Orpheo's curse: cursor bug?
I'm stuck in an old dos game, the tale of orpheo's curse. i'm at the point where you're playing as alex in the upper parts of the theater. after traversing the catwalks after the rooftop, there comes a point where you find a sandbag and rope. if you try to get past it, the rope turns into a "snake" and you lose the game. all walk throughs i've found state that you must touch/push the sandbag. ... but that simply isn't an option for me. when i reach that screen, it only lets me back away (or wait until the "snake" attacks.) later i realized that this is the same problem i was having much earlier in the game in the museum of oddities where you're supposed to touch the "eyes" on the back of the cobra's head. at first, it doesn't allow me to touch them (even after the crystal ball sequence) but if i hold down the button on the mouse at the right time, release... then click again, it changes into a hand i can grab with. i was able to get past the bug that way. but this technique isn't fixing the cursor for the sandbag. when i release and click, it just sends me backwards (or if i pressed the forward area, begins the rope/snake sequence). i suppose i should mention that i'm running this via dos box.
