First Sam & Max Game Help

posted by Anonymous on - last edited - Viewed by 231 users

I am PSYCHED about the release of the new Sam & Max game but I need help beating the first one. I use Windows but once upon a time I used Macs. I have the wires hooked up and the magnifying glasses on the binoculars in the rotateing resturant in the Worlds Largest Ball of Twine. Because I must run it on a Mac, there is only one mouse button. How do I stop the binoculars? :(( :-/

  • Funny, when I encountered this part of the game the first thought that popped into my head was "How did this work on a Mac?"

    Unfortunately I don't know the answer. :(

    I do not know the answer to this one, either.

    You just have to click the right or left side of the needle on the binoculars, don't you?

    Otherwise, use the keyboard. ENTER is the left mouse button, TAB is the right.

    Hope that helps!

  • I was going to suggest playing it on a PC with ScummVM, but it seems like The Tingler actuallly knows what he's talking about. :D

    As a Mac user I had exactly the same problem, I got around it I just can't remember how. Have you tried a CTRL Click or  Click I cant remember if these work or not. Alternatively get a cheap 2 button mouse and your problems will be solved.

    Will any of TellTale's games be ported to Mac in the future?

  • It took me good 5 minutes to work out how to operate those damned binoculars even with a mouse with more than one button.

    EDIT: Whoops, sorry. Didn't notice that the following is a direct copy of what TheTingler says.

    In my manual for the game (for windows) it claims that you have to click on either side of the needle to make it go in either direction. I can't try this out due to my not having a handy save near that section, but maybe trying and clicking on either the top (middle) section or clicking on the other side of the needle from where it's already pointing may change the speed of how fast the binoculars are travelling at.

    In other (simpler) words, if the needle is pointing to the left try clicking on the right section of the little semi-circle that the needle is in. Hope this helps (and you can actually understand what I'm rambling about!).
