Can't open jail cell

[Post New]by ShrimpFace on Oct 26, 10 12:51 PM
I'm a newbie to the forum so please be gentle. I've found the badge with the three numbers and placed it in the indentation by the cell. When I press the correct numbers nothing happens. Please can anyone help me?

Welcome to the pond Shrimpface!

Here is a thread that may help: Policeman's badge number

A great way to search the forums without going through a lot of threads is the Advanced Forum Search under the Search All Forums. Here you can choose a specific game and type a keyword like "badge" and the posts with the word "badge" in it will pop up!

Happy Gaming!

Please ignore previous post. My moniter is going bad and I couldn't see the dials clearly.

Hi bfgTigris,

I went to "Policeman's Badge Number" and tried the various suggestions. No luck. I left a post there the other day, but I guess nobody has been back there since a solution was suggested and I assume it worked for some. Not me, however, and I would appreciate some continued interest in this problem. Thanks, I really want to continue the game.

Do you actually have the badge? It's part of the unlocking mechanism (sort of ) As I recall, you won't be able to open the cell for quite a while after discovering it!

Yes, I have the badge and therefore the badge number. Can't operate the dials.

Chelseybee - Please be more specific about lining the numbers up. I see very faint arrows in the center of the dial, but pointing them all to the left doesn't work. Clicking the dials according to the numbers on the badge doesn't work either. I'm glad there is a solution, but I have yet to find it. Hope you can help.

I was having problems with this too. I can't see any numbers on the dials at all. I did finally open the cell - here's what I did: If you can see the faint arrows inside each dial, line those up first. I don't know if it's different on everyone's game - but I tried various combos. I put them all pointing at the four oclock position. Then, I clicked the top one five times, the middle one once, and the bottom one 8 times and it finally opened. The key is to get all the arrows pointing in the same direction to start with. Yours may be different - but try the four oclock position first and see if that works.

Thank you, thank you! I never would have thought of the 4 o'clock position. It worked for me and I really appreciate your help. Onward and upward!!!!! Yipee!

I can't see jack on those dials and I am playing in a very dark room. There is nothing wrong with my monitor and I refuse to adjust my resolution for this game. Not really enjoying it, just wanting to complete it so I can get it off my hard drive.

Yes, it depends on your badge number - mine was 942. Lined up all arrows (could finally see them; eyes were tired last night), then counted out accordingly to the badge #. Worked...just to get a key....
