Copy Protection Code Wheel
Elvira II uses 3-ply code wheel. When copy protection screen appears, the game show four elements -- a SPELL ICON, a MONSTER, an EMPLOYEE'S TITLE, and a SPELL NAME -- and a text box to type in. The instructions from game manual follows:
- First, rotate the outer ring of the codewheel until the Spell Icon lines up with the Monster on the middle ring of the codewheel.
- Now rotate the inner ring so the Employee's Title is lined up under the Spell Icon and Monster that you just lined up.
- OK, here's where a lot of people mess up. Pay attention now! Now, without moving any of the rings, find the Spell Name on the inner ring.
- There is a cut-out window immediately above the Spell Name. In that window is a 4-digit Number.
- Use the pointer to press the 4-digit number on the Action Windows number pad.
You'll get three chances to type a correct number. Chumley, If you miss all three times, I will personally punt you out of the studio.
Elvira II: The Jaws of Cerberus is the second game in the Elvira series. The game is a sequel to 1990's Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. It was followed by Waxworks, which can be considered its spiritual sequel.

The player seeks Elvira in a horror movie studio where the props and movie sets have turned into actual monstrosities, apparently as a result of building the studio on haunted grounds...
