After you have gotten the key and opened the third drawer, you will get two chess pieces. Past will place them on the board, with white on bottom right corner and black on botton left corner. Future will get a screwdriver to open the bolts on the left of the device and get a chess board and two more pieces.

Future takes white and Past takes black. You need some knowledge of chess for this as for several turns, you will need to communicate and let the other know what move they have to make. Finally, Past player will get a coin and Future will get a Red Floppy Disk.

Future can get the yellow disk from the device, and enter the red one. Past will need to place the coins on Albert’s eyes. Some puzzles will need to be redone, such as the notch puzzle. Here are the solutions:

  • Notch 5 on Row 1
  • Notch 2 on Row 2
  • Notch 4 on Row 3

The switches need to be changed as well: 

  • Switch 3 Down in Row 1
  • Switch 3 Down on Row 2

You will need to change the eye symbol to the wall in the coffin room and find the shadow of Albert along with the Fuses. There are three Fuses that you need to insert into the device to get the new time which is 21:10. So, Past player will need to change the time to 9:10. Then, you will get the Golden Cube and end Chapter 1 of The Past Within.
