This is the quest where you follow the kids to the two Irish guys having a fist fight out in the Homestead.

What. The. Hell.

I've spent the last 10 minutes trying to get these 2 green bars to the edge of the screen, only for one of the bars to go yellow and zoom back to the middle.

What's the trick to doing this?

This can be tricky simply because the two bars on each side move back and forth slightly, and decrease in size as you push them closer to the edge.

The best time to move is when the bar is moving away from your cursor on that side. As it moves away (towards the edge), push towards it slightly and it will move that way with you. Be careful not to move too far or it will slide back towards you too much and go past your cursor (and go back to the middle), which means you have to try it again.

If you're having trouble, try doing just one at a time. Once you get one side all the way to the edge, you can just leave it alone. As long as you don't move the cursor on that side, it won't go back to the middle. Then you can focus on the other side.

Once you get both of the green bars past the lines at the edges, you will successfully break up the fight. Just be patient and go slow. Trying to speed through this will surely cause you to fail.

Thanks - one at a time is much easier. Trying to concentrate on both bars together was causing me the headache –  cloakedninjas Feb 22 '13 at 23:24

What I did successfully in 5 mins was to follow the above advice as well as do one side at a time with the L or R letter staying in the color bar as you move it to the side "safe zone" I had to a few times chase after the color bar as it slid past me or i didn't keep the L or R letter in the color bar but the color bar did respond and change color back to Green as soon as I caught up with it to move back into the safe zone where it finally parked and stayed put.
