Counterfeit Coin

Postby Pka4916 » Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:08 pm

I am stuck on this quest.
I talked to the Inkeeper, Berg and the lady behind the Inn, and no clue what to do.
Berg doesn't say anything, and looking through guides and forums, I only found 1 item that I don't have.
and that's the Counterfeit Coin.
How do I get that coin?

I did notice that I have 10 Gold coins in my inventory, but no clue what to do with that. since I can't do anything with them.

What am I missing here?

Thank you

When you talk to the innkeeper and he gives you the quest, he also gives you a "Coin". Thats the counterfeit coin being talked about. You must have that "Coin" in your possession when you talk to Berg. If you have high enough Persuade, you can make him confess.

It seems you have either dropped or sold the coin somewhere. If you cannot get it back, you cannot finish the quest.

Weird. I don't recall doing any of that. Selling / dropping the coin.

I had sent you a save file, would you be able to see that?
Reason I did that, was I was stuck with another mission, and needed 2 plants. I had found 1 but could not find the other one at all. so I headed back to the person I got the mission from, and I was able to complete the mission. I had found 1 plant in my inventory, but not the other one.. and I did give both to the person. so that's why I am wondering if some items are not showing in the inventory? or have maybe a different name.
it was the Idol item from the cave that wasn't showing.

I haven't got any files, but I don't think the inventory has any problems. The Quest has been out for a long time now.

I had sent them by e-mail.

But here are the save files

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4jcga5xcdr56p ... .save?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1p9vqajtqkbjy ... .save?dl=0

I don't know if you can see if the coin is there?
And will that mission be stuck in my list then forever then? I am 100% sure that I didn't sell the coin.

There was no save attached to your email.

In any case, I've now added the missing coin and sent you the save.

Thank you, I responded back with a new link

https://www.dropbox.com/s/y2c6hl23bnhuk ... .save?dl=0

Since the save was several days old, and maybe you can add it to that one?
I'll stop playing till then.

btw. I did see the Idol object in the inventory, but not a coin?

Mail sent. Just this once. Won't be doing this any more. ;)

There was no idol in your inventory in either saves. Maybe your install of the game became corrupted? I recommend a full reinstall...

Is there a patch for this? I think the water seller next to the town, Aguruk I think, takes the coin in exchange for water. So I lost mine, and this quest is now unclearable. I think this is a common problem, I don't have the coin and I only played fire and ice for about an hour.

Hmm, that sounds familiar. I wonder if that's what happened to me.

We won't update the game any more (it has received more than it's fair share of updates ;)).

And it's an old school game, although it has received "convenience" updates in the past. Generally you should be careful and if not, at least keep saves. :) The game is not designed to hold your hand and unfinishable quests are possible.
