Three general questions and a "Have you done this yet. . . "

Alright, here are my three questions:

#1: I noticed in LBA 1 that you are the fourth member of the Elves Club. Obviously, Joe the Elf and Raymond the Elf are two other members, but who is the third member? This has been bugging me.

#2: What's with all those people in the Twinsun Cafe? They stand as still as statues, and never move. At first, I thought the point they were trying to make was that they were incredibly bored, but even after you improve the show they don't move. How come?

#3: I tried out this cheat code that I was very skeptical about: Hold down B + I + G for "Life Health and Jetpack Power." I tried it just to see if it worked, but wasn't surprised when it didn't because there is no "jetpack power." If this cheat code isn't fake, how does it work?

Thanks. Any answers would be appreciated.

P.S. - In LBA1, has anybody ever tried this? When you return to Principal Island to infiltrate Dr. FunFrock's Headquarters, take a little detour to the Water Tower and pour some Clear Water in the Water Supply (it doesn't use up all the Clear Water, there's plenty left for the Stone of the Septentrion). Then, go to the library and talk to the Chief Librarian (you know, the Rabbibunny who was overjoyed when you added the cherry syrup and let you read the legendary book). He'll say the following to you:

"I don't know what you put in the water supply this time, but my kidney stone has vanished! Thank you!"

Then he gives you several clovers!

Anybody tried it?

I think this has been brought up before. The answer: "dunno."

LBA1 is very old, y'know. It ran on a 386DX (or, incidentally, on a 486SX)! There's no way it could have had all those sprites moving all at once. So, they were included as static objects in the room. That's why Twinsen gets hurt if he bumps into them.

This is fake. Just as fake as the "TWINSEN'S BACK" cheat, methinks.

Hope Kieron answered your questions. Maybe we should make him head soothsayer of the new "Q & A" forum?

Twinsun Café People

I don't think they are not moving because LBA is an old game. Ever tried to run into them? When you do that, the same thing happens as you run into walls- you lose life points. You get that? This band is so boring, that they have to use statues so that it looks as though they have many fans!

I thought someone had good arguments somewhere on this forum, proving that FunFrock was the 3rd elve.

I think Kieron is right about the sprites part. There was no way they were going to make them all move about. BTW: in the PSX version Twinsen doesn't get hurt when he runs into walls or still sprites

----------------

The B+I+G cheat is fake, you don't even get jetpack fuel. Some people said they could make the TWINSENSBACK cheat work, I couldn't though

------------------

I remember that one time when I returned to the library, the librarian asked if it was Twinsen who changed the water. I answered "No" because I though he was gonna beat the cra* out of me.

------------------

It could be Funfrock. How else would he have the power to possess Elf gates? Or it might be another plothole.

Personally, I think they accidently forgot to put in a 3rd elf. Or they had too less time, like with the robot in Citadel Island. Or they just didn't see the reason for another elf and forgot to change the text line.

It could be many things.

It was mainly because all of his blue doors could be opened with an Elf's card. So that would mean that FunFrock would need an Elves card to open those as well. Therefore he should be a member of the Elves club.

Personally I just think it had to do with the color of the card and not what it was made for

There is a chance that Funfrock could actually be the third elf, considering the amount of elf technology he has

I don't think the hat would fit on his head, actually

Isn't the third elf at the Water Tower? At some point in the game, you can return to the Water Tower, and at the teleporter there, an elf will come out and say (roughly along these lines)

"Whoa, I don't recommend teleporting, it's far too dangerous! And only the clones can do it."

He then remains there for the rest of the game. Is that Joe, or the 3rd elf? But at the same time Joe is still on Desert Island.....

I figured the reference to teleporting meant that the elf came from elsewhere...

And since the elf was not a new color, it seemed that it was one of the one's you'd met already.

That's Raymond from the Hamalayi, I believe. He also mentions that when he's walking in the Hamalayi he suddenly teleports.
