Sound problem

[Post New]by BadWhippet on Dec 17, 08 6:11 AM
This is a brilliant time-management game and I'm having a lot of fun with it. Reminds me of the same fun and challenge of the Build-A-Lot series - wonderful!

Oh, but I'm also having a huge technical problem with it too. In later levels, after playing for ten minutes or so, the sound goes haywire. Sounds start looping over and over and OVER. It might just be a car horn, or clapping, or it might be more aggravating like the guy who says "Hey, how's it going?", "Hey, how's it going?", "Hey, how's it going?" over and again - aargh!!!! The only solution is either to turn the sound off completely or quit right out of the game and restart (losing all progress in that level) - only for it to start happening again after a few minutes.

I have a decent PC (Dual Core E8500, 4GB RAM etc) with up to date drivers (running Vista), and this is the first time I've ever encountered problems with a Big Fish game. Can anyone advise on how I can sort this out? It's really marring what is otherwise a super game.

How do I train the employees to work on the convertible? I have all the employees
in the office and I have over $400,000 and over 5000 repair units.

I have trouble getting my mouse to go down to the lower 1/4 of the screen. I can't click on the forward button to proceed thru the story (but can hit return), but am completely unable to click the employee tab and hire more employees. What's the problem?

I'm having the same problem as BadWhippet, but I have yet another that is beyond annoying and I'm wondering if it's a bug. I've "finished" the game and completed all levels in "Prime Time" and it tells me the final special level is unlocked, but then as soon as I am able to click on it, it tells me it's locked again and I can't seem to do anything to access it. I'm about to contact Live Support I'm so frustrated but I thought I'd try the forums first. Looks like no one else has posted this issue yet but I'm hoping someone can give me some advice!

I seem to be having technical problems as well. The game loads fine. I have my profile. I go to play the game and see the story intro, click Next > Next > Play and the scene loads with the overlay of the goals for the day, but I can't click continue. It does the mouse-over effect when I hover over the Continue button, but it doesn't do anything when I click it. I can't get back from this point and the only thing I can do is Alt-F4 to kill the game. Any ideas for how to actually get to the game?

Great game. I'm in the Hollywood level - Level 5 - I have met the goal of the sports cars and cabaros, but they don't total up to the $200,000 rent total. How do I fix this?

Just had to post to say this game is super fun, and I really enjoy it! Just finished the police level... Had to run it in windowed mode though, because full screen gives me really bad flickering.

I, too, am enjoying this game as much as the build-a-lot series - just different enough to keep my interest. Will keep tuned to the issues stated above.

Dittos to the good reviews of this game and also to the technical issues. I downloaded and played without incident on a secondary computer, then downloaded on my primary one, where it causes the pc to crash when it's started. I did all the usual stuff and sent an inquiry to customer support with a copy of the dxdiag report. The automated acknowledgement stated that they are behind because of bad weather. Where is BFG based??

Hi does anyone know how to build the Beach Buggy I have acquired more than enough employees and spare parts, but all it does is bring up the progress bar and then doesn't do anything? What car should I use and must it be fully processed with all the trimings? Without finishing this level I cann't play the last Prime Time Level that I unlocked. Any suggestions please.

Remember vehicles with stars have an increased value. You need to have atleast 2 cars on the lot with stars to meet 200.000 dollar rent

If you're having trouble getting enough cars with stars, it also works to have an extra sports car, moving one of the cabrios to a sales slot and adding the sports car to the lot at the end. Don't sell the cabrio, though!

I am having the same problem, I even tried starting over with a different name, I completed everything in Prime Time, it says the bonus level is unlocked and does the cute little graphic but when I try to click the cup, it says that it's locked.
