Episode 1 bug (barrels)
I´ve a bug at the soup place, the animation when the chef hits the pipe never shows, so when I make him cook I cant hit the pipe to make the lift go down, any advice or suggestion?

I run win8.1, if that helps.

Seems like Sam & Max. If the tasks not are accomplish in the exact intended order, and/or you choose/do some wrong things, you will be stucked, and have to start all over. Really sad, because it would otherwise be a good game (both Sam & Max and BTTF).

Yes, I have exactly the same bug. That can't be. This is a damn blocker issue for any type of game - dead end bugs should never stay in a video game! -.- Ok, I'm watching a youtube video about the rest of episode 1 - I don't want to start this crap all over again, watching all the non-skippable animations and stuff. I hate this!!!!

Okay - forget about the bug message. While I was typing this message here for you, I had the game open in the background - with no active pause, staying in the soup kitchen.
Now, after I switched back to the game, made a little move - immediately the sequence popped up with the long missed "cue ball hits the pipe with his gun and made the elevator move" animation.
And after that, I could proceed normally.

So I guess it's just a never ingame told "please stand still and wait goddammit"-issue, no one understands by default, but only by accident. Crappy game design...

This issue is still in the game. A very annoying bug in an otherwise good game. The conditions that trigger the cutscene, where cueball should knock on a pipe, just don't register, making progression impossible.

Still there.. Even if there are no bugs in the next episodes, I won,t encourage a game that has a game breaking bug like that. Lucky I had less than 2 hours, I've been stuck there for 40 minutes and nothing happening. Asking for a refund even if I love Telltale games !!!

I dont think its a bug, you just need to float around the counter for a while
russy 23 is right. I searched for a solving this thread and so a walk a little time in the corner till doc: "says hm he cook have loutless codeword" I knew this thread is old but one of the first in google.
