Initiallly access violation errors, but after opening the file location of the game and running it as admin., I was able to play. Then after starting the trial game, after finding the shovel, the "lights" went out and I went back to the main menu of the game and resumed and returned to get the shovel, could play it no problem. No sooner after resolving all of that, my inventory disappeared! Had to go back to the main menu again and then resume, and my inventory returned. Finally, after locating the artifact, all of my inventory disappeared and it kept telling me to return the artifact to the prisoner. This time it was over---I coudn't make the inventory items return even after closing the game and starting over. THIS GAME IS FULL OF BUGS! Didn't anyone in the tech dept. try it first? I'm glad I didn't buy it...yes I know BF will give credit, but sometimes you just want to play the game you originally purchased.

I hope they find a solution. Sorry for the long post, but I've been getting error access error codes for the last three games I've tried as a trial.

I want my money back on this one! I lost my inventory while giving the deed back to Sewel and while I got my inventory back, I cannot progress to the **** scene behind him. I rather not write to tech support only to be told to update my computor which I have and/or send Dr Felix, which I have done on numerous occasions. This last two months we have seen too many games with glitches, I have been a member since 2007 and 99.99%, all games have worked for me. I am still waiting to hear from BFG regarding a fix on this game. It seems that many members will be asking for a refund on this game.

Thank you, Hairteach! I had the disappearing inventory problem and, when I exited and came out to read the other posted woes, I saw yours and, sure enough, my inventory was back when I restarted the game. Also, thank to (s)he who explained about using the "familiars" doodad. Of course, I had to retrace my travels and meet all those animals again. No biggie. I've been enjoying the game, and the disappearing inventory is the only problem I've had. Glad there's an easy solution!

I think I've only had problems with 2 or 3 game since I've been a member (2+ years), but just to add to the comments already posted....

When I got to the hill with the bat hanging from the tree, the entire game shut down. I had error messages from the game itself, error messages from Windows, and it took about 5 minutes before my desktop semi-righted itself (resolutions were not where they had been before I started the game). I had 14 minutes left of demo-time and I'm hesitant to try to start it again. Maybe tomorrow...

That being said, I thought the beginning of the game was very well done. I was really trying to hurry up and do what I was told. Nice to feel some sort of anxious-ness when playing a game.

Very nice graphics, nice music, nice puzzles so far (although they have been on the easy side).

Sorry for morphing into a little review - I couldn't help it - wanted to give something positive after reading page after page of problems.

Happy gaming and fixing to all!

I lost my inventory also after returning with the bone carving, exited game, came back in like some said to do and she was telling me to go get the bone carving again but that wasn't an option anymore, so I have deleted the game, was going to buy it too, but since there are so many things wrong I won't be buying for a long time, maybe by next yr they will have fixed it and I may purchase then.

I've tried playing this game more than once on two different computers and had same problems on both so I know it's not the operating system. Even when I'd close out the game, I still couldn't make anything work the way it was supposed to. Guess I'm not going to get to play the game I paid for until they get it fixed!!!!

Seems like a good game. My problem was the arrow freezing, game slowed, and intro music and voice sound seemed slurred. Other than that it seems like an "ok" game. Once the glitches are fixed, will check it out again later.

I am having the same problem in this spot, I have a black screen for the model puzzle. I have lost my inventory many times but can get it back by just exiting the game and then restarting. But this time I can't find a fix that works, so I won't be able to finish the game without the key that is needed. This is the 2nd game within 2 weeks I have played almost to the end and then a glitch happens. Green Hills Sanitarium was the other. Both of these games are excellent.

I got the item, brought it up to her window, and handed it over. She gave me a dialogue along the lines of "You have my thanks, my name is Somethingsomething, I worked for the Parris", but when I clicked the dialogue wouldn't advance or disappear. I could move my inventory, use my journal, even click on "menu", but it was like just her dialogue was frozen. So I exited to the main menu, returned to gameplay, and now she's asking me for her item again. It's gone from my inventory, the place I got it from can't be accessed (the game won't even let me click on the spot because the item is gone and the puzzle is solved) so I can't progress.

Very disappointed since I was enjoying it up until that part. Judging by the numerous bug complaints of repeated issues (vanishing inventory, "access violation") from so many people, it sounds as though this one needed a bit more testing before release.

Have been enjoying this game but it keeps freezing on me. It was fine the first 2 days and now playing as a different player for the 3rd time my screen keeps freezing or going black. Right now I am at the forest with the Putnam girl and the Parris girl and I put the fire out with a bucket of water but the fire rages on I can't get more water and really don't want to start at the beginning for the fourth time. Please somebody do something.....this game would be great without the glitches. Help Big Fish!!!!!!!

I have rarely had technical issues with games but I'm having the issue as everyone else with inventory items disappearing in different locations. I solved this by exiting the game and then going back in and it was okay. I'm getting almost to the end of game and asked to do a task, did that task and inventory went blank. I exited and came back and inventory items are there however the task has not been performed and the **** scene where I got the item for task doesn't work and I can go no further in the game. Very frustrating as I know it is for everyone.

You're right soblessed57 for not d/l any of the listed games until they are fixed, if they're fixed.

I backed out and the screen was black, except for the hint button which was working, and the skip button which was not. I have started the game under a new profile to see if that will work. Now I am wondering if I should have uninstalled and started from there. I was really enjoying the game up until now.

This is happening with my game also. Put all the models in place, but then screen goes dark. I'm going to try the "Dr. Felix" suggestion. If anyone else figures out the problem, please let us know.

Big Fish.....What is going on with you. People,including me, are having a lot of tech. problems with games lately. I can't believe that it's everyone's computer! I just left a company that was re-organizing and down sizing and it was and is a disaster. I get the feeling that Big Fish is going through the same process. Maybe I'm wrong but nothing is being addressed and I fear you are going to lose loyal customers.
