Electrical box is not sparking. It's inactive.

[Post New]by nivla47 on Apr 5, 12 1:27 PM
According to my strategy guide, once I have the pole and the cotton, the 2 are combined to make a torch. The instructions are to then take the torch to the front of the building that has the radio inside and place the torch between the 2 sparking wires to light the torch. Except the electrical box doesn't have 2 exposed wires that are sparking. It is completely inactive. How is this possible?

Look at the first building you encountered by the docks. On the left hand side you should see the electrical wires sparking.

I have no sparking wires anywhere, the pole is missing that I need to pry the big gate in the floor of the lighthouse open and I have no gas tank now either. I have a pole with rum covered cotton and a makeshift glass cutter. That's it.

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

When in the lighthouse, use your makeshift glass cutter on the window (mirror) to open to show you that you need to light it. Don't know if that will work or not, but give it a try. Maybe then you will see the sparking wires for the rum covered pole. As for the gas, not really sure about that as I had no problem with it disappearing.

Well, I seem to be in the same boat as many others. Neither building on the lighthouse isle is sparking. Perhaps it's time for BFG to provide an answer to the problem?

I used the glass cutter, but since I have no way to pry the bronze floor gate open because the iron bar is missing, I can't get what I think is the gas can beneath it so now, I'm stuck. There's no way to restart the bonus game that I can see so I don't get to finish this one unless BFG can come up with a solution. I really had a lot of fun with this game until now!

*sigh*

I'm in the same boat as all of you. No iron bar, no electrical sparks to light rum soaked torch. Obviously I am missing something. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

I'm also in the same boat with the rest of you. Have done everything. Back and forth and nothing.

Count me in too, no iron bar, no sparkling wire, can't open the hatch. Hope we get an answer soon, don't feel like getting so close to the end and not being able to get there.

Just discovered that you have to keep clicking on the conversation with the coastguard. Eventually he agrees to come to help then everything clicks into place.

I had the same problem; electrical box not sparking and no crow bar, but thanks to Elaine1709 problem solved. So go to the radio and keep clicking on the Coast guard conversation. The radio will stop working and will start to smoke! You'll see the wire start sparking outside the window. Hooray, I got to finish the game. Thanks again Elaine1709!

Thank you, thank you, Elaine1709! I clicked on that radio for two days! Finally, it got to where they agreed to come out.

Would be nice if the strategy guide was a bit more comprehensive about that!

Finally got it! After you initiate conversation on the radio, click on the response from the coast guard at the bottom of the screen (you have to actually click on the words) and conversation will keep going, radio will blow up, wires will spark. whew!
