View Full Version : Stuck in Ahonay

[Spoiler] I'm almost fininshed Ahonay. I got the relto page, got to the chair, went down to Kadish room and *CRASH*! There's no movement, nothing. Arrrgggghhh!

Now I can't get back. When I link out to Control Room 4 I'm faced with a locked door on the ledge, nevermind getting to the inner door.

My shell marker now goes to Control Room 1 and the picture goes to watery Ahonay. What do I do now?

I need an outright spoiler telling me where to pick up next to get to Kadish room. I've tried several things but nothing is working.

This is the second time I've been to the Kadish room, so it's a little different from the other post regarding this. I'll be really *pi--ed* if I have to start the world over!

We'll You're in watery Ahnonay, so Just cycle the spheres again. Did you leave the door open in the tower?

If you left the door open in the tower, just swim out there, flip the switch, swim to the exit. Run around to touch the cloth, then flip the switch by the door. Link out and back in with the cloth.

If the door not open in the tower. Go back through until you can get back into it, then repeat the steps above.

Good luck. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thanks Kest. I left off playing last week and can't remember if I had to touch the shells in the alternate worlds to get to Control Room 4 or only the one on the Space Ahonay.

Well, that's it for me. After running around and linking like a madwoman, I sit in the chair, pull the lever, go to the first stop and the relto book flashes and I'm back in Relto. Clicking on the shell link brings me back to the locked door in Control Rm 4.

I've had it with this POS "game". Patch, anyone?

I'm off to play a game that actually works....Aura.

Wow, you really do have a bug. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif There is a Shell cloth next to the chair. If you touched that and it still brought you outside, then, yea, just wait for the patch. Might be another month for them to track it down and send out the patch, but you'll definitely enjoy it better once this is fixed. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Have fun with Aura! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Why did that happen to Dara but not to me? When a patch is needed, isn't it needed by everyone? Or are just some people's discs defective, but not others?

Dara, I haven't come across a shell cloth not activating before. Are you sure you pressed the cloth near the chair before you sat in it?

There is a bug with the chair itself that seems to be linked in most cases to ALT-TAB. Can you come back on this?

Mr Z, I did press the cloth and proceeded to the chair and into the tunnel. On the second press I fell into the air as in flying mode when you go through rocks and was locked up with a cursor but no movement. I hadn't heard about Alt-Tab, so didn't try it. I had to hit the window key and kill the game and restart, so I suppose I lost the cloth save when I did so. The second time, I got a black screen and it panic linked to Relto.I have a brand new state of the art machine and this should not have been necessary. This happened twice and each time when I linked to the shell from Relto I was in Control Rm 4 on the ledge with the door locked. I may try this again but for now am very annoyed with this game.

Yes, I agree the game is a "POS" - I asked for and received a refund from the download crew, even though it was outside of the 48 hours.

I cited the unplayability of the game due to the technical issues.

Very disapointed with POTS.

Mr Zebe D
07-26-2004, 04:17 PM
Dara, if you want to pursue this and try and get a fix, you could post a dxdiag report in the tech thread, if you haven't already.

I'm sorry that the game is giving you grief.

Dara100, I felt the same way about Uru when I first got it. Although my issues were less with a buggy, unusable game and more with trying to control running, jumping and shoving with an avatar that seemed to have some co-ordination "issues". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif By the time I had finished the Eders and had moved on to Teledahn and that darned bucket ride, I'd had it and very nearly uninstalled it. Maybe a few days away - and a good patch - will help to solve your problems so that you can eventually finish PotS - if for no other reason than to say that you did.

There *almost certainly is* a patch coming btw. Cyan has been publicly asking players to submit bug reports.

Ok, after a good night's sleep and fortification with a nice brunch, I decided to give this another try. Of course I had to do the mad runaround, and when I finally got to the chair room I pressed the shell cloth and exited the game. Re-entering the game, I found that the shell link worked! Then I sat in the chair, descended, held my breath and pressed the lever---once, success---twice, no clipping! yay!--thrice, success! Gingerly I pressed the vertical lever and was ascended! I pressed the shell and hope that I am now quite done with this persnickety age!

Thanks all for your concern and help.

Good for you Dara100! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif It's always a great moment when you can get past a point in a game that has given you grief. Now let's hope that you can play the rest of the game with as little bugginess as possible.

Dara, I hope you enjoy the rest of your journey. It might get frustrating, but just keep a magazine or such nearby.

Congrats for getting to the end of Ahnonay, Dara! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey. Think I've finished Ahonay - got to the final room with the bed and the link to the lower part of the Bahro cave...but if there's a Relto page about, I didn't see it. Where is it?

Mr Zebe D
07-29-2004, 04:25 PM
It's in Ahnonay 2, but you'll need 3 and the shell to get to it.

Thanks. Got it. But I gotta tell you, that was an awful lot of effort for a clock. Linking through the pedestal and relto multiple times...kinda like changing discs in Riven, don't you think?

Mysti Sage
07-30-2004, 06:36 AM
Yes. Ahnonay reminded me al lot of that. Tooooo much linking!!! Oh well. I do think the page is worth it, though. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I'm one of those complete-ist types who has to try everything in a game and often get stuck in places I wasn't expected to try. Have you noticed that in most games it's expected you'll go right before left? I always go left and it leads to some interesting complications and sometimes easter eggs or in this case a relto page.

Kad.
07-30-2004, 02:55 PM
While I was searching after the relto page, the thought came to me that something must be hidden in the Ahnonay #2 tower... I had not read of anybody going there in the forums, and so I thought that perhaps I had thought of a great idea.

I won't spoil you if you want to try it....
