    I.    Introduction
    ------------------
    
    -- About the Game --
    
    Monty Python's The Meaning of Life is the third (and apparently final) Monty
    Python game from 7th Level.  Following the "Complete Waste of Time" and 
    "Holy Grail", the Meaning of Life takes you on a journey based on the 1983
    film of the same name, through each of the stages of life represented in the 
    film.  Then it gets weird.
    
    The game was developed by 7th Level, who merged with Pulse Entertainment on
    November 17, 1997, to create P7 Solutions.  Panasonic Interactive Media 
    bought the rights to distribute the game (as well as the two previous 
    titles), and are "in charge" of the game, its support, and its distribution.
    
    Personally, I think it's a wonderful game, despite the glitches.  It's the 
    first of the three games to actually make me laugh out loud for several 
    mintues, leaving me barely able to click on the next item at times.  Good 
    puzzles, good design, good video-clip selection, and horrible bugs.   
    
    -- About the FAQ/Walkthrough --
    
    Well, I think I've uncovered every nook and cranny in this game...  Full 
    walkthrough, hints, 25 cheat codes, corrected mine map, info on going to
    almost every area of the game, how to add any inventory item...  Whew!
    
    If you find anything I've missed, please let me know about it!  The only
    things missing from this FAQ are probably a Cottage Story Guide (how to
    follow all of the stories through to the end), explanations for two cheat 
    codes, and the identity of Larry and the two people shown in the credits.
    
    So, there will probably be at least two more revisions to this guide.  One
    with final fixes/error corrections and a Story Guide, and one to announce
    the relase of a patch (hint, hint).  So, feel free to contribute as you
    wish!

    III.  Known Bugs and Problems
    -----------------------------
    
    Yes, it's true that the version of Monty Python's The Meaning of Life that
    currently being sold in stores cannot be completed normally.  There is a 
    fatal bug in the next-to-last scene game that will prevent users from 
    getting to the final scene.  Luckily, there are a couple of workarounds that
    allow you to continue.  Unfortunately, that's not the only bug.
    
    If you experience strange problems (items not working correctly, the screen
    goes blank), you should probably contact Panasonic technical support (7th 
    Level no longer provides phone technical support for games).
    
    Panasonic Technical Support:
      Voice:  (425) 889-7095
      Fax:    (425) 828-8715
      E-Mail: tech@pimcom.com
      WWW:    http://www.pimcom.com
    
    Panasonic has confirmed the existence of two major bugs (the "X"/Shovel and
    Attic Entrance), and has agreed with the workarounds listed below.  They 
    have not confirmed that they are working on a patch, or indeed whether or not
    one will be released.  However, PIM's technical support is collecting the 
    addresses of everyone who writes their e-mail address, and will announce 
    when/if a patch is released.
    
    PROBLEM:  Game was playing fine, but suddenly there's no sound.  CTRL+ and -
              keys don't do anything.
    SOLUTION: This is an undocumented feature.  The asterisk (*) key on the 
              number keypad disables/enables the sound.  Just hit the key a 
              second time to restore the sound.
    
    PROBLEM:  In the cottage, I'm listening to the Potato's speech that begins 
              with "Excuse me for a moment while I check with my liver...".  
              When he's done speaking, he disappears, but the cursor doesn't 
              come back!
    SOLUTION: This is a minor glitch.  Just press your space bar to restore your
              cursor and continue with the game.
    
    PROBLEM:  In the cottage, in the beach area, I can't use the shovel on the 
              "X".  
    PROBLEM:  In the cottage, in the beach area, I used the shovel on the "X" 
              and dug a hole, but I can't go into the hole!
    SOLUTION: This is a fatal bug.  Once this has happened, you will not be able
              to complete the game.  You must restore the game from a point 
              before you entered the beach area, or use WorkAround 2 below.
    WORKAROUND 1:  
              Do *NOT* enter the beach area until you have both the Shovel and
              Mr. Blowhard.  Once you enter the beach area, do *NOT* save your
              game until you have retrieved the two items required from this
              area.  
    WORKAROUND 2:
              Use the Event Manager to add the missing items to your inventory.
              (See Section IX)
    
    PROBLEM:  When I go into the "Dental" area, the screen is black!
    SOLUTION: This isn't a bug; it's part of the game.  Continuing requires
              using an item.
    
    PROBLEM:  In the attic, I get to a screen with a ladder going up, and when
              I click on it, the screen goes black!
    SOLUTION: This is a major bug, stemming from the fact that the next scene of
              the game resides on Disc One, and the pop-up window to tell you to
              switch discs is invisible.
    WORKAROUND 1:
              Before clicking on the door, switch to Disc 1.  Once you have 
              switched discs and given the system enough time to recognise the new
              disc, click on the door.  You should then receive a "blue-screen"
              error message asking you to re-insert Disc 2.  Press ESC, and you
              will be returned to the door, and your cursor will have disappeared.
              Press the Space Bar to continue to the next scene.
    WORKAROUND 2 (Thanks to BettyCat):
              Once you get the black screen, switch discs.  Press the ALT-TAB keys
              to bring up the Windows task switcher, and switch to another 
              application.  Or, press the "Windows" key to bring up the Start
              Menu.  Either method will being the cursor back to the screen.  Once
              the cursor is visible, click on a spot approximately 1/4 of the
              screen from the bottom and centered left/right to get to the next
              screen.  If you miss, switch applications again and try again.  
              You're trying to click on the "OK" for the "Insert Disc One" 
              notification box, but it's invisible.  You may wish to mark the spot 
              earlier to make it easier.
    WORKAROUND 3:
              Cheat using the debug code.  See Section IX.
    
    IV.   General Information
    -------------------------
    
    --Questions between screens
         What's with the questions between the screens?  Well, it really doesn't
    matter what you answer as far as gameplay goes.  The answers do eventually
    get used at the endgame, but it won't affect your playing of the game at all.
    There are a set number of questions (I haven't counted them up yet), and 
    when you're done answering them, an "Intermission" screen will be shown 
    instead between scenes.
    
    --Shortcuts
         Press space to skip non-interactive screens
         Press space to interrupt dialog or animations
    
    
    V.    Video Clip Information
    ----------------------------
    
      As with the other games, this one is full of video clips.  The walkthrough
    below explains exactly how to find all of the clips in the course of the game,
    but you can also view them outside of the game.
      Video clips are stored in the \clips directory on each disc.  They are 
    Smacker video clips, and you can download the Smacker Video Tools to play
    them at:

      The clips are listed below by disc in the order in which you'll find them 
    while playing the game (using the walkthrough).

    VI.   Act I: The Stages of Life
    -------------------------------
    
    A.  Act I Common Sticking Points
    --------------------------------
    
    In Act I, the first six stages may be played in any order, but the last
    (Death) cannot be completed until the first six are finished.
    
    *** Live Organ Transplants ***
    
    -- How do I get past the operation section? --
    
    Everybody seems to have problems on this one.  I found that the following 
    method to work for me every time:
      Use the chainsaw.
      To begin, position the saw right over the dash and press AND HOLD the 
    mouse button.
      With the button held down, trace the pattern as it appears as quickly as you
    can.  If you stray, move back to the path quickly.  You only kill the patient
    when you stray from the correct path for more than about 2 seconds.
    
      From an anonymous source:
    "This game gets easier the more times you screw up.  So if someone is having 
    a real hard time with it they should just keep slaughtering the patient.  
    Also using space to abort through the "you screwed up" linears would speed 
    things up."
    
    Of course, you could always cheat (see Section IX)...
    
    *** The Autumn Years ***
    
    -- What's with the dishes? --
    
    The puzzle here is just a balancing puzzle.  You must keep as even as possible
    a weight on either side of the center dish.  It's not as easy as that, though,
    as the dishes are weighted.  You can tell the weight of each dish by the
    symbol on it:
          Triangle - 1
          Square - 2
          Circle - 3
          Rectangle - 4
    You can only have the dishes off-balance by 2 in either direction.  This means
    that in order to remove a Circle dish, the dishes must be at least slightly 
    tilting in the same direction, and for a Rectangle the dishes must be tilted
    even further in the same direction.  Keep a running tally of how the dishes
    are weighted  (-2 -1 0 1 2), and you should be just fine.
    
    Of course, you could always cheat (see Section IX)...
      
    *** Death ***
    
    -- How do you get into the house? --
    
    Well, you've got to get Death to go there.  To do that, just click on all of 
    the statues, the mausoleum, the tree (twice), the sky to the upper left of the 
    barn (twice), and then click Death three times.  If he's not moving on the 
    third click, make sure you've clicked everything again.
    
    -- How do you solve the cabinet puzzle? --
    
    Well, if you don't have all six items (meaning you've solved the other six
    sections of Act I), nothing.  All six items are required to continue.  If you 
    do have all six, just put each item in the bowl.  No mixers, just straight in 
    the bowl.  That's it!  You've won the game!  
    
    Just kidding.  You've just started.

    VII.  Act II: The Goals of Life
    -------------------------------
    
    A.  Act II Common Sticking Points
    ---------------------------------
    
    In Act II, the first two stages may be played in any order, but you will 
    need to complete "Spiritual" before completing "Material.  The last 
    (Dentistry) cannot be completed until the first two are finished.
    
    *** Material World ***
    
    -- What do I do with the VBCA? --
    
    On the farm, you need to start a war by first clicking on the woman (she's 
    hiding on the ground below the cow), and then clicking on the animals and 
    various scenery until they quit talking and start preparing for war.  Once 
    that happens, click on the tractor.  You'll then have a place for the VBCA.
    
    -- I'm lost in the mine!  How do I get out? --
    
    Try following the map below, or cheat (See Section IX) for other ways to get
    out.
    
    
    -- What do I give the guard? --
    
    You can't solve the Material world without solving the Spiritual World, and 
    vice versa.  Once you've found the guard, head to the Spiritual World.
    
    *** Spiritual World ***
    
    -- How do I find the Bishop? --
    
    To discover the Bishop, click the floor of the building in New Age World. 
    There are three areas in the Spiritual World where the Bishop appears once 
    he's been discovered, and you can spot them beforehand by the theme music.  He
    may go to the areas randomly - you may have to visit each area more than once
    before you actually get the item you need.  The areas are:
      Religions of the World - Catholic Church - Back of church
      Buddha World - Water right around waiter's feet
      Hell - window of the wedding chapel
    There are three video clips once you've found the first once, making four 
    total.  After the last one, you'll get an item.
    
    -- What's with the Buried Statues area? --
    
    It's a meditation garden.  Meditate.  Walk away from the computer, get 
    yourself a drink.  You have to wait several minutes and not take the first 
    item offered to get what you really need.
    
    -- How do I survive the "Doom" level? --
    
    You'll need the Flak Jacket (give Ghandi what he wants most) and the Sword 
    (which you'll find after you find the Bishop).  Just be fast, and shoot to
    kill.  It may take you a few times to pass it, but don't be too discouraged!
    I just move from left to right, shoot the first person I see until they 
    explode, then immediately move on to the right to the next one.  It is 
    possible, trust me!
    
    -- No, really, I can't do it!  How do I get past the level? --
    
    There isn't an easy way to do it, and the level doesn't get any easier no
    matter how many times you get killed.  If you're completely stumped, you can
    always cheat (See Section IX). 
    
    -- What do I give the guru? --
    
    If you haven't placated the guard in Material world yet, return there and 
    try to change his feelings towards you.  Once puzzle solves the other.
    
    *** Dental World ***
    
    -- It's pitch black!  What's going on? --
    
    You can't do anything here until you've completed the Material world.  Once
    you are properly Enlightened, you should do the same to the Dental world.

    Use the unexploded Scotsman to blow holes in walls to find your way through.
    When you encounter a monster, use the corresponding joke on the monster to
    clear the way.
    
    Hints on Finding your way:
    There are two ways to find your way through the caves:
    1)  Take special note of the walls, and keep the directions in mind.
        North - A flat wall, nothing of note.
        East - A sunken wall, here you can move the cursor up.
        South - Wall with a raised area in the middle.  Rocks blown up 
                here usually contain a set of initials.
        West - A sunken wall, here you can move the cursor down.
    2)  Cheat (see section IX)
    
    Additionally, there are 11 Treasures randomly scattered throughout the mine:
    Tea Tray, Stamp, Jewels, Uranium, Ark of the Covenant, Fur Coat,
    Caviar, Sunflowers, Car, Gold Ingots, and a Pearl.  But, Denis Moore will just 
    come and take them all anyway when you try to leave, so it's best to
    just ignore the Mine Cart and all of the treasures, and use the treasures
    as guideposts (with the above map) to find where you are.  They're random, 
    so mark where you see the treasures on the map.

    VIII. Act III: The Cottage of Life
    ----------------------------------
    
    A. Act III Common Sticking Points
    ---------------------------------
    
    -- What's the password? --
    
    Ths password can be found by carefully noting the names of the two computers,
    listening to the story given by the mask, and watching a video...
    
    -- How do I make the salmon mousse? --
    
    Follow the recipe!  It's pretty easy, well, once you realize what the six
    machines are!
      1 - Heater
      2 - Chopper (use twice for FINELY chopped items)
      3 - Whipper
      4 - Can Opener (AHA!)
      5 - Chiller
      6 - Mixer
    
    -- How do I play the organ? --
    
    The Concerto and the Poem need to be placed on the organ (they're both in the
    computer room), and the key guide is on the bookshelf.  
    
    -- The mouse hates all the cheese!  What can I do? --
    
    Pesky little bugger, isn't he?  He won't run the wheel, no matter what you
    do.  You need some thing different.  Try recording and then playing the 
    correct tune on the organ first, and then check the window to the left of
    the screen.
    
    -- I can't use the shovel on the "X"!  What gives? --
    
    See section III.
    
    -- What's with the sliding puzzle? It doesn't do anything! --
    
    That's because it's not a sliding puzzle.  It just looks like one.  Hints for
    what to do with it can be found in a book on the desk behind you, and on the
    Shaka computer.
    
    -- What's wrong with the parrot? --
    
    He's insane.  He mixes up the notes you play to him on the Rose and Weight 
    scales.  One of them he transposes, and the other he mirrors.  Just record
    the keys so he'll error in your favor.  
    
    -- How do I get rid of Big Labour? --
    
    Once you teach the parrot to speak correctly, you'll need to place him on the 
    perch in the back room.  Click on him to have him speak, and if you got it 
    right, you'll hear a chord.  If you exit, you'll hear a higher chords (the 
    same one you hear when you see Big Labour).  Enter, the low chords.  Exit, the 
    higher chords. You've got to shut the parrot up so he won't speak a second 
    time.
    
    -- How can I shut the parrot up? --
    
    Beat him to death.  Fun, isn't it?  Just be sure to do it after he speaks an
    odd number of times.
    
    -- Where's the cheese? --
    
    There are eight pieces of cheese in total, seven of them in random locations.  
    The Gouda is always found indide of Timmy the Computer, and the possible 
    locations for the remaining pieces are as follows:
    
      Computer Area, on rug beneath Shaka
      Computer Area, on floor beneath Statue
      Computer Area, on top of Shaka's scanner.
      Computer Area, above the entry door (left of the elephant picture)
      Middle of Cottage, on the rug in the Computer Area
      Middle of Cottage, on the couch   
      Middle of Cottage, on the dresser to the left of the doors
      TV Area, beneath the three masks
      TV Area, in the urinal doll
      TV Area, next to the Crimson Permanent
      Bookshelf Area, Beneath the urinal doll
      Bookshelf Area, Above the white mask
      Bookshelf Area, on the shelf
      Bookshelf Area, On the radiator
      Bookshelf Area, On the pile of CD's (below and to the left of the mouth)
      
    If you've found cheese in a different location, let me know!
    
    -- The hand in the sofa keeps disappearing! --
    
    Just click on it again.  Everything you stacked on it will return.
    
    -- The screen just went blank! --
    
    See section III.

    *** The Cottage ***
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Save your game here at the beginning, and keep a saved game 
    here!  There is a fatal bug in the Cottage that may prevent you from 
    progressing in the game in some situations.  
    
    NOTE: There are 8 pieces of cheese in the cottage, and seven of them are
    located randomly in open areas throughout the Computer Area, TV Area, Middle,
    and Bookshelf Area.  You need to collect the cheese as you run into it over
    the course of this area.  If you can't find all seven by the end of the 
    section, see "Where's the cheese?" above.

    IX.   Codes and How to Use Them
    -------------------------------
    
    -- The Codes --
    
    Yes, there are codes!  After reading through the resource files with a Hex
    Editor, I am now proud to present the following...
    
    ** Global Codes **
    These codes should be typed in to the keyboard, presumably at any point in
    the game where you have a cursor to control.
    
    REPEATEDDEVASTATION
      This is the debug code, which brings up the game's event viewer.  This lets
      you change scenes, add inventory items (even a few that aren't in the game),
      and generally muck about.  Of course, typing in invalid entries can cause
      the game to crash (the CurrentBinName and CurrentViewScript in particular), 
      but feel free to explore otherwise!
    
    NOWCOMEONITSFUNNYRIGHT
      This makes the cursor point with a different finger.  You guess which one.
    
    From an anonymous source:
      "There is a story behind this one and I am telling this story because 
    everyone on the team secretly wants the world to know about it.  Our 
    producer's name was David Feldsetin, of course that appears in the credits, 
    but this quote is from him.  Needless to say he was a thorn in the 
    programmers side, especially during the final days of the project.  We 
    would always question some of the humor in the game, and some of it we just 
    didn't get.  Yet every time he would come up with a new idea or we would 
    question his humor he would say, "Now come on, it's funny right?"  It's 
    really a shame we didn't put in a wave file."
    
    THEREARENOMORALSATALL
      This code skips over all of the "Moral Dilemma" questions (they're all 
    automatically answered with the first answer for each question).
    
    From the same source:
      "I actually added this one near the end of the project.  All it does is 
    answer all of the Moral Delima questions.  So if you type it at the 
    beginning of a new game you won't have to answer any of those questions.  
    It was left in for the programmers and QA who might want to play the retail 
    version.  This was one of those things none of us found funny, well no one 
    except David."
    
    **Location Codes**
    These codes can only be typed in at specific locations in the game.
    
    IMNODOCTOR
      Location: Act I, Live Organ Transplants, Live Organ Transplants
      Type in the code to automatically complete a slit.  Once you've selected a
    tool, type in the code and you'll be done with that round.
    
    ICANTLOOSE
      Location: Act I, Live Organ Transplants, Live Organ Transplants
      Type in the code and it will be almost impossible to kill the patient, no 
    matter how bad you are.  (Note:  This is I can't "loose" not "lose".
    
    IWANTTOWIN
      Location: Act I, Autumn Years, Restaurant  
      Type in the code to automatically win the stacked dish game.
    
    ILOVETOCOOK
      Location: Act I, Death, House, Cabinet
      Type in the code to automatically get all six items needed to complete the
    game.
    
    IHATETOCOOK
      Location: Act I, Death, House, Cabinet
      Type in the code, and you'll get taunted as if you made a mistake with the
    items. Hmmm...
    
    GIMMESTUFF
      Location: Act II, Material, Level 1
      Type in the code to receive the Pantomime Horse and the Encyclopedia 
    Salesman.
    
    GIMMESTUFF
      Location: Act II, Material, Nature Preserve
      Type in the code to receive the Chainsaw, Victrola, Raspberry, Friar, 20
    Insurance Buildings, and 51% VBCA stock.
    
    LOBSTERGIRL
      Location: Act II, Material, Heaven, "SEX SEX SEX"
      After (or while) being chided for being a goat lover, type in the code to 
    hear Lobster Girl!
    
    LARRYPREFERSSHEEP
      Location: Act II, Material, Heaven, "SEX SEX SEX"
      Type in the code to hear, well, I'll let you listen for yourself.  Not for 
    the tenderhearted.  I wonder who Larry is...
    
    COMPASS
      Location: Act II, Material, Mine
      Type in this code to display... a compass!  
    
    NOCOMPASS
      Location: Act II, Material, Mine
      Type in this code to remove the compass.

      This resets the Doom level without looking down and pressing the button.  
    Of course, resetting seems to make the level harder, as the fanatics start 
    firing at an amazingly fast rate.

      This code doesn't appear to do a thing.  From the sound of it, I'd guess
    that it's _supposed_ to increase your hit points.  Doesn't work, and it 
    doesn't seem to affect anything else either.  If you can find out anything
    about this one, let me know.

    -- Using the Event Manager --
    
    If you've ever used a Windows registry editor before, you should feel right
    at home here.  If not, well, you can figure it out.  Just use the left window
    to explore the various nodes, and double-click values in the right window
    to change them.
    
    If you can find more tricks with the Event Manager, feel free to pass them 
    along.  I'd be glad to add them!
    
    ** Getting from place to place
     
    To get to any location in the game:
    1)  Bring up the Event Manager
    2)  Under "SYSVAR" edit the "CurrentBinScript" and "CurrentViewScript" 
        variables to get to the desired location.  
    3)  Save your game before you do anything else.
    4)  Restore that saved game.  You should be in the new location!
    
    Note: This list isn't comprehensive, but it does allow access to all major
    areas of the game.  If you want to send me more locations, I'd be glad to 
    add them in.
    
    Another Note:  Going to locations you're not supposed to be in can cause
    problems, especially if you haven't triggered the correct event or picked
    up the right inventory item.  Use at your own risk.

    ** Getting Inventory Items
    
    To add/remove items to/from your inventory:
    
    1)  Bring up the Event Manager
    2)  Under "SYSVAR" open the "INV" menu for a list of items.
    3)  Click on the item to change
    
    To add an item into your inventory:
    
    1)  Note the number stored as "INTEGER 2", but don't change it.
    2)  Click on "BAG OF ITEMS"
    3)  The first free inventory slot will have a value of "-1".  Change it to
        the number you noted under "INTEGER 2" for the item.
    
    To remove an item from your inventory:
    
    1)  Change the "INTEGER 1" value to 0.
    
    Changing/adding/removing inventory items can cause problems, especially if
    you find that item later.  Use at your own risk.
    
    Note that you can add inventory items that aren't actually in the game,
    such as "Winnings", "Perfect Smile", and "Arthur Lemming DBA".  Leads me to
    wonder if the "Dental" area had a little more planned than implemented.
    
    ** Getting Past Live Organ Transplants
    
    Hate playing the game?  Here's a few helpful cheats (from Mark Young):
    
    1)  Bring up the Event Manager
    2)  Under "Act1" open the "B3" menu for a list of items.
    3)  Change the "BellyOpen" value to "1"
    4)  Save, then Restore
    
    Or, if you still want to play:
    
    1)  Bring up the Event Manager
    2)  Under "Act1" open the "B3" menu for a list of items.
    3)  Change the "FudgeFactor" value to a high value (like "850000")
    4)  Save, then Restore
    
    This will make it a lot harder to kill the poor sod...
    
    ** Getting Past Doom
    
    The Doom level is the one that tends to give the most people the most 
    heartache.  Well, here's the easy way around:
    
    1)  Before going into the Doom level, activate the Event Manager (type in
        "REPEATEDDEVASTATION"), and minimize it.
    2)  Once you've entered the level, bring the manager back up quickly.
    3)  Under "Act2", open the "H8" menu.
    4)  Now, change the "HitPoints" number from 40 (or 20 if you don't have the
        Flak Jacket) to an outrageously high number of your choosing.
    
    Of course, that may be too much trouble for some people, so here's the wimpy
    way around:
    
    1)  Enter the Doom level, then look down and exit right back out.
    2)  Activate the Event Manager ("REPEATEDDEVASTATION")
    3)  Under "Act2", open the "H8" menu.
    4)  Now, change the "CrpytDefeated" (sp) number from 0 to 1.
    5)  You wimp.

    *  The Cottage is a real Cottage, owned by Terry Gilliam. Apparently, it was
       seen on a TV interview some months back.  (I can't remember who sent me 
       this information...  Anyone care to own up, or to confirm?)
    *  There are three never-before-heard full skits in the Cottage, located 
       on the sofa in the Computer Area, as the last page of the book sitting
       there.  Just click the radio for each one.  (Does anyone have more info
       about these?)
    
    Yep, that's it.  I'd love more info for this section, however...
