The patch for this game is still available. Hasbro Interactive was taken over by another company in 2001. You can get it at: this link. Thanks ~Fran

Sigh. It seems I am doomed to never open the iron maiden. Sigh, I guess I will email tech support. Well, at least Gabriel Knight 3 will be out in a few days (at which point, Clue will probably be put on the back burner...)

Thank you!!!! for the tips on the marble game it's very very challenging and I had been trying for the longest to crack it. solving the riddle for Miss Scarlet causes a cool effect! Thanks again!! Have a good evening everyone.

I still can't get into the wheel house and I can't figure out what to do! I combined the artifact with the puzzle box and it opened. I read the paper inside. Now what? Please help. Gail

Gail, Did Miss White drop the vase? if so, you'll note a down arrow next to her...

Edan - 11:10am Nov 10, 1999 PST(#31 of 4060)

Sigh. I emailed tech support and they sent a reply saying pretty much "That's a gameplay issue, not a technical support issue, use the ingame help or the walktrhoughs on the web" (What walkthroughs?!)

As a programmer myself, I know the difference between a gameplay issue and a bug, and this looks like a bug (when two people follow the same steps, the game should react the same, no?) I wrote back to them, telling them that, and I included the error log the game made when it crashed twice, in case it's related.

Edan - 01:56pm Nov 10, 1999 PST(#32 of 4060)

I just got another response from tech support. They said they are aware of the problem and are trying to make a fix. Yay! I just don't know if they meant the Iron Maiden bug or the crashes.... (hopefully both)

Sigh, I'm stuck again. I have the cable car running and it is stuck on the ice. I've tried everything but so far, nothing works. I can't move away from the control panel with the flashing red light! I have tried moving the only switch the game will let me. All I have in my inventory is the flashlight, glass of wine, mended instructions and the list from the puzzle box. Am I missing something? What am I doing wrong? HELP!

Edan - 05:46pm Nov 10, 1999 PST(#34 of 4060)

Gail (and anyone else qith difficulty with the controls) To move certain levers, you click on it and then drag the mouse up or down.

(Gail: One of those levers is a backwars/forwards lever... hint, hint)

Gail B - 06:28pm Nov 10, 1999 PST(#35 of 4060)

I finally got the cable car/controls to work. Has anyone else had problems with the game locking up?

April Carlson - 10:19am Nov 11, 1999 PST(#36 of 4060)


yes I have had problems with the game crashing!!! I had gotten through the cable car and into the castle had solved at least one riddle and then I received a fatal error. I suggest anyone that has finally cracked something or figured a riddle out, SAVE YOUR GAME!!! That has helped me out. Doesn't mean you have to quit for the day but that helps ease my peace of mind!!!

felicia williams - 08:32pm Nov 11, 1999 PST(#37 of 4060)

finally got to the end but i think i missed seeing certain things before i got to the end. it is a great ending but teases you for the next installment.
