• I don't know how to save the game.
To save the game please do the following...
Provided you are not in middle of a conversation with someone, you can access the control panel by pressing the ESC or F5 key on your computer's keyboard. This will bring up the following list of options:
SAVE: Click on the this with the on-screen pointer to store your current position. A list of ten save game slots will appear. If there are already ten saved games, then click on the scroll bar arrows to the right of the display to scroll through the list. To save your game in a slot, simply point the cursor at an empty or previously used slot and press the left mouse button. Now type a name for your saved game, using the Delete key to remove an old name or correct mistakes, and press Enter when you're happy. To confirm the save, point the cursor over the Save button and click the left mouse button. Alternatively, click on Cancel to abort the save. Remember to give your saved games logical names, to help you remember at what stage you made them.
RESTORE: Select this option to abandon your current position in the game and re-load a previously saved position. Again, ten saved game slots will be displayed. Click on the appropriate saved position to load it. If the slot you wish to restore from isn't visible, use the scroll bar arrows to cycle the display through the slots. Once you've selected the position to load, click the cursor over the Restore button, or click on Cancel to abandon the restore.
RESTART: Warning - selecting this option will abandon your current position and begin the adventure anew. Only select this option if you are absolutely sure about starting from scratch. As a precaution, you will be asked to confirm the action. Point and click on the appropriate button.
EXIT: Exits the game and returns you to the MS-DOS prompt, or Windows 95 if Broken Sword was launched from there. The game will double-check that you're sure about your decision - simply click on the Yes or No buttons.
DONE: Select this to leave the Control Panel and return to the game proper.
VOLUME: Clicking on this option will bring up a mini mixing desk. Three volume dials are displayed, for speech, music and sound effects. Left clicking with the cursor at the top centre of a dial will raise the volume on both left and right speakers, while doing so with the cursor placed over the bottom centre of a dial will lower it. By moving clicking the left mouse button with the cursor to the left or right sides of the dial, it's possible to raise and lower the left and right channels separately.
SPEED: There are two playing speeds for Broken Sword, affecting the rate at which the view pans around as George moves through a location. Selecting this option will bring up a menu giving you the opportunity to select the faster ë H are' mode or the more sedate 'Tortoise' setting. If you find that the computer is displaying the screen slowly, particularly during panning, then it's a good idea to select the tortoise.
TEXT OPTION: If you wish subtitles to be displayed while you are playing Broken Sword then select the text option.
Press P to pause the game.
