there should be an ocean liner that one could get on ( a substitute for a city ) and one could solve a mystery around the ship ( the grand salon, the kitchen, the boiler room, the cabin, etc. ) and a computer game of 21 could be in the grand salon. one could stay on the ship to solve mysteries but the ship would not have any treasure hunts and one could not buy an apartment on the ship. from time to time the ship would dock in shainghai, and everybody would be kicked off the ship and find themselves in shaingahi..the ship would stay in shainghai for say 3 days and fill up again ( perhaps a limit of 20 players only ) and then sail off so to speak to arrive in london two weeks later..then everybody would get kicked off and one could get back on to be the next 20...the deal is when the ship leaves port you do not know to which city it will travel next..you
take your chances and every two weeks it kicks you off...perhaps one could limit 20 players from always staying on the ship by either charging a higher and higher fee to get on if you kept getting on all the time to stay on the ship or perhaps the computer would just let the first 20 on or perhaps the computer would take the last 20 who just got off and not allow them to get back on in the next 3 days at all....it could be called "the sleuthetania"...

I am having the same "problem" Cordelia.

"I went to speak with Debbie Dingle, the Waitress.
Debbie was an important contact of mine and was always helpful in my investigations."

I don't know why this happens , maybe something related to our Cairo contacts? I have Waitress as a WE contact in Cairo too and as I see so do you! Tell me you also got the Waitress as a contact in the ship:P !

Oh , also , this contact is not displayed along with our other contacts in the "Detective" tab !

Yep, it's the waitress who's being inexplicably nice to me! I also noticed she wasn't displayed in the contact list.

Anyone else?

Does she answer all your questions too?

Why can't I get this "bug"? :D

@ Ketamine : If I am right about this (which is unlikely) , then you have to have the Waitress contact in Cairo in order to "activate" this bug...

The Waitress is the only townie-ship staff that Cairo and the Sleuthetania have in common...If they had another contact in common (f.i. Bartender) we could possibly back up my first suspicion...For now , it seems to be a truly unbelievable and almost crazy coincidence !

I also have the waitress as a contact on the ship and in cairo. Looks like that makes 3 of us.

I have no Cairo contacts so I haven't experienced that problem but I am having trouble with the map screen. As soon as I ask Simon Burke a particular question, I have XML issues. I was hoping to find a solution on the boards...

Bugs:

1) In the scripted mystery, one suspect has an alibi with a contact that has nothing to do with being in a ship. (I hope this isn't a spoiler.)
2) Dead end? After finding a certain number of suspects, I couldn't do anything else!

Question:

So I can't leave the ship? I can only leave after three days? Doesn't seem so nice to stay here for the next three days since there are bugs. It was a quite interesting tour though.

And there are no fortune tellers. Can't check if I have the complete suspect list.

Allengu, you obviously haven't checked everywhere.
