the columns

the shelf with nothing in your hand (i.e. no inventory items

return to your inventory. But watch out! When the book returns to
your inventory, it occupies the first vacant inventory position,
so it may no longer be in the position it was when you first
picked it up from the secret drawer.
- once the books are on the shelf in the correct order, you'll
hear a rumbling noise - you've opened the secret door! (Did you
notice the little magnetic click each book made when it was placed

first is long, the second is short, the third is short, the fourth
is long, the fifth is medium. Each line corresponds to a button
position. When you find this box that's depicted in the diagram,
set its five buttons to High, Low, Low, High, Medium, and the box
will open
- the box is located in the room you just left at the top of the
secret stairs (don't get confused with the spiral stairs! The
secret stairs are the straight ones you just walked down)

the bottom of the game screen until it turns into a backwards
arrow, then click
- turn around and navigate to the secret stairs, and climb up them

Click on the car to get back into the driver's seat.

dial starts moving.

glass breaks and you get the key piece

"IF CLICKED LEFT" section above)

The comm unit has four yellow symbols on its screen, and a CD tray
sticking out. Put the CD into the tray. The CD is the decoder

"abandon ship". You now know the symbols to start an abandon ship

concrete pedestal
112 using the portable portal, punch in the coordinates for the
mothership (they're the orange ones still showing on the right
side of the tv tray in the bad ship cockpit on world 1. The orange
ones show where you've come from, the green ones show where you've
gone to (or are going to)
113 make your way to the comm unit of the top deck of the
mothership, just outside Ozgar's door. Plug in the imager, take a
picture of the empty hall and project it from the imager.
114. put down the portable portal in the hall
115. select the sun from the portable portal control unit
116 punch in the 'abandon ship' code on the comm unit
117 Sirens wailing, Ozgar turns and leaves his cabin to see what's
going on. The hall ahead looks empty (because the imager is
projecting the empty hall image) so he zooms right through it and
into the sun.
