good morning Marian, i have not played Dreamfall in years so i forget. using the PC, how do i move the characters around and what's with this focus field? robert.


From MaG's walkthrough, here is how you move around in the game, as well as how other controls work:

Quote:
To move, use the directional arrows or the WASD keys. Press-hold the shift key to walk. Press-hold ctrl key to sneak. Inventory is accessed by the tab key. Press the m key for the mobile that has the e-mail, the dialogues and notes to self. For the focus band, the q key is for the next focus and e key is the previous focus. The pause key pauses the game. l key is for light attack, k key is for heavy attack and the space bar is for blocking. Right click to open the game focus band to check out things in a location. The character cannot move during this time. Right click again to toggle it off.


I recommend checking out the walkthrough, which can be found here. wave

As I recall, the keys can also be reassigned to suit the player. My own play was using the up arrow to move forward, and the mouse to pan around.

The focus field is used for people/objects at a distance. It isn't used all that frequently in the game.

Edit: Cross-posted with Marian's edit! grin

hi, i am trying to give Olivia the notebook so she can de-crypt it. before that, in MaGtRo's w/t. it says a message is received that Jana has cancelled future appointments. i didn't receive that message. could that be why i can't give Olivia the notebook? robert.

hi Marian, i am at the back of Victory Hotel. i have the lockpick from the Chinese merchant, looked at the padlock, can't speak to Liv on the mobile because i don't have the 'gears' icon, can't get the lockpick although i can see it in my inventory. how can i open the padlock? robert.

If you already have the lockpick then you won't need to call Liv again.

Are you standing close enough to the padlock in order to use the lockpick on it?

hi Mag, when i try to enter the Victory Hotel by using the axe on the boards, the axe is not active. the mobile IS! i sneaked past the dog and got the axe from the shed and checked the inventory for an axe which i have. by the time i climbed down the ladder, the axe was gone??? i can't break the boards with a MOBILE. what happened to the axe? i can't figure it out. robert.

Ah - you said that the "axe is not active" when you try to use it on the board. So you do have it inventory at that time.
Look close at the boards and see if you can then use the axe.
