Title: The Caves and the Castle
Post by Semi-Native on 01.09.2010 at 02:13:18
10289  The ladder is still unstable. Jack sometimes falls to his death when climbing down. I'm doing Easy but I think it's the same in Normal and Hard, too.

I'm sorry, Semi-Native, but I cannot reproduce this.  My Jack climbs up and down the ladder without any problems.  Same applies to all three versions.

I guess my Jack is a klutz, then. It happened several times through testing and again today. Somebody else reported it during testing, too. It's the long, broken ladder, not the short one.

Yes, I know.  I tested the long, "broken" ladder.  I may change it since I don't like it if other Jack are falling in it.

I've had this problem too. My Jack sometimes falls to his death from the 'broken' ladder. It doesn't seem to depend on his speed of descent but when he falls it's always from the same point; when he's about level with the platform below the red key.

I'm in Room 11680 and I can't find a way to get back out. As you can see I don't have a red key.

Use those blocks to hop over to the other side.

Hmmm, I've tried that and was unsuccessful. :-/  Guess I'll try to see what trick to that I missed.

I ended up aborting since I never could get past the wall.

Catwoman, how did you manage to get up there without a red key?

I will release an update to prevent this but I am curious.

Title: Re: The Caves and the Castle
Post by Catwoman on 05.09.2010 at 02:37:49
For me it was quite easy.  :D I had the yellow so opened the door in the room below and then rode up. Glad to hear I wasn't just losing it. (That would be a discussion for a different topic. ::))

Yes, but you cannot open the yellow door without getting a red key at the same time.

Title: Re: The Caves and the Castle
Post by Catwoman on 05.09.2010 at 05:17:33
I had retrieved the red key earlier and used it in the room to the left of where I got stuck.

Title: Re: The Caves and the Castle
Post by brell on 05.09.2010 at 05:24:29
So you never got the red key in the room below the yellow door?

Title: Re: The Caves and the Castle
Post by Catwoman on 05.09.2010 at 05:36:01
No I had not. I learned that was my mistake.

Title: Re: The Caves and the Castle

OK.  In the next update you will be able to "undo" your mistake.  ;)

Ok, I have a new problem. I'm in Room 10679 and I can't go anywhere.

You'll ask how I got here. Well, I discovered I didn't need to use all of the red keys at the beginning. I left one of those unopened. I missed opening the blue door in Room 11278. I couldn't go back and open it. I didn't have a yellow key to be able to retrieve the purple key. I kept going up and then to the right and down. Now that I have a yellow key I can't return to the left or get to the other grey bat platform to go up.

You must mean the blue door in room 11279, which leads to room 11278, right?  If you missed that door, you must have opened the red door in 11279 with your spare red key.
This leads you to room 11079 and since you don't have a blue key you go up to the next room above, which is room 10879.  In that room you MUST get the blue key and go back down to find a red key.  With that red key you open one of the red doors in room 10879.  I just can't see that you are stuck.  You can go to the right and back down to room 10879.  You have a red key and can open the other red door in that room, right?
If my assumptions are not correct, then you must tell me:
1. When you first arrived in room 10879, did you have any key at all, and if you did, which color?
2. Tell me what you did after you arrived in room 10879 until you are in the situation on the picture in room 10679

Take a close look at your map. I am almost sure you are not stuck.

You are correct on the room numbers for the blue key. I'll open it up and look at it, I believe you are correct that I do have somewhere to go.  :-[ I need new glasses.

Wow !   Great Mansion, very tricky on Normal, Jack and I are going back (after a wee rest) to try Difficult level !

Thanks so much Brell for making a great and challenging place for my Jack to play in...hope to see a new mansion from you soon !

Take care,

Thanks for the compliment, SandyBean.  Yes, TC&TC are supposed to be tricky but not hard.  The player can almost always think ahead and ponder how he/she is going to solve the puzzles.  Usually there is no rush!
