What is the deal with the keypad for the windmill number puzzle?

I have the sequence from the stone, and I have the numbers from each piece of the windmill, but how do I use the keypad?

I used it like the number pad on the keyboard, nothing, and you can't just press them down once and pull the handle because one of the number needs to be pressed twice.

So what is the trick to entering the numbers?

I see a lot of people having the same problem I am but with no solutions. The box with the buttons just will not open. I have the sequence correct, that's easy, but no matter how many times I click the fish it still won't open. Please help!

I am having difficulty with the doll:

After placing the metal head on the doll I cannot figure out how to put the doll back in the drawer. If i remember correctly the correct drawer is the one that is locked by the fruit bowl. I have tried repositioning the doll as well but with no luck

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am also having trouble with the doll thing. I can't get it lined up to the holes. Can someone help?

Thank you allimarie.If I had just read carefully enough I would have found your answer to csifan14.

Wow, I did it!

Of course, it was not on my own: a friend of mine helped, and those spoilers helped much more... But it's a good game!

I really enjoyed this game. It wasn't easy, and I had to use the "Hint-Through" [by the way, pineapple, thanks for that! I DEFINITELY preferred it to an old fashioned "here's-how-to-do-EVERYTHING-and-you-might-have-been-able-
to-do-it-from-there-but-DANG!-you-looked-ahead!" regular walkthroughs :) ]

It was refreshing to see honest effort put into creating one of these games! The animation was splendid and a lot of thought obviously went into it. The plot twists were pleasant surprises and I will definitely look into more of this designer's work!

Reply

I got to the last puzzle, figured it out, it didn't work. I used the hint through, it confirmed what I thought. I checked the Walkthrough, again it confirmed what I thought. I am:

Putting the gems into the heads according to habitat, got the picture worked out, clicked the red gem, and nothing happens. what am I doing wrong? can anyone suggest something?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The crank thing that goes on in the floor does not open anything. I've looked everywhere god knows how many times. HELP!!

The end puzzle trouble shooting

I've found that two things can go wrong:

1: the body of the bird - it needs to have a straight back, and a curved belly.

2: The bird does not have any legs. If a leg comes out from under the belly you got it wrong.

Having the same problem as a few others

I got the metal head into the doll but have no idea what to do with it to get the "WOAH effect", as the hints put it.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm also stuck at the figurine part; please help! :)

I'm also having problems with the doll. Can anyone help, it's driving me crazy!

I cant get the doll into the puzzle

To those of you with the figurine problem:

Okay, so have you gotten the two pieces in the secret compartment behind the seashell picture? Well, it should rotate, and you'll see that the empty part looks like a diamond with legs coming out from the bottom. You have to click the limbs of your figurine until its shape resembles that of the missing part in the compartment. And then put the figurine into the empty part.

For the person looking at the bottom of the pot:

So you've see that arrow pointing at one of the dots on the bottom of the pot? Well, imagine that as the hand of the clock (so you might want to draw it out on paper), and you have to click the buttons on the clock in relation to where the hand is on the clock and pot. You can't just click them in the same order that you see on the pot.

For the gem in the clock problem:

Note: the gem is NOT THE MARBLE. (They're different.) The green gem is on the box underneath the desk, which you get by opening the box and unscrew the screw that is holding the gem on using your screwdriver.

And I have a question of my own:

I've gotten to the last puzzle in the dark room part, and I'm pretty sure I've got all the tiles and marbles in the right place, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything....
I've got a screenshot if you want to look at it. -_-

Truly an entertaining game! Thanks to EVERYONE for all the hints and questions and stuff. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who gets lost sometimes. LOL. I especially liked

the different views of the windmill you could choose from at the credits page.

...Hmm...not sure if that really needed to be in spoilers but better safe than sorry.

OMG!! this is great!! haha the second point n' click i ever solve... i use lots of the hints in this page specially in the fish button part, and the damn roman numbers!! well i'm finally out, and i can go to bed now,(or not cause it is almost work time ¬¬)

I used the hint through in certain places... Then I got to the dark area with the puzzle and glanced back at the hint-through, only to see this big WARNING that told me I shouldn't have pressed the red button yet.

:( I only have 3 marbles in my possession, the 4th is still in the frog's eye, dangit..

Nevermind on my last post, my 4th marble was still in the magnifier. Solved the puzzle, yay!

Thank you very much. I have enjoyed the game a lot.
I have found a small mistake in #47, opening the second metal box. The hexagon is not always six. In my case it was seven. To see the number of the hexagon (=axis of the mill wings), you need to make the mill move again and see upward until the number appears.

For those of you having a problem with the 4 x 4 box - I was having the same problem.

Make sure you put the gold orb into the viewbox and look through it - to see the proper positioning of the fish button - then try it again. It will work.

wow... simply the most aesthetic point and clicks i have ever seen...

By far the best point and click game that I have played to date. Not too easy but very entertaining. The hints are awesome, not too much info. but just enough to get by if you get stuck. Keep up the awesome work!

What a great game! I did it twice, once with the walkthrough and then then on my own. The walkthrough is really helpful, and it's best if you try to do the things yourself, then see if you're right - you feel smart when you are. :P That was really fun. Oh, and thanks to the Anon who posted about the bird at the end.

Great hints...thank you. The only thing I'm stumped on so far, is there are a lot of hints about putting the metal head on the manequin, but where is the metal head ? Hellllp !

Another excellent game from neutral. Vision is by far my favorite in this genre. The scene development was great and the eye candy in this one was amazing. It has the perfect balance of logic and creativity. Thanks, Mya, for making these incredible games. Thanks to Jay for bringing them to us:)

You need to align the pattern on the bottom of the venus flytrap so the arrow points the same was as the clock hand. Then press the buttons clockwise from the clock hand.

I have only recently started playing escape the room games. This has to be the best and i'm thrilled that i've finished it. Excellent graphics, almost makes you want to stay in the room. My biggest problem was the box at the top of the windmill. Can't wait for another game just like this now.

I am stuck at the puzzle on the balcony!

I have the numbers from the windmill blade: 4, the semicircle: 5, the gear: 2 and the top of the windmill (which I am assuming is the hexagon number): 7 (also, I have already tried it with the #6 for the hexagon and it has not worked also). Can someone please help me figure out how to complete that puzzle!!

for the Roman Numerals, the hexagon number is on the windmill, after making the wheel turn, climb up past the box where you input the numbers, and look up as the windmill turns

i'm sure this has been brought up, but a few corrections..

there are no numbers on the rusty gear pieces, the number for the hexagon is obtained by turning on the windmill, going up the ladder, looking at the panel, then looking up. wait till the windmill rotates, and a number appears on the bottom.

There is no way I could have done this without the walkthrough. Would have taken me forever... it's a great one though.

Never mind on the 4th marble, I had it all along.

I'm having trouble w/ the end. Don't you need to use the gear box key to unlock the drawer on the right and get the 2nd half of the rusty gear? You then, replace the new gear w/ the rusty one, and place the new one in the missing gear slot inside (under the shelf of plants)?

HELP!?

Reply

Time to answer some questions...
The 4x4 grid puzzle

When I played, You HAVE to look into the desert marble to open the box, the fish rotating thing has to be facing UP, then, press the 2 middle buttons in the 2nd row, the rightmost button in the 3rd, and the 2nd button from the left on the bottom row, not opening? Make sure you "unpush" the 2nd button from the left on the 2nd row

The 9 Button Keypad

This is hard to explain, anywayz, if you look on the 3rd page of your sketchbook, the keypad is numbered in a CLOCK-WISE SPIRAL, something like this
1 2 3
8 9 4
7 6 5
(I hope this turns out right..)once you got that, the dark blue marble from the Venus Flytrap will guide your way, BTW, the roman numerals change everytime you play

The Clock & The Frog

Once you put the multi-colored gem into the frog's missing eye socket, make it face LEFT, then put it in the 4th (i think) empty space on the plant shelf. On the lights, and you got the frog looking into the clock on the 5:00 button, put the green GEM (not the marble) you got from the same box as the multi-colored marble into the 5:00 button, *reflects light onto floor*, yeah..

The 4-digit combination lock

Aight... It says in the green marble that its Triangle + Cirlce X Square, 'X' comes first so it should be 'Circle X Square + Triangle', take a calculator and work it out

Reply

i'm confused, how can I put the second and third metal piece into the automatic lock, after the light on the floor?

Reply

excellent guys, i made it!! finished!! it is such a beautiful game!! thank you all for your help!! can't wait until the next game comes up!! we'll meet again!
