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 savvy 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.

*Please reserve this thread for tech issues only. If you are seeking game play assistance (i.e. hints and tips), the best thing to do is to start a new thread in the game's Forum by clicking on 'Create New Discussion.'

I had no trouble with the trial download, but now I have purchased it is stuck at 13%. I've tried all the usual 'slow download' tricks, closed game manager and re-opened, paused and un-paused. I know that the long downloads were a problem before the new Game Manager but I somehow hoped this would solve it.

BIG troubles with the trial download: I am downloading for one and a half hours now and just 35 % are done... I don't know if it has to do with this monster of a new game manager but it's more than annoying. Tried all the tricks mentioned before, nothing works. Anyone who can help?

My download was stuck on 93%. Usually if a dl gets stuck, and that is rare, I just hit 'pause' and then hit it again and it continues quickly. But not this morning...I put my tin foil hat on before I started posting about the new gm...have the feeling it didn't work...and I am not LOLling over this one. Bad, bad feelings about this whole scenario. Mudrock is a robot, Picman is lost in outer space, and the mods have turned into hall monitors with an attitude.

My downloading is exactly the same as everyone else on here, the trial downloaded fast and perfect, I've bought the full game and it's stuck on 13%, then I uninstall it and usually get another 1% out of the download, at the moment I've given up.

the new Games Manager comes up and a pretty message: Hope you enjoyed your trial and want to buy the full version. This without even entering my name.
What's up?

Trial D/L stuck at 21%. I paused and restarted but no movement so cancelled the D/L. Will try again later - maybe.

Must say. I HATE that new game manager. AWFUL. TOO BIG. Why inflict it on me, the other one worked perfectly well and was just a nice size. BFG - take the damn thing back and give me my old one. QUIETLY FUMING HERE.


Second attempt and it D/L okay, no problem. Played some of the trial, seems very dark to me so far. Will persevere as it looks a good game.

I want the old one back too. This huge INYOURFACE one just doesn't cut it with me. Strange, but of all the complaints lately, I can't recall any about the GM. So what the heck is going on? Some new kid on the block who thinks that all of us grannies need bigger? Well it sure isn't better. I cannot even begin to count the number of games that I have bought here,...more than any other portal, for sure. but I can tell you I don't like what is going on here, and I am over my hog addiction. I still like to play, yeah, but I would rather give my dollars to the devs than to a company that doesn't appear to give a flip anymore. I am going to play the trial, if it ever finishes downloading...but think I will hang on to my bucks. BF has gone too far with this change, and I just don't think I can live with it...oh, I could, but I don't want to, and it is my choice, isn't it.

Been out, come back and it's at 30% ( that's 14% in 47 minutes).

I've been waitng for TWO hours and stuck at 62%! This seems to be an ongoing problem of late. Games used to whizz in, but now I expect it to take til the next millennium. And when they are slow to D/L they usually don't run properly.
Not sure I like the huge new hub, but hoped it would improve D/L speeds. If anything even slower now :-(( And no longer can see at what speed the kbs are coming in, or if it's just stuck.
With all the game glitches and slow D/L speeds my usual quick hour trial whilst drinking morning coffee is a thing of the past. Gaming should be fun, but lately it's become stressful.
I'm thinking of giving it up as it's anything but enjoyable lately!
