Re: The Quest for the Sacred Flame of Hestia - Stuck - Help!

Thank's for the help Alex
Good of you to provide clues.
Now I just need to find the sword and dagger!

I know the hatch is a red herring and I know what four items I need to board the Argos it's just getting them all (I currently have two of them).

Re: The Quest for the Sacred Flame of Hestia - Stuck - Help!

Okay, I have the password for the Tavern Back Room
How do I get into it?
I've tried saying it to the landlord, but nothing.
As you can only do 255 commands, I keep having to restart

Across The Stars The Ralckor Incident

Tried to solve this earlier using the solution on CASA, but was constantly killed by pirates. So I took to the web and found a different solution online, which worked - and that's using the Z8 file! I've submitted the alternative solution on the Across The Stars page - my first contribution so I hop...

Hi Exemptus
Following your guide, it still does it on the z5. We'll put it down to it being buggy :)

Nine Dancers

Just completed this - solution on CASA is for Acorn Electron Haven

The 9Dancers.Z5 I just solved follows it closely until it gets to the round barrow.
Solution says CLIMB the ROUND BARROW, but on .z5, just U works. getting down, just D works.
Only minor, but worth pointing out perhaps.

Wizard of Akyrz

Hit a snag following the solution on CASA, using the AKYRZ.Z5 (yes, I know these can be buggy!) S, KILL TROLL, save W, N, DIG, DIG (you find a scepter and a tunnel), GET *SCEPTRE*, SAY RAVEN It seems the troll at this point is actually a goblin to kill. Bigger problem is when I try to get the sceptr...

Savage Island part 1 - no knife?

OK - I've moved onto Savage Island part 1 and hit a snag. I've got to the part where you dive down in the lake to go north and get knife, then swim east and get block. Except - it doesn't know what 'north' is, or 'south', only east & west Of course, you need the knife to cut the vines... So I gave S...

Re: Strange Odyssey - missing section in solution

Thanks Strident. Yes it was the version here on CASA. I was running through it yesterday and couldn't figure out how to get out of the mound. I'd also recommend saving frequently, at least end of each section, as the hound can kill you, not to mention going through the curtain! It was similar with T...

Strange Odyssey - missing section in solution

Hi guys Just completed Strange Odyssey after following the solution for it. However, on the ice planet where the storm is, there is a missing section.. Aha! Now you know what the pick is for! Pick mound (really!), which will bring you inside to where the hound is, as well as a treasure. Shoot hound....

Re: Adventureland.Z5 problem with Genie

Glad to say I ran through the Adventureland(Scott Adams).Z5 adventure and it works perfectly!
Great job Garry - thankyou again for doing this.

Now I can carry on with the rest of Scott Adams adventure series.

Re: Searching CASA

DOH! Sorry guys. Answered my own question.
Of course, there is an advanced search option that lets me look for titles without solutions.. and there are many!
Teach me to look before questioning, lol

Searching CASA

Could I ask for some advice, again? Is there a way to search the CASA database for any adventures that don't have solutions for them? I was thinking I could perhaps do 'my bit' for 'CASA' by trying to solve them myself or look for solutions for them. I'm just blown away by the help you've given me s...

Re: Adventureland.Z5 problem with Genie

Wow! This is brilliant.
Did you take the "floating patch of oily slime"? No - I never did pick this up. I'll give it a try.
I can't believe you have gone to the trouble of re-compiling Adventureland so it works.
I'm thrilled at that.
Thank you all so much for your help.
