Game locking up

[Post New]by Dawspaws on Dec 25, 08 9:12 AM
It keeps locking up during the explanation part of the game. The only way to unlock it is by totally shutting down my computer (which I don't like to do). Then when I turn it back on the icons are enormous and I have to go to my settings to get back to what I had before. This has happened a few times and I am really getting upset and am ready to uninstall. Is anyone else out there having the same problem and is there any solution to solving it? I really don't like to uninstall games when I haven't even finished them. It's just a waste of money.

I had the same problem. I was able to bypass it without shutting down the computer. I am using WIN XP Pro and this is what worked for me. When it locks up, press CNTL-ALT-DEL. This will minimize the game and the window pops open that shows you that the game ins "running". Close that window. Maximize the game and the "Return to Game" button will now work.

Too much trouble with this though, so I deleted without buying. Maybe there will be a "fixed" version offered for this game soon. it may work OK with Vista or Mac or something. At least one person had no problems with the game.

I agree, too much trouble during a trial-I want to play it, not fight with it. Too bad, I think I would have bought it otherwise

My game also locked up during the lengthy travel dialogue sections.

I found that if I ALT+TAB (for windows pcs) to another application (eg my Firefox browser, or e-mail client), then went back to my game it was working again (selected game from the task bar at the bottom of the screen) . This saves you closing the game or shutting down so an improvement but still nuisance for sure.
