Then click Check for Updates

Your game manager will then show you any available updates that haven't already been downloaded.

For more information click on the following link to view our help article:

I have the new version. But my game freezes while doing the dungeon puzzle. Same error codes as mentioned in the now closed thread. My machine software etc is up to date and plays far more graphic intensive games. I will try and install again and if that fails contact customer support. I hope this is not going to be a common issue again as I can see this thread taking up pages like before.

Thank you bfgZambezi for the update about the fix. I did as I was told to by going in the game manager to get the update, even manually it does not show up. Do I need to just uninstall the game and start all over? If I do un and re install will the download already have the fix? Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. I have to say this sure has put a bad taste in my mouth with this glitch.

Hey Fishies!

I updated the OP and just wanted to follow up to let everyone know that if that update didn't populate, you can reinstall the game to get the newest version. This should help with the issues that have been reported in this thread.

You can uninstall your game by clicking on the trash can icon in your Game Manager, or you can uninstall manually from your control panel.

Windows XP Users

1. Open the Start menu.
2. Select Control Panel.
3. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
4. Find the game title and select the Change/Remove button.

Windows Vista/7 Users

1. Open the Start (pearl) menu > Control Panel.
2. Under Programs and Features, click Uninstall a program.
3. Find and remove the game from the list of programs.

To reinstall, simply sign in to your account Purchase History and hit the "Install Now" button.

Same goes for the trial. The trial and the full version are different so if your trial worked fine, but now your full version is wonky, just uninstall all versions of the game and reinstall from your Purchase History.

Happy gaming everyone!

It said there WERE no updates available. Gee, maybe since my SWT doesn't even open, the Game Mgr doesn't know it's even there? How many times am I going to have to waste my time re-downloading this game after uninstalling it to reinstall it?

I find it absurd that a wk after submitting a ticket to CS I still have a purchased game I cannot play. This new reinstall best work!

Zambesi, I haven't had any technical issues with the game -- do I still need to uninstall/reinstall? Or should I be in the clear?

Deleted old version it would not play would only show game running or application crash. Reinstalled the updated version and it will not work with game manager; I can go to game file under programs and run it. Have played trial and love it but will not be purchasing as I can not play the normal way with game manager.

The new version does not work, there is no update in the game manager. It is not my PC, all my other games work fine. Just another rush by BFG's to get that new game released every day. I got a coupon to replace it but I would rather finish the game. I made it almost to the end before I got "Main.lua:169: attempt to index global 'theProfileManager'(a nil value)" . New version does the same. There is no fix. This is not the first time I have had problems with a game but I will remain with BFG because they do have some great games. I will be more careful about using the whole trial version before I buy, though. Keep gaming, Fishies!

Went to programs in control panel and uninstalled old version. Reinstalled new trial version and am still getting the "access violation" error message.

Anyone else still getting this with the new version?

I am currently having problems with my game.
I bought the full version, and I completed the game. But when I try to play it again it shuts down with some kind of error-thing. I can only get as far as picking up the pen in the very beginning, and then clicking on the ink well. Then it shuts down.
I have tried several times to uninstall the game and then install it again afterwards, but it's being seriously stubborn.
I would greatly appreciate it if some one could help me.

I guess I will join the group and agree that the New Version does not work.
I am stuck with not being able to access the bag of gold coins. I have tried
the uninstall and install bit and that doesn't work. Please fix this problem.

Hi everyone, I've been on BF a long time now but this is the first time I've posted.

I am trying to play the trial but I keep getting the error access code 0x77D2C23C so if this the most updated version it still isn't playing correctly. I so want to play this game and possibly buy it whilst the JULY4THSALE is on but it seems that isn't going to be possible!!

I've looked for the updates that BF have told us to do but alas, no updates available.
Come on BF what can I do to be able to play and buy this game before the time runs out?

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Hi to all fishies everywhere from the Channel Island of Jersey (south of the UK)

You only get one shot, BFG, and this was it. Judging by the sentiments of the above, you're only shooting yourselves in the foot. No plushie for me.
