You should ask first about Brenda and about his past.

BTW - did you get the alarm keys already?

Is that no - you don't have the alarm keys yet or no - you have not asked him about Brenda?

You should have gotten the alarm key by the trunk earlier in the game and have given it to Nancy via the package drop. That is if you're following the GB walkthrough.

Then you can ask Alexei about it.

You might be missing getting or picking up the key (that I asked about).
You might be missing giving the alarm key to Nancy.
Or you might be missing some other steps before this - check the walkthrough or your To Do list.

I can't even try to guess your problem since you don't answer my questions so that I can cross off possibilities.

Better finish the To Do - "take a good look around antique shop" first and then go from there.

mag. the answer to your question re. alarm key is no. i thought this was obvious as i can't get Alexei to even talk about the alarm key in his dialogue. that's why i am asking you. meantime, i will search the antique shop for ... i don 't know what. thanks, robert.

No - you didn't reply about the key nor is it obvious to me.

It would be best if you follow A walkthrough and then you can pinpoint what you missed.

Then get Alexei out of the way and pick the key up beside the antique store's trunk and proceed from there.

If you followed the GB walkthrough - you should have picked up the key beside the trunk at the Antique store.

Your question at above post is that you can't get the dialogue about the alarm key.
That is why I asked if you have the alarm key already?
If you have it - the dialogue will occur; if you don't have the key - then no dialogue because the characters don't know about it.


From the walkthrough; under Check accelerant sample (this is when you did the number punch puzzle):

Trunk: Check the trunk at the corner left of the counter at the back of the room. Alexei is here and we can't work on the trunk.

Look close at trunk and pick up the alarm keys on the floor right of the trunk. Exit the shop.

mag. yes, i already picked up the alarm keys. that doesn't explain why Alexei doesn't talk about it later on when i had my problem at the fingerprint business. should i go back to picking up the alarm keys and replay? if yes, what should i look out for to ensure i don't run into the same problem again. robert.

Does this mean that you just now picked up the key?

If so - then follow the walkthrough and give the alarm key to Nancy at the station.
Then continue with the steps in the walkthrough.

There are several ways you can go from here:
1. Give the key to Nancy if you haven't yet.
2. Continue on with the game and then come back later and try to talk to Alexei about the alarm key.
3. Go back to an earlier saved game and replay from there following someone's walkthrough.
