Thanks again Cassie I appreciate the hints unfortunately I can't figure out how to
Spoiler: ShowHide
put the pipes on speed buggy. If I try it in the pipe organ room it says I don't have an escape plan and if I try it in the dungeon it says speed buggy can't get out the door with anything else attached to him.

Have you made the table in the cell fall over yet?;)

I took this one to PM with Michael2968 and we figured out what the trouble was. It wasn't a bug or anything, thank goodness!

Hmm... I've:

Got the 3 life preservers and fan fixed to the buggy, made a magnet to get the real quarter, fixed the cover and pipe to the table, used duct tape to fix the pipe and screws to fix the cover, but I can't work out what to do next.  Can't cut out from the cover, won't remove it... still says the air hockey table is on, not sure what else I need to do?

smashed the window and the pipe is outside connected to the air hockey but cannot figure out what to to next. He always keeps sayings that its not the time to inflate the life preservers, since I am still missing a fourth one, which I cant see where to get another one.

I tried to combine all with everything else in my inventory and together with all the available hotspots, but still have no clue what to do next. Guess I missed something. Any small hint would be nice.

Small hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Does Speed Buggy have any way to propel himself on water yet?


Major Hint:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Speed Buggy needs a propeller attached to his rear to be able to move across the water


SPOILER HINT:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Once you have Speed Buggy as fully prepared as possible: with 3 lifesavers on him, the air-hose ready to pump them up, and the fan attached (all at one time) you should find you can progress in the game...


Oh, and thanks for playing the game and having enough patience with it to ask for hints. That makes me very happy! ;-D

Everything is exactly as you say, however I still cant make any progress.
Spoiler: ShowHide
I cant use the air-hose on the speed-buggy, not on the fan, not on the livesavers, nor on the hood...

Maybe posting what you have on inventory might give us a clue on what might be missing?

UPDATE... I figured it out, BUT...

Spoiler: ShowHide
 It was -IS- not quite obviously to me why the lifesavers need to be placed onto specific places. There are 4 wheel spots in total and just only because I did not place them on the RIGHT 3 wheels, I could not progress. Also there was no clue for placing or swap them into the other wheel slots.


Well, guess I can progress now... Nice game, that I really enjoy so far, except for this small misleading feature. And thanks for your kind support!

Hmmmm...

Spoiler: ShowHide
I clearly remember testing the game with the lifesavers on different wheel slot combinations, and in fact the way the code works is simply that it adds 1 to a single variable each time any slot is added and subtracts 1 each time any slot is removed. The game code does not actually know the combination of in which slot each lifesaver has been placed, and so has no way to check for that. I think it's more likely that you achieved one of the other flags for making Debbie and Mark reappear in the meanwhile and that gave the illusion that the lifesavers combination is vital.

Did you happen to add the fan to Speed Buggy or complete the air-pipe to air-hose rig [hide]using the hockey puck
in the meanwhile?

In other words: the 3 lifesavers can be on Speed Buggy in any combination of wheel slots and it will still work fine.[/hide]

Hope you continue to have fun with the game!

Finished the game.

Spoiler: ShowHide
Yes, the fan was placed with the 3 wheels and I could not progress... as far as I remember, it only worked out when I moved one lifesaver onto the top right wheel slot. (so you may please test again without any lifesaver on the top right wheel) However, it could be that I noticed another similar effect within the organ room: There we do have two windows, oposite to each other, and on the right one it was impossible to place the table ramp, it only worked on the left one.


Nice & entertaining... congrats!

Thanks for the kind words...So glad you enjoyed the game...

I believe with the windows that the game should tell you that a possible takeoff angle cannot be achieved for that window when you click on the right-hand one.
