technical problems

[Post New]by Lucy1997 on Jan 1, 12 8:30 PM
Well, it seems that there are posts about technical problems in at least three locations, so I'll just start a thread.

I thought this game was fun until I lost the screwdriver (which is supposed to reappear in your inventory) while catching the mouse. Since I can't move on, I just deleted the game since I figured it would take days to get a response from BFG since it's a holiday.

Hi Lucy,
I also used the screwdriver as a support for the mousetrap, but did you also add the last ingredient - the cheese?
Once you have caught the mouse, you can retrieve the screwdriver or chisel.
Cheers

Thanks, DLO: I did put the cheese in, but didn't get the screwdriver back, even though the mouse was in my inventory. Too bad. I liked all the different stuff the devs had put in the game!

Hope you have had a good 1st (despite the heat). We've had snow and freezing rain, so I just stayed at home!

Hi Lucy, the screwdriver certainly should come back into your inventory after you catch the mouse. Is it possible that you were using the chisel to prop open the mouse trap instead? The chisel comes from the storeroom, on the wooden box. The screwdriver is obtained from the block of ice in the front yard of the manor.

You do use the chisel on the mousetrap and it comes back. You have to go to the front of the manor to use the chisel to obtain the screwdriver. Hope this helps.

I am on the last but one level and i have put my mud into the bricks and it has only given me one brick. All the other moulds still show the mud in them but it will not give me the other 4 that i need. How do i rectify this??? Please help x

Holkis, this is a bug in the game. If you have not gone to another area yet and not gone back to the menu, just close your game (alt-f4), then load it again. You'll have to repeat a few steps, but you'll be able to get all 5 bricks.

I downloaded the game again to be sure that I had found the screwdriver, which was still enshrined in ice in the front yard. Sorry...my bad, but thanks for the help! I may actually get the game now....
