EMI rock/canal puzzle issue
I'm having a problem with the throw-the-rocks-into-the-canal puzzle on Monkey Island. I know the order is right, middle, left, left, and I know how to time the throws just right with the branches, but it never works. I never even see any little scene where a boulder flies off a cliff at all. (Well, I did the very first time, but I messed up that time.) Do I really have to get it right on the first try or like, load an old savegame or something? Or is there something I'm missing? Like, a reset trigger? I tried leaving and doing some other puzzles then coming back already. Nothing changed.
For the life of me, I can't remember. But I'm sure I didn't get it right on the very first try last time I played this game.
Terrible puzzle, I know. :¬:
EDIT: Oh, wait, haha, I failed at reading comprehension, and you knew that already. But you should have the next rock already in Guybrush's hand and throw it literally as soon as a root moves. That's about all I can tell you.
If you're doing it right, the rocks should eventually collide with each other in such a manner that they divert onto other paths, with one ultimately going down the center hole.
Thanks for the advice! Oh, I swear I'm doing it right. I already had the rock in-hand and everything, but... man. I've deduced that whatever's going wrong is sometime in the later part of the puzzle; however, I still can't tell what it is. Even watching video walkthroughs isn't getting me anywhere.
EDIT: Ah-ha! Fixed. For some reason, the timing in my game was off. After some close observation, I discovered that I just had to throw one of the rocks a few seconds after the previous rock hit the branch. And I nailed it. ^^
