Go back to your cell and use the phone. Call Ned or George to ask help finding the key. Transfer the case.

George or Ned:

Follow Detective Ryan's trail: Exit the area and be at map. Go to the places Detective Ryan visited.

Pancake City is below the Riverfront Park at bottom of the map. Mabel Rose's is close to top left of the map.

The Antiques Shop is at middle of the map above the river.

Sorry for the delay. Got too busy.

As I posted above - eavesdrop and learn than Ryan thinks that he lost the key at Pancake City.
So go to Pancake City as mentioned above.
Each place will tell you where to go next.

No, Robert.

Before you can get an accelerant sample - you have to have a container to place it on.

The antique shop is just across from the van.

You can continue on the walkthrough from here.

hi Mag. i wonder if you can help? after entering the antiques store and to solve the numbers puzzle, before taking the free glass vial which i inadvertently thought was the prize for winning the numbers puzzle, i went into windowed mode to aid speed things up, and now i can't get back. the alibi in ashes icon for 'options' is not available now. HELP please, robert.

Can you see the gear icon at bottom of screen?
Try ESC key and see if another menu appears.

If not - close the program; then open it again and see if the main menu has the gear icon or options. luck

I'm not sure if I should tell you this. lol

- Open C drive; open Users folder, open your computer's name folder, open My Documents folder.
- Open Alibi in Ashes folder.
- Open "Alibi" text paper with a gear icon.
- Check what is written on the second paragraph.
It should be - WindowMode=2

If it is not - change it to WindowMode=2. You might just need to change the number
Then be sure to SAVE the text file.

much appreciated Mag for the idea. if i uninstall/reinstall the game and start from scratch again, will that serve the same purpose? your alternate solution seems a wee tad complicated to me although i will try it - duffer that i am! robert.

Don't try it if you are nervous. Please.

You can just uninstall and install again. See if that helps.

Mag. i have tried 5 or 6 times, 9 minutes plus each attempt, but the timer is supposed to allow me to win the numbers punch game but it doesn't. i'm running out of patience. robert. i gave it 1 more shot - i won!

Edit Reason: one more attempt
