Really unique puzzles! I brute forced the billiard balls though - can anyone explain why the solution is what it is?

I'm totally stuck on the billiard balls. Obviously the clues are the

paintings

, but I'm not understanding what they mean...

I had to do the same, Aviv. No clue why it works like it does.

Also, I didn't understand what to do with

the text in the book.

The text in the book tells you how to get the balls from the paintings. I found the book after getting the balls.

I brute forced the billiard balls too.

However...

I think the secret is the position of each colored circle on each painting that remains once you have the balls

I brute forced too and then I looked at the hint.

The colored lines describe the movement the balls make after the cue ball is hit if they're in the proper order. They show a picture if my explanation doesn't help.

Looked at the solution for the billiard balls.
Terrible...

Even the 1st ball on their solution looks wrong considering where the ball will be hit.

If it help :

The first ball hit is suppoessed to be lined up perfectly straight and proceed the way the queue is facing diagonally towards the wall......to me it looks like it will hit the edge so I was picking green

I also had to brute-force the billiard balls.

I was mildly amused when, having accumulated a lot of junk in my inventory

I managed to accidentally create a battering ram.

Uh, that was kind of unnecessary to destroy a door AND window just to get a little gear. Why couldn't I just forgo all of that fuss and push the battering ram through the weakest wall/window in the room?

Amusing to have an escape game be all pedantic about how sharp the blade you use to rip open a cushion is, but then lets you be gung ho with a battering ram.

I cannot for the life of me figure out the

billiard ball puzzle! :(

I force solved it, but I still don't understand how the clues relate to it.

the lines of movement that the billiard balls are supposed to make do not seem to match up when I envision the cue ball being struck.

I just checked out the solution to the billard puzzle on the walkthrough, which actually has a picture of it...

The positioning of the balls in relation to the cue ball is displayed very poorly to say the least..

Also if these "rules" apply, the red and the yellow ball should be interchangeable

Bad execution of what i think could have been a nice twist among all those repeating types of puzzles you see in almost every escape game.

For the painting in the secret passage

click the painting on the left, not the expanded one in the mirror. D'oh!

I agree with Preppy about the billiard balls. I think it was unfair to

have them at the wrong orientation. Or at least, I didn't see anything to indicate the paintings should be turned 90 degrees left before interpreting the marks.
