    A Night Visit to the Natural History Museum (Aug. 24/04)

    Does anyone know where one can download this FM: "VISITE NOCTURNE AU MUSEUM"? It must be an FM by Louve in French. Pictures can be found on this site: http://ladyjo1.free.fr/FM/page61.htm

    All the texts will be in the \Books\French directory. Just translate all of them and put the new .str files in \Books\English and add them to the ZIP. However, I wouldn't distribute such an archive without the author's permission... an English translation may already be in the works.

    This is a brand new mission from Louve made for Lady Jo birthday.
    Louve made the mission "Fragments", the 3/5 part of the FM "Nightmares" (Cauchemars).

    Stuck already.

    spoiler:
    I can't find the spare key to the lab, which (if I'm mangling my French properly) is mentioned in a note left by Marcellin to Heinrich. Any hints as to its location?

    Also, I found the hidden room adjacent to the ground-floor offices, but there's a trapdoor (presumably leading down to the lab), and I see no way to open it. Am I overlooking a switch?

    Secret switch:

    spoiler:

    I didn't find the trapdoor yet, but did find a secret switch that was located in the Lab where the crates are. I don't know what it opens, but the switch I found is located where the lift goes down to, next to the lift power post in the lab. You have to remain in the basement lab and operate the lift back up from there and search where the lift base is. Its in the square space at the bottom right under that lift-look closely where you will find a coin also.



    EDIT: I found the key for the actual LABoratory now and further exploration continues...

    Thank you, dealasteal. I'm on my way into the lab, also.

    And I finally opened the trapdoor; Louve has a real talent for hiding those switches.
    spoiler:
    The trapdoor apparently doesn't lead anywhere important, although it does give you a spy's-eye view of the laboratory ... and a nice bit of loot, if you can find it.

    My French is a more than a bit rusty, but here's my take on it.

    Objectives:
    spoiler:
    1. Find some means of entering the Natural History Museum.
    2. From there, find your way to the warehouse of the Museum of Fine Arts.
    3. Leave the museum park by way of the gate (near where you began).
    4. With all the art stored in the museum warehouse, you should easily be able to pick up 10000/20000/30000 in loot.


    Getting in:
    spoiler:
    You'll need to do some climbing. Think Jack and the Beanstalk.

    That's one huge building! Erm... There's a streetlight outside that's playing Happy Birthday! Gah, clipping errors!

    Well that was rather short!!! I guess this was made for someone who doesn't like Spiders!

    Haha Sluggs,

    I noticed that too when i came up to that lamp.
    spoiler:
    I slashed at all the frozen spiders in every room of the building. Thinking, The intruding guest might be the snack of a birthday party while he was en route.

    A Museum full of long legged pets. YIKES!

    secret

    I can't help revealing! Somebody stop ME!!!

    spoiler:

    Once the secret switch is activated, remain in the basement and search a corner next to a group of crates where one of them has now moved.. revealing a trap door with a key.

    to open the safe: search the legs of the desk nearby

    to find some other secrets: examine room with animated lamps

    anyone knows, how to "open" that golden skull ?
