*** OPENING GRANDPA'S CHEST ***

Required items: 
~ Milena's necklace, given to you by Pat

The basis behind the puzzle is to rearrange the tumblers so they
represent the design on Milena's necklace (diamond, diamond, 
heart, diamond, diamond). Examine the necklace in your inventory
and then click on the chest to get started.

From left to right, click the following tumblers:
~ 2, three times
~ 3, one time
~ 4, three times
~ 5, three times

Now click the red button.

------------------------------------------------------------------

*** OPENING THE CORONER'S SAFE ***

Required items: 
~ Piece of paper with the code written on it, located on the shelf
in the Old Chapel

The object of the puzzle is to open the safe by placing each square
in their appropriate slots. Of course, just finding the 
code--74821536--isn't enough. Now we've got to decipher it. 
Basically, each symbol is either identical to a number in shape or
is based on the number of lines (shown by the clock sitting on the
same shelf you found the code).

The code is, from left to right, as follows:

 ___         
|_  | 
  |_|_   


  |

order as shown in the chart hanging in the crane room wall. 

~ Move 2 to middle left
~ 6 down and above 1
~ 2 to top left
~ 6 to middle left

Phew. 

------------------------------------------------------------------

*** MOVING THE CRANE ***

Required items: 
~ Cutters, located on the ground outside the crane room within the
junkyard

Since Gus doesn't feel like becoming the main course for dinner, 
the object of this puzzle is to rearrange the crates in order to 
get across to the boxcars.

Using the crane:
~ PC players move it by using the directional arrows. Xbox players
move it using the direction buttons (not the analog).
~ Pick up and lower crates by clicking the crane.

Move the two available crates until they form a path from the roof
of the building you're on to the two crates stacked on each other. 
Go outside and jump towards the chained crates using the ones you
just moved. Cut the chains using the cutters and then go back to
the crane control panel. 

Relocate the crates so they form a straight path from the roof
to the top of the boxcar. Go outside and jump across. The end.

------------------------------------------------------------------

*** BAKING COOKIES A.K.A. MAKING THE PERFECT MAN ***

Required items: 
~ None

Probably the most pointless puzzle in the game. 

Check out the ingredients on the table and then read the recipe in 
the cookbook:

~ 1 cup of love
~ 1/2 cup of generosity
~ 2 cups of commitment
~ 1 cup of sweetness
~ 1/2 cup of integrity
~ 1 tablespoon of romance
~ 1 teaspoon of sensuality
~ 1 common sense

'In a bowl, cream together generosity, sweetness and love to give 
your man a sweetheart. To give him devotion, sift together 
commitment, sensuality and romance. Blend devotion to his 
sweetheart. Finally, add intelligence, a mix of common sense and 
integrity and beat it with the rest to make your perfect man. Give 
him a form and place in the oven. Remember not to overcook.'

Put a 1/2 cup of generosity (butter), 1 cup of sweetness (brown 
sugar) and 1 cup of love (milk) into the bowl. Click the button to 
mix it.

Next, add 2 cups of commitment (flour), 1 teaspoon of sensuality
(cinnamon) and 1 tablespoon of romance (ginger). Mix again.

Finally, add 1 common sense (egg) and 1/2 cup of integrity 
(molasses). Mix, and then click the oven button.

------------------------------------------------------------------

*** LOCK PICKING ***

Required items: 
~ Lock pick kit, given to you by Kubina

It wouldn't be Gustov McPherson if he wasn't breaking into 
something...

The object is to move the bars up or down using the lock picks 
until they click into place. If you mess up, you can exit the 
puzzle and it will reset. 

The top bars, from left to right, will be labeled: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
6, 7, 8, and 9. The bottom bars, from left to right, will be: 10,
11, 12, 13, 14, and 15. Now click...

~ 6, 4, switch

~ 4, switch 
~ 6, 6, 14, switch 
~ 7, switch 
~ 13, 13, switch
~ 6, 6, 8, switch
~ 9

CLICK IT EVEN IF IT DOESN'T SEEM TO DO ANYTHING.

This puzzle takes time. Don't rush it.

*** RED LANTERN: SECRET ROOM ACCESS CODE ***

Required items: 
~ None

Easy puzzle. Look at the paintings on the wall. Note the titles
and the numbers featured in them and then go back to the panel 
beside the locked door.

Read the poem to the left:

'in my memoirs
you shall find the instrument of my suffering
with which we celebrate our vows'

Each line matches up to a painting, giving you the numbers and 
order for the code.

in my memoirs - 'Reminder IV II'
you shall find the instrument of my suffering - 'Dagger 3 6'
with which we celebrate our vows - 'Dark Wedding I V'

I use to love these when I was a kid. The object is to rearrange
the tiles so that the painting looks like the one above the 
fireplace where you found the extra tile.

There are nine spots in all. For the sake of explaining the
puzzle, they'll be labeled as follows:

 _____ _____ _____

|_____|_____|_____|

|_____|_____|_____|
|     |     |     |
|  7  |  8  |  9  |
|_____|_____|_____|

Move the tiles in the following order: 8, 9, 6, 3, 2, 5, 4, 7, 8,
