    I suck.
    I can get out of the house, but then... PAIN!

    If I could save I would have continued trying.

    You should not take the towel from Ford, deny it twice and he`ll go talk to Prosser. If you haven`t gotten that far, lie down in front of the bulldozer.

    Order a cheese sandwich at the pub... then give it to the dog outside the pub.

    When its dark, wait four times and see which sense you have control of (it`ll be smell the first time)

    The word to type in the keyboard is one of the first three words from the second verse of his poetry. To get him to read the second verse, you have to "enjoy poetry". When you type the word in the keyboard, make sure to use double quotes.

    That`ll get you into the Heart of Gold. Remember your name is "arthur dent" (no lying). Be persistant about getting into the room it doesn`t want you to go in (not marvin`s closet though). Look around until you can get the improbability drive. You NEED the plotter from the vogon ship for this. Best place to hook it up is on the bridge.

    Good luck, may you all be eating the fruits of you

    that still doesn`t help me you know.... I asked for the exact word to type.... it is always the same thing of "third word in second verse" I type it in using double quotes and it blows me up.... can someone actually put the exact word to put in to quotes so I can make sure I put it in right....

    To get out of the room, you have to put on the gown, look in the pocket, and take the analgesic. Then you can go outside.

    once I`m aboard the heart of gold what do i do? I seem to be all alone, except for marvin and eddie and the nutrimat and the annoying door. I`ve managed to get a lot of stuff that is useless as far as I can tell. Any idea. Seistar pick up the device Ford drops then look at it.

    drink beer
    drink beer

    Continuing...

    get towel

    this is optional, but you have time to kill until you are taken to the captains quarters

    put screwdriver in gown
    put toothbrush in gown

    ---- captains quarters

    z
    z (he should be reading by now)
    enjoy poetry
    z
    z
    z (captain should be finished with the first verse)
    z (get the word you need)
    z
    z
    z
    z

    -- back in hold
    (my game, the word I needed was lyshus, the word is always random though)
    type "lyshus" on keyboard
    get plotter

    get satchel (not necessary, but now you have time to kill)
    z
    z
    z

    still going...

    (on the bridge)
    drop drive
    d
    drop guide (fun reading material, not needed though)
    w
    press pad
    get substitute
    e
    u
    drop substitute
    put small plug in small receptacle
    put dangly bit in substitute
    turn on device

    **Now you are at the point in the game where you will go different places as different people. There are 5 different "side adventures". Three of them are designed for you to acquire the four different kinds of fluff (you already have the pocket fluff). When you are on the side adventures for fluff, you must either put the fluff in a handbag, toolbox, or give the fluff directly to Arthur (when he`s good and drunk). The bag and toolbox will be on the Heart of Gold when you finish that side quest.

    Randomly, you will appear in your own head, and in five rounds, your head will explode. Hope you saved before that!

    The tools are used at the very end of the game. You should put all tools down on the bottom level of the ship, next to the room that says "you can only enter with one item"

    Man, this game tortured me for years when I was a kid. I still play it now and again on my C64. Ahhhhh, nostalgia. . .
