This is my first time playing Myst, I have no clue what or where to start on the island. I'm trying to figure out the marker switches to get my first message. Not sure what I'm looking for or where to input the data when I figure it out. Anyone that can give this rookie a little help would be appreciated, thx...

To give as small a hint as possible:
[spoiler]I'll just say go back to the dock that you started out on, and look around for some kind of door[/spoiler]

First Welcome to the forums and the community! Yes getting started can be a little confusing but the main thing is to explore and check out everything on the island. The "rule" in Myst has always been "do what you would do if you were really there" :) That worked for me the first time I played. If you need more help than that, there is an excellent hint guide through the options menu in the game that will gently give you hints or if you want, give you outright answers depending on how much help you feel you need.

I like to remind you that you need to use the spoilertag in this section (General Discussion iPhone)
No spoilertag is used in Spoilers , Hints and Tips iPhone and Technical Discussion iPhone
Please see this post.

Thanks.

There is also some books that aren't burned you may want to read threw. My first time I just went around and touched everything,

What Mystdee said still holds true. You've walked up from the dock and are now facing log stairs going up a grassy slop. Hmmm.....is that a piece of crumpled up paper there on the grass?

[spoiler]Why don't I see what happens if I touch it?[/spoiler]
Whenever you are at a new spot always do a full 360 turn around and check out everything you see. (Don't forget to look up or down when you can.) Touch and see what happens. Like LuigiHann's hint. :wink:
