ok its a great runthrough but im stuck on a bit that i think is harder than you make out.

on chapter 3 when you are about halfway through and you see the corpse hanging from the tree, you say do this:-

Click on POND. (At the end of the river, to the right)
Pick up note. (Recordkeeper 6/9)
- "Leave me alone, would you?"
Pick up rope.
Walk to jungle.

problem is, it wont let me pick up the rope. i already have a rope, which i used on the cliff, but i need another bit to get down the bottom, so how do i get this 2nd rope? nothing seems to work.

You need to go get the gun powder and the cannon ball from the volcano fort. Also, you will need the flint (rock on top of the note at the dam). Go there and blow up the dam, then head back for the rope.

AWESOME walk through! Thank You! all 200 achieved

Also, you can note that you can skip picking up all of the Recordkeeper notes, items, etc on your 2nd play through.

I'm not quite sure what you mean here, I've given you three different methods;

Walk to dam.
Use handful of gunpowder with dam.
[Use flint with cannon ball.]
OR
[Use flint with staple remover.]
OR
[Use flint with spyglass.]

I can see where that might cause problems, so would you like me to delete two of them, leaving just one solution and removing any possible confusion?

Good guide, just got Human Cannonball in 1:12h

If you still correct the guide you can delete:

- Task 5 - Get A Crew
Use 272 pieces of eight in grog machine. (You will need to walk down the dock a little way)
(why should some1 do that?^^)


Open drawer. (The dresser where the ink was)
Look at drawer.
Look at dusty book.

(you dont need the book)

€: btw you can blow up the dam if you use the lens with the sun.

Yeah, I thought I'd got rid of that one, sorry!

Again, I thought I'd deleted this ages ago; I originally used the BOOKMARK with the FIRE to light the CANNON, but changed it to the FEATHER PEN (that you have to pick up to gain access to the INK).

I think the DAM section is confusing people; there are numerous single-step ways of removing the blockage. I'll leave it as it is for now!

Thanks dude. Got my 200/200 on this game. I wasn't really digging it early on so decided to just run through for achievements. I actually confused this with another game which is why I bought it, thankfully all was not lost.

Thanks to this walkthrough, I got Human Cannonball! Awesome work.

By the way, did anyone else notice that the voice of Meathook is the voice of, among MANY others, Liquid Snake from Metal Gear Solid, the flamethrowers from Halo Wars, and Leonardo from the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon?

You need to continue to fight other pirates so you can learn more insults. Once you have learned enough, you she will let you fight her.

Excellent guide. Thanks so much.

I have one suggestion though. The part with the noteworthy rock that turns into a flint. You say look at the noteworthy rock, maybe you could add "(in inventory)" or something like that. I lost a bit of time trying to find the noteworthy everywhere in the scenario. Took me ages to realise i had it in inventory, because you don't actually pick it, you pick the note under it to get it.

I belive most didn't have this problem, but could be useful to some people.

thanks a lot again, great work.

Just a quick note to say thank you for an excellent guide, it was extremely helpful in getting all the achievements.

As a random trivia, you can also use stan's business card or the map (if you bought it) in the fire in part 2.
