    How to open color safe? I tried divide numbers from list by number of switches and I got 51324, but it's wrong. Tried to use switches in order from smallest number to biggest and I got 52341. Also wrong. Then I decided to search for letters corresponding to colors and use them in order. So I got: white, sea, green, violet, red. It gave me 15342, but it's still wrong. Then I decided to press color switches number of times that were on the list. In other words I pressed 1st switch 20 times, etc. But this didn't work either. I am really clueless.

    @Galaer: Have you read the auditor's note on the desk in that room? It hints at what things you are looking for.

    @radogoal: Read the note to Kevel for help with the buttons.

    In the storage room there's a chest with loot (the platonic crystals), the storage room key and nothing else.

    Major spoiler ahead: EDIT... Again! Ok so this is puzzle was annoying because if you take the loot from the storage room and if you don't know how important it is, you're kinda stuck. Unless I've missed a note describing the number of surfaces/color combination, take a screenshot or make a note of the number of surfaces of each crystal you take from the chest. Purple = 4, Green = 6, blue = 20, red = 8, white = 12 (the diamond mentioned). Code = blue, green, red, white, purple.

    As per the readme, none of the puzzles require you to do math. But that insight about the diamond may still prove useful.

    Just keep plugging along, and maybe the solution will be more apparent later. It’s not impeding any of your progress towards beating the mission.

    Not quite. You'll get another chance to work these out later.

    The sequence for the colored buttons does not require the player to examine the loot in the storage room. That’s a clever way to figure it out, but not the intended one. So if the puzzle was frustrating, it’s only because you were trying to solve it earlier than intended. As you progress further, you’ll likely note that all of the information is contained on the plaques in the platonic crystals exhibit.

    You did it a faster, but cleverer/harder way— no harm in that

    Looking good so far, played about 15 min. I'm not a big fan of too many puzzles, but i'll try it. Just one thing, i'm already really tired to hear "No luck here" And not just one time per door.
    Really funny floors, i made it to 105

    Hm, you shouldn’t be hearing that at all, yet. There’s exactly one place in the mission where you should hear that, and it’s towards the end. Not sure what’s happening, but I’ll look into it.

    I can't see which keys I have. It would be useful if it worked better than just a keychain. :3

    Oh boy, this mission is breaking me. I managed to get code for final painting and use it correctly. I got holy blessing sound. Then I noticed 4 statues and read descriptions under them. So I need 4 items. Where they are? I have no idea. I have every area in hotel unlocked, I was everywhere and never spot any special items. Also just to be sure, is this the way to get Aleph Stone or is it in some completely different place?

    I'm hearing "no luck" too at almost every doors. Visual and architecture are really nice but the game become quickly frustrating. I'm playing in Expert and it's really hard to find what to do next. All I find is secrets when trying to find where to go. I don't like playing in normal or hard in general, is there more clue in lower difficulties ?

    Well, 3 hours. The map is a little maze-ish but nothing too bad. Verdict: Wow!
    Bug (possibly game-breaking): if you try to use keys (instead of black crystal) with a pedestal, pedestal starts to move up to the sky in the Pink Floyd's "Welcome to the machine" style...

    The four items you seek are at the base of the "Muse of the Four Seasons," from where you began the mission

    There is a way to get the Aleph Stone. Have you been in the West Wing already?

    Great and very beautiful mission so far but I'm stuck at the same place as many it seems. I can't find a way into the head of staff office. There is a banner one floor above that should head in the direction and it's the only one i can hit with a sword and it makes a sound but I can't figure anything out. Please help, I want to go on, the beginning seems so promising

    ah yeah and I also hear the "no luck here" on every lock that needs a key

    LOL! I didn't realize the default lockpick not working click sound is called "noluck." The voice-over I used for another part of the game overwrote it. Not a "bug," per se, but not an intentional design choice. I can see how that would get annoying though. I'll probably patch it up at some point, since I prefer the "click" sound, myself.

    Yes, the easier difficulty levels provide more direct hints. Where are you stuck at the moment? Have you been in the Penthouse yet?

    I appreciate your final verdict! Glad you enjoyed it!

    RE: the pedestals, that is certainly not supposed to happen

    UPDATE: Issue fixed in v1.05. Pedestal no longer reacts to keys

    The door will be you way out, not your way in.

    Bigger hint: Consider window access


    Big hint regarding Penthouse access: Think about the non-standard technique you used to get into the staff only area. Note the .'s and _'s (standard Morse Code notation) in Kevel's task list

    I'll reiterate my earlier hints:


    And further clarify that if you have the note to Kevel you already have everything you need to progress. Task 2 tells you exactly how to get into the Staff Only area.
    Yes, I think I understand the task 2 of note to Kevel but it's not working.

    1. Stand by staff-only door.

    2. Click on button and hold, then mouse to something else - button now appears to be in "down" position.

    3. Attempt to unlock door with Kevel's key, lockpicks, my bare hands - nothing works!


    What am I missing here?
