Sherlock gave me the excuse to quit playing Mystery of the Mummy as he up and died and the game said to start at the beginning. I'm not sure if that meant the beginning of the game, or the level I was on (3) or the puzzle, whatever it was! So, not having a clue as to which it was, I was happy enough to give up.

JohnBoy HUNNY Babe

I can't get used to no Hand Icon..Unless you are on top..Of an object..Also I keep Bumping into walls...Cause you have to Hold down & left click
mouse to walk...And if you walk into a chair you have to move around to get un stuck..And besides that when you talk to people...You have to walk real close to talk to them...The camera panning is all over the place.... woozy wave

PS: I have played many a Game ...But this Interface is too Confusing for me...

I tried the game twice and just can't play it because of the motion sickness and headaches. I have tried to play two so far that I could not. Scratches and now this one. I guess I need to stick with third person, no panning, right? The only thing I don't understand is that I loved secrets of Da Vinci and was able to play that game with no problem. I have to figure this all out before I buy anymore games, that is for sure!

Hi smile

Really vastly different opinions on this game woozy

I'm, personally, not having any of the problems with actual navigation that some people seem to be experiencing.
Nor any difficulties with the inventory.

In fact I am enjoying the game very much thumbsup

So I am sad to hear that some people have had to give up on it frown

Cheers.

Joy, will the game let you adjust your mouse speed? That just might do the trick for you.

John Boy,
It will and it didn't do the trick. I have tried everything...there is just too much panning. If I have to have my eyes move around that much I get a headache. I tried it twice, now I am done with it. I really liked SH silver earring and was looking forward to this game. I just need to be more careful with my selections, really read all I can on it before I decide if I will be able to tolerate the game. I am going to keep away from anything that says 360 degrees panning. I also didn't like using the keyboard, I seemed to miss all the spots I should be looking at for items. If something is that much work, it won't be much fun. Thanks for you suggestion though. I really appreciate it.

Joy

The Awakened has a real time 3D interface. It's not merely a game with 360 degree panning. As you move through the game, your computer generates the images you see onscreen in real time. If games like Aura, the Atlantis games, and Destination: Treasure Island don't bother you, don't assume all games with 360 degree panning will bother you.

The problem with finding inventory in real time 3D games can be a lot worse than in 2D 360 degree games (where you're actually panning around a prerendered image which has boundaries that extend beyond the edges of your monitor).

Games like BS3 and BS4 had a way of making inventory "twinkle" so it would attract your attention. Did you not notice anything like that in The Awakened?

No, I didn't notice anything like that in the game. I am still confused as to why Scratches and Awakened bothered me so much and Da Vinci didn't bother me at all. I need to figure that out for future games purchases. I haven't played any of the games you mentioned. I just started about a year ago so I am pretty green when it comes to explaining or even knowing what to look for.
