Wont let me get saw out of garbage can

[Post New]by GreenDragonfly on Jul 4, 11 3:46 PM
I really liked this game. It was a little jerky and slow at the balcony, but then I switched to standard cursor, and seemed to work better. However, got to the rooftop garden, was trying to build a ladder to get on top of the gazebo thing. I got the wood from the floorboards and it says i need to cut one of the boards and suggested i look in the garbage can for something to cut with. So i went to the garbage can, clicked on it to inspect the inside, it opened up a little window with a view of the inside. Then all of a sudden, the window ring disappeared, the view of the garbage can was still up but it wouldn't let me pick up the saw. I cant go any further until i cut that board, i cant cut the board because i cant get the saw. I have tried closing the game and restarting. I have tried restarting with a new profile. Each time I get to the same spot, and get stuck. PLEASE HELP

I, too, have the zoomed view of the garbage can with the saw enticing me to pick it up, but I am not able to perform that simple task! I was able to overcome a few other glitches in the game by reading the comments; but, alas, there is no remedy for this one yet. Help!!!

I restarted under a different profile, and I was able to get the saw once the tip stated to look in the garbage can. I had already gotten the boards, the nail and the hammer. I know I didn't go near that garbage can until the tip stated to do that. Hope this helps. Apparently we can't look at items BEFORE the tips tell us to do so.
After that, I was able to finish the game without any problems.
