    @Nightmare I'm still Writing on the walkthrough. There are Always 2 gunpowder barrels
    one for each hand. Could it be this or is it a bug?

    1) When you first filled the 2 barrels did you take them to the Chinese in the restaurant?
    (And got the Red key)

    2) Was there any mistake so you had to throw away a bad mixture and Jupiter provided you with more
    materials?

    It's strange that 4 barrels are there at the same time.

    While I try to fix this open PROGRAM\InternalSettings.h and set cheatmode = 1 at the end of the file.
    Start a new game and enter the wreck on the first shore. Choose Chinatown when Captain asks where to.

    This thread moved to the brand new "Gold-Bug" storyline subforum.
    Now that it is officially in the mod, it should have its own place for asking questions too. :woot

    I have played it now several times. You get the key and the chinese takes my 2 full gp barrels (at the same time).
    Really don't know what could have happened.

    Neither do I. It seems like the chinese never took your filled gp barrels but gave you the key. :confused:

    @Nightmare, I have to ask again: do you remember if you saw the chinese take your barrels
    or what happenend when you met him in the restaurant. (I know you got the key which can explain the 2 empty barrels)

    The game crashes when I try to start the GoldBug. It's the 17 oct version. I can start other storylines ok.

    Knowing that might help track down more of the problems in that "wild" version - I just started Gold Bug and finished first screen and moved on to the next ok with the latest zip (22nd) which has removed some of the potential causes of the problems.

    It works in my "Sunday 18 October 2015" + all recent fixes game version. That one is, however, more seriously bugged in different ways.
    Bit of a "rock and hard place" situation with the various game versions right now.
    We need a stable base, so I'm preparing doing a merge with the old, old Beta 3.3 internal version tomorrow.
    That is going to get tricky though....
