Hi Lynthorpe,
I just found a text and image walkthrough on the gamepressure.com site. I'm following it now. On that site they refer to "walkthroughs" as "GUIDES", just in case you are looking for the word "walkthrough". I'm just getting used to the controls and the unusual gameplay used in this game, especially the way inventory is used on different items. ENJOY!
Sandy

I just started the game myself and the mouse cursor problem gave me fits for quite a while. I couldn't highlight anything at all or get it to respond when I would click on it. I then discovered that you need to match the game resolution with your computer's screen resolution. Now it is working great.

I agree that the interface requires some getting used to. I'm still in the prologue.

About the walkthrough that I mentioned on this thread, It only covers the "Prologue" section of the game and one scene in Chapter 1. I'm pretty sure, they will eventually add additional pages to their walkthrough, but for now, it's really incomplete. Sorry if I spoke too soon about this, fellow Boomers.

I have found a video walkthrough in English on Youtube. I'm not sure how far through the game it goes but it's way ahead of me. I'm now in the studio.

Thanks, oldman, that's very useful to know !! thumbsup

I'm not crazy about the interface (though I suppose it's consistent with the original,) but other than that, I'm really enjoying the game so far. Most people here have gotten a lot farther than me. It's been a crazy week for me, so I haven't made it past the prologue yet. lol Looking forward to playing some more this weekend. thumbsup

Sorry to hear some of you are having technical issues. frown Hopefully, they'll get those resolved soon.

We seriously need a text WT for this game....MaG!!! I've got fairly far with a little help from the video but there's a lot of repetitive time-wasting. This game needs a WT which only deals with the things you HAVE to do not all the side-tracking stuff. I'm not crazy about the interface either especially with a mouse. I don't have a controller so it's very awkward.

Hi oldman,
Since you have the game, do you see any way to access the game resolution?
There was that "settings screen" that popped up the first time you start the game, but there is a question in Glitches about what to do if that "settings screen" isn't appearing any more.

+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+

There's a positive review of the Playstation 4 version here

He probably wasn't using a mouse with his PS4.

Beats me. Fortunately I changed the resolution when the settings screen popped up. However since I've changed the resolution to match my desktop the settings thingy no longer pops up.

My resolution matches the desktop, but I still have some troubles with the dissapearing cursor... To say nothing of the terrible interface!
Still, the story looks to be just great.

Sanford found a way to get rid of the disappearing cursor problem on his computer and has posted it in Glitches.
http://www.gameboomers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1089367/Yesterday_Origins#Post1089358
  • Go to the "Yesterday Origins" folder which is inside the Steam folder
  • Right-click the game exe --> Properties --> Compatibility tab
  • Check the box for "Disable Display Scaling"
  • Check the box for "Run as Administrator"
  • Save the changes
  • Create a new desktop shortcut to the game exe and use that instead of the one created during the installation.

It may not work for everyone, but it's worth a try.

Thanks for passing that along, Jenny. So far, as I advance in the game I have not experienced the "disappearing cursor" at all, so that's a good sign. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I just heard back from Microids and they assured me that this is pure point and click adventure.

Well, a fiasco frown

After being told by Game UK (a huge game site) I wouldn't need Steam to run the DVD version of yesterday Origins, my DVD arrived today. And guess what ?? When I put the disk in the drive I was immediately asked for Steam !! mad

So then I had to arrange a "return and refund" - which took nearly two hours hardwall

However, I HAVE arranged everything now - and at no cost to me, apart from the disappointment and hassle whistle

Guess I'll have to choose something from my teetering stack of "unplayed" instead lol
