Elaine, your tip rescued me from a meltdown. It was so frustrating to get near the end of the game and be stuck! Had to keep at that conversation--I think the Devs might have done better with this one thing.

Thank you so much!!!! I was stuck at the exact same place as everyone else and found out then that I had to click on the dialog to keep the CG on the line. I agree with everyone - the guide and hints were of no help whatsoever!

Thanks, Fishies!!!

Add my "thank you" to Elaine1709!!! I had the unlit torch, and tried and tried but could get not get the wires to spark. I went back for about the 20th time to the radio, reset the dials - again -, and clicked on every bit of conversation...and it finally worked!

Good game but a bit frustrating there at the end!!

Thank you again!

Thank you, Elaine. You saved me from throwing my laptop across the room! No, not really, but I was able to finish the game and am now happy, happy.

Thank you so much for your post! I kept playing the conversation over and over without realizing you actually had to click on the words! Finally finished!

I was in the same boat as everyone else. - I finally got it! I don't know if it's partly my computer but I had a real hard time to get the radio working again but finally made it through! The guide definitely could have been clearer on that. I was ready to toss my computer out the window.

I was having all these same problems, but then I finally remembered the fact (that I found in this forum) that the strategy guide has a scroll bar! Then the strategy guide made perfect sense.

I think there's a problem with the bonus game though I downloaded my game after the update...


"YES!!" I didn't have 'sparking wires', either. PLUS, I can't get the bloody CORK out of the SINK, using the AWL, as the GUIDE suggests! Do I need to UPDATE?

"I've been ALL OVER the outside of the light house and NADA. NO SPARKING WIRES. I even tried holding the rum soaked cotton to the sky, hoping the lightening would strike it!! Still can't get the CORK out of the SINK, using the AWL as the 'guide' suggests. I just get the message, "I think there's a better use for this." UGH. I'm soooo close to the end. Someone please help?

I didn't get sparks outside until I had played the radio minigame to speak to someone. Then the electrics get cut and you can access the sparking wires.

Thanks Elaine 1709 and Kbug. Really irritating, and no help from hint, or strategy guide or diary. Thank goodness for The Forum!
