2019: Walkthrough by: Louis Koot
This my English translation of my Dutch Rhem 1 SE walkthrough that I made in 2017. The screenshots in this walkthrough come from the Dutch walkthrough and most of the text on the screenshots are in Dutch, but I don't think that this will give you problems. You can always learn the Dutch language if you do have problems understanding what's on the screenshot. I have taking the trouble to learn a bit of English, so why don't you make an effort to learn Dutch
Chapter 2: Arrival Valley part 2
A: Bring up the Bridge at the 4-Way Tower
Control Room: Turn the Water Tower
Turn immediately to the gray door and close the door. On the door you see a map.
Click on the map to view it briefly and then zoom out again.
Turn left. You will see a "7 Buttons Viewer Screen". Turn left again and you look again at that light Brown Panel. Turn Left again and jet a screen with a Red and a Blue Button below it. Turn right again and you look again at the Light Brown panel. Now click on this panel:
The Light Brown Panel:
Open the panel by clicking on it. You see a schematic picture of the interior of the Round Water Tower. You see the 4 "doors" and the "ladder shaft".
You see that the South door is now connected to the East door. You are now on the South side of the round Water Tower. By pressing the button you can turn the ladder shaft 1 position to the left. So press the button once so that the South door is connected to the West door.
Then close the panel again, zoom out and turn right. You see the "7 Buttons Viewer Screen" again. Zoom in on it:
The "7 Buttons Viewer Screen"
Number the 7 buttons, from Left to Right, now first as 1 to 7. Then press any 4 of the 7 buttons. The number 1234 appears in the screen but in various colored numbers. Press another combination of 4 buttons. Again the number 1234 appears in the screen but now in other colors. No matter what combination of 4 buttons you press, 1234 will always appear in the screen, but always in different colors.
So far you have found 2 of these "7 Buttons Viewers", namely one with Purple buttons and one with Red buttons. There are more on Rhem. What you have to do here is to come after the CODE for each of these Viewers. A Viewer Code always consists of pressing 4 of the 7 buttons. So you have to make sure that the number 1234 always appears in the screen and the 4 digits of that number must always have the same COLOR.
So you have to get the number 1234 in RED, PURPLE, GREEN and BLUE on the screen. The number combination of the buttons to be pressed is then always the code for the Viewers. It is a matter of endless testing, but to save you this trouble I have already done that for you. So number the 7 buttons, from left to right, as 1 to 7 and then press the buttons:
You have not found the Blue and the Green Viewer yet, but these are the only 4 combinations in which you get the number 1234 in one color. So there is a Purple Viewer, a Red Viewer, a Green Viewer and a Blue Viewer to be found on Rhem and for all 4 you now know the code. Zoom out and turn left 2 times and you will look at the screen with the Red and the Blue Button again.
Water Tower Rotation screen:
Press the Red Button. You see a schematic representation of a swing bridge. Press the Blue Button to turn this swing bridge.
Zoom out and turn Left and open the gray door and step outside again. Walk back to the blue door of the Water Tower and enter again .......... ..... The inside of the Water Tower is now turned a turn because right in front of you is now again the ladder shaft. But you do not go there. Click in the Wooden Corridor and follow it back again and then open the Blue Door and step outside again.
Slanted right and diagonally left through the gate and follow the path. You can then move left and right.
Turn left and then go down to the end of this path
You are standing on a round platform and here you will find 3 panels. A left, a middle and a right panel. The Left panel has an I, a round screen and 4 red buttons. You can pull the top red button all the way down and then release it. The button then slowly goes up again and each time this button is in the same position as one of the other 3 buttons, 2 white triangles appear on the screen, each time in a different location.
I have no idea what to do with this at this moment in the game, but I'm sure we'll figure it out somewhere else in the game.
The Middle panel has a screen with 4 buttons next to it. The top button is lilac in color.
If you press the lilac button and then one of the others, a schedule of the water level appears twice on the screen.
The ratio is first 4: 0 and then 3: 1. However, the bottom button does nothing.
The Blue Viewer
The right panel is the blue Viewer. Zoom in on it and press the 4 buttons according to the code for the blue viewer, as you have determined in the Control room. So press the buttons 2361.
One after the other, a green Oval appears in the screen and then you'll see a "3 pointed pyramid".
Note this down on your piece of paper: blue Viewer = green oval and a 3 pointed pyramid. You'll need this knowledge later on in the game
Then turn right and then go back up on the stairs. You came from the right, so go straight ahead and down to the gate
Enter the gate and then diagonally to the right to leave the gate again. Behind the gate you see a long wooden path above the water and on the left you see a long stretched stone building, it is the
Manhole Cover Building:
The Second Red Viewer
At the entrance of the building stand the a red Viewer. Go forward, left and then zoom in on the red viewer. Press the 4 buttons for the red Viewer code. That is 5216.
You then see in the screen a purple Oval and then a white Zigzag Line. Note this down again ..... so write down .... Red Viewer = purple oval and white zigzag line.
Zoom out and turn right and then go forwards and then Diagonally Left to enter the building and walk on to the gray door.
Don't concern yourself with the puzzle panel that sticks onto the gray door ...... that will come later. Open the door and then look down .......You will see a manhole cover in the floor.
Click on the manhole cover to zoom in on it and then click on the handle. The lid does not open. Click on the "Hand". The round disc will now turn and the long slide will slide backwards. Click on the handle again and now the manhole cover will open. A ladder will go down, but you will not go down through this round hole now. We will do that later.
First we will figure out something else. Zoom out twice. The lid is closed again. Look up and then turn around completely and go outside through the gate again.
Then go diagonally left, forward, left and then follow the wooden walkway to the gate in the back.
Step through the gate and then follow the path and ....... you then reach the:
Water Pump Pump field
Go Forward, Left, Forward, Right, Forward, Right, Forward and ... ... zoom in on the pipe with the mano meter
This is Pump D. Press and hold the red button. The indicator of the meter will now move. Press and hold the red button until you hear a sound.
Then make a note of the number that the indicator points out as soon as you hear the sound. For this Pump D that is the number 7
Turn around and go forward, right, forward, left and ........ you stand at Pump C.
Pump, repeat what you did at Pump D with the red button and write down the number that the pointer points when you hear the sound. For Pump C this is the number 2.
Turn right, forward, left, forward and you are at Pump B .....
Again you do your thing with the red button and you note down the number that the indicator points at the sound. That is the number 3.
Turn around and follow the path to the end and ................ you are at Pump A.
for the 4th time you press the red button and you note down the number 4:
You have now been at the 4 Pumps in this right side field and have noted down at which numbers you hear the sound: Pump A = 4; Pump B = 3; Pump C = 2; Pump D = 7. Look a bit to the right of the pipe. You see the telescope and there we go now because you have to find another sequence of numbers. Turn around and go forwards, turn left and follow the path straight ahead, ....
.......turn left, follow the path straight ahead and then left and follow the outer path and .......
..........you end up at the
First look down. At the base of the telescope you see a Spiral that ends at the left.
Look up again and click in the telescope's peephole.
So now you have this series of numbers via the telescope: A = 9; B = 6; C = 5; D = 1.
Turn left and follow the path back to the entrance / exit of this pump field and then walk back to the manhole cover building.
Go back to the entrance of the manhole cover building, at the red viewer, and enter again. Open the gray door again and zoom in again on the manhole cover and open it again .....
Now we go down through this manhole......Click on the ladder and descend down and when you're down you click Slight Left down to turn around.
3e Red Viewer
You are now facing the bottom path that goes over the water.
To the right is a gate but now we now go straight ahead. So follow the straight path ........you go through a gate again and then you will see a second red Viewer standing right in front of you
Click Slanted Left to stand in front of the Viewer and press the buttons 5216. In the viewer window a Blue Oval appears and then db. Note this down again
Turn right and then go 8 clicks forwards and you are standing in front of the Blue Door of the:
Water Pump Control Building
Open the door and enter. In this building the water supply that comes from the Pumps at the Pumps Field is regulated.
You see a platform and 4 pipes where 4 panels are hanging on First turn left ... You see a second platform with a ladder.
That ladder platform can not be reached from this side but look up here and ....... You can see that you can go up via the "ladder chimney" and you see the 2nd Pentagram code on the "chimney" ....Note down this code on the piece of paper where you also wrote down the first code.
Look down again and turn right and now, via the diagonally left, walk onto the platform where the 4 panels are hanging on the pipes .... Name the panels, from left to right, A, B, C, D, Open up the 4 panels. Each panel has 3 buttons with a spiral on it and 3 number buttons. In A, B and C all numbers are 0 but in D you see 3 crosses.
Go back to the door through which you came in and then turn left and walk along the thick pipe to the door on the other side. Turn right and you will see another panel.
This panel has a button and this button now points to the number 0. Below the button you see a square where you see 2 vertical lines. If you press this square you will hear a sound.
Turn to the left and go to the ladder platform and then climb up the ladder.
Above the Water Pump Control Building:
Hall with doors:
At the top of the ladder, turn right and go to the gate. Go stand straight in front of the gate ....... you can turn left and right ......... first go right and then left .....
You are in right corridor ..... unfortunately .... the blue door is closed tight and you can't open it here
Go back and now go into the left corridor ........ Another blue door and this one is also shut tight. In the back, however, there's a red lever in a green niche.
Pull the red lever down.......This opens the gray door here.
So turn left and then first look down ... the gray door is now flat but the door now closes a ladder hole. Look up again and step into the hallway and turn right
There is a pipe schedule stuck on the wall ...... Take a closer look at the schedule .......
Zoom out, turn right and step through the gate. On your left is then a closed door on which a panel with 3 Blue Stars, this is the 3 Stars Door.
On your right, a Red Square pressure plate sticks in the wall and straight forward you see an open gate.
Press the red Square pressure plate and that 3 stars door will open, so step through the stars door outside.
You'll see a large round Platform with a kind of Telescope. The platform is connected to an iron bridge......we go there later.
Turn left and follow the path until you reach a green Viewer at the next gate
Stand in front of the viewer and zoom in on it. Press the buttons 1745. You will see an orange Oval and then a stylized M. Note this down again.
Turn around and step through the gate and walk on to the
Water Pump Pump field: Left side
You are on the left side of the field. Walk into the field and follow the outer path to the telescope
Note that the spiral under the telescope ends to the right. Zoom in on the telescope and then click on the peephole and you will look through the telescope. Now move the visor to the left (so your mouse to the right) until you see Pump A. Aim the line of sight in the middle of the pipe and note the number. A = 0. Now move the visor to the right (your mouse to the left) to arrive at Source D, C and B in succession.
Write down the numbers, so: A = 0; B = 8; C = 5 and D = 3
If you have this, go out the close-up and turn 2 times left and then click Diagonally Left to get back at the gate and follow the "bridges" path all the way back to the Green Viewer. Then go right, forward, left and notice the board next to the next gate. On this board you see 2 green arrows, each with 3 circles with a yellow line. The top arrow points to the right and the bottom arrow points to the left. These 2 arrows are an indication for solving the "Clock door" that you have to open soon.
Go through the gate and follow the path back to the 3 star door and enter the hall again. Click on the red pressure plate again to close the 3 Stars Door.
Go through the gate right in front of you and then right and left through the next gate. Go right and .....
Opening the "Clock door":
You are in a hall and to your right is a closed door. A large panel hangs on the wall, on the left side of this door. Click Slanted Right to stand in front of the door. The door is locked and must be opened. Zoom in on the panel.
The panel has 3 buttons and 3 little red lights. The buttons are, from top to bottom: Green, Red and Green and between the Red button and the Lower Green button you see the 3 small lights that aren't on right now . The Upper Green Button is located in a round window.
We will try it out first....So we do a trail run first
What you have to achieve is that ALL 3 lights STAY ON so that the door opens. You can achieve this by setting the Yellow Line 3 times to the RIGHT position in the round window.
Consider the round window as a CLOCK. Then the Yellow Stripe is the POINTER of the clock. If you press the Red Button once, then the Yellow Line appears at the 12 o'clock position, you press the red button again, then the Yellow Line moves to the 2 o'clock position, then to the 3 o'clock position, the 4 o'clock position , the 6 o'clock position, the 8 o'clock position, the 9 o'clock position, the 10 o'clock position and back to the 12 o'clock position.
The board with the 2 arrows has in fact given you the solution for this puzzle.
Let the Yellow Line disappear so that you are in the starting position of this puzzle. Then do the following successively:
All 3 lights are on for a moment and the door is now OPEN but the other door is now closed, so you can't go back now.
Click Diagonally Left in the door opening to continue, then Diagonally Right to go through the next gate. On the left is the gate through which you have entered these hallways from the Water pump Control Building. You now come out of the right corridor ..... Go through the gate right in front of you and then to the right. You are back in the left corridor at the red lever. Pull the red lever down again to close the door on the left.
The ladder hole in that hall is now open again but you now have to walk around, through the right corridor and the secret door, to reach the ladder hole. So back to the right corridor and step through the door again. You are then back at the 2 doors of which you have just opened the left door via the panel. Now you have to close this door again, so that the right door will be open again. So click on the button panel and do the following:
The left door will close and the right door opening will open again. So step through the right door into the 3 star door hall and walk back to the left hall where the ladder hole in the floor is now open again.
Climb down the ladder into the pipe cellar. Then turn around to the left. You are standing in the pipes cellar of the water pump control building. You can see a pipe scheme on the wall again. This time you will also see a turning wheel on it. Turn right and then click on the turning wheel that's on top of the rear pipe. The wheel turns and you hear water flowing.
Turn back to the ladder and climb up again. You have to go back to the right hall to open the "Clock door" door again via the panel ...
So walk the route back to that door and zoom in on the panel again and open the door again via the way you did this the 1st time so .....
The left door opens again, so go diagonally to the left, then diagonally to the right through the gate. Slightly left through the next gate, diagonally to the right and then diagonally left and look down. You are back at the top of the ladder you came out from of the Water Pump building:
Water pump control Building:
Go down the ladder again and turn right at the bottom and walk to the panel at the back door.
Turn right and go back along the big pipes to the other door. Turn around and step back on the platform with the 4 panels.
From the back door you number these 4 panels as A, B, C, D and you ensure that you stand directly in front of panels A and B and. You now have to enter the numbers on these 4 panels that you have found in the Water Pump field with the 4 meters and the telescopes. So open the 4 panels one by one and enter the numbers. You do this by clicking on the spiral buttons.
Now return to the panel at the back door and press again on the bottom square with the 2 vertical lines.
The button then jumps to the right and now points to the number 1 and in the square water flows between the 2 vertical lines.
These two dashes thus appear to be a schematic representation of a pipe. You also hear the water flowing. You have now raised the bridge at the 4-way tower.
The 2e Purple Viewer
Turn left and go out through the back door. The path turns left ..... follow the path first 4 clicks ahead ..... You go through the short tunnel.
When you are out of the tunnel then turn immediately to the right and ....... you are standing in front of a second purple Viewer.
Press the 7534 buttons and in the screen you will see a square diagram of which 1 square is all white and then you see the number 1. Note this down this again.
Turn left and follow the path further .... The path then turns right and you go through 2 successive gates.
After the second gate the path continues along a masonry wall and you get to a bridge that lies over a brook.
Go over the bridge. There is a turn to the left but first go straight ahead and ....... ..... the next bridge has collapsed, so you can not go further here.
Look down .... You see a red button ..... Press the red button .....
Nothing happens now when you press the red button but on the other side there is also a red button and if you also press that button, when you're there later on, then stepping stones will come up out of the water and you can go back and forth via this short cut. So press this red button on this side now.
Look up again and turn left and go back to the first bridge and then go right and forward to the large gray panel.
Open the gray panel by clicking on it. You see 3 screens, 2 yellow buttons and a blue button. In the 2 left screens you see an icon. The right screen is empty. Press the button, under the right screen, and an icon will now appear. You have activated the Radar Antenna with this. We will come back later. Close the panel.
Back to the Water Tower
Second Blue Viewer
You are now going to make a number of very long walks. First of all, you must now return to the ladder under the manhole cover building. So turn around and follow the path all the way back to the back door of the Water Pump Control Building. Go in through the back door and walk through the building to the front door. Now leave the building through the front door. Follow the path back to the ladder under the Manhole Cover Building. Don't go up the ladder now but go through the gate to the left of the ladder.
Now we will follow the path to the lower South door of the round Water Tower and it is a long walk. Follow the path through a gate ..... The path becomes a gray path and you reach a stone staircase. Climb up the stairs and on the other side climb down again.
After another 3 clicks there is a Viewer on the right between the rocks, so go to it....This is the second Blue viewer.
Press the buttons 2361. In the screen you see a Square Diagram of which 1 square is white and then the number 4. Note this down again
Zoom out and turn around and follow the path to the Lower South door of the Round Water Tower
Back inside the Manhole Cover Building
Go through the door and to the ladder in the ladder shaft. Look up and climb the ladder all the way up. When you're up you turn around and walk to the Blue Door. Turn around again so that you look at the ladder niche again. Go through the Wooden Corridor and then leave the tower through the Blue Door.
Follow the path ...... up the stairs. To the left is that round platform with the 3 panels.
Take the right stairs down the stairs and follow the path until you have reached the "plank path" where the Manhole Cover Building is.
Enter the Manhole Cover Building and close the door with the Mosaic Panel. The gray door MUST be closed now because otherwise you can not go on.
Turn around and go outside again and follow the same route all the way back to the Round Water Tower. Go back in and back through the Wooden Corridor and go down the Ladder in the Ladder Shaft. Leave the Water Tower through the Lower South Door again. Follow the path back over the gray stone bridge, through the two gates and then the tile path to the junction. Then go left to the ladder under the Manhole Cover Building.
Climb up the ladder and then open the manhole cover above your head and climb through the round hole. You are now behind the gray mosaic door in the Manhole Cover Building. Because you just have closed that gray door you are now in a narrow corridor behind the gray door, which is now in your back. On the back wall of this stone corridor, you now see the same mosaic as on the gray door.
Continue to the Mosaic panel. Then move your cursor over this mosaic from bottom to top. You do not have to click..... just move your cursor over the gray areas. 3 of the 22 gray boxes on the right will become BROWN as you move your cursor on them. These 3 brown patches are indications of entering a new area. So it seems logic that you note the position of these three brown areas. Number the gray areas, from top left to bottom right, as 1 to 22. The gray areas that then turn brown are the 7th, 13th and 18th pieces.
Turn around and descend the manhole cover ladder again. You now have to go back to the Control Room at the top of the Round Water Tower.
So follow the route back to the lower south door of the round Water Tower.
Open the door and go in and to the ladder. Climb up and turn around and go to and through the Blue Door (this is the Upper South Door). Walk to the Gray Door, open it and enter the Control Room.
Zoom in on the Light Brown Panel, open the panel and connect, with the black button, the Upper South door (bottom) with the Lower East door (right).
With this you have turned the inside of the Water Tower so that the Upper South Door is now connected to the Lower East Door. Close the panel, turn around and enter the water tower through the Gray Door and the Blue Door. Because you have turned the inner part of the tower the ladder shaft is not right in front of you now. Follow the Wooden Corridor backwards, until you reach the Upper Eastern Door.
Then turn around and enter the Ladder niche and descend the ladder again. Below you turn around and leave the Water Tower through the Lower East door.
Back to the first Purple Viewer
You are going to take a long walk again because you have to go back to the first purple viewer that you saw in chapter 1. Follow the path .... you reach a tunnel .....
Continue through the tunnel and ....... You are back on the path where that guy was on the balcony and drove away with your rail cart.
Follow the path further and at the gate you turn left. Follow the path back to the wooden stairs and climb up and go through the gate.
Climb down via the long wooden staircase. Go through the tunneling under the stairs and follow the path on the other side.
In the back, go up the stairs and then to the left. Right through the gate and to the next staircase.
Look down and go down the stairs and walk to the Purple Viewer.
You have already been here at the beginning of the game. Zoom in on the viewer and press the buttons 7534.
In the screen you see a diagram of squares and the square at the top left is white, then you see the number 3. Note this again on your piece of paper
Back to the 4-Way Tower
Now you have to follow the route all the way back to the 4-way Tower. So first follow the route back to the long wooden staircase ..... Climb the stairs again and then follow the route back to that open gate where the gray path between the rocks then turn right to the balcony where you saw that guy standing on. Now go through the gate again and continue to the path that goes over the lake.
Follow the path to the bridge on the other side. Don't cross the bridge yet but first go right again, to the 1e Red Viewer.
Zoom in on the viewer and press the buttons 5216 and note down that you see a squares diagram of which the left upper square is white and then the number 6.
Zoom out, turn around, diagonally right to the bridge, forward to go to and through the gate and ..... you will see the round 4-way tower again.
Walk to the board with the diagram about how to bring the bridge up / down. Go right and ....... look .......
the bridge has now come UP and now you can go further and through the round 4- way tower
NB: if this bridge not up now then you have done something wrong somewhere, probably in the Water Pump Control Building.
