Mother's Locket

[Post New]by djones55 on Aug 9, 14 4:23 PM
I'm playing on an iMac and cannot give the girl or the policeman in the van the locket....SG wasn't much help...game seems to have lots of glitches...should be retested and re-released. Any ideas on how to give the locket to either girl or policeman?

As far as I remember you just hand it to her. If that doesn't work perhaps you need to zoom in!

It a terrific game, I hope you get it to work!

Finished the game + bonus chapter, and did NOT experience any of the "so called" glitches!

Playing on an early 2009 iMac, running OS X Mavericks. It's a bit slow, but gets the job done very nicely.

Playing on Windows, and can't give the locket to the child either. Practically flung it at her, no go. Can't zoom in, nothing. Nice game.

Replayed the segment to see exactly what to look for when giving back the child's locket.
When holding the curser close to the child, the curser changes to rotating gears. That's the hot-spot (sort of speak), where you hand her back the locket. Same curser scenario throughout the game.

Same bug with handing over the locket.
Impossible, no spot/gears anywhere, very annoying; forced to start over as this bug makes a progression block.

Is a patch/fix coming?

I'm having issues with this on my 2012 MacBook Pro running Mavericks. I entered the mother's name correctly, then that part of the room is occupied by a red cushion which I cannot make go away. Can't make progress as I have no locket. Not happy.

Same here. Started the game over, uninstalled it, re-installed it, but still can't give the locket. This means I can't continue the game.......

I am having problems also giving Jessie the locket. I re installed the game but the same thing happens. There doesn't seem to be an update for this problem. What can be done about this problem?

I, too, cannot give the Mother's Locket to Jessie. I am playing on a Windows Vista system. I tried to go to the next step mentioned in the SG, but apparently, once the locket is given to Jessie, the player receives something related to the next step because I couldn't do the next step (press the pedals above the fireplace in the living room). That means I can't continue to play the game at all I'm sooo bummed, I was really enjoying this game. I hope a fix will come along (or if one already has and I just don't realize it, tell me

Same issue, can not give the girl the locket. I also tried uninstalling and reinstall, did nothing to assist. I too was enjoying the game so this is really frustrating. On the "post technical issues" in the forum for this game. There was a posting that this was being worked on but that was so many days ago and still no resolution.

Same problem, can't get rid of the necklace and can't go farther. Deleted and reinstalled - no change. Would it help to restart the game from the beginning?

I started the game again with a different name and it worked.

I have had the same issue. This is clearly a major issue and I am shocked nothing has been done. Given the multitude of posts about glitches, this game should be withdrawn and full refunds given. I am furious.

I had the same problem too, but I started a new game under a different name as it was suggested, also I didn't play the hard setting like the first time. Maybe it has something to do with the setting. The bad part is you cant go back and change to hard once you pass the locket so you have to keep playing with sparklers, takes some of the suspense from it. Kind of a waste of time to.

Same problem. I have the locket, the girl is drinking her never-ending hot cocoa, the policeman keeps asking if I found the locket and to search the castle for it so many times I'm surprised he hasn't called me a horrible "detective" yet!

I'm playing on windows 8.1, I had trouble giving the locket to the girl at first. I uninstalled the game, reinstalled it signed in the game with a different name and played the first section again, this time I was able to give the locket to Jessie. It was a pain in the **** having to play the game over again but I was enjoying it to much to not give it a go and risk losing the chance at not finishing the game at all. good luck guys.
