First off, my game arrived with some small scratches near the edge of disk 2 mad . Since shipping costs are high here, and not really worth it with all this frustration, I don't feel like returning the game for an exchange. Anyways...

I'm playing under XP. I had no problems whatsoever until I came to the monkey (Fig. 35) in Part 2 where I got my first "can hear, but can't see" cut-scene. I selected the "Always On Top" preference for the DivX Player, and from then on, I could see the cut-scenes. A big thanks to "dadguy" Boomer thumbsup

Problem: I am now in the console room at the beginning of Part 5. My cursor changes into pan-mode and swings way too fast around the room! That's not the worst... I am unable to open the doors in this room. I just keep getting that pan-mode cursor. I can get out of it ok, and also used the x-key zoom out, but where ever I click, nothing happens. Also, I cannot save the game at this point! I keep clicking "ok" but nothing happens. Changing the graphic acceleration didn't help. Thank goodness I saved just before entering the portal.

I don't know if this a glitch, or because of the scratches on my disk.

Help! I was now wondering if someone could send me a saved game at the beginning of Part 5. Someone who's also used the walkthrough if possible, to make sure I have all the items.

thanks
Anne

You got this in XP?
I thought it was a Win 98 problem.

It may be related you your using the DivX Player instead of Windows Media Player 9. You really only need the DivX codec, but you do need Windows Media Player 9 and it has to be configured to play your avi files.
In any case, Mr. Lipid has saved games.

Actually, it's a problem when there is too much video of any sort in a single node. Some video cards appear to handle it better than others. This is the same problem that crops up in the Administration Office.

I've recently expanded my fine line of saved games to enable discriminating players to fully savor the joy and wonder that it the last act of Forever Worlds. A discreet e-mail is all it takes to partake of this lush and succulent bounty. wink

Hi Mr. Lipid - looks like you are the person to talk to re problems re video in Forever Worlds game. I too, am having problems at start of Part 5 - just like person at beginning of this thread described. Have downloaded DivX and Media Player 9 as suggested and installed them. Now how do I configure them to make the game work properly? Many thanks for any help you can give me here. wave

If you have Win XP, you've probably done all you need to.
Which video card do you have? It seems there are problems with some video cards, even on XP.

I have ATI for my video card. Thanks for your quick reply to my post. Do you know if the ATI card is a problem here?

I can't get any of my saved games to open up. I'm up to where I've just been carried off by the bird to the cliff. Went to open that save after shutting down and couldn't. Any suggestions, Mr L. Jenny, anyone? Thanks in advance.

What happens if you start a new game, then try to load one of the saves?

Will give it a try Jenny, however once the game starts doen't it always begin with the boat? I don't recall an actual new game option. Thanks for the quick reply.

Yeah. It seems to start a new game every time.
But try playing a little, making a save, and then trying to load it. If it works, try loading one of the old ones.

Look in the GameData folder. What is the size of the saved games that won't load? A proper saved game should be 40-41KB.
