Chapter 5

Okay so I finished the swordfight, and I got the bone and the anchor, and haven't managed do do anything at the thief's place. At the thief's place, I got the hint to use the dog to find lechuck's treasure, but I don't see any dog? Help on what to do next?

  • Where is that? Also how do I catch the parrot thongs.

  • I finally solved the problem...turned out that I didn't get the damn list of ingredients from Galeb...as soon as I got them, Guybrush finally started doing what he's meant to lol.

  • @andjamwar said: you already have this 'item'

    You'll have to be more specific. I'm trying to get the sextant, he's turning his back, I pick it up, he hauls my arse outta there and takes back the sextant. I have NFI how to go about this.

  • Stuck on Episode 5. I'm trying to get the secret from the thief. I know what I have to do, but it doesn't appear to be working. I have Lechuck's belt buckle, and I show it to the thief, and he gives me his whole trust speech. But, when I click on the secret after that, I'm still unable to take it...I just get the same canned response about him not knowing what the secret is.

    I have the Steam version, BTW. Am I missing something, or have I run into a bug? I'm so close to solving this and ending the whole series, and now I'm stuck on this one step that I figured out how to do in the first place...it just won't seem to work. Help!

    If you haven't checked your other thread, let me restate this. You're actively trying to use the belt. It's a passive object that makes you more trustworthy. You don't need to rub it on the thief to gain his trust. Just take the secret and leave. This time he won't steal from you.

  • Yep, I checked the other thread (apologies for the double post...posted here first and then thought that I should start a thread for it). I've also tried just walking into the thieves den and clicking on it as you suggested, and I get the same result. I have the belt buckle in my inventory, but I can't pick up the secret. I also tried showing it to the thief again (several walkthroughs suggested this was necessary), and he gives me the trust speech...and then I'm still unable to pick it up. I'm at a loss for what to do. More and more, it appears to be some sort of bug. It makes me want to whip out a hex editor and see if I can figure out how to hack the stupid save file just to put the secret into inventory so that I can continue with the game. Aargh.
