Hi, Robert - it sounds to me, from looking at the walkthrough, that the truck automatically arrives when you have done everything you are supposed to, so perhaps you are missing an action that triggers the arrival of the truck.

Have you done all of the following?

Quote:
Trash collection: Check the sign and letters in the letterbox right of the gate. It states that the paper wastes are picked up first; followed by the biological wastes. The bulky stuff are picked up tomorrow.

See the paper waste picked up the truck. The security camera pans to the truck.

Examine the orange bio bin, blue paper waste bin and the bulky trash bin. Pick up the carpet on the bulky stuff bin.

Divert the security camera: Examine the wall right of gate. Use the carpet on wall and Sam will say to wait because of the security camera.

Examine the kerb stone in front of the gate.

Move the orange bin to the kerb stone - away from the wall that Sam checked.

Few minutes later; the trash collector truck arrives


You could also try restoring to an earlier save point and play this section of the game over - hopefully that won't be necessary. Good luck! wave

Robert,
If error is made, use the laptop's delete(back) key.

Hi Robert, it sounds like seeing the vampires happens automatically if you have done everything necessary to this point. Have you read the documents on the laptop describing the Ashanti Legend? Have you looked at the maps and checked the weather, music, and email?

I would check that your sensors are placed correctly by comparing them to the screenshots in MaG's walkthrough. Let us know if you still need help. wave

All the sensors should be placed, I believe.

Try watching this video walkthrough about sensor placement; maybe this will help:

If my memory serves me right, you can take them off again reposition them. Click on a sensor and see if it goes back to inventory.

Robert,

If you do it correctly, Sam will say she will sleep. If she doesn't say it something is still wrong or not done.

Robert,

- Study the map of the camp. Note the positions of the motion sensors.
- Place the sensors on those location.
- Check the label of those sensors to verify that they are the same as that in the walkthrough.
- be sure that you have fire in the fire pit.
- Read all what can be read in the laptop. luck

Hi Robert, this question was asked by another GameBoomer recently, and here is the answer that Rushes gave:

Quote:
From just outside the cave, go Left, then Middle, and you should see a chunk of resin to pick up. (Paraphrasing from MaG's walkthrough.)

The cleansing part before entering the cave is necessary. I think that is what you meant.

The lighting of the bowls in specific rooms in the cave means:
- go to those rooms with wall drawings.
- see a clay bowl hanging in those rooms.
- place resin in the bowl and light it.
- see light focused on wall drawings.

You're still okay to go.

hi Mag, i have entered the cave but instead of lighting the bowl, i lit the pot by mistake, therefore i don't have access to the resin and this game doesn't allow me to go back, i think. what do you suggest i do? robert.

It should allow you to go back.
- You can retrace your path.
- You can go back to a saved game also.

There are other resins in that maze - check the wt for places.

Can you be specific as to what bowl or what pot you lit?

Robert,

Do you have a saved game just before entering the cave?
It would be best if you go back before entering the cave and replay from there.

----------

I sent you a saved game with instructions. It is at start of the maze.
Good luck.

------------
Please check if your e-mail on record is up to date. The saved game I sent was returned to me.

Have you completely read the priest's diary?
Have you added all these ingredients: Star Lily, Goethe plant, alyssum, hyacinth and rose herb.
Add the pure alcohol, 5 ants and the bowl of syrup on the pot also.

It might be best if you go back to a saved game and replay that part.
You did this once before and got through - it might shake it lose again. smile

Robert,

Can you tell us if you saved games while playing?

If you did; you can load a saved game either main menu or in game menu.
- in main menu; once you open the game there is a load screen. Open that and select the saved game prior to collecting the ingredients.
- in in-game menu; open the inventory bar. At end of that bar click on gear icon and you will see the load/saved game feature. Again select the saved game prior to collecting ingredients.

luck

hi Mag, i load a game, do whatever is required according to the walkthrough, and then save. that's it. i do not save independently. should i? maybe that's why i can't go back to a saved game complete with all inventory items. where does it save other than in-game? robert.

Hi robert,

It's always advisable to save in a different save slot every time, rather than to continually overwrite one solitary save slot. That way, if you encounter a game glitch, or a problem such as the one you're currently having, you can go back to an earlier, separate save.

Most games have unlimited save slots. Those that don't at least usually have a decent number of slots, so that the player can advance a decent way into the game before needing to overwrite an early slot.

When you go to your game load screen, do you only see one save file there? Or are there multiple ones to choose from?

Don't start over yet -- let's see if anyone has any other suggestions for you. Double check MaG's walkthrough closely to see if you can spot anything you might have missed doing up to this point. If there are any actions that you are able to repeat -- such as reading documents or books, for example -- then redo them.

Robert,
I sent you a saved game March 18th. Do you still have that? Anyways - I sent it again with the same instructions.
It is at start of the cave. You already have a fire on the bowl.
Just do the cave maze then.
Now - be sure to do manual saves so that you can go back to a part if something goes wrong.
luck
