hey. I just played launch of the screaming narwhal again and figured out that the marquis cries out diferently on the correct eyes/nose/mouth.. The first time around i just used the weather vane so guybrush pointed it to the sky and looked really closely for the face that showed up and it worked..

really nice

    I think I tried using the weather vane but it didn't work. The marquis "cries" are the normal way to solve the puzzle.

  • I solved that puzzle with the weather vane also. :D
    The face from the weather vane when pointing it to the sky was exactly the same.
    Maybe I was lucky.
    Dind't knew anything about the marquis "cries". :D

  • The marquis makes noises?

    I just looked at the weather vane. Wasn't that the puzzle?

    :eek:

    Is that the cries or the faces he makes?

  • I just looked at the weather vane too. I thought there would be another way to solve it though. Just looking at the weather vane just didn't feel right. I'm glad you posted this because that was something that was bugging me.

    Yeah, I think you're right.

    owever, with him in there, it is impossible to use the weather vane to align the faces correctly. Guybrush will have to seek his clues from another source. Start adjusting the facial features. The marquis will cry out in pain with each adjustment, except for a certain one on each facial feature, where he'll moan softly.

    this is from the walkthru

    I used the weather vane the first time around and had no idea you could do it by listening to the noises the Marquis makes.

    On the second play through I'd heard about the "noises" method. It's odd - once you're listening for it, it's really obvious! When you get it in the right position he sounds very... erm... "happy". :p

  • Haha. I used the weather vane myself, and never figured this out. I went to the place in Flotsam where there's a close-up of Guybrush, and would pause the game to try to capture the fourth weather vane. I drew the correct answer and did it.

    Good to know there's a real solution, since it bugged me endlessly.

  • As I recall, just looking at the weather vane in my inventory was all it took. I noticed the different sounds the Marquis made, but I thought they were different at random. I didn't notice the "sigh" was during the correct solution.

    I'm surprised that the weather vane _could_ be used to solve this puzzle! *lol*
