You know I bet she is out of the museum - the little scamp laugh

OK sleep on it and if nothing comes - I'll check.

There is a key that has been cleaned that is lying on a small table/counter top to the left of the voice activated chamber. What you find there will open something in Clive's/your friends office. You'll see what that is - if you decide to get some reading material out of the way.

Ohh this is one part I was glad I played the demo last year. I never forgot this and it is a tough one. Uhmmm there is a theory that if you keep batteries in the fridge they last longer. I remembered it and that's the only reason I worked this out and it still took a long while. A long while... Maybe something where you have to use the recorder might do the same thing.

Well that stinks. frown Maybe it will get there today. My Fed ex tracking showed it as still in Cal 30 minutes before they knocked on my door in ATlanta. So maybe the fed ex site isn't updating correctly.

I haven't even gotten back to chapter 3 yet. I want to savor this game. It goes fast when you know what needs to be done.

If you need the coffee I assume you wrecked her lazer and mask.
You need to re-check the Mayan exhibit
Get what's there
Show it to the janitor
take it to the restoration lab
use the hand lathe
show it to the janitor
be sure and check the trash can upstairs just by CLive's office after your coffee gets dissed
then you should get coffee

This is a great game! I got to chapter 3 and am roaming around picking up everything on the bus and working on "my plan". Thought I would never get that coffee ground-tried to push those statues at least 50 times. Kept me up till 2 A.M.

Sorry about that. lol Too much kid lingo around my place.

Dissed is short for being dissmissive.

The janitor is quite picky about the style and packaging of what coffee he places in the machine. It has to look and appear to be the same as what he uses. smile

No problem. This problem involves a lot of baby steps back and forth. You have to find the coffee beans - oops not ground! Grind - take it back - ewwww not the stuff I use ---re-package it and bingo - he'll use it.

Howwwwwwwwwwwdy! Aha! At least a few people are still in the museum! <ahem> Yvonne spies Laura way out in the lead..... sorry, I fell asleep at the switch! LOL! Ok, I'm back now... and in the museum!!! I must be right on FlowerPower's tail, but I'm sure she's long gone, too, by now.

Let's see, I'm in the room with the scanner.... the crucifix is in line to be restored... found an empty coffee bag in the trash... and not a clue what I'm trying to do now! Duuuuh...

Egaaaaaads! Laura, you're on Chapter 3??? Eeeeeeks!

She's Ba-a-ack We were about to send out a search party laugh


In this game you find things that you can't use until the character has a "need for it". SO far as I have seen if it can be looked at and seems interesting - it'll be used later on.

Yep you have more to do. The coffee run around is the next to the last thing practically in this chapter.

I am right behind Yvonne...in the museum. I have a question that pertains to the inventory. I seem to be collecting a lot of stuff...should I grab everything and anything that can be picked up...and is there a limit to how much the inventory can hold?

I guess what I really want to know is...has anyone come across inventory items for which they have not found a use? I'm getting a little nervous about picking up everything in sight. eek

This game is like a shot in the arm for me...I was getting in a funk where I was losing my enthusiasm for adventure gaming. RUNAWAY has rekindled my love affair! laugh

Cynch, I'd say pick up everything that isn't nailed down! I'm pretty sure that I remember reading in the manual that you'll use everything sooner or later--and I did notice that a whole bunch of stuff disappeared when I moved from chapter one to chapter two. So I don't think that there will be any problem with how much the inventory will hold.

What I'm wondering--is there a limit on the number of saved games...

I have used everything I had in inventory. At least I am pretty sure. <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

I was wondering about the saves too. I am, up to 9 now - so I'll find out fairly soon. smile

It's for sure, you will eventually use everything that you are able to pick up.

As for saves, I had about 24 on the first run through, and am simply adding to them as I play again to write the you-know-what. I am up to 32 saves, with no apparent limit in sight.

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed this great game, but Whew! The you-know-what is a LOT more work to write than usual. Don't know why, it just is.

Jenny - Jeeeez! Is there ever a day when you DON'T have to put up with a thunderstorm?

Hey, wait for me! <sniff> I'm looking for another battery now, too! Willy sure isn't very 'generous', is he! Now where the heck can I find a battery? Hmmmm... that 'crack' in Clive's desk was neat! Now where did Clive go with Gina??? I don't see him around anywhere.

Yvonne.... still stuck in Chapter 2
