that infuriating key pins puzzle

#1 Post by FamousAdventurer77 » Sat Dec 29, 2007 6:09 pm

Argh! Totally stuck or I must be retarded.

I can get the first few pins to move up, and I read the strategy guide/WT and the small thread about moving the pins...and still don't get it. I think I need an actual screenshot or something, or literally a step by step interpretation of how to solve it. :roll:

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

See if this helps?

It shows how many clicks up each step along the key is.

Thank you...although I must be missing a brain segment because the picture got me even more confused. :shock: I have no idea what to do with the pins and how to move them after the 4th pin. Do they ALL get moved again?? Argh!

I tried skipping it by hitting F10 then putting in the code from the strategy guide but the F10 cheat hasn't worked on any of the puzzles, let alone the one that is getting the better of me lol.

All the pins (that are unlocked) get moved on EVERY step. Each step, you're pushing the 'key' a little bit further into the lock. So first you only move one pin, then you move two pins, then you move three pins, and so on.

So on the first step, only the rightmost tip of the key is in the lock - so the first pin is pushed up 1 notch. On the second step, the key is pushed a little bit further in, so the second pin is pushed up to 1 notch and the first pin is pushed up to 2 notches.

By the very last step, all the pins will be moving and they will be placed exactly like the key shows, with the furthest-left pin being 5 notches up and the furthest-right pin being 1 notch up.

Maybe this animation will make it clearer:

(If you're having trouble with the cheats, what EXACTLY are you doing? Remember, you don't just hit F10 then type in the number. You have to use the directions from the cheat section. Also, on some keyboards, you may have to adjust your function lock before F10 will work, because some keyboards disable it.)

Key pins

#11 Post by Catryna21 » Tue Mar 25, 2008 5:48 pm

I was hoping it would work, I just looked at the picture of the key to do the directions, would have been easier to do the puzzle at the same time as writing the directions but I couldn't. So with your reply I know it works, I was actually trying to find the answer to the keypad puzzle and stumbled unto here, anyways ty again

Hmmm, maybe I'll try to actually SOLVE the key puzzle now instead of skipping it like I always do. ;)
