Game: Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Serrated Scalpel


ScummVM Version: 2.0.0

Bug Details: In St. Bernard’s Public House (billiards) I’ve already bribed the spectator, and he told me to speak to Nobby.

When I click on Nobby, he tell's me to wait until he's not busy. But he's stuck in that state, and both Nobby and Jock are standing still, neither one is playing.

Hmmm.. whatever the problem is that caused the "freezing", it's already happened, so it's kind of hard to figure out why. Do you have a savegame from just before you went to the public holiday? Maybe see if the problem keeps happening for you or not. This may be the result of some original bug manifesting from, for example, talking to one of the NPCs at the exact wrong instant.

Apologies, but then I can't really do anything. I don't have any handy saves either for around that part of the story. If you want to keep playing the story, you might want to peruse the list of closed/fixed Serrated Scalpel bugs on the bugtracker, though. Some of them might have savegames attached that are close to or just after that point in the game, so at least you'll be able to keep playing
