I'm stuck far too early on in this game.

On the shore of the Thames having just found out I'm contaminated...

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I have a piece of coal and the vial of glitter and the press cutting about the rock. I guess I need to make a fake piece of meteorite to get the policeman to go so I can get through the barrier, but combining the glitter and the coal doesn't seem to work and I can't work out what else I need to do...

Hints or outright solution welcome!

Day 4: Church Basement:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
I'm in the same spot.  The machine in the basement of the church has come apart, I've created the swastika, put in the machine, hit the lever, and nothing.  LOOKING at the control panel suggests that a fuse is blown, but I've tried sticking every metal piece I own into the panel with no luck.  Honestly, what do 1940's British fuses look like?   I can't leave, there's nothing else on the beach, nothing in the desk, and there's nothing else in the water.  I've also messed around with the "mound" until the damn thing has started to look like the head of Cthulhu.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi, I'd like to include a screen shot of an error message I'm getting in this game, but I can't seem to get the "Insert Image" function to work for me. It is a jpg file on my desktop, and it's about 70kb. I tried entering the file path in the "Insert Image" dialog box, but when I go to preview it, the image doesn't show up. Is this function not working, or am I doing something wrong?

Secondly, I probably need to download the latest version as I'm playing v1.0.0.1, but will I be able to use my v1.0 saved games in the latest version, or will I have to start over?

Turns out I am playing v1.3. The bug I've run into is early in the game...after the cop leaves the river front, Winston heads for the pub looking for his buddy. Every time I try to have him enter the pub, the game crashes and I get the error I mentioned above. Since I can't seem to find a way to upload the image of the error, here is what it says:

An Error has occurred. Please contact the game author....(blah blah blah)....then it goes on with (ACI version 3.21.1115) in "room22.asc", line 43....then Error: Error running function 'hHotspot2_WalkOn':....then Error: Null pointer referenced

Is there a way to avoid this crash?

Hi Mike

I'm sorry you've had this error. I havent encountered anyone having this error before, and cant seem to replicate it, so Im not sure whats happening. My only theory is perhaps if you tried to load a saved game from a different version? I have uploaded 2 save files to Dropbox, its for version 1.3, one is for just outside the pub before you go in, and the other is just after you go in. Hopefully these will work for you, if they do I would recommend deleting your other saved games just in case. Does anybody else know why this might be happening?

The only version of the game I ever installed is 1.3, so that can't be the issue. Is there some way for me to send you my saved game file of just before Winston tries to enter the pub to see if it happens to you? If it doesn't, that would point to a conflict with a driver or something on my system....

I went ahead and loaded both of the saved game files you provided into my game folder, and with 009 the same thing happened....it crashed with the same error message. With 010, I was able to interact inside the pub, but if I went back out and tried to re-enter, it crashed again. Weird.

Hi

Depending on what version of Windows you are using, there should be a folder called My Saved Games or Saved Games in My Documents, or the folder on the desktop that is named the name of your computer. Mudlarks should be in there. Copy and paste the saved games into it

You could send me your saved game as an attachment to saitcheson@hotmail.co.uk

Okay, I feel reeeeeeally dumb! I just realized what the problem is. After I downloaded the game, I unzipped all the game files to a folder on my desktop. To make things easy on myself, I then dragged the Mudlarks.exe file to my desktop, leaving the VOX file in the original folder. Therefor, I had no music playing as I tried to enter the pub, which because of the way the game is coded, it crashed when it couldn't find the audio coding.

Moral of the story: Leave all game files in the same folder!

Sorry. You may now call off the hounds.

I seem to be overwriting my saved games without meaning to. For whatever reason, I can't save more than six times, and no matter which saved game I hi-light and backspace the name of so I can create a new saved game, one of the two last ones I saved gets over-written. It seems earlier I had eight slots, now just six. Have I forgotten how to save properly? What am I doing wrong?

By the way, this is really a fun, funky game! It took a bit to get used to the graphic "style", but it's really growing on me, and the dialog is hilarious! Good job!

Do all the spots have to be touched while the clock is showing? If so, even at the slowest speed the clock (timer?) disappears after only about 3-5 seconds. Or does the timer keep going if you keep touching different triggers?

Mike:
The relief puzzle was tricky for me as well..hope this helps. 

suggestion-
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
try out a trial run without rushing..with headphones on, earbuds whatever avail so you can listen well for the clicks.  Try clicking the spots jobos mentioned..(the mans HAND on right side is one I believe) Main hand pointing up is first- LOUD click- the other 11 spots sound very light, more like a soft crunch as you click around you should be able to tell which areas are completely silent, and which spots ..'crunch'..then once you get all the right spots down, exit and retry it timed. You can do it

I'm afraid the relief puzzle has beaten me, try as I might I can't hit the hotspots in time. I can only hear the first click and nothing else despite trying Jojo's suggestion. I know it's me but I don't like arcade games, ( how sad I hear you cry ) and for me this has ruined a great game that I was thoroughly enjoying. :sad:
If somebody says they know all the answers, they haven't been asked all the questions.

Hi guys,

To beat the relief puzzle:

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
look closely at the relief. note that certain areas are worn, as if they have been touched often. most importantly, make sure you have the game set at default speed, anything more and it will be nigh on impossible. click the middle hand (there will be a louder sound here), then you have 10 seconds to click on the remaining areas before the mechanism resets itself. The puzzle is designed to be tricky, but not impossible. Im sorry that some of you are having trouble hearing the sounds. Please dont give up, you are very near the end! :D


 

Mike: re your saved game issue, my only thought is perhaps it is due to playing the game initally without all the files in the same folder, same as what caused the audio issue. this may have mucked things up with the saved game. anybody else know how this could happen?

Thanks for the tips on how to beat the relief puzzle, Shaun. I was finally able to get past it, but I found the only way I could do it was to
Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
start at the middle hand, then go down touching the two places below it, and then clockwise around the relief. No matter how many times I tried going any other way, and regardless of how quickly I touched the remaining locations, the puzzle reset before I could complete it.
And I also found if I had the game set too slow, I couldn't complete it in time either...so like you said, setting the game at default speed was the key. On to the finish!

I'm on day 4, in the church basement. I've done the second room, got the rock on the shore and so forth. But can't get past the padlock on the contraption... can't pick it, don't have the key, and can't find a rock to bash it in... erm.. help?

Hey guys,

Some cool people did a video walkthrough of Mudlarks on Youtube, it could be useful if anyone gets stuck :)

How generous are the sizes of the hotspots for the relief puzzle? I followed all the hints already in this thread for it, but I may just not be clicking pixel-perfectly enough, because I don't hear a click at all except for the hand...

the hotspot sizes are pretty generous, if you can see on the relief picture areas that are lighter in colour, that is basically where the hotspots are. the sound is quite faint, but even if you cant hear it, clicking the hand first, then the 11 lighter areas within the 10 second limit will solve the puzzle. hope this helps

Hi shaun9991!

I'm playing Mudlarks (and really loving it), and I'm stuck on the moment where I meet the dog with the ball for the first time. I know that I need to select the metal detector cursor and click on the area where the locket was found before I click on the dog, but doesn't seem to work for me - I cannot start the dialogue with the dog's owner about getting the ball from the dog, he just shooes me away every time. I've seen the youtube walkthrough video, and I believe that I've done the same thing (clicking the required spot), but the game just doesn't react like it does in the video.

Please help me... I really really want to finish this game!

Hi there sora_phoenix

I looked back at notes I made when I played the game and found the following:

Man throws boys ball into river. Boy askes if you can retrieve it. Go further along and
see fierce dog with ball in mouth. Chav is nearby. Use metal detector where you found locket, in first screen.
Find rusty nail. Man appears asking about permit. Talk to boy who wants his ball. Ask him to help. Annoy dog and chav tells you he is afraid of cats.

I hope this helps.

BarbWire, you just saved my day. I've made a totally stupid mistake, which has nothing to do with the game and only with my inability to pay attention to the walkthrough video. Thanks to your notes I discovered my mistake, and now I am proceeding further in the game. Thanks a ton!!

Hi sora_phoenix

No problemo. Glad I could be of help. If you get stuck at a later
stage of the game, just let me know.
