Cannot get to Syria
If you are stuck in the game and cannot get to the Syria section it is because you have hit a nasty bug which occurs if you play the game in a certain order. To avoid this bug you need to get the Marib clue from the Montfaucon sewers before going to Spain.
Game effectively crashes on the Goat Screen in Ireland
We believe this bug is caused when the game is saved in the pub cellar then subsequently restored. Please DO NOT save the game on the cellar screen.
Save Game not working in Ireland
Avoid saving the game on the Pub Cellar screen.
Can't interact with the Cat in Syria
Avoid saving the game on the Syria Market screen.
