LBA2 - car stuck in School of Magic yard

While driving in the white leaf desert i entered the magic school courtyard with the car (by climbing the mountain). Now i cant get the car out of the courtyard. I can get Twinsen out of the courtyard but the car wont fit through the little sand road and gets stuck between the tree and the rock at the exit. The car also wont fit through the yard's gate. I tried to go back to citadel island hoping that the car will be in another location when i return to white leaf desert but the car is still in that courtyard and i just cant find a way to get it out. I wonder if there is one?! Or i should start the game all over again...

I thought if you left the car lying around long enough the guy at the racetrack took it and you had to try and win it back from him. I don't know if just leaving the island should have been enough to do that. Other than that I can't think of anything.

Although I didn't try this myself, but try saving the game while in the car and editing your position in the saved game with LBA2 Saved Game Editor.

EDIT: Whoops, the saved game editor freezes for me under Win7, maybe you should try changing the area code with the Area Code Hacker.

You can use the second car bug.
If you save the game while driving against the exit gate, and load the save WHILE pressing forward, you'll magically reappear beyond the gate (or anything else for that matter).

And yeah, the guy at the racetrack has been the rumor to be selling your car back if it was stranded somewhere you couldn't get it back. But I've never been able to trigger it (yet).

(Edit, I don't know if this bug can be used in the rerelease...)

they might not come at appropriate times.

Good for everyone is finding yourself first,

You just have to get out of your car on the top of the rock where the balsam flower is and then jump down without the car. This way you'll no longer be able to go back. The game will recognise this, the racetrack guy will have your car with him and will sell it to you for 50 Kashes (I think, but I can't really remember the exact price).

He gives you a clover if when racing him you drive behind him and take the same path he took.

I've just tried it, and having the car inside the cemetery doesn't count as an inaccessible place (which is understandable, since you are not supposed to be able to go there with the car).

He isn't... I think he'll give you a hint about something and a clover if you follow him closely, hence he says "Nobody can follow me. Try if you want.". The most important thing is that you shouldn't overtake him or he'll shout "Lost!" and you'll have to start again from the finish line.

So THAT's what he means! I never understood why I wasn't supposed to overtake him, I thought, what's winning a race with him if I'm not allowed to win? I should try following him soon. New stuff this!

The fact that you can buy a new car if you lost yours is for me a surprisingly good thinking by the developers.

Yeah, but if it only incorporates the car being stuck on the garden balsam plant, it could have been better
I must try this soon, but currently I'm busy with another project.

I genuinely thought that if you abandoned it somewhere random the guy found it for you. Maybe not.

No, beacuse finding the car is easy, the Holomap shows where it is in case you forget.

I guess it would have been complicated to code some kind of condition to check whether the car was located in an otherwise inaccessible area, instead of just a preset area like the hill with the flower

I guess you are not even supposed to be able to reach anywhere else with the car.

That must be it
I didn't know you weren't supposed to be able to get on the big mountain with your car from which all those saucers come out

Doesn't sound familiar at all...

I mean, the holomap arrow does point to the top of the mountain...

This doesn't mean you still don't know how to get into the base, right?!
You're supposed to walk Zoé into your car as soon as she has fixed it, get on top of that mountain with your car and Zoé in it, and when she walks out, she will have the key to the doors of the mountain leading down to the saucer. You should know that!

Erm, I mean, if you leave your car there, it will be inaccessible right?

There is also a bug. I once managed to enter the car at the start of the racetrack without it being there. When pressing space right at the starting position of the racetrack, without the car actually being there, I managed to enter it. The car teleported to that position. I haven't reproduced this but maybe it's a debug function left in.

I confirm that!!!
My memory recalls because it claims to have experienced this once somewhere in the past, and because of the fact that my mind had a meltdown, caused by some insanely incomprehensible magic.

You're welcome
It's also useful to get into the village, if you haven't got the time to get out of the car.
