Hi,
It has a built in strategy guide as it's a CE.

Playing on an IMAC and have run into a difficulty. In the segment in the stables you must find a code to be able to unlock a secret compartment under a statue. However, I cannot find the code. I believe I have done all the required moves, but I cannot proceed until I get the code and I cannot find it. Is this a bug on the MAC or am I just missing something?

I'm not sure why, but the game will not allow me to use the tongs to take the iron out of the fire. i've done everything else possible that I can see. i used the coal, the lighter, and the bellows. put the iron in and it says its too hot. then i click on the tongs and when i use them on the fire they just jump back into the inventory. why is this happening?

Hi, the same thing happens to me also. The tongs will not pick up the iron from the fire and I've followed the steps from the built in guide. grrrrr Not sure if I should delete the game and reinstall or not. Is anyone else finding the same error?

OMG - I just changed the Options and got rid of full screen & widescreen to ask this question about the tongs, when to the game, used the tongs and it worked!! Don't understand but I got what I needed.

I am right at the end of the bonus content. There is no iron bar above the radio for me to pick up so I can't open the trap door to get the fuel. Also there are no sparking wires outside the lighthouse as per Strategy guide. I assume it is a fault but if anyone knows how to make them appear I would be grateful I want to know who did it ( yeah I know it was the butler but I would like to see the end)

Worked out I had not finished the radio bit and when I did the bar and electric sparks appeared. so finished it. I think there might be a slight glitch with the radio. Odd Anyway all good now.

Reducing the screen size with the
Options
menu within the game allowed me to pick up the metal for the crossbow with the tongs.

Definitely a glitch in the game. I tried just taking off widescreen, but that did not work either. You have to make the screen as small as possible, and then you can pick up the metal.
SO FRUSTRATING!! I had started over hoping the problem would just go away. I should have checked here first!!

For me even getting rid of fullscreen and widescreen AND making the window extra-small did not make me getting the iron with the tongs. Shall I REALLY uninstall and reinstall the game just because of that? for a CE that's a huge bug...

Could someone please tell me how to get the chandelier to fall. Have already been out the window, on the roof, on the chandelier, & tried to hit the lever with the weapon I'm supposed to, but I keep getting a "you can't use that there", etc. Finally checked the Strategy Guide, do have the correct weapon, just cannot hit the lever. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has alredy played. Thus far, the game has been a dream to play, no problems at all, so I must be doing something wrong, even though the Strategy Guide says it is correct. Many thanks!
