I seem to have somehow trapped myself in this puzzle. I know what I need to do, but I can't get the list for move at all anymore.
I'm on the second level, heading up, but no matter which wheels I turn, or how many I have open or closed, the lift will not move.
From the walkthroughs I've looked at, I gather that I'm supposed to get the pressure up into the red zone, but even with all valves closed, I can't.

Do I need to start this part over again, or is there a way to fix this?

:kthnxbye:

I'd recommend closing all the valves you can, then going down and trying again.

If that doesn't work... is there a saved game you can load from?

How do I go back down? I can't figure that out.

And unfortunately, this is my only saved game, so I'll have to start all over from the beginning if I can't get out of here. T__T

Nothing works. I went though and systematically tried every possible combination of open and closed, and nothing works. I can't get up or down.
Darn. Looks like I'll have to start over. >__<
Serves me right for not maintaining several save files.

Language please.
Family forums, but yes it seems you've encountered a bug. Maybe the patch can help.

Oh! Sorry about that. Just sort of slipped out.

I finally figured out what was wrong. I didn't realize that the lever could be pushed in two directions.
Good grief, it's crazy how little things can get overlooked. Now I feel rather silly.

Thanks for all the help though.

Umm, you could edit your post to fix that which slipped, you know.

I do that with my posts.
A lot.

The same thing happened to me RIGHT AT THE START OF REVELATION! It wasn't even a puzzle...it was at the elevator. I couldn't figure out how to open in so I looked around for something to turn on the power and then i saw it. There was a lever. Just a lever, that was invisible at the time. :kthnxbye:

Doubt they would be kicked out of anything.

Voltaic was my favorite age and I'm not sure why. Still I remember getting stuck on the steam puzzle but eventually got it working. It has to be a bug. :kthnxbye: I guess saving in a million slots has its advantages.

Wouldn't happen. :kthnxbye:

I've never really had any problem with this puzzle. No bugs or anything...*lucky me*
