Phone box

Solved all the puzzles, got all the numbers but the 7 key didn`t do anything when I pressed it at the end of the sequence of numbers I need to dial. Reset the whole puzzle and the timer is not in my inventory but when I went back to the stairs to get it, not there either. What do I do now??
Hi emmanem2! The timer should still be on your puzzle even after resetting, check SPOILER (highlight between arrows to read): > the phone numbers dial<… As for using the number 7 you might want to check the thread "The phonenumber in strong mans scene" to see if that gives you some help, you'll have to scroll down a few posts to find the ones relating to this puzzle. You can copy and paste this URL to get to it.: http://forums.bigfishgames.com/posts/list/263005.page
Good luck!

I had a problem with the Raven's Cote puzzle as well, but I realized it was my fault. I was putting the pieces in the slots to the left when they should be left in the slots to the right. Not sure if that will help anyone.

Now that I've finished the game, as well as the bonus and secret room, it's not letting me restart in Allister's mode. Do I have to hit reset to start from the beginning for that to work? Any ideas?

NM: I hit reset and it works.

I am playing on a mac and am working the puzzle on M. Fate's caravan door. The starry night scene on the right will not change to an eye. I have reset the puzzle several times. Did it in the order of the strategy guide. did it in different orders. I really don't want to skip. What should I do?

My game continually freezes at the ship's puzzle in the black diary. I can play the rest of the game but not that page. I've replayed a second time and STILL, it freezes!
Next time, I wait for the store release. No matter how good the game, this kind of crap makes it worthless to me.

Car with Art HO scene in toolbox

[Post New]by kikae1 on Dec 7, 13 11:25 PM
Ok...I am in the car with Art doing the HO scene in the broken tool box (or whatever the wooden box was). I did all of the objects except the last one that needs you to unlock the different shaped bolts. I can not pick up or even see the last tool. I use the hint and it highlights where is should be but I have no change in curser and I see a lot of stuff but not what it is telling me should be there. Help please. I have rebooted and tried again to no avail.

just like the Christmas story by elephant games that just came out, both of these games are not playable for the general gamer. notice all the tech problems! what is going on with elephant and BFG???????

all other games seem to be working ok. if anything there are minor problems. but MCF, Madame Fate???? too many glitches to name! why is this and why are we the public gaming community still putting up with these problems. they should has been resolved before the games were open to the gaming community. I am tired of all the BS that surrounds these 2 games in particular! why not come out and state that something is amiss and will be taken care of so that the rest of us can participate in playing the games and willingly pay for the chance! why the rest of game developers are doing the right thing ie EIPIX, BLUE TEA, ****, ETC.,
THEY seem to bring forward a good game and we can all play without major tech problems. where are the rest of the gaming community to address these issues??? I can not believe that there are a lot of you that have not participated, and are just waiting for results??? come on and speak to these issues!!!!

Hi all,
I am having an issue with collecting the cards... I have all but 1 Spolier Alert!..... the raven from the black diary. I have clicked on it and it won't do anything, I've even waited a few minutes to see if it will change to click on it then but it doesn't change at all. I am not sure if I am missing something or if this is another glitch in the game. I've played through 3 times so far and each time it won't do anything. Any help will be much appreciated!

. I totally agree with you more people should speak up . After all we keep them in business and your right other developers seem to fix glitches before the game release.

I have downloaded this game twice. It gives me an error that it must shut down. Then it sort of locks up the computer, I get an hourglass attached to the cursor and nothig works. I right click on the taskbar and close the game then turn off the send message to Microsoft. I am using Windows XP.

EASY FIX FOR FREEZING BOMB
Control Alt Delete and restart. Go to hint and press restart tab with the arrows and press skip.

I've collected all 4 black candles and put them in the holders ready to light but the lighter in my inventory will not activate.

Hi,
I am playing in the Secret Room section of the Collector's Edition.

Marlena wants 4 shells to give up her key... but for the one hidden object scene, it wouldn't let me click on the skull (I even used a hint to make absolute sure I was clicking in the right spot).

When I exited that HO scene and re-entered, there were NO objects listed to find at the bottom.

When I completely exited the game and restarted it, that entire scene was not available to me anymore, but I am still missing the needed shell.

It looks like my game is corrupt and I can't go on. Is there a fix for this?

I started again under a new profile, got to the same point and the game freezes. Will not acknowledge the last fuse placement and freezes.

any answers for this?

This game is sure buggy...I froze up at the sixth scarab, started new game, now I am at the same place as the above. Game is just frozen. Is there going to be any fixes for this game??? Hello Hello is anybody listening??
