DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU'VE SOLVED THE GOLDEN DOME PUZZLE

OK, I'm a nerd and haven't played Riven before. I bought a copy a little while ago and have been hooked on it since. I discovered a potential error that will totally halt all gameplay. It has to do with the golden dome puzzle.

I've unlocked all the golden domes and have noted all the colors and everything I'm supposed to do. I've tried to place all the marbles in the right spots on the grid (1st island), but the domes won't activate. I've double-checked my work with online walkthroughs and have compared marble grids and they all match up. I know the yellow marble shouldn't be placed anywhere.

I just don't get why it's not working, but it's not. I'm running Riven on Windows XP (although it's set to run on Windows 95). I've looked around online to see if there are any reports of this, but haven't found anything. If you guys have heard of it and know what to do about it, please drop me a line. ranting.gif

Hi TjennerG bye2.gif

It's been a long time since I played Riven, so I don't recall it perfectly what you need to do. The settings of the marbles seemed to be good. But I think you need to get some steam from somewhere to get the power up the domes. Look around for some valves and levers you can open/pull. But I could be wrong and that he steam is used for something else. Sorry I can't remember it that good anymore.

Cleft makes a note to himself to play Riven again to freshen up his memory.

Ah...what DaDungeon said! I spent hours wondering what I had missed. But I got it in the end. Check your surroundings, and think about how thinks are controlled. Good luck!

TjennerG,

I must have answered a hundred requests for help on this one. It's almost always the white button.

Glad you found it. Enjoy Gehn... scary guy. I love the game!
