Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/24/16 06:15 PM

Although I'm loving the game, I'd forgotten how much I loathe the navigation system! I think I've gotten spoiled by the ability to explore all my surroundings!

Anyway, I am behind the gas station and have added quite a number of things to my inventory and explored everything there is to explore - at least that I can find. However, I need to go back to the front of the gas station so I can listen to the broadcast as I believe that is where my clue is for the laptop password. But after almost 2 hours of clicking, I can find no way to get back out to the front.

Am I missing something?

Drac,
Let's wait for a gamer that is playing the game. They're out there - a lot of them laugh

Hi Tomato Lady

If you are talking about back to the beginning where you left your car with the radio on, This part also gave me trouble and some times it still does. If you can make it back to the transmission tower in the screen where you are facing it with the fence around it, turn left, there you will see the red telephone booth, walk towards that.

Yes the navigation is confusing, and so are the bugs...anyway
Click to reveal..
you climbed a barrier to get there, funny enough you can't climb the same way back, you have to go through the woods, passing the bicycle heap by the qoyt. Hope this helps

Other than picking up the screwdriver to fix the power, I'm stuck at the tool bench in the garage. All I can pick up is what looks like a pin of some sort, but it won't do anything. A little nudge, please!!

Hi Tamia,the order for the video is as follows:

2. Bike wheel
3. Spray can symbol
4. Posting leaflet
5. Knocking on door
6. Mia-drawing pentagon

Hope this helps. wave

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/27/16 01:55 PM

I just did this last night and took very simple note so I just have one or two words for each sim:

Click to reveal..
burn leftlet, bike wheel, spary can, post, knock on door, draw, opening the book, girl going crazy.


You can look at each of them before you put them in the right order.

The 9th one will install by itself, but I do not remember if I clicked on one of the tabs on the left so this can happen.

Good luck. luck

Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/27/16 08:12 PM

I'm finding an odd thing with the video clips. If I click on them or try to move to the laptop, there is no interaction like there is with the rest of the inventory items. But when I click on the laptop, they disappear from the inventory and appear on the laptop. Kind of strange... I have 6 of them so far. Got the glasses and did the oak tree puzzle and now I'm stuck for anything to do again! I'm sure I'll be back pleading for help.
Posted By: Chief

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/27/16 08:35 PM

Drac, when you have a SIM card, you only need to click on "Capture clips" on the laptop on the left when you are in the page to make the movie and it will be added with the others at the bottom. Hope this helps.


If anyone can tell me where to find Gus MP3, you will make my day. grin

Thanks Chief and Upsydaisy! I will try them tonight. I read about the bug on steam that is being reported here as well. So, I will not be pushing play once I have entered the correct order. Unless I can't tell it is the right order, then I may be tempted to see if my game freezes by pushing play!

the iron (horseshoe) is proving a problem. I have completed all puzzles except collecting personal items to go on the stones. Even the walkthroughs on Youtube stop here. Will leave for a few days to see if anyone else has a solution or there is an patch. wave2

Edit: I have just read on Steam that Matt from Shadow Tors is working on a big update going from the preview release (which we have all been playing) to Version V1.01-not sure if this means starting a new game as Matt says events will happen at different times. Thanks Matt for your hard work and dedication rah

People on Steam are saying that they have fished in the pool,--I assume with the magnet fishing rod. I have cleaned off the sign, and seen the picture, but I am not getting a use tool icon at the pool.Is this a glitch, or am I missing something ?

Never mind, just read chief's post about where to find the fishing rod. Does anyone have a surefire way to get to the farmhouse? That's the place giving me the most trouble

Stay tuned...

Quote:
The Dark Path – Larger update coming.
Rather than continue smaller rolling updates, the decision was made to work on a bigger update to take the game from the revising v1 preview release to version 1.01 in a larger step. V1.01 will be addressing issues that some gamers have faced, and is shifting content around for a better game play experience. Events in act 3 will occur sooner in act 2; some events in act 2 are scattered into act 1. Many gamer requested addins, short cuts, improved interactios, along with technical, graphical and audio updates are included. Right now, I am testing to get as much of the update applied to those already playing, as those who are starting a new game will encounter by default. The update will be with you shortly.

Many Thanks, Matt

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/28/16 03:04 PM

Doreen, here is a way to get to the farm:

from looking at the cave (Quoit) and the bikes, turn right. Forward 2x.

At the 2 signs, turn right and forward 1x. Then forward on the path you see in front.

At the step, turn left and forward and then follow the yellow cable down to the tractor.

Go right at the tractor and follow the yellow cable again.

(Maybe a player can come up with an easier way to get there.)


As for the fishing rod, you will pick up a real one. I do not remember where, maybe at the farm????


Good luck. luck

You can get there when you complete the map at the farm.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 03:11 PM

Thanks, 8dognight. It is the one in the fuse box. Now I remember.

It's not in my Inventory nor the tool to open the fusebox. One problem to be settle.

The MP3, the wooden effigies, Olly's glasses, Mia's school ID and comb will be useful
at the wish circle (if this is the proper name for it) in the woods.

Have fun with your game.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 03:23 PM

2 things---did the new patch automatically install in the game or do I have to download it manually? Also, I think I am going to have to restart the game, as the candle puzzle in the café is doing nothing. I try to pick up the matches--no go, and then I try just clicking on the candles and nothing happens. Without having done this puzzle, I will be unable to enter the farmhouse. I have played over nine hours of this game and really do not want to have to start over.

Chief, my screwdriver had disappeared, too; however, I turned the screws with either my fingers or the navigational arrow. In short, the box opened without a tool from inventory.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 04:24 PM

The major update was made this morning. I will start over and I think I may have lost things as well. At least its a great game and I don't mind going back.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 04:59 PM

I had that problem with the candle puzzle too, dorish. But the next time I started the game, it worked. But I've finished the movie and I still can't get into the farmhouse. Need to go back and see what I've missed.
Posted By: dorish

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 05:56 PM

Well, I bit the bullet and started over--got to do the candle thing, and then the game froze. I will have to check, but I don't think I saved right before it . I am getting SO frustrated.

Posted By: 8dognight

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 06:45 PM

People on the Steam board are complaining about being beta testers who had to pay. Frankly I would have paid double to get the game when we did and not have to wait, so no complaints here even if I do end up having to start over.

I do, however, have a bit of a quandary. I did the cafe candle puzzle without a problem and I have not experienced any game breaking glitches with either version unless the following is one: a few minutes ago when I was back in the garage for something else, I checked the tool bench, found that the screwdriver was back, and picked it up.

If I don't restart, will I be able to finish given that some actions in the 1.01 version now come earlier in the game? Mia is still in the farmhouse so I don't have a crucial sim card.
Posted By: dorish

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 07:04 PM

I have just uninstalled the game and am reinstalling it in the hope that I can get past that candle glitch. I tried to do it several times and the game froze so I had to reboot my computer--I now have a MAJOR headache --no doubt caused by stress LOL ! I want to delete all my save games. Can anyone tell me where they are ?

Big sigh of relief and October Fool on me. Just remember Chris Jones has made several so there are precedents from distinguished developers.

My only disappointment thus far with Barrow Hill: The Dark Path is
Click to reveal..
that I suspect Winser will not be wagging way his back from the dead to lick Emily's face unless as prelude to biting face. Winser's disappearance was the only thing I didn't like about the original Barrow Hill. I know that if a dog makes an appearance in a horror movie, there is a genre based obligation to kill the dog--rather like the foreshadowing convention of using in the third act a gun that was lying around in the first--so I was expecting the trope even while cringing. I intend to pretend the sly effigy pattern is for Winser.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 09/29/16 11:02 PM

I have all 8 of the video clips plus one undiscovered one that showed up when I clicked on Make Movie. I left it as the last one, so maybe that's the problem. But I still can't get into the farmhouse!

I'm not sure if you need access to all your foulders to do this.

Probably beacause you've run into a bug. This game should not been published. They let the buyers do the beta testing.

I've bought it myself, uninstalled it and will not reinstall it in a couple of weeks. Perhaps the bugs are ironed by then, or perhaps not.

In playiong the latest update last night, I found the candle puzzle locked the first time I tried it. I reloaded the game, went off and did some other game tasks and puzzles then went back to the candle puzzle. This time it worked and did not lock. I was able to get what I need there and move out of the puzzle screen. Hope this helps.

I understand that the phone is supposed to right about now. I don't know how to hide spoilers here so will not say anymore till I find out what to move the game but I think I have most or all of the items I can get in the woods and station and Quoit.

OH, NO! I've run into the "mug bug." I've made the drink, but can't use it. I even tried a suggestion on the Steam forums to make the drink before I did the pentagram puzzle. Didn't work. Wahhhhhh...
Posted By: 8dognight

Re: Announcing Barrow Hill - The Dark Path - 10/01/16 09:02 PM

Oh, blast, I just made a drink in the mug, so I hope I have made the wrong drink combo.

My question concerns Harker's map in the trunk of the old car. On that map is "old barn." Am I looking for that in vain?

Never mind, I finished. I made the soup first, then the drink, which the game was finicky about.

I'm sorry Barrow Hill: The Dark Path is over. I enjoyed all of it except the video puzzle because the flickering images bothered my eyes.

Oh, and I tried making an effigy for Wincey. Can't be done, not even sideways or upside down.

Why, I wonder, were the packets of ingredients called Purine Balance? Weird name. As I have gout, I treasure the idea of purine balance, still Purine Balance is a peculiar name.

Re: Announcing Barrow Hill - The Dark Path - 10/01/16 09:13 PM

Yes, you are. I would have loved to have that old barn to explore, but alas we won't be in this game.

If you got the right drink, it will turn purple and get sparkly. I made the right combination, but it won't come out of inventory.

Hi everyone. Just started playing the game and love seeing the old scenery and hearing Emma Harry on the radio again. smile I was just wondering after reading some member's posts, if there is an update to the main game that I may need to install? Just want to make sure I have it before I get too far in the game so I don't get stuck somewhere down the line. smile

Thanks everyone,
Tracy

Normally, with Steam, the updates installes itself automatically.
You can look on the left side of the menue. If there is written V1.01 it is the updated version of the game.

There was a new update. Now i have Version V1.02.
I hope everybodys problems are solved now.
I love this game and it is frustrating to see how the bugs destroy the pleasure to play it for some people.

I do hope so seagul. Started new games three times. Uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted games and still getting stuck on that blasted mug!! Are we the mugs do you think? lol

Edit: Have been playing for a while now, all seems OK, events happening when they should, few extras. I feel confident that I will be able to finish. Apart from the bugs have been enjoying this game, I may even go back and replay the first Barrow Hill. rah

I also got a new update last night & started again...(for the 3rd time) I just left the garage after reading & checking out the contents of the trunk of the old car. Left the garage & headed back into the woods & the game locked up!! Couldn't do or go anywhere. I had to quit & start again. This will be the 4th time:( I really love the game but keep running into bugs. I will make sure I save before heading back into the woods this time!!

Seagul: if you want 2 gentle hints. The ingredients can be viewed on either laptop. The note, in the diary (on burial goods) will tell you what the brew should contain. Good luck wave

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 08:22 PM

Well, my hopes have been dashed. I seem to have run into yet another game ending bug. Got all the move clips and have them compiled in the correct order. Set the transmitter according to Gus' instructions and got the "signal live" message. But the "extra" movie clip will not appear. So I went back to check the transmitter - sure enough it had an error message... but I was unable to click on anything to change the settings back. Loaded the game again and this time I could reset the transmitter. Backed out of the screen and went back in - yup, the error message was back.

I am unable to proceed once again. Has anyone else had this problem?

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 08:45 PM

I'm sorry Drac. After last nights update I am finally moving along again but I haven't done the movie yet. I got froze up at the candle puzzle last night but took an old save and got past it.

Drac

Did you compile the movie? I just finished the game and have enjoyed it very much. I did not have all the problem glitches that others had except for one.
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 11:21 PM

I can't complete the movie because no matter what I do, the "extra" clip will not show up. I have the 8 SD cards in the correct order, but when I click on Make Movie, the extra clip does not show up. And of course, without it, "you know who" is still in the farmhouse.

My enjoyment which was great, is slowly ebbing right now... This is two game killing bugs for me. Don't know if I can force myself to start yet another new game.
Posted By: seagul

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 11:42 PM

Are you sure you have them in the right order?At Steam someone posted a wrong order. 6 and 7 are wrong.
This is right:
Click to reveal..
1.burning leaftlet
2.bike wheel
3.spraying symbol
4.posting leaflet
5.knocking on door
6.mia drawing magic circle
7.opening book
8.mia sitting in circle looking possessed

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 11:51 PM

Drac, after you play the movie you click on Make Movie. Then the last one appears.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 11:54 PM

I know - I've clicked on it a dozen times! No, I made sure I have the right order just like you have. I'm going to try opening the game up again and PRAYING the movie works this time! Still don't know what to do about the transmitter settings that just won't hold though.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/02/16 11:55 PM

I'm sorry. Do you think I can transfer a save to you?
Posted By: GreyFuss

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 01:13 AM

I had thought I had the right order and clicked to compile the movie multiple time but it turned out I had one clip in the wrong place. The one that Seagull posted above ended up the correct one for me. I had the 6th and 7th mixed up.
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 01:29 AM

Drac is doing the happy dance... once I reloaded the game and went to the laptop and clicked on Make Movie, it worked!! I didn't change the order of the clips at all as I already had them in Seagull's order.

And it appears that the transmitter not holding the settings doesn't matter... I was able to finish the game. When I've had some time away from the frustrations of the bugs, I will probably go back and play it again. It's really quite an excellent game - so very unfortunate it was plagued by so many problems. Hopefully they are all sorted out now.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 01:57 AM

You have no idea how happy for me I was too! I was just ITCHING to finish this game! It's one I would have loved to linger in and draw out as long as possible because it is such a good one, but the bugs were just too aggravating. Now I wish I would have waited to get the game until after they were all worked out. Ah, well! Just glad to have a really good adventure game to play!

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 04:34 PM

Well, played through after starting new games 4 times, uninstalling, reinstalling, deleting saved games and having latest updates and rah JOY rah no problems or bugs anywhere. (few niggles like being able to use the crystal at two other locations-finding nothing and slight audio garbling with last two mobile phone calls.) bravoto the developers for not throwing in the towel!!

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 04:41 PM

I marvel at you patience.
I was happy enough to be able to play through after the first update.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 05:46 PM

It took me two restarts and I don't think I could have taken a third one, let alone a fourth! I also marvel at your patience!

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 09:11 PM

I am stuck in the area where a fire is in the rusted barrel. I have been in the cave where the laptop is, and the dilapidated building, by the stone pile and everywhere around it. Not sure how I got here and can't figure out how to leave. I keep going around in circles trying to get out of there frown I can't go up or down only to the side and then I am right back where I was. How do I get back to the gas station or anywhere but here?

Thanks!
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/03/16 09:59 PM

I assume you have picked up all the items you can get in the Quoit and the room to the left of the garage and a couple of other places.

I had a hard time with the navigation too, but finally got it figured out. There is a specific item you need to pick up before you can go into the woods. Assuming you have that item, go to the stone pile (after you dismantle it) and turn left. Then turn right and go into the woods two times. Go right and when you get to the transmission tower, go left. From there you will go down the path to the phone booth and the information kiosk and the road.

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/04/16 04:28 AM

Draclvr,

I went to the stone piles and turned left, then right but ended up back at the stone piles. I just keep going in a circle. Maybe I still need to pick up an item? If so, what is it? I think I was in the Quoit. Is that where the laptop is?

Update: I finally was able to pick up the torch and went into the woods. But I still can't get back to the gas station. I am in trouble because non-linear games are difficult for me ;(

Here is the OFFICIAL walkthrough for Barrow Hill the Dark Path from Shadow Tor Studios! You will need a PDF viewer to open it... Enjoy everyone grin http://shadowtorstudios.co.uk/thedarkpath/BarrowHill-TheDarkPath-Walkthrough.pdf

Re: Barrow Hill The Dark Path - 10/05/16 04:09 AM

That's great, jimrh69! I'm sure lots of people will be glad to have it.

gatsbygirl, the only thing I can say is you will need to figure out how to navigate the woods as you have numerous places you will need to go to more than once. Try to look for something to help you remember where you are. There are some signs and other things that are helpful. There is even a certain tree that helped me know where I was.
