Post early on bug?...can't place gator on server in pdx?
8/7

Hi

Title says it all

on replay (1st timne in 5 years) I have joined King Kashue
I went to the 3rd floor of pdx to disable damping field...done.
Then went to 2nd floor to place 'gator' (that large black book-looking thing) on the server,after which one is supposed to use a multitool.

I have tried for 40 minutes, from every angle,standing,crouching,whatever,on the front on the sides, and the gator black thing will NOT 'place' on server
Its supposed to attach automatically (by electromagnetism)...it does not

If I press the use key (right mouse) it just makes the gator leave one's hand until one then goes to hold it again
this is the room where if you don't do it quickly,the poison gas will kill you

Any ideas?

i have a vague memory when I played the game 5 years ago I could also NEVER PLACE the thing on the sevrer...but I forget the advice given to solve it?

Any ideas?

thanx

Pics would help - it never gave me any trouble.

I am not sure why you need a pic...unless you think I'm in the wrong room (though I read a walkthru...I AM in the correct room)...
but I took 2 pics.

The 1st I cannot make smaller enough (even as a jpeg) to meet the TNM forum rquirement of 256 k max size...it was showing the entrance to the (correct) room
But I CAN post here the 2nd pic,as I hold up the 'gator' to the server...and it does NOT attach-place, as its upposed to (according to the walkthru)

so here's the pic

I am glad it all worked well for you...any advice on how I can make it work AT ALL for me?

thank you

First of all, imgur.

Second of all, try crouching and attaching it to the black part (IIRC). The exposed part doesn't work.

First...thank you for trying to help me...lets keep at it! :-)
Second I don't know what 'IIRC" means...I look all over the room for 'IIRC' and don't see it?
Third, I don't know what you mean by 'imgur'

Now I tried to take some more pics of different 'sides' to this server..but cannot meet the website forum requirement of < 256 k,so I can't.
But let me be as descriptive as I can be:-

1. You see the pic of me entering the room...lets call that the 'front' of the server...is that the right or the wrong side?
2. at the far right corner is a way to enter the room from a vent...lets call that the close side...that side of the server IS black...but it doesn't say IIRC..can't get that side to work
3. the exact oppiste side is also black..also doesn't say iirc...can't get that to work

which brings me to:-

1.what is the correct 'side' to place it
2. is placing it meaning merely holding the gator in my hand,walking up to the 'iircc-black siode'...and its (supposed to) just 'automatically' place..?
3...or am I supposed to press the use/action key (right mouse) to place it?

I am still stuck on what really should be a simple,non-issue

thank you

IIRC is shorthand for "if I recall correctly".

http://www.imgur.com/

It should be used like a LAM. You should be able to use it on the front side of it (the one directly facing the door). If using it when standing doesn't work, try crouching.

After it's been placed on the server, you should use a multitool on it.

this SHOULD BE easy...a 'no-brainer'...it is not

Also...and this is very early in the game...this is game-braking for me; if I cna't solve it TNM will have to end here for me, right?

I am in the right place; I have tried (literally) >100 times to 'place it.'
I've stood & stand & crouched back-n-forth a zillion times

I've gone back to old saves

this gastor will not 'PLACE' for me

Now when you say to 'use it like a lam', I THROW lams...I do not attach them to objects

If I stand or crouch and do nothing else in fromt of the server,then nothing happens
If I press my right mouse to 'interact' with the server then the gator is put away (like every other item I am holding if I press my right mouse)
..and no, my right mouse is NOT bound to 'put away', I use the default keyboard bindings

If you cannot figure out what I am doing worng...I sure can't...my best thought is 'Is there a console code command' that 'completes' this quest

Alternatively, should I be posting this inquiry in the (not spoiler free) help forum?

best

eric

You need to "fire" it in order to place it.

Thats It ! :-)

WHEEEEEWWWWW!

"Fire it"...either I am the dumbest guy on the planet, or that is REALLY unclear in the game

So easy...yet so hard

I thank you

take care
