I think there's some timing involved here; I don't mean that you are being timed but rather that you have to do things at just the right moment.

The walkthrough states:

Quote:
Laboratory (Labor): Exit the cell. The door on the left is locked. Turn to right and go forward past an archway on the right. Turn left on the corner and see a note on the left by the laboratory door. Read the note by Dr. Gygax. Enter the lab and Holmes warns about being careful or finding a way to neutralize the nurse, maybe put him to sleep. Press the Ctrl key to crouch down as seen by the silhouette at bottom left of screen.

Crouch forward to the first workbench on the right. At the bottom shelf, take 3 syringes: 12mm, 15mm and 18 mm in diameters. Crouch around and see a scale on the top of this work bench and a doll on the left by the wall. You can pick up the doll now or later. The male nurse is in the grilled chemical-drug room. Exit the room.

What happens when you try to start the game?

It sounds like we may have to move this thread over to technical support, but I will wait for your reply.

If you are certain that you have the correct syringes, then I would just keep on playing and see what happens.

I took a look at an online manual and it says this:

Quote:
To pick up an object, click on it using the left button. The object is now illuminated
and your character is holding it. Right click to return to the game: you will see the
selected object displayed on the top right of your screen. If you wish to return this
object to the inventory, click on it in the inventory again; the object is no longer illuminated
and your character has put the object away.


Can you pick up the new blowpipe while leaving the one you don't want in your inventory? I don't know how the controls work for this game, other than what I could find in the game manual.

Quote:
You have a 12, a 15 and an 18 mm in diameter syringes. You need a bit of space to place the syringe in the pipe. Take the 16 mm (or 40 pts) in diameter pipe.

Combine the sedative and the 15mm syringe. Then combine that 15mm syringe with sedative with the 16 mm pipe to get a blowpipe.


Have you added the sedative to the syringe? Are you sure that your syringe and pipe are the ones with the right measurements?

The walkthrough says:

Quote:
If you miss getting the sedative bottle, you can pick it up later in the game.


It sounds like you might be able to get it now, without having to reload a saved game. See if that's possible.

The walkthrough states:

Quote:
He talks about the Great one. The Great One returns! He is so loud that it alerts the male nurses. They are coming!

Escape: Immediately go to Gygax' office at the parallel corridor. Enter the office.


The word "immediately" makes me think that it is important to get through this sequence without taking the time to sightsee. laugh

Just follow the walkthrough step by step and you should be fine.

Well, you were playing Art of Murder: Cards of Destiny a while ago and ran into a big problem where you couldn't get out of the lab. So, I wouldn't recommend that one, unless you figured out a way to get past that problem. wave

I haven't played it so can't really offer an opinion. I seem to recall that there are a few places in the game that seem to give some players trouble. But if you have played it before, maybe that wouldn't be a problem.
