Hrumph!! <sadface>

Post by Jubbahey on Sat 20 Aug 2011 - 23:59

OK, so my Holmes game died because not a lot of people use Firefox to browse the WWW, which is sad, but hey, thats the spice of life, variety.

so instead, I am now going to point you in the direction of the source of all my frustrations.... (I hereby disclaim all responsibility for your sanity if you follow the link)

(don't forget to scroll down all pages to see messages and info, if any)

Use this thread to seek help if you need any hints etc.

Its wickedly difficult, you may have to get help once you get to level 3.

Seriously, the guy who put this together is very, very, VERY...clever.

I haven't ever got beyond L.5 on my own. and that took about a month. In the end, it was too difficult as I was not an .html brain compliant person.

Ce La Vie.

Having said that, I may try to refloat my Holmes skit, albeit in a slightly different guise, thereby making it a bit easier for all you IE users out there.

And if I get the balance right, it may even teach you about .html and web page investigating powers......using the mouse !

We shall see.

Tell me that tomorrow, when you can't get past Level4. I'm here if you need help though (you won't be the last or the first to seek help in this game)

Yes I can....it says stop being so negative.....it flashes so quickly tho' that it took ages to work out what it said.

Have I got to turn something on?

Stop being so negative, so start being positive, opposites Sol. Look for things to change from one to the opposite.

PS, how did you get to Level 3 ?

Thanks Jubba.....will take another look tomorrow.

To get to level 3, I simply changed the 2 to a 3 in the address bar.

Ignore that Jubba, used google and lucky me got a spoiler, so made L5. I like this game very much Will try and avoid spoilers though. I agree the person who designed this is very very clever...

Hi Sol, yeah used the hint Jubba gave to you. L4 is hard though, only got lucky with a spoiler. I'll leave L5 till after the Murray match.

Sol, to get to level 3 you must have changed the web address, ie, there is the word false in there, just edit it to true and you go to the next level.

Smae thing with Level 3, look to the web address/bar.

MTS1, level 5 needs a bit of work and hopefully you'll see why the google link is there.

Hint, what is there is the darkness ?

Please refer to my previous entry where I said I like this game A lady's prerogative is to change her mind. And I have. I hate this game Way above my level of computer intelligence. Followed walkthrough guides to level 10, realised with each level up that I know not a jot about html, source code, encrypted jargon. So I hereby declare I'm outta there. For fellow Andy fans if you have not given it a try, word of warning, it will damage your sanity. I am now off to play a more mentally kind game of solitaire......

LOL, Join the "L" club like me MTS1, I never got past 10 I think, it became clear that I haven't got the patience or knowledge to take it any further, I was hoping someone might go further than me.

Listening to you and SOl, I think may try again with the sherlock thread, but go a different route and use logic rather than html knowhow to get to the next level.

At least you have a taster of what is possible to look at in your browser, which is interesting enough, to see the inner workings of a web page.

Good luck Sol !!!
