Title: Speed Buggy: Manifold Destiny
Post by: Michael2968 on 30 Sep 2014, 13:24
I am having a problem figuring out what to do next in the game. I have put the
Spoiler: ShowHide
3 life preservers and the fan on speed buggy. I've cut a hole in the hot tub cover and pulled the tube down that is next to the hot tub and opened the pac man game and got the wire.
I would appreciate if anyone could give me any hints about what to do next.

Thanks,
Michael

There's quite a bit you can do still. I'm not sure what else you've tried but here are a few hints:

Spoiler: ShowHide

- wrap the wire around the tire iron
- get the hockey puck
- get the pipe near the hot tub
- get the fan


I don't want to say much more but hopefully that will give you a boost.

Hi,

great game so far but i'm stuck at the organ.
Spoiler: ShowHide

Found eqipment, fiddled with the organ pipe. (pieces)
Team says "no solid escape plan"
I'm totally out of options. Nothing seems to combine into anything.


Text speed could be 20 percent slower. I'm from germany and my english is quite ok, but reading and evaluating the text takes that bit more time.

Go back to the cell and remove the table legs. Then take the table back to the room with the organ.


Let's see if that gets you any further.

I was like .... thinking i tried picking up the table ... like ... a thousand times. (laugh)
A really nice game worth to be continued.
Please think of the folks that are not native at english language and give the text a little more screentime everybody. Try playing the Barnrunner games for a good example of "too fast".

I'm so sorry! I was going by memory and I may have gotten it backward! I tried reloading my saved game but it crashes. You click the one on the right side ONCE and then the one on the left side repeatedly. You'll hear a voice and so on. But keep your eyes on top of the locked door. When it says "WELCOME" on top, that means it's unlocked. Once again, my apologies

Hint 1
Spoiler: ShowHide

Have you checked the speed buggy?


Hint 2
Spoiler: ShowHide

If so, those titanium bars aren't that flexible...


Solution:
Spoiler: ShowHide

You need the belt from the buggy, and use it on the door bars along with the table leg...

Thanks for your help Cassie. Now I need to know what to do in the

pipe organ room. I have the table from the dungeon and I have already gotten the toolbox and saw and used the saw to cut the pipe into small pieces. I know I am supposed to somehow use the table to jump out the window but I can't figure out the right angle.

Hint 1:

The buggy needs more power to make the jump... ;)


Hint 2

Consider upgrading the buggy... uhm... isn't this one the same hint as hint 1? :P


Solution
Spoiler: ShowHide

Use the pipes on the buggy.

smashed the window and the pipe is outside connected to the air hockey but cannot figure out what to to next. He always keeps sayings that its not the time to inflate the life preservers, since I am still missing a fourth one, which I cant see where to get another one.

I tried to combine all with everything else in my inventory and together with all the available hotspots, but still have no clue what to do next. Guess I missed something. Any small hint would be nice.

Small hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Does Speed Buggy have any way to propel himself on water yet?


Major Hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Speed Buggy needs a propeller attached to his rear to be able to move across the water


SPOILER HINT:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Once you have Speed Buggy as fully prepared as possible: with 3 lifesavers on him, the air-hose ready to pump them up, and the fan attached (all at one time) you should find you can progress in the game...


Oh, and thanks for playing the game and having enough patience with it to ask for hints. That makes me very happy! ;-D

UPDATE... I figured it out, BUT...

Spoiler: ShowHide
 It was -IS- not quite obviously to me why the lifesavers need to be placed onto specific places. There are 4 wheel spots in total and just only because I did not place them on the RIGHT 3 wheels, I could not progress. Also there was no clue for placing or swap them into the other wheel slots.


Well, guess I can progress now... Nice game, that I really enjoy so far, except for this small misleading feature. And thanks for your kind support!

Hmmmm...

Spoiler: ShowHide
I clearly remember testing the game with the lifesavers on different wheel slot combinations, and in fact the way the code works is simply that it adds 1 to a single variable each time any slot is added and subtracts 1 each time any slot is removed. The game code does not actually know the combination of in which slot each lifesaver has been placed, and so has no way to check for that. I think it's more likely that you achieved one of the other flags for making Debbie and Mark reappear in the meanwhile and that gave the illusion that the lifesavers combination is vital.

Did you happen to add the fan to Speed Buggy or complete the air-pipe to air-hose rig [hide]using the hockey puck
in the meanwhile?

In other words: the 3 lifesavers can be on Speed Buggy in any combination of wheel slots and it will still work fine.[/hide]

Hope you continue to have fun with the game!

Finished the game.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Yes, the fan was placed with the 3 wheels and I could not progress... as far as I remember, it only worked out when I moved one lifesaver onto the top right wheel slot. (so you may please test again without any lifesaver on the top right wheel) However, it could be that I noticed another similar effect within the organ room: There we do have two windows, oposite to each other, and on the right one it was impossible to place the table ramp, it only worked on the left one.


Nice & entertaining... congrats!

I believe with the windows that the game should tell you that a possible takeoff angle cannot be achieved for that window when you click on the right-hand one.
