Stuck!

Hey everybody,

I have tried and tried now, but can't get past this passage of the game. I am in the Cistern. I have lowered the bridge and done all the little puzzles and turned the valves in the room with water. Then I have gone back to the main room, where I have to go down some stairs, but I need a vaccine. What do I do?

Thanks.

The vaccine is in the morgue, behind the eastern bridge - have you lowered both bridges yet?

Did you pull on the levers on either side of the door that you use to enter the machine room 'hall'?

On either side of the door where you enter the "Puzzle area", are 2 levers. one for each bridge. one drops all the way, the other you need to get working (Puzzle).
I hope you got the stomack to hold the vaccine. I know I wouldn't.

The second bridge won't lower and I seem to have done every single puzzle I can find. It won't lower!

ARGH! Me Wanna play!

And yes, I pulled the levers on both sides of the door.

And yes, I pulled the levers on both sides of the door.
1. enter the control room
2. find the three pipes
3. attach them to the left wall, in the room at the very end of the control room
4. go back to the machine with four levers, which can be moved
5. move them (don't know which way to be honest)
6. move to the room with the three weights and make sure they mirror the ones which are already stuck in position
7. leave the control room and move the lever

Ok now climb back down the ladder to the bottom of the cistern. Pick up a rock and throw it back up to the platform at the top of the ladder. Climb back up and throw the rock at the underside of the bridge.

Happy hunting.

thank you everybody it worked. But... The bridge is only halfway down now. I have to dislodge it somehow... How do I do this?

This puzzle is really beyond my comprehension!

Thank you.
