Help!!! I have followed the directions according to the walkthrough a dozen times and still cannot get that stupid box open. Can anyone help me?
You should have looked at the star chart on the wall straight ahead from the door - turn the pages until you get to the one labeled Bruma - Winter Solstice and the longest night.
You should see the same animals on it that you see on the box and note their positions relative to North, South, East and West -
Draco (dragon) - North
Leo (lion) - East
Lepus (rabbit) - South
Pisces (fish) - West
the Lynx is in the center
Then you should have taken a close look at Brigitte's Coat of Arms over the fireplace - on the upper right side you should see -
North - Full Red
East - Red on left side, Black crescent on right
South - Green on right half, Black on left half
West - Blue on right side, Black crescent on left
Center - all black
When you first see the box, you see Leo (lion) on top, the Lynx on the right and Draco (dragon) on the left - "pick" up the box and using the above information, click on the right button to open each panel, the left button to change the metal piece and the slide on the right to change the color -
Lynx - click left button until completely covered
Dragon - click left button until completely uncovered and slide until the color is red
Rabbit - click left button until metal covers the left half and slide until the color is green
Fish - click left button until crescent is on left side and slide until the color is blue
Lion - click left button until crescent is on right side and the color should already be red
Between each side - move the cursor down to the bottom of the screen until it turns into the "Back" arrow, click once then click on the next side you want to work on or move the cursor to the side of the box until it turns into the "Circle" arrow and click to turn the box.
When you've changed all five sides to what is described above, the box should open.
