Thank you for the reply! I think that is a really good idea, I'll consult many walkthroughs to do everything completely and properly in the game. I have played games before that don't allow for a task to be completed unless some prerequisite trigger was completed.

When I slow down the cycles in DOSBox the mouse moves so slow I have a hard time selecting things at the rights time. I'll give that a try again though.

Neville Some old Sierra games are very sensitive to speed and will have problems when run in newer computers. My advice would be to use DOSBox and set cycles to the lowest playable value (3000 for starters) before entering that part of the game.

Rats & Wires timing problem

Hello, In the sewers under Johnny Qwong's place with the Rats & Wires I'm having a problem.

I've watched YouTube videos that show a popup message will appear when the rats first bite you and you need to administer the health kit to heal yourself.

However, I don't get any first popup image notice of the first bite. I've tried 50+ times - no joke :) with different combinations and miltiple saves. When I get to the third wire shunt (no matter what order I use them) I always just die from the rats. And if I try to use the health kit after the second wire shunt is in place, it says I'm not injured and I die immediately when exiting my inventory.

The same thing happens in my original DOS install (I have a DOS PC), and in Windows98 DosBox, and in this GOG version that I bought in hopes of getting past the Johnny Qwong sewer.

Any help, ideas or a savegame just past the wires someone could offer up for me would be great. Thanks.

Arcade Scenes: Freeeeeeeze!

A friend of mine is playing this game and has trouble to get through the arcade scenes. Right after starting such a scene, the game freezes. We tried all possible combinations in DOSBox CPU and graphic settings, but nothing helps. Does anybody have a hint? Thanks!

Balthasar42 I'm embarrassed to say that I played this game before I saw Blade Runner as a kid. I kept waiting for the replicants to morph into crazy, bipedal dragons...

Maxor127 I liked this game back in the day, probably just because it was a Sierra game. It's not the greatest, but still enjoyable. I liked the mixture of adventure and the gun sequences.

My Encounter with the game

I played this many many moons ago (however long ago that was). I got stuck at the phone line in the sewers, not understanding how it worked (I was only like 12 years old when I played it after all).
Having it uploaded here totally rocked and thanks to my neighborhood walkthrough at Gamefaqs.com, I made WAY more progress than before. Unfortunately, when the action sequence started between me and The Snake, the game froze. Apparently my setup with Dosbox (default) isn't favorable with this. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to remedy this?

Banjo I don't know where else to post this, so figured here at Abandonia might be the best place to start... has anyone ever thought of attempting to rip the speech from the Sega CD version and combining it with the graphics/uncut gameplay of the DOS version? I don't know how possible that is, since I know very little about Sega CD formats, but I know similar things have been attempted with a few games, in attempts to mix PC and Amiga versions, etc.
