Hi all !

I don't think this will be a surprise to anyone, but can anyone get me out of the forest chase mini game in Prey Tell? I am getting too old to play this kind of ......., well you can guess what ! If this is where we have gotten to with Sherlock and Frogwares, this is my last game from them.

I wish there was a skip for this. We can't even go on to the next mystery and come back here later ! Terrible !! smirk

Saved Game after this ??? Detail help ?? Internet walkthroughs nice but they can't move Sherlock for me ! haha

I'll stop here. Lost for words. thumbsdown

I'm sorry to have to tell you this, but the Frogwares support site used to have saved games for Devil's Daughter including for this forest sequence, and they now seem to have been removed from the website. frown

Here are a couple tips from other players here, though:

Quote
Run as much as possible, and when the line shows up on screen that the shot is about to hit Holmes, dodge quickly to either side and the bullet will miss... this puts much more distance between you and the shooter. If you hide behind cover, the shooter starts closing distance quickly. Wait until your breathing is getting really heavy and the stamina bar is almost drained..THEN duck into cover and wait for his stamina to recharge. This way, you start off running with the shooter much further away from you. If you wait in cover all the time, he keeps closing the distance down to nothing. It works at first, for a few times, but then he's just too close near the end of the run to get away. Just try to run as much as possible


Quote
When I played the game, I ran from side to side rather than in a straightish line and only stopped when I needed to,it took me awhile but I got there in the end, as Marian said check Youtube for hints on how to do it.

Thank you Marian

It's one of those things where I know what to do but the execution and coordination wane as we get older. I'll keep trying and remove any breakables from my desk. smashpc

It's a shame that they don't offer the saved games anymore. A lot of people here needed them!

Good luck sureshot. Sometimes I just try here and there with stuff like that and one time it will just happen to work.

Hi All

I hated to give up.... so I pulled up a Video Walkthrough on my second monitor and started the video walkthrough then matched the movements step for step. It took 3 tries but when I finally reached the swamp, I was able to get through it by following the screens on the second monitor which I Paused so the gold colored path would always be visible. idea

It was either this, or get one of my grandkids over who like playing these "console type" games. whistle

Lesson learned ?? No more Frogwares games - they had a good thing going up until now.... In my humble opinion. shame

Regards and Thank you !!

Whew! Glad you were able to get past that part. Most of us here would prefer it if Frogwares got rid of these action scenes in future, or at least allow you to skip them. wave

I know that it's too late for this particular thread, but if anyone else is needing a saved game for AFTER Epping Forest, I still have one saved that I downloaded from Frogware's site years ago. If you need it, I'm happy to share. Just send me a private message with your email and I'll send it off.

Fair warning, though. You're going to miss quite a few clues and deductions, but you'll get through the forest and be able to proceed to the next case.

Rayette was logged into GameBoomers today and I am beginning to wonder if she is not recognizing the fact that she has a private message, since you have not heard from her. I will see if I can contact her for you, Mad.

She wrote back to me on Friday and said that she would be sending the saved game ASAP. It sounds like some sort of mix-up.

Well maybe if I'm not going to be sent it, perhaps Uncle Reg could send me a copy ??

Shall I see what he says - or is that too cheeky of me shocked

Hi.

I just switched my iPad on to check my mail and there was your message and the save, Uncle Reg !! So I can deal with it when I use my computer tomorrow smile

Thank you VERY much indeed.

And thank you, too, Marian.

Cheers.
