Stuck in Rubacava

Hello,

I have the following problem:

I used the panel in Mannyīs office right at the beginning, and the police officer left the casino right away, saying he hopes to have more luck when he returns to the casino later in the evening. Now Iīm at the end of the Rubavava part, and the only thing I still have to do is get Glottis away from the race track by having the casino closed, but the officer is not there. What do I have to do to get him back to the roulette table? Or did I forget something else? Thanks!

I don't think you need to see Police Chief Bogan at the roulette tables to get the casino closed down. Just use the panel in Manny's office again.

I have done that already for several times, nothing happens. I think the police chief has to be there, because I read in a walkthrough that he has to lose two times before he closes the casino.

yes, the police chief must be in there. First off are you sure you have done everything you needed to do in year 2? That means, are you sure you filled out the first three requirements to get on the boat (tools, union card, free spot).

I think I have done all that: I have the union card, Naranja is asleep in the tattoo studio and pronounced dead, and the bees have layed down their tools. I canīt pick them up myself, but as far as I know this is not necessary.

Is this after you've got Terry out of jail?

Don't worry about how you got the police chief out of your casino in the beginning, I did that and he still came back. Which of the three requirements to get on the boat did you last do? Where were you when you finished the last one and where are you now?

My advice for now, just to humor me, go to the cat race track and walk back from there to your casino. Make sure you check the roulette tables yourself to confirm he's there.

Otherwise, if you haven't talked to Max yet try talking to him now, and then walk back to your casino. I didn't have to do this, but I may have had a glitch.

You need to get Glottis away from the race track by having the casino close, not Manny's nightclub. I am getting confused by what you mean when you say casino.

Manny's nightclub and casino are the same thing, you close both down.

Did you talk to the sailor, the one who keeps fishing you out of the drink? (what's his name people?). You have to talk to him to confirm you did all the things you needed to do to get on the ship, thus the only thing left is to get Glottis.

The place where Glottis is betting on the racetrack is different than Manny's nightclub.

I donīt want to confuse or stress anybody, Iīm just a littlt frustrated because I canīt go on playing. UberSkull, as you wrote, I have to close down Mannyīs casino/nightclub to get Glottis away from the racetrack. DuMan, I have talked to the sailor already, it ends with Manny saying he will go and pack his things. I am seriously thinking about playing the whole Rubacava part again without using the stupid panel in the beginning just to see if this was the mistake...

There is Manny's Nightclub and Maximino's Casino, they are separate places. Glottis' credit at the casino is based on his part ownership of the nightclub. When the nightclub is closed then Glottis has no credit to gamble with and is kicked out of the casino.

It makes no difference if you have already used the panel in Manny's office at the start of the game. I have done this before and had no problems finishing the level.

Is Naranja pronounced dead by the mortician? or is he just sleeping at the tatoo parlour? Once Naranja is pronounced dead, then Membrillo closes the mortuary and goes home.

When using the panel in Manny's office, you should be able to hear the voice of Police Chief Bogan when he loses. This verifies he is gambling at the roulette wheel. When you press the button you can hear Bogan complaining. It is needed to press the button at the correct time to activate the magnet in the roulette wheel so that Bogan loses.

Stupid me... I did everything necessary, but didnīt save everything. I have the patch and a tool to slow down the cpu, but now and then the game crashes and I have to restart. I have just checked the inventory and found that Naranjaīs badge was still there, although I had already thrown it on one of the corpses before... However, thanks for your help.

how did you already throw it into one of the corpses before? Did you throw it in the wrong corpse? Did you see Manny throw it in? Didn't the morticion find the dog tags and pronounced Naranja dead? I'm confused.

As I wrote, my game crashes from time to time, and I think this must have happened shortly after I had thrown the badge on the corpse, so I didnīt save this part. After restarting I think I just have forgotten to do the badge stuff again. Thatīs all.
