Hi.

I posted this request on the "Glitches" board a few days ago but haven't received any replies, so I'm wondering if I might have better luck here - where saved games are often found !! smile

I'm trying the GOG version of GK1 but can't get past the zombies in Day 9 rolleyes

[I do already have a saved game for this point from a "Non GOG" version - but of course it isn't compatible. And I did manage to slow the GOG game down sufficiently to get past the notorious "beignet vendor" scene at the Police Station - however that tactic isn't working for me at the Snake Mound.]

So, could anyone please oblige with a "GOG" save ?? [I would need the "GKSG.CAT" file too.]

I'm holding my breath and my fingers are crossed !! help

Cheers.

Hi mbday630 smile

Thank you very much indeed for the save you sent and I can't wait to try it !!

However I need another file from you to enable the save to work :-

Your "GKSG.CAT" file. [Which will be with the save games in your GK folder.]

Are you able to send me that too, please ??

Thanks again.

Cheers.

Okay. I'll send it right now. Let me know if it works. This is one of my most favorite games. (btw, if you still want to try it on your own, if you just wait a few seconds after you put in the rod, and just as the zombie stands up and then just hightail it into the room with the vines and put the operate verb on the vines, that will get you past it)

Thank you again, mbday630 !!!! dance

Oh, believe me, I have tried many, many times to to escape the zombies but for some reason, since I arrived at the Snake Mound, the controls have been very unresponsive and badly sluggish - and it has been difficult to even reach the room with the vine, let alone grab the vine and swing out on it hardwall

Anyway, I am most grateful you are trying to help and as soon as I have the CAT file from you, I'll try the game again and let you know if the save works thumbsup

Cheers.

Hi again smile

Well I got that second file from you, thank you, but although I can now see your saves when I launch the game, I can't use them frown

If I try to, I get the message ....
"That game was saved under a different game or interpreter version. It cannot be restored." .....
Which I don't understand at all, if your game is the same GOG version as mine.

So I don't know what I can do, now duh

But, thank you very much for trying to help. I appreciate it very much !!

Cheers.

Mad yes

EDIT :
Sorry, Mods, I should have edited my previous post, not posted again blush

I got past that part using the saved game that you sent me. Your game saves worked great on my computer, so, can't figure out why my saves wouldn't work. but, anyway, I got past that part and hopefully now you can move on. Let me know if it works.

Hi Mad, on Al Lowe's website (former game designer for Sierra) I read that if you get that particular error message you described, when trying to use those saved games, that they will never work, maybe because that part of the game was patched using a different interpreter. Maybe try to get a saved game from a slightly different place in the game?

Wow !!!! You did it !!!! The save you sent back to me works fine and I'm able to get on with the game again now.
I am SO grateful to you !!!!
Thank you. Thank you. I just hope I'll be able to help you out in return some time yes

praise praise praise

Marian

I know from past experience how "picky" Sierra games can be about saves from other sources, having sent them to people myself in the past and then they haven't been useable.
But thank you for finding that info for me. I would never thought of going to Al Lowe's website. [ Much as I do admire him wink ]
