Maybe I'm too old for this game but so far it hasn't been any fun. It's so difficult that it's stressful. I play games for pleasure and to wind down after a hard, long day. This game is over over my head and I've played games for fifteen years now. Having to follow a Stategy Guide step-by-step ruins any game.
There is no progression in the story line that makes any sense. I actually forgot that there was a story because the clues are so hard to find and difficult to piece together. There is no factual reasoning just a bunch of things that don't belong together. This is probably my last game too. The graphics are beautiful but they don't make up for the dis-jointed game play.

We purchased this stupid game soon after it first came out and we are STILL here, NOT being able to play! It got stuck in the fireplace issue and NOTHING we do changes that. We were not even lucky enough to be able to uninstall and reinstall each time to play! NO PLAY AT ALL is possible for us until they DO ANOTHER FIX! We have been waiting all these weeks now, and I still so NO FIX! I have e-mailed tech spt endlessly, continue to be told "no idea" when fix will be completed. I'm approaching my limit now. If I don't see this fix soon I will demand my money back. We are SOOOO disappointed. I'd sure like to know why this company continues to sell this game, KNOWING that people are having issues ALL over the place! I would NEVER have purchased it when I did!!! Completely frustrated. They did issue me game credit for my trouble but, honestly, I don't like the way they are doing business with this entire issue. I have yet to even LOOK at any of there games anymore to even attempt to use my credit..............

Update sounds good but if I have to reinstall, will I loose everything and have to go back to the beginning?
My problem is that I'm stuck in the attic since getting the record. No matter what I do, there is no way downstairs or off the balcony. I have not skipped anything that I know of, am running Vista and had no problems with the usual things noted here - just this stuck problem. I even took it off full screen. Have the fastest 6 gig ram, biggest compluter and everything has been fine up till now - much to my surprise.
Anyway, sure would like to get past this little problem before I rip out all my hair.
Big thanks to anyone with any answers for me!!

You originally got out of the attic by going down the rope after the trap door was opened. Try clicking on the floor around the trap door (if you can't see the rope) to see if that gets you down to the theater level. Then, just go out the window and click on the ladder (barely visible in the bottom right side of the screen) and you should be back at the front porch of the mansion. If clicking the ladder doesn't work, try clicking off in the distance, towards the top of the screen, and see if that works.

(I assumed that you already got the axe and got rid of the boards on the window to reveal the balcony. If you haven't done that, you have to get the axe from the library behind the bookcase.)

Good luck

Can someone please tell me what to do after I've freed the twins--I just installed this game 2 days ago, do I need the updated version that everyone is talking about or do I already have it?

Get the sun from under the vines in the cemetery.

Get the moon from the Statue of Rose in the garden.

Place the sun and moon in the center of the fireplace puzzle.

Click and drag the symbol that looks like a spiral with a dot over it, to the empty spot on the left side beside the sun.

Click and drag the symbol that looks like a 76 mashed together, to the empty spot on the right side beside the moon.

Then pull the handle at the top.

You have to go into the house and then the kitchen before you can open the gate. One the wall of the kitchen, you'll find a drawing of the position of the bird skeleton.

In order for us to help you, we need to know where you are in the game (not the case file # because that varies) and what items you have in your inventory. There's a thread for each section of the game that might be able to help you. If not, either post your question in that thread (preferrably) or ask your question in a new post.

There's lots of help available here from other gamers.

Someone once suggested to look at the position on the head, then adjust the limbs according to that. Sometimes the head is tilted in the drawing, and you have to allow for that when you're looking at a straight up image on the gate. Other than that, I can only suggest that you do one limb at a time. Each limb has two joints so just click on them until that limb looks correct, then move on to the next limb. The problem I had is that I kept putting the left leg at an angle from the first joint, when it was actually supposed to be straight down.
