SPOILER: Bug with 225BC (Minotaur)

[Post New]by Elkestra on May 1, 10 2:22 AM
I'm loving this game so far, but I've run into a game-stopping glitch. When I released the bird from the cage, it didn't drop the feather (and the hint system has decided that room is now 'complete')

Checking the walkthrough, it talks of unlocking the cage before putting the mouse on the floor.

Since I was trying to figure things out on my own, I ended up putting the mouse on the floor before I found the key and unlocking the cage. I'm not sure if that's what caused the glitch, but its possible.

I'd happily re-play the game and check, but unfortunately I've only 10 mins left of the demo, and I won't have a credit to use for a couple of weeks, so for now all I can give is the potential warning.

And thank you for that! also for posting it with the spoiler warning and separately, and the issue so well-formulated. I'll be careful when getting there (or wait a bit whether that 'time' becomes a show stopper for more).

I've got the same problem. I put the mouse down before I unlocked the cage - no feather. Like Elkestra, I'm going to start the game from the beginning again (I've bought it) and I don't really mind because it's a great game but it is a shame that this bug has arisen.

Hi Guys, sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this, not sure what is causing it but you definitely should open the cage first and then place the mouse on the floor.

Thanks Elkestra for posting this tip!

Meh. Exact same thing happened to me. No wonder I couldn't find any feathers then! Tried unlocking the cage before I found the cheese to lure out the mouse, but that didn't work at that time, so...

Ah well, over we start.


/strilf, over and out

Hi fishies...it's nice to see i'm not the only one with that "feather" problem...darn..hate to start the game all over but guess i'll have to. I sure hope they fix the "bug" so it won't matter which came first...the mouse or the bird..lol

The bug is right.....first open the cage, then place the mouse, and the feather is there .

Now this is VERY irritating. Logic would dictate placing the bait *before* opening the cage (so, being logical, that's what I did), and this is a little late in a fairly mediocre game to have to start from the beginning.

I don't like this one bit.

Seriously, y'all are very magnanimous about this. "Oh? Start from the beginning? Okay, that's fine!" No. It is not fine. It is shoddy programming.

I saw one suggestion to uninstall and reinstall but that did not work for me. I don't particularly want to start over
