# How do I solve the clock room?

There's a room with a huge clock in the temple/science warp zone. I think I just have to wait until something appears, but how long should I wait?

There are four anticubes in the clock puzzle. Each will show when one of the clock's four hands hit the top. There is a limited window for catching the anticube before it disappears. The times differ between consoles, but the hands' speeds are the same:

• Red cycles every minute.
• Blue cycles hourly.
• Green cycles daily (24 hours).
• Gray cycles every week (7 days).

You'll need to check your clock and figure when it'll hit the top. Either check back then or change your 360's time from the system settings (you'll need to disconnect from the Internet).

E.g., my blue always hit at :15 past the hour, my green always hit at 7 p.m. (once a day), and my gray hit at 4 a.m. with a rather large window (since it moves slowly).

• Interestingly, my grey hit at Jan 6th, 8:12 am. I thought this was based on another clue, but I guess it was coincidence? May 1, 2012 at 0:46
• For me it hits: 3rd June 2020, 6:00 pm (London timezone) May 28, 2020 at 23:10

Some people on other forums are saying the grey/white is every 48 hours. It's definitely more than that!

These:

...are a difference of sixteen to twenty hours between each. By my own estimates based off each quarter of the clock being roughly 40 hours, that means a total of roughly 160 hours give or take a dozen or so, meaning the 7-day estimate appears to be correct.

Maybe it's different between the PC and the XBox versions, I don't know.

Note: If you change your PC's time, you have to exit Fez and then start it back up. You'll still be in the clock-tower room, but you'd be at the bottom of the tower.
