Chrissie I am still having BFG problems. I sayBF because I have had no more help and I have paid 2 topnotch computer co. precious money and they have dumped them down to like a new computer. BFG is the thing that ruins it all. I just sent them email again and told them I may have to cancel my membership if they can't help me. I have hundreds of games, but if yiy can't play them what good are they? These laptops are my life from wakeup to bedtime. Cancer laughing at me I'm sure. TV doesn't do it.

Patsy, I don't know how old your computer is, but sometimes it is indeed necessary to bite the bullet and get a new one. It is very difficult top diagnose all issues via the internet especially since you have even paid others to do it in person and that hasn't worked.

Have you considered backing up your files and scrapping the computer and reinstalling everything? I have had to do that more than once when things just stop behaving. If that doesn't work you may want to consider a new computer.

You have to be especially careful to get good graphics if you buy a laptop. With a desktop, you can usually add a new video card if necessary. But with a laptop you have to get good graphics to start with. A new laptop can have worse graphics than an older one. Laptops are usually built for energy conservation and portability rather than high end, or even mediocre gaming graphics.

Doesn't matter. Bad graphics on a new computer is much worse than decent graphics on an old computer.

I had to replace the graphics card on my HP computer shortly after I bought it. The "factory" card was just not compatible with many of the newer games.

Agreed Sparkle and Jenny. I have two newer computers and one cannot handle games (I use it to write and for internet) and the other is specifically a gaming computer.

Which is why it's important to make sure what you initially buy will handle all your needs/wants.

Hi PATSY, I've just seen your post & while I could agree with the good advice following I'm curious. You say you have hundreds of games - have you ever been able to play any of them on your current laptop?

If not then it obviously doesn't meet the requirements for playing games.

If you've been able to play games up until now & now can't play them then maybe something's failing in your system or it's infected - I'm sure that it's not BFG's fault. (It wasn't theirs in my case!) I'm no expert myself so it would be well worth posting on Glitches with your system specs where there are experts who maybe able to help. smile

I believe this is the same issue Patsy posted in Glitches about last May. I don't believe she ever posted back that it got resolved, but like you, I don't believe the problem lies with BFG, but rather with something on her computer.

Please don't discuss my probems anymore. I love BFG more than any program on here, No matter what you computer experts write, I'll stay with the professionals until I get it fixed. I willl not post anymore.

I know it's been awhile since I (or anyone else) has posted on this topic. The reason I am posting, is either shortly before the new year or right after, when I downloaded a demo from BF (or the full game), it worked like it used to. I no longer have to reboot, go to My Computer, find downloads, and go from there. I really hope other people are having no more problems either. I'm assuming BF did some research and found out what was wrong.

Glad it's working now. Have things gotten better for anyone else?

Thanks.
