5. Place 60 ounce of water into any sink.

6. Place the wet processed photo into the water for 60 seconds. Take the wet final photo. Really. Really good.

7. Hang the wet final photo on the line. Move one or 2 steps away. Go back and take the final photograph.

Go outside to Carmen. Talk to Carmen about the secret meeting place and give her the final photograph.

Get to the Church Tower:   

Iglesia San Pedro:    Go to the church. See Father Perez standing there.

Go to the iron door.

Weird key: Remember Carlos mentioned that he found a double key for the tower gate.

In inventory, combine the 2 weird keys.

Right click one weird key to get a close up view.

Take the other weird key from inventory and click it on the close up of the other weird key.

Click on the snap of the short weird key. The 2 keys are now one weird double key.

Look close at the keyhole and see that the double key and the keyhole match.

Try to use the double key on the keyhole and Professor says to find a way to do it without Father Perez. This will trigger the next part.

Get the priest away from the church:

Plaza de la Mancha:   

Domingo, the guitar player:    Talk to Domingo about a favour.

Give Domingo 100 pesetas. Professor Hunt asks Domingo to call Reoyos at the police station using the phone at the Taverna. Tell Reoyos that he wishes to talk to Father Perez concerning the ill friend, Fernando. He is to call in half an hour.

Iglesia San Pedro:    Go to the church. Talk to Father Perez.

See what happens when Reoyos arrives. The coast is clear.

Church Tower:

Iron door: Look close and use the double key on the metal door's keyhole. Turn the key and open the door.

Professor Hunt enters the secret tower room.

Tower room:    Look around. See a broken ladder going to the top of the tower where the doves are.

Go to the corner small table. Take the key from tower. Take the letter from Carlos on the table. Read Carlos Candelas' letter. Carlos talks about a 'reserve' and Carmen's medallion from her mother maybe the solution.

Check the bookcases at the other end of the room and other artifacts on the table.

Kaleidoscope:    Look close at the kaleidoscope by the window.

Look through the lens and see wonderful colored prisms. These look familiar.

Tubes - There are 6 tubes of prism that can be rotated as seen inside the big chamber at side view.

Prism design - There are 8 prism designs as seen when viewed through the lens for one of those tubes. There are side arrows that cycle the designs.

Dial - The tubes can be rotated using the dial on the front of the kaleidoscope. The dial's code as to where it points is based on the circle with lines below it. The lines are in wedges. One line means the first in the sequence, 2 lines wedge is the second in the sequence and so on... Turn the dial to point where the selected wedge is positioned in the circle.

Kaleidoscope puzzle:    The aim of the puzzle is to select a specific design for each of the 6 tubes and the tubes are to be done in numbered order.

The designs to be selected are taken from all the pictures of tiles with numbers and design seen throughout the game.

The sequence of the design to be entered in the kaleidoscope is based on the clue left by WK on the wall of the secret cellar in the sewer.

After roaming throughout, note that there are some similar numbers in the pictures but have different tile design. By trial and error, deduce which one to use.

Deduction of the numbers on the wall: The number seen on the wall at the secret cellar is:  111412310.

Numbered pictures seen in town:    Painter's room - 10; Plaza - 1, 3; Police station - 18, 16; Candelas - 8, 11, 5, 7, 14, 15, 19, 1, 12 and 4; Darkroom - 11; Secret cellar - 14, 2, 12, 13, 3.

Possible numbers to use: 10, 1, 3, 11, 14, 1, 12, 4, 11, 14, 2, 3.

Take note that there are 2 numbered 1, 3, 11 and 14.

- Starting at the end of 111412310; there are no 23 or 31 or 0. So the two numbers at the end are 3 and 10. 111412 - 3 - 10.

- To deduce the rest 111412; the possibilities are: 1, 11, 4, 12, or 11, 1, 4, 12 or 11, 14, 12 or 11, 14, 1, 2. Since we need 4 more numbers because there are 6 tubes, we can eliminate 11, 14, 2. We are left with 1, 11, 4, 12 or 11, 1, 4, 12 or 11, 14, 1, 2.

- Since the possibility of 111, 4, 1, 2 or 1/11, 11/1, 41, 2 are not possible. Then the middle number is 12. We are left with 1114 - 12 - 3 - 10.

- To have 3 numbers, the third number will have to be 4.

- We need 2 numbers now: 1/11, 11/1, 4 - 12 - 3 - 10. By process of elimination, found that only #1 pictured pattern matches one of the patterns in tube 1 of the kaleidoscope.

- The deduced sequence of numbers is:  1 - 11 - 4 - 12 - 3 - 10.

The duplicate numbered patterns are also eliminated by checking on that appropriate tube.

Design and sequence of tiles:     Check these designs to recall what pattern to select in the kaleidoscope.

1 is from the corner at Plaza de la Mancha.

11 is from the photo album in Francisco's room.

4 is from the photo album in Francisco's room.

12 is from the secret room in the sewer.

3 is from the Palace at Plaza de la Mancha.

10 is from the wall picture above the desk in the painter's room.

Enter the chosen design on the tube:

Turn the dial with wide tip to position similar to if the dial is on the circle below it - point to one line at the front of the kaleidoscope.

Look through the lens and cycle using the side arrows to select the correct design from picture #1.

Leave the selected design and pull back.

Turn the dial (counterclockwise) with wide tip to point to 2 lines' position (as seen at bottom circle) at the front of the kaleidoscope.

Look through the lens and cycle using the side arrows to select the correct design from picture #11.

Leave the selected design and pull back.

Do the above procedure for 3 lines (#4 picture), 4 lines (#12 picture), 5 lines (#3 picture) and 6 lines (#10 picture).

If the designs are correct and placed in correct sequence, a click is heard and the kaleidoscope opens to reveal the codex.

Take the fourth codex. Read the codex from John Gillam.

Look at the ivory and ebony chess set on the shelf. Take the ivory knight piece (horse head).

Go back out to the courtyard. Give birdseeds to the parrot.

The parrot recites the steps of the Viennese Waltz. Sounds like a route to me.

The parrot says: Forward - left - forward - right - right - left - forward - forward - right - right - forward - left - left - right - left.

Go down the manhole.

Exit:    Look close at the lock. Use the ivory knight piece on the keyhole. It fits! The ivory chess piece will break. We need to make a metal one.

Go forward on any exit to get the map. Exit to Diez-Palencia. Exit the sewer and courtyard.

Arriaga's hideout:

See the stairs to Arriaga's hideout. Climb and go through door.

Professor Hunt is pushed into a cell by Arriaga. Now, Hunt is imprisoned.

Look around the room and see what we can do.

Go to the bag inside the open cabinet. Take the Alquerque board from the sack.

Escape the prison:

Go to right corner and look up. Look close at the grate up in the ceiling. It is quite high. We need to get up there and open the grate.

Look above the open cabinet. See a chain with a hook and a box.

Get the box on top of cabinet:

Pick up a barrel. Turn and place it down one space at a time until it is positioned just in front of the open cabinet.

Pick up the other barrel and place it close to the first barrel.

Pick up the closed box and place it on top of the barrel closest to the open cabinet.

Pick up and place the chair in front of the other (second) barrel.

Climb up the makeshift step by clicking on the box on top of the open cabinet.

Take the rope inside the open box on top of the cabinet.

Take the box on top of the cabinet and bring it down. Lay it on the floor.

Climb back up and take the spade head and broken spade handle from top of the cabinet.

Try to get the chain with the hook. It is too high up.

 

Get the chain on ceiling:

Elevator:     Enter the elevator and read the poster on the wall.

It states that the capacity of the elevator: 2 adults, an adult or half full barrel or an adult and 2 boxes.

Look at the left side of the elevator and see the brake system of the elevator.

Use the broken spade handle on the top of the left-lower wheel to have a makeshift handle.

Release the brake on the left and turn the makeshift handle.

Lower room:    Go to the right side of the elevator.

Take the long pole leaning on the wall.

Take the barrel with cover and place it in the elevator.
