    Try opening the case file. You can see the figure there. I also tried the figure on the wood but somehow it’s quite different.

    Just look very very closely. You can see the order once you played the film reel. It shows Victor reading a book but the background has what you need. I probably played it 6 times to get it right.

    Use the long stick at the bottom of the well (the area when you use the rope to get down to the coffin of the twins).

    I’m having a problem with the cellar door to the school house. I set the stove at 550 degrees but I still am not able to get the cellar door open. does anyone know what I need to do with the device on the door? Please help!

  3. Kristine says:

    You need to first go to the door left of the school. There you can see a wooden door. Look carefully at the door. You can see a writing of the temperature (carved on the door). Then go to the stove and adjust the temperature from what you see on the wooden door. You can see the top of the stove where red burning embers leave their light (where the red ones are) then put the pattern needed for the door to open. Then you can go in. :D

  4. Denise says:

    Thanks Kristine! You’ve been a big help. I hope you keep up on this web site because I bet I’ll have more questions!

    The basement door at the schoolhouse is tied to the stove in the toy house. Use the oven mit to turn the handles to make the temperature guage read 400 degrees. (Not 550 as noted in other posts. Perhaps this temperature changes? I am not certain but mine read 400 degrees) This temperature is carved into the wooden basement doors on the lower left. After I got the stove to 400 degrees I looked at the pattern of the circles on top of the stove and copied that to the circles on the “Lock” on the basement doors. Make those circles orange/red to match the pattern on the stove. Flip the picture/photo to which ever one will make the lock open. I hope that helps you.

  11. Rose says:

    I see Kristine has answered the question about the basement doors. I suppose it helps to read all the posts. = )

  12. rachael says:

  13. Beckie says:

    Where are the books at? How do you get to the cottage?

  14. Krystal says:

    I need help with the peacock puzzle… pleasse

  15. Darlene says:

    When yall hear those eerie desperate voices begging for help, it’s not Rose or the Sommerset twins, it’s the reverberation of my loud frustrated screams you’re hearing as I fling obscenities at my computer. I’m so stuck in this game, and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who can tell us how to find the MATCHES! Whoever sheds light on this will be the hero of so many people right now, me especially. When I completed the puzzle that opened the door to the pitch-black room, it didn’t give me matches, it simply let me pass. It won’t let me play it again either.
    And the whole long stick thing is driving me crazy too, because I had a long stick, but I used it pointlessly on the dangling bucket when it said I needed something to reach it with. It’s gone from my inventory. I also haven’t been given any knife. I’ve got a damp cloth, a funnel, a screwdriver, a jar of fuel, and every typewriter key except R. I’ve completed every hidden object area and puzzle available, with no way that I can find to move on. HELP, before Ravenhearst Manor claims another victim–my sanity!! Edit:****

  19. karen says:

    the answer to the rope question is you need to hit the bucket with the stick ..then go to the well at main gates there you will find a knife ..but it needs to be sharped to rip open teddy in cellar to retrieve matches to light kindling
