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...

Default 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!

Unhappy 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.

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.

If that doesn't work, consult as many walkthroughs as you can find. Maybe there's something you need to do before that part of the game that you haven't.

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.
