Richard,

You can right-click on deskstop game to see files are located!

In game directory savegame location is:
up to windows vista
program files\louisiana Adventure\profiles\default

Windows 7
program files (32bit)
program files\louisiana Adventure\profiles\default

However, it's possible game be locates under your user name something like:
User\AppData\Roaming\louisiana Adventure.

If you don't see AppData directory under user name while using file explorer, you need changing folder option within control panel by
selecting Show hidden files... via view tab.

Be sure to revert back original setting, while changing folder option this is best way put other member savegame!

I hope this help.

Thank you, zerocat. Pressing escape on the last note worked! Thank you too, Ludwig, for the saved game. I noticed in your inventory you had an iron rod. Where did you find that? Also, there is a box near the bicycle guy with a gear icon. Is there something to be done with it? If there is, I can't figure it out.

I downloaded the German walkthrough and did a google translation. Still not easy to follow but better than nothing

Hi Ludwig. I used Google Chrome to access your website. It seems that the Translate machine DOES translate from German to English EXCEPT for the .pdf walkthrough files such as "Louisiana Adventure" and "Lucius". If they had been written in a different format, the program probably WOULD translate them into English.
I thank you for pointing me in the right direction, however. I am now able to access many other walkthroughs on your site in English.
Sandy

---------------------

Hi Kjos. Unfortunately, I was not able to translate "Loisiana Adventure" from German to English(using Google Chrome) It seems that it doesn't work for me when it's a .pdf file. Please read my reply posting to Ludwig for more of the details. If anybody has a work-around method for this problem, I certainly would appreciate a helping hand here. Thank You.
Sandy

Well, I bought the game today. There was a "Black Friday" deal on The Adventure Shop. and I couldn't resist. Now all I need is that English WT.

Can someone please tell me how to get in contact with the makers of the game? I've contacted both Silverplay and JustAdventure over a week ago and received no reply. The reason I need to contact them is I want a refund. The game stops at the swamp and there is absolutely NO WAY to get past it. I've tried everything possible, all suggestions and advice but no luck. I don't want to try anything else as I've wasted enough time trying to get this thing working - it's broken and I should not have to pay for it.

If I don't get a reply from them soon I'm going to write on all the adventure websites about my experience, and hopefully the gamers considering buying will avoid my misfortune by avoiding buying this broken game which is supplied without any customer support.

Thanks.

Wincey,

Please don't make threats in this forum-site.
It would be best to wait for Silverplay's reply. It looks like they are the developers and can help with your technical problems.
Anuman Interactive is the publisher.

YAY! I finally figured out how to translate the German wbpage to English:
I opened up my GOOGLE TRANSLATE program, copied the WEBPAGE address and then PASTED it into the left pane of Google Translate and clicked on TRANSLATE, aned there it was in English in the right side pane. I printed it from that right side pane. Now I can proceed with playing the game. The English translation is a little hard to understand, but it's better than nothing. I hope this has helped those Boomers who have had the same problem as I have experienced.
HAPPY GAMING, fellow Boomers.
Sandy

P.S. Thank you, Ludwig, for pointing me in the right direction.

It's not a threat, simply helpful advice to other potential consumers to let them know what they are in for. You, as an information depot for adventure gamers, should be welcoming such advice.

1 week is a long time for urgent feedback to a customer but I'm kind enough to give them longer, at least. 2 weeks is far too long IMO and I will give them that but I haven't decided how much longer.

My game crashes to after I get out of the basement in the cabin at the swamp when I try to use my inventory items. Still trying to find where my saves are.Will keep trying.

Great that you got the walkthrough translated, sanford.

Wincey -- I just checked the SilverPlay website, and it seems to be down at the moment. frown Hopefully the problem is only temporary. If they're inundated with folks having similar issues with the game as you're having, then it might take a little longer for them to respond to your e-mail, so hang in there.

Wincey & kjos -- I had the same problem and was able to get past it. The game crashes whenever you try to access your inventory or use an inventory item, right? The problem is that your inventory is full and (for whatever reason) the game doesn't like that. Here's how I was able to get past it... I restored to a point before I entered the hut. Then combined everything I could and only picked up inventory items when I actually needed them. I'll put some more specific instructions in a spoiler tag...

Click to reveal..

I'm going off of memory, so some of this may be out of order/not quite right.

Pick up the board and cheese. Use the board to move the crate. Open the trap door and throw the cheese to the rat.

Go downstairs. Pick up the salt and use it on the vat of vitriol.

Go back upstairs and pick up the empty bottle.

Go downstairs and fill the bottle with the hydrochloric acid.

Take the cork from the table and combine it with the bottle of acid.

Go upstairs and use the acid on the lock.

Take the wrench and go downstairs again. Use the wrench on the large distillery thing (can't remember the name) to get a metal pipe.

Take the wire from the distillery equipment and combine it with the metal pipe in inventory.

Go upstairs and use the combined pipe/wire thing on the door.

Take the picture from the shelf and leave the hut.

I seemed to have just the right amount of inventory slots left to accomplish this. So if you started the chapter with more inventory slots filled than I did, this might not work for you.


This game seems to have a lot of bugs. I noticed someone else posted in the tech support section that they can't even get the game to load. Hopefully SilverPlay will release a patch.

On another note... I finished the game and decided to replay it because I think I've missed some stuff. Starting with the first section of the game (at the hotel), does anyone know...

Click to reveal..

  • Can you do anything with the safe in the manager's office?
  • How do you get tools from the toolbox (the one that's outside, not the one that's inside by the stairs)?
  • When you stand next to Katie's bed the gears symbol appears. However, all she does is talk about how tired she is. Can I do anything else here?
  • How do you get to the area behind the hotel (where the dock is, not where the patio is)? I'm convinced that this must be possible because I saw a screenshot with the main character in that area during the day (not during night time, which happens later in the game). Here's a link to the image I'm talking about.

Thanks so much abToast will try what you said
I filled the empty bottle and have one empty space as soon as I pick up the cork the game freezes. I still have the cheeze in my inv.

Thanks zerocat, that trick to pass the piano scene worked perfectly.

Having now finished the game I must have missed some things because that ending was very sudden.

Glad I'm not the only one. The ending seemed very anticlimactic and there were some side plots that weren't closed up at all. I'm hoping that means that there's multiple endings and not that the game is poorly written, but either are good possibilities.

Hi, fellow Boomers. I'm playing the game using the translated German walkthrough. I've just done the "hut" part and I haven't come across any glitches so far.I'm enjoying this game very much.

How do I combine items in the inventory? I have the 4 parts for gnome statue and I have the whiskey bottle and sleeping pills. I am pretty sure I have to combine the sleeping pills with the whiskey but I don't how to combine them. And I have fixed the fountain, so where is the janitor now? And I can't take anything from his toolbox cause "I don't want to steal from him" Thanks for any help

To combine in inventory you just drag one object and drop it onto another object.

I also haven't figured out how to take tools from the janitor's toolbox. When he's there Katie says "I can't take his tools while he's here" and when he's not there she says "He already thinks I'm a thief. How could I take his tools." Hopefully someone else has figured it out and can share with us.

Thanks for the info. Now I can continue. Now I am trying to get into jail to talk to the janitor.

Do you get to go back to the hotel where the game begins? If not somehow I have skipped a whole heap.Wow trying to get into the jail where the janitor is. Boy is it hard.

You get to go back to the hotel later in the game during night time. But you can't go inside the hotel, just to the back yard.

Do you need a hint about the jail?

Click to reveal..
You don't actually go inside the jail, but you do help the janitor escape. There's a grate in the ground near the jail door. Once you're standing next to it, you'll be able to talk to the janitor and he'll tell you what he needs.
