can't find the ant

[Post New]by tarbarme on Sep 17, 09 4:18 AM
Its an ok game to me. I'm already stuck on trying to find an ant to take its picture. The zoom lens on the camera is blurry at best and can't see that ant. The hint radar thing gives a general area and I still can't find it. Sorries if this is in the wrong area of the forum for this.
Thanks.

From memory the ant is towards bottom of screen over to the right.
Sorry cannot be more specific.

The ant is close to the fire pit but the camera won't drop far enough to snap the picture! What now?

There were a couple of pictures where I had to move 1/2 the camera off the edge of the frame to get the picture.

The camera viewfinder goes away when it is lowered to where the ant is located. It won't take a picture!!

Found the ant (I think) but since the camera now zooms the entire square has turned a pale blue, only the bottom right hand corner is visible. Have tried to exit and then come back on. The blue left once but camera would not let me take the picture. Logged back on this morning and it is blue again. HELP.

SAME THING. I CAN'T FIND THE ANT. THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE VIEWFINDER ON THE CAMERA TURNS PALE BLUE.IT WON'T LET YOU SNAP A PIC OF ANYTHING. WHERE IS THE ANT. EVERYTIME THE RADAR SCANS, IT'S IN A DIFFERENT PLACE. IS THIS NORMAL? rcbolle@charter.net

Found the ant as everyelse did and as everyone else the camera won't take the picture, it has to go down to close to the bottom frame, then disappears. Like the game but can't proceed. What's with this?

Came back to game, still can't get camera to stay framed and take picture. Guess I will try to let Big Fish explain this to me. I will post if I find out anything from them.

The hint for that was nowhere NEAR the firepit....I was randomly clicking on every bit of dark dirt for ages in the hint area. Couldn't find it. Clicked hint again & this time it was close enough to the firepit so that I found it almost instantly. The hints in this aren't real accurate

Can't take a pic of the ant either. BIG waste of money. Just wish I had gotten this far in the free trial. Never would have purchased this game. Don't waste your time! Twenty huge thumbs down. Now that I've gotten that off my chest, does anyone know how to get around this?

I'm like everyone else. I found the ant but the camera won't work. Has Big Fish given anyone an answer on how to take the picture?

I have posted a video on youtube of taking a picture of the ant in my game. Perhaps if you watch the video you will be able to see if your game is or is not working properly. On youtube search for Lost City of Z ant.

I played in Full Screen mode and I don't have a widescreen monitor. If you are playing in windowed mode you might try changing to full screen mode to see if that makes any difference.

Good luck!

Finally found how to photograph the ant. Picked up the camera and dragged it over the fire site, then moved down rapidly clicking my mouse as I went right over the top of the ant never stopping. It took a couple of trys before the ant ran. I constantly kept clicking the mouse. Give it a try.
