From what you have left Jamie, it seems like you should have triggered a locked door to open.

This game is brilliant, probably better than the originals!!

However, I'm stuck! I can't work out how to get the boots from the goal. I also have a problem in the glowing caves. I've got the Jolly Roger but can't go through the door to the Governor's Mansion. Do I have to do something to unlock it or is there something wrong with my version?

I'd be REALLY grateful for any hints or tips as have been trying for a couple of days now and going crazy.

nope, it's still locked as far as I can tell.

EDIT:: yup, checked again and it's locked. When is it supposed to open?

Jamie, unless Colin's changed it once you have the devil's teeth and the other 8 parts of the scroll, the door should be unlocked so that you can get the ladder and the last two bits of scroll.

I had the same problem but resolved it after revisiting the the budda like visionary seer character sat on his throne, he reveals a scroll from behind his chair (if you do the puzzle there).

I already have the scroll from there.

EDIT:: nevertheless, in my quest to finish it, I have re-visited the old git, and then gone back to the door. It's still locked.

Mmm, can only assume must be another one somewhere you've not acquired although as when I played it unless I missed something I couldn't see any connection or link to why the door would suddenly become unlocked just because you acquired an extra part of the scroll. Didn't make no sense. :v2_dizzy_confused3:
