    I am at the elevator. I have placed the bone in position. But the belt, that I earlier retrieved, has disappeared from my list of items. Totally gone and it is nowhere to be found again. What should I do? I have read here about other items gone missing. How did you find them again?

    I got it and I will try to explain it so it makes sense. The three pillars you use over if you need to. For example, to light up the left front pillar of the four pillars do this; Notice there are two red circles with the blue lines sticking out each side. That is what you need to make the circle look like on the other screen with the three pillars. So, hit the lever to refresh the contraption as you have to do each one at a time. Go to the right most pillar. Notice when the blue line is sticking out the left side, the other part shows the yellow/white line sticking out the bottom. So to get the middle circle to show the blue line, you move the yellow /white line to the same location as shown on that front right pillar. Then go back and hit the button. The red light lights up. Then touch the pillar and the circles change showing the blue line coming out the right side. Notice the yellow/white line is now coming down. Back out to the big circle where you should now see a blue line on the left matching the front right pillar and half of the front left pillar on the tower screen. Put the yellow/whit line in the spot it shows on that front right pillar and go back and hit the button. The light turns red. Now it is red on both faces when you transition back and forth. Now back out and look at the big circle, you made a blue line in the 3 and 9 o’clock positions to match the front left pillar on the next screen with the tower. Go there, hit that button and it turns red. There you go. You do this separately for each. So now look at one of the other pillars, note where the blue lines are. Go back to the three pillar screen, reset it by hitting the lever. Find the pillar that the blue line matches one of the blue lines on the pillar you chose, place the yellow/white line where it shows on the pillar with the blue line you are matching. It will now light up that one line. Not all are on one pillar. You have to look at the other pillars. Find the one with the other blue line you need, match the yellow/white line on the big circle and go back and hit the button. The light should turn red. Now back up and look at the big circle, there should be two blue lines to match the whatever pillar you chose from the other screen, the tower screen. The three pillars are simply used to match one blue line at a time using the yellow/white line to do so. Still sounds confusing but you’ll get it, play with that and keep reading what I wrote. Remember to reset the switch after each pillar on the tower screen is activated. You are simply making the big circle match the pillar from the tower screen then activating that tower… I’m in the tower now.

      i got it, the 3 pillars is connected with the 4 pillars, to open the tower, you have to activate the 4 pillars using the 3 pillars, one by one, you have to focus the yellow light of 3 pilars, the blue light is will reveal one you pres the button of the pillar, with exact location

      I’ve spent hours trying to figure these 4 pillars. Pulling out hair and getting ready to uninstall this game Until I saw your post. Thank you for making “Pillars for Dummies” so easy to understand.

    I,ve reached 18 in the lighthouse, but I can´t get the Topaz free. Have changed the gems as the picture shows, but nothing happens. Help!

    Once you have entered the tower, look in the barrel and get the amulet. look at the cogs and use bone and belt on broken cog.

    return to the other building with the statue of the woman and place amulet on her.

    This activates levers behind her. The centre symbol is now lit. press it to change the shape (they correspond with the large stones in the church. select a shape and press the lever that is in the direction you wish the large stone to move.

    spider shape left, man with arms raised top and nose right. Go back to church and you can see alter has opened revealing goggles.

    Go back to the building behind church and use goggles on platform at base of cogs you repaired.

    I will let you work out the reat, but be prepared for a somewhat disappointing ending 🙁

    I figured out the 4 pillars pretty okay, but have been stuck on the cathedral slabs for some time. For the life of me I cannot make the levers move in the direction the slabs should go. The move only up and down! Anybody have any tips on hoe you passed this puzzle?
