Thanks Addicted and Frog ...I should have been paying attention to the instructions as when I got a 'I can't use this here' message when I first used an item on the happy gargoyle I thought I had to place items on the granite stone next to it ...d'uh!!!

Now that I've fed the hungry man and have a mauve key, I'm ready to carry on adventuring.

Ok, I'm stuck again...

I have a scrap of paper (I'm glad I killed him), a map of the valley, potion of lies, wand of courage, a flower, kindness pendant, an empty bucket (used once), a spade, potion of dull senses, sorcerers hut key (can't find the hut), a tyre.

I'm guessing I should use the spade to dig the x but I can't get there as I've already used the potion.


Help!!!

:v2_dizzy_confused3: what did you use it on? if you used it on the correct thing, you shouldn't be able to get back until you've opened a gate. if you didn't use it on the correct thing, well, you're outta luck!

I used it on getting to the area cut off by the trap. Then I got everything I could find and went back. Please tell me I don't have to do it all over again!

Gavlaa - its time to start again im afraid :( and as i discovered to my cost, you dont just restart the level, but from the very start :v2_dizzy_down:

Heres a little trick to get round Jamies one save - make a copy of the save file then if you get something wrong, rename the file back so it isnt the copy :v2_dizzy_thumbsup:

Thanks for the bad news Frogandhat, but great shout with the file rename.

I guess its time to start again.

(warning contains lvl3 Spoilers):
seems Jamie was amused by my previous help, so I was partly wrong on the lantern. when I played it, I used it there to light it. I didn't try elsewhere.

I know you need a piece of paper for the son. Can't remember where I got it. Have you completed all the games. Think it might be from O & X's

hmm if the potion had run out, you shouldn't have been able to get back across without dying...

I cant win on the o's&x's - is that game over?
My previous save game was midway through playing os&xs so what happens now?
