Clock Puzzle Skip Bug

#1 Post by cowgod » Thu May 15, 2008 4:16 am

I couldn't quite get the VIII in the right spot in the clock puzzle, so I tried the skip code (1350). This caused a window to pop up asking me to Abort or Ignore. If I pick Ignore, the pop up disappears, but the puzzle isn't skipped. If I pick Abort, the game ends.

Is it the wrong code or something?

See the full directions on how to skip puzzles - you don't just enter the number, you have to enter a command first. Sorry this is overly complicated, it was originally designed to make people have to jump through hoops and read the strategy guide in order to skip stuff. :)

it's

skip_puzzle();

then the code number in the box that comes up after that box.

Thank you.

I'm afraid I didn't pay careful enough attention to what the strategy guide said. I was just trying to get through the puzzle as fast as I could since I had already finished it except for placing the 8.
