Energy Beam/Magnet Puzzle Problems

[Post New]by GameLvr30 on Jan 9, 10 6:15 PM
I was having an awful time during the energy beam/magnet puzzle near the end of the game. I would try to get the magnets into place but my cursor would not go where I wanted it to. It was like I was trying to push my cursor through molasses. I really hate even using hints in games so I did not want to be forced to skip this puzzle. Well I figured out a solution that worked for me, so I thought I would post it for anyone else experiencing this same issue.

I went into the menu options and changed my cursor from the default custom one to the hardware version and I unchecked the widescreen button (I was playing with that button checked). Once I did those two things I was able to play the mini-game just fine and move the magnets into place without fighting my cursor. Hope that helps anyone who is having this same problem!

Thanks GameLvr30! I was having the same problem and checked here to see if anyone else was too. I'll try your solution next time through.

I also had problems with this section. It wasn't so much like moving the cursor through molasses. It was more that the cursor was uncontrollable. In the end I had to skip this puzzle, something I don't like doing.

I was already using the hardware cursor. I'd already had problems with the custom cursor.

Ah, well. At least I managed to complete the game.
