Finding the Advisory Syllable

Post by Datadog » Fri Oct 10, 2008 4:00 pm

I was playing Woodruff a couple weeks ago for the first time, when I ran into a snag. According to the only two walkthroughs I can find for this game, I'm supposed to get the Advisory Syllable from the Time Wiseman when I give him his syllable. But when I did that, he just said a couple lines and didn't give me anything.

Before I restart the game and try again, is there something else I was supposed to do to get the Advisory Syllable, or did I just happen to hit a bug?

Did you click on him again?

I can't believe it. It worked.

I remember spending a whole twenty minutes in that room trying every possible command, and both talking to him and giving him his sylalble several times. All I did this time was give him his syllable twice and then talk to him.

I must have to talk to him right after the syllable, otherwise the programming doesn't work right.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Collector my Master - I just noticed that you spelled Schnible wrong - it's supposed to be Schnibble with two t's :)

Good eye. It was just the forum name, every thing else was correct. It's what I get for staying up late setting up the forums again in a hurry after the meltdown.
