Hey! Sorry for taking a couple days to get back to you.
First things first-- congrats! You found a new bug. Basically what's going on is this:
- The game tries to make it so that if you completely lose track of an item, you can get it back, either buy re-buying it or finding it at the lost and found.
- So when you re-buy your box, it effectively 'disappears' from wherever it was originally.
Believe it or not, normally this isn't a problem. If the box is on the ground, then the items that were originally in the box will just be deposited on the ground (i.e., only the box disappears, not the items in it, so you buy the same box back, empty, but not all the items.) However, nobody has yet run into this (at least, nobody has reported it) and I obviously didn't consider properly what would happen in case the shoe box was inside another container. =)
You can see the kind of mental gymnastics I have to do to keep track of all the possibile inventory combinations (e.g., what if an item you buy at a lost and found was *inside* another box, e.g., if you put a box on the ground that has your keys, and go to the lost and found and reclaim one of your keys, it will no longer be in the box when you go back, but everything else will be there. It's more complicated to keep track of than it seems like it should be, there's lots of special cases.)
Anyhow! More importantly I've attached a fixed save file and you are correct that you'll be able to get all your keys back from the lost and found (except the extra garbadge mine key, which I've put in your save file along with the watch.) Hopefully nothing else was lost when the box evaporated on you, if so let me know and I'll put it into your save file, too! Actually the watch *should* be at the lost and found, if it's not there it means I somehow accidentally removed it. It's meant to be there.
Anyhow this save file is identical to the one you posted, except the red GPS watch and the extra garbadge mine key are on the ground at Wyburns. Just copy it overtop your old savegame2.dat file and you'll be good to go (or make backup copies first if you need to.)
Thanks for buying the game, and thanks especially for taking the time to report this bug
Happy Texas-ing... =)
