Did you mean oldbroad Mad?

Thanks for that tip because I think I thought of trying that but didn't or maybe where I tried it there was nothing to see.

Or are you in a wrong subject here?

Must be the birthday thing. lol

Definitely left AND right-click on everything; otherwise, you will find yourself stuck at several points throughout the game. wave

Sorry oldbroad. Yes. I was intending the "tip" for you woozy

[ But blaming the "birthday thing" sounds like a good excuse - even if a naughty one - for the lapse wink ]

I'm replaying the game now too.

Speaking of right-clicking, I just discovered something that I don't remember from previous plays. On the Save Game screen there are 24 save game slots, but you can only see 8 of them at any one time. If you click the up or down arrows it will scroll up or down one slot at a time, but if you right-click the arrows, it will scroll up or down a whole page (8 slots) at a time. Every time you open the Save Game screen, it always starts at the first 8 slots, so if you're using save games near the bottom of the 24 slots, this cane save a lot of clicks.

I don't know why I didn't re-read the game booklet. Then I would have known about the right clicking.

Uncle Reg - only 24 save slots??? I've already used 6 I think and I'm still at the beginning of the game.

Saves can be overwritten. I found I managed fine using and then gradually overwriting my saves thumbsup

I forgot to mention that this right-click feature also works on the Load Game screen.

I went back and read the manual (which is supplied as a PDF file in the GOG version), and while it amply covers the use of right-clicking during gameplay and in the inventory, there was no mention of using it in the Save Game and Load Game screens.

The game is divided into chapters (I think I remember that there were 6 chapters in all), so that once you advance to a new chapter, you can safely overwrite the saves for the previous chapter(s). That would effectively give you 24 saves for each chapter. I'm on Chapter 4 now, and the 24 slots have been adequate for me.

I'm no stranger to overwriting saves. I just didn't realize there were only 24 though.

I'm playing the GOG version but looked at the manual that came with my old disc. I never think to look for manuals with the downloads for some reason.

I'm off work tomorrow so, hopefully, progress will be made!

I don't either. I always used to look at the paper manuals back when we had physical releases.

I seldom look at them for Adventure games .... Unless I get stuck in some way .... And then of course I'm kicking myself for not having looked !! blush

I just discovered another place where right-click works. It's on the scroll arrows at the left or right of the inventory bar. If you right-click the left arrow it will move the inventory items so that the first inventory item is on the left side of the bar, and right-clicking the right arrow will move the items so that the last item is on the right side of the bar.
