(Dynamix/Sierra) Hints by Mario Moeller
Firstly, go to the City Hall, buy some roses and take them to
Karen, where you receive your cupboard keys. Use these back at home to
get several necessary objects.
Always take your ID card with you wherever you go.
To enter the Pleasure Dome, simply leave your weapon at home.
"The Jake" is the person at the end of the bar. Show him the
photo of the Mayor's daughter from the fax machine.
At Chen's place you will have to be quick; don't worry about the
bathroom, watch the vid messages, and go to the bedroom where you
touch the dragon's eye and blow up the hidden safe. Take the parchment
to the old man who is in an alley to the right of city hall.
Go back to The Jake later in the game to set up a meeting with him.
Climb down into the sewer, blow up the padlock, and use the wire
testers to tap the vidphone. Refer to the schematic diagram on the
You can get into DH's either with Snake's ID card or via the
helicraft found later at the reservoir. Tell the girl you recognise
her to get access to the security room. Here open all locks except the
break room, then push the security system off lever down. You won't be
able to do this and will be prompted for a colour code. Use the
fortune cookie from the old man here, and then shut the laser gate
off. Then switch the security system on again. Now, rush upstairs.
Go to the Janitor's closet, take the screwdriver and open both
panels. Turn the wires off using the switch and use the screwdriver on
the components. Take some wires.
When you're in the room with Karen, use the wires on her (when on
the main picture). Now closeup to her and undo the wires.
A handy hint: Simply kill yourself immediately in the arcade
sequences five times and you can bypass them!
