  • Thanks but there's no more detail. Question is simple. What can I do? Also it's not "how much". I know how much I should pay but I cannot pay.

  • @Leadri That, right there, is more detail. The reason there's a minimum character limit is to encourage providing more information. Now that you have more detail, why don't you edit your question to include that information?

  • @fbueckert It's not a detail. My question is changed by FAE and I'm telling it's not my question. It's irrelevant.

  • @Leadri I think the question edit to change "how do I?" to "how much do I?" was just an honest mistake as they tried to remove all that extra text in the original question. Is this new edit better?

Press up and down to change the amount of money you're offering him, then press your default 'use' key to pay him. The tunnel to Area 2 costs $100,000, the tunnel to Area 3 costs $200,000, and the tunnel to Area 4 costs $300,000

From the PC wiki.

  • I tried this but where can I see amount of money? Nothing changes when I press up and down.

  • There should be yellow text with DONATE: before the amount at the bottom of the screen. Can you add a screenshot with what you see?

  • It seems it was a bug in v1.1. There is a v1.2 community update that fixes many problems including this problem. Here is link: mossmouth.com/forums/index.php?topic=1257.0
