Panning for gold

[Post New]by nypitterpat on May 1, 09 5:35 PM
I would like to know how long it takes before you get the gold dust. I have had to hold the mouse for over 5 minutes and still nothing happens. Could anyone tell me how long I have to wait. Thanks very much.

Not long at all. You hold the left button down and then shimmy quick side to side. The pan will eventually catch up with you.

I am having the same problem about not being able to get the gold dust. I have held the left mouse button down & waited and waited and waited. Still nothing. Any other suggestions?

Other players who have had various problems with the game have indicated that it helps to exit the game and then go back into it.

I am having the same problem. I have gone in/out 6 times and still NOTHING. I even started the game over and had no problems until I got to pan for gold. I am thinking it would be easier to pull it off my computer than continuing to pull out my hair. HELP!

Has anyone figured out how to get out of the panning for gold? I have tried numerous times - getting in and out of the game and still stuck.

I found the answer - it just takes a lot of movement right and left with the mouse and finally the pan will start to move very fast. Move very quickly at first.

If you just wait, you will be there forever. You have to shake the pan vigorously from side to side. You do that by quickly sweeping the mouse from right to left with the button held down.

How long do you have to hold down the button and move the mouse side to side? I've been moving the cursor back and forth for over 3 minutes and the pan moves side to side, but the movement never seems to get faster.

I too was stuck panning for gold, but, combined two of the suggestions and was done in no time.I first closed the game completely and re-opened it, then I just held the mouse button down and moved it back and forth rapidly across the whole pan and sure enough the pan did "catch up" and cleared to the gold dust. I repeated the whole process.Closed the game completely repeated the rapid wide movements and there was the golden branch. I couldn't have been happier if I had discovered real gold at that point. Don't give up!

I was hoping for a better solution.

I did go out and back in, and it worked as far as getting the gold dust, but no matter how many times I go out and back in, reboot the computer, whatever, I can't get the golden branch.

This is my second SS game, and I thought I'd get them all, but this is really ticking me off and I don't think I'll be buying more if this is the kind of junk I have to go through.

My hand is killing me!

Just move your hand back and forth left to right horizontally and it sifts through in less than a minute as you would make a swinging motion using a sifter, was really fun, not any glitch here.

Me too, my hand just fell off after trying to get the damn gold for almost an hour.
why anyone wants to turn at perfectly good puzzle game into an action game, is beyond me. No more Samantha swift for me

I discovered if I use hint button it will shake the pan vigirously for you. Hope this works for you. I am stuck in another place in game and it will not work no matter what I do. some one needs to fix this game as thre is alot of complaints.
