Having problems dialling using telephone in Theresa's office. I'm trying to use it to dial Sonia Diamond.

I'm old enough to remember these old phones but my mouse doesn't seem to want to position itself correctly for each number.

Is it supposed to be this difficult?

PS Using a very recent PC plus peripherals. Have slowed mouse speed (in the game)but that hasn't helped.

Your video processor may not be up to speed - are you playing on a laptop by any chance? The minimum system requirements are:

* OS: Windows XP - Vista - 7 - 8
* CPU: Pentium 4 at 2 GHz
* RAM: 2 GB
* HDD: 2 GB free disk space
* Graphics: 256 MB card
* Sound Card: DirectX 9 Compatible
* DirectX: Version 9.0c

If you're running an IGP with less than 256 MB, that may be the issue.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I'm playing on a relatively high powered PC and have a GeForce GT610 (2048MB) video card so that can't be the reason.

I don't own the game, so I can't speak to it's graphics requirements. However, the GT610 is a basic entry level card, so it still may be related to your lagging issue.

Here's a review of the card -

Plus, is it an IGP and sharing memory?

There's a YouTube video walkthrough that starts here

I have no idea how far into the game the phone is, but maybe you can figure out how it's supposed to work from the video.
