I got the scissors and broke them several times in trying to get the floor board up in Room E1 present time. The MaGtRo walk through (yeah, I use walk throughs being new to all this)says to remove floor board with a click-hold-move right and left movement. I do that but all that happens is that I get a sound effect of the board sorta moving. If I click scissors again, they break, again. So, do I keep moving the scissors back and forth until something happens before I try the board, keep trying the board even if nothing happens with the scissors first or what.
This part of the game is a bit glitchy on my XP Pro laptop as the cursor sometimes goes to the left of the screen and gets stuck there; so far I have been able to reactivate it with patience.
The other walk through I have has even less info than the as-always good MaGtRo one.
We'll outgrow the walk-throughs, yeah, we really will.
