PQ4

Post by Rakeesh » Tue Mar 22, 2011 2:32 pm

Playing PQ4 for first time and I really wonder how 'time' progresses.

I am on Tuesday, found some evidence but the SID officer is not there. I looked at a walkthrough and it says that I should provide a report to Hal, which I have done. However i see that I failed to provide an earlier report.

It seems that my mistake was this: I thought that whenever you provide a report to Hal, it can thenceforth be freely 'updated' anytime by you.

Now it seems it works like this: when event A happens, you must fill a report for A. When B happens, you must fill a report for B. When A happens and then you go directly to event B (without having filled the A-report), the next report will be a B-report; you have lost the chance to fill an A-report and there is no way to change or prevent that.

Now I am not sure if missing such an event-report sequence can lead you to a dead-end :cry: Can anyone tell me how to escape the Marmot Day?

Unfortunately, I have not had anyone donate save games for PQ4. I have ones for the first 3.

No problem, I found the mistake: you must give your partner a paper at the beggining, if you want the call at the end...SIERRAAAAAAAAA

Ok, it seems it's another one of those walkthrough-is-not-cheating games
