The characters first introduced in The ClueFinders' 3rd Grade are back, eager to begin a new and exciting adventure. This one commences in a village in the Himalayan mountains where the townspeople have gathered for a festival. When the time comes for the presentation of the ancient treasures, the treasure room is found to be empty. …Kids work their way through the village, solving math puzzles in eight activity locations, and earning clues in an attempt to discover what treasure was stolen, where it is hidden, and who stole it. Each clue allows the student to exclude possible suspects, objects and locations, so that eventually the correct combination can be deduced. At this point an accusation is made, and the user, if correct, recovers one of the stolen treasures. A total of 24 treasures must be recovered to ultimately solve the mystery and find out who (or what) is responsible for the alarming footprints in the snow (SuperKids)

I think the German "2CD set" version responds to the Deluxe version, while the English version on this page responds to an older version.

But I vote for leaving it as it is, tho'.

If the architecture were different, I would not ask, but do.

English version 7.1 to 9.2.2, german version 8.0 to 9.2.2,
16 MB RAM, compared to 32 MB RAM requested for german version,
22 MB hard disk space, compared to 32 MB requested hdd space for german version.

I think, the Compatibility field offers enough room for all these informations as well.

When the german version stays here, which I agree with,
nice to see the english version in the first internal download area above.

I think it is better on the one page unless the system requirements are so different.

For german version, Sherlock 2 finds "clue" parts of this game within the Preferences folder (16 MB) ,
located within "The Learning Company".
So I think this is what the Installer copies onto the hard disk.
The game itself needs to be started directly from CD-ROM.

I wonder whether I should create a separate entry for the non-english version,

  • since it has also very different system requirements,
  • and a 2nd CD-ROM included.

To clean up/restore the original entry.

Thanks, I need to look for it on my Pismo, where I've installed it.
If I had seen such a folder, I'm sure I had recognized it. Smile

-->After installing the game, I can't find it on the hard disk drive.<-----

From memory, the English version installs into a folder called Learning Company or The Learning Company at the top level of the disk tree

Got an original box of a non-English version, but it lists very different system requirements as given on the SuperKids review page (Non-W31, Non-Mac OS 7) .

  • Comes with Acrobat Reader 5.0
  • Installs w/o asking for a location.
  • When starting the game, every title screen needs to be clicked to continue.
  • When running the game, it first ask for sign in. Enter your player’s name.
  • The main screen options are:
    • „Spiel beenden“ (quit)
    • „Neuer Spieler“ (add a new player)
    • „Spielen“ (play a game)
    • „Übungsmodus“ (learning lesson)

I’ve no idea in which folder this game has been installed.
After installing the game, I can't find it on the hard disk drive.
