Compass!!!

[Post New]by katejoe999 on May 15, 11 5:00 AM
Anyone having trouble with the spinning compass mini game??
It's a sweet sweet game but with no skip this puzzle is driving me crazy. It's quite fiddly to maneuver - even had my 13 yr old give it a go. Seems I'm stuck until I can nail it.

Just solved this one.

Thats why I am on the forum, to take a break & calm down LOL, NOT !!!

OK, I went round & round & round SPOILER (Counter clockwise because I did look at the walkthrough on the ZZZZ site )

In the end I cam out of the puzzle, walked around, then went back to it, put the compass in again twirled for SPOILER ( about 3 1/2 turns according to the W/T ) and got it at once.

So try that, come out & start the puzzle again.

HTH,

Jojo

I did the same thing as jojo. Put the switches on what I thought was an oven, went back to it and got it on my third spin. I was about to take my frustration out on my husband and/or dog and they both thank you, jojo.

I have posted 2 videos of how to solve this on youtube. You can find them by doing a search for tiny bang story compass on youtube.

Good luck!

Yikes! This is making me crazy or maybe crazier! I too have spent hours on the compass. Checked the zzzzzz site walkthrough, let my teens both take a shot at it and nothing. I get everything lined up except the tiny one in the middle is just a itty bit off.
This is driving me to drink!

jericec,
After you have your drink (lol!), get out of there and go do something else for a minute. This one drove me nuts, too, but I finally did what the "zzzz" walkthrough said and it worked. This puzzle is very sensitive, so just one wrong flinch can put the wheels out of alignment.

Thanks! I checked out your video, but unfortunately it didn't seem to help me until I read one of the comments there about turning off fullscreen and what do you know? THAT actually worked for me! LOL

So Here I am just dumb I guess. one walk through say to go counter clockwise three and a half time and bingo they will align. Ha and double ha ha I get the small and big wheel align but the tiny one is off just by a tiny teeny bit. I try going righ and left I need a for sure fire proof solution anyone.

Thanks Sleepless. For some reason turning off full screen & rotating 3 1/2 times counter clockwise worked for me. It did not work with the full screen however Try it!

When I try to go out of full screen mode a pop up tells me the mode can't be changed.
So now how do I get the compass to line up?
