Also, possible related to this; what is the difference between "resume game", and "load game". I've been using "resume" along with the auto-save F2, and so far I haven't lost anything.
Resume is always where you immediately left off. Load is any of a number of saves.

Makes sense! Thank you!

Welcome! This is coming back to me as I play it. The hint button for locations of interest is excellent.

alvertis5706 - Nice to see you joining us here. I have never used the auto save F2 function in this game to be honest, but I imagine that it saves in a similar way to the HOG/HOPA games, saves over the top of the previous save. You should be fine using this as long as you don't want to go back to a previous save at sometime.

Welcome to group play amj. I hope you fun joining in here.

Nice to see you have found us LovetoMiss Lisa and Mr_Russ. Yeah I think that the hint button comes in very handy too, there are a good number of LFAs that would be great if they had that function too!

@popla...Please add me in to your player's list.

Just checked in and did a few things, wandered around a bit and did a few more things, now I'm stuck. Guess I need to wander around some more.

I am joining in myself too. Buying todays DD messed up my punchcard, so I had to start another and picked up Hotel in the sale.

I am having a bit of headache, hope it won't turn into one of those nasty ones , so I will probably make progress VERY slow.

Hi to all my fellow players, I hope we will enjoy this one too.

@CfG - Those pesky DD's!! Glad to see you joining us though, I hope you enjoy the game. Got my fingers crossed that your headache doesn't turn nasty for you.

I haven't started my play through just yet, I treated myself to a nice shiny new monitor which arrived yesterday. So I am going to be sorting my desk out so it will fit on!! I will be popping in and out till then though.

I am at day two now. I am a bit confused tough, yesterday I demoed the game and because my hour was up I didn't get to save my game, so I had to start over. But some things aren't the same, or the order is different.
** yesterday I had a long talk with Matisse at the sofa now I've missed that. Yesterday after hearing Matisse was waiting for a fax I dived into Cateia's(funny how the devs slipped in their name ) office supplies and got me some faxpaper, now I couldn't get it since I haven't talked with Matisse. I did send a photo to my geek and managed to get Matisse out of the crime scene and find a camera there.**
Got reply back from geek and I hope I catch up with Matisse,** don't know how else I will get the fax **
Apparently this game isn't totally linear, guess it will sort itself out.

I am starting to replay the game now. I forgot just how good a game this was. Not too hard and fun to play.

Finished. Someone should teach Jack Allin to spell!

Some things are optional.

Shucks.....looks like I'm the first to get stuck... . Spoiler: I have the cell phone, camera, docs, hotel memento, plain paper and matches. I used the axe and sent the photo off. I know where the garden tools and office supply pkgs are. And have had the conversation trying to enter the crime scene. End spoiler. Have been wandering around getting no where.

I think you're right that talking with Matisse is the trigger for the office supplies, Catfish_girl. I also had to restart and noticed that the first time he disappeare from the couch before I could give him the fax and the second I was able to hand it to him. It didn't seem to matter either way to the game, though.

BTW, good catch on the dev's name!
