Puzzle Solutions

Chapter 1-3: Green Orb Door
Location: In the Village: Chief's House
Reward: Access to the Chief's House
Solution: Move the green orb up once then left once. This will open the door.


Chapter 1-3: Church Dial
Location: In the Village: Behind the Church itself
Reward: Green Catseye
Solution: To do this puzzle, you need to roate the dial in this order:
3-3-3-4-4-4-3 **Thanks to all who told me about an easier solution**


Chapter 2-1: Crossing the Dam
Location: Past the Lake, near waterfall area
Reward: Access to water way
Solution: Begin by following the south bank until you are able to jump across.
Now run along the bank to the north and climb down the rope. You can pick up
some handgun ammo here as well as another item in the barrel. If you look right
you'll notice an object glittering in the wall. Pick it up the spinel and move
east. Shoot the chain that is holding a box and move to the center platform.
Break the barrel for a green herb and again shoot the chains that are holding
the boxes up nearby. Retrace your steps and jump back over the bank. Head south
and smash the barrel for a hand grenade. Pull the lever and go back to the
center platform then into the cave.

Alternate Solution: It is not necessary to shoot the chains to fall the boxes
from their holding places. You can simply shoot the box itself, and it will
fall. This will save some ammunition for people who have difficulty hitting 
the smaller target. - Credit goes to Rick Merchant for this.

Chapter 2-2: Church Color Light
Location: Inside Church
Reward: Ashley
Solution: Rotate the red light 2 times, the green light 3 times and the blue
light 1 time. 


Chapter 3-1: Pressure Plates in Blue Room
Location: Hall of Water
Reward: Enemies
Solution: Place Ashley on one of the plates and command her to stay. Move Leon
to the other plate.


Chapter 3-2: Portrait Puzzle
Location: Castle: After killing the Cult Member and using the Key
Reward: Open door to next area
Solution: Press the numbers in the following order: 1, 3, 2, 4. Choose OK/Quit.

Alternate Solution: At the Portrait Puzle, the riddle for which being:
"The sacrifice of six will reveal the true path,"  the solution is to add three
numbers to equal six, then choose a 4th number--the execution/death number--as
the number 4 to complete the solution.  

You must use all four numbers, add 3 of them to equal six, choose 4 as the 4th
number, then press "ok."So, the following combinations would work, in addition
to your working solution:





^^ Sent in by Nicholas.

Alternate Solution: For this puzzle, the only things that truly matters is that
you use each number once and only once. There's no set combination. - Credit
goes to Rick Merchant.


Chapter 3-2: Courtyard Garden
Location: Castle" Courtyard/Garden
Reward: Moonstone
Solution: Examine the bedroom doors to find there's an indent in them. Now head
east to open the gates. Move under the bridge and behind a platform. From there
go south towards a closed gate. DO NOT OPEN THE GATE! Instead, snipe the dogs
in the gate. Once they are dead, open the gate and passed the stairs to the
left. Make your way to the corner for some shotgun shells. Beware, you'll end
up having to fight after you take the shells. Return to the stairs you passed
a bit ago and head up them. Go across the bridge then left for some TMP ammo.
Return to the stairs and head north-east to a fountain area where you'll
obtain part of a moonstone. Now go back across the bridge towards the kennel
area. Keep going south-west and then north at the corner. You'll find a yellow
herb there. Head back a few feet to a zigzag area and head north. Take a few
steps and go east then south for a Red Gem. Go north from the Red Gem, follow
the path under the bridge to the north-west corner. Kill the dogs in the kennel
and go south for a First Aid Spray. Return to the kennel and move east. Ignore
the gate by keep heading east for a Spinel. Again, head back to the kennel to
go under the bridge and up the stairs. Collect the moonstone, move east to jump
off the platform. Return to the main entrance.


Chapter 3-3: Last Dinner
Location: Castle: Last Supper Corridor
Reward: Next area of game: Gladiator Cage
Solution: First ring the bell. All you need to shoot is the wine. **Thanks to
everyone who told me about this.**


Chapter 3-4: Ashley's Knight Tiles
Location: Castle: After you set her free
Reward: Gold Bangle, Spinel, Salazar Family Insignia, Serpent Ornament
Solution: Move the right-center tile to the center. Now move the top-right
downwards. Take the top-center to the right and the center tile needs to go up.
Next the left-center needs to be moved to the center and the bottom-left will
move up. Now move the bottom-center to the left and the right-center down. Take
the center tile and move it right. The top-center will need to go down while
the top-left needs to go right. Take the left-center up and bottom-left up.
Now move the center down and right-center to the center. The bottom-right can
be moved up. Insert the tile you picked up earlier.

Another Soultion:

|  1  |  2  |  3   |
|  4  |  5  |  6   |
|  7  |  8  |  9   |

Here goes -  6,3,2,5,4,7,9,6,5,2,1,7,8,5,6,9  then add
the last piece.

Thanks and Credit to Michael Gebala for that graphical solution.


Alternate Solution by: SilverSerpent66

Move the left center to the middle. From there, move the bottom left to the
center. Move the bottom center and bottom right over to the left. From there,
move the top right and right center down once. Take the top center and top left
to the right once. With that out of the way, move the bottom left and center
left up once. Finally, you move the bottom center and bottom right pieces to
the left. That should finish off the puzzle.

Small Note from SilverSperpent66: You know when I say move both that you use
the trick where you touch the one on the far end and they both move over at the
same time, right? If not, that's what I mean.


Alternate Solution by: Dean-O

all you do is move the center tile to the center and circle the other pieces 
around the outside...they will fall into place perfectly.


Chapter 4-1: Knight's Pressure Pads
Location: Castle: West of Annex
Reward: Another Puzzle
Solution: Lead Ashley onto one of the pads. Have Leon push the two knights onto
the other pads. Now have him stand on the last pad.


Chapter 4-1: Collapsing Ceiling
Location: After Knight's Pressure Pads
Reward: Handgun Ammo, saved from death
Solution: Shoot the pink gems that are on the ceiling before it collapses.

Another Solution from D S: You can stand outside of the room and shoot the gems.
After the cutscene, you can move along without having to do the puzzle.


Chapter 4-1: Clock Tower Clogs
Location: Clock Tower
Reward: Access to another area
Solution: In the tower, take a few steps out on the balcony. Look up and shoot
the box there. If you aim a bit higher, you can shoot another box. Find the
ladder and head up. Go south-east to get a random item in the crate. Move to
the other side from some handgun ammo. Climb to the next level and around the
balcony for a table with a green herb and the Ritual Preparation file. Make
your way to the lever, shoot the box and pull the lever. Make your way down to
the bottom and out of the tower.


Chapter 4-3: Another Collapsing Ceiling
Location: In the Mines
Reward: Money and handgun ammo
Solution: First take out the Las Plagas with a flash grenade. Then shoot the
pink gems in the ceiling to stop it from falling.


Chapter 4-4: Robo-Salazar
Location: After mine cart ride, in the cathedral
Reward: Robo-Salazar chasing you
Solution: Begin by climbing up the ladder to reach his left hand. Jump on it
and take it up 3 levels. Smash the pots for a spinel. Then throw the lever to
raise one of the platform. Now jump to the center and press the switch. You can
shoot the switch if needed. Move over to the right hand. Ride the right hand up
3 levels and break the pots for some money. Follow the path to a level and pull
it. Ride the right hand to the 2nd level. Break the pots to obtain a Velvet
Blue. Make your way down to the 1st level to find Shotgun Shells. Move the
lever to raise the second platform. Go north up the center asle.


Chapter 5-1: Colored Light
Location: Island Complex: Autopsy room
Reward: Luis Memo #3. Maybe TMP ammo, Freezer Card Key
Solution: Examine the locked door. Look to the right for pannel. You'll want to
turn the blue color once, the green color twice and the red color three times.
**Note: Re-write the card key after you use it for the Freezer Room. The card
re-writer is located to the east of the freezer room enterance.
