I had that problem with the candle puzzle too, dorish. But the next time I started the game, it worked. But I've finished the movie and I still can't get into the farmhouse. Need to go back and see what I've missed.

Well, I bit the bullet and started over--got to do the candle thing, and then the game froze. I will have to check, but I don't think I saved right before it . I am getting SO frustrated.

8dognight, thanks for the hint but it did not work.

With the latest update, I decided to start a new game.

People on the Steam board are complaining about being beta testers who had to pay. Frankly I would have paid double to get the game when we did and not have to wait, so no complaints here even if I do end up having to start over.

I do, however, have a bit of a quandary. I did the cafe candle puzzle without a problem and I have not experienced any game breaking glitches with either version unless the following is one: a few minutes ago when I was back in the garage for something else, I checked the tool bench, found that the screwdriver was back, and picked it up.

If I don't restart, will I be able to finish given that some actions in the 1.01 version now come earlier in the game? Mia is still in the farmhouse so I don't have a crucial sim card.

I have just uninstalled the game and am reinstalling it in the hope that I can get past that candle glitch. I tried to do it several times and the game froze so I had to reboot my computer--I now have a MAJOR headache --no doubt caused by stress LOL ! I want to delete all my save games. Can anyone tell me where they are ?

Big sigh of relief and October Fool on me. Just remember Chris Jones has made several so there are precedents from distinguished developers.

My only disappointment thus far with Barrow Hill: The Dark Path is
Click to reveal..
that I suspect Winser will not be wagging way his back from the dead to lick Emily's face unless as prelude to biting face. Winser's disappearance was the only thing I didn't like about the original Barrow Hill. I know that if a dog makes an appearance in a horror movie, there is a genre based obligation to kill the dog--rather like the foreshadowing convention of using in the third act a gun that was lying around in the first--so I was expecting the trope even while cringing. I intend to pretend the sly effigy pattern is for Winser.

I have all 8 of the video clips plus one undiscovered one that showed up when I clicked on Make Movie. I left it as the last one, so maybe that's the problem. But I still can't get into the farmhouse!

Doreen, if you have Win 10, look in local disc (C:), User, X (or possibly another name),
registered games, The Dark Path: open this link.

I'm not sure if you need access to all your foulders to do this.


Drac, I restarted the game and I can't get into the farmhouse and I have done many more things and still can't get in there.

And I'm mad. mad

But it is still a good game.

I just saw a post at Steam that says there is now another step to get into the farmhouse with the update. I wish I could figure out what it is!

I'm trying to save Ollie. I'm in the room next to the garage and I have the two-letter four-digit code.

But the phone won't accept the code. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Drac, did you also enter 475 when asked by the man on the phone?

I now know how to get in the farmhouse: go there and follow back the yellow wire on the ground.

Click to reveal..
When you reach a post with 2 walking people and a picnic table on it and an arrow, just look on the left of that to find a beacon machine. Work with it to find a live feed for the camera video in the farm.


See if this works. I'm not sure if you have to work the wishing stone of Ollie and Gus with their proper items before the access to the Farm.

The guy on the phone never asks me anything. I assume I press the 2 twice to get B and the 4 twice to get H?

I'll look for that beacon!

Probably beacause you've run into a bug. This game should not been published. They let the buyers do the beta testing.

I've bought it myself, uninstalled it and will not reinstall it in a couple of weeks. Perhaps the bugs are ironed by then, or perhaps not.

I'm still simply loving this game... nicely creepy and now that I have sound effects, it's ever creepier. But... is it just me or is that the most annoying ring tone you have ever heard!!! And now I have this ghastly ring tone playing over and over in my head... aacckkk!

In playiong the latest update last night, I found the candle puzzle locked the first time I tried it. I reloaded the game, went off and did some other game tasks and puzzles then went back to the candle puzzle. This time it worked and did not lock. I was able to get what I need there and move out of the puzzle screen. Hope this helps.

Help! I am in the newest upgrade, the 1.01, and still can't get past the witch or see anything happen after I get all the clips from SIM cards in order and compile and play the vid. . I understand that the phone is supposed to right about now. I don't know how to hide spoilers here so will not say anymore till I find out what to move the game but I think I have most or all of the items I can get in the woods and station and Quoit. I restarted the game after the upgrade, btw. And like it a lot, problems or not.

Chief,

I got the "feed found" message on the transmitter/beacon machine, but I have only seen Gus when he peeked though the fence at enchanted Ollie. I think I have to find Gus and free him but I can't find him again. Any ideas on what I might have missed? I did get Ollie freed.
Thanks.
