    Get a LIFE! I was simply saying I was downloading it!

    Some people like you will complain about anything.

    Did you REALLY have to complain about something that trivial??

    There is such a thing as forum etiquette. No. 14 is applicable here and in this case, you didn't need to quote anything.

    I seem to break the second part of No. 13 rather a lot.

    I'm not quite sure either.
    Near the roof are animal glyphs, only got the bird opposite the door you came in to make a tone.
    Got the last steward note, Qoja's Diary and note.

    I shot in the bird symbol, then the dog, cat and bat. And I hear some sound on the mentioned animals. But still nothing happens.

    edit: never mind, puzzle solved.
    Very very nice mission. Congratulations to the author!

    The puzzle is difficult, but it is not arbitrary.
    Users who are stuck can reveal these hints, one at a time if they want to figure it out with as few spoilers as possible:

    First hint, which doesn't spoil much at all:
    Two readables contribute information - the purple diary and Qoja's diary. Qoja's diary barely relays anything on Expert, but slightly more on Hard and still more on Normal. Also, rope arrows can be used to get close and frob the animals, rather than shooting the animals.

    Second hint:
    More information is conveyed in the tomb itself. It requires looking at things closely.

    Third hint:
    You might have figured out something about the four animals mentioned in the purple diary. Maybe the animal that was omitted is important somehow.

    Fourth hint:
    The designs that surround the animal images are not all identical.

    Fifth hint:
    Look at the design around the fish, specifically. Could it be relevant?

    Sixth hint:
    If you've gotten four tones to play, use a leap of logic to figure out what to do next.

    Seventh hint:
    The fish needs to be frobbed fifth, after the other animals.

    Eight hint, which reveals all:
    The poem in the purple diary tells the order to frob four of the animals, and the design around the fish represents the room and shows which specific copy of each animal to frob. Frob the fish after the other four.

    Lovely mission. And very scary, too. Great idea with sinkhole and helping yourself with light sources. I enjoyed it very much even though I was falling down to death many, many times. And climbing was tricky
    Thanks for this one. I must add it to my notebook with "the best FMs"!

    That is still absolutely no excuse to jump on me like he did!

    That was what I was mad about.

    Some people on these forums are way too ready to start something over nothing.

    Lots of nice little touches in this one, plus no real AI, just careful stepping. I disagree about the size limitations though. Contest/small missions regularly punch above their weight because the restrictions stimulate thinking. Since they're not so time intensive to build, you get to see more authors and styles too. Not that the uber-missions are bad, but I'm the sort who would rather try six different pastries than eat a whole cake.

    I'm not getting any tones, even after reading the outright spoilers. I can see the darker marks around the fish, and I matched them up to the symbols, and frobbed bird, dog, cat then bat, then fish. Nothing. When am I supposed to be hearing tones? I have frobbed every single symbol at one point while trying to figure this out.

    Edit: And of course, I figured it out the moment I posted. I was looking at the "map" the wrong way up, and hadn't realised the little arrow was the door.

    Edit 2: Finished! And with all my rope arrows intact! This one was a lot of fun, although I made the mistake of quicksaving on a rope arrow a couple of times and being knocked off by the reload jerkiness.
