I am at the point where I have to get three vials of medicine to heal the wounded "Beast." I'm in the process of collecting them, and already have the first one. The second one is in the fire house medicine cabinet, and features a small red human model that must be reassembled. You have to add back the arms and legs. All four parts are very easy to spot. I put one arm on, but none of the other pieces will reattach to figure. I've tried them all, tried grasping them with the mouse at different points and attaching them to the figure at different points, but none will "stick." They just bounce back to the HOG scene. Nothing in the Strategy Guide about this; nothing on line about this. Any ideas?

Hi Reenie,

I found this on the BF forum - maybe this is the same thing you are trying to assemble?

I really don't know what else to suggest. Hopefully someone else will have an idea. wave

That is exactly it! I did not think to look at the game's site for answers to such problems. Thanks.

Unfortunately, I did try clicking on various parts of each appendage and various locations on the little body itself, suspecting there was a "picky" aspect to it. After a 15-minute clickfest, I was no further along. But if this is my only option, I guess I'll pour myself a shooter of tequila and slog through it.

I solved it, in case anyone else has this problem. It is a non-standard mouse thing, which is why it doesn't appear to work at first. Usually in these games, you click on a object then click the pointer of the mouse on where the object should go. NOT in this case. It is irrelevant where your mouse clicks occur, per se. What matters is the shape of the object itself and making its screen outline match the screen outline of the destination point.

To make the reassembly of the little figure work, click anywhere on an arm or leg, to pick it up, and then notice where the end of the arm/leg is in relation to the joint on the body where you want to put it. THAT is what matters. Basically, visually line up on screen the two parts of the "joint" and click, regardless of where your mouse might be on the screen. After I figured this out, I was through it all in seconds. smile
