Maybe it's just my joy and fondness for the titanic, but i honestly thought this game was one of the best i have ever played growing up, and still love it to this day. Does anyone else share my sentiments, or am I alone here. Alas my copy has slipped my collection, but i am searching again for this gem of a game

No, you're not alone. There are several of us here that enjoy it as well, myself included, even though it's not entirely accurate and not all the rooms can be accessed, due to budget constraints. It does provide a good form of entertainment, even if you just wish to tour the ship.

I've played my copy several times now, but I haven't gotten tired of it. You can find it on www.ebay.com for reasonable prices. In fact, there are twelve copies being auctioned off right now. Or you can visit this site:

I found an old gaming website that had a downloadable trailer for Titanic--Adventure Out of Time and a patch to fix computers that stall out when the game is played. I also have the seven additional tour guides downloaded. You get three tour guides with your CD-ROM disks. If anyone wants these zip files, email me at [email protected] and I will try to attach them to a return email. Robert H. Gibbons

My second disk no longer works and I hope that Hammerhead Ent. is still in business? I'd like to purchase the game again. I so enjoy playing, even to this day. Would any of you know if they are still active? Thanks

I just got a copy of this game for Christmas this past year and was so excited because it was a complete surprise. I had seen the game online and was drooling over it but just couldn't come up with the extra couple of bucks to buy it. Imagine my surprise tearing the xmas wrapping free on Christmas morning! I couldn't wait to put it in and play it and was met by yet another surprise...I couldn't get it to play in my computer. It took me up until about a month ago to figure out what the problem was but now I'm good to go. Odd thing is, I feel a certain amount of agita playing the game part of it. I've "toured the ship" so many times I'm confident of my way around now, but I'm actually nervous to play the game part of it. Does that seem strange? Curiosity is getting the best of me now though so I think I'll give it a go this weekend.

Donna: Don't forget to download the seven extra tour guides from the Titanic--Adventure Out of Time website. That makes a total of 10 tour guides. Also, if you need help, there are websites with step by step guides to the different levels of the game. Your ultimate goal is to change the past so your future is changed, too. Robert H. Gibbons

This is for any of the experts out there: In the PC game, "Titanic AOOT," the "lift" only goes down as far as "D" Deck, and you have to walk around the corner and continue down a narrow staircase to reach "E" Deck. But in James Cameron's Titanic film, Thomas Andrews tells Rose to take the elevator all the way to the bottom, to "E" Deck. Which is correct, as relates to the actual ship? Anyone??

According to the Final Report of the British Enquiry into the Titanic Disaster:

Access of passengers to the Boat deck. - The following routes led directly from the various parts of the first class passenger accommodation to the Boat deck: From the forward ends of A, B, C, D, and E decks by the staircase in the forward first class entrance direct to the Boat deck. The elevators led from the same decks as far as A deck, where further access was obtained by going up the top flight of the main staircase.

Also, if you check the Deck Plans on this ET website, you will find the elevators went down to E Deck. Robert H. Gibbons

Thank you, Robert. I'm a newbie, I'll be sure to check out the deck plans. Jeannine

You're not alone !

I've actually "won" a few times (only after buying the "cheat book") , but after trying with much frustration to repeat my earlier successes I've gone back to the "tour" mode and also back to enjoying it. :)

I'll third David's comments!!

I actually had a try at it last night and got through it in about an hour. (Bless that little cheat book)

I had to buy that damn book just so I could find where the cigarettes were at the end. Yeesh.

I'll either have another go at that tonight or Titanic: Challenge Of Discovery. Both are great, in my opinion.

This is my all-time favorite game! I got it shortly after it came out, and my kids played it first. After having won it several times, with alternate endings, I decided to have some REAL fun! I began saying all the WRONG things--you know, just to tick the characters off. There is an amusing scene with Max Sidleman in the very beginning of the game, if you avoid him up on the boat deck (you know, when he calls to you, "Hey--C'Mere!") and DON'T bother going to the wireless room to retrieve that message like Penny told you to. Instead--go down to the promenade on "A" Deck, port side, and you'll run into Max strolling up and down. Get in his way and she what he has to say! (My apologies to all the French people of the world!).

You can't take this defiant act too far throughout the game, or you'll never get past a certain point. But experiment and see what reactions you get from the different characters when you act in an alternate way.

I think one of the most repulsive characters has GOT to be that creepy evangelist or whatever he is, you know, the widower. The tone he uses sounds like Frankenstein and those weird buggy eyes! One time, I avoided running into him and was surprised by him in the corridor on my way down to lower "F" deck. Really freaky. Especially if you're playing late at night and the lights are off! (Shiver here)

Anyway, once you've beaten the game a number of times, its always good to explore the other avenues, not caring for the consequences, of course, sometimes with not-so-nice results. But whenever I get homesick for Titanic, this game is where I come to, to walk those passageways and stroll along her decks. If you haven't tried it yet, go to the "Poop Deck" and click on the railing and then again out to sea. Its especially cool off the very back of the ship. Hmmm....must've been the view that Rose got when she was hanging off the ship!

Cheers!

LOL Jeannine! Good post!

I've gone around and ticked off the characters myself just to see where it led me, and as you say...nowhere. You have to maintain a certain decency to the characters or you're screwed!

Try provoking the stoker down in the boiler room, and he'll give you quite a verbal rebuttal. Also, tell Georgia you won't help her, and she'll have an expletive for you! Robert H. Gibbons

Good thing this is a game. In the real world, provoking a stoker would have earned somebody a much sterner response then a tounge lashing. These were a very tough breed of men. They had to be.

Hi Matthew, Glad I was able to bring a chuckle into your day! I've played this game so much, I'm always terrified I'll accidentally break one of the CDs, and I know they're difficult to come by. I dread that "someday" when the current computers will no longer support this game!

Robert, I have provoked the stoker! Its a riot, isn't it? It just keeps going and going. I don't remember Georgia's expletive! Oh well, just going to have to force myself to play this game again!

Michael, I hear your warning about the stokers, but I'm still more afraid of that creepy missionary (I called him an evangelist before by mistake), Rev. Trout.

Does anyone have any special Titanic plans for Friday night, the 94th anniversary? I may be a major geek, but I plan to sit up and watch the entire James Cameron Titanic--with the original DVD on my PC and the deleted scenes on my nearby tv. Then go back and forth between them, integrating the scenes into the movie. Darn that James Cameron for making this difficult! Just kidding--for his contributions in bringing us lots of cool Titanic stuff, he's a god to me!

Cheers!

Those coal shovels could have been very lethal weapons ! Insulting his mother could have resulted in the use of such in a much sterner response than a tongue lashing ! :)

When you are taking the tour, try out the various pieces of equipment in the Gymnasium, including the camel ride. You can box the punching bag with the same program that you box Vlad on the funnel ladder. I think you can turn the ship in the wheelhouse, but the officer comes in and tells you to stop, and the ship comes back on course. I would imagine there is a thread of conversation for every character at every place there are the different answers to their questions. Robert H. Gibbons
