A missing persons case
that develops into something worse

The first (and perhaps last) time you'll see
Carol Reed investigating in the dark of winter

In the course of her investigations
Carol learns about
the eccentric Malte Stierngranat
and sees some bizarre paintings
by Hieronymus Bosch*

Check out the Gameboomers review of
***Carol Reed 10: Bosch's Damnation***

Thanks, Jenny. Because of your great review, I purchased the full version, and I'm playing it now. Mag's walkthrough is a great help to me (as usual). HAPPY GAMING!

I am deleting this post. Nortons didn't recognize the site I was give to download the game and since the site would NOT allow me to cut and paste the link directly to Explorer it refused to download the game. I had to turn off Nortons to get the game to perform. thank you anyway.

I deleted the last post because I got the game running correctly, YESTERDAY. I refuse to write Mikael AGAIN, but now it's stopped performing normally. First, it's off to the right side of the screen making about 1/3 off the screen, and the WORST PART is all the progress yesterday up to investigating the guy's rented room is GONE. I will have to wait until the disk comes to restart with that. I cannot believe this. Now, I'm REALLY afraid for the new Tex game!

Bubbajake,
I don't use Norton. It may be blocking parts of the game. You say you got the game running correctly at one point. Was that when you turned off Norton's real time scanning (and blocking)? Have you tried adding the game exe to Norton's "allowed" list? How to do that might depend on your version of Norton, but it I found instructions for the Norton 360 version ***here*** and it may be similar for other versions.

BubbaJake,

I'm sorry for your problems. Can it be that you (inadvertently) checked "Run in window" or "Use desktop resolution" in the Game Settings window? Depending on your graphics card, the game can behave like you describe it in some cases.

As for your saved games, have you tried to choose "continue" instead of "load" to get to the autosaved game? The game autosaves when exited, but that save can not be chosen from the load screen.

As for Norton, it can be tricky. My game has gone through Norton's white listing process, so no warnings are supposed to show up. Still, in some rare cases, they do. This seems to happen with all games, more or less, and I don't think anyone's ever really understood why.

Lastly, BubbaJake: Don't hesitate to email me if you have any problems.

Oh, and THANKS FOR THE REVIEW, Jenny.

I use Norton 360 and it told me that the game files were "suspect" when I knew full well they were not.

But as they also always offer me the option to override their decision and "install anyway" .... I DID .... and my computer hasn't blown up yet !! lol lol

Jennie thank you for the info. I never thought of Norton, but got a little pp up from them and I checked 'Trust them' and that allowed the game to download and install. I'm positive all my problems are Norton related I just never think about it until I'm up the creek, so to speak. Mikael, I had turned the PC on the next day and found it that way. I've had some Big Fish games doing that also, but was able to get them corrected. I'll try what I did on Carol. I think it'll work. I have lost all my game progress, so I'm out of luck with that. Yeah Mad, I get things like that too, but I knew the Carol Reed games have been trustworthy. That little pop up came and went so fast on the bottom right hand of my monitor that I missed it earlier. thank you everyone for your help.

Wow! I just discovered another Carol Reed Mystery is available! I have ordered the disk and can't wait to play! I had some serious computer problems(a virus) early in the year and I have been just getting back into my regular internet routine! I am so far behind but I'm starting to catch up with things. It's great to be back on Gameboomers! Whoever plants these computer viruses out to be hung by their thumbs! Hanging is too good for them! Oh well, I am so looking forward to playing Carol Reed and the new Nancy Drew(I pre-ordered it today). yay wave
