We are playing in Bellows Manor, Paris, Venice and TOK.
Tom the Photographer shows up in Bellows Manor.

Edited to add: ...and we also have to play in Japan!

The dragon needs 24500 and you have only 35 times to feed!
You can play for 3h 50min.
For the first artifact I needed 2, 3, 1, 1 and 3 searches. The 2. artifact was harder, here I needed 3,5,4,6 and 3 searches.

I had some difficulties with the game while playing, I don't know if this was specific for this exploration or not: twice the game hung itself up after the search, once there were no things shown in the "Need to find" boxes, and in one exploration I had 4 pieces in these boxes (like in dismantled mode, but not clickable) and 1 box where the item to find appeared (but I had to reload the game after this too).

The room is quite nice, but difficult. There are several things that are tiny and hard to find, but not all the things.

I won't take the chest yet to get some more dragon food.

nixe, I'm having the same problem. I'm still in the middle of it but I tried Google Chrome but it's still acting weird. Had to buy one piece, the trouble seems to be in Shadow mode.

Yes me too, the game has hung at the end a few times and I have had to reload the scene. Now i have had objects coming up in the 1st 2 slots only, the rest are dismantled pieces. And I was playing in shadows. This time the whole game crashed. I think there might be a few bugs!

'Gazebo of Mysteries' and 'Watermill' are good sources for 'Photoplates'
- needed for 'Photographer Tom' at 'The Bellows Manor', to obtain the 'Polarization Filter'.
Drop rate: nearly 5 out of 6 (1 round), plus ghost modes.

Yes please Mods, do something about it.
I just entered the room and i'm not being able to play.
I hope you can extend it to compensate for the lost time.
Thank You

Gadgets don't work. Nothing works.
I'm losing the talismans I activated to explore the room.
What a waste.

Is it actually worth trying to get into the room?

It sounds very buggy, from discussions here. I'd hate to waste my time (um....yes, I see the irony in that) and stuff.... I am now needing the bits from helping the photographer on my property and on friends. I'd hate to spend coins or gems doing so if the quest simply doesn't work....

I don't know if it's worth it but the solution lasted for a very short time.
I was able to complete the room peacefully two or three times in a row and after that everything went back to how it was.

Ok, can we make a list on what browsers and OS we're working on?

I've not yet tried getting in, but I'm on a Mac with Chrome (though could try other browsers if necessary).

Is there a pattern to which browsers/devices are problematic? Or is it just a sucky quest?

I enjoy the quest and I'm almost done with it. I have 45 minutes left to find the last artifact.

I'm using Chrome and the game seems to be more stable now.

I'm on Firefox. It's fine for me - never change a running system.
As of forum replies, Dhrome works best.

Quests related to exp. suck in shadow mode

Items are tiny (very tiny). Hard work for people with eye problems.
Once you know, where items hide, it's as easy/hard as other ones

Hope this helps

This quest is pretty much unplayable in Shadows mode, and with the Ghost, too, until you treat the megaphone as the problem.

As others have said, there are serious issues, and I found that if you try to refresh the game, it only gets worse. You might get a blank square, or you might find all the items, but the clock still continues, and counts you out. If you refresh, you might then get several blank squares, and gadgets that won't work. And it just gets worse after that.

After spending 75 gems to bring each miserable search to a close, I found that the megaphone seems to be the problem. If, in Shadows mode, you get a white square, or the game won't finish, click on the megaphone. However, you have to leave it until last. If you click on it before reaching the last item, the whole game will freeze.

That's what I found, anyway (or what tygertyger found), and I hope it helps others.

Forgive my ignorance....but what's the megaphone? Is that a search item?

Sorry, Matty - clarity of thought has disappeared after that quest. I just want to jump up and down on someone's head...

Yes, the megaphone is one of the items for which you will be searching in this quest. It looks pretty much the same as the one on the police building quest (forgotten its name) - white with a blue edge.
