Tire tube

[Post New]by paula331 on Apr 15, 10 10:47 AM
Hi all, I'm at the part where she has to find the leak in the tire tube, and when I get to the fountain to put in the tire tube, she talking about not taking anymore coins, or something like that. Not sure how to do this, any suggestions? Thanks, Paula

Hi, I'm having the same problem onlyI can get her to say "here's the leak" but I can't get her to use the pen to mark it. I have the walkthrough and have followed it step by step and even gone back to my last save place and started again but she says this won't work or these items don't match and won't mark the darn tube !! Can anyone help me please !! Thanks

I searched for some solutions to the tire tube situation, and I learned that filling the tire tube at the fountain and marking the hole with the marker has to be done before time runs out. Try that. I'll let you know how I did.

It works. Get it all done before the time runs out. Make Nicole run to the fountain.

OMG, I have never had such frustration before, and that includes spraying wasps/bees in Nancy Drew games and whacking elves in RTR. This blasted tire tube tops them all. I am embarrassed to say that I have tried this over eighteen times (stop laughing). After you attach the tube to the compressor and it is filled, the hourglass goes and goes so you can't pick it up to hustle to the fountain. Unfortunately, the clock has started and also goes and goes leaving me clicking the (blank) out of my mouse button trying to grab the filled tube! It is already 1/2 over before I can grab it and run to fountain. I have gotten to the part where Nicole says she sees where the leak/hole is, but then by the time her dialog clears so I can grab the marker, the tube is back in inventory flat and air-free. Or maybe I should drop the tube into the fountain and immediately select the marker before her dialog where she says she sees where the leak is? GRRRRR! Can this by skipped somehow? After say, twenty tries does the game have a pity party and slow the clock or bypass? Please? I also tried the esc key to rush through the hourglass or clear her dialog when she 'finds the leak' so I can see the inventory to grab the darn marker, but it just takes me to the main menu. Maybe it's a sign that I should cut my losses, save the game and exit. I really liked this game before now. Maybe I should ask my nine yr old to set down the PS3 controller and do this part for me. No worries, there's no blood or gore in this part, I clearly have eye/hand coordination issues. Any advice would be appreciated.

You put the marker onto the tube in your inventory (before the time runs out)

I am new to this so this may sound like a stupid question but how do I get her to run or move faster because she takes forever to get to the fountain (the time is already up). Please help!!!!

To get Nicole to move faster ... double-click on the destination.

When you get to the fountain, click the tube into the fountain. Then she says "there's the hole." The tube should be back in inventory. Click the pen & then click on the tube.

IT WORKED!!! Thank you soooo much! Do you even know how fustrated I was getting. It makes me so mad when you acctually know what to do but for some stupid reason you can't get the task completed. Hopefully this will help someone else who is having trouble because without your help I would have never figured it out.

Ok MoMaverick since you were able to help me before maybe you can help me again. I am trying to open the safe and it keeps telling me that the door is blocked and I have even checked the walkthrough (I did everything word for word to check). What am I doing wrong.

help me too please!! when I go back to the compressor and fill the tire, I run Nicole back to the fountain but the tire is already wet. Do I have to start over? I click the pen and tire before the clock runs out, but nothing happens.
This is very frustrating!!

I've read the walkthroughs and all the advice here, but here is my problem: even if I have time to spare, the moment the tyre is returned to inventory, the clock disappears and I can't mark the hole. Is this just a glitch? I've done this, like, twenty times and on several occasions I've had time to spare, but always the same, the clock disappears as soon as the tyre returns to inventory.

So frustrating, as I really want to complete this game and there is no override for this stupid task!

well luckily I had no problems. As soon as I inflated the tire and got it, I double clicked to get her to run. Put tube in fountain. As soon as it went into inventory, I marked it with the marker.

Welcome to the pond all you new fishies!!!

I'm not quiet sure I understand?? I haven't heard of anyone else having any glitches within the game.

Here's step by step solution. Hope it helps.

->Switch on compressor
->Attach the tube to the pistol on the ground and see it fill then deflate... "has hole"
-> Fill tube with air again.
-> Quickly take inflated tube, pull back and RUN (double clicking) to the fountain.
-> Place tube in fountain "see hole".
-> Tube is back in inventory
-> In inventory click felt tip pen on tire to get "marked hole in tube" (tube should now have a blue mark on it)
-> This ALL needs to be done BEFORE timer runs out! -> Go back to garage and talk to Raul about marked hole in tube.
