Thanks for this Mag. I would not get far without it. Seems a very difficult game to me.

Having difficulty. I am following the walkthrough as needed to progress and after Jack finds little girl at docks and takes her back to the Red Tulip and then game switches to Sean at docks with little girl trying to board a ship. I cannot get Harbour Master to let me board.
Is something missing from the walkthrough? I do not get the option of entering name of ship yet Sean says he has ID pass and knows name of ship.

I don't think I missed much laugh on the wt.
But some have progressed pass this point - so maybe something was not done.

Just wondered - did you check Sean's inventory and see the napkin with Sainte Marie written on it?

Mag, I have napkin with name Sainte Marie on it and ID papers in inventory but when I have shown ID papers to harbour Master and he asks for name of ship the dialog options do not allow entering of Sainte Marie. Any tips on how to enter ships name?
Cheers all

Thanks for welcome Marian.

I just replayed that part.

Open the inventory.
Select the napkin and see it in close up.
Use the eye icon (not the gears) on it. Sean will say he can only read Sainte Marie.
Then talk to the harbormaster again.
When asked about the ship to board in - there will be a Sainte Marie in the dialogue selection.

Also are you playing 2D or 3D?
If 2D - you won't see this. If 3D, you can see it in closeup. Hope that gets you through.

Thanks Mag was able to progress following your tips.
I was able to read and say ship's name in 3D mode.
I'm still grappling with difference between 2D and 3D.
3D seems better. How do you take an item in 3D mode so you can give it to someone?

Thanks again.

In 3D, right click an item to get the gear icon.
Then you can use it.
Glad you got through.
Better late than never - welcome

Is this game supposed to fit full screen? I have a 17 inch monitor, and am playing the demo. I have black bars down each side. Just wondering.

Hi Doreen,

I've checked out a few Let's Plays of the game on YouTube, and the black bars on either side appear to be the norm. You could try tweaking the display settings in Options to see if they make any difference, but perhaps that's just how the game is. smile

Doreen, when I start the game a small settings dialog pops up. If I select "Maintain 4:3 aspect ratio" the game plays in windowed non full screen mode with black band all around.
If I unselect "Maintain 4:3 aspect ratio" the game plays in full screen mode with no black bands.
I have a 22in 1680x1050 monitor.

If you have selected "Don't show this window again" on this dialog you have to click on
settings.exe in the game install folder to see this dialog and change settings.
