Ok, it's official, I'm terrible at this.

HOW do I put the fire out? Straight answer, please. All the hints in this thread weren't enough.
Reach for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

Kneel. Now.

There's a pool of water in room 3. You need to fix that bug first, I think, though I can't remember for sure.

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
You can't use the fire ingame, but you can in the editor

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Change the cursor to the fire, then go to room 3 in the editor, and click it on the pool

Huh? But I did try that, time and time again. And I did it just now, and it didn't work. I've gotten cuppit to fix room 3, though if I read you right that wasn't strictly necessary for this puzzle; I've changed the cursor to the FIRE sprite (tried it with cursor WALKTO, INTERACT and USEINV, didn't see the point in trying more, the cursor looked like fire anyway); I've loaded room 3 in the editor; I've clicked on the pool, with the cursor resembling the fire. I've done it in "objects", "areas" and the other, first sub-setting in "Rooms". Nothing happens, nothing at all!

My bad. I checked, and this works:

In the room editor, make a new object, and select the fire for the object. Put it in the pool and it will be extinguished

Aaaaahhhhhh. Sneaky, and deliciously logical. For the life of me I don't think I've managed to solve any of these puzzles, but I truly admire them.

Hi !
I have reached the questions asked by the blue cup in the 3rd room.
I found the first one, but I can't pass the 2nd.  I tried many answers given in this topic, I tried with the size of the file on my computer, nothing works.
Please help !

If you're playing the newest version, the numbers in this thread won't help you at all. Try just looking at the properties of your META.EXE file to see the size in bytes and then take the first 4- or 5-digits, and type them in.

This is probably the only AGS game that you can't solve if you have a virus on your computer :)

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
because it can infect the META.EXE file and make it larger; yes, that has happened, making META the first AGS-based virus-scanner

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Cuppit asks for kilobytes; your computer may give the size in bytes. The game accepts both division-by-1000 and division-by-1024, as well as rounding the wrong way.

Just for posterity, the divide by 1024 calculation, resulting in 9876, didn't work for me, but the divide by 1000, resulting in 10113, did. And apparently not the full quote is needed for the answer to the third. Just three words.

I can't complete the game due to an error.  After using the "stuff pockets" debug command, trying to open the inventory causes the game to crash.  ACTUALLY crash, not something that's programmed in. I get this:


---------------------------
Illegal exception
---------------------------
An exception 0xC0000005 occurred in ACWIN.EXE at EIP = 0x0044A7AC ; program pointer is +6, ACI version 3.3.0.1162, gtags (2043,64)

AGS cannot continue, this exception was fatal. Please note down the numbers above, remember what you were doing at the time and post the details on the AGS Technical Forum.



Most versions of Windows allow you to press Ctrl+C now to copy this entire message to the clipboard for easy reporting.

Unable to create an error dump file. (code 3)

OK

Was the game upgraded to version 3.3.0, or you are using newer engine to run it?
I recall there was a bug which caused old-style built-in inventory to crash, which was fixed in AGS 3.3.2, according to changelog. Try using latest version of the engine to run it.
