Solved: 6 Years, 11 Months ago Bug/Glitch in Storage.

When i try to use the chemistry pot on the vat it in the storage area it just says "Cannot use this item this way!". I have watched several walkthroughs on youtube and i have read a guide on how you are supposed to do. This doesn't seem to work. I double click the Chemistry pot and click on the Primary vat and it says:
"Cannot use this item this way!"
I have assembled the drill and made a hole in both vats and tried to use the Chemistry pot on them about 20 times each from all kinds off angles and directions. Can any adminstrator please help me? atleast explain all the steps in storage very precise incase i have missed something please.

I'm guessing you updated to 1.0.1 and continued a 1.0 game in which case bugs like this can occur, either replay from an earlier save using the Load Game function in main menu or see this thread:

Try to leave this area and return back.
See if it works now.

Darn automatic upgrades! User 'jens' works for Frictional Games, and he linked to some save games you could use to get to as close to just before this happened as possible. Wink

"Getting stuck" is not uncommon. There are threads about getting stuck because they got past the organic matter without using acid, because they got trapped in a room, etc. Most "getting stucks" are unique in some way. I got stuck exactly once. Hopefully this is your one bad knock and the rest of your game will go smoothly.

Hey, I am having the exact same problem as John except that I can't use the save games you guys have provided, I can download the file but it then sits in the folder and doesn't show up any save games I can load up in-game.
Please help!

Do I have to extract the savefiles from the file you provide or do I simply download it straight to the location you suggest?
