The Three Musketeers: The Game / Re: unable to to save madame bonacieu
« on: November 19, 2009, 12:30:26 AM »
Not that it really matters, but I'm assuming that you at the point in the game where the Cardinal's Guards set the "mousetrap", and you have to save Madame Bonacieux downstairs.

If you ever find the enemies too hard, there are a few things that you can do:
1. First and easiest, is to just buy more ointments. Most innkeepers sell ointments, or you can find them by looking inside crates, barrels, and chests.
2. You could also go fight some lesser enemies and "level up" your abilities. Just wander around Paris a bit, and when you see some people trying to pick a fight with you, talk to them and fight them. After you beat enough of them you will level up (meaning that d'Artagnan will do better in future fights).
3. Go buy some better equipment. The simplest thing to do is to buy a better sword from the blacksmith in Paris. You need a bit of money, but this will make a big difference in beating that mission.

The Three Musketeers: The Game / Where to find all the sidequests
« on: November 18, 2009, 04:20:14 PM »
I've had a lot of questions about where to find the various sidequests, so here is a list of them all. They are ordered based on their location in the achievement screen. If you want the challenge of exploring the world and finding these on your own... well then I guess you shouldn't read any further.  ;)

Row 1: Column 1: Gamble with the Cardinal's Guards inside "Cardinal's Guards Inn". Located in South-West Paris, to the right of Pre-aux-Clercs.
Row 1: Column 2: Go upstairs in the Louvre and talk to Marin le Bourgeoys.
Row 1: Column 3: Talk to Jean-Mark the Cheese Producer in South-West Meung
Row 1: Column 4: Donate money to priest in front of Notre Dame
Row 1: Column 5: North most house in St. Germain (Jetter House), talk to brothers.
Row 2: Column 1: Talk to Phillipe, outside Leblanc house in northern Paris.
Row 2: Column 2: Talk to man in house on the right in Crevecoeur (city on the way to Calais).
Row 2: Column 3: Talk to man upstairs in Ferrand house in Tarbes
Row 2: Column 4: (Must have already completed main quest) Go into Palais Cardinal to the room where Cardinal Richelieu was often standing, talk to the person there.
Row 2: Column 5: Talk to Guardsmen in Paris by the exit to St.Cloud/St. Germain (just to the left of Hotel de Treville)
Row 3: Column 1: Talk to lady in Du Manoir house in St. Cloud.
Row 3: Column 2: Talk to the man in the bottom right house in Calais.
Row 3: Column 3: Talk to bread vendor in Les Halles market in Paris.
Row 3: Column 4: (Must have made it to La Rochelle missions in main story) Talk to French Spy in Dover, England.
Row 3: Column 5: Talk to Guardsman in Paris by the exit to the North (the one above Palais Cardinal).
Row 4: First: (Must have already complete Marin mission) Talk to Monsieur Beaumont in Beaumont house in Paris (above Les Halles)
Row 4: Second: Beat all the tennis challenges (talk to Tennis Referee).
Row 4: Third: Beat the main story and all the other achievements.

Let me know if anything here isn't clear enough.

I believe that 15 is actually a lazy guy leaning on his musket  :) Go up to the entrance to Paris right above Palais Cardinal. Talk the a man called "Lazy Guardsman"

I actually just replied to someone else about 9. You need have finished the main storyline, then into Palais Cardinal, into the room where Cardinal Richelieu was often standing. Talk to the man there.

Sorry, I was gone on a short vacation for a few days, and I just got a new computer which I have been setting up...

You're right, second row, fourth column isn't the Phillipe one. It only shows up once you have beaten the main story (which you have). Go into Palais Cardinal and into the chamber where Richelieu was often standing. There is a certain man there which you should talk to.

For sure, I've been meaning to put up a guide for all the side quests. I can quickly tell you where these are:

1. Gamble with the Cardinal's Guards in the "Cardinal's Guards Inn" - It's on the south western part of Paris, just to the right of the Pre-aux-Clercs.
2. Talk to Phillipe outside the Leblanc house (northern Paris)
3. Talk to Monsieur Beaumont in Beaumont house (to the left of Leblanc house)
4. Complete the game (Get all the other achievements)

I hope I got those right. Let me know if you can't find one, or if I messed up and you already have any of those. However, I'll be without internet for a few days, so I won't be able to get back to you right away.

The endurance levels are sort of a throwback to the original "eat 'em up" game Shark Shark. So they are supposed to be really challenging. And the third endurance level is particularly hard. Probably the hardest in the game.

I think that your strategy of staying in the middle of the level is good - it gives you more directions to run if an amoeba comes after you. I can't say there are too many other tips... it's really a question of endurance ;). Let's see... If your hand is getting tired, you could pause the game (space bar) and rest for a bit, or you could use the arrow keys instead of the mouse. One thing that might help is to turn the "Grey Goo Speed" all the way up in the options menu. This will make the grey goo respond more quickly to your mouse movements.

You could try playing really conservatively. By that I mean don't go chasing after really tiny superclusers, just go for the ones that are closer to your own size (and will therefor have a greater growth effect on you).

If you get Gravity Well cheat and turn it on, the game won't save any progress that you make. Same with any cheat that actually helps you. Purely cosmetic cheats like the rainbow goo still allow you to progress. The cheats are just to play around with, they won't help you get higher medals.

The Three Musketeers: The Game / Re: The Game Keeps Going After I Beat It
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:33:44 AM »
Once you have completed the main story, you can continue playing the game. There are about 17 side-quests to complete. If you go to the main menu and click on "Achievements", you can see all the side-quests the you haven't completed yet. You can find all the side-quests by talking to characters in the world. For example, if you talk to one of the Guardsmen on the western entrance to Paris (towards St. Cloud), a side-quest will activate.

So even though the main story is over the game doesn't really end. You can go around to the Musketeer's houses and see what they are doing differently now (or to Madame Coquenard's house for Porthos). There is a few other little things in there after the game is over. For example, just above the convent in Bethune...

Talk to a Guardsman named Julien. He is standing at the edge of Paris, on the road to St. Cloud and St. Germain (to the left of Hotel de Treville).

Tasty Planet / Re: Can't Beat the Last Level
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:12:57 AM »
There is something to eat, but you have to find it... Start the level by moving up and right. You have to get to the center of the level. Or just search the level randomly until you find it. You can't really see it, but you're "indicator arrow" will help point the way if you get close enough.

Le me know if you still can't beat the level.

Tasty Planet / Re: What does "Gravity Well" do?
« on: November 04, 2009, 04:08:36 AM »
It's actually a pretty neat cheat. Hold down the mouse button - it will turn your goo into a gravity well - sucking objects towards you.

Laser Dolphin / Re: Do I get an actual copy??
« on: November 04, 2009, 03:34:37 AM »
No, all of our games are currently download only. When you order the game you will receive a download link to the full version. I've considered mailing out copies of the games, but it would probably be more hassle than it's worth (most people just want an instant download).

Jack of All Trades / Re: Why Is Every System Attacking Me?!!!
« on: November 04, 2009, 03:05:29 AM »
There are 5 governments in the game: Mutteran, Roboto, Kermodian, Independent, and Pirate.  The governments have relations with each other so if you blow up one of their allies, they will get angry at you.  This is why the different systems and ships turned red. You probably inadvertently blew up an independent ship (or maybe just hit it with stray fire a few too many times).

All you have to do to make a government like you again, is destroy their enemies.  None of the governments like pirates, so if you go around blowing up some pirate ships then the governments will start to like you again and their planets and ships will turn blue again.

Blowing up ships that are involved in missions does not count toward your government relations.  This means that you can't just blow up pirates from bounty hunting missions.  The easiest way to find some pirates to blow up would be to go to a pirate system.  ( When you have a ship selected look in the target info box to make sure that it is a pirate ).

If you want to know exactly how much the different governments like you, go to the pilot info screen and look in the "Government Relations" box.  Positive numbers mean they like you, negative numbers mean that they don't.  To get to the pilot info screen click on the second button from the left, on the bottom left of the screen.  You can see the button labeled here: http://www.dingogames.com/jack/instructions/flightscreen.htm

I hope that helps. To sum it up: go destroy some pirates.
