Solution problem? Mutiny (part 2)

#1 Post by equinox » Wed Sep 02, 2020 10:34 pm

This is a nice game that really uses the 128K memory with a lot of atmospheric text. Feels like being in a Dickens novel. Just fun to read.

Part 1 solution is fine.
Part 2 solution stops working at THROW RUBY (response: "Why throw it?").

I have got a Spectrum RZX recording up to the problematic point:

Thanks for any advice.

Do you even have the ruby at this point?

No, there is no ruby in inventory:
"You have a dagger, a sharp stake, a sponge, a revolver, a rock, a monocle and an ornate snuffbox, while you are wearing your clothes."

However I did complete part 1 and I think I played it word for word. So if no ruby then apparently something is missing in the solution text...?

If you SEARCH DEBRIS at this location then you uncover the ruby...

Okay, I found the ruby by going to that location and SEARCHing DEBRIS. I then went back to the location where I should THROW RUBY, and did so. It works, saying "good shot": the ruby has landed on the promenade.

Now I try to continue the solution from THROW RUBY, as follows:
"W, W, S, E, DROP REVOLVER, DROP DAGGER, SEARCH DEBRIS (you get a ruby)"

But SEARCH DEBRIS finds nothing. I cannot proceed to the east because McCleary is there and kills me.

I have updated the RZX to show this new point:

Ignore the search debris and examine ruby bit, as you've already done that.

You need to follow the solution and RAISE HOOD to get past McCleary.

Once you've done that, and continue following the solution, the stake can be retrieved when it washes up and you make your way to the promenade and can retrieve the ruby,

Given up on this one. I got a lot further and then the dagger and revolver apparently weren't in the right place, and I couldn't get them and return through the sea since the stake was no longer available. I am not sure whether I made an error or whether the solution is in fact wrong somewhere. Too complicated! Thanks anyway.
