Carter house disappeared

How do you get back to the Carter brothers house? After using the gris-gris on them I got to their house but don't remember how. Took picture of red anomaly and pushed button to go back to the developing room. After developing the picture I used the map instead of walking back. Now I'm stuck! I guess I shouldn't have used the map that time. Can anyone figure this out for me? I would be so grateful if you could. Enjoying this game very much. A lot of fun and great puzzles! Also their house isn't showing up on the map. I'm going to start from the beginning. This time I'll back out instead of using the map. Will let you know if it works right this time in case anyone else did the same as me the first time or to alert someone not to do what I did.

Same problem too - I don't want to start over. I can get back to the Carter house using the map, but it is all boarded up again and I no longer have any tool to open it up.

Same problem. I went to develop that picture for the secret room, then opened the map and couldn't find the Carter's house. So I used the map to travel to the street and can't enter the house, now. Doesn't show up on the map. How did this get missed in testing?

Darn--was hoping someone had the solution. I, too, mistakenly used the map and can't get back. Do we all really have to start over--and so close to the end???

I posted our problem in the technical section. Hopefully, someone will read it and add the Carter's house to the map. Let's hope!

how do we get back to carters house after we develop the picture it is not on the map and all the hint says nothing to do here

If I remember correctly after you develop the picture the house opens by itself. So if you use the map it won't take you back when the door is open. Sorry to say but I think you have to start over.
Chrissybabe48 there is a red arrow that appears after the picture is developed where the camera flash was before you developed the photo. Just press that and it will bring you to the place you need to be.

so if you do not use the red arrow to go back then you have to start the game all over again. That is something I am not looking to do so I will have to just wait until they fix this or I just spent 13.99 on a game that I will not play. I liked the game but do not want to go all the way to the beginning again. Hope they fix it soon.

Did you try going back to the Carter House by just leaving the hotel by going out the door of the room? it has been a while since I played the beginning, but, if I remember correctly after developing the photo you have to go to the Carter House by using the navigation arrows that show up at either the bottom of the screen (to back out of the scene).....or at doors....and sometimes in the center of a scene....
BUT, the map doesn't work until Madam Rosalie marks Beatrice Lafort's house on the Map......if I remember correctly

There is a particular sequence that has to played out after you go to the hotel.
First you unpack the suitcase and develop the photo.

Then the scene in the room where the door is "blown shut" and the Carter's are briefly seen in the mirror.......followed by a HOG......and getting the manager to let you out of your room.

oh, and if you haven't been.....read her journal, there is a lot of extra info there.

PS......the camera with its bulb to go to the darkroom, and the red arrow to return to a scene? I don't think it works until after you reach the cemetery, but, I could be wrong....although I remember I kept trying to take photos at each new scene, including one of Madam Rosalie.....and her cat....which I kept trying to pet.

Tookat is right the arrow button doesn't work in the beginning of the game.
Before anyone restarts the game. Follow tookat's advice about leaving the hotel room first. I never used the map once the arrow shows up. That just might work.
Sorry if I misled anyone on this problem.
Good luck everyone!!!

No, going out the hotel room door just takes you to the boarded up version of the Carter house. The game-makers need to make the opened-up Carter house appear on the map once a player has entered it the first time.

when you finish developing photo from shed DO NOT walk down... let the description of photo go away and in upper right is the 'X' to close the scene, you will return to the shed.
I had to start game over ... each time you develop a photo you canj close the scene with the 'X' and return to where you took photo.

So nobody has a solution? I'm stuck in a circle where every place I go says " Nothing to do here." How can I get out of this and enter the Carter house?

After starting the game over an developed the picture of the Carter House, I clicked on the light bulb next to the camera and was right back at the house.
