help!! missing 2 gems on 14 but which island is 14?
I was wondering if there is anyway to uncover all of lonely iceburg? I have no swimmers and I can't build. I found the sphere of clarity so I cleared up that part I wanted to search the rest of the island. Thank you.
NESS.. i am far from computer literate ..hahah i am not sure how to change the data.. if you would be so kind when you have a few minutes to tell me how to do it without messing up my comp i would really appreciate it.. because i will not be able to finish the game without the help i will get from either you. someone else or jay..
ty so much in advance for any help i will recieve on this problem.. if your not sure what i am talking about please check my posts above..
teenie.. the secret passage is not really a secret passage but a walkway through the
the mountains.. look for a small path between the mts which i think if i recall is in the lower right hand part of the island..
So my rainbow road is at 99% I have gone through the "see how many jewels are left on the island" cheat and no gems were found. What did I miss?
hye!this game is great and looks like it got many people in trouble as well..i'm stuck at the second island in shark archipelago..
1- i dunno where to find the crystal to be able to transport to the 3rd island
2- i've found the energy sphere but dunno wut to do with it
3- where to find the water symbol to open the gate and get the chest behind it
..anyone,plz help me..
i wish i can help you KIK because i am stuck on shark island too.. i got the values.. put the spere in the right place..went to the chest and it will not open.. the chest says BRING CONTENTS TO CHEST.. WHY DO I KEEP GETTING THAT MESSAGE WHEN I TRY TO OPEN MY CHESTS.. WHAT CONTENTS DO I NEED TO BRING TO GET THE SCUBA GEAR.. ETC ETC.. TOTALLY STUCK HERE
ANY help is so apprecited
unless you use a cheat there is no way you will be able to uncover all the fog on lonely iceburg
kikilala and grace
there are only 3 color crystal you need to find
red , yellow and blue, technically white is just a transporter, put in the crystal in the holder and stay inside the brown dotted area to successfully transport to the next island
there are 2 value and 2 energy sphere to be found in all
2 value and 1 sphere is to used for the chest that is blocked by the water
the other sphere is used for the reflecting light house which lead u to the water rune
hints for getting the blue crystal is on the guidstone
Level 14 is Volcano Island.
Thank you for the wise counsel of one who's been there!
Look on the game's Main Menu page, below the buttons. If your game version is 1.0, there's a missing graphic for one gem there. Many game vendors have already changed to the corrected version 1.02. See if you can download the game again from where you bought it. If you can't (shame on them!), the instructions for fixing the data file has been shared in several older posts in this forum - always in a spoiler format. See if you can find it doing a page-by-page Search (Ctrl-F) for "99%" or "last gem."
If your game is version 1.02, someone else may have an idea why the information doesn't agree. My problem with "see how many gems are left" is that the name of the file (minus the island number) was never given. Is it a .dat file or an .xml or something else? Which folder? Let's see if someone can clarify that for both of us. I finally finished the game, but I would still like to know.
1. I don't remember where the cystal is, but I think the color was different from the first one. Maybe that will help you. If not, did you check Jay's hints in the Islands walkthrough (in a spoiler) at the top of this page?
2. There is more than one place to put an energy sphere. You'll figure it out when more of the map is visible.
3. The water icon is one of the last things most of us found. Don't worry until you finish everything else.
XASHER... i got the first spehre with the values.. went to the chest and tried to get the scuba gear.. the chest will NOT OPEN it says bring contents to chest.. what contents are they talking about... what am i missing.. if i can't get the scuba gear then i can not swim to the other islands..
NOT ONLY AM I HAVING PROBLEMS OPENING CHESTS ON THIS ISLAND I AM HAVING PROBLEMS ON OTHER ISLANDS.. I HAVE NO IDEA whatsoever what the contents are tht i have to bring to these chest.. totally stumped here..
Calm down for a bit.
Did you put the energy sphere and the 2 valves
in the position? If so just bring your scout there.
A unit must be near the chest for it to be open.
Just want say this is a greaaaat site and you all are wonderful help tytyty
Oh my, you did it XASHER. Thank you so so much. I didn't know a scout needed to be near the chest. Now you solved a few other chest problems U was having. Thank you so very much. And I wasn't yelling when I was using capital letters. I was just emphasizing my point. Sorry if you thought i was yelling. Never ever. You are great. So is everyone else on here. Thank you.
[Edit: Grace, on the internet and especially in discussion forums, using all capital letters is generally interpreted as yelling. Just thought you'd like to know. :) -Pam]
I am on comet crash site and I believe the last item on the island before entering the comet itself is to find the entrance to the comet. I have found what appears to be a break in the mountains (orange & blue crystals on either side embedded in the hills). All other items done including the crossbows and the totems. However, the heroes cannot walk through. The FAQ says they will not be able to "walk through" per se, but will trigger the end of the island/scene. Well, nothing is triggering. Am I in the wrong spot? What am I missing? I've placed my scout flag every which way and nothing is working.
Grace are you still having problems getting yeti Island to load?
If you have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game already and that didn't help, then try deleting only the Island of Yeti (it will be something like quest-xxxxx-10.dat) dat file and then you will only have to play that one island again (Sorry-but atleast this isn't a boring game lol). Actually you can try that if you haven't uninstalled and reinstalled anyways. I have done this a few times and it didn't ruin anything. Close the whole game before you do all this.
If you are using XP then the dat file will be located at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Enkord\Totem Tribe (That is where mine is located, but Jay has some other places listed also in the blue section at the top of this forum).
Hope that's the info you needed, if not, don't worry about asking. I have no problems answering.
Never mind! Figured it out! Thanks!
Hi. My name is Loco... and I am a cheater. This is my second time around with this game. I beat it w/out cheats first time(72%) but then I had to go back and find every single little gem. First, I updated to v 1.03. Second, I put in the FOW cheat. Third, I colored every gem a nice BIG BRIGHT PINK square so there's no way I could miss it. Lastly, upon completion of the Crash Site, I went back through every level swimming and clicking on those gems I could not touch earlier. Imagine my disappointment when I checked my rainbow and found a mere 93%!! What am I missing? No, I didn't forget the pyramids in Worship Island. Are there more hidden like that one? Someone please take pity on this poor soul who can't seem to cheat properly. Thanks!
Also, I forgot to mention that I did try the gem-finding cheat but that only tells you how many total gems are on that level. I just want to find what I've missed.
karen, about the comet crash site:
All 3 directions you can point the crossbow will blow something up. You'll have to adjust the power setting, though (with the two lower buttons). It's 3 gems per explosion, IIRC.
Lost temple--I'm finished with every level, but the very last and don't want to enter the comet until getting the last jewels from Lost Temple. I read somewhere there's puzzle to solve with posts? What Posts?
First we need to know what islands it's telling you that you have gems still... There are gems that are hidden or require you to do something to get to them, some in chests some by way of the arrow in the comet site, some by way of the Sphere of Clarity etc...
Storm... on what I have seen on this site 14 is Volcano Island? Hope that helps??
Ok I was late there helping Storm !! Sorry. I have done the 3 with the bow and arrow have picked up all chests, plus the pyramid, I have gone and over the Islands several times, and have heard so many people saying they have got 99% that it has to be the same we are all missing right?? So you peeps out there come on HELP even if some differ I still go checksy :-) cheers and thanx. Cher
chezza - since there are so many gems throughout the game, it's really difficult to recommend any one or two gems that you might not have found.
Instead, I can offer to look through your .dat files for you to identify what island(s) still have unfound gem(s), and what color. Just zip up all your quest-xxx.dat files (the location of which is described above in the walkthrough guide section), and send them to out "contact" email address, a link to which is found in the footer of this page.
Hi! I'm in the Comet and Aruku and Guro keep committing suicide! What is going on? Does this happen to everyone? Help!!!! JMAR
I'm on Volcano Island and can't find the scroll and can't seem to get to the last pyramid. Can anyone help me plz!!! Been stuck for 2 days!!
Jmar - in our FAQ above under "How do I beat the final level?" you will find advice on how to protect the heroes. Check it out and see if that helps. :)
I associated any form of yelling with my mum
although she live miles apart from me now ^^;;
just thought you should know that
anyway glad to be service to you.
oh and unless the chest 'ask' you to give it some specify items ,that is the way to get chests to be open
You get 9 coins from the arrow on the comet site (different directions and different amounts of green dots)
Oops forgot to say that spoiler was for the arrow on the Comet site...
I am on the crash site, apparently about ready to enter the comet, but what about the guardian moon? Am I missing that one somehow?
be sure to check out the faq in the walk through guide
there are 2 additional secret island ,
Lonely Iceberg and the Lost temple.
every island has 21 gems
[three of the same color , 7 colors in all]
except for volcano which has 20 gems in version 1.02, don't know whether they have fix that in 1.03
[Edit: Versions 1.02 and 1.03 are virtually identical, and there is no difference between the two with respect to the gems. -Jay]
the only way know how many gems you have been missed out for sure is to count them yourself
as you go along
the creator of this game have done a very good job of designing the game in a way even some of the cheats cant really help you.
Where the files are:
Mine on my XP are at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Enkord\Totem Tribe it may be different for yours and you are looking for the files with the .dat extension
Ness & Xasher:
Thanks for the help and good advice. I'll keep better count for my 3rd adventure. This walkthrough is excellent and the blog is fantastic help. Thanks again.
i have done exactly what you all said about finding the data files to change or delete a island and i can not find those files on my comp anywhere.. i even did a search for enkord and there is nothing in my search that comes close to what you are all talking about..
i am using XP gateway computer.. i looked in my c driver i looked under my totem game properties.. i am not sure if i am doing something wrong or they just aren't on my comp.. hahaha..i doubt they aren't on here.. hahah
i have followed the directions to get to the data and yet it is not findable
please help.. so i can get back to YETI Island
thank you so much
can you give the locations/islands where the 7 coins are located? i'm stuck at 6. thanks
Please help! I've been looking for the 12th papaya on Worship Island for so long that I'm ready to headbutt my monitor. I found a map that showed where 11 of each of the fruits are but that 12th would be, of course, the one that I'm missing. Please save my computer from a horrible fate. Anyone who can show me a map where the papayas are will officially be my favorite person ever. :) lol. Thanks for the help!
Ness--I didn't find any gems on Lost Temple and I saw in FAQ that there are 3 chests, but you have to solve a puzzle about some posts by the water. What posts? I don't see any posts anywhere on this island. To be 21 gems from Rainbow Island is killing me!
So if you or anyone could please tell me where to find these "posts" I will gladly figure out the puzzle/mystery, but I have to knwo where to start. THANKS
I need help Island of Worship please!!
I've seen the picture of the map, I got 11 of each fruit, I even painted all the fruits and still couldn't find them... am I missing something??? is there another way to get the other fruits?? ... please... help :(
hi. I am way behind everyone else. I'm stuck on seagull island. I have 6 of the marbles, but can't get the archers to continue. I have dragged them to the trees, but nothing happens. Di i have to build each time i want them to attack again? ty for any help
Cant thank you enough :) the comet crash site did still hold the missing 6 and I am now at 100% and going on to guardian moon.
XNYR you have to
you have to kill the black crow on the left side by the tree with the eggs to get the last coal
make sure you go to your Windows Explorer, under view or tool tab , click on folder option
it will pop out an new menu, go to view tab and go to advance setting--- files and folder--- hidden files and folder and click on show hidden files and folders and apply it.
now you can see the files now.
sorry if i missed a step, I'm just recalling for memory how to see the hidden files on xp
I'm using vista now
google this question
" how to see the hidden files on xp"
for more clearly instructions
The location of Totem Tribe's files depends on where the game was purchased. Big Fish has its special default folder, as do many other vendors.
What I was specifically asking for was the NAME of the file. Are we talking about quest_41_14.dat for example? Or are there other .dat files? As long as a cheat is being explained, the rough name of the file should be given in addition to as much of the hard drive path as will be common to all installations.
(e.g. Totem Tribe\data\texture\game\item\*.png for gems and other search objects)
I think that one bit of information was simply overlooked when the cheat was written and posted.
go back to worship island
write down the different color on each hut starting from the left.
the huts location in the min map are form like a small arc
now go back to the lost temple and key in those colors
you should able to see the 3 chest appear just above the pool of water
Check the Walkthrough guide near the top of this page, in the robin's-egg-blue rectangle. It's in the spoiler under "The Islands, etc." and then under "Worship Island." All the information is there, plus a lot more for other islands and quests. Good luck!
Totem Tribe V1.03
Just downloaded V1.03 and installed over V1.02... Deleted data file for Guardian Moon Level... Gone back to play this level and yes I have more puzzle to complete... This may be the reason for confusion for request on lightning and orbs...
[Edit: I want to be sure there is no confusion about this. v1.03 contains a few minor fixes plus a few added riddles on Guardian Moon, since the developers felt that level was a bit too easy and straightforward. All game-breaking bugs were fixed in v1.02, so if you have that version you do not need v1.03. -Jay]
You're right, pava. That was my doing. I'll update the cheat with a bit more help about the quest files.
The quest files have filenames similar to: quest-xxxxx-nn.dat
And are stored in the Enkord directory, the location of which may be different depending on where you downloaded and installed your game from, and whether you're running Vista or XP.
[Edit: done. I hope that it's a bit clearer and easier to understand now. :) -Jay]
Lost Temple--figured out what Jay meant by little brown posts. He meant the LIGHT posts (I thought of them as lanterns, duh).
Here's the spolier to finding the 3 chests of gems and how to get extra fire power...
1.Gems--R,B,Y,P,G 2. Extra fire Power B,Y,P,G,R
tyvm grace, but i'm building the archery huts to get the archers, and they are not going to the last tree. I'm even tearing down the un-necessary bldngs, and building the 2 to get the archer hut, still no go. If it helps, there is only 1 tree left with crows
Thanks for that clarification on the Guardian Moon issue (1.02 vs 1.03), Su and Jay. Is 1.03 at Casual Gameplay, and could those of us who'd like to try the new Guardian Moon download it and install over 1.02 without issues?
xnyr, just use the battle flag to direct them to the tree.
I was just going to write you about the posts for the gems but
I didn't know about the extra fire power...
xnyr, If I remember right, I think the same happened to me until I figured out
you need to make sure that you have all the arrow upgrades for your archers. ie lvl 1 with the bow and arrow in the workshop I think it is. That also helps your arrow tower to work better in later levels too :) I think for every 'patch' of crows you will find 2 pulsating stones.
I have now joined the forum... I posted before as Su...
You would have to go to Casual Games and see if they have the new version...
I had no issue with installing over v1.02 the only thing needs to be done is make a copy of the last data file your game is saved to and rename it ***.old instead of ***.dat then delete the ***.dat... it will have 27 in it... Mine read quest-537573616e-27.dat
Hope I did this right...
Decided to join you guys... Signing in as KiwiSu... Hope I didn't do anything wrong... I don't normally put my two cents worth in (rather shy and afraid of saying the wrong thing)... I was curios about the extra puzzles in Guardian Moon so downloaded 1.03 and all the rest I had done in 1.02... (Don't really feel like doing it all again so soon and hope to do it with out too many tips, hints etc lol)
Have totally enjoyed this game its better than all the other hidden object games I normally play in about 3 hours... This was worth it... Hope Enkord does a sequel to this one...
Oh and yeah still stuck on lite orb puzzle in Guardian Moon... Close to giving up... Tried all hints tips I have gathered and still can't work it... Maybe someone needs to hold my hand... lol... j/king (I must be thick as two planks or some such saying) Darn it so close but so far away... Will try again tomorrow...
Happy Gaming Everyone...
Well I finally beat the game, but I didn't like my ending so I will have to do it again sometime. But I do have a question about the guardian moon... everyone keeps saying there are a few puzzles but it only ever gave me one puzzle. I searched high and low, what did I miss?
I have no clue where to find the last Thurisaz crystal at the Comet Crash Site. It's been DAYS!!! and no luck. Can you help me?!
There is a post by Su a few above entitled "Totem Tribe V1.03" with a note by Jay
Never mind I have finally got the light orb puzzle in Guardian moon... Please don't ask me how as it was just luck on my side (or rather not being sober lol)... Now for the final battle... Wish me luck... (No maybe not lol)
Happy gaming everyone...
hye..i'm at the Monkey Island and there's rounded crystal at the island but what is it for?..how can i use it?nothing happened when i click on it..and how can i get to the island on the right to retrieve the gems at the centre of it?..can anyone help me plz?
you come back for that globe later once you get the sphere of clarity. There are a few other islands that have the same thing and when you click on them, wait a second, and it will react with the sphere of clarity
Can anyone please tell me how to light all 7 small fires on beetle island? I've gotten this far, but this one is driving me nuts. I tried to skim through here to see if this had been answered, but didn't have time to read all 22 pages.
Thanks in advance.
tyvm ls and ness. that was the trick. its so obvious to me now lol all of you guys are just so great at helping, so ty to you all
Jay thanx for the offer, but have managed with help of my son to locate 1 blue gem on Lonely Iceburg using the gem cheat, only can't find it as there is still too much black around, so when son comes back tomorrow will ask him to do the fog cheat :-) Oh and on quest 2 came up level 12- gems?? and on quest 17 said Gem- pyramida, did go back to those Islands, but all clear which is what I thought as it doesn't colour of gems etc..
I've finished comet crash site, but i don't know how to get to guardian moon :s... how do i do that???
[Edit: You need to complete 100% of the Rainbow Road by collecting all the gems from all the islands. -Jay]
im stuck at penguin island because I dont understand how to use the idol. do they really want me to look through the whole island by using the pulse or did i oversee a clue. Do they mean that you will see the totem no matter how far it is? sorry I didnt get that. i dont see any. sb patient enough to answer. would be great.
Hi, I can't seem to find to path on the loney iceburg. Can someone please post a screen shot? I want to get to all outlaying areas.
I'm trying to find the missing gems in each island, but there are two of them that won¡t open, the games just gets stuck when i try to open them :S how can i fix this?
Has anyone found or posted a screen shot of the path on guardian moon? I keep seeing that it's an S shape, but I have tried starting everywhere, and can't even get started.
If someone could even give me a starting point, I would really appreciate it.
on frozen vale island ( with the penguins ) what is the unit that is needed for the chest?
I so much appreciate you taking the time to revise the info on the missing gem count. Please let me explain myself a wee bit better.
The numbered instructions in the aqua box say data file. The next bullet says quest file. That information could be about the next step rather than the two instructions being related. You see what I mean? Including the sample quest file name in the aqua box would clarify things to the nth.
One more revision would save those of us who are just PC-savvy enough to be dangerous. If you agree, thanks so much!
[Edit: Fixed. Thanks for pointing that out. :) -Jay]
layout of lonely iceburg
guardian map min-view
there isnt a specify unit requirement in the game
there are only 2 ways to open a chest
an unit needed to be near it
collect enought items or fruits to unlock it
I'm guessing you talking about the chests that wont open? which island is that ?
Wow finally finished the game, last level was a toughie but got there...
Stats said I had been playing (on/off of course) total 27hrs 18min...
Game Rank 65%, World Explored 79%, Gems 440/440, quest 125/125, bldgs 243 and population 1154... And the ending wasn't one of the good ones :( (I wonder how they work out the rank lol)
Happy gaming everyone and good luck...
yes, it says to bring the unit to the chest to unlock it. my question is, what is the unit?
Take your searchers to the chest... A unit means people 2 or more...
"Bring the unit to the chest" means a scout, an army member, Aruku or Guro, depending on the level. It's whoever you can command to move to a location by placing one of your flags (eye or battle).
What version of the game do you have.. First screen with Play Option Exit... just below exit it will tell you...
lol ty for the info e1. thats where my last 3 shells were!!!!
I have 1.03. I simply can't find the entrance point. I am moving that stupid eye a tiny bit at a time, and she just won't enter the fog anywhere. I feel so stupid. :/
Thanks for the map, though, Xasher. :)
I finished mine too! I had the same ending and now I'm trying to redo in order to try for the other 2. I didn't copy all the info down but my specs were:
Worlds Explored: 77%
Time: 33H 29M
I think my Game Rank might have been around 65 but not sure
My guess is they take certain stats and have some sort of equation.
I'm so glad this game is interesting enough to try for the other endings. I would be cool if they have add-ons or the ability to create your own additions to this (like they had with Zelda and a few other games-that might be interesting for this and the other tribe-like games).
is there a list of what chemicals are needed for each combo on the lonely iceberg?
[Edit: Check the FAQ at the top of this page. -Pam]
do u guys know where can i get the 3rd shaman mask?..
Hi kikilala: The next Shaman Mask (actually here's the treasure chest pic)
http://images.jayisgames.com/totem-tribe/tt-treasure-items-with-locations.jpg Note:The relic of prosperity is on Guardian Moon
ok so i took the advice of a previous poster and rechecked the locations of the vibrating stones on dream shores. I Still cant find the missing stone. I found 8
Here is the ss of the stones i found
So i'm wondering are there 8 or 9 rocks?
there are 9 stone altogether
v stone layout
Thank you so much xasher! I feel so silly i never even looked there
*big sigh of relief* Thanks again :)
Hi I noticed you had a screenshot here of all the relics you could get. But one was missing. I've obtained it, so I thought you might want to update the pic? for all those people curious what the last relic looks like ( and note that the tear of heaven is glowing now too cause its purified)
Hope i posted this the right way. Nice walkthrough by the way !
PS got all the gems without colouring :D ( but did check the data files to know which islands i still needed to search)
Keep up the good work here :)
No, i'm talking about two islands that wont open... maybe is my pc ... it's a bit old... :(
Ness--Lost Temple. Not a genius, just happened to click that combo and voila! my fire logo at the bottom showed a three. Tried doing it with the other power, but got bored and gave up. My guess is it will be helpful in the comet. I've put off going in until I find out if there are more things to do on Guardian Moon than cleansing the tear and getting the last relic. The posts I read about spending hours defeating the aliens has me hesitant to enter until I'm sure I've done everything.
I read a post somewhere that there are 3 endings based on a)finishing all levels including Guardian Moon and b)letting your people get eaten by the squids' mouths and something else, but I forget because I wasn't anywhere near the comet then. What I do remember is that sacrificing your people to the mouths is bad.
So, I believe that is what determines your ending, not how many buildings, etc...I could be wrong.
Those that didn't get happy ever after, did you let your squid eat your people?
I'm getting ready to go in--wish me luck.
I'm at 99% for rainbow road. I have version 1 so its probably the missing gem on volcano island although I tried the fix as described on this forum by MF. I bought the game from Gamehouse and they aren't offering v2 so I would have to pay and download again. If I bought the v2 game from you would I have to start all over again?
Thanks, Willowtree. :)
If you download the game from us, you will NOT have to start all over again if you backup your saved game data files of your current game before you uninstall the old one, then install the new one.
Here are the steps you'll need to do:
Backup your data files to a safe location. Make sure you get all quest-xxxx-nn.dat files, as well as your profiles.dat file. The location of these files depends on where you purchased the game from, and whether you're running XP or Vista. Refer to the walkthrough guide section under "Saved game data" for a rough idea where to find them.
Uninstall the old game.
Install the new one.
Start the game, create a new profile, then quit out of the game. This step will create the "Enkord\Totem Tribe" directory where your saved game files will need to be restored to. IMPORTANT: Note where this directory is for the next step.
Copy your saved game files (quest-xxxx-nn.dat files plus profiles.dat) from step #1, to the "Enkord\Totem Tribe" directory you found in step #4.
You should be able to start the game and pick up where you left off.
I hope that works for you without issue. :)
Thanks Jay. I just thought I would go back one last time and look on volcano and within a minute a spotted another gem so I have found 21 (been keeping score on each island)however I'm still at 99% - pooh!!!!!! I did get confused (lost count)on scorched so may still be one there, will go look and will download again from you if all else fails.
Thanks very much
i forget what island i went back to, but i have to listen to the rocks to open the chest. any clues??
ss i figured it out
hey Jay --
I love your site, and I always think your reviews are spot on! I think I read all the comments here, and I don't think anyone has pointed out that what you say in the review that you can't move the map once you've selected a building, but actually, you can -- if you move the building you want to build to the edge of the screen and then click as if you were placing it, the map shifts. Sorry if someone's already suggested that.
