To search the cabins for bandits...

Just drag your lawmen onto the cabins. You may have to search all of them. Once they see the bandits, shoot the house.

What is the secret trophy, I have all but that and 10 train disasters... Thanks to boopbug and everyone who has answered all my questions!

I can't get the final scene to start. I completed the train race and everyone left. But my train is stopped at one of the track gates. There's also a guy named Lyle Ross who's been standing in town for a while but i missed what he wanted so I have no idea what to do with him or to get the game to end.

I beat the game, and still was unable to unlock the last luxury item. I'm playing again (as Henry, to mix it up), and managed to complete all the market place quests. I've done both of the log shapes, but still haven't managed to unlock the last build item. Can anyone tell me what it is and how to get it unlocked?

Reply

The other luxury item is...

the clock tower. See above for how you get it.

Can anyone tell me how to beat the Father Rescue as Henry? He's by himself and as soon as he digs his way out of his cell, he dies!
I can't get past it and I can't go back and change to Anne's plan either...

I can't get past the father rescue mission (Henry's way). As soon as he digs out of the cell he gets killed and I can't switch to Anne's way. Help!!!

I am at the "Railroad Expansion Again" point in the game. It says that I need to build a second coal mine, but I've already exhausted all of my coal mines. How do I get past this point in this case?

I need help, I am at the "work for skill", I have exhausted all my mines, what cant i do to get him skilled as a miner?

See if you have small piles of gold or coal on the ground. Have him mine those.

Rat treasure location for Henry:

Located under dead tree, extreme right of screen, next to embankment. Blow up tree with dynamite and drag giant key bearing rat over to it.

Really enjoying this game, can't figure out how to get all of the clothes though. also, do I have to complete all market place quests to get the final mystery item? Sorry Boopbug but I didn't understand your earlier spoiler on this.

What is the second trophy that needs to be unlocked?

I am in the River Clean up and it says I still have 1 Barrel left to find but I can't find it! I have even torn down all my bridges then rebuilt them just so I could look under them. How can I find the barrel??

Reply

***I am having a hard time building gold mines. When I try to build them I always get a message that says the mine is blocked (these are mines that look like a rock stuck in a hole). I have tried irrigating but that has not made a difference. What do I need to do differently?***

Hi jguest,

This is a little late and may not even apply but someone has to dig the gold or coal down before the mine can be placed there. Just right click on it with ur hero or townsperson. Hope that helps.

Reply

To find the last barrel, start at the top of the screen and slowly come down the river. Also, check in the pond and just below it.

How do I rescue father. I have brought cheese back to the rats and I can't get them to do anything. I don't know how to cause a distration, I have blown things up, etc. I have the weight already on the train switch, I'm just stuck now.

If you look in the upper right, you will see a small boxy canyon with a coal mine. Next to it you will see whitish ground. This is where you will irrigate and build the farm. Once it is employed, you will get the peas.

Good Luck!

Is anyone else having problems with the mad hatter when he requests the sheriff model? I drag her to the hat shop and after she walks over she just stands there. Also I only found one wolf on the other side (after building bridges). Plenty of bear, dear and rabbits but not a single wolf (after the initial one). Any suggestions? Thanks!

A railroad repair quest has popped up between the locations of "The Last Coal Miner" and "Brockway". I had no problem finishing the quest, but it says there should be 2 hidden objects on that screen. I have looked until my eyes are crossed and I can't seem to find either one of them!!! I haven't had any problems finding these objects on any of the other screens so I'm baffled. Can anyone help?

To get to the pond...

Walk down the river from the pond. You will see a pile of rocks next to the river. Below the rock will either be a cave (Anne) or coal mine (Henry) Blow up the rocks and jump down the tunnel. Walk up the river to the pond. Once you get to the waterfall, walk up the right side bank and fish until you get the key. Then break up the wagon and get the treasure.

Gook Luck!

Buffalo

Did you do the buffalo quest? Did you rescue the kidnapped buffalo? You can only put the bakery boxes down after you have rescued the buffalo and the buffalo and man have left.

yes i did all that but still nothing

Be sure you put the boxes directly in the middle of the field where the buffalo were. It's grassier then the rest of the field.

Father Rescue

Your hero will awaken locked-up in a cell, after hero speaks, start digging the spot inside the cell, wait until the female guard goes inside the cell to the left, jump in the hole and hurry to the long hallway on the right, make sure the guards don't see you, go around to the cell where your posse is being held, hero speaks to them and they tell em that they need their guns first. Go back down the hallway to the square spot on the floor, do not step on it until the guard is inside the cell with the other guard, now hurry to the hallway to the left move down so as not to be seen, when the next guard go inside the cell at the top of the screen hurry to the left side, do not be seen because they will get you and you have to start over, wait for the female guard to go inside with the other guards, now hurry to the right cell, the guns are inside here, after getting them go back the same way you came in, when you get to the hallway again wait until the male guard go inside the room, now hurry to the left room, all the way to the 50lb weights, pick them up and when the guard is inside the room again hurry to where your posse is being held, put the weight on the first square, then have your hero step on the other square, this opens the doors, now you have enough fire power to rescue your hero's father. Good Luck!

To plant trees:

you must get seeds from the goods market $100.00 a packet. You must build the Goods Market, then give the packets to a worker and he/she will plant them and the trees grow instantly.

Warning - don't let your fat rat (rat treasure) be shot by a bandit. Before I could complete this quest, I was chasin a bandit down when he stopped, turned, and shot my rat. Quest cannot be completed. I completed this quest the first time I played and this was my second game. If you cycle thru your law enforcement, you will notice the dogs and rat are listed.

Anyone know what to do in volcano valley? the walk through only goes to Ogdenville and all my stuff keeps getting blow up by lava rocks

Reply

Volcano Valley...

Build the town. You will need to get a mine working, lumber camp, and coal mine. Build cabins to get people. Check the train tracks frequently. If they are damaged, you will run out of water. Repair buildings frequently. Build all the buildings you can and flower, parks, etc. to get town happiness up. Build a sheriff's office and hire a sheriff and deputies. Go to the right and up and fight the bandits. Buy dynamite and go to the upper right and blow up the rocks to get to the other bandits. Blow up the other rocks to get to the fossil.

Good Luck!

Is there a way to repair all the buildings at the same time instead of getting individuals to go to each building? It gets tedious when you have a LOT of them and earthquakes keep happening. Sigh. Thanks for the help!

No, you have to repair by dragging a person to the building.

Frank LaChance December 29, 2009 9:33 PM

Volcano Valley....I completed it yet Paris Hilton hasn't arrived for my 1500....any ideas on when this will happen?

Real Estate Quest.... One tip I can give is to slowly build your town using available resources (Gold and Wood). I built a well, a farm (upgraded this to avoid adding a house to repair from earthquakes and gain 2 townsfolk), I ONLY bought the gold mine and then demolished it to avoid it getting bought back and built my own.

As I gained resources I would buy the buildings one at a time and demolish them, collect the resources and keep trucking!!

Bandit Tip** get close enough to them when they are in a group and lead them off one at a time, back and forth, until you can either get round tem undetected or pick them off one by one instead of in a group.
