Help? (spoiler)

Recommended Posts

I got the Skyline key but I don't understand where to use it. The only place where I saw a skyline is in the alley after I used the lamp there but I can't find a use point..

I need some help with the lamp, can't really figure that out. (I've tried in the ally, but can't really find anywhere to place it).

Hint 1:

***Don't think of it as a lamp, think of it as lights.****

Hint 2:

***Use it in the car scene.****

AHHH GOT IT :)

(I just needed the right distance I guess)

Yeah, I'm trying to fit the key to the Skyline, but I'm not sure where I have to stand, or maybe I got a bug. I got the message that I figured it out, but then all I keep getting is the generic "Doesn't work here" bit.

It would've been helpful to have a dedicated comment on this use of the item with a hint on how far or close I need to be in order to complete it. In this particular case the generic comment isn't very helpful.

I'm going to try it again tomorrow (it's almost midnight here in Poland).

@Lord_Kristof **spoiler** **that's not the place to use the key after "figuring it out"**

HELP! I'm still stuck on the key and postcard puzzles. I know I have to use the key on the Skyline in the first area, but can't find the right spot. Should I be looking to the left or right skyscrapers, where should I be standing? Near or far from the lamp? And the postcard?!? ARG!! Help!

Spoiler ***The postcard is used to create the skyline in the alley. To use the key, you have to back up until the openings in the buildings line up to create the edges to the key, and the key turns blue.****

I literally got this within minutes of posting my frustration. Typical! Thanks for the help, regardless. I was trying to use the key first. You have to postcard first.

Also stuck at the postcard and key. TrueStoryGuy's answer didn't help me.

EDIT: ah, it was just a matter of being more distant.

Postcard you need to use at the point where you initially come into the scene or close to it, if you venture further into the scene the interaction point vanishes.

Postcard solution:

***The right place to use the postcard, is where it covers the mural excatly on the screen.***
