I've been stuck looking for all the bugs and crawlies Nancy is supposed to get. I think I've done everything - talked to everyone, sent the picture so she could get the key, opened the safe...but I've been unable to get one more bug even though I've gone from daylight to night over and over in an effort to get the darn game to give it up.
What else can I do?

It is sometimes hard to get the last one or two bugs. I remember once that I was too slow and one got away, and I finally realized that I was going to have to start over from the beginning of getting the bugs because it did not reappear.

If you are tired of trying, there are some saved games here that you can download. There should be something there that is useful for your problem.

Hi Melia - I remember writing a walkthrough for Ghost Dogs; but I can't find it. It contained detailed instructions for finding the bugs.

If I locate it, I'll let you know. Good luck!

This is one of my favorite ND games. I have replayed it many times!

OK. I'm desperate. How do I extract the savegame to my BigFish client's savegames? I looked at a past post about BigFish and trying to find the savegame folder. I tried it but it didn't get found.

I did not realize that you were playing from a download. On my computer I find Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake in Program Files X86 - do you find the folder there? Since ND has manual saves, you ought to be able to extract the saved game to that folder.

I checked the file folder you suggested but, though the game is there, no savegames are there for me to add to.

They are located elsewhere, then. Have you tried looking in your Documents folder? A search might help you locate them.

You could also try looking at a video walkthrough of the game on YouTube - if you were to watch the catching bugs sequence, you might be able to figure out what you missed.

You were right. They were in the documents. I added the savegame and am on my way.

I think I remember that there were bug(s) under a rock near the house before you got to the woods. Could that have been what you missed?

One of my favorite ND games. I think it's time for a replay.
