I know that I'm supposed to turn the light on and then follow with using the "time" option on the second lamp post but when I try to do that I'm not able to open interaction til the light burns out. Over and over.

 

Not sure what I'm not doing or if its a bug.

If you stand close to the second lamp, you should be able to open the interaction wheel again after lighting the lamp almost instantly.

 

What happens when you try to open the interaction wheel?

I get the icon that we are supposed to click on to open the wheel but I can't open the wheel til the light burns out again.

 

And I've done all the talking to/about the guy that there is. That's why I'm so stuck!

Have you tried slowing time down first, then activating the light? I forget which I did first.


If at first you don't succeed, do it like your mother told you.

Hm. Are you playing with a controller or Mouse / Keyboard? If the latter, standard mouse or trackpad? It shouldn't matter, I don't think, but I know some people had issues getting the timing of things right (like the falling dreamer) with a trackpad.

I'm sure this is part of the game design. try examine the guy first. Zoe needs to figure out he is the reason the light is suffering interference. She needs to read his mind and then talk to him. Then you get more options on the light.

Then it sounds like it might be a bug. Try restarting the game.

It should be just 4 clicks in quick succession, very easy with a mouse (don't hold down the mouse button, just get under the lamp, click to bring forth the circle, click light, click again to bring forth the circle, click slow time. I've never heard anyone having an actual bug at this sequence so it would be weird if you're the only one. See the video also).

Funny thing: I never got the "this lamp won't last long enough" sequence because I was clicking both "light" and "slow time" on all lamps just for the fun of it (slow-moving sparks, Ooooooh pretty! lol) so I got it right with the first try! I then saw what is really supposed to happen in a play through.

I think that hint that Zoe gives is unskippable. I got it on all my playthroughs of that sections, and they have been quite a few of them (only for the first sections of the game).

 

Also, guys the OP specifically mentioned the second lamp puzzle. Some of you are talking about... something else.

I just wanted to share my good news. After a month, I finally got past the lamps. I thought maybe it was a mouse issue so I purchased a gamepad. Unfortunately, though I learned playing with a gamepad is better than a mouse, it didn't fix the problem. And neither did the new patch.

 

Finally, I just stripped the game down to its bare essentials this afternoon and turned off anti-aliasing, shadow, and flares. I don't know exactly which did the trick but I'm finally to the next dream!

 

Thank you for all suggestions and trying to help.

Thanks for getting back to us, most ppl don't. We'll file this one away for future reference.

 

Enjoy the rest of the game !

:( Sorry to hear you're having issues again. That seems quite odd. Do you get a non-responsive radial menu or is it completely inactive/the hot spot is missing?
