I'm finding an odd thing with the video clips. If I click on them or try to move to the laptop, there is no interaction like there is with the rest of the inventory items. But when I click on the laptop, they disappear from the inventory and appear on the laptop. Kind of strange... I have 6 of them so far. Got the glasses and did the oak tree puzzle and now I'm stuck for anything to do again! I'm sure I'll be back pleading for help.

Drac, when you have a SIM card, you only need to click on "Capture clips" on the laptop on the left when you are in the page to make the movie and it will be added with the others at the bottom. Hope this helps.


If anyone can tell me where to find Gus MP3, you will make my day. grin

Chief, I am going to replay later and if no one has told you yet, I will let you know where I found it. I want to say it was on the desk in the garage.

Also looking for iron-have checked everywhere and everything, reviewed notes. Players on Steam also seem to be stuck here. zombie

Thanks Chief and Upsydaisy! I will try them tonight. I read about the bug on steam that is being reported here as well. So, I will not be pushing play once I have entered the correct order. Unless I can't tell it is the right order, then I may be tempted to see if my game freezes by pushing play!

Hi Dianne-the fishing rod is
Click to reveal..
in the winnebago
for the stump puzzle look in
Click to reveal..
the book above the laptop, and make twig shapes using the guide, will make only 4
the iron (horseshoe) is proving a problem. I have completed all puzzles except collecting personal items to go on the stones. Even the walkthroughs on Youtube stop here. Will leave for a few days to see if anyone else has a solution or there is an patch. wave2

Edit: I have just read on Steam that Matt from Shadow Tors is working on a big update going from the preview release (which we have all been playing) to Version V1.01-not sure if this means starting a new game as Matt says events will happen at different times. Thanks Matt for your hard work and dedication rah

Thanks for the news about the update, Upsydaisy. joy

I believe I lost Gus MP3 from my inventory and it will help for that piece of iron everybody is looking for.

People on Steam are saying that they have fished in the pool,--I assume with the magnet fishing rod. I have cleaned off the sign, and seen the picture, but I am not getting a use tool icon at the pool.Is this a glitch, or am I missing something ?

Never mind, just read chief's post about where to find the fishing rod. Does anyone have a surefire way to get to the farmhouse? That's the place giving me the most trouble

Stay tuned...

Quote:
The Dark Path – Larger update coming.
Rather than continue smaller rolling updates, the decision was made to work on a bigger update to take the game from the revising v1 preview release to version 1.01 in a larger step. V1.01 will be addressing issues that some gamers have faced, and is shifting content around for a better game play experience. Events in act 3 will occur sooner in act 2; some events in act 2 are scattered into act 1. Many gamer requested addins, short cuts, improved interactios, along with technical, graphical and audio updates are included. Right now, I am testing to get as much of the update applied to those already playing, as those who are starting a new game will encounter by default. The update will be with you shortly.

Many Thanks, Matt

Doreen, here is a way to get to the farm:

from looking at the cave (Quoit) and the bikes, turn right. Forward 2x.

At the 2 signs, turn right and forward 1x. Then forward on the path you see in front.

At the step, turn left and forward and then follow the yellow cable down to the tractor.

Go right at the tractor and follow the yellow cable again.

(Maybe a player can come up with an easier way to get there.)


As for the fishing rod, you will pick up a real one. I do not remember where, maybe at the farm????


Good luck. luck

Thank you for the directions Chief. Now I can't get into the farmhouse because you know who is there. I have been sent back to the wishing stones 3 times now.How do I get in?

Doreen and Drac, you need to finish that film with the SIMS card on the laptop.

Chief wave


EDIT: Doreen, the fishing rod is in the winnebago in the moor where the radio station is.

You can get there when you complete the map at the farm.

Are you talking about

a different MP3 from the one in the fusebox on the radio tower?
Anyway, that's where I found one. I still don't know what to do with it though.

Thanks, 8dognight. It is the one in the fuse box. Now I remember.

It's not in my Inventory nor the tool to open the fusebox. One problem to be settle.

The MP3, the wooden effigies, Olly's glasses, Mia's school ID and comb will be useful
at the wish circle (if this is the proper name for it) in the woods.

Have fun with your game.

2 things---did the new patch automatically install in the game or do I have to download it manually? Also, I think I am going to have to restart the game, as the candle puzzle in the café is doing nothing. I try to pick up the matches--no go, and then I try just clicking on the candles and nothing happens. Without having done this puzzle, I will be unable to enter the farmhouse. I have played over nine hours of this game and really do not want to have to start over.

Chief, my screwdriver had disappeared, too; however, I turned the screws with either my fingers or the navigational arrow. In short, the box opened without a tool from inventory.

Finally got mine too... not sure if I'll start over or not. Might be sure I've got everything first. And I LIKE the sound effects now! I didn't have any before. But I also wouldn't mind starting over if I have to... just an excellent game.
