Resonance Demo
« on: June 13, 2012, 02:24:31 PM »
Hello, I Pre-Ordered Resonance and I also downloaded the demo. But so far I'm stuck at the beginning with Ray. I know what needs to be done. But I can't seem to figure out how to make him know when he has to do. I did look at his phone and I assume i need to use his STM or LTM somehow but I'm not sure how to access it with the phone any help would be great thank you!

Hi Darkwolf. You need to ask the receptionist about the mainframe, so turn the mainframe into an STM and use it on the receptionist.

I've gotten to the detective (Bennet)'s section but I can't figure out what to do next. I've explored the alley and stuff and I picked up the brick but I can't figure what to do to find a place to scope out the alley.

Ok thanks Dave. Now I got it. I look forward to playing the full game. But this demo should keep me busy till then. Just didn't quite grasp the interface concept. Dragging objects into your inventory and stuff is a little new. But obviously inspired by your Blackwell series interface. Should be easier now that i know what to do. Thanks Again!

How do I find the code for the keypad to get the guy out of the simulator?

Did you get the book out from underneath the chunk of debris? There's a clue in the book (or rather, the piece of paper inside the book)

Yes, I did. Thanks so much, Dave. The demo was amazing to play, the only thing that scared me was the monster.

How do you wire the keypad correctly to get the door open?

That puzzle is totally optional, and probably the hardest and most devlish in the entire game. I am not sure how to solve it myself! :) There's another - much easier - way past the door. Focus your efforts on the boulder outside the lab.

I'm really enjoying the demo. It's great. But I'm stuck!

How do I get the cover off the USB port in the mainframe? I've got the can of pop and the cotton buds (unused?). But nothing I've tried seems to work :( I've even got the username!

Thanks!

Ok I figured out how to get the username and password for the mainframe and I did the DNA thing but I'm not sure what to do with this search criteria is. or this batch program thing. Wow if i actually was a programmer  I'd actually know what the heck this stuff means. Any help would be great thank you!

Actually, Vince had this idea for a while, and I don't think he necessarily borrowed the idea from the clue combination. I suppose I can see some similarities, though.

I've gotten to the detective (Bennet)'s section but I can't figure out what to do next. I've explored the alley and stuff and I picked up the brick but I can't figure what to do to find a place to scope out the alley.

I'm assuming you figured out Bennett's problem, so I won't answer that one. If you need help, though, ask again. As a hint for the wire puzzle, work on finding out how much energy each pin uses up, then find out the combination that uses exactly enough to activate the panel.

There's no USB port on the mainframe interface, but if you got the username, you should know how to reset the password. Don't worry about the swabs for now; their purpose will be apparent soon enough.

You shouldn't need any programming knowledge here, although if you remember the days of DOS and text interface, it'd be easier.

There are two things you need to do in the interface. The first is finding out the purpose of the database. I assume you've done that. The other is to find information on your query. If you forget the name, check your phone; that's why you have a memo pad to begin with.

Oh, I didn't even know there was a clue in some book, just found the clue on the keypad itself...
A great demo in fact - I did not intend to buy the game, as it is not made by Dave Gilbert himself, but now I have certainly changed my mind! :)

Well I did do quite a bit of writing in the later half of the game (as did Janet), although the design and plot was all Vince. :)
