Dagger of Amon Ra play! - Tawmis

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).

Back from my brief visit to TX... and I have to say - crossing the dern street was painful. I didn't look both ways, so I got run over.

So then I did the Eye icon all over (well just about) and still kept getting run over.

Put it ALLLLLLLL the way to the middle left (where it looks like - to me! - you're looking at the building) - and then that allowed me to safely cross!

This game, though I have barely begun, is pretty freaking difficult already! :lol:

It's kind of nice not remembering much about the game; sort of playing it for the first time, it feels like!

Ha, I barely crossed the road! It's a bit tricky to me since over here, kids are taught to look left, right, left, and when I played LB I did that all the time by habit. :)
Never got down to finish the game - the chase is a bit too much and I was rather annoyed at having missed like half the game by the time I got over my pride and grabbed a walkthrough.

I am trying it without a walk through at the moment. But doing the same thing I did with CodeName Iceman - where I am saving every time I move the game "forward" (having created multiple directories to save in). So if I do miss something I might want to see, I should be able to restore to one of those games.

OK, the existing saves are from 1.1. Doesn't hurt to have a different set of saves, though. It's up to you if want to add your saves here, too.

Didn't get to play today; spent the night importing my 3.5" disks to the external drive.

However, while going through my games - I did find several of my old, Sierra hint books! So I may go over some of the walk throughs (including the one for Dagger of Amon Ra) and see about adding to them if needed?

I will just upload the Dagger of Amon Ra one (once I finish the game, if I do make any changes to the SHP one) as a WORD document in this thread!

TXT is better unless there is some reason to include formatting.

Weird error. It doesn't exit the game or anything. Just pops up the error. I can click okay and continue the game.

It's when I put the carbon paper on the notes (can't remember if this is needed to see the notes, as I am doing this sans walk thru at the moment). You can take the notepad and put it on the carbon and it says you're wasting your time. (So I doubt if this is needed). Just curious if anyone has seen that before?

And nevermind; found what's need to rub on the note in the next room. But still interesting that it has that error?

As I read it, there is no such resource that I can find in the game.

I wonder if this is an error within the game itself (something designers overlooked?) or something weird with my install?

Again - not a big deal, because it doesn't exit/crash the game; nor is it the right action to take to solve that particular riddle.

It looks like an oversight.

I should call Sierra and tell them to patch this! :lol:

I did notice - that there's a character in the game that makes a reference to "fencing for Big Al" (and I wonder if there's some hidden joke there?)
