VERY IMPORTANT

Do a save here.

There is a known bug in this game at this point. If you proceed to enter the 6 numbers from the wall onto the piano keys; after hitting the last note, the game will freeze and require a cold boot.

There is one solution that does work most of the time to overcome this problem. On hitting the last note, immediately after, hit the Esc (Escape) key on your keyboard. The secret coded letter will go into your inventory. This should solve the problem and enable you to complete the game.

SilverPlay, the game developer, just sent me the following link to a patch that they have just released. This may very well work for you but it would not work for me. I think my problem with the patch is that the game is controlled through Zodiac and not from a direct download. The patch could not be installed into the specific game folder as it could not find my game folder. Doing it manually did not work either.

Walkthrough continued...

Approach the piano. When the gears symbol appears, left click the mouse or hit the Enter key on your keyboard to start the puzzle. You will see 12 keys on the piano, the two end keys are superfluous (not needed) The keys are mentally numbered from left to right as 1 to 10.

Puzzle Solution

The numbers you found on the wall in the cellar are the numbers you have to enter on the piano keys in that order. When the key 1 is on the left hand side of the piano and key 10 is on the right hand side of the piano.

The correct order for the keys is:        7-1-3-7-10-4

Don’t forget to hit the Esc key on your keyboard immediately after hitting key 4. Check in your inventory to see if the letter in code has been added.

Go back and talk to the coachman. Use the letter in code from inventory on the coachman. Talk to him and you decide to go in alone to talk to Max inside the pharmacy.

Talk to Max. Select: “Tell me. Max, why did you get rid of Splitsy?”
