Revisiting the five steps to BT
« on: August 30, 2014, 09:49:25 PM »
BT likes you to pay attention....watching the intro?

Give credit where credit is due... buy Japsworth all the drinks he wants?

He likes numbers... the library book pages?

He likes fire... burn things at every opportunity?

Be patient and be hydrated.... drink booze till passing out?

Step 1 - If this were a test, I'd say correct.

Part 2, as you wrote, the "credit" ties in with step 1, comprende?

Step 3... numbers. Gadgets. Find a gadget with numbers. Any number, pick a number, Pick Douglas Adams favorite number! It doesn't matter whether you win or lose, but if you play the game.

Step 4 - Fire? Where there's fire there maybe lightning. White lightning.

Step 5 - Remember - EVERYONE ends up here.. or near here, or in here. Somethings have eternity to wait, but you don't. XX marks the spot. Tie it together.

Like Garr, I took a short break from QI and sure enough all I've been thinking about this mystical Bt fight

I think I've figured out step 3 & 4 - can Bt confirm?

Step 3:  try punching in some digits in the ATM machine.  There are only two gadgets in the game that uses numbers, the safe in the house near the bank and the ATM.  Since this challenge is open to all classes and the brigand cannot break into homes, that only leaves the ATM.

Step 4: involves the Moonshiner.  Moonshine is also known as white lightening, a description that is also used in game when you use the look icon at the still.  This must be the step that can only be done in Act 2 (as eluded in a different post Bt replied to).  I only recently found that you can kill him by burning (click sword icon on him) as opposed to using the usual tactics when you use the talk icon on him.

Now it's just a matter of step 5...I'm wondering if it's the main plaza of Tyr (EVERYONE shows up there at the end except Swart, who shows up NEAR there to pick up Roehm), just can't imagine what the XX is about...

Longsunrise - you're on to something!

Garr - somewhere down the line I have to send you a QFI "Bank of Volksville" Card for all your hard work and diligence!  You're a real trooper!

there is that fallen over grave that looks like it can be a door or something, near the grave digger,
idk

been trying to sort out that for a while,
but everyone ends here for sure is dead, or something along those lines

step 2 is the one kinda irking me, not sure what that means on the credit, just makes me think of space quest idk,
hope its not typing in a THANK YOU in the book or something as such,

the first step must be done before act 1
the other steps must be done in act 2,  not before,
so i dont think the credits thing is just after the prologue
its gotta be after the act 1 ends from my deduction

Im confused,

I watched the prelude, and there are credits in there, but nothing else before that..
its not one in the same?

or you are saying it is one and the same step, just dont skip the credits or prelude (this is what im hoping is step 1 and 2) just not skipping anything and watching those intro credits and then the animation opening seq

hope thats right or damn id have to start again,  I even recorded the credits in hopes there was a WILL in there somewhere for that damn book lol

so I watched em many o times, and the prelude writing down words I could use for da book
giving credit where its due, to one of the people in the credits ahh I tried all those names!
grrrr?

Finding and battling Bt is the most challenging puzzle/easter egg in the game.  Thats the whole point of an easter egg.  For those who say " this puzzle has ruined the game for me", i think thats a bit sad and ridiculous.  Quest for Infamy is a classic adventure game for old school gamers and new a like.  I have to agree tho that it is a frustrating puzzle and probally wont be found by the majority of players without help or a guide.  That said the game's story, graphics, music, humor are all top rate and have been Very enjoyable for this gamer!  p.s.   I havent found Bt/the hidden bar either!!!!

that part.. i think i got figured out, and its close but not what you thinkin :P

as for step 2 giving credit, bt mentioned the credits .. but that happens with the first step urmm so im lost at how it applies unless one has to credit someone in the credits somehow.. grrrr?

any input there?

btw just sold my extra steam cards cheap for fans, just missing 2 now and yea one is darn volksville card, 1$ a card daaamn  nice, but to high for me,
I remember when the game came out like all cards were 2$ ish or so give or take! awesome insane

annyway hit me up garr esp on the 2nd step, if I got it or missed that one somehow idk.
dont want to get to far in just to start over but i do believe this 2nd step CANT be done until after act1 is over.

also i noticed as a sorc on a few plays that the hunter in the south woods never offers info for food or money, so that never pops up, it did as rogue and brig path but not sorc, 
and I want to set fire to the bush not fly over it BT make that happen! hahah float .. no no this is FIRE here red bush on fiiiyaaa
Trooooggdooorr
the burninator   from strongbad a series and game I helped work on haha

You're doing pretty well, Garr. 


Good advice.  More clues coming this week.
