I am in Cairo and the man at the market gives me a pot to milk the camel with but the pot is nowhere in my inventory. Can someone help?

Set the clocks in order that was given, ie Gale, Jupiter, Date from Claire. Gale no. is on board, Jupiter no. is on ceiling of hall. If Claire hasn't told you her special date then you have to do other things to trigger it. A tip...press the dial and not the hands on the clocks of the chest. The hands move Lt. or Rt. depending which side you click. Took me a while to realise not to try moving the hands. LOL

Good luck...you'll need it with all the gremlins in this game.

Same here. Seems to be a glitch. I tried from a previous save as well.

I had the empty cartridge in inventory when I spoke to the janitor. After he gave it to me I checked and the empty one was now full. Took me a minute or two before I thought to check it as I didn't think he'd given it to me. LMSO
Hope this is the case for you two.
I think there are more than a bug or two. More like a squad of Gremlins.
I got to the Counts place and did the board and the tree of life puzzle. Got the seeds and talked to the Count. He told me to run and pushed me out so got the cut scene, went to Cairo. Cursor went weird and showed the hand in places I couldn't use it, so, reloaded to the end of the tree of life puzzle...dozens of times. It was pot luck whether I got the tree puzzle, which was on the load screen, or the journal/info window. Now that was real spooky.LOL. The thing that's really ticked me off...I have the same prob as many here, I can't get the cut scene or access the gondola now.

I seem to have a different issue. I've never run into this before. The picture is half off the monitor. The whole left side is black. When I close it, all is fine again. I don't think it's my monitor...anyone have any ideas?

I"m not getting the mask or flare from the masked partiers in Venice. I gave them the autographed book and the woman mentions the flare, but then all converation is ended and nothing goes into inventory (I scrolled the inventory arrows and nothing new was there). I went back and forth and tried to talk to them again, but no conversation was allowed and no mask or flare. I loaded an earlier portion of the game and "came through again" using the walkthrough, but again... no mask or flare were given. Sounds like a bunch of bugs in this one.

It is too bad that I didn't look here before downloading and trying.... I got frustrated so decided to check the forums. When I saw how many folks/fishies were having trouble with this it was like deja vu all over again! COME ON BFG test these games FIRST....

Glitches seem to be popping up randomly for a lot of us. Mine is in Cairo, after copying the map and returning to the antiques dealer, he is supposed to take the scarf back during our conversation. Well, the conversation happens, but he never takes the scarf, so I can't actually continue the game.

I am stuck in the conversation with the Gondalier in the meeting hall. He says he has something to give me. But the characters continue to look around. No dialogue and I can not leave the scene.

I am having exactly the same problem.

I never had the demo, so can't blame it on that. I do have 2 of the glitches. I did not get the full toner cartridge nor did I get the flour. Like the others I can't talk to Antoine or the Innkeeper any more. I am not going to keep starting the game over again in the hopes it will work. If they can't come up with an update to fix this, I think we need our money back.

gosh ... sounds like a really "buggy" game ... so many folks with the same issues. I'm stuck in Venice, Sylvie just will NOT run away - though I'm ready to. Perhaps BFG could give us poor frustrated gamers a credit for another game ..... this one is TOO buggy for words.

I'm having the same problem! Have tried playing the scene over using a save...nope still have no mask or flare in inventory. Also, deleted and reinstalled the game. Very frustrating.

Happens to me again:

am having a similar technical problem to others. I got the bucket of water (after I purchased the game) and gave it to the innkeeper, and he supposedly gave me the powder, but I have no powder, the water is still in my inventory and I can't talk to him anymore. Based on previous posts, I assume starting from scratch will solve the problem

Have just hit my 3rd glitch, first i wasn't given toner, restarted from scratch, second, couldn't light flare in gondoler, restarted at begining of venice part (save often)
and now i can't get the whip from the camel trader in Egypt, Come on BFG this could be a good game if there were not so many infuriating glitches, sort them out pronto, too many people are having similar issues, any more glitches and i may just give up and ask for a refund, used a credit for this one too. Oh well i will have one last go from an earlier save, fingers crossed!!!!!!!

I am also having problems with leaving the meeting room. The gondolier said he had a chronometer for me from the count but he doesn't give it to me and I can't do anything but stand there with him and sway back and forth. I really don't want to have to replay the whole thing again, had problems with the basque puzzle. I haven't however had any of the problems others have described.
