I have Catherine's journal and I know the number system, but my problem is this, her code in the journal is 5, 1, 1, 5, 5, so any order of the code I enter, nothing happens. Is this the right code? How can it be the same numbers, I thought it should be 5 different numbers, any help would be appreciated? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Have you unlocked the telescope?
Sorry, I can't be more specific - I can't remember exactly what you need to do http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif it's been too long.
There is an unlocking lever thingy low down somewhere.

The code doesn't open the portal automatically - you have to use a little elbow grease.

Cameroon,

Repeated numbers are allowed. When you have the correct code entered, the cursor will change to a hand over the pull handle of the cover. If you play a new game, Catherine's code will change, by the way.

I had repeating numbers too (and it does work), my problem is the sequence was correct and I have opened the portal, pulled the pin, moved the lever but can't seem to break the glass no matter how many times I press the button.

Look to the lower left of the telescope and zoom in. [Oops, sorry, you "pulled the pin" at the lower left? The scope should now keep going DOWN if you keep pressing the button.]

Oh ok, the scope isn't moving at all, I pulled the pin, opened the portal and pulled down the lever and pressed the butoon numerous times but nothing is happening at all.
I have obviously missed something but what???
Thanks for your help.

sapphiremoon,

Does the telescope move UP? If not, you need to power it (it uses steam).

The telescope doesn't move up or down.
Thanks

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gifAll surrounding steam leavers are operational but still nothing, do I need to go to another island? I did try but I can't seem to summon the rail car either.......yikes......what is going on.
any tips on where I might need to search would be greatly appreciated.

There are 4 things you need to operate the telescope. You need to provide steam to it, release the brake, select which direction you want to move it (i.e., up or down), and push the button to make it move. If you push the button and hear a kind of "groaning metal" sound, you either still have the brake on or the telescope can't go any more in that direction. If you push the button and nothing at all happens, it doesn't have steam.

The brake is off and nothing, no noise no movement.
There are only two steam levers near by and they are blowing out steam, I don't know where else to look?????

Aha! If the steam is blowing out the top of the pipe then it is escaping, not being directed to power anything. The one you're looking for has a picture of the telescope on it. Where are the 2 steam pipes you're referring to?
