This is a known bug. I have read about this solution on other forums over the years. The solution is: prior to attempting this part, go into game options and mute the midi sound option. Play through this part, and then you can go back into the sound options and use the midi again after that.

I agree it's a weird one. Fortunately I have seen it mentioned enough times over the years that I knew what you were describing and remembered that there was a solution.

I really do not know. I looked at all three walkthroughs here on GameBoomers and I see that a bible gets picked up earlier in the game, which would explain why you already have one in your inventory. And another walkthrough I looked at doesn't even mention a bible on the couch in this part of the game, which puzzles me. I would suggest taking a look at a video walkthrough or just see if you can keep on going the way that you are. And as always, save your game regularly.

I am not sure where you are. Is this where you are?

Quote:
Gideon's Hallway

Follow the hallway, then go left. Follow it until you come to another door. Look at it, and the access panel. Enter the code by the ball colors. Open the door and go in.


If this is where you are, it says to enter the code by the ball colors. Is that what you are doing?

I really don't know. Just remember to save your game at regular intervals.

I put spoiler tags around your comment, deleterman, because people reading that who haven't played the game might not appreciate learning that information.

Tesla Effect pretty much picks up where Overseer left off. I think at the time Overseer came out they thought there would be another Tex Murphy game pretty soon after that, and as it turns out there was a wait of about 15 years.

Oldbroad, you really ought to give a Tex Murphy game a try - I would start with either Under a Killing Moon or Pandora Directive. And of course don't forget about Gabriel Knight 2. And I am sorry that you had to read about the ending of Overseer, but fortunately knowing that would not ruin the game.

I would have looked under the spoiler tag anyway as I was curious why deleterman didn't like the ending. By the time I ever get around to playing the game, I'll forget anyway. I did note the info you put about the glitch though I may forget I noted it, even though I made a note that I noted it, if that makes sense. The games sound very hard though with all the timed sequences, of which I'm not overly fond of.

I am not a fan of timed sequences but these aren't too bad as long as you remember to save your game at regular intervals. I guess I enjoy the rest of these games so much that I find myself more tolerant of them than I would be otherwise.

The Gabriel Knight games are a set of 3 adventure games that were made in the 1990s. The first game, Sins of the Fathers, also had a remake a few years ago and you can find it on GOG here. The original game can be found here.

The second game is the one I mentioned above, which is Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within and I believe to be one of the five greatest adventure games ever made; it can be found on GOG here.

The third game in the series can be found here.
