You have to force Vigo back into the painting like in the film. Try using the slime guns on him. Don't forget the statue of liberty!

If that doesn't work upload a savestate and I'll take a look for you.

Ok, I'll give the savestate a try. By the way I just made the stuff up. Sorry. LOL! I've never played the game before, however I'm usually good at working things out so I'll try and figure it out for ya. I just downloaded the WHDLoad version and been playing the first level. How bloody annoying!

Especially those damn saw creatures that keep sawing away at your cable. The little gits! I managed to make it down to the bottom of the shaft but then what? All I could was keep swinging and shooting stuff. Right I'm off to have a go with your save state.

I think it's bugged....

1. I see no winning screenshot in HOL, which probably means the screenshot taker couldn't finish it either.
2. A guy that made this help text I have also got stuck:
Quote:
Well, now you're very close to the solution of the game. I still heven't
found the last step to complete the game. The only further information
I can give you is that it's possible to move Ray around by shooting him
with an energy-phaser.
I saw the movie about 2 months ago so I cannot remember how the evil has
been killed in the film. I try to get a copy of the movie again to get
the last hint that I need to complete the game. But I hope nevertheless
that this text has helped you to go through the game.
I have tried and can't move Ray.
3. I myself can't figure it out.

So, 3 reasons it's bugged .

You have to steer Ray (with the Joystick, of course) down to the
river to collect some slime. On the way down you have to pick up
the 3 little parts which form the Scoop to collect the shit.
The parts are to be found at 7 metres on the left side, at 27
metres on the right side and at 117 metres again on the right.
after collecting the Scoop go down to the river. Now the cup will
fill itself with red slime and you'll enter the second level.
On the way down you can also collect extra weapons and energy.
It's useful to pick up one or two bottles to restore your energy.
With the space bar you can choose the different weapons but you
really don't need them to solve this easy level.

Nighty ... hope to see some good news tomorrow .

Yeah its a bit weird. Two of them can fire their proton beams and one of them fires slime in his slime gun. If I remember from the film the slime decreases negative energy as its been positively charged (somehow).

You seem to be able to pick up the baby and carry it to the baby carrier but soon Vigo drags him back towards the painting. It looks like you have to do something to Ray or the painting during this period where the baby isn't in the cot. Its really weird. I don't think its bugged. There is probably something very very specific that you have to do to complete the game.

The fact that two can fire proton beams and one fires slime is maybe a clue. I got two of the ghostbusters to shoot at ray and used the third to pick up and move the baby. It seemed to be working for a while.

What are the red meter bars? Are they energy or something? They seemed to rise when I started shooting ray.

Well, you havn't done anything I havn't tried already . It takes like 5 secs to make to of them shoot at Ray with their energy beams..... then the other with the slime can move around doing stuff.... but tried it all... I have tried putting the baby in various places while they shoot at him... I have tried to place the baby back at the place infront of the painting....I have tried shooting at Ray and the painting with the slime dude while the other shoot with the beams....... etc etc... I have tried it all.

Vigo has 3 bars... the far left one is Janosz's life bar, the far right one is the paintings life bar, and the second one from left is Vigo's, and it's THIS one I can't get down (well, when Ray is taken over by vigo, the 2nd bar becomes Ray's)........ when shooting at him with the two beam guys, 4 pixels of Vigo's health is removed... but nothing more happens...

You can change weapons between the characters with Enter..... but tried that too, what good would that do anyway?... well, Ray being dead, you could take his slime canister and put it on one with beams.. so you would have 2 slime and 1 beam guy... but still..... can't make any difference...

Vigo's bars 12 3..... 1=Janosz, 2=Vigo, 3=Painting... all but 2 can be drained to zero....

What is super weird is that the 2nd time I tried the level... after shooting Janosz till he dies, Vigo came out of the painting and Ray disappeared......... 3rd time... I did exactly the same thing and this time Ray was taken over and just stands infront of the painting... wtf... must be bugged... maybe I should use cheat to get to the last level with another version.... hmm... maybe try that later.

So.... I have tried it all.... so I asked for help here.......... hope someone can't figure something out...... well... another game being put on the shelf then .. like Battle Command.

Its probably best to try out the WHDLoad versions. I've put both the PAL and NTSC versions in the zone for you.

Thats a mistake. If it really is a bug in the cracked versions there is a very good chance the WHDLoad versons have fixed the problem as they use the data from the original version.

Oh wow, i had forgotten all about this!!!!!... I actually had the Original to Ghostbusters 2 back in the day, and i too was stuck on level 3 as well. I spent a good 2 or 3 months going back to this game constantly and i think i tried EVERYTHING !!!... I dont think it has anything to do with the version of the game you have, since as i said, i owned the Original, and if we were back then and are now ALL having the same problem, then i would say its probably a programming flaw ( bug ) or as someone else already said, maybe its something specific.

I might try it again

See, like blade002 said .... now it's blade002, me, Steve, the hol screenshot taker, and the guy that typed the hint text file I read from....... none of us has completed level 3... and I don't know of anyone who has...

Bugged for sure then maybe?...

It's so weird cuz it's all random everytime I try it.... sometimes I Janosz doesn't even want to die.... even though I done exactly the same thing several times before.....

ON THE SHELF WITH THIS ONE ASWELL!! ... damn.

I haven't tried this one yet but I'll give it a go.

Steve is right - dodgy cracks and trainers are more common than I'd previously imagined. It usually happens in later levels due to lack of testing on the part of the crackers/trainers.
