Bug with wirecutters

Feeling like this game could be murder... literally? Well, come on in here for some extra detective work (and clues/hints/etc!) for the Laura Bow games (The Colonel's Bequest and The Dagger of Amon Ra).

Bug with wirecutters

Post by discoalucard » Sun May 09, 2010 12:41 am

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.

The only thing I can think of, if it's not a bug, is that there are a few wires hanging. Have you tried the other wires?
