Hi Wildfrank, welcome to the Fish Pond. Have you given the scarecrow his glove, shoe, and belt? The scarecrow will sparkle until the end of the game because you'll need to return to that picture. Did you put the medallion in the cloud door?

I am new to this game and am trying to find the sketch to get the glove. The clues aren't really helping that much. I have a key, thistle, 1/2 sunflower and a leaf but none of those items are getting me anywhere. How do I find that sketch!!

I've got the chest open, but the cabinet won't slide. i've checked the walkthrough, but there is nothing to indicate there is something special needed to open it.

Strebs, Welcome to the Fish Pond. The rabbit sketch is in the trunk on the left side of the foyer. You'll need to exit the picture to that location.

Madtoula, welcome to the Fish Pond. After you solve the circle puzzle on top of the chest, it opens. There is an elongated handle on the top section. Click and hold on that handle and slide it to the right. Good Luck

I got the sun and cloud door to open, but I can't get up the stairs. I put my cursor at the top of the scene, and I get a mssg about "stone clouds raining" or something, and there are puddles of water on the floor, but I can't DO anything. Any hints?

Margie, The scarecrow has every thing it needs. After reading emma's post, maybe I should do the same?

Hmmm Can't seem to get up the stairs... No cursor appears... I had some major mouse/arrow problems at the outside door, but not as much since being in the Foyer.. blast that arrow. Where is it? The walkthru says to go to the top of the screen and it should appear... it doesn't... darn it...

You need to get the sun from the chest to open the door. Hope that helps.

I was still stuck at not being able to access the staircase, so I started all over as a different player and it worked fine.

I also couldn't get up the stairs on my first play. I closed the game and came back with a different player name, redid the foyer and then it worked. The problem didn't appear on a second play through of the game.

i was having the same trouble as a lot of you are with the sun and the rain door..this is what i did..i uninstalled it, cleared all the cache, ran cc cleaner,and shut down the computer..then i rebooted and started with a new player profile and it finally worked..i hope you don't give up on the game until you try this if you are having trouble and certainly ask bfg customer service for help if it doesn't work for you..they have never let me down when i have had a problem..

When you are starting, it is very important that you go slowly or else you will miss something and get stuck. I did and I got soooo frustrated that I was ready to wipe it off my computer. I decided to start over, took it slow and made sure that I covered everything. I made sure to get hints to keep from fading and dying and I have made some serious progress. You don't have enought time with the demo to truely appreciate the game, so buy it. It is a great game with a lot of stuff to do to keep you going and interested.

Kuoala,

Do you need help posting a question? I notice that all 4 of your posts consist of your quoting another post without adding a question or comment of your own. It's a little confusing.

i'm at the point where i need to create the picture using scraps from around the farm painting. only there's 1 scrap missing from the 'chest painting' - the one on the bottom left. without it i can not obtain the contents of the chest.

i've just spent 20 mins of a free demo trying to find this and have about given up. i wonder if bigfish would be nice enough to take this into account and let me play a little longer to see if i actually like the game? but i digress.

if anyone has info on where that bottom left scrap of painting is please let me know! thx!

Copy and paste the link to the walkthrough. There is a screen shot showing the location of the four scraps of paper.
