[SPOILER] Oswalds Oil Bug?
« on: January 15, 2014, 03:33:45 PM »
Hi,
is it a bug that i cannot take Oswalds oil from the bar after i send him away (i said him i found Rex or something similar)?
If i try i get the message that it is Oswalds oil, but i read somewhere that i can take it if i send him away. If i leave the screen and come back, i is not willing to leave anymore.

Yes, this does happen, but it is not a bug. :) There are several other places to get oil if you miss the opportunity to get Oswald's.

Put another way: There are at least two other non-oil ways to accomplish the task that the oil would have been used for. :)

Hi Sergio,

It's not a bug.  Horatio is pretty respectful of private property, so before he'll be willing to take Oswald's oil, he has to have some good reason to do so.  The robotic bartender will supply that reason if you interact with him.  That said, Oswald only leaves once, so if you've already tricked him into leaving and he's come back, you'll have to forget about the oil.  It's not necessary for winning.  As Dave notes, there are two alternatives you can use when the time comes.
