I do like the new Big Fish game manager update. Including my purchase history saves lots of time, I no longer have to go to the website and find it there. Also doesn't ask permission to install. Great ideas BF... thumbsup

What I have noticed about the new GM that I like is the fact that if you have purchased two games during a BOGO sale, for instance, whereas before in your Purchase History it told you to install games from this order and both games began to download, with this GM each game can now be downloaded separately when you look at your Purchase History in the GM. It's a little thing, but it's a feature I really appreciate. wave

I was hoping that the problem I have been having with BFG downloads would have been resolved with the new GM

My problem is this. When I purchase a game from BFG website I receive a narrow bar at the top of the page warning me of the download and asking if I wish to continue. Of course I do continue but once I click to do this another BFG page comes up merely stating "continue shopping". I then have to click on this "continue shopping" to take me back to the home page in order to click on my account, then click on purchase history then click on the game download of the game I have just ordered! It is only then that I can download the game. It is as if this "continue shopping" page is interrupting my access to download the game!

Never mind though - BFG is a truly excellent site in every other way.

EDIT:Sorry, can't edit the above so am making another post.

Perhaps, when I have clicked through the purchase process (then the other page clicks in) I can bring up the game manager and my new game should be on there ready to be downloaded?

bermag, I combined the posts. The edit button is on the button of your post.

I do not have the new app installed so hopefully someone who does will be along shortly to answer you.

Bernie,

Your problem is probably with your internet explorer. You should got to tools, internet options, security and click on trusted sites, then add bigfishgames.com

I previously posted that I like the new app. The one thing that is missing is the ability to click through to "get tips on the forum" when you log out of any particular game. Therefore, you have to go back to the game site to do this.

That is the only drawback of the app.

I used to be able to pick as many games as I wanted to install and they would show in the Queue section. When one finished d/l and just stated to install, the next game would start to d/l, etc. Now, I can only install one game.

Just go to the Purchase History on the GMapp and add the games you want to download and you will have your queue
