I have a scene that I have repeated literally hundreds of times and I cannot do it.

Please help me

It is lighting the fireplace.

Light the fireplace: Double click the exit of the classroom.
Double click the exit to staff room.
Take the lit strip in inventory and use it to light the prepared wood-paper in the fireplace. A fire is made.

I can get the strip lit and carry it from the initial room to the staff room.

From this point I simply fail.

Please help me.

When Wilbur enters the staff room (unlike the video walkthrough) there is NO lit strip to grab.

He is not holding a fire strip (like in the video)

I can't move any faster than I moved .

I've repeated this over and over hundreds of times...please help me



I've received some help from some people:

"I assume, that you're maybe too slow to enter the staff room and that's why there's no lit strip in your inventory. There is however a trick to facilitate things:
When moving to the entrance hall you open the inventory and use the notebook with the burning strip there. This will light a new strip that burns longer than the initial strip.
Then you enter the staff room and repeat the procedure (or you can just use the burning strip with the fireplace). If not yet done, now ignite the fire with the second/third strip.
If all else fails, I can upload a fitting savegame for you".


I still can't do it after hundreds of practise attempts.

Please help me

Hi aidamei,

I´m not part of the developer crew, but I´ll try to help you out.

As far as I remember you need scraps of the notebook to ignite a torch.
When entering another room, use your torch to ignite another piece of notebook-scrap and gain a new torch.
Repeat this till you reach the fireplace and light it.

thank u for your help

will u please have a look at my saved game?

I have a question... Do you believe my issue is about loading times?

I know exactly what to do.

I added the important steps  (you see above) about trying to take the lighted torch out of your inventory and into your hands whilst you are in the first room.

This has made what was impossible even MORE impossible.

One thing I can tell you absolutely 100%;  I am moving the character as fast as I possibly can.

I can't move him any faster.

I know the steps...I know what to do but I cannot succeed even after hundreds and hundreds of attempts.

What you are saying makes perfect sense.

The problem is one thing....."When entering another room"

In my game (for whatever reason) I have less than a tenth of a second to move from room to room.  This makes it completely impossible to do the action of lighting another paper. There is NO time.

Please Help.-----   Hangover ------  (Section beginning with Critter)

Someone gave me a save game to fix the earlier problem

I believe I am experiencing a glitch...  please help me

Critter is outside the palace,

As soon as you start to move him about he locks into place (freezes) refuses to move anymore

Everything else continues as normal

Music continues...etc

If this is a glitch, Is there anyway I can backtrack and get out of here somehow?

Hi,

sounds like the savegame bug.

Finishing chapter 1 should unlock chapter 2 in the mainmenu.
Please start a fresh game by selecting chapter 2 from the mainmenu - this should solve your issue.

please help me

---Start The Constructor-----

I'm having great difficulty again.

I know the steps for the Constructor.

I just can't manipulate my hands fast enough

Will someone please help me?

Does anyone have a save right after Starting the Constructor?

So you know the sequence of actions you have to take to start the constructor?
Do you have all the required items (V-belt, coal, intelligent stone and wood)?
What happens when you start by opening the door to the oven?

The starting of the constructor isn't a time-based minigame. You can take all the time you need, so no need to rush things when you're not fast enough to manipulate things. That's a real good thing with The Book of Unwritten Tales.
At the steam-forum you'll find plenty of savegames in the savegame-thread there, one before and one right after the Constructor-activation (the one after misses some dialogue in the appearance of Ivo but that's the price to pay ...).

So long

Lornik

all right,this is what I do:

As soon as the cursor becomes active - do the next step.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven. Close oven door.
Click levers to tell N8 to pull levers.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven. Close oven door.
Click oil can to get N8 to oil the gears.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven. Close oven door.
Click oil can to get N8 to oil the gears again.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven. Close oven door.
Click oil can to get N8 to oil the gears again.


The problem is Wilbur keeps saying....."hmmmm,that's not it"

I can't possibly mistake the instructions...they are plain,clear and simple.

So, I'm only deducing that maybe there is some sort of timing involved when the instructions say......  " As soon as the cursor becomes active - do the next step"

No worries, I figured it out

The walkthrough I consulted was wrong.

I was following it's direction.

The steps SHOULD have read:

As soon as the cursor becomes active - do the next step.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven (TWICE) Close oven door.
Click levers to tell N8 to pull levers.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven (TWICE) Close oven door.
Click oil can to get N8 to oil the gears.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven (TWICE) Close oven door.
Click oil can to get N8 to oil the gears again.
Open the oven door. Shovel coal in the oven (TWICE) Close oven door.
Click oil can to get N8 to oil the gears again.

Now I have a different problerm (probably another glitch)

This glitch however is not allowing me to bypass.

I have repeated the scenario several times.

The glitch is always at the same place.

All other glitches I was able somehow to bypass.

This one I canot..It returns to it over and over same place same time.

In Chapter four after winning the legal battle,Red Pirate goes through the door

I find the key and unlock Captain Nate

Nate and Critter talk about not needing the Princess

All characters freeze (No more ability to make speech)

Please help me bypass this  :'(
