Hi! I'm running Windows 10, and have had both problems mentioned -- the bracelet and the scalpel -- and one other. I didn't use the octopus amulet as soon as I got it, and when I tried to go back into the room to use it, the game wouldn't let me click there at all. Since it was the Bonus Game, I was willing to quit the game and go back in, click "reset", and start the chapter over. That worked, but what a pain!

Thanks! I finally figured that out. Now my problem is the scalpel I was supposed to use twice disappeared after I used it once and now I can't continue the game!
And it's pungstress.

Just read through the BFG responses to the tech difficulties; their suggestion that we uninstall/reinstall the game and start from scratch doesn't sit too well with me.
If the game had been properly vetted for glitches, we wouldn't be having any problems now, would we?

If there is one thing I should have learned by now, in all of my years being a member of BFG, and that is to read the technical issues of the game's forum BEFORE BUYING the game!!!!!

It WON'T happen again! I came here because the scalpel disappeared after cutting the rope and now I can't open the bag in the carriage, hence I can't do anything else with the game. Waster of $13.99!

We should NOT have to uninstall, reinstall and then start the game over! Takes 100% of the fun out of it. After reading these comments, I see that it would only result in having to do it all over again once I get to the bracelet and then again at the deer if it even worked then!

BFG needs to STOP offering games that have issues until they're ALL resolved.

Can't finish the bonus chapter. Can't get the broken statue to place the wings on it. Reset the bonus game and it still doesn't work. Very frustrated

Update to my Tech Request: It won't work on my Windows 10 System

[Post New]by Poodlebear on Feb 8, 17 1:36 AM
So I had a reply from Tech Support after sending them Dr. Felix file and they said, "I'm sorry to say that it looks as though this game doesn't want to work on your system." but no explanation beyond that. I am running a Windows 10, 1 year old gaming system w/ Intel Core i5 3.5 GHz CPU,16 GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Graphics card. In short, a decent, new(ish) gaming system that will run the most taxing MMOs but I can't run a casual IHOG? O.o

This is now the 3rd game where it just wouldn't work in very similar situations - the game just glitches over some inventory item. I believe it is a Windows 10 issue and wonder when the game designers are going to actually start designing for Windows 10 since you can't buy a new computer w/o it. (sad to say, I think it's crap, and miss the heck outta my Windows 7 system).

I am a little surprised that many of the players now part of the Infamous Bracelet Survivors Club are Mac users, though, so not *all* Windows 10.

I got on here today and read all the problems with getting to the bracelet and getting stuck. Which is what happened to me. then I saw an update for this game and downloaded it. I had to uninstall it and reinstall it due to another issue. But lo and behold, when I went back in to the game, it went right back to the bracelet. No fix. I don't know what the update was supposed to fix, but it didn't fix this problem.

So much for the Update.....which I have set to install automatically after all the games that have needed them.

I have managed not to get caught by the infamous bracelet, but have gotten caught by the scalpel, the deer antlers and now, the minotaur horns and either placing the gargoyle head first or the octopus......
and I am sick to death of Hint sending me uselessly to the Doctor's office.

I love this series of games.....and find it interesting to have Richard and his snarky relationship with his heirs.....but, I thing a certain game company is trying to put out too many game series in too short an amount of time.

I am sick of uninstalling and reinstalling this game.....and sick of starting over....
time for a credit folks.

Scalpel disappeared after I used it to cut the rope to get the TNT so I can't cut the bag in the coach. Any suggestions?

I am in the Bonus Chapter and can't get the Pointer Token in the Hospital with the dagger. I downloaded the update and that didn't help. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled and I still can't get it. Need a fix for the money I have spent. I am running Windows 10 and have a new gaming system.

As others have said, the patch didn't fix the bracelet issue for me. I'm still stuck in the scene that says "Take the bracelet" but the chest is empty because I've already taken it.

Is there another fix in the works for this?

As many others, the new update did not correct the bracelet issue I had, so I uninstalled the game and now I want to install the patch again and it says there is no new update ???? What do i do ? Do we have to quit BFG en masse to make you react ????

After the first (?) update, I made it to the bonus game. Got all the way to the interaction with the hospital room and the dummy. Now I'm left with just 4 of the "stars" and nothing else. Yet my only move is to use a tool to pick up the last "star" from the acid. Hint just leads me to the upper left corner.
