Well done on getting the motive, eddy :up:
You use it on the laptop in the Staff Office but you have to stand at the side of the comp to get the action - for reasons that will be clear (otherwise Lara would block the view.)

The Walkthrough should be out this weekend but for those of you who prefer to soldier on without it - but are finding this a bit confusing with all that inventory build up etc, - I offer some clarifications below:


The core of the game is to find 9 Cluedo Room items and 6 suspect weapons. See Lara’s notes in the download folder to see what’s what with that.

The Room items are all used in one location.
The Weapons are tested in another single location.

None of these items are required to allow you to progress through the level - until the end when you compile your crime report.

====================

However, there are important milestones that need to be passed in order for you to progress and these are listed below:

Getting the Walkie-talkie.
Dealing with the security cameras.
Freeing Goldie from her cage.
Getting the (full) carpet cleaner.
Getting the Key to the Crypt.

====================

There is also a big secrets challenge that overlaps all this and that will ultimately lead you to getting the motive.

:bobby:

I picked up the book from the library, but now I can't get back out because either of the two officers always notices me... even following the walkthrough doesn't help.

Just be very careful. Don't go back the way you came into the Library (you only get lucky once there). When you come in and sprint behind the bookcase, walk very slowly left around the corner of the bookcase and slowly to the book. Go back behind the same bookcase, stand well back and then sprint to the other end of the Library. You'll reach brown stairs. (in case you need help, give me a save before the library)

You are stuck alright. I was confused for a while but now I get it when I saw the revolver in your inventory - you have already been through here once.

from an old save:
After the revolver return via the shallow marble steps and find another button low on the book shelves (near the desk) and that will give you access to a secret passage that will allow you to reach the book without crossing the cops.

Thanks, luckily I had an earlier save. Maybe it could've be prevented to return via the "normal" way there, so that only the path through the secret bookcase passage is possible, but it's perhaps seldom enough that someone behaves just the way I did :D

I am stuck. I can`t find any more rooms but there must be some rooms waiting for investigation. The police prevents Lara from going into areas where I haven`t been to until now. How can i go on ? Lara is here and waiting for instructions:

My save 3, I turned right from your save... went straight and then a bit left and you are in the cousins room, go straight through, right up the blue tiled staircase and find more doors to open

This may or may not have been mentioned already but do you remember the room where it's dark and Lara can get inside and find the spanner? Well, how can she get out? Since I didn't find anything in the previous room just beside it, I thought maybe there would be some passage but if there is one I can't see it.

You just have to get out the same way as you got in.

Oh... Easier said than done. :anxious:

Thanks. :)

EDIT: "Attention! There's an intruder on the premises! Sound the alarm!", screamed the bloody copper time and time again. Finally, he said that but Lara wasn't stopped after all, I guess I must have been lucky...
