I got to the end of the game with the relics, and have no sunflower seeds. I had put the coins in the vending machine, but never got the seeds. Now I am stuck at the game's end and don't know what to do. I went back to look again for more coins, but put three into the machine. I did them as I collected them, not all at once. Would that have made a difference?

That wouldn't make a difference. Been a while since I played, but I believe you need to pull (click) on the button for the seeds. It won't vend automatically.

Also, I never got the "Felix Puzzle" from the museum office. It wasn't there unless I missed a step in the walk-through. I've tried the game on 2 different names tho, so I have 2 games going and this is the place I've gotten stuck on both of them.

These 2 places are where I"m stuck and I can't go forward in the game unless I get them I guess.




I am having the same problem..no matter how many times I try I just cant get the chips to come up. Anybody got any anwsers?

Hey WhiteBubba!

Which version are you playing? The chips (as well as the rabbit head) are one of the extra features in the Collector's Edition and they aren't supposed to come up in the Standard Version. Their only purpose is to lead the player to a tangent bonus area, so you can skip this task (no matter which version you're playing) and it will have absolutely no effect on the actual game.

Good luck!

I posted on the "Collection Edition of Dire Grove" and that was a mistake. I love the game but have a problem in that I don't get the morphing items. I bought Dire Grove as a two game pack and wonder if that is why the Mysterious Morphing objects don't appear. Also, the second time you need to go to the lodge there is supposed to be a hidden object game at the fireplace and you need to pick up some potatoe chips. That hidden object game does not appear. That means that later I don't have the chips when I need them. Can anyone help.
Thank you

Welcome to the pond, flipsing & Magnolia!

Flipsing: To solve this puzzle, you need to look at your crime computer (where you played the video tapes) to see how the relics should be arranged on the stone wall. The placement is random for each game, and the journal gives an example of one possible solution.

Magnolia: The morphing objects, potato chips, and rabbit head are all extras in the Collector's Edition. They're just tangent bonus features, so you can simply skip these tasks and it will have no effect on properly completing the game ... I'm unfamiliar with the 2-Game pack, so I can't tell you if you were supposed to get the Collector's Edition versus the Standard Version, but if you feel like you should have the CE and got ripped off (or something), I suggest contacting Customer Support by clicking the on the right side of the page.

Good luck to both of you!!!

Thaw the meat in the microwave in the basement.
You are on your way.

Welcome to the pond, Tricia!

Make sure you're copying the pattern from your crime computer (and its 4x4 grid of video tapes). The solution is random, so getting it from your journal or a strategy guide won't be any help.

Good luck!!!

After reading the walkthrough, I found out that I chopped the wood and started the fire TOO SOON. That means that I can't get the cell phone charger, and that means I can't finish the game. Is there anything I can do now, or do I have to start the game all over?

I am stuck stuck stuck. I got the kerosene from the store, but when I went to fill the lamp it was gone. Really gone, I used the back and forth arrows on my inventory and it's just. Gone. Have been back to the store, the basement, the museum, the farm, everywhere multiple times and can't figure out where the kerosene went. Help? Please? Thanks in advance...

 

Thanks newcomer for info on the mercury.. Could not and never would have found it.

Please could you tell me what the name of the prequel game is to this. Apparently this is a lead on from a previous game. Could you tell me which game please. Thank you

prequel - game immediately before
sequel - game immediately after.

Return to Ravenhearst was the prequel to Dire Grove.
