Found magnet

[Post New]by hookedonHOG on Jan 5, 14 11:30 AM
I found magnet on wall right side of screen under birds neck area kind of light almost a shadow
I don't know if it was because I shot 3 times( hard to find bullets) but when I did it seemed like it showed up then
The mirror was also hard to find as it was close to the bottom by the hint button

That didn't work for me - I kept trying. I don't see enough of the bird's neck to even get a glimpse of the magnet. If you look at the strategy guide and then at the screen of those of us having this issue, there is a huge difference in what is seen. I am extremely disappointed in this and the response received.

I also used the gun and did nothing to help get the magnet...tried and tried with no success..very very frustrating. I buy CE to get bonus games so it really stinks when it cannot be played...

This is truely frustrating. I can't get to the magnet. The hint tells me it is to the right of the bird's neck and I can't reach it.
I tried going to half page view, hoping that would change the view, but no!
I don't know how that other guy got to the magnet because there is no way to reach it.
I have really enjoyed this game up until now.

I also cannot retrieve the magnet. Not enough of the bird's neck is showing. Very irritating!

I'm having the same problem. Enjoyed the game until now. Can't see enough of the screen to even see a magnet. Very frustrating.

This is ridiculous. I think they should refund the cost if they can't fix it. Don' know how one person found it and no one else can. BF owes us an explanation or refund.

Same problem with the magnet. There appears to be no way to adjust the HO game; the image is designed for a wider monitor than I have. Since there's no way to skip the puzzle, the bonus chapter is effectively unplayable.

Same problem with the magnet. It seems that unless you have a widescreen monitor, you can't get it OR play the bonus game!

Moderators, you don't seem to understand about the magnet.

It's not a problem with our computers or drivers. In the first HOP of the bonus chapter, there's a magnet you need to click on in order to finish the HOP and continue the game. Unfortunately, the magnet is all the way on the right of the screen according to both the hint button AND the picture in the strategy guide. However, the actual HOP isn't as wide as the picture in the SG. If you click on the hint button, it shows it to be all the way on the right just off screen.

There's absolutely NO way to click on it. Trust me, I tried clicking all along the edge of the screen, but no dice. I went to "Options" hoping there would be a "window" mode so it would lengthen the scene, but there's only a "full screen" mode. All this does is minimize the game, and clicking it off and on doesn't do anything but minimize/ maximize the game. It does NOT lengthen the scene, which is what is needed.

Unless you guys put up a patch, there's no way to progress in the game, which is really stinky for a CE. This is literally the first HOP in the Bonus Chapter in the FIRST SCENE. You can't even get to the next scene without finishing this HOP, which is IMPOSSIBLE!! Running as administrator doesn't have any effect on it. I might as well have waited/ payed for a standard edition since the Bonus Chapter is unplayable. This is very disappointing and really stinks!

Please either come out with a "fix" or refund our money. I really liked the game and was very excited to play the Bonus Chapter, which I got to play all of about 2 minutes of. Please don't offer other suggestions because nothing else works. It's not a technical issue on OUR end, it's that the scene is cropped shorter than it should be according to the Strategy Guide. If you compare both pictures it's blatantly obvious!

This is a pic of the actual scene in the game:

And this is the pic from the strategy guide, so you can see the difference in how the scene/ pic is cut off. The magnet should be right under the "T" on the right side of the screen.. this area is not visible/ accessible IN the game HOP itself.

I also tried adjusting the screen resolution and that didn't work either. How are we supposed to finish the game? I sure hope that there is a fix coming soon.

I can't find a screen scroll on my game.

There is no screen scroll. They obviously haven't played the game, which is why I included those pics.

With the fix, the magnet has been moved to the left of the bird, where you can now get it.

I uninstalled then reinstalled where magnet was moved and I could now get it and also got the mirror.

PS Did not have to replay up to the point I was stuck at.
