This is good news, as long as it isn't click and hold, as Jenny said. I actually don't mind direct control and sometimes even prefer it, which is something I never would have thought I'd say 20 years ago. However, I really don't like camera relative controls, so a change to point and click would definitely be preferable in this case.

I'm still waiting for the price to come down significantly before purchasing the game. Parts of it look nice enough from what I've seen in YouTube videos, but it's nowhere near the level of the first two games.

They Have Changed the controls Greyfuss. You can now go forward with the mouse. When you click ahead it appears to be manholes that form until Kate gets there. The Curser is a large Golden Pointed item which is much easier to see then that thin walled circle of before. When I picked up one item I ended up with three of them (eliminating one other pick up from before). These are the differences so far. Stairs can still be problematic, but not as bad at all so far.

The Game does not save upon Quitting the game. They are most often at specific points. That is why finding a save for someone where they lost the game after a certain point may prove to be difficult.

Cheers,

Mr. Bill

So is it actually point-and-click and not click-and-hold until Kate gets there?

What are the "manholes" supposed to indicate?
Are you supposed to interact with them?
Do they indicate where to click to have Kate take that path?

I guess it's hard to describe. If anyone finds a YouTube video showing the "manholes" let us know.

Just imagine clicking on the road a manhole pops up and rolls around in position. It surprised me.

I guess they do that so you know where she is going. It's after the click.

Cheers,

Bill

Been playing the new point and click version this evening. It's intuitive and a lot easier than before if you are playing on a PC.

Still a big issue about only one save. Probably makes sense to use a back-up from time time but microids has a lot that you can chose from to restart if you have a crash or it stops working properly at any point (as happened with me).

Syberia 3 is a lot better than the previous Syberia games. I'm loving it. Point and click has just made it even better.

It's big though so you'll need lots of disk space!

Mr. Bill talked about the Microids saves in his post in ***Glitches***
He gave a link to ***here*** where it says

The Savegames are stored in the following folder :
C: \ Users \ * Windows profile * \ AppData \ LocalLow \ Microids \ Syberia3

<!> Important : Make a copy of your current savegames, the name of the file should start with : 1 - UI_Loader ....

Copy the savegames provided in this folder.
Use the LOAD menu from the main game menu.

However, we must inform you of certain important points :

-The folder where your Savegames are stored is a hidden folder of Windows, you will not see it if the parameter of hidden files and folders is not activated on your PC, we invite you to consult Windows helpdesks / manuals.
-The Savegames will not activate the Trophies, it will be necessary to load a previous savegame when you have solved your problem to go back the steps concerned and have your Trophies.
-We can not be held responsible for a possible problem caused by a mishandling of your part.

Other backups will soon be added.

I'm in the process of checking everyone of the saves and determining where they open up so that people can get the save location they need to pick up from where they left off before their game crashed. None of them are labeled on Microids website.

The Save for you Caz is number 26 in the SaveSyberia3.zip (20 saves numbered from 11 to 30).

I've got about 9 more to identify where they go.

Cheers,

Bill

smile It appears that Mr. Bill (Hi, Bill) has bailed me out again. Since the game is now point & click, and there some saves available, I will probably need to buy it. I liked the other two well enough to spend the forty bucks.

I got that in the integrity check. I have still managed to recover by loading one of microid's save files.

Caz,

The Game is your problem, not the saves. You need to uninstall it and then reinstall it. Do you have someone that can help you? If no ask for help on steam. They supplied the game. They should help you.

Take care my friend,

Bill

Not sure he has to do that if it's a message from the file integrity checker.

I got that message but was able to get going again using a microid's save (as you know).

Maybe academic anyway as moving to 2.0 involves a lot of down-loading and file updates wink

Hi teassoc,

You may be right. How did you get the save to load? Caz needs to see if he can start a new game that has hot spots and he is able to react to things normally in this new game.

So far I can get all of the Microid saves to load normally by clicking Continue. I have eight more to load and determine where they are in the game.

Cheers,

Bill
