I can't get past the first part after going into the house. Won't let me go upstairs. I have reenstalled several times. It just freezes and even the hint button won"t activate. When are you going to fix? Seems a lot of players have been having problems for a few months. The trial seemed to work OK. Then after I bought it, here we go. Please hurry!!

Hi there ivoryblue (and others of you who also had this problem),
I also had this problem initially, but it was fixed when I deleted my old profile and started a new one.
If you have already started a new profile, delete them all and start again. The problem seems to be associated with the first profile and the others won't work until all of them are cleared out.
You might even have to find the "roaming" folder for this game and delete it also before you start again.
Of course, you have to start over again, but this should help you to move on.
Cheers

Thanks DragonLadyOz. You are a life saver. I deleted my profile and now it works. It still needs to be fixed. Who would have guessed to do that? Actually, I started with a fresh profile the first time because I wanted to start fresh. That's when I ran into the problem. But, all fixed now!! Keep your fingers crossed. Hope it works for others. I don't believe I saw a "roaming" folder. What is that? Thanks again.

I tried to play the trial, it says mode not supported. I tried to change my pixels to 1600 by 900 but my flat screen monitor does not support. So, I uninstalled. If they work the kinks out I would like to download the trial again and play it to see if I want to purchase. But, for now, not going to screw up my computer anymore, it went to black, and all I could hear was music (twice).

just like most others on here having issues five minutes into this game. after seeing Grandpa silhouette. haved tried some of the solutions recommended by others like uninstalling (both through games manager and through the actual progam files folder) and then reinstalled. done this about FOUR times and yet still no damn progress. have tried deleting profiles but that doesnt do anything either. soooo regretting buying this game. and yes extremely sloooooooooooow.
noticed a post from BIG FISH two months ago talking about these issues but clearly nothing has been done. are they giving refunds for this game since it aint fixed yet since so many people having problems. or?? they could just remove the game altogether so no other loyal BF users encounter the same problem.
very disappointed in this buy. are there any other solutions that I should try while I wait for a response from the Big Fish Crew??

and I dont know why but for some reason my username has changed to NULL!! what the???

I have not had any technical issues (I have Windows 7) except maybe what is "the end" of the game. All I know is that after I go through the tunnel, and then am told to hide as some "scary" apparition passes, the screen is totally black with soft eerie music in the background...do I keep listening and something will happen? Is this the end? if so, why doesn't it say "The End" and roll the credits?

I agree with others that some of the miniscule hidden objects are impossible to find. I finally get the "hint" and have to click and click around inside the circle until something is hit... but it quickly is gone and I'm never able to see what I had just found...and the list of objects to find has the object's name quickly disappear, so that I have to think and ponder and try to figure out what I just "found" by random clicking inside the hint circle.

What appears to be the abrupt end of the game into eerie blackness isn't satisfactory to me -- I want to know it's the end with credits rolling.

I just finished the game and got that black screen also. I just clicked on the screen and then I clicked on the bottom left by the bag and the wall does open.

Ditto; much as I like it the transitions are much too slow and will probably annoy me if I buy it.

I am on the hidden object screen just outside the greenhouse and for weeks now I have been trying to get the catarpillar but it just either isn't there or it won't capture it. What should I do??????

The game doesn't "Save" for me. I've started it twice, but when I guit the game, it doesn't save where I was and starts at the beginning.
