Chips bug : level 49 :
Chip Challenge: Bear Trap Won't Release Paramecia in Level 49
Article ID: Q110887
Revision Date: 14-DEC-1995
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows Entertainment Pack, Volume 4
When Chip runs over a brown button near the middle right side of the maze in level 49, a bear trap should release a paramecia. However, the paramecia is not released, thereby allowing Chip to collect the computer chips without having to dodge the pink balls.
In level 49 there are two separate areas where Chip must venture. In the first area, Chip must collect 18 red keys to unlock 18 red doors. In the second area, Chip must collect the 23 available computer chips before exiting through the exit square.
While Chip is collecting the keys in the first area, a paramecia is moving through a labyrinth. Once the paramecia nears the end of the first part of this labyrinth, it runs over two green buttons. These green buttons open two sets of walls harboring pink balls, which Chip must dodge to obtain all of the keys. After the paramecia runs over the two green buttons, it is stopped by a bear trap.
Once Chip gets the keys and opens all of the doors, he will venture into the second area. In the beginning of the second area, Chip runs over a brown button that releases the paramecia into the second part of the labyrinth. While Chip collects the computer chips in the second area, the paramecia will pass over a second set of green buttons, thus releasing a second set of pink balls, which Chip will again have to dodge to obtain all of the computer chips.
However, when Chip runs over the brown button, the paramecia is not released from the bear trap as expected. As a result, Chip will be able to collect all of the computer chips without having to dodge the pink balls.

In the upper section, get the red keys in a circle. Go left and grab the keys at the bottom (also get the 2 keys which are in the middle), then go up and right, taking the rest of the keys with you. In the lower section, grab all the chips, and when you're approaching the exit, step on the leftward force floor to gain an extra boost on your way home.
