I was a "backer" and have just downloaded from GOG without any problems smile

However, I discovered that there wasn't a Part One and a Part Two as I had expected - just the whole "Broken Sword 5" game.

For me that was straight forward because I had waited until the whole game was available before I downloaded anything.

BUT I can understand the frustrations of those who downloaded Part One when IT was made available because, apart from at the forum related to the game, I couldn't find any information as to why only the whole game is now being offered as a download.

And at the forum there are a lot of people venting their displeasure about that !! rolleyes

EDIT :

I just went back to GOG and the advice at the forum appears to be to back up any saves from a previous play of Part One, then uninstall that Part One and download the full game that's now being offered.
Apparently quite a lot of technical changes have been made and that is why only the full game download is now available.
It does sound, though, as if saves made during the that original Part One will work with this new full game download.

[There are six "items" to download but with superfast Broadband the whole thing took less than hour for me.]

That's what I thought Mad that there was to be Part One and a Part Two. When I first start a new game it looked like the beginning of part 2 but when it ended it went to part 1. I played part 1 when it first came out and I don't want to play it again. At least you didn't play part 1 and you can play it. I hope GOG can come up with a fix. I'm playing the game on another pc so I won't have any saves from part 1.

That's a pity, kjos, that you don't have access to your previous saves because it appears they could probably turn out to be at least in part a saving grace for some folk ....

Maybe you could get a suitable save from the original Part One sent to you from someone here at Gameboomers ??

I think the lack of plainly visible information at the download site has been pretty bad thumbsdown

I did the same "dumb" thing by deleting Episode 1 (including the saves), but who KNEW? Now I'm playing Episode 1 all over again.
Looking at the bright side, Episode 1 is not that long. I'm even enjoying it "the second time around". LOL

I have 8 saves from part one. I did not index them but if you want the last one or all of them just ask. I'll e-mail a zip file if you like

Maggie,

Just sign in and go to your games list. You can download any game in your list as many times as you want at no charge.
I had to do the same thing tonight.

Also it will recognize your saves if you played the first half. When I uninstalled the game I told it not to remove saves.

The saves are in a different folder than the installed game.

You can find them here. My Documents\Broken Sword 5

At least they did not bury them.

The problem with this game is it only has 8 save slots.

What you can do is copy the folder and paste it somewhere else to back it up.

Then when you start the game you can click continue and it will take you to where you left off. The game will make an auto save for you. As you play and make new saves you must overwrite your old save in the game folder. When you over write all eight simply copy them and place them somewhere else to back them up. Number the folders 1-2-3 and so on. that way if you replay and want to use your old saves you won't be limited to the last eight you made while playing the first time.

This is the email I got back from GOG. Can anybody figure it out. I have no idea what they are talking about. I figured it out got all of the saves.include the last one. Thank you Richard

Please use the save files from your previous playthrough to continue the story in the full game.
If you don't have save files you can try using these:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/106372714/Broken%20Sword%205.zip
Place the Broken Sword 5 directory from the archive in your My Documents directory.

Regards
Genoan

Is there anyone who can confirm that when you install the new Mac version from gog, it still says everywhere it is episode 1?

The dmg file is definitely at least twice larger than before, but I cannot tell if this is the whole game or just episode 1 still?

Here is a message from the developer:

Quote:
Thank you so much for all your messages and support.
To be clear, Episode 2 is a free update for those have already bought Episode 1 on PC/Mac/Linux. Because of this you will need to continue the game from the last save - if you no longer have a save game then let us know at support@revolution.co.uk and we will send you one.
We are hearing reports that the GoG version is not running correctly from Episode 1 into Episode 2, and that the Mac version is yet to be made available. We are working with GoG to try and resolve these problems - we apologise for the delay. For Kickstarter backers who have yet to redeem the game at all, please log in to your backer panel via our new website here: http://accounts.revolution.co.uk/login
