The strategy guide is in your inventory. It is the book on the far left.

Did you press the enter button on your computer after entering the code?

The shapes on the gate are very important! Each key will only work on one certain keyhole. Go back to the painting to find out which key goes in which keyhole and which way your key should be oriented.

Sounds like your numerals are incorrect. If any of the numerals on the map run vertically, you may have written them down backwards. For instance, IX could also be XI. You can see which one of your numerals is incorrect by noting when the buttons on the cannon above the I, V, X buttons depress or don't depress. If your numeral is correct, one of the buttons will depress - when you enter an incorrect numeral all of the buttons will reset. Then you know that one was incorrect.

Of course I hit the enter button and even tried to click the lock several times. Nothing works. I really don't want to have to start over since I'm almost to the end. Any other suggestion?

Seems nobody has another suggestion, and I'm at a loss. A lot of people actually did not hit the enter button on their own keyboard, so it was a reasonable question.

The new build of this game purports to fix troubles with entering the code on the computer. If you have an older version of the game you could try uninstalling and reinstalling. You shouldn't lose your game progress.

I have had the same problem, redownloaded after several weeks to see if it would clear up, I can't pick up the piece of map that is in the dog dish. I've tried different players, still didn't make a difference, I can get every piece of the map except for that one. I haven't seen anyone else with this problem. Help????

You both have a very old version. This is a glitch that was fixed on the day of release. You need to either go to your game manager and download an update, or just uninstall and reinstall the newest version. You shouldn't lose your game progress either way.

[b]Anybody have trouble not having the flint in the extra play? I know the walkthrough says you get it from a hidden object puzzle but I've done that already and I don't have it. Is there another I am not finding? I've been on both ships and gone everywhere that is possible to go. Except getting into the original cabin. Need that name to enter.

Ok, might sound silly, but did you scroll all the way through your inventory? Sometimes you have more pages than you think. The flint looks like a black rock.

So far I haven't found any posts from anyone reporting a loss of the flint. That's why I'm thinking maybe you actually have it. Or you didn't play the right HOG.

I can't get the password to work. Everytime I enter the password and then clock on the enter button it clears it out.

Help!!

Hello -- I purchased the game on 12/3 and am close to finishing it but cannot get the fourth coin to get me to the 13th skull. Initially, the shovel dug a small hole, but I had to stop the game and when I came back the magnifying glass shows there are holes everywhere but I can't find a coin and cannot dig a new hole. I read that there was a newer version so I deleted the game and reinstalled it tonight (12/19) but it took me to the same place with the same problem as before. How can I get to the 4th coin? Thanks for your help!
