Post any Hodgepodge Hollow technical issues here only

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.

the game comes on at supposedly full screen but the picture is shifted to the right so you don't get all of the picture. there is no button for menu or options so that i can change it, so was unable to play the game.

I love the game, guess it is because I love gnomes. But I have a problem with one of the things you have to make. The section where you take toad stools, tails, and night in the copper bowl. When I put the forgetmenowtears over the bowl it explodes in black dust.

Help.

Mermaids - the seahorse shows me the O2 recipe, but I can't get to the potions lab. It keeps going back to the mermaid place and I have to summon the seahorse again. Stuck in a loop.

Same problem - section where you take toad stools, tails, and night in the copper bowl. When I put the forgetmenowtears over the bowl it explodes in black dust.

Even tried using a hint for each step, and it still blows up.

I am having the same issue at the Mermaids - I take the card from the seahorse, go out to the map, but the game won't let you progress from there. It sends you back to the seahorse.There is definitely a glitch here.

I found the mouse was very sticky which made the spell making hard.

I am having the same problems as others in the Sweet Dreams potion. The bowl explodes everything with the tears. Help!

found the solution- put the flower over the cauldron then over the bowl.

I'm having the same problem with the O2U potion. Pick up the card from the seahorse, click on the Gnome at the top and he says: "Let's go to the map" but when you click on the map, every location is grayed out. Only place to go is back to the Mermaid Castles which puts you back to the previous scene. You can't advance. I've written to BFG help, but since it's the weekend, I probably won't hear anything before Monday. I read in the forums that some folks have said they finished the game, so don't know why some of us are having problems and others are getting through.

I think you have to hold the forgetmenot fairy over your cauldron first, then when you see the tears, pick her up, put it over the copper bowl and then the tears will fall into your bowl.

For those having problems with the seahorse, mermaids on the O2U potion, I was stuck here for quite awhile. Wrote BFG Help Center, but then I decided to start over with a new user profile. (Yeah, I now, but it least it seemed worth it at the time.) This time, when I got to that section, everything worked fine. The different sections of the map opened up so that I could go on and pick up the ingredients to continue. I don't know if that means it's a technical glitch or what, but at least I've now been able to progress through the game. I'll let you know if customer support tells me anything later.

With the OU2 potion just click on the gnome a few times to continue with the game- it worked for me!
