Logbook Uru: The Path of the Shell

On this page, I keep a logbook of my explorations of Uru: The Path of the Shell. It is an almost verbatim copy of the notes that I made, so don't expect it to be grammatically correct or understandable. It is not a walk through, but I guess it can be understood by someone that played the game. Before I started this log, I already had walked around the game a little, when trying to install it, and tried to discover why it kept on crashing on one of my computers. Remarks that I added latter are in italics. For hints I looked at the UHS Uru hints page.

Session 1: Evening of September 6, 2007

21:18 Started after reinstall. 21:23 At the start. Let's see how quick I can do it. 21:27 Quit, because mouse responds very slow. Wrong graphics settings I guess. 21:50 Continued. Annabel reminded me about the cloth near the start. 21:56 Short break. 21:59 Continued. 22:21 Open door in the tree. 22:22 Took linking book to Relto and activated it. I wonder what new things there will be. 22:30 Jumped to book on the right, which appears to be Path of the Shell. There is some map being displayed. 22:33 Found a linking book on the left, and jumped there. 22:36 Found some "plants" and a map. 22:39 Walked the other way. There is some kind of rails in a wider room. I turn right. 22:40 Found some kind of station. 22:42 Went up the ladder. Pushed a button. Nothing happened. 22:43 Also tried handle on the train. Nothing works. I guess there is no power. 22:45 Downstairs, continued search. 22:49 Found the station on the other side of the tracks. There are stairs going up. 22:57 Jumped back to Relto after I fell in some pit. From there went back into Path of the Shell. 22:59 Jumped with second book I found. A very small age. Many recognizable symbols. A note saying 2:18. 23:02 Used the linking book. 23:04 Jumped in the water and did some swimming. I think it was rather stupid to do this. 23:07 Back to Relto. 23:08 Jumped there again. 23:09 Found some other island. 23:13 I jumped in the water, just to discover that the current is too strong. 23:15 Back to Relto. 23:18 Jumped in again. 23:23 Failed again. Now I was pulled in the other direction. Back to Relto. In again. 23:26 I came very close this time. Back to Relto and back in. 23:28 Found some sign on the wall and pressed it. It light up. Thats all. 23:30 Missed the islang again. The sign is a linking symbol. Great. 23:32 Again missed the island. 23:33 Jumped into the start of the Path of the Shell. 23:34 Found a shirt. 23:36 Went up the stairs. Found a button. 23:37 Inside some room. A note stauing 1:4. 23:38 Some kind of clock here. 23:39 Found some note saying 1:89. 23:43 Read the notes. 23:53 Went upstaris, and found something turning up against the wall. 23:56 I pushed the ball up. It stayed there. Funny. 0:02 Went down stair and jumped to water world. 0:05 I jumped in the water again from the first rock. Maybe you have to jump from the second rock. Jumped back here through Relto. 0:08 It worked! 0:09 Found a drawing again. 0:12 Found a note saying 3:72. And I fell off the island. Seems this is everything. Quit.

Session 2: Afternoon of September 8, 2007

16:57 Started 17:00 Jumped to Path of the Shell. 17:01 Jumped tp train world. Searched between plants. 17:07 Walked to station. 17:10 Looked below the train and climbed ladder. 17:13 Train stared moving. I pushed central handle up, pushed button and pulled left lever. 17:14 Arrived. Went on small train and pulled handle. 17:16 There is a button here. Let's look around. 17:17 Found an exit on the other side leading to a platform. 17:19 There used to be a bridge her, but it is broken. I rather not jump into the water. Decided to go back, see if there if another way out. 17:21 Found a symbol. That is nice. 17:22 Took the small train back. 17:25 Looked a little at the big train and went up again. 17:26 I pushed the button, but nothing happened. 17:28 It is impossible to go any further. 17:30 Went down with little train. 17:34 Moved the big train back. 17:36 Drove forward again with the train. The left handle does not seem to work. 17:39 I tried the left one again. Let's go downstairs. 17:47 Ran back to where the train was. Nothing special to see there. 17:52 Back on the train. Let's see what happens if I jump to upstairs while the train is still downstairs. Jumped to Relto. 17:53 Jumped back with symbol. 17:55 Found a stair going down. But lets first test button. 17:56 Yes, it brings the small train up. 17:59 Found some gate under the train which is closed. 18:02 There seems to be no other exit. Let's bring the train back and "jump" to upstairs again. 18:05 Jumped back. 18:08 Now it was open. I went downstairs. 18:11 The other side looks the same. I am up out in the air. 18:12 Crossed the bridge inside the "main" building. Let's look around. 18:13 Climbed stair on the right. 18:14 The grating of the most right water outlet is broken. Let's to in. 18:15 It is blocked at the end. 18:16 Back in "main" room. 18:17 I found a switch and switched it on. The wheels started turning. Let's go outside. 18:18 The big windmill is turning. 18:24 I looked around a little and also went into the water tube. Then back up the stairs into what looks like a control room. 18:29 Looked around. No buttons here, it seems. 18:30 Outside, looked around. 18:31 Quit.

Session 3: Evening of September 8, 2007

22:13 Started 22:15 Jumped to symbol in "train" world. 22:20 Found a switch near the ladder going down and switched it on. There is some sound. Interesting. Let's go further. 22:23 Also switched on the other switch near the ladder. 22:26 Found another symbol in the "main" room. 22:27 Everything still looks the same in the control room. 22:30 Found some stair going down the rotating things. Maybe you can only go in when its not turning. Let's try. 22:33 I switched the windmill off, but they are still turning. 22:40 Switched on the windmill again. 22:44 I called the small train. 22:47 Moved train backwards. 22:50 Trued something with left handle, but it did not work. Moved train forward again. 22:51 Jumped to Relto. 22:52 Jumped in with symbol. 23:04 After walking around everywhere, I managed to sit down on the chair in the control room. 23:06 It is indeed the control pannel. 23:08 I stopped one of the wheels, the one connected to the broeken outlet. Let see if we can get in. 23:10 Yes it is open, but I cannot get in. 23:13 Switched red circle off, in control room. 23:15 That did the job. 23:16 Found a note saying 4:10. 23:18 Looks like you cannot get further. But there is another symbol there. 23:19 Looks like there is some path overhead. 23:20 Found some switch. Let's activate it. 23:22 Found some complicated device. All four pillars have the same kind of device. Only two are switched on. 23:26 Found button to turn platform up. But it goed down immediately again. 23:41 I noticed that when I turn the switch, the two platforms with the light on turn around, thus preventing the platform from going up. 23:45 I switched them of in control room. 23:48 I am upstairs. The platform stays up. 23:50 Founa back-pack. 23:51 I went down on the other side. There are several things here. A linking cloth. A linking book to some other place around here it seems. A button, which does not work. I press the symbol. 23:56 Jumped with book. There is a book for jumping back. Great. 23:58 Went up the ladder. Some sign saying 3:110. 0:00 Not much too see here. 0:02 Jumped back. 0:03 Tried linking cloth. Mysterious room. Sing with 5:18 on the wall. 0:09 Back in Relo. Jumped to water world. 0:11 Jumped back to Relto. 0:14 Saw the sign 3:72. 0:16 Annabel pointed me at a door on the little island. 0:20 Jumped of the little island and swam towards even smaller island, but missed it. 0:21 Returned through Relto. 0:27 Failed again. Back to Relto. Jumped into Path of the Shell. 0:41 Discovered the switch in the spiral room. I quit.

Session 4: Afternoon of September 9, 2007

16:18 Took the blue book in Relto. 16:25 Jumped to the start of the "train" world. 16:28 Ran to train, climbed on train. Took the little train up. Activated handle, and walked backwards to let the small train go down again. (Got that from the hints). 16:34 Walked to control room. 16:37 I tried to open all the gates to the ladders, but with the bottom left one, I cannot empty the water. Let's go outside and look inside the onse that are empty now. 16:41 Did not find anything in top righ one. 16:43 Found a piece of paper with five starts. 16:46 Tried to let the water go away again. But it did not work. 16:49 I could not go in the one filled with water. 16:50 (Break)

16:56 (Continued) At the second room, you cannot go further. I do not know, what I should do next. Lets go back to the control room and activate all the wheels. 16:58 I switched off the power and the platform came down. Lets go further. 17:05 Looked around a little, but could not find anything. Back to control room. 17:13 I switched on all yellow buttons. Let's go back to other room. 17:24 I have no idea what I should do here. (Break)

17:35 (Continued) 17:37 Found some note saying 4:52 outside near the most "left" water outlet. 17:42 Activated cloth in "windmill" room. Jumped to Relto. 17:44 Jumped to water world. 17:48 Found linking book to small age. Let's go there. 17:53 Jumped back. 17:56 I jumped in the water and found a way to get out of it again. 18:15 After a lot of swimming, jumped back to Relto. (Break).

18:38 (Continued) Jumped to Path of the Shell. 18:41 The drawing that is displayed rotates with your position such that it always looks the same to you. 18:47 Went up stair. 18:52 Quit.

Session 5: Evening of September 10, 2007

20:35 Started. 20:39 Jumped to small world. 20:43 Jumped to water world. 20:55 Jumped to Relto. 20:56 Jumped to Path of the Shell. 20:57 Jumped to Relto. 20:58 Jumped to "train" world. 20:59 Switched yellow buttons off. 21:07 Activated last cloth. 21:15 Switched yellow buttons on again. Back to room with pillars. 21:22 I made all levers up and one of the buttons became yellow. I can not move the levers anymore. 21:23 Okay let's activate all. Looks like they are all on now. 21:24 One is not on. Maybe it is too high. Let's switch of the electricity and see if we can fix it. 21:25 Yes, the flames go off. 21:27 Now only one is on. Very strange. 21:30 I set all of them at 50, and only one lit up. Now all of them are on. 21:32 Jumped to Relto. 21:33 Jumped back with cloth. (Break)

21:50 (Continued) In the last room. The light on the button is on. 21:51 The machine opened. 21:52 I pulled the lever. It is down again. And the light on the button is off. What is this? 21:55 The flames are off too. 21:59 Jumped with book. 22:00 Jumped back to Relto. Quit.

Session 6: Evening of September 11, 2007

19:45 Started 19:47 Jumped to "train" world. 19:58 Switched burners on and jumped to Relto. 20:00 (Break)

21:00 Jumped with cloth. 21:05 Activated machine. Got the thing out and dumped all of them. Then jumped with stone. Nothing to see there. I guess it was wrong. Jumped to Relto. 21:07 Jumped with cloth. 21:11 Back to Relto. 21:12 Jumped to start of the "train" world. 21:20 Switched flames on. Maybe they are too low. 21:25 I tried all on 70 and it worked. Lets try 100. 21:28 It worked. Some other wheel on the right also turned. 21:29 Jumped to Relto. 21:30 Jumped with cloth. 21:31 Strange, but the button is not activated. Maybe it is too hot. Nice. 21:35 Jumped to Relto. 21:36 Jumped to start. 21:43 In control room. I switched all the wheels on. Jumped to Relto. 21:45 Jumped with cloth. The light is on. So my reasoning is correct. But what should I do? 21:50 Pushed the blue buttons. 21:52 Pushed the button. 21:53 Then pushed on the thing, and it is gone again. Let's try another one. 21:54 I jumped to the small room. Jumped back. 21:55 Still three left. 21:56 It fell after some time. I guess, I immediately have to press the book. 21:57 I did, but it is still empty. Jumped back. 21:59 Still two left. 22:00 Okay I succeeded. Now I know how to do it. It gave some reaction, some yellow smoke, but that is all. I guess, I need to do this five times. 22:02 Let's do one more. 22:03 Try last. 22:04 Button does not work. Tried handle. No response. 22:05 Maybe this was it. Jumped to small room again. 22:07 Nothing there. Jumped back to last room. 22:08 Blue button seems to work. 22:09 But after I pushed it, nothing happened. Lets jump with stone. 22:11 Jumped to Relto. Jumped to Path of the Shell. On the balcony there is a note saying 1:38. 22:17 Roled ball up and left it there. 22:18 Jumped to water world. 22:24 I looked around the towere. Jumped to Relto. 22:27 There is some new island here with a spiral form. Is that the reward? 22:28 Quit.

Under the assumption that I had finished the "train" world/age, I decided to have a look at the hints. And I discovered that settings for the burners are on the Bahro cave. I also inferred from the hints that I saw, that I have to bring one of the things there. I do not know if that is true. I also read in the notes that it takes 15 minutes for the burnes to make the things. So, it seems I have been drawing some incorrect conclusions.

Session 7: Evening of September 12, 2007

21:00 Started. 21:02 Jumped with cloth. 21:03 Jumped to Bahro. Found the numbers: 20, 30, and 40. 21:12 Jumped to Relto. 21:13 Jumped to start of "train" world. 21:19 In control room. Switched off the top left wheel. 21:23 Set the settings on the first burner. 21:26 Switched it on. It seems I have to wait 15 minutes now. 21:28 Back in control room. Switched wheel on again. 21:29 Jumped to Relto. 21:30 Jumped with cloth. 21:34 I had not closed the machine. I closed it. (Went away to do some other things.) 21:45 The light is on now. 21:46 Jumped with first thing to small world. 21:47 It gave a bright light on the water when it dropped. I guess the settings are correct. 21:48 I jumped back. 21:50 I jumped to Bahro with scond. But when I arrived there, it was gone. Something went wrong it seems. 21:51 Jumped to Relto. 21:52 Jumped back. 21:53 Let's try again. 21:54 This time it worked. I dropped it in the hole. Let's try again. 21:55 Back to Relto. 21:56 In again. 21:58 Again same effect. 22:01 Also threw in the last. Back to Relto. 22:03 Jumped to Path of the Shell. 22:05 Jumped to small world. 22:08 I decided to look at the hints. 22:17 It seems you can only finish the "train" age if you have finished the other. 22:24 Looked at the "blue" lights on thing in the middle of the water (as was suggested in the hints). I do not recognize it. 22:29 I studied it from the point near the jumping book, but I do not recognize anything. 22:30 Jumped. 22:34 Jumped to Relto. 22:35 To Path of the Shell. 22:36 Quit.

Later, I read in the hints that the blue lights are controlled by living things. The device acts as a radar for living things. Then I remembered that Annabel had asked me what you could do with the crabs on the island. I had already noted before that they would walk away, if you walk near them.

Session 8: Evening of September 13, 2007

18:32 Started. 18:34 Jumped to small world. 18:41 There are 18 bolts on each window. Last windowon the left has lines at 2, 4, 9, 10, 15 and 17. 18:43 Jumped to water world. 18:45 I pushed one crab off the island. Does that spell disaster. 18:49 It looks like you cannot move them to a different location, only kick them off the island. I guess they come back after some time. 18:54 It seems that there are 26 positions. One large one at the bottom, there where the water falls in. 18:55 Jumped in the water. Looks like there is no light there. I guess that the symbols on the wall of the small world refer to numbers. D'ni number system is 5 based. 18:58 Jumped to Relto. (Break)

19:45 I found some papers (from my notes) with some information. I do not know where I got it from. I guess I have to play Uru again. Lets note the symbols used. 19:47 Jumped to small world and noted them down. 19:52 Let's see if I can find it. I somehow remember that it was not very difficult to find. 19:53 Jumped to Relto. 19:55 Jumped to purple world. 19:58 Jumped to the room inside D'ni with all the symbols 20:00 (Break)

20:57 (Continued) 21:01 I found that the same symbols are along the wall here. 21:11 I jumped to Relto. 21:12 Jumped to D'ni. 21:13 Got the paper from the wall, as I read in some walkthrough. 21:16 Jumped to jumping station. 21:17 Cannot do anything. Need a KI, I guess. It is starting to look like I really have to play everything. 21:18 Jumped into purple world. 21:26 Pressed first cloth. 21:29 Set the first correctly. (Break)

22:10 (Continued) 22:13 Fixed second. 22:14 Jumped with stone. 22:17 Jumped to Relto. 22:20 Touched second cloth. 22:23 Fixed third. 22:24 Touched third cloth. 22:32 Touched paper with tree. 22:34 Touched cloth besides piramid. 22:40 Touched fifth cloth. 22:44 Quit.

Session 9: Evening of September 22, 2007

Today, I spend some times ordering and studying my notes about my earlier Uru investigations.

23:08 Started. 23:10 In Relto. 23:11 Jumped in "purple" world with cloth. 23:16 Climbed up and touched next cloth. 23:18 Went downstais, but pulled 1,4,2, which is wrong. 23:21 I thought I did 1,4,1,2, but nothing happened. 23:23 Did it again. Nothing happened. Maybe have to go away. 23:26 I went away, outside piramid. 23:27 Back. 23:28 Did it again. But still no success. 23:29 Touched nearby cloth and jumped to Relto. 23:30 Jumped to start of "purple" world. 23:32 Jumped to hint world. 23:33 I think I should do 4,4,1,2. Jumped to Relto. 23:35 Jumped back with cloth. Reseted machine. 23:38 I did 4,4,1,2 but nothing happened. 23:41 Again. No success. Maybe I should count from the left. 23:45 It still does not work. I become mad. 23:48 Quit. I read something in the notes about eight, and suddenly realize that the numbers indicate the number of times the handles should be pulled.

Session 10: Morning of September 23, 2007

9:13 Started. 9:15 Jumped with cloth into "purple" world. 9:19 It came down. 9:22 Standing at the panel. 9:23 Order 1,3,4,5,2,6 did not work. 9:33 The numbers represented the order. So pressed 1,5,2,3,4,6. 9:37 Pressed last cloth. Linking book to hints place. No use. (study notes.) 9:40 Where is the "stone" door in this age? I guess, I forgot. 9:43 Jumped with link book. 9:46 Back to Relto. 9:47 Jumped to "blue" world. 9:51 I got the KI, or not? 9:57 Touched cloth in other room. 9:59 I am on the top floor. 10:00 Inside gap. 10:02 In other room. Touched cloth. Played a little. 10:07 Quit.

Session 11: Afternoon of September 23, 2007

12:45 Started again. 12:48 Jumped with cloth into blue world. 13:04 Managed to switch everything on.

Let's not use it now. 13:26 I stepped in some device and it gave me new clothes with a helmet. I cannot remember having seen this before. 13:30 In other meeting room. 13:33 Touched cloth. Still three to go. 13:37 Went to other meeting room and jumped with stone. 13:40 Jumped to Relto. 13:42 I tried to take off the suit, but it did not work. 13:43 Jumped into yellow world. 13:49 Jumped, but came in the lava. Jumped back again. (Break.)

14:11 (Continued) 14:13 Tried to jump from vent in the middle, but failed. Jumped in again. 14:20 I closed the last one, but when I stepped on it, nothing happened. 14:21 Jumped down. Back in. 14:22 Fell down again. 14:23 Jumped in again. 14:27 I am up at the first cloth. 14:36 Jumped over wall. 14:38 Touched second cloth in other world. 14:39 Touched third. 14:40 Touched stone behind thing. 14:42 Jumped to Relto. 14:43 Jumped back in with cloth. 14:45 Touched fourth cloth. 14:48 Jumped to desert world. 14:54 I put the table in position.

But it is not. 22:19 Passed second door. 22:21 Took elevator down. 22:25 At the end. I suddenly remember you have to jump down. 22:26 Let's first press some nearby cloth before jumping. 22:27 I don't need to do this, I guess. 22:28 I missed. 22:29 Jumped with cloth. 22:33 Second attempt.

Session 23: Evening of October 21, 2007

17:21 Started. 17:24 Jumped to start of train world. 17:34 Activated ovens. Let's wait here. 17:48 The burners are off. (50, 40, 30) 17:51 It seems it is not possible to get to the other side. 17:52 Jumped to Relto. (Break.)

I copied the rest of the drawing, but not really have time to watch the other drawings on the walls. 18:21 Jumped to Relto. 18:22 Jumped to path of the shell. 18:32 I pushed the ball all the way till the top. Nothing has changed here. I still have no clue what you should do. (Break.)

19:01 I read in the hints that the number refer to verses in the new books in Relto. Searching the numbers on the notes: 1:38, 1:4, 1:89, 2:18, 2:30, 3:110, 3:72, 3:66, 4:10, 4:52, 5:57, 5:32 (or 33?), and 5:18. 19:18 Jumped to Relto.
1:4 The door lies at the end of the path.
1:38 The passing of time brings the path to the gathered.
1:89 Be still and the path will be made known.
2:18 The action of the gathered means nothing.
2:30 Darkness comes at the end of time.
3:66 The passing of time brings the past to the present.
3:72 Take time to understand the path of the shell.
3:110 The path of the stone is toil for the gathered.
4:10 The number of the watcher is sixhunderd and twenty five.
4:55 The way is made clear at the end of time.
5:18 The gathered will find rest when the light comes.
5:32 Roll the stone to know the deceiver.
5:57 The path is folly for those who tail.

21:02 (Continued.) Studied first book, without number. 21:05 Jumped to the Path of the shell. 21:15 Jumped to Relto and from there to train world with cloth. 21:17 Dropped third, jumped to Relto. 21:18 Jumped back in. 21:19 Dropped fourth.

Jumped to island world with cloth. 21:23 Jumped with cloth stone. 21:28 I practiced some with taking pictures. 21:35 I took two pictures. You can take at most one picture when a brick falls. I am waiting for the last brick. 21:36 I managed to take two pictures. Jumped back to Relto. Let's read the hints. 21:45 Okay, I read all the hints. You have to stand still in the light for 15 minutes. Jumped to Path of the Shell. 21:47 I switched it on and looked at the ground. Then I switched it off and on again. Now we have to wait 15 minutes. I did not find all the notes. I never would have been able to solve this puzzle on my own. Too far fetched. 22:02 The ticking sound stopped. 22:03 Found the ladder. 22:04 Pushed the button. 22:06 I am in the building after crossing the bridge. There is a cloth here. I pressed it. There is another drawing here. 22:11 I pushed the button but nothing smees to happen. It turns on after some time. 22:12 It is now dark outside. Did I do that? 22:13 I ran back, but I cannot get out anymore. 22:15 Jumped back to Relto. And back to the path of the shell. 22:18 The ladder is gone again. I switched on the light. The ticking sound is there again. Have to wait another 15 minutes. 22:32 Ladder activated. 22:38 I pushed the button and walked to the building. And I came back. 22:39 I jumped down, behind the ball. There is a hole in the ground. 22:41 I am back at the start again. How strange. 22:43 I switched off the light, which caused stair to dissappear again. And I walked to balcony. Which still gives the same view. (Break.)

22:57 (Continued.) When I came back, the stars were out again. 23:01 Jumped to Relto. 23:02 Jumped back with cloth. I walked back and I pushed button again. Nothing happened. 23:10 I walked around and I am back at the entrance hall. 23:15 I read in the hints that there is an "exit" in the "tree". Jumped to Relto. 23:16 Jumped back in with cloth. 23:18 I walked over the pattern onto the middle but nothing happened. Maybe have to wait another 15 minutes (or so). 23:23 It worked. 23:26 I am in the original Myst building. But everything seems empty. I picked up some clothes. 23:29 You can push the patterns on the door. 23:40 I keyed all four patterns but nothing happened. Maybe I have to draw them on top of each other. Let's try. 23:48 Again, nothing. 23:52 I had forgotten one. 23:56 I checked the solution in the hints, and discovered I had one wrong. 23:59 Found the linking book and jumped to it. 0:05 Some story by Yeesha. 0:12 Jumped to Relto.
