The Fifth Horseman As I have already told you, the game does not require installing.

Steven doesnt show up

Hi,

I've got exactly the same problem as Arete described; Steven doesn't show up at the party. I've talked to everyone about pretty much everything, and I also had a lot of "eardrop scenes", but after the last one all main characters disappeared and I'm stuck at the museum. There's nothing I can do, I can't leave as there's no taxi and Heimlich blocks the way in the room with the big skeleton.

Too bad; this game really had potential, but when it has such "dead ends" because you didn't ask someone a single thing at some point before it's just so annoying.

_r.u.s.s. just try it

it is compatible in dosbox minimally, so it is flawlessly runnable in win 7

Mr. X chases you from the Mastodon Room to Pterodactyl Room (close door use wire) to Armor Room (close door and bar) to Storage Room (move chair move transom) to Ancient Egypt Room (go left) to continuation of Ancient Egypt Room (enter sarcophagus).
Mr. X is supposed to come in on the right side, pause slightly, turn around, screen cut to him breaking open the Storage Room door, screen cut back to Laura, Laura runs to hole in door (from what I remember).
When I enter the sarcophagus, Mr. X doesn't appear, I walk out and then he shows up, bonks me on the head and well...obviously dead I need to restore. Anybody had this happen or does my timing just suck?
Also, I have everything that Capo mentioned (on Page 10 of this thread) that I'm supposed to have to start Act V. Am I missing something? Did I do something wrong/out of order?
Thank you in advance to everyone who can help me! ^.^
Don't close the Armor Room's door
