Have just left the Morgue and went to the bar in the Blue Casket and then to Manny's office to get a letter and a book. For the life of me cannot find either one. Have traveled around that room so much am dizzy and have gotten stuck playing the gamboling game to the point I have a save just before Manny gets stuck so I can resume looking for letter and book. Where are they? eek

I'm not sure I have you at the right place, but I don't think you are supposed to pick up a paper. Just a pen...
You might try checking another WT to see if there is a difference.

EDIT: Ok, I think I know where you are now. The letter and the book should be in your inventory, aka Manny's jacket. Take a look and see if you have it in inventory.

Lilac, I'm not sure exactly where you are, but in addition to the two walkthroughs here at GameBoomers, you can find three more at The Spoiler Centre and one at Bert Jamin's site .

Maybe one of them will answer your question--if not, give us a little more information as to where you are and what you've already done...

If you are having trouble accessing inventory easily, try hitting the "I" key -- then you can scroll quickly through the items using the right and left arrow keys.

Just to expand on Becky's advice--when you open the inventory, the last item you looked at will be the one that comes up, so if you know you're going to need something, cycle through ahead of time until you get to what you are going to need. That way it will be right there when you open the inventory...

I was stuck at the hut where you were supposed to dope Naranja's drink. I used a saved file to get by this and when I opened the saved file I was in the morgue. I checked several WTs and the saved game seems to have worked well. I did everything in the morgue, got Naranja reported dead and then re the WTs was supposed to go to the Blue Casket bar and show the letter on the three men at the back of the bar. WT then says - oh you forgot the letter - go to Manny's office pick up letter and a book on the table. Will check more WTs but the ones I have all say the same thing. Even checked the Universal Hint system but seemed to get to more info. And I have gone through all Manny has in inventory but no letter and no book. I believe the save has not left something out.

PS - The WTs are mentioning Salvador as the person who gave the letter to Manny and then it supposedly appears in Manny's office. So maybe in this save I have used, the person forgot to get the paper from Salvador. Anyone know who and where Salavor is? May need to back track and see if I can pick up that letter. So far have not found the name Salvador in any WT.

Lilac, as I said before, it's been a long time since I played GF, but wasn't Salvador the guy who was the leader of the rebels? You got the pigeon eggs for him so he could establish a system for sending messages, remember....

You're right Jenny. Sal is the leader of the rebels and Manny meets him in the first part of the game before he goes off to any other part of the world.

Gosh when I left off GF - I had done nothing around Salvador. I was stuck on getting Naranja to drink that soda so he would go to sleep so I could something from him. Then when I resumed GF game I used the last save sent me to get me by Naranja bit and I was thrown into the morgue where Manny gets to put dog tags on Naranja and he then is declared dead. All of this went well until the WT then said go to Manny's office for that letter and book.

So since the letter is NOT there then that save I used must have not contacted Salvador. I have yet to hear about him, the pigeon eggs etc. Maybe I need to backtrack a bit into my saved games sent me and see if I can do better about being positioned just after the Naranja bit where he drinks the spiked soda.

Too bad I had to redo my 98 PC because though I saved all my games and those sent me, did not keep track of what was what and so here I am wondering where in the heck I am at:)

DL, my thought is that since you missed the part with Salvador which is in the first part of the game, maybe you should start over from the beginning. I'm not sure you can go back to that place from where you are now. Sorry you have had so much trouble but keep us in the loop.

Lilac, I'm a little confused here, because I don't see how you could have gotten out of year one without doing the stuff with Sal. Maybe you should read over one of the walkthroughs and see if it doesn't bring back some memories, because I don't think the game would let you advance to the second year without having done these things...

You are so right Jenny. Did just that and it did bring back the memory of Sal etc. So now what I have done is to install GR fresh on my XP and then used MY saved games as starter places so that using someone else's saved game will not throw me off. Was successful and played through getting the metal detector, going to the morgue and getting Naranja declared dead! So now I am elated - rushed up to Manny's office because I thought for sure the paper and book would be there - imagine my disappointment when it is just as bare as before when I was using others' saved games. So wonder what I have done wrong or missed? Like you do not believe I would be in year two if I had not gotten that letter etc. So am totally confounded now. Have to sleep on it and see what pops up in my tiny befuddled brain:)

DL, now that you have the game setup the way you want it, did you think to check the inventory in Manny's jacket? Click on 'I' and go through the inventory to see if the letter is there. You may have to float the cursor over the items to see what they are. It you have been through the part with Sal then the letter should be in Manny's jacket.

Have done that until I am blue in the face - so unless I do not recognize the letter, it is not there. How can one float the cursor over the items when the cursor is not used in this game? Is there another way to tell me what the items are? A certain key perhaps? The WTs say the letter is supposed to be on the desk and not in the inventory. May have to go waaaaaaay back in my saved games into year 1 to see if I can find that confounded letter:) Unless someone else has some great ideas? smile
