just got a copy of indiana jones and the fate of atlantis game for pc. i'm at the part where indy is looking at the chest plate of a statue after the maze (the part where you need to assemble the 5 parts gathered at the maze). now here's my problem: after getting on the view to look at the plate assembly, when you click out to see indy...he's disappeared! i really don't know what happened, tried quitting the game then starting it up but still the same thing! i'm too darned far in the game to give up now! is there any fix for this?
Okay at the beginning there is this "thing" where you have to set sun, moon and volcano on the right position. You need the manual for it. I don't have the manual. Could someone please post the codes or a link to the manual. Thanks.

Hi there! There's good news, and there's bad news...
The good news is i've just looked in the manual and it says the following:
"Once you've started the program, a screen will appear displaying three concentric locking stones, arranged on a spindle. You will be asked to align the locking stones to match the illustrations found in the marginsof this manual. To do so, turn to the page indicated on screen and check the referenced illstrations. Click on the edges of each locking stone until its alignment is correct. Once you have alligned all three stones, click on the central spindle."
The bad news is that there are several drawings of these locking stones scattered across the pages of the manual and my scanner isn't working at the moment.
I decided to play FOA again today, but it seems the voices refuse to work properly; the characters talk for a second or two then fall silent. I've googled for a solution to this but came up empty.
Hello, I'm new here, and I ran into the same problem as Omega5ooo did. But I was unsucessful in getting that crack from the megagames link to work (I believe the error message said something about the site itself running out of space?)
It's really sad; I got FoA, oh, about 3 years ago I think, but I've never been able to get the sound to work right. I tried downloading that patch, but it only works for later computer models; I have Window 98, which I think is the best. The music works in the game, but I can't hear the voices or some of the sound effects. And I have soundblaster!!! Errr, this is why I like consoles better, cause you don't have to deal with all that port number stuff and buffer rate. I think FoA had the best story, and then IM. I'm not sure if Emperor's Tomb is very creditable though. Haha, well same goes with IM, with the Aetherium and all, and the old lady turning young, but I like the whole story of Babel thing much better anyways.
I am getting a little bit agitated with the stone puzzle in the Crete ruins. My dialogue says "To approach Atlantis...with darkness ruling the old city without challenge." I have aligned the city and the darkness in every possible way, but nothing is happening. Am I missing something, or have I happened upon a glitch? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Don't even bother going to the left. There's nothing there in this path. Go to the right and you'll find a pedestal. Use the stones on it. Look at it. As I've said before, the alignment changes from game to game. Here are some that I've seen. Plato: With the darkest night healed by the full moon. Answer: Align the darkness symbol on the sunstone with the tall horns and then align the full moon with it. Plato: With pale dawn shredding the darkest night. Answer: Match the rising sun with the tall horns, and then align it with the new moon. Once you've done it right, a secret door will open. Enter....NOW!
Hey I am a long time indy fan, I recently replayed Fate of Atlantis and I got stuck on the third spindle problem in the room with the minature of the city. The dialouge says "With darkness ruling the city without challenge. Well I set the darkness and city but what for the moon? I tried every moon phase and it won't work. Could anyone help me out?
EDIT: Ok I feel bad for posting something like this that you get a lot and I leafed through old posts and walkthroughs, the only info I could find was "align darkness and city" which I already knew. No combinations with darkness and city will work though!
Hmmmmm... I could be wrong, since I haven't played FoA in several months, but perhaps you should align darkness, the city, and a moon phase - but NOT near the "tall horns" - i.e. the lineup of the three symbols can be pointing for the center to the left, right, or down - not necessarily up...
