Huy all!

As you have guessed from the title LOL! , I need some help with this wonderful game. I think this could be a bug, but I am not sure if it is related to the .dsk's (complete package with manual) that I have or if it is something else that is happening. I also do have the original yellow disks as well, but at the moment I am not able to put them inside an original MSX as I am abroad.

The problem is as follows:
The Prince (Yrandai Palace, Chelestra) is asking me to wait for the king to return, and then I might have permission to enter the crypt. After that, (CCAEANAGACAIAA) I went to Danzig to fetch the key in Amok and after that, I went to Port Hope to hear the story about the man in the black cape, till here everything is fine (CCAFANAGACAJAA). When I now return to Port Fargo for the next part, the Mayor is already gone and the innkeeper is not telling me to talk to the Mayor and when I go into his house the Mayor has vanished.... I spend hours and hours and hours on it thinking that the Mayor is somewhere else Murdoch so went to everything village etc. but based on some of my searches here on the forum AND a very useful guide, the Mayor is my next part.

Please see my video below which will explain my story scenario above (double click on the movie if not visible completely):

Also, if it is possible and you have a .dsk with a savegame, RIGHT after the Mayor or some hint codes further (not too far of course :) ) that would be great! I am using BlueMSX and on the phone (android) paid version of Msx.emu

Please let me know if I am doing something wrong or how I can solve this.

Thanks! B-)

I have made a walk through with most if not all codes. Don't know if I have it with me here. Will have a rummage later...

Hello Randam!

Thanks for your reaction! That useful guide i was referring to was I think the same walkthrough (which i found after days of roaming around on the islands Eek! ), I quote:

Quote:

Talk to the prince in Yrandai Palace in his father’s stead to get approval to get the key. He
must first talk to his father though [CCAEANAGACAIAA]. Go back to Amok for the time being
and get the key back from Danzig [CCAFANAGACAIAA]. Then go to Port Hope and talk to
the inn keeper. He tells you a man in black has stayed in the exact same room as you did
[CCAFANAGACAJAA]. Go to port Fargo and talk to the inn keeper. He’ll tell you that the
major wants to talk to you [CCAFANAGACAKAA]. After a night’s rest go to the major and tells
you some people are kidnapped by a fade which might be holding up somewhere near the
ghost town [CCAFANAGACALAA].

Thanks though for your efforts!

Did you have a sleep in the inn?

I have tried multiple ways yes. Without sleep, with sleep, saving before, reloading etc Nishi all with the same results, unfortunately.

Hello Randam and others,

Tried again multiple things, also had copied some files and created new dsk out of so it will be fresh data. I even went back couple of hint codes (before clearing out Port Drevlin). Did the whole sequence again and saved on different discs.

All of that didn't matter the Mayor is still not on its original spot and the inn/barkeeper is not telling me to go to the Mayor, even though i have the correct code.

Anybody still has a suggestion, i think i cannot surpass this bug, is there someone with a savegame (llw on disk) which is JUST passed this moment? I would like to continue again Face

Thanks so much!
