How do I use the game in a single-computer classroom?

You'll want to attach a projection device to that single computer. Get in touch with your technical administrator to make this happen.

Why can't I view and print the lesson plans for Lure of the Labyrinth?

It's probably because your computer doesn't have the Adobe Acrobat Reader application. You can download it here.

Why does it take so long for the game to load on my computer?

It's likely because you have a relatively slow Internet connection. If at all possible, use a broadband connection when you play Lure of the Labyrinth?.

My students scored points during their game play, but the points weren't added to their total. Why?

This can happen when students forget to click either 'Done' or 'Replay' when they've finished with a puzzle. Clicking 'Done' or 'Replay' will ensure that the points they've scored will be added to their total and saved for next time.

My students are posting inappropriate comments on the Lure of the Labyrinth TPC. How can I make them stop?

First, try using some of the steps outlined here. If all else fails, you do have the option of disabling your students' capacity to post messages on the TPC by using the Administrator Tool.

My students are playing Lure of the Labyrinth on several different computers and it's way too noisy! How do I cut out the cacophony?

Lure of the Labyrinth's music and narration are big parts of its immersive experience, so try having your students use headphones if you have them available. If you don't have headphones, you can have your students turn off the music and narration in the 'Options' area of their TPCs or when they first start the game when they elect to either play the game or play a puzzle.

My students are playing Lure of the Labyrinth and they can't hear its sound and music. How do we pump up the volume?

When they start the game, students can access the options area to turn on or off the music or narration. Of course, students can also use the 'Options' area of the TPC to turn on Lure of the Labyrinth's music. If they've done this and still can't hear the game, have them check to make sure that their speakers or headphones are properly connected, powered up (if necessary), and that the volume on all devices is turned on.

For any other questions, talk with your school's technical administrator or contact us at MPT.
