    Music Riddle in the Subterranean City

    EDIT: Problem fixed. Found out what I had forgotten to do.

    Okay so I know what to do here because I have cleared the game once or twice before, and decided to do it again - because it is probably the best game ever, certainly part of the best franchise ever.

    Anyhow, so I got to the top of the ledge where the walkway collapses, and you jump across, and climb the ladder. When I get to the top of the ladder, I follow the water upstream into the cave, and at the end of the cave I am supposed to do the 1-2-1-3 riddle, right.

    Here's the thing though: There are no glowing glyphs on the wall. They aren't there. Any thoughts what might have gone wrong? Anything I have missed?

    Notes: I picked up the two pebbles but decided to kick seven kinds of hell outta the trolls anyway - seeing as they only cower. I highly doubt this has anything to do with anything but its additional information on how I got to where I am, specific to this scene, so why not.

    But yeah, any thoughts? Or am I just blind?

    There they are

    You have to hold the glowing egg, THEN approach the wall. Youll see the glyphs.

    Am I the only one who initially got creeped out by the notes that the creatures would sing and were also found in the music riddle? XD

    I reloaded the game as I remembered that the water wheel played the tune.

    My biggest problem was a great story so I couldn't waste time onto some stupid riddles, I wanted to continue with story

    When I play games for the first time, I'm having this "What's next!?" syndrome. I just can't wait, I must know

    I could never make it out from that, for some reason. But I could pick it out of the humming and the background music just fine.

    Same. The game was what I was after, not the puzzle solving, really. I did enjoy it but it was alittle long-winded in some places

    Hehhh... I've always thought that Dreamfall is almost not an adventure game at all, as the puzzles are waaaaaay too easy

    Have you learnt maths? The difference between "sufficient condition" and "necessary condition"?

    Urgh maths.
    I don't mind maths, but my teacher's a lot boring.

    I liked all aspects of DF but I'm having trouble replaying it at the moment. It's seems a little slow...
    Meh. Maybe it's just me. I really wanna play TLJ again
