Any way to redeem myself?

posted by Pak-Man on - last edited - Viewed by 723 users

So I thought in the snowmobile puzzle I had to go PAST the lights, not THROUGH them, and now I'm stuck with the shame of an imperfect puzzle score. When I retry the puzzle, it's still imperfect. Is there any hope of getting a perfect score, or would I have to start a new game to redeem myself?

I started from the football player in the upper-right, submitted it, and got rejected. Then I redid it with the exact same formation starting with the lower-right football player and got accepted. *sigh*

    On that one the first time I did it, for some reason I thought the goal was to connect every player possible without breaking a window. :o

  • One thing you could try is look at the hints, solve the puzzle and if you get a "Rejected" Alt F4 out of the game because it only saves after you leave the puzzle screen. When you start the game back up you can jump into the puzzle and solve it in one go.

    Ehm... it is? :confused:

    @ Mateo: Cheater.

    I mean, every possible connection without breaking a window, not just once per player.

  • Yeah, if this game achieves full series status (And I really do hope it does) Telltale will have to think of some better way to illustrate the puzzle goals...

  • @doodinthemood said: Heh, nobody's mentioned the "who got served what?" puzzle, so I'm guessing I'm the only one with a problem with that so far. I have done about 15 puzzles so far, with 10 on all of them, but 1 on that. I wasn't totally sure I knew what food the people looked like, then I started questioning whether or not they were sitting by their spouses, and whether across the table counted as being a plate next to another plate or not, and ended up just bombing the puzzle. Seems everyone else just wizzed through that one though :p

    I had some trouble with it, but the only one who didn't resemble any of the foods was burger guy. Other ones had at least something really specific about their resemblence.

    He's supposed to look like a cow or something, I think.

  • @NeatNit said: Agreed, and there was one puzzle that REALLY confused me. The one with the guards and midnight-to-midnight crap.

    Puzzle 1,2 and the one your speaking about are the only ones iv fully understood. The nine was silly and the fuse one i just got wrong first time....

    Buffalo. It's a buffalo burger.

  • @[TTG said: Yare;338285']If we were going to allow do-overs it would have been easier to leave out the scoring mechanism entirely. :)

    You should. If the player wants to keep track of how many times they had to try a puzzle to solve it, they'll do it outside of the game- it's the only score that truly means anything (since once you've figured out a solution, any future attempts will almost certainly be perfect). What counts as a mistake on the spectrum of incorrect submissions, from simple misunderstandings to brute trial and error, is a matter of personal discretion, and it shouldn't be necessary to "save scrub" or check against an external walkthrough just to satisfy the blind and unforgiving validation that keeps your playthrough safe from cosmetic smudges.
