## SPOILER: Opening the safe by the prison cells

I see a number of people have had problems with this one, so here's the solution. This is a two step lock.

For the first step, you have to get a copy of the fingerprint of the person who usually works in that part of the museum (in the present, the prison is a museum). To do this, you need to get a bowl from the present, take it to the past, get the ashes from the lefthand prison cell, bring them back to the future, and put the ashes on the drinking glass on the desk. Use an inventory item and cut a piece of adhesive tape. The tape is on a little stand by the righthand cell in the present. Use the tape to "lift" the fingerprint off the glass, then touch the tape with the fingerprint to the safe.

Thanks for this tip.  It is tricky.

Thanks Robin it worked.  Finished the game as was disappointed it was over.  Wanted more and I am guessing they will continue it as the story indicates.  Hope we wont have to wait too long for it.

thank you i couldn't get the safe open

I could be wrong but on reading the note the last digit should reads 3 the number of cells so where do we get 16 from i admit it works

It's not the number of cells you can see in the scene--it's the total number of cells in the prison, which is 16.

You find this out by looking at the scroll that shows the layout of the prison, and then just counting the number of cells on it.

You can see a screenshot showing this in the walkthrough for this game (posted free here at Gamezebo). To see the walkthrough, just click on the green Tips & Tricks tab just above the whitespace on this page.

The screenshot showing the scroll is under Task 3 for this Chapter.

still cannot open safe got the numbers 16   11  and 63 have tried all sorts of combinations middle top bottom   bottom middle top etc. still cannot open safe is the top the little circle and the middle the medium circle and the top the big circle maybe this is where I am getting things wrong and on the dial there is no exact 16

Same problem here PLUS the game won't save (primal scream!!!!!)...whew, now I feel better

I finally got it to work by jiggling the positionsof the numbers (63/11/16).  Thanks and good luck all
