Forklift room bug
« on: June 26, 2012, 06:53:16 AM »
SPOILER ALERT - this post contains clues for the forklift room.

Loving this brilliant game!

I'm currently in the forklift room. (As Ray) I was using the scanner on the locker door and trying to move the key inside using the magnet. I had to leave the game, so saved it at this point. When I came back to the game, the magnet was stuck behind the BACK button on the locker screen. I cannot get to the magnet because the BACK button is in the way. I have tried moving the scanner out of the way and tried doing it as Bennett, too, but the magnet is still behind the BACK button when he clicks on the locker. Is there anything I can do?

Thanks,

Spifferama

Have you tried reloading your auto-savegame? First one in your list of saved games.

Yes, but unfortunately the autosaved game now post-dates the saved game.

Wait a sec, I'll check it!

You got the magnet in the top right corner of the locker?

Solution:
There's a short delay in scrolling the screen up & down (i.e. the mouse pointer moves slightly faster, than the screen scrolls up & down).

- Go all the way up
- Use mouse pointer (close to back button &magnet) to scroll the screen down slightly
- Then change direction to up again and use the short delay of the scrolling screen to click and grab magnet and pull 'it away from under the back button' (while the back button "is not there yet", obviously :P).

You have to be really quick about it, but it'll work after a few trys.

Glad you like the game! Good luck!

Aaaaaahhhh, this bit of advice just saved my life! I thought I'd have to play again all the way from opening the puzzle box. Thank you!  :-*
