I've tried everything. I'm on year two.
At the top area in the building with the cat race/etc, there's that big multi-colored cat in a glass case. I did something stupid and pulled out the scythe facing it and hit enter. Nothing happened except my controls wouldn't do anything. F1 worked, but moving Manny was impossible..
Now to even add to the stupidity, I even saved the game at this point. Unfortiantly I was using one save game most of the game and my last save game was near the beginning.
I've tried _everthing_, turning options off, reinstalling DirectX -- you name it, not working. So, if anyone has a save game near that point (year 2, right after you talk about getting the seabee equipment).
If this doesn't work I'll probably be forced to play it all over again (really dont want to do that), so if anyone can point me in the right direction to fix it or e-mail a save game -- do so at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help is appreciated.
