sherlock holmes-devils daughter- save games ?

To my sorrow and frustration the new SH-game has action scenes, that really frustrate me. I was under the impression that you could skip ALL of them, but that is apparantly not the case. Somehow I managed to get through the first one in Prey tell (Wiggins following a bad guy) but the next one, where Holmes is shot at in a forest, is simply impossible for me to get through. And I suppose there are a lot more of those action scenes to come later in the game.
Am I the only one having trouble here ? Without save games I am afraid I wont be able to finish any of the cases. If anyone here can help me out, I would be most grateful.

It sounds like you are in Epping Forest. I saw several people on Steam complaining that there was no skip for this sequence. Worse, I believe that I remember reading that you can't transfer saved games with Devil's Daughter.

I could be wrong about this, though, so let's wait and see if someone else can confirm this.

It seems you are quite right. I suppose I just have to keep trying.
But action scenes in adventure games should be totally banned 😄

There should at least be a skip option.

There might have been one or two posts on the Steam discussion forum for the game that described their strategy as to how they got through this sequence. Maybe that would help. I believe there are videos on YouTube as well - but I don't know if that would help or not. Good luck!

Hi opcvop

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.

Good Luck

I have had no success with SH being hunted through the Epping Forest and after two days, about 20 tries and a very sore arm I have to give up. I'm so disappointed as I have loved every SH game up to now and it was a Christmas present. I've checked out You Tube and tried other suggestions but nothing is helpful for me. There is a lot about this game that I don't like especially SH looking like John Hamm from Mad Men and somehow becoming younger than the last game in the series. I don't mind giving it a good go but would have liked a skip option after a certain amount of tries. I couldn't find a GameBoomers review for the game??

I don't believe this game has been reviewed by GameBoomers.

I'm really sorry that you are unable to get past that sequence. A lot of people seemed to have trouble with this.

Maybe someone will have a saved game for you. reindeer

That's a shame, dianne. I have had to give up on a few games before for the same reason.

As suggested in the Steam community I emailed Frogwares with an attached file save and asked if they would be able to send a save after Epping Forest. I received an automated reply saying they would reply within 24hours, that was 3 weeks ago. I've emailed again, sigh.

Sorry you haven't had any luck getting a saved game yet. Frustrating.

Because I hate giving up..... I found saves for SH games at support.frogwares.com under Downloads. I clicked on Sherlock Holmes: The Devils Daughter (18) scrolled down and downloaded the file SH8EppingForest.zip 1.4MB. After extracting the two files 1.AutoSave.sav and ChkPfFort201607081220.sav I copied them into the SH The Devil's Daughter game file. Save files are auto deleted after completing each part of the game so I deleted the existing .sav files rather than renaming files. (I didn't delete Options.sav as I didn't know what it was for). I started the game and loaded the latest save which was a pic of Baker St so I didn't hold out much hope but there was SH still running madly but at the end of the forest, yay! It's easy to complete from there. I did not know that Frogwares had a support forum with game saves until now. A note to mods: please delete my post or add a caution if you think anything is amiss re the website or download files, thanks.
