WANTED WILD WESTERN ADVENTURE (LEMON) - 04/24/07 11:06 PM

To all boomers:
I would not recommend this game to anyone. It has more glitches and bugs than my dogs have fleas.
Recently purchased. Will not launch, part black screen on launch,lose your cursor and then freezes and crashes your pc.
I have installed and uninstalled this game 5 times to no avail. RAL and KillerProphets having same probs.
Have contacted tech support, No response. Have called toronto Canda tech support by phone as number is in manual. Put on hold for more than 20 mins. Spoke to no one at my expense. No 800#.
If you are lucky to launch and play a bit, you will get PICTURE EXE. ERROR, then game crashes. I d/l the patch, still same probs. I removed it from trading post as I don't want anyone to go throught the frustration i have gone through with this game. WILL NOT RECOMMEND> I have more than adequate system requirements . Just for fun I loaded it into my laptop which is older and a whole lot less juice than my desktop pc. It played I saved some games, then sold my laoptop. I emailed saved games to myself to play on my desktop pc. It will not launch. I re-configured my pc to all of the configs, it shows in the manual on before you launch game. Still I got the black screen and crashed my pc on all 5 occasions. BEWARE OF THIS GAME> I DO NOT recommend it to anyone.Will follow up when I can get in touch with ADVENTRE GAMES about this matter.I have no chice but to soak up what I paid for this game, but will certainly chalk it up to a lesson learned.

Hi Darlene:
Darn it started great on my laptop, looked like a nice relief from my other games, but MAN I am sooooooooooo depressed. I wanted it so bad, cause I live on a farm and it would be a nice change for me. Funny too.
Not the only one having this prob. Am still going to contact Adventure Co. Am real ticked off. LOL

Hi Ellimay --

Like Darleen, I had no problems at all with this game. I see from your thread in Glitches that you are thinking of upgrading your system -- I hope you do get to play it then. It has an engaging Old West atmosphere.

I'm with Johnboy- unfortunately it did play fine for me- but I stopped about 3 hours into it- death to carrots!

Apart from the odd crash to desk top the game ran fine for me, so sorry Ellimay that you have experienced so many problems.

Getting buckets of water & growing carrots did become a little tedious so I just 'meditated' while I was doing it & went into automatic 'collecting buckets of water & picking carrots mode'! rotfl (I ended up with so many carrots but my horse was happy!) smile

I also had tons of problems with this game, but finally got it to work. It's a fun game if you can get it to work.
Any word on the sequel?

The sequel will be published by a French publisher, Micro Application. You can read more about it here. I'm not sure if there will be an English language version.

I have seen very often a single hardware component creating all sorts of problems with system and software stability. Also a small patch or lack of it can also cause problems. I had a "hotfix" from Microsoft installed which apparently crashed all my games as soon as i launched them. Hotfix they say hotbreak i say!

MaG added a link to my cheats to bypass carrot collecting in the beginning of the game (also a bypass for the shooting gallery). Have fun.

Ellimay:
Continuing on Butcher's point above: I don't think your experience with 'Wanted' should be taken as an example of a game that is inherently bad or bugridden. It did after all run on your laptop. People have so many different hardware/software configurations on a given computer these days that no game can be guaranteed to run perfectly on everyone of them. The ultimate measure of whether the game has been reasonably debugged is the fact that it runs on most systems.

Regardless of her incompatibility the company should give good, free tech support. I'm sure a good tech person could get her going and if you pay good money for a game, tech support should be available.

I just hate it when you spend $30 bucks or more on a game and there is no one there if the thing doesn'w work.

I also Feel that just because a Game won't run on your computer...That you should not Give the game a Bad review...It does run on most peoples computers.....BUT !!! There also should be some kind of Tech Support from the Publishers.. wave
