The Big Fish installer really doesn't have to do much. Download and copy files to the game folder, decompressing if necessary, and activate if it's not already activated. The Big Fish installer (and uninstaller) are not as complicated as the game and should not be messing up, even if the game itself is bugged. I wouldn't be so concerned if it were only the game that messed up and not the installer. I think it needs to be checked out.

Thanks, Jenny100.

I will have a word with my Son in Law at some time but he's super busy right now.

[Fortunately, the vast majority of my games from Big Fish are playing perfectly smile ]

So, are you replaying Mad, or did you decide not to for right now?

Did you finish Mercy of the Gallows, oldbroad? Have you started anything new?

Now I am playing Amaranthine Voyage: The Burning Sky CE. I'm about halfway through the main game.

I did finish Mercy of the Gallows Marian, with the help of the guide in the bonus chapter. I was just getting tired of not knowing what to do by that time. I have not yet started a new casual game though, but will soon.

I have not played any of the Amaranthine Voyage games yet but I do have all 8 of them downloaded already on my Windows 7 computer wink. I hope your roll of game enjoyment is continuing!

The gaming is definitely continuing. This is only the second Amaranthine Voyage game I have played. It sounds like you are all set. lol

With the hot weather this month, I have an even better excuse to stay indoors and game, which suits me just fine. smile

Not replaying for the moment, oldbroad. Just carrying on with the Adventure "Geospots".
But I will no doubt be into another Casual very soon evil

EDIT :

A footnote ....
I've been in touch with my Son in Law and he thinks it's the external drive.
(It IS pretty old and well used)
He's getting me a new one.

I never thought this would happen, but a rainy day during my vacation got me hooked on playing a mobile game with my wife called Draw Something. It's really funny!

Mad: Can't you simply try to install Grim Tales on your internal drive? Unless it's filled to the brim you will surely have enough space for that game.

I did not expect to see you in this discussion, Mikael! This is a pleasant surprise, and thank you for letting us know about Draw Something. smile

Oh good. That's an easy fix.
Much easier than if it were your Windows drive that was where the game was installed.

Just started "Haunted Manor: Remembrance CE". This is a very well done game. EIPIX at their best. Excellent graphics, artwork, voices. Music suits the mood. Creepy in a weird way, but engaging storyline. Even HO scenes are particularly interesting. Haven't yet run into any puzzles per se, but just got started. If this sounds interesting, give the demo a try.

I have the Haunted Manor: Remembrance CE but haven't played it yet. It sounds very good, Sparkle. I will move it up on my to-play list.

I just finished the Endless Fables: Frozen Path CE. It was a very nice game, and the ice and snow setting was particularly welcome being as it's so hot right now. I spent several pleasant hours with it.

I have two game credits so will be picking up a couple of games during the BOGO sale today. Haven't decided what yet, but plenty to choose from!

I am also playing Haunted Manor, but its subtitle is "The Last Reunion." Creepy and very creative. Some puzzle types I haven't seen before.


Locked down and playing way too many games!

I've re-downloaded some of my Casuals now that my new external drive is set up. So I've installed one of them .... "Whispered Secrets : Forgotten Sins" .... which appears to be working fine - and is looking good, so far thumbsup

Mad, I have played Whispered Secrets: Forgotten Sins a couple of times and enjoyed it both times. smile

Tally Ho, I have found some very clever puzzles in a lot of Eipix's offerings. It can't be all that easy to come up with new and different puzzles, and I give them a lot of credit for having done so.

Room 1-3 waiting for Room 4:Old Sins to come to the PC (do these games qualify for casual or puzzle?) think

I am really not sure, Upsydaisy - perhaps they are casual puzzle games? Plenty of casual games have tricky puzzles - that is for sure!

Nice to see you here. smile

I have four Haunted Manor games :

Halloween's Uninvited Guest
Queen of Death
Remembrance
The Last Reunion

But the only one I think I've actually played is "Queen of Death" eons ago !! grin

I don't remember anything about Queen of Death.

But then I often don't remember much about any game only days after I've played it !! redface

I remember Queen of Death quite well, but that's because I played it for the first time in the last few months.
