View Full Version : I'm Stuck in the swamp forever!!!

05-08-2001, 04:51 AM
Ok, things were going pretty good until I got to this damn swamp. My directions read as follows:
12:05 W 1:50 N
12:40 S 2:35 N
1:10 S 3:10 E
1:20 E 3:15 S

First, I used the clock with the raft. Worked good, got on the the clock to appear in the lower right hand corner. It read 2:35. So I went what I thought was 2:35 N. This put me in front of the gate. The clock in the corner now reads 1:15. I have NO 1:15 in my directions. When I go in front of the gate my option is Open gate. But I need a key. I know that I need to meet Guybrush from the future. But it's jsut not HAPPENING!!! I going nuts! Someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong. Because it HAS to be SOMETHING!! Thanks for your help.

Are you sure your reading the instructions right?? I just checked the map and there was no 2:35 N...

Maybe diffrent game map but... I'd check again.

The directions are different for every game, you're going to need something to tell the time if you don't have it already

You don't reach the gate by only one direction.
Also, at the gate you will meet your future Guybrush.
Try to reload an earlier saved game and get a new direction from Deadeye Dave.

Yes, I'm sure that the directions say 2:35 N. That seemed strange to me, too. Anyway, my instructions seem strange to you guys, too. Maybe I'll try and get something different from Deadeye Dave. Thanks.

Natty, I'm confused. You told me that I'm going to need something to tell the time. But I've already got the clock. What do you mean???

wait a minute....... isn't it supposed to be 3 o' clock where you start at the swamp? because it's always constantly 3 o' clock in every game every where. or maybe that changes in the different games to, but i really think the starting point is 3:00

Argh man =) I mean whats the difference between directions to sail (for 12:45 and 2:45)

The time is for instance 12:05 E and 2:45 W
and means you navigate East at 12:05 and West at 2:45.
East is to the right on your screen.
