    Chapter 1-3: Green Orb Door

    Chapter 1-3: Church Dial
    Location: In the Village: Behind the Church itself
    Reward: Green Catseye
    Solution: To do this puzzle, you need to roate the dial in this order:
    3-3-3-4-4-4-3 **Thanks to all who told me about an easier solution**

    Chapter 2-1: Crossing the Dam
    Location: Past the Lake, near waterfall area
    Reward: Access to water way
    Solution: Begin by following the south bank until you are able to jump across.
    Now run along the bank to the north and climb down the rope. You can pick up
    some handgun ammo here as well as another item in the barrel. If you look right
    you'll notice an object glittering in the wall. Pick it up the spinel and move
    east. Shoot the chain that is holding a box and move to the center platform.
    Break the barrel for a green herb and again shoot the chains that are holding
    the boxes up nearby. Retrace your steps and jump back over the bank. Head south
    and smash the barrel for a hand grenade. Pull the lever and go back to the
    center platform then into the cave.
    
    Alternate Solution: It is not necessary to shoot the chains to fall the boxes
    from their holding places. You can simply shoot the box itself, and it will
    fall. This will save some ammunition for people who have difficulty hitting 
    the smaller target. - Credit goes to Rick Merchant for this.

    Chapter 2-2: Church Color Light
    Location: Inside Church
    Reward: Ashley
    Solution: Rotate the red light 2 times, the green light 3 times and the blue

    Chapter 3-2: Portrait Puzzle
    Location: Castle: After killing the Cult Member and using the Key
    Reward: Open door to next area
    Solution: Press the numbers in the following order: 1, 3, 2, 4. Choose OK/Quit.
    
    Alternate Solution: At the Portrait Puzle, the riddle for which being:
    "The sacrifice of six will reveal the true path,"  the solution is to add three
    numbers to equal six, then choose a 4th number--the execution/death number--as
    the number 4 to complete the solution.  
    
    You must use all four numbers, add 3 of them to equal six, choose 4 as the 4th
    number, then press "ok."So, the following combinations would work, in addition
    to your working solution:
    
    1234
    
    2134
    3214
    
    2134
    2314
    
    3124
    
    ^^ Sent in by Nicholas.
    
    
    Alternate Solution: For this puzzle, the only things that truly matters is that
    you use each number once and only once. There's no set combination. - Credit
    goes to Rick Merchant.

    Chapter 3-2: Courtyard Garden
    Location: Castle" Courtyard/Garden
    Reward: Moonstone
    Solution: Examine the bedroom doors to find there's an indent in them. Now head
    east to open the gates. Move under the bridge and behind a platform. From there
    go south towards a closed gate. DO NOT OPEN THE GATE! Instead, snipe the dogs
    in the gate. Once they are dead, open the gate and passed the stairs to the
    left. Make your way to the corner for some shotgun shells. Beware, you'll end
    up having to fight after you take the shells. Return to the stairs you passed
    a bit ago and head up them. Go across the bridge then left for some TMP ammo.
    Return to the stairs and head north-east to a fountain area where you'll
    obtain part of a moonstone. Now go back across the bridge towards the kennel
    area. Keep going south-west and then north at the corner. You'll find a yellow
    herb there. Head back a few feet to a zigzag area and head north. Take a few
    steps and go east then south for a Red Gem. Go north from the Red Gem, follow
    the path under the bridge to the north-west corner. Kill the dogs in the kennel
    and go south for a First Aid Spray. Return to the kennel and move east. Ignore
    the gate by keep heading east for a Spinel. Again, head back to the kennel to
    go under the bridge and up the stairs. Collect the moonstone, move east to jump
    off the platform. Return to the main entrance.

    Chapter 3-4: Ashley's Knight Tiles
    Location: Castle: After you set her free
    Reward: Gold Bangle, Spinel, Salazar Family Insignia, Serpent Ornament
    Solution: Move the right-center tile to the center. Now move the top-right
    downwards. Take the top-center to the right and the center tile needs to go up.
    Next the left-center needs to be moved to the center and the bottom-left will
    move up. Now move the bottom-center to the left and the right-center down. Take
    the center tile and move it right. The top-center will need to go down while
    the top-left needs to go right. Take the left-center up and bottom-left up.
    Now move the center down and right-center to the center. The bottom-right can
    be moved up. Insert the tile you picked up earlier.
    
    Another Soultion:
    
    
    |  1  |  2  |  3   |
    |------------------|
    |  4  |  5  |  6   |
    |==================|
    |  7  |  8  |  9   |
    |------------------|
    
    Here goes -  6,3,2,5,4,7,9,6,5,2,1,7,8,5,6,9  then add
    the last piece.
    
    Thanks and Credit to Michael Gebala for that graphical solution.

    Alternate Solution by: SilverSerpent66
    
    Move the left center to the middle. From there, move the bottom left to the
    center. Move the bottom center and bottom right over to the left. From there,
    move the top right and right center down once. Take the top center and top left
    to the right once. With that out of the way, move the bottom left and center
    left up once. Finally, you move the bottom center and bottom right pieces to
    the left. That should finish off the puzzle.
    
    Small Note from SilverSperpent66: You know when I say move both that you use
    the trick where you touch the one on the far end and they both move over at the
    same time, right? If not, that's what I mean.

    Alternate Solution by: Dean-O
    
    all you do is move the center tile to the center and circle the other pieces 
    around the outside...they will fall into place perfectly.

    the other side from some handgun ammo. Climb to the next level and around the
    balcony for a table with a green herb and the Ritual Preparation file. Make
