Possible Solution to Cut Scene Glitch

[Post New]by Catnipper on Apr 14, 11 2:11 PM
I see many people are having the same problem I had. I was talking to the gondolier and when he was supposed to give me the chronometer, the scene stopped and I could do nothing further.

As I was about to quit and add this game to my little pile of 'unable to finish' games, I noticed the Cut Scenes option and decided to try it. I clicked on the last cut scene available (which was my flight to Venice) and after it finished playing, I heard myself talking to the gondolier. So I clicked on "Resume" and the scene with the gondolier played all the way through this time and I received the chronometer.

I hope this helps those who've had problems with this scene and others, such as getting the toner, etc. I know how very frustrating it is being unable to finish because of a glitch (or an IMPOSSIBLE puzzle).

Catnipper,
This sounds really great. Did you find the Cut Scenes on the Main Menu, Options? Where?

Mcurty, the Cut Scenes were listed on the Main Menu, along with Options, Save Game, Resume, Credits, etc. I clicked on Cut Scenes, instead of Exit Game as I'd originally intended. After the scene played, the glitchy scene with the gondolier restarted and played through.

I was so happy I didn't have to put the game in storage and then start over again months from now--especially since the slider puzzle came right before that scene and I wouldn't like to have to go through those hundred moves again.

Thanks for info, Catnipper. This may help out many others with problem areas involving the cut scenes. Wonder if it works for leaving Venice?

Well, I finally finished my tax forms and got back to the game. I had no problem leaving Venice and no further problems with any cut scenes.

Glad you got the game to work correctly for you, Catnipper. Would have never thought of your solution.
