Hopefully someone can help us. I've never had the drop down menu appear in this room before, and I coded it so that it wouldn't. :-\

I'm sorry again that you're having this problem and hopefully we can figure out a solution.

Hi guys! I need some help! I'm playing as the head in the jar, getting to the ship. The problem is that when I finaly get pass the asteroids, I try to change my cursor from moving to hand or eye and the game colapses!!:shocked:

someone else with this problem?how can I fix it? thanks a lot!

Did you change any settings in winsetup before starting the game? I don't know if it matters in this case but changing the graphics driver can cause all kinds of weird bugs.

Nop, I didn't change anything, usually I run the .exe and if the game works I let everything as it is. Maybe I needed to change the settings? but the game run great until this point. I guess I'll re-install it, I wasn't very far in the game so it's ok, I just hope I can finish it because I really like it!:smiley:

Hi,
I encountered just the same error as spanishgirl. The drop down menu in this scene sometimes shows up, sometimes not. Maybe it has something to do with the possibility to access the menu via "Esc"? Hope you can fix this as I liked the game very much so far!

I did notice that by pressing Esc, you can bring up the games menu screen at points in the game that I don't want people to be able to. I have taken away these shortcuts and uploaded a new version.

I must be as dumb as Commander Moss...
Spoiler: ShowHide
I'm trying to get the USB cable for Head, but I can't even figure out how to get rid of the maintenance droid! I tried pushing the laser button several times, but he comes back before I can grab the cable.
Help?

I made it through the first two games (which were a blast, by the way) without help...maybe the wine is finally kicking in? :tongue:

Hello Mike,

It does take some quick action..
Spoiler: ShowHide
You need to press the button and quickly switch icons to walk left and switch again to the interact icon to grab it. You can press on the USB cable from across the room once it comes into view, so you don't have to wait for Commander Moss to walk to it. Press the button, switch to the walk icon and walk to the left, while he's doing that, switch to the interact icon and grab the USB once it's on the screen. If you're not using a mouse, I guess this can get tricky to do, but hopefully there's still enough time to manage it for those who aren't. This is the only timed puzzle in the game you'll have to worry about.

Thanks! It turns out that this works better if the game speed is turned down to at least the default setting. I had set it to be much faster because the default walking speed is too slow for my taste. I thought I was on the right track, but thanks again for the confirmation!

Ok glad to hear it. I'm also glad to hear you're sipping wine while playing...my favorite!

...sipping wine....hic....

This episode seems to be kicking my butt, Nicky! I am now to the point where both Moss and Head are at the non-functioning elevator (on their respective levels),
Spoiler: ShowHide
and Hand has just touched a button that apparently made power go across a broken conduit. I've tried having Moss turn on and off the fuse near the organism, and Hand doing the same with the power (?) button, and checking to see if Head or Moss can do anything more. So far I haven't found anything else they can do, and Hand can't get back down the elevator shaft to try other things. Oh, and Moss needs a key card (which I have no idea where it is) for a panel near all the pretty blinking lights.
What is a next step?

This should help..

If you need to get Moss in the elevator shaft...
Spoiler: ShowHide
Use the fuse box near the organism to get in


If he's already in there..
HINT 1
Spoiler: ShowHide
Moss should have an inventory item that should be able to help him


HINT 2
Spoiler: ShowHide
There's a fork in the room with the sinks


HINT 3
Spoiler: ShowHide
That fork might be able to help you open something


GIFT WRAPPED
Spoiler: ShowHide
Use the fork on the manual override in the elevator shaft. You might want to make sure the power is off though.

Doh! I never tried to have Moss

just walk into the elevator shaft...I thought it was a closed door in front of him.
Niiiice. Thanks again!

Am playing this on my tablet, and seems it's too slow to get pass the asteroids. :(
Are they random or is there a pattern I can follow?

Spoiler: ShowHide

In case there are more than one scene with asteroids, it's the one with head right at the start... If there's a pattern then I'll keep trying to get past this... unless there's a cheat to get past? ;)
I seem to have figured the first pattern: down, up, middle... and then crash... :P


Edit2
Okay, I seem to be a bit stuck, so if any one wishes to throw me a gentle hint, I would be very gracefull... :)

Spoiler: ShowHide

I'm controlling the blue alien, and have: one eyeball, jar with goo, controller (no batteries) and bottle cap.

It sounds like you have not been able to open the freezer. With the right choice of rerouting power, you should be able to open the freezer and get an important object.

So sorry Cassiebsg, I just noticed your post now.

Thank you for the helpful hint kp. If somehow you are still playing Cassiebsg, I would be more than happy to provide you with a walk through if needed. Sorry again.

This game seriously needs some walkthrough. That helpful hint did not help at all to me. Could you please provide walkthrough?

Yeah, I'm still playing it, but I'm in no hurry to finish, rather find stuff on my own than follow a walkthrough.
To be fairs, I don't play it that much and my tablet crashes often, which makes it harder to play it.

Where you at, Mngwa? Maybe I've past that part, and can still remember how to do it (or NickyNyce will help you)

I would be glad to try and help here, but if you would like a walkthrough, I can provide that too.

Cassiebsf: thanks I have already solved that problem. I am stuck again though. I am at the part of game where I can switch between Moss, Head and hand. Head is stuck at the place with big tentacle and cannot get to the prison, hand is in vent and Moss is stuck at another level of ship, has only crab thingy, pistol and fork.

Nickynice: That would be great, I would appreciate that.
