INTRODUCTION

While I'm playing this wonderful game, I notice that there is a different path. I'll mention that way as details as possible without ruining your games under sub chapter 'ALTERNATIVE WAY'. You don't have to use this way to finish the game, but if you're adventorous enough, you might want to try that way ...... For those who want to finish the game as soon as possible, just read the main path ...... Let's begin the game.

You start the game with a voice message from your strange friend, Prof. Krick. After you heard his message (that's the third message on your phone) about his daughter, Amanda, you'll be ready to go. Peek through the window and see that thunderstorm hits the LIGHTHOUSE ......

 

THE KIDNAPPING

Main Goals : Chase the strange creature to another dimension

Office

Q : What should I do first ?
A : Get your journal from inside the drawer. Move the chair that block your way to open the drawer. Don't forget to pick up your lighter from inside the red box. Grab that hand bag and umbrella on the coat hanger.

Q : Where is the car's key ?
A : It's hidden in your desk drawer. Move everything aside and you'll find your key underneath.

 

Lighthouse

Q : Where is the key to unlock the front door ?
A : It's under one of the four things around the door mat below the door (it's just use the random order). Move it and pick up the door key.

Q : It's dark here. Where is the light ?
A : Turn on the generator first. The key to unlock the door is hidden inside the lantern beside the main door (to the left of it). Open the circuit box and pull down the leftmost 2 levers. The other lever is not working now. Maybe later. Don't forget to take the crowbar.

Q : What should I do inside the study room (the first room on the right) ?
A : You'll find several useful things on the shelf, a hidden safe behind the books on the bookshelf at the back (it's on the second shelf), a strange box inside the roll-top desk and a letter opener inside the right drawer of the roll-top desk. Grab all the toys on the shelf. You could pick up : the wooden bird, red leaves, and the bee.

The Wall Safe

 

Q : What is the combination to open the hidden safe ?
A : It's written on the Krick's letter. Pick the letter from the mailbox outside. Open it with the letter opener. The combination number is 5-18-28. To open the safe, just do this step. First, clear the combination lock by turning it 360 degree. First turn right until it reach 5, turn left until it pass 5 and stop at number 18, finally turn right until it reach 28. If you do it right, it will open automatically.

Q : What is the combination number to unlock the lab's door ?
A : It's written on one of the diary sheet (page 59) inside the roll-top desk. The number is : 8-24-96.

Q : The baby is crying. What should I do ?
A : Give her the milk bottle. It's inside the fridge. Get the toy on the floor (this is important), the clock on the dresser, and the diary sheet on the table. You could go back to the living room again to pick up the compass from the bookshelf. There is also a journal on the counter in front of the fridge.

Q : The creature kidnaps the baby. What should I do ?
A : There are 2 ways to overcome this problem. You could just chase the creature to the porthole or you might want to try the harder ways and more adventorous. Both ways will meet again at the beach near the tower. If you chase the creature, he'll hit you when you turn around on the other side of the porthole. You wake up on the beach.

THE TOWER

Main Goals : Find a way to reach The Temple

When you first arrive on the beach, don't forget to take the message in the bottle to your left. It'll be usefull later on ..... It mentions about some coordinates : 20 degree north and 118 degree west.

Q : How could I lower the gate to the tower ?
A : Pick up the rod at the pier's end. Go to the tower. Open the left keyhole. Insert the rod in it, then manipulate the small white hook in the machine to raise the other small hook on the lower left corner. Look at this picture to help you.

Q : How could I pass the iron bird on the top of the tower ?
A : Look at your soldier toy in your inventory. Release its key. Insert the key to your bird toy. Put the toy into the cuckoo clock. Now move the pendulum. It will chime 3 times and the iron bird will fly away.

Q : How could I prevent the bird man from taking the submarine controller arm from the desk ?
A : Try to lock him out. Get the big yellow key from the desk drawer (it's the one on the lower right corner). Move the small screw and the wood panel to reveal the key. Close the window and use the key to lock it. That will do it. Now you could open the middle drawer and take the controller.

Q : Where is the key to unlock the top right drawer ?
A : It's hidden between the files inside the lower left drawer. Try to flip the files around and you'll see a small yellow key in between. Unlock the top right drawer and take the whistle. This whistle could be used to call your bat flight later on the game as an option.

Note : Pick up the medallion on the death body nearby. It'll be needed later.

Q : How could I get that blue light bulb shape machine part on the desk ?
A : Uh huh, you have to move around several items to get that part of the machine. Do this sequence : move the transparent and orange vases on the middle right opening to other places on the desk. One can go beside the skull and the other can be placed beside the brown vase on the left. Click on the opening where the vases were. Now slide over the left shelf and take the light bulb shaped object.

 

The desk in study room

Q : How could I lower the ladder on one corner of the room ?
A : You need a remote control for that. There's one inside the working room on the lower level of the tower.

Q : The bird man close the door, how could I get into the working room ?
A : Pick up several stones from the beach. You could find 5-6 of them lying on the sand. Throw the stone to the bird man and while he's losing his balance, throw another stone to the lever next to him. Quickly get into the room and lock him out from the room if you want. If you don't lock him out, he'll fly back to the room to destroy the remote control. But don't worry, even if he smash the remote control you still could repair it. You just have to pick up the part that flew out from the remote control (it's on the table).

Q : How could I repair the remote control ?
A : You have to pick up the coil first from the top left drawer of the desk in the study room above. Move all the components so you could see the coil. Take it and go back to the working room. Get the 4-head wrench and also the nuts and bolts from the bench. Put the remote on the bench where the drill is. Use the drill to open the remote. Use the wrench to loosen both of the coil locks (on the lower part of the remote). Replace the coil (if the bird man smashed the remote, you should put back the antena again on the top of it). Close it and it's ready to use. Go back up and use the remote to lower the ladder.

Q : How could I operate the bat flight in the attic ?
A : Take the L-shape key from the bench. Open the controller on the back side of the attic. Pull down the lever. It will make one of the bat flight roll down to the ramp. Get the gear on the floor and also the crank on the pole. Insert the gears to their places. Use the crank on it. Turn the crank to the right until it roll back again to the opposite direction (it should take 13-14 turns). Open the cockpit and you're ready to fly. Pull down the lever on the left side, and you'll fly to .......

 

THE TEMPLE

Main Goals : Find a way back to your dimension

When you first arrive here, don't forget to take some gems lying on the beach. Maybe they'll be usefull later. Open the elevator and hop in. You'll be transported directly to the temple.

Q : What should I do with this strange pod in the rightmost room ?
A : Look at this picture to help you. Touch right bells (1), then left (2). It will open the pod's eye. Touch the right bells (1) one more time. It will operate the pod completely. Now manipulate the left and right lever (5) so you could pull down the big middle lever (3). Touch the left bells (2) right bells (1), and left bells again. Finally move the lever (4). A disk will be dropped down.

Q : What should I do with the disc ?
A : Go to the left most room and put the disc on the green tray. Play the disc. You'll see the vision of Lyril. She'll explain everything that happens in this strange temple.

Q : What should I do with Lyril, the girl on some kind of strange transportation, inside the middle room ?
A : Talk to her. Give her the nuts and bolts from the working room in the tower. Show her the message in the bottle also. She'll tell you to build a strange machine to defeat Dark Being. To build this machine, you have to find its parts that scattered around the dimension. After that, go to the left control panel. Move things a little bit and when you pull down the lever all the way to the left and then pull down the main lever, a bird man will show. He tries to attack Lyril. Now, use the lever to catch the bird man. Lower the magnet so it could attract the bird man. Now Lyril will thank you and allow you to operate the middle control panel.

Q : What should I do in the lower chamber ?
A : Pick all the components you could get. There should be 5 of them. You combine 3 components from the crate to build a device. The other 2 are the parts for building the final device to defeat Dark Being. Pull the left and right lever on the control panel there and you'll see a picture of a volcano and its coordinates. Memorize this. Don't forget to take the drawing also. This drawing will help you to activate the transporter in the upper room.

Q : How could I operate the transporter in the upper chamber ?
A : This is a little bit complicated. But let me show you the way. The machine will be divided into 3 parts : The Power Modules, The Main Control Panel, and The Coordinates Panel. The Main Control Panel is divided into 3 parts: LEFT Controller, UPPER Controller, and LOWER Controller. First go to the Power Modules on the left panel. Plug in the leftmost module. Go to the main control unit (LEFT Controller) and pull the main, center breaker (has 4 red lights beside it). Move to he UPPER part (left picture below) and flip the large switch to the right of the breaker. Now head into Coordinates Panel and turn on the right monitor. It has a couple of dials. Turn the first dial until you see a picture of the lighthouse. Turn the second dial until you see a picture of Krick's laboratory. Click the small, black button on the second dial to set the destination. The screen will change to black with red cross on it. Now the destination has been set. Now you have to map the coordinates. Turn to Main Control Panel.

UPPER part of Console

LOWER part of the console

Look at the LOWER part of the center console (right picture). Pull the large, left lever down (to extends platform) and then pull the right lever (to opens roof). Push the lower, left button (to power the lower monitor) and align the lines on the screen with the center of the circle by using the four control knobs around the monitor. Pull down the two small levers at the top of the monitor. Pull the small breaker at the bottom right of the monitor (it will reset itself). Pull the large, slider lever (on top) to the right. Watch the gauge carefully. Click on the slider lever again as soon as the gauge is on the red line (must be exactly on the red line...not below or above but ON the red line). If it goes past the red line the unit will blow. Pull the breaker under the monitor again. The porthole will be created on the platform. Go into the porthole.

 

THE STRANGE BOX

Main Goals : Open this strange box and retrieve the first machine part

Q : What should I do to open the strange box ?
A : Turn it around and click on the spinner on one of the sides. It will open a secret room with wooden blocks. Click on the light colored blocks starting from the top to bottom, left to right. Work your way down and from. Once these are set, you can slide some of the lower blocks to open a secret compartment with red button in it. Look at picture 1 to help you. Press this button. Another part of the box will open to display a large, red button. Click it. Turn the box around and click on the small, gray button. Then click the red button one more time. It will open a hidden drawer with key inside it. Take the key. Click the red button one more time, another panel will open slightly. Click on the brown square button on the lower right corner of the opening (you might have to turn the box slightly to see this button. A picture puzzle will reveal. Solve this terrible slide puzzle. Look at picture 2 to help you. By the way, you could look at your journal to see what kind of picture you should build from this puzzle (it's the Hawk picture). Memorize the symbol on the result paper, picture 3.

Picture 1

Picture 2

Note : You might want to use this cheat to solve the slider puzzle. When the panel to this puzzle open, exit to the long shot of the dek. After doing this 4 times, a message box with "Solve It" sentence on it will appear. By clicking it you'll bypass those horrible puzzle. Nice touch ...

Q : Is it all done with this strange box ?
A : Nope, it's just half of it. Turn the cube again and click on the spinner. It will activate another gray button. Turn the cube again and click the gray button. Another compartment will open. Click all four blue plates and then click the lower fish symbol. Click the button. Now, click the gray buttons (there are 4 of them) and then click on the upper fish symbol. Insert the key into the keyhole. A disk shape will comes out from the hidden panel.

Picture 3

 

Picture 4

Q : What should I do with the disc symbol ?
A : Insert the medallion from the tower and the 2 red leaves from the shelf in the lighthouse. It will reveal some kind of mechanism. Now align all the pictures to form the same pictures from top to bottom (you may want to do this 4 times for different pictures -- see picture below to help you). Each time you choose the right pictures (it's in random order), you'll hear a click sound. After all 4 different combination form (some parts of the mechanism will be opened), Use the combination from picture 3 above to unlock the mechanism. You'll get a strange machine part. Take it. Now it's time to move back to the tower. Head back to the lab and this time you'll need to activate the porthole.

Q : I try to turn on the computer on the desk. There is an error. What should I do ?
A : See that machine just beside the cage. Open its control box. Click on the button to activate it. Now you could try the computer again.

Q : Ooopps, the computer couldn't be initialized. Now what ?
A : Get the soldering gun, the memory tube, and a piece of wire on the workbench. There is also a journal here if you want to read it. Open the compartment like a stove in front of the computer. Change the wire and insert the tube. Solder both the wire's end with the soldering gun. Try the computer again.

Q : Now it needs a power suply. How could I fix that ?
A : Look at the red toolbox on the floor. Pry the lid open with the crowbar twice. Get the fuse inside. Examine the right panel, just in front of the computer. Pull down all the switches there. Pull down the lever. It will raise some kind of equipment. Climb up the ladder to the attic. Hit the lock 3-4 times with the crowbar to open it. Go up and open the strange equipment. Change the fuse. Look up. Hook the electric plug. Go down again to the lab. Get out from the lighthouse and go to the generator cabin. Pull down the lever. The power is fixed now. Now you're ready to operate the computer. Reset the computer, then turn around, pull down another lever on the panel. A porthole will appear nearby. This is your door to the other dimension. Enter it and you'll arrive on the beach near the tower.

 

THE SUBMARINE

Goals : Use the submarine to go to the volcanoe

When you reach the tower again, you have to go directly to the underwater cave and try to operate the submarine to reach the volcano that Lyril mention about .......

Q : How could I open the under water gate ?
A : Look at this picture to help you. First, you have to operate that machine to move the weights to the weight holder. Use the left-right controller to move the machine from side to side and top-down lever to lower and raise the lifter. Then use the machine again to raise the lock. That's it !!! You've opened the gate.

Q : How could I enter the submarine ?
A : Use the controller on the port. Turn the wheel to the left side and quickly block it with the rod provided on the controller.

Special Note : Due to the known bugs, DON'T try to open the submarine while using the compass. You'll be thrown away to Windows. Close the compass first then you could open the hatch safely.

Q : What should I do to start the engine ?
A : Go to the front of the sub and turn the ignition key which is under the wheel. Insert the submarine control arm in the small, cylindrical tube to your right. Now you've repaired the throttle control arm. There are 3 keys here on the left part of the panel (from top to bottom): engine, navigation, and diving. The two keys to the right control the door locks. The first one is for the bridge door and the second is for the engine room doors. Turn both to upright position to lock the doors. Make sure both are in the upright position at all times. Note that the three keys to your left are in the off position when facing you. You will often lose all power if you turn all three system on at the same time. Turn only the bottom key on for now. Now you're ready to dive.

Front of the sub

Diving unit

Q : I want to dive now .... What should I do ?
A : Go to the middle part of the sub and click on the diving unit to your right. The flashing light indicates that the power is on. Pull the two small levers down. Spin the left wheel. When the water reaches the blue line, quickly spin the second wheel. The sub will dive. Go back to the front of the sub. Now turn on your engine power key (top key). Go to the back of the sub and open the door by spinning the left wheel. Go into the engine room. Blue lights and steam indicate the power is on. Pull the large right lever to start the engines. Now that the main engines are running, you may turn on the navigation key.


The Engine room

Q : How could I set the coordinates ?
A : Go to the center of the sub. There are a few small tubes beside the navigation control pad. The tube to the right has a map in it. The map contain the coordinates to the Ship Wreck (it's almost identical to the map on the beach earlier, but more accurate). Click on the globe beside the navigational control pad. A monitor will appear. Pull down the left lever on top of the control panel, then enter 20.67 (for east coordinates). Click on the right lever and enter 118.96 (for west). Now press enter. The new position to the Ship Wreck is now displayed on the monitor. When you're done, return to the front of the sub and pull the throttle. You'll be travelling to .......

Notes : Starting now, when I told you to start the sub, do all of those things again.

 

SHIP WRECK

Main Goals : Find the third machine part

Q : What should I find here ?
A : According to the journal and what has Lyril told you, you've to find several machine parts which are scattered in 5 different places. So far, you have collected 3 of them. This is the third place to look. Find the abandoned ship with a metal safe in it. Your first part will be inside the safe.

Q : How to reach the ship ?
A : Use your mini-submarine. Go to the middle part of the submarine and climb down the hatch. Look up and pull the lever next to the hatch to lock it. Pull the other lever to release the mini-sub lock. Look down and turn to right. Pull the diving lever to release the mini-sub from the submarine.

Q : Where is the safe ?
A : Before you go to the safe location, you have to upgrade your mini-sub's robotic arm first. To activate the arm, Pull the arm switch on the lower right of the window. A control panel will appear on the upper right of your window. For the sub movements, the ball in the center directs the sub and the left control arm activates the motion. You must click on either side of the ball (NOT on the ball).

Q : Where is the part I needed to upgrade my robotic arm ?
A : Do these actions : Ball --> right and pull the lever, pull the lever, Ball --> right and pull the lever, Ball --> right and pull the lever, Ball --> right and pull the lever, pull the lever one more time. The mini sub will be over the opening in the front of the boat. Pull down the diving lever again (it's to your right). Inside the wreck, Ball --> left twice until you see a hook on the wall. Use your controller to grab the hook. Note : if you have downloaded the patch, it'll be easier for you to control the arm. Everytime you reach the exact position when you could grab something, a red light will flash on the top of your window. Look at this picture to understand what I meant.

Q : Now, where is the safe ?
A : Pull up the diving switch to ascend. Once you are out of the ships hold, do these movements: Ball --> left and pull the lever, Ball--> left and pull the lever, pull the lever, Ball --> left and pull the lever, Ball--> left and pull the lever, pull the lever, You will see a skull. Pull down your dive switch again to ascend. Turn the sub once to the left. You will see a safe here.

Q : How could I open the safe ?
A : There are two pieces of wood against the safe. Use the robot arm to remove the lower one (hard to see). Now turn the sub to the left once. You must now put the hook (at the end of the remote arm) into the hole in front of the sub. Once you get it in, the second piece of wood will fall away. Use the arm to open the safe and then to retrieve the item inside. The mini sub will return to the main submarine. Now set your coordinates to the Fortress (it's on the middle of your coordinates monitor), push enter and go directly to .............

 

THE ABANDONED FORTRESS

Main Goals : Find the fifth part of the machine

The fortress has 2 towers in it. In one of the tower you'll find an ancient aeroplane. You can use this aeroplane (after you fix it) to fly back to the temple where Lyril was. Inside the second tower, you'll also find a small black key to unlock the secret compartment on the base of the statue in the first tower. Unfortunately, a monster blocks your way to the second tower. First, you have to think the way to kill this monster...

Q : On the lower floor, I see a dark path on one of the corner. What should I do inside ?
A : You've to build a bridge to cross the chasm. This will lead you to the blacksmith place where you could find something to kill the monster.

Q : How could I activate these machines ?
A : You have to start the generator first. Go to the back room where the generator is. Pull the left lever to raise the windmills. Turn left and pull down the lever to connect the gear. If somehow you make the gear damaged, you could get the extra gear to replace it, inside the working room (it's inside the wooden box on the floor belowe the cutting machine). Turn right again and pull down the right lever to start the windmills. Now the power is set.

Q : How could I make the bridge ?
A : Use the cutting machine to get 2 long board and the other cutting machine (with bird head figure on it) to get 4 short board. Now go back to the dark path and put the long board on the chasm.

Q : The monster destroy the bridge before I could build one. What should I do ?
A : Try to distract him first. If you look outside through the window in the working room, you'll see the dark being playing with monster with a fish. First, get a fish from the fishpole outside at the pier. Then head into the upper floor. Climb the ladder again into the third floor, the tower. Look up and you'll see a hook. Put the fish on it. Now go down again and look through the window. You could scroll down and up to see a better view. You should wait until you see the monster climb the stair to the tower. To see this you might have to move back and forth from the window several times. When the monster is out of your sight, quickly back to the dark path and build the bridge using all the boards. Cross the bridge and enter the blacksmith room.

Q : I try to go to the tower again and the monster still there. What should I do ?
A : Kill him first before you go back to the tower. There is a stair leading up to the cannon tower from the blacksmith room. Go up there. Look at the cannon. Get the cannonball, powder keg, and the fuse. Open the cannon and insert the powder and the cannonball (remember, insert the powder first before the ball). Close the cannon and put the fuse on it. Unlock the cannon by picking up the metal key on its base. Move it to the right twice. Look at the tower where the monster is and light up the fuse by using your lighter. Kaaabooommm ... the monster is gone forever.

Q : How could I open the secret compartment on the base of this white marble statue ?
A : Get the key on the table at the second tower where the aeroplane is. Unlock the compartment and get the fifth part. Return to your submarine and head directly to ............

 

Alternative Way

Q : How could I fix the broken aeroplane ?
A : You should use the furnace in the blacksmith place to make the part to replace the broken part on the aeroplane.

Q : How to start ignite the furnace ?
A : Get the woods and the coals. Put them inside the furnaced and light it with your lighter.

Q : How to make the part ?
A : Get the metal rods from the box and the casting mold from the table. Put the mold on the center of the furnace table. Put all the rods into the iron bucket and pull the right lever to move it into the furnace. Wait for 20-30 seconds. Then pull back the bucket. Turn left and push the button to pour the melting rods into the mold. Pull the left lever to move the mold into the water. When it's cooled down, pull the lever back and open the mold. Get your part.

Q : Where should I use this part on the aeroplane ?
A : Look closely to the side of the aeroplane. You'll find a broken hook there. Pick it up and change it.

Q : How to fly this aeroplane ?
A : First, plug in the gas hose on the back of the plane by sliding the tuner to the (+) sign. The turn the crank to the right until the pointer move 360 degree. Then, pull the lever on the right to release the plane. Open the cockpit and hop in. Opedn the controller on your left, turn the crank, and pull the throttle on your right. You'll arrived at the Temple soon.

 

THE VOLCANO

Main Goals : Release Amanda

Q : Where is the location of the Volcanoe ?
A : You must have seen it somewhere ..... Hmnmmm... yup, the Temple. Turn on the engine, pull the main engine lever, then remember that picture and enter its coordinate on your coordinate system. Its : 22.01 (east) and 119.11 (west). Pull your throttle and watch the scene ...

Notes : When you arrive inside the volcanoe, you notice that the Dark Being is expecting you here. Look at his presence when you turn around and face that high cave window.

Q : How could I open the lock on that iron gate ?
A : Get the iron cutter and the dynamite from the compartment on the site of the drilling car (just beside of the door). Use the cutter to cut loose the lock. Open the gate.

Q : How could I operate this drilling machine ?
A : When you enter the car, turn left and push the button to start the power. Turn around and look at the dashboard. See this picture to help you. Use the right lever on your right to control the movement of this car, up means forward and down means backward. The red button is to start the engine.

Internal View of the cockpit

 

Q : What should I do first ?
A : Try to find the Dark Being laboratory. Use the movement controller to go forward until it reaches a big platform. Stop the train when it does. Click the red exterior view button on the lower level corner. Look at the green machine. Click on it. Pull the lever to raise the platform. Now continue move forward until the red button appears again. Stop. It will come on inside a large tunnel with three tracks. Click on the red button and click again on the wooden box. Get the rod inside. Click on your compartment, get the wrench. Click on the switching box post in the tunnel and insert the metal rod. Use your wrench to tighten the rod. It will raise the power of the switcher boxes. Continue your journey to the main intersection (platform). Stop. Click on the red button. Now, use your compass. Click on the wooden pillar. Crank the handle 360 degree then click outside the crank window to rotate your train. Do this move again until you face North. Move forward. Switch the track changer before you reach the intersection (when the red light beside the changer flashes). You'll go to the left track. The Dark Being will show and throw some rock to block your track.

Q : How could I remove the rock ?
A : Use your dynamite on the boulder and light it. Kaboooommm .... continue your journey until it stop automatically. To your right is the door to the Dark Being laboratory. Alas .. it's locked.

Q : Now I've seen Dark Being, but where is Amanda ?
A : Get back into the train and reverse back to the main intersection. Rotate the train by using the handle so that it faces east. Go forward. When you reach an intersection, go pass it a little bit. Stop the train and reverse. Quickly change track and follow the left track (still in reverse movement). You'll have to do this act quickly. It will stop automatically. Exit the train and enter the room. Wait ..... that's Amanda !!!

Q : I have to release Amanda, but how ?
A : Look at the picture. Lever A will release Amanda, but it's out of power now. You have to repair it. If you pull down switch B, it'll open a gate behind Amanda's cage (this will unblocked your way to the power room). You could proove this thing by this way : turn right and use your umbrella on the hole on the metal door (the top hole). It'll jam the door temporary. Go through the door and see that the gate behind Amanda is opened. Now get back to your train (don't forget your umbrella).

Q : What should I do to repair the lever ?
A : Go back to the main intersection and rotate your train to face North. Go forward and take right track. Keep on following the track until it stop. Exit the train. Go through the door and look over the edge. You'll see a nachine there. That's will help you to fix the lever.

Q : How could I get in the machine ?
A : The controller is on your right side. Look at the broken bridge. Use your umbrella to hook it back (you have to use your umbrella from your purse or else you could only open the umbrella not using it). Quickly attach the small hook on the bridge so it won't loose again. This small hook is at the right edge of the broken bridge. Move forward and pull the lever to lift the machine. Get inside the machine and pull the right lever down to lower it.

Q : What should I do with this pipe ?
A : If you look at the map on the wall outside it will show you which pipe is for which lever/room. You'll see 6 arrows from top to bottom. Change the direction of the first, second, four, and six. It will open a recess down there. Go down and take the final part of the machine (the mighty cannon). On the way back up, you have to push back the first, second, fourth, and six arrows to their positions. I know this is the pain in tha A** but you have to do it anyway. Now back to valve room outside and turn valve C, F and D. Valve C will fix the lever and valve F and D will open the Dark Being lab's front doors. Now go back again to Amanda'a place.

Note : Here is the route back in case you forget. Reverse your way back to the main intersection. Rotate the train to face east. Go forward a little bit at the intersection, stop, and quickly reverse and flip the lever to change track. You'll be back at Amanda's place again.
