You miiiiight not be softlocked but odds are that you are. Hit me up on Discord sometime (CirclMastr#0848) if you want to do the co-commentator route.

SPOILER: The LP is definitely in an unwinnable state. You need a lot of quarters. See the next spoiler for where to get quarters

Play the slot machine in the casino. You will eventually win at least once before running out of quarters

New episode, good cop bad cop feat CirclMastr

Thanks to CirclMastr for hopping on to do co-commentary and helping break the soft lock.

Also thanks SB Hermit for the spoiler tip.

No prob!

Good luck, you're on the right track.

There's a few notable differences between this version and the original NES, I think. Besides the fact that you can use a mouse, the other is an incredibly severe time limit. Lots of needed quality-of-life improvements all around. I really enjoy seeing this playthrough to spot the differences.

I think the time limit only ran on until you reversed your amnesia in the original game.

I still think that Ace really did owe siegel and the iou is real. Which makes it easier to frame Ace as the fall guy.

the tissues reference is for the old movie "To Have and Have Not". You can search for "the whistle scene".

I asked CirclMastr about this since hes the one with the memory and neither of us could recall reading anything that straight up says wether the debt/IOU was real or fake but CirclMastr did say he thought Ace and Joey knew each other before since Joey had a poster of Ace in his boxing days. He also said he could remember if it stated it specifically but he thought Joey might of been Aces boxing manager back in the day.

IOU aside... at any rate, it's pretty clear that Ace was a close associate of Joey. Maybe even amicable. Otherwise, Joey wouldn't be keeping Ace's photo in his hallway.

Which makes Vickers look incredibly heartless. Ace had done nothing but maybe be a hired gun for Joey, but there is no clear bad blood between her and Ace. Ace was just a convenient fall guy.

Congrats! This game was wicked hard on the original mac and it's awesome to see it played. Kinda shows its age due to the lack of niceties that you'd find in more modern games such as an updating journal and a list of objectives, etc. But it's still fun, the way it is now.
