Hot Spot Glitches

[Post New]by bribling on Nov 23, 09 4:07 AM
I am having a hard time with Hot Spots. In some cases I had to click multiple times to finally activate the HSes. The two worst spots were:

The loading dock where you need to clip a coat hanger. I could not activate the HS that allows you to play the HOG that gives you the coat hanger. I had to quit and replay the scene 3 times before that spot finally activated and I was able to move on.

The Bus. I am stuck there now. I cannot activate the HS on the seat with the jacket and thus cannot get the gum and move on. I contacted CS and surprisingly received instructions from them late Saturday night! Wow! I thought I'd have to wait until Monday. I was given detailed instructions on a fix for this. When I played, the game started over and did not used the saved game so I had to play all the way to the bus again. This time the hanger HS worked fine which made me hopeful. When I got to the bus, however, the Hot Spot with the gum still will not activate no matter what I do.

I guess i am through playing. I got so close to the end too. I really did enjoy this game and hope that maybe at some point a fix will be offered for it.

BTW, I am playing with a PC and Vista SP2.

Everything worked fine for me except I had to back track because I forgot
some items. I went to the Northside Mall Loading Bay because I needed the
light blub and I know I did click on it in clicking on the items it did not put it in
my inventory Now i cannot get it I have been all over the screen trying and it
just won't work so it must be a glitch and tech needs to take care of the
problem.

I cannot get the gum/jacket hotspot on the bus, either. And now I am going to hesitate to call to get the fix, because I do not want to go all the way through the game again for a fix that didn't work for you!

Me too! I am near the end of the game. I cannot get the hotspot to come up in the subway tunnel. I can get the bench, where it tells me I can not lossen the bolt by hand, but can't get the inventory to get the wrench, etc.

I also agree, this one was too easy, the only challenge was getting around the glitches.

I'm almost to the end also, and can't figure out how to get the bench up with no tool. No hot spot pops up to allow me to look for a tool. Am I missing something?


Never mind. Found a rubber mat below the subway car. Use it to get the wrench out of the subway.

I, too, have the bus glitch. I'm wondering as well - call - then start over - phooey! I have gotten through a lot of games without glitches, but recently have encountered more than I'd like. Too bad - easy game, but sometimes those hit the spot - but not the hot spot this time.

Has anyone been able to get the hot spot #2 to open in the sewers? I get the first one, but the second one just will not open up!
