I'm in touch with the developers, oldbroad, who have assured me my pledge will be honoured - but they can't give me a definite indication of when, yet whistle

Well, I guess that is good news, for now anyway.

Thanks JKEerie! I am currently on a streak of approximately 80 days without buying a game but am considering breaking the streak for this. Not sure yet though. smile

Does anybody know if they have solved the problem with Windows 7?

I did not know that there was a problem. What is the nature of the problem?

Marian, the problem is that the game does not work on Windows 7 frown
One my friend had to refund, because the game was said to support Windows 7, but it did not.
They have later changed the requirements to 'Windows 7 in development', but there was no news about that since the beginning of February.

As of Mid March, they are still working on getting the game to run on Windows 7, according to a thread in the game discussion on Steam.

I’ve been following the ROTS Windows7 issue and they have just announced that a critical part of the updated program will not run under Win7 and there is no possible workaround so the game will henceforth only be available on Win10. They gave it their best shot. I can only imagine how much work they put in trying to fix this. It’s not like they are a big company.

A couple of people got pretty upset, but the fact is that Microsoft doesn’t support Win7 anymore so game publishers can’t be expected to support it. On the other hand, in all fairness to those who got upset, the game was initially released as running under Win7 and Win10 and it can only be assumed that the company just assumed it would run on Win7 without doing much in the way of testing.

That's all good to know, SirDave. Thanks for the post. And I don't disagree.

I started this game today and have played about 3-1/2 hours already, not getting much of anywhere. While I know I enjoyed playing the old game, I am not yet thrilled with this one. I am finding it difficult to move around (at least if I'm trying to look around) and I did not particularly enjoy reading 150 pages of Bible to get a lock combination, and after all that, actually only found info to figure out 2 of the 3 numbers and had to guess at the third one. Fortunately there were not too many options that it could be and I started from the right end to find it more quickly. I like the Scarab cursor but may have to switch away from it to see if it helps with the navigating.

Well that doesn't sound pleasant, oldbroad, particularly all that reading to get a clue. eek I hope it gets better for you so you don't have to abandon it.

I had a very similar experience and reaction to the first chapter. I actually never went back to the game.

I've only abandoned a couple of games when a computer I was playing in broke down and I didn't see any good reason to start the games again in a different computer (yet). Though it's been years for a couple of those games I will still give them a retry if/when I get around to them.

KatieB, that is a shame since you plunked down a lot of money for the game. frown

Yes, I did pay a lot of $$. I was disappointed. I remember playing the original and finding it fun. I always think I will go back and give it another go, but I'm just not drawn into it right now.

I was very much looking forward to this game - having liked the original - but your comments, oldbroad and KatieB, are definitely not inspiring !!

I haven't even started it myself yet but I can't say having to read 150 pages to obtain an incomplete clue sounds like something I would enjoy shocked

I'm sorry Mad! I sure don't want to turn you off from the game. Obviously I didn't read every word of that 150 pages. I started out reading it and then looked at how many pages there is and started skimming, but that was still way too many pages. I'm sure the third clue was there but I missed it. I didn't play it last night but after I play some more, I'll post again. smile

There is a specific clue pertaining to where to look. No need to read through 150 pages.

Well the Book of Numbers is 150 or so pages. If you mean there was a different clue as to where to look within there, then I missed it. I did have trouble understanding the tapes and had to replay them a few times but one of them would not repeat the information I needed, and that is the one that I never found the clue in the Bible. So, for me, I had to go through all of it. duh But, if there was another clue that was more specific, that I missed, then that is good! yes

Thanks. That's good to know for somebody smarter than I am! I went back in and tried to find a more specific clue but still could not. woozy

Today I found several areas that made me say "oh, I remember this". I couldn't figure anything out to do in any of them though. lol I found one clue that I guess I am misinterpreting because it's not working but I know it is the clue I need for this one area. duh

Still playing. Twenty one hours in. Making progress slowly. They really don't make games like this one anymore. I'd give it another try KatieB. smile

Hi all,

dumb question, but I am confused: as the name of the game sounded familiar, i googled and found this game: Riddle of the Sphinx: An Egyptian Adventure
Is the new game a remake of this old game? And why does it say 'enhanced' is there a 'basic' version as well? Thanks for your help, Mike
