The Car Isn't Working Properly

And here was me thinking that I'd solved all the problems with LBA 2 on my computer, and that it would be all alright! But, when I went to Desert Island and I start driving the car that Twinsen's wife has fixed, it only goes very slowly and doesn't turn properly. Like, when I want to turn left, even though I can see the wheels turning on the axels, the car just carries on in a straight line. The sound of the engine sounds very monotonic also.

What can I do? I'm not going to be able to get into the School of Magic if this isn't solved.

Thanks in advance!

The car bug is sooo old that I'm actually too bored repeating what's already in the troubleshooting guide. Basically, there's no fix, you have to drive up the mountain backwards and then jump down.

Oooh, I didn't realise there was a troubleshooting guide! I need to look around more before posting. Thanks for the help, Kobold!

You can also Jump-save-bug up to the flower.

Yet, I've experienced that bug too, but to me it seemed it was hardly any problem driving it anyway, you could change angle by turning backwards or something.

I personally never had that bug until this year...
You might find if you start again it sorts itself out.
I think it's a bit hit and miss though.

yeah well it's a mistery to me on how it appears ... now I have it, if I reinstall my OS I don't have it and so on ...
"Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well, yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless." --- Paul Bowles
