Anyone out there playing this one?

I’ve been gutting my way through this one and have gotten most of the way done and am more than happy to help anyone who wants some hints and help on it (just tell me where you’re stuck and I’ll help all I can) but I am really hoping that someone else out there has also made it as far as the note for the door with the code involving “greater than” and “less than” signs (with the check marks and circles over some of the values) cuz I am SOOOO hopelessly stuck on it.

__ __ > __ _ _ < __

(double underscores denote 2 digit number positions and single underscores denote 1 digit number positions)

There is a precise "typed" check mark over the first number position, a "hand drawn" check over the first "greater than" symbol, a "hand drawn" circle over the 4th number position, and a precise "typed" circle over the "less than" symbol.

I have the note with the numbers 7, 5, 20, 23, 5, 20 which doesn't match up with the correct positions for 2 and 1 digit positions in the door code.

I then soaked the paper in the spilled oil on the table of tools which revealed a clock face where:
*the hour hand is marked with a precisely typed circle and is pointing to 4 o'clock (or 20 minutes).
*the second hand is marked with a precisely typed check mark and is pointing to 37 minutes (you can zoom in on either side of the clock face and see the precise minute hash marks for all of these)
*there is a hand drawn circle over the 5 o'clock (or 25 minutes) position.
*there is a hand drawn check mark over the 50 minute (or 10 o'clock) position

I've tried all manner of substituting the clock numbers, or adding them, have tried using the minute values and the hour values and rearranging the other numbers and pretty much have tried everything my brain can think of no matter how simple, complex, or just plain bizarre an idea is and I just can't seem to figure it out! Grrrrrr!

Oh, I have also tried to use the red key which it says "seems to fit, but…."

Anybody solve this one?

Hey I am guessing these numbers correlate with the ones displayed on the computer monitor after you hook up the security camera to it using the USB cord… But where did you find the note?

TazCat

The #s on the computer stand for letters: a simple substitution where A=1, B=2, C=3, etc. which gives you IANTSOT which then has to be rearranged… there may be some logic to the order that I missed but I just treated it as a random anagram and pretty quickly came up with STATION which will open the top drawer of the desk to the right of the one with the computer. There you will find a screwdriver piece that can be attached to the socket wrench in place of the actual socket and then used in a couple spots.

I’m trying to remember where I found the particular note that I mentioned above… and for the life of me I can’t recall LOL Anyway I’ve solved all the other codes and puzzles and am now down to needing to solve the door code and finding the key to the large safe (under the smaller lockbox).

Okay… So THAT’S how I got the note! LOL

If you put the note in the little puddle of oil on the tool table it will reveal the clock face image I have been babbling about.

Got out but never opened big safe or door on its right. nor did i manage to retrieve the nail. anyone succeeded? Didn’t say bad or good end… but I’d like to open thaz last door. anyone found out? For the hands on the clock (if anyone still needs it) you have to read both: hours and minutes. The actaully indicate smaller/bigger.

So what’s the code?

TazCat

I’ve been wracking my brain for ways to understand the “>” and “<" symbols on the door other than as the mathematical "greater than" and "less than" symbols in the hopes that I would suddenly have an epiphany as to how to combine the numbers 7, 5, 20, 23, 5, 20 with the times indicated on the clock face image by the various circles and check marks but…. I am still hopelessly stuck.

Maybe I'm making it too hard somehow and it's so easy I just can't see it…
Or maybe I'm just not bright enough or clever enough to figure it out…

Im in the same boat. I see 10 (fat tick), 37 (skinny tick), 5 (skinny circle), 4 (fat circle) with 7 & 20 on either side once note dipped. Thought maybe the 4 was 16 as is fat circle, and then magically gives 6 digits for door code. Nope still trying. Maybe the 7 & 20 are the numbers on clock eg. 7 is 9 or 21. Ok ok im also over thinking but im baffled. Lol. Also got red key and can see nail

For the record:
At this point I have a red key and the note. The only other item I can see but not yet successfully retrieved is the nail at the top of the window to the right of the coded door.

Oh man I did originally think the computer numbers stood for letters and then WAY over thought it and didn’t realize that I should just unscramble the letters haha I kept waiting to find another clue to give order of letters!

Hrm, got as far as giving the mystery person a receipt. Put paper in machine but can’t do anything else. You say that the mystery person is supposed to give you something? Assuming that it’s a game glitch and I need to start over if I didn’t get anything …

Red key is in the wall plate. You need to unscrew the four corners to open.

I’m stuck, and don’t know what to do or get next. I have the ratchet, socket, USB cable, and the scissors. Help!

Open the box with the scissors. Also put the ratchet and socket together to loosen the bolt where the wire cutters are. Once you get the wire cutters open the chain door and you will find something behind the boxes.

Nobody’s really helping at all. I see a bunch of people asking for help from people who are obviously past them but no response. I have a wrench a socket and USB cable yet I can do nothing with them. I am going through every bit of this room changing items and tapping every spot in the room and nothing will work. I have up on these games a while back and I forgot why but now I remember it’s like you have to hit one damn pixel for it to operate. So would anybody care to throw out some actual help so that we may catch up to you and also help you out

Use the oil pump to suck water at the corner to melt the ice, u will get the door knob from it. After sucking the water on floor u can switch the computer on too.

Mitch have you sucked up the water off the ground with the oil pump or have you went over to the camera click the ladder on the camera the use bolt cutters to cut wires then use wrench on camera or the USB cable to get it down. The combine USB and camera then click that to the computer an if you have the water sucked up click the breaker box and the click camera the click the monitor the numbers up top go to the top draw code which is station
