Gah! I can't figure out how to get to the vines and the very top level of the castle. I'm sure the last two red keys are hiding up there. What am I missing? {head-hitting-brick-wall-smiley}

Maybe there is an open window somewhere near those vines...?

Thanks Toybox but I'm still missing something. Jack starts out at the bottom of the turret (#16109), climbs up the vine to #15909 and gets stuck. No access to the vines from the two adjacent rooms (#15910 and 15710.) That's as far up as we can get  :P

Have you tried going left from #15910 into #15909? You will find an open window there, from which you can reach a vine.

OK, I'll just be over here demoting myself to Lost One.

OK, I'll admit, I'm not only feeling very stupid, but totally stumped.  And it seems no one else has had this issue !!!

Please see attached pic.  j

I have gone through everywhere Jack can think of to use these wonderful SEVEN red keys I have found, and simply cannot find a way to where we're supposed to use them !!!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated  ;D
Thanks so much in advance !

PS:  Me and My Jack are totally loving all the included mansions, working our way thru the 'normals' of each, and all we can say is WOW !   Well done to all the designers  8-) [smiley=tekst-toppie.gif]

You use the red keys at the end. See the bottom right corner of your map?  I think you might need another red key to get all the money, though. I know you need 8 for the hard version but can't remember how many for normal.

8 for normal as well.

Oh !  Ok !  Thanks guys, I did try that once, and ended up dying real quick (only had one life left), But I guess I 'assumed' (and made an A$$ out of me and Jack) that since the sign about the bountiful treasure was on the left of the last room, I had to go left !!!

Well, off to explore and 'duck' as needed, thanks again, I'll let you know if I ever get the last of the red keys !!!

Take care !

Lovely mansion, thanks to the builder, and now onto the next challenge for me and Jack :D

Actually, you need 8 for maximum monetary gain, and you'll know where they're needed by the time you've finished the mansion. I guess that sentence sounds snooty, but it's meant as a hint. Good luck.

I think I must be really stupid considering I've finished all levels of MM1 and have easily sailed through all the other easy level mansions in MM2 but I cannot work out how to open the grey door with the first red key behind it in the first stage of Dr Cass easy.  I know there's a solution but I've tried repulling all the levers and monitoring the effect on the map and looking for levers to pull behind all the tomb stones.  I've jumped up and down behind columns and vases and looked for loose stones to tread on but .......I cannot open it.  Please, someone tell me before I get really fed up!

Skally, could you please supply the room number? If you hit Cmd + D you will see the number up in the left corner in MM

Title: Re: Am I stupid?? Cassiopus EASY
Post by Skally on 20.02.2011 at 02:18:47
You will think I'm really daft but it's room 58.  Thanks for helping.

Title: Re: Am I stupid?? Cassiopus EASY
Post by Semi-Native on 20.02.2011 at 02:22:09
Skally, it's the number on the top left. 58 isn't a room number, that's the game speed.

Is it 16507?  If so, do you hear that sound when you enter the room? It means you have to kill all the critters in that room (there are shields there to help you), and something magical will happen.  ;)

Title: Re: Am I stupid?? Cassiopus EASY
Post by Skally on 20.02.2011 at 02:35:25
Yes, thank you.  It worked!  I never have the sound up so as not to disturb anyone and I'm so good at avoiding creatures that it would never have occurred to me to do that deliberately but now I know why there were so many shields!

Thanks again.

Sound is a vital feature in MM  ;)

Title: Re: Am I stupid?? Cassiopus EASY
Post by Skally on 20.02.2011 at 22:20:41
Me back again!  Managed all that but I can see that there is a walk way at the bottom of rooms 15310, 15311 and 15312 with spiders etc and an open window with a ladder coming out of it.  I have tried every which way to get onto it including jumping from the vine and trying to jump onto it on the 'up' platform but I can't find the way.  Any hints?

Title: Re: Am I stupid?? Cassiopus EASY
Post by Skally on 20.02.2011 at 23:40:26
Also, when you press boggle D I know now that the top left is the room number, top right the speed but what is bottom right?

Number of found secrets!!

Title: Re: Am I stupid?? Cassiopus EASY
Post by Skally on 20.02.2011 at 23:55:26
Thanks Rose.  In the end I thought I would just keep going and see if I had enough red keys.  I did, checked out with 100% secrets and over 49,000 so I presume the secret walkway I can see if part of one of the other levels!
