safe

[Post New]by flaxin on Jul 30, 10 10:22 AM
I'm having a problem with the safe, the first number doesn't really have a clear line on where to put the wheel at. I have the Collectors edition so I did look it up but I've tried 30 times and can't get the safe open. Any ideas?

Thanks

All I can say is, 'keep trying'! It's hard to be precise but remember to turn the dial right for the first number, left for the second and right again for the third. Hope you get through it.

I got it, it was opposite of what was in the Collecters edition. They have turn clockwise first, when actually it's counterclockwise first. heh

Thanks for the encouragement though Poppy, LOVE this game!!

Spoiler:


SOLUTION: counterclockwise, then clockwise, then counterclockwise, then clockwise. Complete opposite of strategy guide's solution.

I found that you turn the safe counterclockwise to 4 and then release the mouse. You should hear a click, proceed to the next number the same way, turn clockwise to one and then release the mouse. If you try to continuously drag to each of the numbers it wont work. Good luck

Wow am I happy we have this forum!! I also kept trying and trying but getting nowhere, thought I was going stupid!! Love this game, if a miswording in the guide is the only problem I run into I must say I love the game. Little tricky at times (which I like). Seems like so many complain if things a little hidden (aren't they named HOG's for that very reason) I like at least some challenge. Another winner BF, keep em' coming!

Hi fishies!

Thanks for all of your reports here in the forums. We are looking to fix the issue with incorrect information in the walkthrough. We will keep you posted with any updates and until then you may want to try Marissa707's solution:
counterclockwise, then clockwise, then counterclockwise, then clockwise. Complete opposite of strategy guide's solution.
or, if this doesn't work, try the exact opposite (or the solution on the guide)
clockwise, counterclockwise, clockwise and counterclockwise
.

Thanks everyone!

I tried the CCW, CW, CCW, CW version and I was successful. The strategy guide is bass ackwards.

Over an hour pulling my hair out and as I'm on the verge of screaming, I thought I'd have a look here. So the walkthrough is not right. I will try with your solution, if it doesn't work I'm ready for the asylum. (from now on I hate all kind of safes)

Ditto on the safe! I've done everything, dialed numbers correctly numerous times and NOTHING HAPPENS. No SKIP option, either, no matter how long I wait.

there must be a glitch with it as I am stuck as well. I wish it had a skip button. Maybe they can send us all a patch?

Completely release the dial between numbers. I had to go counter clockwise not clockwise. When I released the dial between numbers the dial did not move. I normally play all games with the sound off (muted) because I am hearing impaired and what I can hear is distracting. However for the safe puzzle I turned the sound on and listened for the clicks. That helped too.

I have tried everything from counter clockwise to clockwise, and still nothing. I just want to skill it, but I can't. So fustrating. I can't even determine where exactly the line for four is so I tried several of them and still nothing. Could someone please help me. What am I doing wrong? I have tried releasing the dial after each number too.

It must be a random code, because the WT I have refers to 9-6-1. But, irrespective of that, I can't get the click no matter how slowly I go.
