Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

How do you get the dittany from Hagrid’s hut?

Games Guru: There is no dittany in the hut. It’s in Hagrid’s garden. After you’ve gotten the bag of beans and knocked down the block, whack the pod right, up, left, up, left and then up. Head up and then left to the moving block, and please do it carefully: if you fall, you have to start all over again. Move over the platforms and gingerly pick up the dittany (and the beans, too).

I need to know how to make the queen and pawn fight on the third board of chess. Can you help me?

Games Guru: There appear to be a few possible solutions for this rather aggressive iteration of chess. Start on a white square, then move up and to the left twice. After that, you can either move left, then right, then down; or take a third up-and-left followed by down and to the right and then one more down. Either one of these solutions should work.

How can you defeat Voldemort?

Games Guru: The trick is to use the mirror of Erised. Have Harry stand between the mirror and Voldemort. When Voldemort fires, have the mirror and Harry absorb the shot, then fire it back at He Who Must Not Be Named. You will eventually defeat the fiend with his own magic.

It seems impossible to kill Lord Voldemort, except for shooting the pillars and doing it at an angle so they’ll land on him. But what I don’t understand is when I shoot the mirror, it starts turning. What is that supposed to mean?

Games Guru: The trick to beating Lord Voldemort (better known as “He Who Must Not Be Named”) is to use the mirror. Voldemort will attempt to kill Harry with two different spells. You will be able to differentiate which spell he is using by the color of his hands. If you see white sparks flying from his hands, run and keep running until he has cast his spell. If you see his hands flashing red, go stand directly in front of the mirror. The mirror will shine a light shield around Harry that will allow him to absorb the spell without getting hurt. Once Harry has absorbed the spell and turned green, you can shoot the spell back at Lord Voldemort by pressing your X button.

    Game Guru I need help is there a way to defeat the green dogs after the chess game and I know I need to use Lumos

  3. if you press the squiggiley line above the TAB key and the game console will come out type in any code you can think of or you can use already known codes from any cheat are a few codes




    these codes are NOT the way you would type them .there are certain ways to type them like some may have allcaps or just one cap.

    if they dont work try any way to type them.

    when they are activated there will normally be a wand swishing noise.

    this whole thing is called DEBUG MODE.

    i hope you all will use this and HAVE FUN!

    • You know you didnt tell them about how to enable debug mode. After you push ~ then type: set engine.playerpawn bcheatsenabled true. Then you can type all the codes gabot4 gave you. Now you can HAVE FUN!

  4. Thanks for the code! It seems to be working!!!!

    Ya so, i’m a girl who cares, it really doesnt matter…..

    This game is so fun. But it gets rather boring sometimes.

    I’d rather stick to the movies and books!
