Hooray! And on Anders' birthday, too! Congratulations, guys.
That was me, by the way. I didn't realize my comment would be published as unknown, but it makes sense seeing how I haven't set up a Blogger account.Hooray!
Thank you, Ritche!Have a great day as well!Cheers, - a
not sending any mail notification to last year's bundle purchasers is kinda lame. anyway, good to see more of the dream machine.
Kan dere vær så snill å gi meg et hint?? Jeg er helt stuck når det kommer til bloody mary drinken. Har forstått at blod er den siste ingrediensen, men skjønner ikke hvordan jeg skal skaffe det...
Can't work out how to get the third bit of hidden note. I've spent all afternoon trying everything and think I might go insane..... aside from that, what a fantastic game!
ENDELIG fikk jeg det til, takk! Fantastisk spill :)
Can't find a way to get rid of Nine...
Ok Ok done...this chapter is quite hard! :P
I still can't find the last bit of note - I've think I've tried every frequency and every place to stand and not just the ones from the napkin - what am I doing wrong? Please help!
*** Minor Spoiler ***The notes are one for every frequency listed in the napkin. I suggest a meticolous search for every of the frequencies ;)
Loving the game so far, but really can't work out the last ingredient for the Bloody Mary. Feel like I've tried everything!!
Also can't figure out the last ingredient (tomato), or how to get rid of 9. Hm, quite a bit harder than the first 2 chapters! Must be getting rusty...
Well, I've spent several hours searching every spot on the boat for that last frequency's note and still can't find it. I guess I'll have to give up. :((Before that I also spent a few hours trying to alter the radio to work at lower frequencies as to my eyes the right hand number on the napkin looks like it says 24).
arrgh!!! today the radio goes from 24 to 30! It seems I wasted most of yesterday on a game bug.It took me less than 30 seconds to find the final note today.I still love the game but I very nearly want mad with it yesterday.
So the radio keeps resetting to 26.5 whenever I turn it to 24. Is this a bug or does it work as intended?
E-mail notification to bundle purchasers will be sent out, don't worry.The reset to 26.5 is one of the bugs I'll fix today. New files will be up soon.
I am experiencing a bug that won't let me move out of the bar. Can you help with this? :(
I wonder if, after climbing the rope back up it really ends in an endless loop of music playing or if this is just a bug? Can somebody confirm if this is normal?
Been stuck trying to get rid of Victor 9 for over 24 hours, i figure it's to do with wearing the badge upside down possibly. Anyone wanna take pity on me with a small hint?
Ohhh, I got nine out of the way. Crafty guys! :)
The game is not supposed to end once you've climbed up the rope. That sounds like a bug. Will look into it.I also strongly advise everyone not to use Internet Explorer while they play (or at all).
Commenter from 11/2 9:24 here. Figured out both puzzles, one while away from the computer, which almost never happens (sure sign of a well-designed puzzle when it can be solved without the game interface in front of you). Keep up the good work, looking forward to chapter 4 now.
I might be going insane, but I can't for the life of me even find a radio to start searching for these frequencies! I've looked in the ransacked cabin a million times, I can't pick up any other radios in any other cabins either and none of the character give me any other hints! Eeek! Can anyone save me?Excellent game by the way. I've loved all the chapters so far :)
Focus on other things first. You'll find the radio once you're meant to find it.
I'm in the same boat with the Anon Nov 4 3:01 AM, FINALLY got the book, sclapel, bloody mary... But now everyone says exactly the same as before, ransacked room offers no help and I'm completely clueless of the next step. If you figure it out do give me a hint! :)
Related to previous I'm apparently also supposed to find information about three locations but still, no one is talking antyhing new to me! I'm wondering whether it is because I made the Head SErvant complain about 9, and not the douche by the bridge...
As an addition to my comment from NOVEMBER 3, 2011 11:00 AM:Using Google Chrome the game continues after climbing up the rope. So it seems to be a IE9 specific problem.
2 days searching the tomato ... And nothing :(
The hint's in the name...
--- A few spoilers here, please read carefully ---I'm totally stuck! I can't seem to find a tomato juice surrogate for the Bloody Mary...I set the kitchen on fire already, and I found out that the radio is missing in Cabin 2.In my inventory I have:• Gasoline (I found out that it's possible to add some in the shaker, I don't how that helps though.)• Gin & Vermouth• Worcestershire & Hot sauce• Drink book & shaker• Lemon• Empty rat poison box (No idea what this is for.)• Parasol (No idea what this is for.)• Number 6 badgeCan anyone help me out? I really don't know where to look anymore D:
For the tomato substitute, I'd say take another look in cabin 2. You need something else in your inventory in order to help you with that ingredient :) Examine everything in that cabin again, perhaps more than once! As for me, I'm stilllll stuck with trying to get the radio. I've tried to think what else I can focus on first. My initial thought was to show the napkin note to the busboy (which i'd already attempted), but he still says he doesn't understand what it means! I'm going round in circles with no new dialog from any of the characters, and nothing new in my possession to show anyone. :( Clearly don't have my brain in gear for this chapter! haha. Any further hints would be most appreciated :)
Examine Cabin 2 more thoroughly, you've missed something important.
Are you trying to get Victor Nine out of your way? Have you noticed that a 9 is an upside down 6? Could that be helpful in any way?
I clicked on every pixel on cabin 2.I tried to use every item on every focusable thing in the cabin 2.And nothing.
I don´t understand the drawing on napkin. please HELP
Without giving too much away, you can pick something up in cabin 2, but it involves examining it first and then clicking it again. I was stuck on this part for quite some time!
Finally found the radio! yay! A little hint for anon who posted nov 4th stuck on the same bit, if you haven't found it already! I was missing something else which would give me more to chat about with a fellow crew member.... have a little look back through some of your possessions; especially something related to the making of the last cocktail. I didn't examine things as closely as I thought I had! Hope this helps :)
I have found the radio but the napkin don't make any sense. I have examining all the item in cabin 2. Please give me a hint.
You've found the radio, but the napkin still doesn't make any sense? You're not trying hard enough.
I got my radio to work 3 times but don't know how to proceed. Do I need to translate morse codes?
I just finished chapter 3.I really think this is one of the best games I ever bought !!!Thank you so much for it, I really really enjoyed playing.I'm waiting for chapter 4.
hint, the tomato juice substitute is a bit macabre.
that's a good hint for it, dude. thanks a bunch!
CAUTION, SPOILERS AHEAD.Okay.First off, fantastic game so far, bought the bundle when it first came out, and it hasn't let me down one bit so far. It's absolutely brilliant. A game experience unlike any other I've had in a long time.NOW FOR MY GOD DAMNED PROBLEMS.So, I made the Bloody Mary, I got rid of Victor Nine, I obtained the radio and so far I've located all three points of interest, where I obtained two pieces of paper that overlap and make that red line. I've found that the last point of static noise is inside my own cabin in the far left of the room, yet there seems to be nothing I can interact with. WHAT THE HELL AM I MISSING? It's literally driving me nuts.
----SPOILER---Look on your bed and on it´s sides.For me, i found the 3 pieces of paper but i don´t know what to do with them. The bartender ran away and everythingI don´t know what to do please help
Same poster here.I should have just kept looking, I found what I was looking for.
I've been stuck for days... someone please help... I can't get rid of victor 9!!! D:
Asked the bartender about it? He said you have to frame him in some way. Look at your badge.I also got stuck with the manual. It's not that it's hard. But how many times do you look at an item two times? I sure don't.
i couldnt find the radio please help me i am in stuck
Please help! I am at the end of chapter 3. I think I have to mix a drink, but now the shaker is full and in order to retry another the drink I need to clean it first. How do i do that without the sink??
open the coal bunker
am trying to get the poison at the end, have mixed gasoline, rust, lemon, gin, what am i missing as it wont work? thank u!!
If you read the packet of rat poison, it includes calcium, you get this from the a bone (hit: +coal cute)
Can anyone help me with a bug? I'm at Chapter 3 in the bar and I've just found the last pieces of a note, but when I try to move around now, it keeps saying "I can't seem to go there." Anyone have this problem? :(
Howdy! First of all I would like to remark that you actually succeeded in organizing a very nice looking website. Will you be so nice and provide an answer to my question. Do you have plans to write professionally or online blogging is basically just a of yours?
