If you are having problems getting the game to work correctly, we highly recommend going to our Help pages. Using our Help pages is always the quickest way to get technical problems resolved. Here are a few suggested articles that have helped many people correct these types of problems in the past:

Frequent Crashing of Game
Game Compatibility

While we can offer a known solution for technical issues in the forums, or other tech savy pond residents can swim by with good tips and suggestions, we cannot provide the same excellent level of support provided by our Customer Support team. The forums are not very well suited for the kinds of information gathering and troubleshooting that get these types of issues corrected quickly. If there is a problem with the game, our Support Team can also gather necessary information on what types of computers are being affected by the problem and deliver this information to the developer for a fix.

If you are not able to get a game working properly using our Help pages, please get in touch with our Customer Support team, you can find a link to contact our Support team on the front page of our Help pages.

I have just downloaded this game and am playing the demo. In one of the hidden object scenes I used a hint and the game froze and I had to press ctr alt and del to exit. It came up with an error message - I can't remember what it said. I went back into the game and played again and used another hint and it seems OK. I am a bit loathe to buy it though if this is going to happen again. Also I have a wide screen and there doesn't seem to be a wide screen option for this game which is a shame. All the other games I have bought which Alawar have made fit my wide screen perfectly. Do you think I should uninstall and reinstall it or won't it make any difference??

Same here as plutiman21 and BK3009:

I used a hint in the 1st HOG scene.
It didn't show; game seems to freeze.
When I managed to minimize or leave it/don't remember, there was an error window in the background:

> ?:0: attempt to index field '?' (a boolean value) <
Window title: Lua Error.

When I restarted the game, the hint worked OK in this and the next HOG scene.
I created a new profile, but the error didn't re-occur in the 1st HOG scene.

Looks like a first-activation thing. Running WIN XP.

Didn't play much further yet and probably won't (but not for this reason, but due to the locked SG).

Same here, the cutscenes in the temple and the final scene do not play. The cutscene in the temple actual froze the game and the screen just went black. I had to hit the skip button to continue.

No wide screen option. This makes the game a no buy for me. I think I will play Dire Grove again.

I also had problems with the last 3 Cutscenes. I don't even know how the game ended!

same here- i have no idea how the game ended either. All the other scenes played fine, including the cutscenes, until the last 3. So aggravating!

When hint button was selected it froze. What did I do - deleted the game right away it had a boolean error.
I don't have time to waste on games that can't work the first time.

I also had trouble with the last few cut scenes (I couldn't see any of them after putting the piece in to raise the platform that Angel was lying on). No problem with any of them until then. Hoping it will be fixed soon and I don't have to replay the entire game to be able to see them.

I bought the game without playing the demo and I am sad to say, after playing all night, the cutscenes for the last three chapters as well as for the bonus games do not work. I have no idea how the story ends and I feel seriously ripped of. This is a definite glitch with the game and once again I feel that BGF has not properly beta tested this game. We had similar problems with Victorian Mysteries. I hope that we get an update on our game manager for this because no way is it because of my computor. I have all the necessary updates on my computor.

This game is true to its title "twisted" with lots of turns, items to find and challenges. Problems with HINT, it froze, so I used Ctrl - Alt - Delete, the hour glass came up then the came was alright until the trial ended. This game is definitely a buy. . . . once all the glitches are taken care of. . . . . . . Lovin it.

Played demo and about 40 minutes or so in the game, my computer crashed, never has that happened on my computer. Game was OK, but really nothing new. Tried to play last few minutes, but would not work. So I'll probably just pass on this one.

Everything was great for me until the final cutscene for the regular portion of the game. I just got a black screne with (skip) in the middle. I used the skip, then started the bonus section - and the first cutscene was also a black screne with (skip) in the middle. I haven't finished the game yet, but I would like to see what I'm missing.

I was able to see the cutscenes by replaying the game as a new player.

I didn't see cut scenes either. I also can't put the soldiers in the pot no matter how I try. I'm not that impressed with this game, it's just more of the same old thing without the atmospere. I'm really sorry I bought it.

I was fine until the last cut scene at the end of the bonus chapter and then I got a blank screen so I never actually saw the end. It's a shame really but someone here posted what the final cut scene was so at least I know the ending.
