This game is fantastic! Like old man, I had one freeze when I got in a hurry. Other than that I've had no problems. A couple of times I couldn't figure out the pictures in the strategy guide, but that was the fun of it...I kept going back and until I finally got it. I'm in the hospital looking around and trying to solve some things now. wave

Glad you're enjoying the game, Kay. wave

Kim, that's a shame that the game won't run on your computer. frown Maybe that could be fixed with a small upgrade rather than a whole new computer? I think most of us here would agree that the sentence "it's just a game" isn't in our vocabulary. whistle

I have just started. I am unable to pick up the key between the rocks. I have the metal bar. I have click all over the rocks. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks, pjones6708

I don't recall where you get it from. The strategy guide should be able to help otherwise someone else may be just starting and can answer.

Started the demo and so far no problems but then I've only made it to the gate, the lighthouse and the house and now I'm stuck already... rotfl Oh where do I go/do next...I must have an overblown ego thinking I was finally getting good at these games. think

after completing a morphing object scene; it's the scene that takes place to the left of the porch of the house with the broken sign.

I know I should post at BF, but maybe you could help. My game is shifted to the right. Big black bar on the left, and I can't see the locket on the right. Any Ideas?

Do the morphing items keep doing it or do they quit at some point? If I still need 2 more and back out of the scene will I just lose those 2?

Thanks

They seem to keep it up until you find them all in a scene. Yes, you can back out of a scene and they will still be there when you come back. I was curioius (sp) about that myself so I tested it.

Thanks OldMan44 I did ctrl alt delete so I wouldn't close it out when I went back in I found them.

That's good to know you can back out, your eyes get tired and just need a rest for a bit.

Thanks again
Lori

Have you tried adjusting your screen resolution to see if that helps? For example, someone with a similar problem on the BF forum for the game said that 1280 x 960 improved matters. I would try a few different settings to see if this helps. wave

A BF mod posted the following:

Quote:
-In order to display this game as it was intended, please be sure that your system's screen resolution is set to 1024x768 or higher.

-If your display is off centered, please check and adjust, if necessary, your DPI settings. For those seeing a black bar on the right edge of the screen, you may also want to use auto-adjust while your game is running. (This is a menu option on your monitor.)

I was excited about this game also but I find the stragey guide to not be to informative and I also don't like that the journal doesn't have a lot of info, ie numbers you might need for a puzzle.

@ Lori, You are quite welcome. That's what I have to do now as my eyes are just about gave out for the day/night. I'll be right back at it again after getting some rest though!

@ Lucinda, I don't know about the journal; it seems to me that it is giving the same amount of info that it has given in the past MCF games. As to the stragey guide; for me it gives just enough of a hint to get me pointed in the right direction if I get stuck or miss something, which is all I ask for. From reading the boards on BF I am sure that Margie B will be posting a detailed Walk Thru in the future for the game

To ALL that celebrate Thanksgiving a very Happy Thanksgiving to you all and don't get too stuffed with Turkey & Dressing today. Remember that we all have a great deal to be Thankful for. I know I certainly do. Enjoy your Friends & Family today and maybe a few hours of mystery solving with the latest chapter of the Ravenhearst Saga.


Happy Gamming All,
OldMan44

I am stuck on the eye chart puzzle. I am pretty sure that I am doing it right(I'm following the strategy guide) but I can't seem to solve it. Anybody else having problems with it? Or if you have a solution please help?

Finished the game and loved it! However, what I found odd was that

it assumes the player is a woman. To the guys who finished it, I'd be curious to know what you thought! laugh

Hi Penny Lane, use the magnifying glass on the eye chart to see the bottom line. Find each letter by using the 'heights' from the morgue to work out the number line & how many letters across. It must be randomly generated as I had a different word to the one in the SG. smile

Thanks Marian, I ended up using the auto ajust on the monitor while the game was playing. That seemed to do the trick. Didn't get to thank you last night, too busy playing.

PS:are there no standard HO's in this game? Just the morhping one's?

Thracia - there is one standard HO with word lists, but the setting is inside a children's magazine (similar to Highlights). smile

Chrissie, I have indeed noticed that a few of the puzzles in this game are randomly generated. Thank you for your help with the eye chart puzzle. smile

Thracia, have fun with the game; I'm very glad to hear that "auto adjust" did the trick. wave
