Need help...I found all the black and white balls and the blue plates....I put the stuff in the summator and I got the first 2 rosaries, however on the third one I changed the balls like it shows on the yellow columns but the last chest won't open...if I click on the chest it says "Use the summator". Anyone have any idea what to do to fix this? Maybe I don't have the balls correct, but I put them the way they are on the columns.

It's binary addition. The obelisks tell you which balls are 1 and which are 0. Check out this thread: http://www.enkord.com/forum/showthread.php?t=749

This is what it looks like.
Top row: W B W B B W
2nd row: W B B W B B I have tried different combinations, but chest still won't open--- W W B B W B, B W B B W B, W B B B W B. Can anyone tell me the correct order??? Nothing seems to work.

You need the obelisks to tell you which color is 1 and which is 0. Once you have that, add the last column of the first row to the last column of the second row, just like regular addition. Use the obelisk to tell you what the result is. That's what the bottom row should be. Keep doing that just like regular addition. For the last obelisk that looks like an L, it's just carrying the 1, like regular addition.

I have done that....I change the balls on the bottom to black on the ones I need to and the last chest still won't open.....the first column (from left to right) is 2 white balls, 2nd column is 2 black balls, 3rd column is 1 white and 1 black, 4th column is 1 black and 1 white, 5th column is 2 black and the 6th column is 1 white and 1 black.....using the binary....the blacks are 1 and the whites are 0.....so working from the right to left---the 6th row should be black, the 5th should be white, the 4th black, the 3rd black, the 2nd white and the 1st column should be black according to the yellow pillars......I have tried it with black and with white and I also did it backwards.....starting on the left....chest will still NOT open......the first 2 chests opened just fine.....is only the last one that won't.

You aren't carrying your 1s. With the 5th column both 1s, they add to 10, with the 1 being carried to the 4th column. Even though they don't appear on the screen, they have to figure in your calculations. It might help if you write it down and make sure you are including the carried 1s in your calculations.

Yes I am carrying the 1s....Just tell me what color each should be so I can check if it's right and then I can figure out if it is a glitch or not.
white black white black black white
white black black white black black.....that's row 1 and row 2 from left to right
black white black black white black....that's what i have on bottom row. Following the examples on the yellow pillars.....6th column should be black, 5th should be white with the black carried to the 4th column and then 4th should be black, 3rd should be black, 2nd should be white with black carried to the 1st column and then 1st should be black...if this is correct then I have a problem with the game....which is what I need to figure out...if I new how to take a pic of it, I'd post it.

If the first row is WBWBBW and
and second row is WBBWBB
then you have
0 1 0 1 1 0
0 1 1 0 1 1

Working from the left:
0+1=1
1+1=10, so you have to carry the 1
1+0=1 plus the carried 1=10, carry the 1
0+1=1, plus the carried 1=10, carry the 1
1+1=10, plus the carried 1=11, carry the 1 (but remember to leave the unit there)

So the sum in base 2 is 1 1 0 0 0 1, or BBWWWB

This is the trickiest one of the three!

I hope this helps. Happy gaming!
