Solution for fingerprints

[Post New]by Rebeca_Lily on Jun 19, 14 5:45 AM
Thanks to DD, I managed to solve almost immediately the problem.

When you begin to use the brush, DON'T make clicks - hold your finger on the mouse and move around (without leaving the down-mouse position). After some seconds, you will receive a message to continue the game.

Then, click on the hint, and put the wrench in the place the hint shows you.

Happy gaming...

Ditto - my finger went to sleep but the darn fingerprints didn't appear, nor did the kit disappear. What a pain. This seems to be a fun game. Hate to get stalled right away.

So sorry, I entered-exited many times in the game, so I didn't notice the beginning of using the brush - it stood there until I came here to check for any tip...

So, the fingerprint set appears after you get some "triangle" object on the grate. Click on it, and the set will appear on your bottom-left side of the screen.

But, you have to click on the set more than once, until you see inside the set a bottle going up and filling the "soup-like" bowl in the set, the set now goes up, and you get the brush, after it is ready for use.

This procedure returns each time you have to check fingerprints... I don't like it too, and would ask the programmers to make my life easier...it's pity to throw away a whole game for one irritating and redundant action. Time is money?...

Now continue as I wrote above, left mouse keeps all the time down (no clicks), and passing all the area.

Hope it helps, and the company will make some more easy way in the future.

The actual Fingerprint Tool, is on the bottom left of the screen.
You have to click on the tool to use it, the other is just the icon that tells you that you need the special tool.

Once you click the tool, use in on the grate and everywhere around the grate until the detective makes her comment about the miscreant.

Re:Solution dusting for fingerprints or I'd rather do windows

Ok I've exited in and out of the game; I've even entered and exited out of the fingerprinting kit; I've deleted the game and then reinstalled it.

I'm still dusting dusting and more dusting; personally I'd rather do windows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is obviously a glitch in the game so the developers need to get this FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've sent this issue to Tech support, but then came to this forum and I tried the fix by not clicking but holding down the button and scrolling over the grate several times until all fingerprints appear.

It worked BUT you also have to scroll OUTSIDE the box containing the grate in order for the game to continue; you should hear the detective's voice solving the mystery of how the man and bird died.

I too liked this game until I got to the fingerprinting. I haven't purchased the game though.

Once you have the fingerprint tool (left hand of screen) you have to dust all around the grate and in the grate, but you need to keep it up until you have BOTH full handprints on the wall outside the grate, AND the detective speaks about the suspect.

I too thought it was a problem with the game when I got to this part then I checked the forum to see if others were having the same problem. It turns out there are quite a few. I followed the instructions given and it turns out I was the one with the problem, not the game. When you click in to the grate you are not getting the actual fingerprint tool but a silhouette of the tool. Click in the bottom left of your screen next to the map and the tool will come up, click again and the brush comes out then go around the grate and outside of the grate to get the fingerprints to appear.

so I downloaded the update for the game and finally able to finish the game, but the bonus game had the same problems with the fingerprint kit. Can't finish that part to move on. Very frustrating...

can anyone suggest a solution for getting the cannon after you outline it with the fingerprinting kit? I don't see anyone else having this difficulty so it must be me. thanks pattio

Hi pattiornot,

After you have outlined the cannon picture, back out to where the table saw was. It is on the right hand side by docks (to right side where you played the hos). Place the outline on the board to cut it out. Hope this help, Good Luck.

Nope. Covered the whole area around the grate until my finger went to sleep. Not only do I get nothing, I can't even close the window to keep going. Uninstalling/reinstalling didn't help. Game is hung up.
