TC-Isle Puzzle

Post by Bravelionheart07 »

Hey. Love the level so far, but I'm stuck at the puzzle inside the mines, with the dynamite. I know you need a detonator, but which one? I'm leaning towards the one with both black cylindars on top, but I'm not sure. And I also don't know how to set it up so I can blow the dynamite up and continue on. The walkthrough, while detailed everywhere else, didn't really explain it. Am I missing something painfully obvious?

Yea, only one of the detonators is any good (I think that'd be the one resting on the wooden skid.

Just before the dynomite you'll note the debris pile and 2 wires protruding up out of it. Carefully lower the detonator directly in front of the wires. Duck, while connecting 1 wire at the time.... That's it.

I keep trying but the game refuses to work, or Anne will tip over the detonator, and I'll end up having to spend minutes setting it up again. This is quickly becoming an irritating puzzle. XD

Can someone maybe post a pic of where exactly it needs to be? I keep trying but when I duck and grab onto the wires, they don't bend to connect. ~.~

If you're knocking over the detonator, it's either the wrong one or it's being placed in the wrong location. Once the correct detonator enters the correct sphere (unseen location trigger), the detonator is set at its proper location and frozen, so it can't be moved. From that point, the wires can only be pulled straight down and they're prealigned for attachment.

Sorry, don't have time to post up a pic....

I'm playing TresCom Ops Level (Act I). I enjoyed it much until... now, as I'm stuck. I was exploring the area. Finally I got to build where I opened door to Hammond's office. I took briefcase. Outside I met and killed albertosaurus. That's all. I belive I explored whole area but still there is no way to open gate to get to balloon. When I go in opposite direction to another gate, I can get behind it but level is ending and retail lev The Lab starts. What should I do?

That's the alternate ending to the level... so, not really a problem.

If you can't get inside the walled complex, I think there's a walkthrough here at TresCom...

Yeah, I never did break that door open.... It is possible to walk around the side of the wall to get in. I think someone had to tell me you could do that.

"Well, as long as you're under there, you can check the breakers," Thorne said. ... "There's a box right behind the front bumper. Over on the left."
"I see it." [said Sarah]
...
"The box is in backward. Flip all the switches the other way. Are you dry?"
"No, Doc. I'm soaking wet, lying in the damn mud."

Lmao :lol: I got quite frustrated at that door, so I tossed the hammer at it.
