Codename ICEMAN help

Post by Rakeesh » Sun Jul 04, 2010 7:56 am

Sorry if this is not the proper place for this, but I found no suitable section for this game

Although I have played and finished the game a couple of times before (with a walkthrough of course!) this last time I am stuck

I am struggling with the second time I get to the control panel, that means right after I plot a course.

I have the order to turn to degrees 330 and I do so. Then I have a notification for sonar contact and I comply. Then I get a warning "Watch your heading". No matter what I do afterwards, I die.

I have found only two walkthroughs on the whole internet. One of them has no piloting hints. The other (which is found all over the net) had piloting hints; it says that when I get the warning I am supposed to turn heading to 0 degrees, but even then, it makes no difference; I still die.

I've never played the game myself, so I can't help you, and I don't know what walkthroughs you've checked, but is this one among them? If not, maybe it can help ;)

Yea guys, these walkthroughs/hints are found in many pages. The hint page doesn't include guidance for the simulation sequences.

However I found out that the problem was because of a common misunderstanding, which is mistakenly reproduced in this walkthrough.

The walkthrough says:
# Activate sonar : press shift-F3.
# Set course to 330. When ask watch where you are heading, set course to 0.

The messages indeed say about a sonar and "330 degrees" however these are NOT commands, but reports. You are not supposed to comply to these. So what I did was turning to 330 which the game got as a wrong move and led me to death.

The solution is simple: don't do anything, maintain the same course to 0

The best walkthrough I know of is found at http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Codename:_ICEMAN

PS. Iceman has too few fans I guess :)

Unfortunately, so. It is really one of Sierra's under dogs. :)

I've finished the game and if anybody needs any help with it, feel free to ask. :)

Help with Codename:Iceman

Post by matthew_78 » Tue Nov 08, 2011 4:28 pm

Hey everyone.

I'm having a load of trouble in Tunisia. Right after i get the map from the fisherman, I try to go directly to where the disguise is hidden. Every time I get caught by a guard on the screen with the two doorways. I have checked all the walkthrough/solutions but no help is given on this. I almost think there is a bug in the version im using on "Boxer" dos emulator.

Any help would be huge.
Thanks

Hi there. There is not a particular puzzle here. Just try to avoid him. If he is there, just wait until he leaves. Walk when he is absent.
