So I've come across a bug I haven't read about anywhere before. I'm trying to grab a piece of the wire from the pterodactyl. I look at the dead body to get a close up, then use the magnifying glass on the wire for another close-up...but when I use the wire cutters, the icon just turns into the "loading" hand, the screen changes to the room view, and...nothing happens. I can click off and move after that, but I can't the wire, which I know I need! Help!
Alternatively - does anyone just have a save game after this point? Maybe on Act IV with all of the necessary items? I'm playing the English CD-ROM version, with just the fan patch installed for the timer issues.
