album photos

[Post New]by Qismet on Apr 14, 13 7:33 AM
not sure if this is a technical issue or not. if it is not, please forgive me for posting here. after completing the game, i was unable to take the last photos. everyone just kept waving at me - austin kept talking, etc. could someone please tell me if this is a problem in the game or if it is just me?

thank you for your time and, again, sorry if i have posted in the wrong area.

Hi Qismet. I had the same problem. After I purchased the last item and got my reward, all the buttons disappeared..no menu button, no play button, no camera to take the family picture. I had to ctl-alt-del to get out of the game. I'll post in the tech thread too.

I haven't gotten to the last photo yet but I've taken 2 so far. When you try to take the picture, do you have the people in the frame? I thought I could take a picture of any part of the garden and couldn't understand why it wasn't working. Then I realized that it won't let you take a picture unless the people are in it. Hope that helps!

this is still an issue for me. i went the game the first time - didn't get all the photos. uninstalled and reinstalled - played through again to the alpine hill part where the family tells you to take some photos and nothing happens (or will happen). i have been putting the folks within the picture though - thanx for suggestion though. maybe i just have to buy all the clothes and then something that works this out will take place. otherwise, i'm just gonna be grouchy.

The photos are gathered throughout the game. I missed one the first time I played because I didn't listen to Austin long enough while he was talking to get the photo. This can happen at several places in the game. It was not the "last" photo given as it was in the first few pages of the album and it was on a page that contained two photos.

When I played the second time I was careful to not be in too big a hurry during Austin's talks about his life and I got all the photos.

Got to the last photo. The family was standing under the arbor/arch. Austin said take a photo and there was no frame to take the photo with. I couldn't take it. Not starting the over it's long. I think it's a kink in the program and should be fixed, frustrating not having the last photo and knowing what it should look like. Hope they fix it. btw I waited for him to talk n say take the photo there was nothing to take it with as I said above. The family stood there waving and nothing.

Same. It's the only achievement I've yet to complete and it's driving me bananas.
I try to listen to him but I'm never sure how many times I'm supposed to prod the old fart before he's done talking. Would be easier if he just rambled with out my having to poke him for the next chunk of info.

I still have 2 photos to get. I have completed all achievements except thermometer hints, which I still need a couple.
But I had the same issue the first time I played with no ability to take last photo. I had to ctrl-alt-del to get out but when I went back in all was fine - never got the photo though.

I'm having the same problem getting the last photo in the album. I played twice under different names, and came up with a blank album page at the end of the game both times. So, it must be a glich. Too bad, it's a really fun game. I love how Austin (the game) seems to know how long I've been absent from playing.

The last photo comes right after you drive the red car. Don't click out of the ride. When the drive is done, wait until the family is gathered under the garden archway, and are waving. Austin says, "It's time for another photo," and a ghostly rectangle or square will appear off to the right of the family. (Like you are looking through a camera.) Simply move it over them, and click. It was simple, but it took me playing the game three times before I was able to find and get it. I think I was playing through too quickly the other times. Hope this helps someone.

I agree! I just started under a different name. Three photos are taken throughout the game, the others are found in various scenes, and will always be asked for by Austin's mother. The one that some have had troubles finding (including myself), is the one of young Austin driving the pretend bus. The photo is beside the one of Austin listening to his dad read a story about dragons. It is photo #26, and is found in the "old bedroom." Austin's mom asks for it. I got it two times out of three. The last photo is taken after the drive in the red car. Complete the drive, then wait for the family to gather under the garden arch. Austin says, "It's time to take another photo." The camera window (very faint) is to the right of the family. Simply move it over in place and click.
