Lights, Camera, Subtraction HELP!
What is with that black control room? It’s killing me!! I can rarely get past it even using all of my “cheats”. I can’t see a thing, could they make it any darker? I admit I have an OLD monitor and I have to have the brightness turned down as low as possible otherwise my eyes hurt, but I just can’t find what I’m supposed to be finding 90% of the time. They’re just not there until I use a “cheat’, then they appear.
Any helpful hints on this one?
I know to just randomly click in the middle left edge because although I see nothing it usually gives me a hit.
I know about the floor, the paper pad, sometimes the monitors are different, but at the end it flashes red circles around a half dozen things that are invisible to me.
Also, could they make the Wolfgang Puck picture any blurrier? I can’t make out most of what is in that picture.
Can you pause the game?
I have memorized most of the items. An easy 100 points.
That “Control Room” is the worst! There are 2 areas on the left side, one on the bottom and one on the top that no matter how much I brighten my screen I cannot see anything there. I only know there is always the possibility that there is something there so I just click those 2 areas. Of course this wastes time if nothing if there.
I play this game all the time and will never be the Pro’s that Cindy and Trekky are. It is fun to see which one of them will beat who everyday! It totally astounds me at how they can achieve the scores they do.
The game does at times frustrate me but I really think this game helps my brain and that is why I keep playing. I have concluded my brain just doesn’t work as fast as others, and I’m OK with that. If playing helps my brain out at all – it’s worth the effort to keep playing and challenging myself.
Trekky and FBN came to my rescue some time ago about this game and there answer was “practice, practice, practice.” I couldn’t believe them for a while but I know now that is the only answer for improving at this game. I’ve never formally thanked then, so I hope you don’t mind me using your post to say
Thank you Trekky and FBN for your encouragement to keep me playing!
Thank you velveteen, Trekky and FBN, I guess before I play I will have to turn the brightness up on my monitor and the screen shots are a good idea. It irks me that they throw things in at the last moment that weren’t there before, sometimes without giving you time to click on them. Oh well, i’ll keep practicing.
Thanks to all of you again for the hints!!! :womanvery-happy:
Hi Myra….Good answers by Trekky and Velvet. I think it takes two things to get good at this game. 1. Practice, practice, practice. 2. And sorry to say, a good monitor with high resolution and brightness. But, don’t take my word for it….I am not in the same class with these two ladies, at least not with this game…..
?, first of all, yes you can pause the game. Below all of the game hints is “pause”, “help”, “options”. All of those will pause the game, but it turns solid blue, so you cannot see anything.
I have to have this game on “bright” in order to see the objects. Of course I now know where everything is at, but they still get me once in a while, by not showing all the objects, till time is almost up!.. NO they were not there the whole time.
If you can take screenshots of each room and then study them, that will help you out.
Myra, the control room is the most difficult one to master for everyone but you will get there by doing it more. From memory here are the items in the control room to look for: red button on remote control, the 2 screens in the back (top), the larger monitors in the middle, right side – white pad and crinkled paper, the rug/mat by the chair, the silver square thing to the left of Adam and the dark long rectangular thing (don’t know what it is!) on the far left wall.
The Wolfgang puzzle is one of my fastest. I don’t see it blurry.
I’m not sure what you mean by pause. Obviously there are breaks between levels and there is a pause button on each screen but you cannot pause and look at the picture!
