I've pretty much got through the game to the last few minutes. I've got to where I give Vlad the shawl and I get to choose either the Rubiayat, the notebook or the real necklace but I don't know which to choose. I took the notebook once and managed to get on the lifeboat.
When I got back to London I was filled with metal by a friendly nazi. Are the other consequences equally enjoyable?

I'm sorry to say that if Vlad has more than one of the Rubiayat, Willie's notebook, and/or Georgia's real necklace, the game's as lost as the Titanic. If you get all four off the ship (or ensure that the Rubiayat and necklace are lost), you will get the optimum ending.

The thing is I don't know how to get them all. Or to ensure that the Rubiayat and necklace are lost. Could you give me any tips?

If memory serves...

WARNING: TOTAL GAME SPOILERS!!

Rubiayat: In one of the boiler rooms' bunker boxes. I forget which. Talk to Max and meet Zeitel and Willie, then take Zeitel's pipe to Trask, who will tell you to take it to the Turkish Bath. When you get there, turn on the faucet and leave it on while looking at the mirror. When you get to the boiler room, talk to Vlad, then go down to the correct coal bunker and put the Rubiayat in any other switch box. DO NOT take it now; Vlad will kill you! Go get his package from Sasha and give it to him; Vlad will leave and you can take the Rubiayat. Take it to Penny, then give it to the Purser.


The Painting: It's in the cargo hold. Keep doing favors for the Purser (send Thayer's telegram; while he's gone look at the manifest. Leave and ask to get in the cargo hold, offer to and find Mr. Strauss' cufflink in a chair in the reception room) until he leaves for the second time, when you can take the keys to Carter's Renualt. If the painting's missing, don't worry; Jack will trade it for his sister's baby while the Titanic is sinking.

I also do a bit of loyality: Talk to Zeitel when you get the painting as the ship is sinking, and save Georgia by trading it with the antidote. Then win the pass from Riviera (save before trying to win it!), and give it to Zeitel. (If you see an animation feature water flooding a boiler room, Zeitel's on the aft Boat Deck; approach him by going around via the starboard side, you'll see why later.)


Necklace: Georgia's necklace? To quote Charles, it's a fake. Talk to him in the smoking room after having a run-in with him in the Lambath's cabin, and he'll tell you Sasha has it. Go to A-14 and talk to the crewman; when he leaves, switch off the power. Wait until Sasha leaves, and then turn the power back on and go inside. Solve the Russian doll puzzle (the inner numbers add up to the numbers on the outside), and take the real necklace. Put the fake in the doll; Sasha will catch you and kill you if you don't!


Notebook: If you saw the alternate ending, I assume you know it's in the dummy funnel and how to get there. After the Titanic hits the berg, you have two options: Gas Zeitel with the pen (you DID see Penny after finding out about Willie, right?) or give him the notebook. Giving him the notebook will take you to a bomb in Cabin C-59, while gassing Zeitel means you meet Vlad and a large monkey wrench. If the latter, get Claris' shawl (she's in the lounge) as the ship sinks, then go to the turbine room and trade the shawl for the notebook.

Then get the hell off the ship!! The way I usually do it is this: Don't walk on the aft port Boat Deck until you have everything. When you do, go there; between the aft funnels, the Gorse-Joneses will appear and invite you to a seat in Lifeboat 10. I urge you to take it. ;-)

Or, if you saw an animation of a rocket being fired, wait until you see one of the the Titanic's propellers rising out of the water. Morrow will offer you a space in the last boat (just don't yell at him about needing to get off the ship!)

Hope all this helps!

Ah yes...it's been a while since I last played, though I have the game virtually memorized. College students using WinXP don't have much time for those kinda things.

No I didn't redo it at that point but the advice you gave me made so much sense, for example, moving the Rubaiyat into another coal chute, that's just genius, hehe. I redid the game today and I completed it,

. I've had a lot of time on my hands recently because I've had to stay off college because I've just come out of hospital and so I make good use of my time by playing computer games...

You always seem to be online at the same time as me...
I never would have done it without your help though, (and that Russian Doll puzzle almost killed me, the concept seems so simple, yet was so difficult)

That we do...and oh dear yes, do I remember the doll puzzle. For an undercover agent of the Crown, Carlson sure can be ineffective at times.

Although I'm loathe to turn this thread into a classified section, if you ever wanted to discuss the game or actual history further, I'm on AIM as USSManhattan.

I've played "Titanic Adventure Out Of Time" through its entirety and even "won" a few times.

However, I've never been able to find the painting in the cargo hold. No problem getting the keys to the Renault, getting down there, getting past the guard and turning on the lights of the Renault, etc. but the painting is always missing from the frame.

Has anyone ever got the painting on the first try ? :)

"I live to serve !"

Yes. My memory's rusty, but here's what you do: Get the Rubaiyat as fast as possible, then get the painting IMMEDIATELY.

If you were still late, no worries. Jack Hacker has the painting, and he'll give it to you while the Titanic is sinking if you get his sister her baby back.

Thanks, Brad. I guess I'm just not fleet of foot enough (or fleet of mouse and arrows :)) to get the painting in the hold.

However, on the times that I have "won" I did get the letter , trade the letter for the baby and trade the baby for the painting.

Brad-

Yes, I have gotten all four things off the ship.
(Only at least once or twice :)

I must admit I cheated a bit and bought the book with the hints and solutions. (I found one at Half Price Books for a fraction of the original price.)

I used it mainly for solving the doll and the bomb problems. The painting was the hardest thing to get (for me, that is). I worked through the game step by step, saving each time after I had gotten each thing. On each step sometimes I had to go back and do it over again until I finally got it. It's been some time so I can't remember exactly how I went about it other than the above notes. When I did get all four things I got off the ship at the last moment when "Third Officer Morrow" orders you into the last lifeboat. Other times, and when not quite so successful, when the "Gorse-Jones'" invited me to get into the boat with them.

To help get the painting on the first time, heres what to do:


AVOID talking to Zeitel or Max on the grandstairs reception. its a waste of time

only do the stuff the purser tells you. one you got the keys, proceed IMMIDIETLY to cargo hold.

DO NOT talk to Penny on beat deck and listen in on the convosation between Sasha and Zeitel untill AFTER you get the painting.


if you do all this, the painting should still be there. Just keep your eyes on the painting and nothing else and youll get it,worry about anything else later.
