Has anyone started this game?

Amazing and weird...

Spoiler: ShowHide
I have entered the cave, but don't know what to do with the chasms... Any ideas?

I need help getting into the cave.

I have made the guardian clickable, but I can't figure out what the password might be.

Subtle
Spoiler: ShowHide
Looking, using and talking to the chasms is safe, but walking on them is not. If only there was some way of using the door without having to walk there...

Less Subtle

Hmm... Roger keeps trying to walk over there, huh? You'll just have to take that Walk icon away from him then!

Least Subtle
Spoiler: ShowHide
If using a 1st person perspective, Roger can access anything in the room. To do that, your main character will need to Hide.


I'm currently bashing my head on the next step...
Spoiler: ShowHide
...getting a key into that room to unlock that door. I've even tried turning one of the cursors into a key, but that just left me unable to click out the inevitable error messages. I've also getting around it with the debug mode, but I guess that won't work successfully until later in the game.

futonrevolution,
Neat solution, might be a bug as there is another much more complicated way to do it...

Darn. That might be why I keep crashing the game in new and spectacular ways. (The last time was by turning on the sound effect for scoring points.)

Well, actually, yes :) I think you'll find that your method doesn't actually work.

It keeps crashing? Ouch. Please tell me where and I'll fix it? Thanks!

What I love best about this is that, even though it's a hints and tips thread, even though the question has been asked, you're discussing the better solution and not telling. ::)

Well I'm not telling as it would give about 60% of the game away. Seems to high an amount for a hints tip.

Be subtle then. :P Nudge in the right direction. Tell me, should I be thinking in terms of what? Debug, characters, outside the box...

Right. I was thinking something along the lines of that, curiously enough, but I'd just assumed BHT was that bad. :) Thanks muchly.

 I'm going really crappily. I'm in the room with the chasms and am stuck. What to do now? I don't know how to ix the button or whatever Wretched was talking about. I have noticed that the "New Object" button is broken, is that the one?

The one in the sprite list? I couldn't get it to work if I place it as an object in the room or make it a cursor though.

I'm in the same place as Gilbot.

Spoiler: ShowHide
I figure I have to somehow correct the images for the inventory items? Or is it something to do with the yellow circle?
I went to create a new object, but I when I clicked on the key image it turned to be something else. So I went to the inventory screen and saw which inventory item had the key image, so then when I created a new object I chose the pink poster hoping it to be the key image, but it was a big yellow dot? Am I on the right track? Any more hints?

Have you fixed the button so that you can use it?

I've figured out how to cross one chasm, but not sure how to get across the other... I guess I'll muck around with this brilliant BHT editor a bit more  ;D

You need to use the 'save' feature of the game wisely.
