In the bar basement I cannot get the corkscrew to get the cork out of the wine bottle. Any suggestions?

You may be trying to uncork the wrong bottle. Look around.

THE HINT BUTTON IDENTIFIES THE CORKSCREW WITH THE BOTTLE, STILL DOES NOT WORK

No need to yell, bksqd. There is also the possibility that you still have something to do before you can uncork.

Sorry, not yelling, just frustrated! I have tried every thing I know, been all over the scene. I simply cannot get the cork out of the bottle.

Will somebody please tell me how to get the cork out of the wine bottle?

Seems like everyone is having trouble with that cork! I too am getting frustrated - anyone know the solution to the darn cork???

OK - Went back to the scene and all I can say is that after about a dozen times, it finally worked. Just keep trying I guess - no extra step is involved - it's just the opener and the bottle with the little cork. Good luck!

When you place the corkscrew over the cork be sure that the corkscrew is pulsing before you click on it to use it. I had that problem in some other scenes where I thought I was using the item needed in the correct spot but if I moved it around in the area until it pulsed then it would work.

My corkscrew doesn't pulse! I've hovered over the 'correct' bottle that the hint button shows and nothing happens. Very frustrating! Any suggestions?

It sounds like you are in the hidden object scene in the Old Haunt basement. Hover the mouse over the small wine bottle behind the larger bottle in the center of the scene until you see the cursor turn to gears. Where the gears appear is the "spot" for the corkscrew. Unfortunately the gears only show up when your hand is empty, so you have to remember exactly where those gears appeared. Then pick up the corkscrew that is in the scene and place it over the neck of the small wine bottle and it should work.

Good luck!

Me too! I've checked where the gears appear, then picked up the corkscrew but it just flies back to the counter when I click on the bottle. Getting really fed up. That sort of technical issue is unnecessary and extremely frustrating. I have lost count of the number of times I've tried it.

I cannot get it to work either and I am getting extremely frustrated as well! Has anyone else had any luck yet?

I've had the "corkscrew" problem also. Have tried many times for 2 days and it still will not work, it just flies right back to where I picked it up. I'm going to go back to the basement and check out exactly where the gears are turning and go right to that spot to see if I can get it open. If luck wins out I'll let you know in the forum!

Well, I went back to the "basement", determined exactly where the gears were turning, when to pick p the corkscrew and hovered it over the exact spot where to gears were, and the corkscrew neither pulsed nor pulled the cork out! Grrr! It just doesn't work!

I paid for this game and it doesn't work because of the cork not coming out of the bottle with the corkscrew. The "hint" shows I am using the right items but no matter how many times I try, even starting another game with a different "player" name it still doesn't work!!! GRRRRRR!! IS ANYONE WORKING ON THIS? YOO HOO, HELLO TECHS - please get this fixed!!
