I have consulted MaG's walkthrough....can't figure out what I am missing??I think that I should be heading back to the St. Edmund's quad to finish off the "plant in the house" for a "vote" and a "trap" later on. Any nudges would be appreciated. Thank you!

Some of the gamers miss reading a document or clicking on something.

Check which location is not grayed out. Check in that place. luck

I am at 128/141% of "There's always a plant in the house." Everything else is complete. My two non-gray choices are St. Edmund's and Dread Hill House. headscratch

Check the file cabinet at Main lab at Dread Hill and read everything there.

Talk to David or Mrs. Dalton.

I cannot pinpoint what you missed. One way is to replay that subchapter.
Or you can use saved games by lily here.

There is no specificity for control of sub-chapters, correct? Just load an earlier save, or do the walkthrough from the chapt. beginning...to find the missing trigger, yes?
That's kinda what I thought, and what I have been doing, less specifically than with your walkthrough. I will try that. Any other ideas are welcome. blush


Can anyone tell me where the spots are for the gymnasium traps are? I think I am missing one.

Now that you moved to Chapter 4 - There are only 2 places to place the traps at the gym: main door and locker door.

Gaily...I am having the exact problem you had with chapter 4. I am at 97% and replayed the whole chapter but still the Lamb's Club isn't waiting on the lawn...did you realize what you might have missed when you replayed? Any help would be appreciated...or did you replay the whole game up and through chapter 4?

Thanks and boy do I feel frustrated!!!

Happy Gamer

Bobbi,

If you're sure that you have finished Chapter 3, save your game and then close it.
Then restart the game again and see if Chapter 3 is now seen in the Progress icon at top left.

I don't think you need to replay.

If you still can't find it - lily has saved games here. luck

I also can't get the lambs back in the quad.
Every where is gray except Dread House and St Edmunes. I've checked both walkthro's and seem to have done every thing but in a different order. Would that make a difference? The traps are placed and I've looked using the highlight button at each room. Any ideas? insane
OK I've found the trigger. I looked at the pool a second time had another word with the poolman and BINGO happydance

I'm stuck here now, at 97%.

After carefully reading the details of all the walkthroughs, what I think happened is this:

I was originally snooping in Helena's room, and happened to look at the box under the bed before looking at either the computer or the desk drawer.

Looking at the box triggered Helena to enter, and now that she is there, I can't look in the drawer.

By points are 128 instead of 131, and the final scene won't occur.

Is there some way to get Helena out of her room now that she is there? I assume I must replay the chapter.

Hi Tally Ho, I'm not sure what you can or can't do here, but until someone comes along who knows better, there are some saved games here for Chapter 4, which might prove to be useful. wave

Hi TallyHo,

Check the map to see which location is still not grayed out. That means there are still things to do in that location.
Also - check which sub chapter is not done at the Progress (top left of screen) and concentrate there.

As for Helena's box under the bed - you can finish that in another chapter. So that might not be it that's holding you back. luck

Thanks Marian and MaG -

Everything is 100% except for "...Plant in the House"
And the only map location not grayed out is St. Edmund's. So that makes sense. What I cannot find is anything I had not done except what I said above.

So - I will go to a saved game before looking in Helena's room. Thanks for trying to help.

____ Later - - -

I got it. Some time earlier,I thought I had been finished with the pool guy because when I went to talk with him a final time, I got the "look" icon, not the "talk" icon. In fact, the "Look" icon showed when the cursor was on the upper part of his body, but it was meant for the pool. Following that, I had the scene in the lab with David. Some time later I actually did get the last conversation in with the pool guy.

What I never knew was that the final talk with the pool guy is the trigger for the final question with David, regarding the incidents on campus. Doing those things out of sequence created an "invisible" trap, believing I had finished the conversation with David, when in fact the last question wasn't enabled until after the pool scene was at 100%. I hope this information helps someone else someday. laugh

Thanks Marian. I had also forgotten about that Forum. It seems chapter four is fraught with peril.
