FAQ’s about game play V. Contacts and helpful websites Part 1 – The Introduction Welcome aboard the Queen of the Galaxy, Starship Titanic . . . The ship that cannot possibly go wrong… HAH! If you ask Marsinta the deskbot, not that she would be willing to talk to you or anything. You have been chosen by the 5-bot crew of Starship Titanic or mostly the Doorbot Fentable to repair the ship. You learn more as you play but I am going to get to the intro. This guide is to help you complete the game successfully. I have tried to make this as error free as possible. I would like to mention that every thing in section 3 is going to tell you what happens at the end of the game. I hope to make walkthrough’s and FAQ’s for some other games also if you like this one. Also, I have placed "Save Game" blocks inbetween each section. I suggest this because incase you were to lose power to your computer or it crashed you wouldn't need to go back very far from where you left off. Part 2 – FAQ’s about the background of the Game Q: Is Starship Titanic a complete text adventure? A: No, it is a visual adventure with text interface. With the text interface you can interact with the other characters in the game. It is possible to complete the game with typing up only a few sentences. But only if you use a walkthrough like this. Part of the game is asking the write questions. Q: Does Starship Titanic only work on Windows 95? A: I know that it works on Windows 98 and XP, so it should work on your version of Windows. If you have a Mac you need to get the Macintosh version of the game from the Mac website. Q: Where can I find more information about Starship Titanic? A: The official website http://www.starshiptitanic.com does have information about the game and Tech Support, they would probably be most helpful. The Digital village website http://www.tdv.com contains a tribute to it's founder and seems to have not been updated in quite some time. The Simon & Schuster Interactive who distributes the game has nothing that I could find on their site http://www.simonsays.com. You could also try http://www.cheatcodes.com http://www.ask.com or http://www.google.com or another search engine. Q: Will reading the book ruin the game for me? A: No, the book doesn’t give away the puzzles in the game, but it makes what happened to the ship a lot easier to understand. Q: Why do I need 3D glasses? A: There is a point in the game when you will need these. But I was able to do without them, so if you don’t have any you shouldn’t worry. Part 3 – Walkthrough -Getting Started: You will start in your house. You don’t necessarily need to turn the TV on but you can if you want. The next thing you want to do is turn around and look at the computer. Walk to the computer and sit down. There should be 3 CD’s sitting on the desk. Open the CD drawer on the computer and put the disk that says Titanic on it in. Now, I hope your house was insured. -Checking In: As soon as you get of the service elevator go immediately to the right and “press the button” on the post. After you watch the semi-entertaining video you can walk over to the desk and ring the bell. The bell will turn into Marsinta the deskbot. She will ask you a few questions about your room. But you will receive a Super Galactic Traveler Class room. Trust me it’s nothing fancy. -Working the SGT room and 2nd Class upgrade: After you find your assigned room, which might not have been too easy. You hear the voice tell you that you could have already one an upgrade. Don’t worry you did. Open the personal maintenance hub then open the Executive workspace table. You can then open the drawers underneath if you want to. Open the fully recumbent relaxation device and then deploy it. Open the TV and walk to the bed. Turn to the right channel. You don’t need to remember the number. Just go to the Succ-U-Bus in the lobby and get your magazine. Take it to Marsinta and get your upgrade. -Fixing the Main Succ-U-Bus: Go to the Parrot Lobby at the top of the well. It’s across from the Embarkation Lobby. Go to the cage and take the parrot and put him into your personal luggage. And walk out of the room. He will get out but you will have a feather. Walk through the Embarkation Lobby to the service elevator and go to the bilge room (middle button) and walk to the big Succ-U-Bus in the middle. Stick the feather in the tray and press Send. He will sneeze out Brobostigon. Magnify him and take Titania’s Olfactory Center and the Blue Fuse. TIP: I waited until the end of the game to put all of Titania’s parts in. That way I could keep track of what I still had to find. -Disarming the Bomb: Hint: DO NOT TOUCH THE BOMB AND YOU WANT HAVE TO DISARM IT. But if you accidentally turned it on you can A.) Solve the puzzle or B.) Type nobody likes a Smarta** you’ll actually have to type it in the game but I am going to censor this. -Elevator 4 – What’s the deal?: The deal is somebody or something took the Liftbots head. Take elevator 1or 3 to the bottom of the well (Floor 39). Walk to the middle of the lobby and look towards the floor. You should see a head on the floor that looks like an oversized marble with a face. Pick it up and get back on the elevator and go to the Top of the Well and go to elevator number 4. Take out the current head, which you will find to be Titania’s eye. And place the head in. TIP: Elevators 1 and 3 cover the whole ship but elevators 2 and 4 only cover 1st and 2nd class. -Hacking into the Ship creator’s e-mail accounts: Just know that this is not necessary you can skip to the next section. Hacking into the e-mail just gives you more background information. To start with go to the fuse box and turn the red switch to the side and take the red fuse. Go to the Creator’s room where the 3 busts are. Flip the lever on the wall. Now you can see the message behind the creator’s head. Go back to the e-mail screen in Titania’s room and type in the user name and e-mail. The names are Leovinus, Scralinotis and Brobostigon. The passwords are THIS, THAT and OTHER. -Getting the parrot his pistachios: Go back to the parrot lobby and grab the parrot and drop him in your bag. Quickly walk to the Succ-U-Bus and drop the parrot in the tray. He will then be put into a capsule. Drop your room number in and press send. Make sure it’s your 2nd class room. Press Send. Then head down to your room and go to the Succ-U-Bus in the middle of the room and press Receive the capsule will pop out. Click on it, the parrot will fly away but he is stuck in your room. Walk over to the bowl of pistachios and click on it. The parrot will come and eat the nuts. He will fly away. But wait, is that Titania’s ear, it is! Take the ear and drop it in your luggage, you may have to turn the dial in the middle. A new bowl will pop up and fill with nuts. -SAVE YOUR GAME NOW! -Getting your 1st class Stateroom: Before you go and ask Marsinta for your upgrade it is advised that you go to the sculpture room and find the sculpture that looks like Marsinta. Mess with the sliders on it. They will move and go back to their original positions. Then go to the Embarkation Lobby and ask Marsinta for an upgrade. If you found the right sculpture Marsinta should be in a very good mood and give you your upgrade. All you have to ask is “May I please have an upgrade?” -The Upside down Chevron on Channel 4. Go to your 1st class stateroom and walk to the TV and turn it on to channel 4. The Chevron is upside down so if you’re going to make your own remember it’s upside down. Although every time I have played it the room was Floor 7, Elevator 2, Room 3. But why do I need to go to this room? That is Titania’s eye looking at the ceiling. Go to that room and look towards the lights in the middle. Turn them on and off. You may notice a bulb not working, I didn’t but the eye was still there. Call the Bellbot Krage. Tell him to “Fix the Broken Light”. He will do so and give you the eye. -Making of the Titanic Titillator: Jump in the Pellerator and go to the bar. Look at the TV and notice the recipe but don’t copy it down the next few steps will get it for you. Walk to the bar and ring the bell. The Barbot will come over and give you a glass. Take the glass and leave. Go back to the top of the well. -Crushed Television: Go to the Parrot Lobby and call Krage the Bellbot. When he gets there tell him “Throw the Television Down the Well.” You might have to do it more than once. He will happily comply. Quickly go to elevator 1 or 3 and go to the bottom of the well and pick up the TV. You have to go quickly or it will disappear. -Pureed Starlings: Head to Titania’s room and go to the fuse box and plug in the blue fuse and turn the knob, then turn the yellow knob and take the yellow fuse. Go back to the Pellerator. Go to the Promenade Deck. And go to the fan and turn it on and turn the speed up to fast. You will see the Starlings get pureed. Go to the Top of the Well and get on elevator 1 or 3 and head to any SGT floor (Floors 28- 38). Go to the 3rd class restaurant (The gold doors in front of you when you get of the elevator) and flip the switch and get a chicken. Place it under the left pipe and it will be covered in pureed Starlings. While the chicken is being covered hold the glass under it. You’re glass should fill up with the Starlings if it doesn’t try it again. Stick the glass in your bag. -Lemon: Go back to the Parrot Lobby and find the perch on the bags take it. Go the Pellerator and head back to the Promenade deck. Go to the spaceship looking thing and Move the perch over the purple button on the top 3 times you should hear 3 beeps. The Doors will open and you can take the hammer. Go back to the Top of the well and take Elevators 1 or 3 to a SGT class lobby. Go to the room at the end of the lobby and you Will notice a stick in a glass case. Move closer to it and move the hammer across the glass And hopefully the glass will break and you can get the stick. Head back up to the top of The well and take the gondola to the Arboretum and walk to the gate and you’ll see all the Lemons hanging in the tree. Using the long stick move it around in the trees a lemon will Fall out. Take it and get on the Pellerator and head to the bar. Get out and go to the Barbot. Give him the Crushed Television he will put it into his head. Give him the lemon He will do the same with it. Give him the Pureed Starlings. He will ask what it is so Tell him it is “Pureed Starlings”. After he pours in the starlings tell him “Get the Vodka” He will and he will have a rather lengthy outburst. When he is done say “Get the Vision Center”. -SAVE YOUR GAME -Leave the Light alone; there is no reason to touch it…: Go to the Parrot lobby. Go towards the broken light next to the Succ-U-Bus, you’ll notice that the parrot starts yelling about not touching the light. That obviously means there is something there. Go out to the Top of the well and ride the gondola down to the arboretum and go to the left. You will notice that there is something on the right that looks like a pellerator. Go over to it and open it you will see a hose. Take the hose off the wall. Go back to the Parrot Lobby. Place the hose on the light. The hose should connect to it. You’ll notice in your Personal Luggage that there is a block with the image of the end of a hose. Take that end and stick it in the Succ- U-Bus. Push Send. The Succ-U-Bus will blow air into the bottom of the light and out will pop Titania’s nose. Take it. You can then put the hose back into your bag. While you’re still in the Parrot Lobby go to the Chevron List and save the Chevron. -Making Music: Go to the Pellerator from the Parrot Lobby and push the button to go to the music room. If you’ve been to the first class restaurant yet you might have noticed the bad music. Time to fix it. So here are the settings: Upper Left: You can’t change it it’s already correct. Upper Right: Vertical slider third from bottom, horizontal slider second from right, upper knob top to the right lower knob top to the right. Lower Left: Vertical slider at the bottom, horizontal slider furthest left, upper knob top to left, lower knob top to left. Lower Right: Vertical slider second from the bottom, horizontal slider furthest right, upper knob top to the left, lower knob top to the right. Make sure all the green lights are on and press the red button. If you did it right it will end with a “ding” from the piano. It will last roughly 1:40. Go to the phonograph behind you and take the speaker, the speaker is Titania’s ear. Go down towards the phonograph and press the circle button (record). Walk back over to the conductor’s stand and press the red button. When the song is done go back to the phonograph and press the square button twice (stop/eject). Take the cylinder and get back onto the pellerator and head to the first class restraunt. Go in and walk to Maitre d’ bot. And pick up his arm and poke him in the center of his buttocks. He will say things like “You are poking my Achilles buttock.” But if he mentions his heel you are to low. After you “fight” him he will let you sit at the table with Scralinotis. Take Maitre d’ Bot’s other arm, the napkin and the green fuse. Head out the First Class Restaurant lobby and walk over to the podium and unlock it with the arm holding the key. Take the cylinder out of the slot and sit it aside, then put the one you recorded into it. Press play, you can close and lock the podium if you want. Walk back into the room and go over to Maitre d’ Bot and his arms will release the key and the Auditory Center. -SAVE YOUR GAME -Getting the Parrot his hot chicken: Go to any SGT class floor (Floors 28-38) and go to the restaurant and flip the switch for the chicken. Remember the napkin you took, wipe the chicken off in your bag with it. Do this by moving the napkin across the chicken a few times and then let go of it over the chicken. Take the chicken and put it under the left pipe (Starling Puree) and do that until the chicken is covered in starling puree. Put your saved chevron from the Parrot Lobby into the Succ-U-Bus then put the chicken in. If you don’t cover the chicken in Starling Puree the Succ-U-Bus will eat it. Press Send and quickly go up to the Parrot Lobby and go over to the Succ-U-Bus and push receive. Take the chicken and drop it in your bag. Wipe it off with the Napkin like you did before to get the Starling off. Go over to the parrot cage and hold the chicken off to the left of the cage. Wait until he is all the way off the perch and grab it (it being the perch). The perch will be Titania’s central intelligence core. If you want you can put the perch from earlier into the cage. -Changing the Weather: Go down to Titania’s room and go to the fuse box and plug in the green fuse. Turn the knob. Go back up to the Arboretum and approach the now working arboretum and change the setting to fall. You will see another part of Titania hanging down. Use the long stick to knock it free and take it. Change the season to winter. Go over to the side with the thing you got the hose from. Turn around and go towards the Rowbot. Click on his chest. It will move and you will see to levers. You need to put both of them down at the same time to stop his singing. Use Maitre d’ Bots arms to do so. Hook one on the left lever and the other on the right. These have to be empty to work if they aren’t, see the “Making Music” section. Once he stops singing take his mouth, which is really Titania’s. Go back to the Arboretum and change the season to spring. Get on the gondola and head back to Titania’s room. -Putting Titania’s parts back into her: You now should have all 11 parts of Titania. Two eyes, two ears, nose, mouth, central intelligence core, and four centers. Titania’s center should be arranged like this: Yellow Red Blue Green That is the way they should be when your looking at them they DO NOT need to be reversed. -Going Home: Enter the bridge, and go to the hanging helmet. Put the photo of your home into the slot. Push Tab to switch to the photo of your home. Pick 3 stars that are directly over your house and fairly close. Take the first star and click on it. There should be a red cross around it. Press Set destination and push tab again you should see a 3D visual with the star you picked in a yellow diamond using your mouse get as close as you can to the star and press “L” to lock the destination if you did that on the wrong star press “D” to unlock it. Do this with the other 2 stars and you should get a triangle once you do go up to the Wheel and press go. You should get to go back to Earth. Part 4 – FAQ’s about game play: Q: How do I solve all the puzzles in the game? A: Every puzzle has its own hints. You can usually summon Krage the Bellbot and interrogate him to give you an answer. You can also ask Marsinta the Deskbot or the Barbot. Q: How do I find my room? A: Go to your saved chevrons and click on each one until you find the one that says “Assigned Room, Class #, Elevator #, Floor #, Room #. SGT class is probably the toughest to find the room. Q: What do the little dials on the PET stand for? A: The bottom dial is the robot’s current usefulness to you. The middle dial is the robot’s cellpoint settings and the top dial is the robot’s attitude towards you. Q: Do the sculptures serve any useful purpose? A: Yes they control each robots setting. Each sculpture corresponds to a robot. The parrot will give you helpful hints. Q: Can I make the parrot stop talking? A: No, I know that it will get very annoying but the parrot will give you helpful hints throughout the game. Q: Where is Titania (Room)? A: Titania’s room is located above the top of the well. To get there, take the stairs near the Top of the well on the side closest to the embarkation lobby. Turn around and you will see a small. Go through the door and up to Titania. Q:I had a long stick earlier, and now its gone! What happened to it? A: This appears to be a bug in the game. I didn’t have that problem myself. The long stick disappears for some people and then you can’t get another one. Contact Simon & Schuster with your problem. I can’t help you, sorry! Part 5 – Contacts and helpful websites.
