the last chapter

[Post New]by serenity7x on Jan 3, 12 9:50 AM
i have absolutely LOVED this game....but....i got all the way to the last chapter, and when i returned to the cemetery at the backyard to find a ce lock on the treehole for a hos, there was nothing there!!! i have followed the game step by step by the sg, so i couldnt have missed a step,[i double checked], but there is no chain and ce lock on the tree, and now i cant finish the game...i have everything in my inventory that i am supposed to have up to this point, so i dont understand what went wrong, unless this is a tech issue. i loved this game, and was looking foward to bonus game. i am NOT looking foward to having to start all over again, and hope that next time it will work.
is there some way to resolve this? has anyone else had this prob?
PLEASE HELP!!!
SOOOOO FRUSTRATING!!!

thank you in advance

Are you sure you didn't already open that lock .. it was available to unlock very early in the game, and is where you get one of the keystones.

Let me grab a list of where the keys/keystones are for you. I'll post back in a couple minutes with them. Then you can check each to make sure you've gotten all of them.

First of all, make sure you scroll all the way through your inventory to make sure you don't still have a key in it,

Key locations:
- hanging on the wall in the workshop
- leaning against the tree trunk in the tree house
- on grandma's rocking chair in the cottage
- in the armoire in the butcher's house
- in the glass coffin at the lookout
- in the embers of the fireplace in the manor grand room

Keystone locations:
- hole in tree in manor back yard
- mouse hole in storeroom
- pile of wood beside scarecrow in Hallow Hills
- toolbox in shed at the woodland cottage
- junk pile in Scarecrow Alley
- crypt in lost graveyard


I copied this from one of Shaz's posts. I hope it helps.

*EDITED AND COMBINED TWO POSTS*

You're very welcome! Best of luck finding the lock you missed

If you don't find a lock you missed, you may well have a glitch. In that case, try the following:

First of all, move out of the Manor backyard scene, and then exit to the main menu, and maybe even shut down and restart the game. That has fixed other glitches, but I don't know if it will fix a missing lock.

If that doesn't work, Shaz will be on later (she lives in Australia, so she is asleep right now), and can hopefully help you get the issue resolved. She may have you send her your savegame to try to fix if it is truly a glitch.

I surely hope you can get it resolved soon. Getting that far and then being stopped is for the awful. :s

LOL - orchidna, how do you know so much about me?

I suspect you've just missed a lock somewhere, so if you go through that list of locations, I'm pretty sure you'll find one.

I think the two that are the easiest to miss are the mouse hole in the storeroom, and the toolbox in Grandma's shed - I almost ALWAYS forget to go back and get that one!


I don't think BFG's rules for developers would allow me to go through the "send me your save game" process. But I don't think that's going to be necessary here anyway.

Thanks, Serenity. We'll be looking forward to your report. Here's hoping you just missed one of the locks.

Please can someone help me!!

I am having the same problem. I have unlocked all of the gates and got 5/6 of the keystones. When I go back to the cemetary there is no lock on the tree. I have done all of the previous suggestions but I am having no luck.

Any other suggestions would be gratefully revcieved

If you've unlocked all of them but only have 5 keystones, it means you just need to do the puzzle and get the keystone in one of the unlocked locations. Go back and visit them all again. If you're playing on Casual, you'll see sparkles in front of the one that's not complete. If you're playing on Difficult, you'll just have to click each one, to see which will open the hidden object scene.

Also look at the task count at the top of the screen. Apart from inside the manor and in the back yard, all of them should show all tasks are complete by now. If there's one that doesn't, that's where your keystone will be.

You don't have to get the keystones in any particular order, so you could well have taken the one from the tree, and not the one from another area yet. In particular, check the mouse hole in the storeroom, and the toolbox in Grandma's shed - they seem to be the two that get overlooked the most.

Jeann, you shouldn't have had to start over. If you missed a lock or key, all you had to do was go back and get them. With the map, it is very quick and easy.

I'm truly sorry you felt you had to restart.

I have the exact same problem. I have collected all of the keys you listed, even rechecked all the locations, but am only left with a silver key. There are no chains across the hole in the tree in the backyard.
:-(

There must be chains across something in another area then. Even though you say you've rechecked all the locations, please go back and do them all again - make sure you're in the right place and can see those objects (some people have gotten some places mixed up with others).

 

Re:the last chapter

[Post New]by nancy78 on Jan 7, 12 2:38 PM
I've rechecked all locations yet again, and there are no chained areas. And it says that all my tasks in each area are complete.

I'm really sorry, as this is going to sound like I'm doubting you. But if you have a silver key, then there MUST be one lock that you haven't unlocked. It really sounds like you've gone to a wrong area somewhere. All I can suggest is that you use your map, and make sure you go to every single area looking for those chains and lock.

Is it a silver key that remains? Or a gold key? If it's a gold key (in that case you will have completed the mural puzzle on the stone wall in the back yard of the manor), then it unlocks the gate in the back yard.
