SUMMARY

In level 20 of Chip's Challenge, Chip must collect 15 computer chips and make his way through bugs, tanks, and pink balls to get to the Exit Square.

However, even if Chip doesn't pick up one computer chip, he may still exit this level. This is because there is no Cosmic Chip Socket to place the computer chips into.





MORE INFORMATION

In this level, titled Tossed Salad, Chip has 400 seconds to pick up 15 computer chips and complete the maze.

In levels that have computer chips to collect, Chip is required to pick up all the computer chips to pass through the Cosmic Chip Socket before he can go through the Exit Square.

Unfortunately, in this level, there is no Cosmic Chip Socket, so Chip may exit the maze without picking up a single chip.

 

 

 

Chip's Challenge: Two Bear Traps Won't Release in Level 70

The information in this article applies to:

- Microsoft Entertainment Pack for Windows, Volume 4 - Microsoft Best of Entertainment Pack for Windows, version 1.0





SUMMARY

In level 70 of Chip's Challenge, Chip must pass over several brown buttons that release different monsters from bear traps. The monsters chase Chip as he makes his way through the maze.

However, two of the brown buttons, one on the lower-left part of the maze and one on the lower-right part of the maze, do not activate the bear traps associated with them. As a result, Chip can pass around two of the monsters without being hindered.





MORE INFORMATION

In this level, titled Nightmare, Chip has 199 seconds to complete the maze. Chip does not have to pick up any computer chips, but he does have to be quick to avoid capture by any monsters. Several brown buttons along the route of the maze release a monster from a bear trap. Chip must avoid these monsters to finish.

In separate areas of the maze, two of the bear traps, one holding a paramecia and the other holding a tooth monster do not get activated when Chip passes over the associated brown buttons. As a result, Chip has easy passage through these parts of the maze.

Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

 

GP Fault in Chip's Challenge When Playing at Level 104

Last reviewed: December 14, 1995
Article ID: Q113197

The information in this article applies to:

•Microsoft Windows Entertainment Pack volume 4







SUMMARY

In level 104 of Chips Challenge, "The Jailer", Chip is surrounded by four colored keys. Once Chip is moved, pink balls start rolling across the screen. If Chip is moved onto a square that displays a key, and a pink ball moves onto the same square at the same time, an application error will occur followed by a general protection (GP) fault. Once the error message occurs, the Chip's Challenge game closes.





WORKAROUND

Avoid moving Chip onto a square that displays a key if, at the same time, a pink ball moves onto that square.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows Entertainment Pack volume 4. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available. \
