What do you mean Mad? I have a steam code and a GoG code from BigFinish. I think you should have another email.

I've certainly not been sent a GOG code yet, BrownEyedTigre whistle

But even if I am eventually sent one, it will not change how disgusted I am with the way this issue has been handled rolleyes

[I've also backed several other games via Kickstarter where DRM Free status has been promised. I just hope there won't be a mess like this when any of THOSE are released eek]

I got mine from GOG and didn't need any code. Downloaded real good.
I was sent a code for download from stm. but didn't use it.

They sent out new emails today and that was followed by another email with a GoG key. The first email is in my first post. Maybe check your spam folder?

It's very sad (but understandable) that the discussion about the game has been totally overshadowed by this Kickstarter charade. I've started playing the game tonight and it's absolutely excellent.

I agree, Mikael.

It's good to hear your opinion of the game. I hope you continue to enjoy it. wave

I apologize for the Big Fish confusion. I did not mean for this to be a discussion about Big Fish at all. I was merely trying to point out the differences between Steam and other download sites and the fact that they all have things that some may or may not like about them.

My whole point was that, when you download a game, be it from Steam, Big Fish, The Adventure Shop or whatever, you either adhere to their policies or you refuse to use them. I don't think that a couple of days to wait for BFG to get the codes from GOG was unreasonable and, as I pointed out in my original post they should be given credit for trying to get the game out to their supporters as soon as possible. So it was Steam that happened first. They eventually did get the GOG codes out and as many people pointed out when they had to wait from April to May for the release it was worth the wait.

I agree with Mikael, this thread should be more about the game and I also am enjoying the game very much. I particularly like the flashbacks from other Tex games (I even saw one from the original) and the old familiar characters as well as some new ones.

I feel that this game was worth the wait and like the improvements they made on game movement and graphics. I say way to go BFG and thanks for the game.

Some people just don't like Steam and that's there right I don't particularly like the Adventure Shop because I've had some bad experiences with them and that's my right. Others may prefer the Adventure Shop.

Anyway I'm just happy that I've got the game and I am really enjoying being in the Tex Murphy environment once again.

Yes. My Gog Code email has just arrived, BrownEyedTigre, directly into my In Box.
But what a palaver it has been to get it !! thumbsdown

But I am very pleased to hear that those who are already playing the game are finding it good thumbsup

And I do apologise if I have contributed to this thread being "wrongly used" (?) to express disappointment and disgust at how the whole charade has played out yes

Can someone who's playing the game tell me how to "save" my games? I don't see any information on "saving" or "loading" games.


The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

Mary while in the game you hit the esc key and the main menu will come up. You should see a save option click on that and your list of saves will become available. At the bottom you need to type in the name of the save you prefer and click on save or hit return and your game will be saved.

John,
Nothing happens when I press the "esc" key--nothing at all. I tried several times including right after the "day one" screen.

That's strange. Perhaps you should bring this up over in the glitches board. How do you exit the game?

John,
The only way I can get out of the game is if I use Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

I got the game directly through Big Finish Game.

Hmmm, evidently your esc key is not working. Maybe it's just this game or maybe it is your keyboard I again suggest that you ask this question at the Glitchs forum and possibly someone there might have an answer as to why your esc key is not working. You could also ask the tech support people at BFG.

I've dropped a note to BFG. We'll see what they have to say.

Also as an additional thought, almost every game that I know of uses the esc key to get to the main menu. Do you have another game installed that you could load and see it your esc key works in that game? If it does then it's probably this game but if it also doesn't work in the other game then it's probably your keyboard. Just a thought.

I went to a YouTube and maximized the screen; then I used my "esc" key to return to the smaller-sized screen. It worked, so I don't think my keyboard is the problem.

Did you try the F5 to save and F9 to load that plumgas told you about?
From what you said earlier, your escape key is still not working in the game.
Has that situation changed?

Is the game out yet,I pre-ordered from GOG.com, but it's not showing up in my account yet. (I see it listed, but no link to download it!)
--------------

Never mind, I spoke too soon, I had to refresh my GOG.com account and the downloads showed up!

Now, do I keep playing BS4, and Tesla Effect after, or start Tesla, and go back and forth ?

I bought it on Steam and downloaded it last Thursday and played off and on since them. I'm on Day 7 and maybe because I'm a veteran of the Tex Murphy games (as played them when they first came out all those years ago) but most of the puzzles don't seem too difficult. Some I've had to get hints for or consult the playthrough on youtube. Especially the stuff in Day 5 as there was one puzzle I would have never mastered finding pieces for as thought I looked everywhere in a room to find them but sure enough I missed one area.

Up to you old buddy but if you want help on Tesla feel free to post and I'll be sure to get you a clue or hint to get you on your way. As the only thing I don't like about the in game hint system is in the old days they'd give you a hint or two where now they tell you everything you need to do step by step but then again if you view items in your inventory once you pick them up you get a hint there too.
