Arcade Game in Chapter 5 (Water Rune)

[Post New]by hazelize on Mar 7, 12 1:07 PM
My ball is stuck in the top section of the game. I can't seem to press the arrows quickly enough to make the ball change directions (to go a little way north, then a little way east, etc.) Is there any way to reset the game? Leaving the room doesn't change the location of the ball, nor does quitting the game.

Same with me!!! If you end up getting a solution let me know!

Does clicking the button below the arrows reset the game?

I remember struggling with this puzzle, but I didn't have the same problem you are having.

One other thing to try is hitting it with the hammer (after getting out of closeup), but I think you have to get the ball through a hole first for this to help.

Thanks for your reply, mcurty. That button doesn't seem to do anything, at least as far as I can see.

I'll post anything I find out to this thread, Tiamaria. I really hate to start a new game for something this dumb.

I tried everything. I hit the arcade game with the hammer - nothing. I wanted to go farther in the game so I ended up starting over with a new profile. When I got to the arcade game again, I just made sure not to go up, but down. Worked fine then. Hated to start over but.....

I've also stranded the ball at the top. I've tried every move my fingers can muster to get it to move, without success.

I'm hoping there is a solution.

(On balance, I'd rather have my tongue pierced than start this particular game over.)

I also started over with a new profile, Tiamaria, but then kept getting access code violations in Chapter 1 at the portal with the red and blue powders. (This is an issue that's discussed in the Technical thread here.) I contacted Customer Service and got instructions for deleting the game and, more importantly, the save data from my computer.

Unfortunately, Meredene, this does mean starting over. If you can create a new profile as Tiamaria did, that's great. If you get access code violations as I did I'll be happy to send the the information I got. (I run Windows 7 on a PC.)

Thank you, hazelize.

I'm mulling over the choice - start over or piercing.

I started over but couldn't summon the will to continue. I decided on one last try with my original profile.

The result was quite extraordinary; almost immediately I got the ball down from the top of the maze to its starting position and then through to the end. The wallop I then gave the machine was most satisfying.

So, no piercing and I can, hopefully, now finish the game.

Meredene, you were able to move the ball from the top of the maze using the arrows? That's amazing. ( ) Good job!

Where exactly did the ball get stuck? I would like to know so we can fix the problem.

I got my ball stuck at the top middle of the pinball machine puzzle. There needs to be a reset button for this puzzle. Can one be added and an game update installed?
