I finally got a look at the sketch book that Hobbs has, but i can't turn the pages to get anywhere. Glitch or what?

I can't turn the pages either and there's no blue arrow to back out of that screen.

Melia,

I finally got it. You don't turn the pages like you do in every other game that's ever been made anytime, anywhere.
You put your cursor in the center of the previous, blank page and turn them backwards from there.
Sheesh!
And there still isn't any way to back out of that screen.

Great.
I clicked on Adam in the flower shop and the game stopped working.
It happened once, I went to GOG to see if anyone had the same problem and saw an update in my account.
I downloaded the update and started the game again in the flower shop.
The game stopped working again.
Has that happened to you, Melia?

Gil.

Oh, fui. Sorry again for the stacking. I can't delete the post.

Looks like you're all doing well here.
I can procrastinate and play the game later then.

Thanks, Gil.

Click on the left-hand page when the gears appear
until you see the Ouroboros on the right-hand
page then click on it and George makes a comment.

The exit arrow will appear.

You're right, stevefox, but until you manage to work out that you have to click in a totally unexpected place to turn the pages, you can't get off that screen.
I suppose that goes to show that you shouldn't take anything for granted, but who turns the pages of a book by putting a finger in the middle of a page and not on the edge?

Have you had the game stop working?
I just tried it twice more.
The minute the inventory screen shows up for you to question Adam, a small blue circle appears and the game crashes.
I doubt taking this to Glitches will help.
I'll just forget about it until Revolution sorts out the bugs.

Gil.

Thanks all. I ended up going to the Revolution website. Another had had that problem, and you're right, traveler, I just had to click on the middle of the blank page. Weird. And I had lots of problems with the game crashing. Seems many others have had that problem, too. I just learned to save a lot. I just finished the game today. Now comes the waiting.

What do you think of the game so far? Many on the forum thought it was slow moving and not very good in the story line. For all that "Sleeping Dragon" irritated the heck out of me with the timed sequences and action spots, I find I liked it a lot better than this latest installment in the series. It was my favorite but I hate playing the action scenes so will not go back to it for a while.

Any discussions not directly related to Hints questions should be posted at our Discussions forum. You'll be likely to get a wider response there from others currently playing the game. Plus it helps keep this thread clear for other hints questions and responses. grin thanks
