I can't rotate puzzle pieces

[Post New]by prepare2fly on Mar 5, 15 3:43 AM
Hey everyone,

I have a MacBook Pro and I am playing the demo for this game and I can't "right click" to rotate puzzle pieces. I've never had a problem with other games figuring out how to rotate anything. I've tried everything. Can anyone help?....Thanks

Is it the puzzle on the door with a lion head, a snake head and another animal, if yes, you don't have to right click anything.

Hi prepare2fly,

"LEFT" clicking, to rotate the puzzle pieces, worked for me.

Mac OS X Yosemite

Are the chimeras puzzle in the pink, yellow or gold, then green from left to right? That's the order I have and nothing is happening?

That's correct - I had two of the lion out of order!!

I'm on a PC and I can't rotate the pieces for the first puzzle in the cemetery either. That's a glitch that should have been worked out in the beta testing. Guess I won't buy this game. Very disappointing.

Sometimes when you have to rotate pieces for a jigsaw, you have to lift it off the surface with a left click then rotate with the right click. This is what I did and it worked for me. Hope it does for you. Cheers.

I was stuck there too, but thanks so much Tartanpimpernel. That's exactly what I had to do to get the jigsaw pieces to rotate.

On a PC. Tried everything with this jigsaw puzzle and nothing worked. Not left click, not lift and click (which was impossible, BTW), not right click. I had looked forward to this game and the sale, but no joy here. It's going in the trash.

Hi. I was having the same problem, so I tried setting the mouse buttons in System preferences (Mac) so that there is a button 1 (primary), button 2 (secondary), button 3 and button 4. I set mine so button 1 was on the lefthand side, button 2 was on the righthand side, 3 was at the top and 4 were on the sides. In this case button 2 rotated the puzzle pieces and button 1 set them in place.
I'm using Mac OS 10.9.5 and this worked for me.

I wasn't able to rotate the puzzle pieces either and I set my Mac mouse buttons like deedah001 recommended. It worked! Thanks deedah001!

I'm on a Mac Yosemite (10.10.2) and don't use a mouse. I can't left-click or right-click to rotate and I can't hold it with the left then try to right-click. I'm hoping that when I go back into the game it will miraculously work.

If using the Mac trackpad, then you need to do the gesture analogous to right-click. It's called Secondary Click in the Mac System Preferences. For example, on mine, I tap with two fingers to open right-click menus and that also rotated the puzzle pieces.

Thanks to deedah001, I went to look up mouse settings, despite not having a mouse, and was able to work it out from there.

Hope that helps!
