The Fortress Door Bug
Another common problem, but this one seems to be caused by the DOS 7 that comes with Windows 9x. When trying to get into FunFrock's fortress on Principal Island, sometimes the doors leading into the fortress don't open, even though you hear the sound and the key icon shows above Twinsen's head. If this happens, there are a number of things you can try: 1. go into zoom mode (F5) and then back to normal view (thanks to FenikS for that hint), 2. read the Book of Bù, and when you return to the game they should open (thanks to Leviat on the MBN forums for that) or 3. just wait around for a while!

Yep, this is a common issue. Check http://www.sendellswell.co.uk/bugslba1.html for details.

EDIT: Damn you, wacko

like i sent to that site ages ago.. read the book of bu and it'll open instantly

you cna skip it, you don't have to hear the dialogue or wait for the text to finish.. just keep pressing the button till you're back in the game and you'll see it open

Before I knew other methods I always ran around a while as well. Or made sure I left some enemies alive before entering the door and then beating up the last guards.
