greatsmitty,

There's no need for the Cd to be on the drive. You can play without.
If you need help, please post at Hints forum.
Sorry that your game got stuck.

I have some parts written. Tell me if you want a copy of what I have written so far. It's so slow going right now. Life intervenes... smile

My gosh, MaG, you have some parts written ALREADY??????? Your idea of slow going certainly is different than mine, LOL.

The graphics in this game are lovely. The Hercule character is spot on.

i finished the game. i agree the environment is lovely, the format for the gameplay has been perfected, and there is some great humor and great characterization. the music/sound is also very well done. there are lots of possibilities in the plot/subplot.
that said, i have to say i was disappointed by the ending. but i won't ruin it for any of you, and it was fun enough that i would play it again.

2 things i need to report about this game--glitches if you will:

1-after the murder, when i was back in poirot's room, i went to check the rooms of the other guests. i had a long interview with an invisibile Kenneth Marshall, and after it was over i was stuck in the room! the menu and every thing was gone--i had to control-alt-delete and shut down. i tried it again after to see if the same thing would happen, and it did.

2-on the evening of the 24th, i was looking through the rooms when i noticed the 'take' cursor appear out of nowhere. it was just under the menu and didn't correspond to anything in the scenery. so i clicked and i got a master key in my bag. then i clicked again, another identical master key. i ended up getting twelve, i could probably have got more. it was very weird.

Hi poirot77 and welcome to GameBoomers! welcome I take it that you are a fan of the Agatha Christie novels?

hi Becky, thanks for the welcome! this site is awesome.
yes, i'm a big christie fan. but i'm not a purist-i think the identity of the murderer should be changed for the adventure games, otherwise what's the point of 'solving' anything?

do you know what the next game in the series will be?

Is it true that this game comes on 3 CDs instead of 2 for some odd reason?

Three CD's is correct SirGraham but the game will play without the use of a CD.

I don't understand TAC, why not use a DVD? 3 CDs is so uncomfortable.
I also heard that in this specific case, CD #3 could easily fit inside CD #2 if they used a 700MB media, and that CD #3 contains only a few MB of data. Is this true? What are the sizes of CD #2 and #3??
I thought it would be much cheaper to release 2 CDs instead of 3...

I just started playing this game yesterday, and already I am having problems with it. I have checked over at Glitches, and others are having the same problem as I am. Whenever I go outside the hotel there is whiteout, and can't see anything and have to shut the computer down kapoot!!I am not very computer literate, but I am going to try to do what they are telling others to do in regard to the driver and see if that will do the trick. So far it seems like a great game, I hope I can fix it so as to be able to play. Wish me luck
Beverly
I fixed the game by updating my video card, and doing a clean boot like the techs at game website told me to. No whiteouts so far.

If anyone else is having the problem with "whiteout", there is a solution over at the glitch forum. I tried it and it works, for now anyway, and am trying to continue playing this game----
tedious or not!! Beverly

I have had to shelf this game as it is tooooooo tedious to play with all the "whiteouts". I received a reply from Dreamcatcher, but it was only a generic solution, but I did as they told me to do, but still having "whiteouts" so until I get a custom solution it will have to stay on the shelf. It is a pity as it was getting to be a great game to play.

Stay safe Bevlee! Meanwhile, I hope there's a patch in the making that'll solve this!

I just received the game today- loaded it and started to play-have played for a couple of hours now-time passed quickly-- I am enjoying this game- graphics area great and I can follow the line of thought ---so far at least--lots of walking around -but I don't mind at all. bravo

I'm probably about half way through the game and I am enjoying it immensely! First off, the graphics are wonderful and I am also enjoying the comic banter between Hastings and Poirot. I also like the fact that you are given significant time to establish key players before a murder happens. Then the game really picks up! I also like the "to do" list you are given to help you advance in the game. It's not obvious hints, but gives you an idea of what you need to do. Fantastic!

I got this game yesterday and stayed up late playing it! It's so cool, definetly a spooky feel to it and I love how it follows the book pretty well. I also like how they add the tasks you have to do in order to help people because there's a reason behind each one.

I finally finished. Good, good game. Much better than the last Agatha. I had to redo a few chapters due to my enthusiasm and thus overlooking a few important things, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Loved the humour. Teddo

I'm up to the middle of act 5 right now, close to the end and it is awesome! There's times I just load the game to look at the beautiful scenery, I love how they even make the clouds drift along! I love how the characters move around so you come across them suddenly and I love all the little mysteries to solve as well as the big one!
