You don't have to get the receptionist to leave. You just need to use the same guy you used before to access the mainframe. There should be a handy memory he can use on the receptionistto gain access.

Looks like you first combo is the right one. The character you use won't give any indication at all of whether your calibration was right. You'll only know when Bennet (cop character) asks the cop at the desk for another copy of the will. After that, Bennet will pick up whatever document popped out and tell you what it is.

Okay try using the same guy you did before. Any STMs that could come in handy?

Resonance / Re: when will achievements unlock?

They unlock as soon as you achieve them in-game (at least as I see them in the game, since I don't have Steam). You can see your achievements in-game by pressing ESC to bring up the menu and then clicking on "Achievements".

By the way, it's not Adventure Studio Games, it's Adventure Games Studio, or AGS. So you'd call the games "AGS games".

Do you have an ATM card you use to withdraw money from the bank? Debit Cards double as ATM cards, so your ATM card may actually be a Debit Card. Unless it's really just a straight ATM card- look on your card. Sorry can't think of anything else.

I've made purchases on a website that uses euros (European based) with my paypal account attached to my USA bank account directly and never had issues with it.

Strange. Did you try both methods- changing payment method during checkout and changing your primary payment method through your profile? 

Do you perhaps have a credit card card or debit card (debit cards draw directly from your bank account) you can try? It may be because you're trying to make a direct withdrawal from your bank account, so there can be security issues. I think the transaction should go through fine if you use a credit/debit card instead.

I've never actually put any money "in" my Paypal account. I have a debit card/bank account on there, and a credit card I'm not using at the moment. It basically gets the funds from my bank account through my debit card every time I make a purchase. I did once have Paypal directly connected to my bank account, but that was because my debit card had expired and it was for the interim before my new card arrived.

It should be as easy as adding your credit/debit/bank account to your Paypal account (if you haven't already done so) and making sure to pick the appropriate payment option while checking out through Paypal.

Here's how to change payment options, taken directly from Paypal's Help Center:
You can choose your payment method during the send money flow.  Here's what to do:
During checkout, click Change or More Funding Options under Payment Method on the Review page.
On the next page, select the payment method you want and click Continue.
The payment method you selected will be used after your PayPal balance.

Alternately, you can simply change your primary payment method to credit/debit/bank account in your profile. Simple click on Profile and select My Money where you can see all accounts/cards/and PayPal Balance(or go to Profile-->Add or Edit Credit Card/Bank Account in the drop down menu). Click the Update link next to the card/account you want to switch to Primary. Check the box next to Make Primary and confirm, and Paypal should now use that card/account as your main payment option unless you change it in checkout.

You need to search for what the initials stand for.
Highlight here:Rosa should have automatically searched for and found what GCT stands for- Grant City Trust. You need to then search for "Grant City Trust" in Oogle. I found that searching for "Grant City Trust" didn't work until after I tried speaking with the ghost again. I don't know why, unless you were supposed to speak to him first and I just didn't realize that.

I've found balconies are a useful point of entry.

Another Hint:
Maybe those lock picks will work next door?

Gemini Rue / Re: question

I think that the issue has to do with WinXP, as I have a similar issue to SirPrimalform:

 I have a copy of the game on both my WinXP desktop (work pc- shhhhh...don't tell!   ;) ) and Win7 laptop, due to having downloaded the game on my desktop and then moving it to my laptop. There's no game icon on my WinXP copy, but the icon showed up just fine after I moved  it to my Win7 Laptop.

You are exhibiting extreme trollish behavior
Any more and you prove that you're just in it for the lulz.

Who appointed you arbiter of opinion and official forum police? I posted here because I have legitimate complaints about a game that I feel was marketed in a way that made it out to be something that it is not by a company that I initially had great respect for, but find that I am now unable to trust.

Honestly, I think the Blackwell games are fantastic and are exactly what I expected to get when I read the information about them on the website. But the three other games mentioned, most recently Gemini Rue, have been talked up on the site to be things that they're just not.

And this is the issue, by the way. It's not that Wadjet Eye dared to release a game of which I do not personally approve. It's that they consistently said things about these games that led me to believe that I would enjoy them, and I don't appreciate the fact that I spend my money (small though the amount may be) only to find that the game I received is not the one I was promised.

If you don't want to read what I have to say, as far as I'm aware no one is forcing you to read it. But when people attack me for making what I feel is a legitimate complaint about something I paid for in good faith I think I'm entitled to defend my position.

Maybe you should have tried the FREE DEMO first.

Also, if you're going to post a negative opinion and/or criticize a game in what pretty much amounts to it's official forum, be prepared to received some criticism/opposing opinions yourself.

By the way, how far did you even get in the game? The game is fairly simple up until you reach the gun tutorial playing as Delta Six. This can cause the game to seem a bit slow and straight forward. This is on purpose to get you used to the controls- you'll notice that you'll go through terminal usage tutorial, a box push/pull tutorial sequence, and a communicator usage sequence. After you go through the gun tutorial, you are on your own, and the puzzles/gameplay become less straightforward. I assume you didn't play much of it yet.

You mentioned having played Tales of Monkey Island- it seems you never played any of the earlier games in the series. I'm never been that interested in playing the Tales of Monkey Island (which by the way is the 5th game in the series), as they use the same style 3d graphics as the 4th Monkey Island game, which I did not like because of the graphics and because they suddenly decided to use controls based on console controllers (meaning keyboard controls for the pc). 

Tales of Monkey Island was produced almost 10 years after the 4th game. I suggest you try the original and classic first three Monkey Island games, which include Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, and Curse of Monkey Island. Keep in mind that the first game was released 20 years ago. You should also try some of the other LucasArts games, which are considered classic old school adventure games: Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Sam and Max. Maniac Mansion, the second adventure game released by LucasArts, remains the classic retro point and click adventure game standard today. My personal favorite is Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis- having replayed several times over the span of, oh 10+ years, I can say it never gets old.
