Twinsen LBA2 Wizards rescue issue

Hello there guys

First of all I'd like to thank the forum creators for the forums, and everyone alltogether for their contributions.

I have an issue with rescuing the wizards near the end of LBA2. In short, what happens is that I do succesfully release them, but the female wizard gets stuck on the fox-like wizard. She can't walk past him and therefore the game doesn't proceed and I'm stuck in a cut-scene sort of thing, where I can't move at all(only option is to press Escape to get to the menu).

Does anyone have a save right past this moment, or does anyone know how to fix or bypass this moment?

Thanks in advance

Serious response: I think you can download gamesaves on the MBN main page (magicball.net) so you should be okay. I'd just try reloading it.

Asinine response: That's just because he's so foxy, the ladies can't resist him. She just has to get on top of him, no matter what.

Hehe, true that.
I'm pretty sure it's happened to me before, and I'm not entirely sure how I got around it but it was well before finding this site so I think it's like a one off thing. I think basically if you free the wizards again it should do the trick. It might have something to do with where the rest of the characters in hte room are positioned, including Twinsen and the enemies.

It usually works without destroying the telepod, but just for the reference, you can use Nitro-Meca-Penguins to blow the telepods up.

I never knew that either! o_o
But then again, I somehow only had 1 meca-penquin by the time I got the Isl.CX this time round, and I used it on the door sensor near the captive Mosquibee queen before I found out I didn't even need to.
I would love to have got rid of the telepods....

If you play the game in Win Xp or Vista, LBA2 characters walk in many directions, I've already explained this a 10 times

So, because of the high screen-resolution, characters get stuck because they don't walk straight.
Try this scene over and over untill the female-wizard doesn't got stuck.
Hope this helps.

The Mega-Penguin in the backstage area of Rick's Café has a bug - when you collect it, you lose all Penguins you previously had in your inventory. That's why you "somehow" ended up with only one.

Sorry it's not that easy.
This resolution accords to your desktop resolution and monitor size.

It won't work, 'cause when you launch LBA (and many other games), it changes the resolution to the highest compatible with the game.

What worked for me is pressing the windows key/alt tabbing out and looking at this thread, than magically when I got back in the game she got unstuck.

Solution to this bug

I originally encountered this bug and there is a permanent solution to it: Here is the thread. Download the file by Kobold and replace the old one with it. You will never encounter the bug ever again!

I just want to end all of these threads about the same problem. The USA scene file is corrupted, or something. The original release one works.

I think it has something to do with FunnyFrog's graphic patch.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not making fun of you

Yeah, that's true, but the USA version is actually the "original" one, meaning it's the earlier one (according to file modification date).

If my Scene file fixes the issue, FunnyFrog's patch can't be the cause. It only modifies the executable.

- Kobold: Noone ever said the Wizards getting stuck issue has to do with FunnyFrog's patch. The Wizards issue that has to do with said patch is that of the Wizards already being freed and gone when you first enter the room, which is a different issue.

Oh I see. Strange, I got confused with all of these "wizard problem" threads around here.
