Sassafras,

Unfortunately because of the game's autosave feature I only have save games from later on in the game.

What section of the Cellar Archives are you having a tough time with? The first hallway with the timed lever? The second room with the wheel? Or the third room with the locked door?

I might be able to tell you what I did to conquer that water monster if I knew exactly what part you're stuck on.

Alternatively, if nobody here has any advice for you, you might consider sending me your game at the point you're stuck at and I can play through it for you. Although that idea terrifies me. eek

Being that we're due some extreme weather later today I can't promise that I'd be able to return the save game to you by the end of today, though.

Best,
Leigh-Anne

I checked and none of my saves will work either. Unfortunately, my game is from Steam and it won't load right now. I have a support ticket in to them.

Any idea of the name of the save you need or the name of the last saves you have? for some weird reason I would have to re-install the game to see the saves(it is from Steam also). I have all the auto-saves, though.

I don't really know what happened with my game (comparing to other boomers). I didn't really play this game as Darkside, I didn't feel like it even when I am a darksider at least as much as an adventurer. I just let the monsters kill me scared and after one or two kills they disappeared !!! The game became easier for that particular part. Is it happening to the rest of gamers?

Here's a link to enable Quicksave in Amnesia. Most convenient.

Edit: OK so been playing for about 3 hours and have yet to see a boogie-man. Is that right?

Hey, mcc, could you do me a favor and launch your Amnesia game from Steam? Mine won't play and the suggestions they have sent don't work. The reason I ask is because in the first splash screen where it lists your video card etc., I have a square on the lower right that says Justine. Huh? Who is Justine? I'm trying to figure out if you have such a name or if your username is there..

If it's too much of a hassle, thanks anyway! I will just ask Steam about it.

Draclvr,

Justine is the name of the DLC that was released a couple of months ago to coincide with the release of Portal 2. Steam users got the download first while lowly people like myself who downloaded the original game directly from Frictional Games were the last to get the Justine add on. I've yet to play it though.

Hope this helps. I've no idea why your game won't launch though. I don't use Steam.

Best,
Leigh-Anne

Draclvr, I'll try, last time it said I needed to re-install the game, I guess this should be no problem.

Edit
I re-installed and as you say Justine apppears and clicking it one can play the DLC as mentioned by Presto. I'll do this sometime.

That you so much presto and mcc! That explains that.. I had no idea where it came from. Still can't play the game, but I hope they can help me figure it out soon.

Hi. I am thinking about getting this game and have some questions. I said I would not play another game by the same people that produced Penumbra and yet here I am.
1. Is there a walkthrough on GB?
2. Is this game anything like Penumbra? (the second one). I did not enjoy that one,
3. Is there any action in this game?, as I am not an action game player
4. Is it point and click or keyboard?
The more questions that I ask and the more that I remember the Penumbra game, the more I think this may not be my cup of tea.
Whats-ya think?
Terri
Oh, also is it heavy on the graphics? (Zotac GeForce Gt220)

Well, I finally got my game issues sorted out with Steam and it plays. You will have to check the walkthrough section here at GB; I'm not sure. There are several out there though.

It is not point and click. I use WASD on my keyboard gamepad and the mouse. CTRL is crouch which is important to hide from the monsters; left shift + W will let you run. But that's about it for movement keyboard controls. You also use the keyboard for your inventory etc. There are no weapons involved and you don't kill anything. Stealth and hiding are your only tools. It's not exactly adventure and it's not exactly action either - sort of a hybrid I guess.

The game is the most seriously creepy and scary one I've ever played. You never quite "see" the monsters except in shadow, but they scare the daylights out of you anyway. Sound effects are used to great advantage to scare you too!

You can download a demo to try out and see if you like it. The game requirements aren't too high, but your GT220 should be fine. You can always try this website to see if your computer can run a game. Can You Run It

Hi Draclvr. I didn't find the WT on GB, I'll look again. Must have missed it. I was going to d/l the demo as you suggested but am having a problem with the site. I registered and it said that my account is in use on another machine. I've only gone into the site on my Vista pc. Guess I'll wait and see what happens in a bit. Now it's saying the account doesn't exist. Oh well, I'll check it out later.
Thanks, wave
Terri

If you checked GB for a walkthrough and there wasn't one, then look on the internet. That's where you should be able to fine them.

Which mirror were you trying to use to download the Demo? There are 4 of them...

I didn't think it was action at all. There's no fighting and a little running. It actually reminded me of the Lost Souls games.
Just Google 'Amnesia walkthrough' and you'll have your pick.

Hi. I didn't get the download because I was having problems registering the account on Steam. Now I need to uninstall Steam from my EHD and either forget it or put it on my C drive.

Update...... I did get it to register but since I was having a problem with the EHD I uninstalled it but am thinking that wasn't the problem. Guess I'd better post back in tech forum.
Thanks L4L
