How do the envelope/mail symbols work when you scan them?

#1 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

how exactly do you use them, I keep finding the puple envelope / mail icons everywhere but can never read any message, and now I finally figured out this raven puzzle to open a keypad door, but the scan gave me another envelope / mail symbol (presumably with the door code) and I have no idea how to use or see or open it... any help would be apreciated it, got the game paused and really want to open this door damn it :(

Look through your pad at the marked spot, you'll see the spraypainted message (they're made up of a series of different symbols/drawings). You need to be fairly close range for it to show clearly.

thats what im already doing... goddamn it. i see what looks like a E, which i guess could be a 3 reversed... a Z (i guess its a 2), and then the other 2 are just gibirish, half a zero mayvbe...who knows... how is someone supposed to figure this out

Those are to do with the orange envelopes, and you won't be able to do anything with that stuff until later as I understand it (I haven't gotten far enough to be able to do anything with that stuff either). My answer was for the purple envelopes, sorry, I should have been specific about that.

If it's what I think you're talking about those are the codes for various doors, but you can't view them until fairly late in the game.

Just make a mental note of where they are and come back later, you'll know when you can do it.
