Golden Key in Bonus Game?

[Post New]by fnlalesi on May 11, 12 4:43 PM
Is anyone else having trouble finding this? According to the SG, it should be in a HOS where the knight is, but I can't access it. I've knocked it down to casual mode so I could use hints and hopefully have the location highlighted, but still nothing. In fact, I've used hints in every room and all I get is "there's nothing for me to do here right now" in EVERY scene! Help!

OMG!!! YES YES YES!!! The same thing is happening to me. @ fnlalesi......I have done the very same thing did you have done! Switched to the casual mode and checked EVERY room and get the same thing....."There's nothing for me to do here right now".
I can't believe we are the only two with the problem???!!!!

Sorry you are having trouble.

Have you used the Light Potion on the knight, then talked to him?

Did you picked up the HORN and the GOLDEN BASE after talking to the knight?

@prpldva...yep....used the Light Potion on the Knight. Picked up the HORN and GOLDEN BASE. And that is were I'm stuck. No HOS screen opens near the status. A window opens and gives a closer view of the female gold statue on the left. Nothing else.

Hmmm. Have you tried reading through the strategy guide to make sure there isn't a step you missed somewhere? It sounds like you may have missed tripping the trigger. Unfortunately I've only played the game once, so I'm not sure what the trigger is for this HOG.

Yep.....however, I did read through the SG pretty fast. When I switched from the difficult mode to the casual mode so that I could use the "hint" button....I traveled to every location and used the hint button, getting the message, "There's is nothing to do here at this time".
@WilJul......so you did get through the Bonus Chapter OK?
In the meantime, I'll go back and check the SG more closely.

Hi MET21! I did indeed get through the bonus with no problems. I was getting a little careless by the end though and had to dip into the sg myself to find things I stupidly overlooked!
Good luck with that sg read. Let us know if you figure it out!!

Just went through the SG very carefully. I didn't miss anything. Do you know of a way the start the Bonus game over without playing the "initial" game?

I went through the SG myself, step by step and haven't missed a thing. That HOS is simply not there, making it impossible to finish the game (again)

There is clearly a problem here.

There is no HOS at the base of the Huge Statue of the anciently worshipped god.

No one is missing anything. The HOS is simply not there.

After completing this HOS, we should get a golden key to unlock the door near the knight's sword. No key. Without the key, the game will not move on.

This really sucks since unless the bonus game is completed, the bonus content such as the music and wallpaper cannot be accessed.

I hate wasting my time and a gaming error like this one is unacceptable.

I sent an email to Big Fish yesterday about the problem. I received an answer just to little while ago. Here is the email sent back to me:

I was hoping for a different answer! Oh well!! Happy gaming to all and to all a good night.

Did you already place the horn and harp with the angels and get the sword? the sword then goes to the knight.

Yes, I did. I noticed in the SG that those actions come after you play the HOS. Even if that's the case, the programmer should have made exceptions for that.

The strategy guide only reflects the way I played the game. There are of course, so many variations in sequence. But it worked in this sequence the many times I played as well as Q & A, so it is either a file corrupted during download/installation or a computer configuration issue.

I would first try reinstalling. You can also make sure your video card drivers are current; also update Flash and DirectX. Lastly, contact tech support. They will need info on your configuration to look into the issue.

I hope this helps and you are able to get it resolved.
