Its excellent and I bought it but couldn't figure out what a Spanner was. Had to use a clue. Thankfully, they are generous with them. Is this a British term for a

I just got the game today and was wondering if anyone else was having the screen go black for a few min between scenes.I wrote to BF customer scervice and I also reinstalled the game but it still does it.

My other question was do you have to get a certian grade to pass the freeplay minigames?The others won't unlock even though I've played about 6 levels of the regular game.

Any suggestions?

Hi ozma,

I think the black screen is part of the game, just like intermission. I had it also.

It should have asked you when you quit playing - I am pretty sure I was asked if I wanted to save and quit.

I just started the demo again and when I use "play" it says to continue down by the skull.

The loading time is long, that is the black screens and yes ozma the black screen is a bit long.

NYLady, I thought we only get 2 hints think so I was afraid to use one. Thanks for the spoiler as I would never have known what a spanner was either.

Love,
Linda


So many games, so little time.

I also noticed the long black pause. I was concerned that it was my computer, all of you have put me at ease. I will purchase this game since its functioning as it should. Looks like its going to be a fun trip. I got a passing grade and still did not go onto the next view. Guess we will figure that one out.

The black screen is annoying. I think maybe it's designed to add to the suspense and spooky aspect of the theme, but it makes me think my computer has crashed every time it happens. That scares me worse than anything else!

deb, the exact same thing happened to me as well. Even doing the orientation trick on my PC didn't make it right side up (the orientation trick is ALT + CTRL and then the arrow keys).

I might contact the developer about this since BFG is really only the distributor.

You get 2 hints with each room, and every 20 minutes another is added no matter where you are. So, if you don't use any hints for awhile they may add up.

My screen blacks out too. In the beginning while it's loading it does it for such a long time I think there is a problem and then walla the Big Fish screen pops up and I go "whew!" smile

You get an extra hint after every 3 minutes of game time. It makes a little chiming sound. I'm still shaking my head over the bollard, bobble hat and space bouncer. This game goes on forever.

I always thought a spanner was an adjustable wrench with teeth, but apparently British spanners are the same as our open end wrenches.

New game at Big Fish games it really is a good game it has so many neat puzzles and story is pretty good. It reminds me of Ravenhurst in some ways. They change the hidden objects each time to you play and area and sometimes they are so small you have to save some hints to find them. But I like this game so far.

played the demo and have a question. Do you have to get 100% plus within a certain time limit to unlock another room? I got kind of tired of the attic after five different rounds and still couldn't get into another room.

JoanieS,
I wondered that too but the thing is you have to do about 6 of the main puzzles to open a locked room in the Freeplay puzzle room.

My question was do you get something special in the Freeplay room if you get a high score like an A?

I love this game and think it is a long one when I see how many things we need.

Has anyone gotten a the "blue screen of death" while playing this game? I have uninstalled it and removed the previous saves and then reinstalled. I thought it was ok and then tonight I got the "blue screen" again. I will contact BFG support tomorrow as it is too late tonight. I hope these is a fix, since I have been enjoying this game a lot.

I'm now having another problem,when I play the main game sometimes an item lights up before I've found the last few items,then the game freezes and I have to shut off the computer an start again.The first time it happened it worked just fine.I hope BF fixes these glitches quickly.Has anyone else had this problem.I've been in the last 2 main games when this happened.

Just a reminder, If you have issues with games, you have to write the place you downloaded from or they don't know to fix it. The more that write, they will realize it isn't just an isolated case.

Ana thanks
