Problems in the Petrified Forest

Okay, I'm at the part in the game with the weird tree-machine thingy that Glottis keeps trying to adjust.

I've figured out that you need to push the wheelbarrow over the pipes on the ground, but every time I try to do this, Glottis finishes his adjustments about two seconds later.

I assumed my processor was too fast, and downloaded both the patch and CPU Killer, a program designed to slow down your CPU, but neither affected the game in any way.

So . . . Does anyone know what could be the problem? Do you just need to go really fast, or what?

Please could someone help me? I'm really stuck.

36 views and no replies? I must say I was hoping for a bit more help.

hmm...let's see if I remember. Did you flip that switch that makes Glottis fly around in circles while holding onto the tree for dear life? That should keep him in the machine tree while you distabilize it by moving the wheel borrow over the right pipes.

Ooooooohhhhhh . . . There's another switch? Do you know where it is? Because that would be great.

Anyway, thanks A LOT for helping me on this. It's been driving me crazy!

It should be on the trailer, to the left of your screen toward you. If you can't find it I'll go check it out myself and see what I did.

You can move the wheelbarrow over the pipes before you get Glottis to do his adjustments. Get the pumps going in the right way, then flip the switch

Thanks for responding.

I guess I had it so firmly in my mind that it was a processor problem, I never thought about alternate solutions. Thanks for the help.
