Hello guyzzz i've got a question,

i bought macinarium today and it's a nice game but after a few minutes of play, it seems that there is a bug which isn't fixed although i updated it with the new patch.

When I was imprisoned by the Robo mafia, i made my way through the sewer and caught the key from the guard who was chillin on his chair...after that i used it on the box and left the room through the sewer again.

Then i left my jail to the front door. After that i tried to go into the guard room, but everything there were dark and i coudn't klick on anything. No hotspot were active. The only thing what was available was the stretch mode from Jef.

Furthermore I couldn't left the room anymore...

pls Help:(

That's where you took the wrong turn.  Once you use the key to activate the two green lights go in the room to the left, NOT back into the sewer.

Sry but this didnt work Josef shakes his head. I used the key on both lights..the other two prisoners try to escape e and the guard recognizes it and stop them. During this sequence i cant go anywhere only through the sewer.
And the other door u mentioned is a door with a lock to enter a number similar to a clock...

Maybe i took a wrong turn but why i get a dark screen and cannot play anymore when im entering a room?

Notice how the mafia guy runs through the room to catch them? See if there's anything to take advantage of this situation.

For example: When you tip the guard over you have a chance to grab those BBs on the plate.   Wink

That's really confusing... so by RIGHT you don't mean coming out of the table? You got there through the cell door?

I think the devs never expected you to get into the room this way! Didn't think that possible... You crawl through the sewers and when look through the hole at the end under the table, the scene is revealed.
How did you left the jail through the front door without opening it beforehand?

I opened the sewer and crouched to the guard room. Then i used the key on both locks and saw that the guard tries to catch the other two robots and turn on the both locks again.


Then i thought:

Ok maybe its wrong to use the key on both locks. Then i ONLY USED IT ON THE RIGHT ONE. As you can see in pic 4. then i got back under the table after taht, and crouched back to my jail.

And then we are again at pic 1 in my previous post.

hope you can follow me Cheesy

I thought as much. You have to be really fast though... So it becomes dark again? interesting.

Well if i use the balls and dont go back to the sewer then it is as you described ..the guard slipps away on the floor and foolow the other robots through the door...but if you go the way like me:

pic 4
pic 1
pic 2
pic 3

the screen is black and you can do nothing. just quit the game.

Is this a bug now ?^^

You weren't supposed to do that... but you can do it. So... I would call it an oversight on the devs part or a glitch at worse.

If you're willing to create a new thread taking into account the glitches already posted and fixed by the patch listing all errors encountered in the Machinarium section, then you have my benediction.
