the tree room and illuminate the light on the right.
26. Return to the former laser shield.
27. New room. Enter, go right, up ladder, then right, retrieve wand, place in box. Music again
28. Done

No, a geek would be more acurate. I have way too much time on my hands.. I got a masters in physics from the University of Idaho. A place everyone shoud see. Base numbers are quite routine...especialy in IT. Everyone is familiar with the Base 10 system. That's our 1 thru 10 counting system. For example, using the sliders to count to 22, (in Base 10) one would raise the left slider to position 2 (20) and the right slider to position 2 ergo 22. Call me a geek. I am. lol

Slide both of the buttons on red up to the top

Slide the left button on green up 11 positions and the right button on green up 2 positions

I assume u had "0" for blue

:
Is it worth the ending, because I cannot figure out this Base 16 and apply it to the puzzle.

Comment 48, Monday, July 25th 2005 11:07:00 PM

Miru

:
Help!!!!
I know how the base 16 works but my question is which color do i need to solve this puzzle? The globe keeps changing colors.....*sigh* or did I miss anything?

Comment 49, Monday, July 25th 2005 11:57:00 PM

Miru

You can use any of the colors in the well, there is not a "right" color. Try any of them. Each time you pull the lever, you get another color. The dome color changes before you solve the puzzle (visual effect I suppose) and then matches the color you chose at the well when you solve the puzzle.

Jenny

Think of it this way. Say one of your numbers is 100. How many times does 16 go into 100? Answer, 6 times with a remainder of 4. Thus, slide the left button up 6 positions and the right up 4 positions.
