My Goodness, this game is a marathon. I didn't keep track of my time, but I'm sure it was at least 15-20 hours (and I'm not even sure I'm finished yet.) I found Grandfather Margrave, but my storage room is only 56% full. I'm going through the unlocked rooms now, but I don't seem to be collecting any more objects. I'm confused about the ending. Are they leaving an "excuse" for sequels?

I did chat with BFG and received some ideas about updating my drivers. I guess no one else has reported any problems yet. I will try their suggestions but since all the other games including the lastest HOG Mystery game worked all the way through on my PC, I still think this one needs a patch.

I agree it sounds like a patch is in order. I also contacted Big Fish and they suggested driver update. Upon checking I have the latest drivers. Since so many of us are finding the same problems I wonder about the driver issue. I mentioned this thread to Big Fish perhaps they will check it out. Great game I am continuing with it and yawning a lot during the black outs. Positive side is I can get coffee, turn the washer on, gather dirty dishes all those good things we do on commercial breaks. Gotta look at the donut and not the hole.

Thanks for all your help.I really thought when the screen went black for such a long time that it had crashed ,then it would come on again.As for my other problems.I don't know why I wasn't getting the save and quit message but finally after I installed it 3 times then I updated my video drivers,Direct X and Flash then rebooted,btw I'm playing it on my son's laptop.I've only had one glitch in it so far,when I got to the part to pick up the crest(that was my freezing problem)it froze for a min then I got an error message and it crashed,so I went back into the game and it had brought me back to where I left off and I haven't had any trouble so far....yet.

Thanks for the support.

Having real probs with this game, I get what sounds like a ticking bomb where I think I should be hearing music - and the game has now frozen. Redownloaded to find exactly the same stuff, contacted BF, had an automated reply almost immediately but no reply to my problem & I emailed them 3 days ago. Have now re emailed, wailing loudly. Fingers crossed

Can you save your progress at all with this game? I don't seem to be able to, unless I'm missing something.

I have not played, but I am sure you can. Some games require you to complete a section or location in order for the save to work. Have you done that?

Hi Ana,

I was wrong, I just went back and opened the game and I started where I left off.

But I'm thinking, I do have to complete the rooms before I can quit or it won't save, because that already happened, I think.

Thanks,
Flo

ooohhh, thank you.

While I'm here. Just wondering if the items in this game ever change. It gets pretty boring when you have to find the same things all the time. They have everything to find in each room, you just have to find the selected ones, but am getting tired of looking at the same stuff all the time.

Just had a very helpful email from Big Fish - they are looking into game probs with the developer so watch this space !
Flo, on the screen that kept crashing at the end I played it 5 times and it was different objects to find each time.

Hi Jenny,

Yes, it's different objects to find each time, in each room, however, they are all the same objects in all rooms. Usually in a game, different rooms have different things, but this game has all the same things in each room, they are just randomly thrown into different places, and there is just too much of it.

But, that's my opinion, others may enjoy it.

Flo

Hey, has anyone else figured out the problem of not finishing the game with 100% objects? I've been playing through this and it seems like not all of the levels give you objects for completing them, but I have searched all over the internet, asked other people, and I can't seem to figure out what the trick is to getting 100%.

Anyone? frown

Jenny P,
You seem to have been the only one who's gotten any real answers.I've written them every day since it came out and maybe once they told me to try the Tech section,I hate to say this but I has already that,I'm some of you know I used to be moderator in the Tech Forum so I'm not completely stupid.The las EM I got Dat said use the chat when it's open so I'm going to do that If all else fails I'm going to call them.As for my opinion I'm sure it needs a patch,but that's just me.

I still can't get it to run on my own computer ,so glad I have my sons Laptop,the next thing I'm going to do is try it on my Daughters computer,I've already done all her updates.

Thanks for listening to my ranting,ozma

I like this game it's become a challenge to get it to run properly now.
Another thing is how can they say it was the first time they heard of any problems,it seems like everyone who's had problems has written to them.

OK end of rant

I really enjoy mornings. I just wish they came later in the day.

I save to desktop and after it installs, you can delete the .exe file.

They asked me to send them a DX diagnostic file - and gave me step by step easy to follow instructions as to how to do it.
I will wait til the game developers tweak it, then redownload.

I have noticed that the objects seem to get smaller as the game progresses. I almost have the door crest finished and I have noticed another unusual item. While working in a room, if you pause the screen...wait the hints continue to increase but the time does not decrease. Thus giving more clues in a lesser time, which is helpful when the objects are so small and hard to find. Don't know it this is another glitch or intended...but a nice plus if it is an error.

Hi Cherie,

I noticed that also, I had to pause for a phone call, and as I was talking on phone, the hints kept coming. However, the gathered hints are only for that room. Once you go to the next room, it reverts back to 2 hints.

I played this game and was very disappointed by the ending when I actually finished looking through the same six rooms over a period of three or four days. of course it could have something to do with getting an error message right at the end of the game and I am not really sure if the way it ended was actually the way it was suppose to end or if they were planning on making another game after this one.

I finished too and got no error message. I guess it was just an abrupt ending. I was disappointed.

Little Red: I had the same question. I finished the crest and found grandfather and I guess the game is over, but I only have 57% of the items in my storage room. I was anticipating a final challenge of finding the stored items, but I guess that's the end of the game. It kind of left me hanging.

Only 6 rooms Bitty Kitty? I counted 16 rooms.

Flo, I was getting tired of looking at the same items also, but then when I got past the halfway point, new items started showing up. That was refreshing except the bad news is that the rooms become even more crowded with stuff.
