thanks for trying. It's not those things, over years of playing here and with CS I know how to up date these things and I do frequently.

And Dr felix I attach now mostly straight of as a matter of course with problems with games and for a couple of years now, CS has always said it's not my settings etc.

I have just finished recently playing escape from ravenhearst, which is the biggest HOG re graphics etc there is and I had no problem playing that.

I think it runs hot this game and it could be a fan thing making my laptop shut down. But I'd say that is a problem as if I have never had that with any marathon run games including hours of escape from ravenhearst, it's how the game is set up. It really must be a hog!

And when my screen goes black, I still have my skull hint button and journal. it's only for a few seconds and maybe others have this with every game and it's normal. But it's the first lag I've every experienced in a game.

Thanks for trying to help though. Did manage to get through it eventually!

Sorry, but so many times people don't do those things and people really do have keep their PCs updated if they expect to play any game designed in the last year. It sounds like you do know what to do. In my experience, it's usually been Flash player causing black screen issues, but RAM and/or too slow a processor are right behind that.

It's too bad you had problems with this game. I think it was one of the best I've played recently, but I'm sure your enjoyment was hindered by the shutdowns. Glad you got through it anyway.

I completely agree a lot of people don't know how to update these things. Going into adobe to test shockwave and flash player was the first thing I did. I would have thought it was more laptop if the whole screen went black and not just the scene changing as all the bottom stuff stayed in place.

It was the shutting down which was most annoying (but it did open in the right place) as I think it must have been overheating (and I do play on a proper laptop tray with vents cleaned and free).

I did really enjoy the game despite the problems, just wanted to post to give feedback to devs for next game to try and reduce the hog or whatever tech stuff it is that is causing it, for the next game.

thanks

I have tried downloading this on to my iPad and the game freezes before it gets to the title page when after downloading it states "tap here to continue". I have downloaded this three times now without success. The reduced purchase price will be over soon. Any ideas what I need to do please? Thanks, Cath

I'm playing the iPad version. Got the pruning shears. Snipped the rose. Went to snip flower of life and got a cut scene (big explosion) now the shears are missing from my inventory. I can't get the flower of life.

I can't place the crown on the king at sue outside the church to get the artifact out of his hand. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix?

I cannot place the crown on the king's head outside of church also. It keeps telling me I found the crown. Has anyone found a solution to this? I play it on my iPad.

SKELETONS! i have tried every single imaginable combination. Even looked at strategy guide, took pic with phone and placed skeletons exactly in same position but it will not let me continue. Playing in advanced mode and it won't let me go in and change the mode so I can skip this puzzle.

Were the issues ever fixed? I was at the rose and dagger door lock puzzle and got a "no string" error. Had to hit an OK button and the game resumed, but if this is any indication of what to expect, then I will pass on this game.Even at half the price, bug-ridden is bug-ridden and takes away the possible playing pleasure.

That's not a glitch, the skeleton puzzle is just very hard to solve. Look in the "Skeletons move, but still stuck" thread. I posted a move by move spoiler there.

Hello Fishies

Bought the game without trial. MY bad. The game doesn't go on Widescreen or full screen because this game has the 2 black bars on both sides. My other games are in full screen. Is it me or anyone else has this problem?

What I know, games that are 'old' have the black bars. Does that mean that the developer doesn't know how to program their game yet in full screen? BFG could they change it please. It is not an enjoyable game when all screen is so narrow.

I can't use any of the items I've collected. Just started the game and thought I had to buy the unlocked version to get them to work so I did and so nothing. All items and menu button is on right side and I can't click on menu and hint button but no items so I can even but the handle on the door to get started. Please help asap.
