Hi MaG,

No, I never installed the 80 Days demo (or any other demo for that matter). I did install 80 Days from the CD by clicking on the setup.exe. since my computer is not set up to autorun. Even with the patch, the game doesn't work. I just removed everything. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.
Bowsel

Have tried opening the game from the Apllication (80 Days).exe from - C:\Program Files\Trisynergy\Frogwares\80 Days.

It takes time to process, be sure that you are giving it time to go before moving into another procedure. Once it gets going, it works fine. Also be sure that CD 1 is on the CD drive you installed the game (if you have 2 drives). I play this game with no other program going.

Also be sure that when you installed the game that your antivirus program is off - that affects the installing. If so - uninstall and reinstall.

Please post at Glitches forum, if you have problem after doing this.

You are so right, MaG about eye candy. I also only run now. I tried all other means in the demos and they gave me motion sickness, I enjoyed though an elephant riding around the neighborhood, it was so realistic, ambient sound of voices, laughing...

I LOVE this game except for the climbing/jumping bits.I'm trying to get hold of the rope to go rescue the bird but I just can't make him get his arms out to grab the rope.If I press space and forward he justs jumps forward.If I press run + space + forward he falls off and I hate heights.Anyone got any good advice?
Ever grateful.

Try to just jump with not directional arrow - press space bar while under the right rope.

Two related glitches so far, perhaps, first one:
Jumping/climbing. In the room of ruins in Cairo when you must climb over the slabs of rock to leave the crypt area, I could not get him to climb. He only would jump. I tried over and over. Finally, I went back Otto and got him to show me again how to leave the place and then I went back and immediately was able to climb. I think that the reason I couldn't the first time was possibly cause I had not gone straight from the hint to the climb, but I slept first. Another glitch happened in that same statue ruin area which was worse: suddenly I couldn't walk in any direction but forward, I could not turn, only step left and right or back but always faced in same direction. Finally I had to exit game and ended up having to gather up all the chalices again as a result!!!
Anone else have that happen or is it my cordless mouse acting funky with a game again?

I find jumping too tiresome. Always takes a lot of repeating to finish. Especially it was difficult for me to jump on the overhead beam in the prison.
I am a little stuck now near the giant Buddha. I dropped from the rope on the circle, there are quite a few circles around Buddha. On which one exactly should I step to make him turn? I stepped and walked on every circle and Buddha is still motionless as ...Buddha.
Thanks.

Springchicken,

I find that you have to position yourself to make a jump that gets you through. As for the jail, you have to be one step before the beam to get up.
We all have to try and try before finding that spot.

As for the Buddha by the bridge, there is only one circle on the top of the back wall (where you should be) that you step on. See the minimap and learn that you should be at a level higher than the ground where the Buddha is located.

Kahless,

Sorry - missed your post. That did not happen to me. I personally do not like cordless mouse. They are sluggish or sometimes unreactive for my purpose.

I tried to play the game on my slave cd my bottom one and It kept taking me back to my desktop, so I put the cd in my master drive the top one and it played fine. Hope this helps. The only thing I don't like about the game is the saves. I like to save when I choose.

Thanks a lot, MaG. It's my ADS, I see you mentioned it in the WT that the active spot is higher than the Buddha. Now going back to the game. wave

Mini, go back to the door to the fire escape. Look for a door on your right (I think) and click to open it. There is clothing on a peg on the wall. Click on it and Oliver will change clothes. Then you can continue.

I don't know what's wrong. The last Buddha, I am in the basement stepping on the active tile again and again from different directions and -nothing. I checked the locked door upstairs. Is the secret room in the basement? Frustrating. rolleyes duh

Hi Springchicken, yes the secret room is in the basement. Look on the wall with the giant fan. When you activate the tile that fan opens up to reveal the secret room. I found this game to be just a little frustrating in that you have to wait so long for a scene to materialize. After stepping on the tile turn around to face the fan and wait.
