Hit the pipe?

I can't manage to do it to get the "soup" to roll down. I have been trying this puzzle for over an hour and I'm assuming a bad puzzle design, but I really need to do this.

  • After a few tests, okay several checks, I have discovered the answer to this problem is.... Click the pipe, then go to the corner for the cut scene to happen

  • That didn't work for me, for me it worked when I checked the alcohol barrels and then went left.

    I think I'll have to replay the game to check myself just exactly what it is =/

  • Wow this was the most stressful thing for me..even after hitting the pipe! lol..I love back to the future so it didn't matter i would have tried for years lol

  • Hi i got the same problem. Tried clicking on everything for 1.5 hours now, ive followed this thread on how to do it and im used to adventure games like the telltale games, lucas arts and so on.... but nothing. There is a glitch in the game and I would like to see Telltale to fix this. Im not off from my studies very often and i would like to get through this game asap for several reasons. There is a bug in the system.

  • Got the save file from user above. Worked great now with that save file, thanks. And I was right: it is a bug.

  • I've played twice now, and all I've had to do to trigger the scene was walk to the left after the goon brings the barrels inside. I checked the pipe earlier, when going to use the phone.

  • I did some messing around, and it seems to me like it may be based on the hint level that's currently set. I waited for a long time with a 0 hint level, and nothing happened. But when I increased my hint level to 4, the knocking on the pipe cutscene happened immediately.

    Unlike most of the other suggestions in this thread, this one makes a little sense. The hint level increases the frequency of certain types of events. These events are usually someone voicing a hint out loud, but presumably they can be any sort of periodic event. It looks like the "frequency at hint level 0" setting for the pipe knocking was set way too low, resulting in, perhaps, the guy only knocking once in a blue moon for people with a hint level set to 0. The fact that you need him to knock on it first, combined with the low knock rate, results in a major design flaw.

    This would be an incredibly easy fix, I'm sure. Any idea if there's an official place to send a bug report?

    i always set the hint level in telltale games to 0 and had no probs at all with hitting the pipe.

  • @PSI Guy said: I THINK I'VE FOUND IT.

    Click on the alcohol barrels several times and the normal soup barrel several times, then go to the left. That worked for me.


    I also did both for the several times like of what you did and i am very thankful that it worked for me too...................:winslow:

  • I have literally tired everything. I have played it on a separate computer, restarted the game and played through the game twice on each machine. I can not get the cut-scene to show. I am at a loss can someone please help.
