Post any Hanging Gardens of Babylon technical issues here only

Well, this demo trial was an EXTREMELY short one, for me. The game shows a short introductory cutscene, explaining about the history of the Babylonian Hanging Gardens. The first time it showed this "cutscene" to me, it was very informative. Then, it somehow "relooped itself" into playing the exact same "cutscene" again, only this time it was "flashing" the scene, really rapidly - so fast and bright, that if I had had a seizure disorder, it might have triggered a seizure!

When it finally got to the place where you can sign in your name, I did so. However, when I attempted to click on the "Options", "Exit", or "Play" sections, they kept flickering so fast, that my cursor got completely lost in the fray. Thus, I ended up having to "soft boot" my computer, to get the game to shutdown. Needless to say, I won't be buying this game!

Same here Cherb. Personally I think this game isn't fit for my Windows 7 system. I couldn't even click on the door on the left, so I stopped right there and then.

No buy here either.

This is sort of like "couldn't click on the snake in another game. I had a map and a lock to find and the hint indicated (I think the map) the location and I clicked 20 times (Which cost me $200) and nothing happened.

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:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen
Access Violation
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.'

Error AccessViolation at 0x10161A6E (tried to read from 0x00000000) program terminated. This message shows up each time I exit the game. Looks like a pass for me

Opening graphic of the hanging gardens was stunning, the text was informative. I was able to type in my name although the screen continuously flashed, but couldn't find my mouse pointer and had to hit enter. Image continued to flash, no mouse pointer. If this is a compatability problem, certainly no buy for me. A shame because it looked so promising.

Same problem here, although it was fine until I entered my name then the flashing began and no mouse. Too bad, it looked pretty to me.

I didn't have any flashing issues though. However, in the starting scene, is the V of birds suppoused to be flying backwards? They just look like they're flying backwards to me. I know it could be an inverted V, but birds don't usually do that.

I had absolutely the same problem. If anyone knows a fix, I hope it gets posted.

Couldn't play

[Post New]by distantsmoke on Sep 27, 11 9:28 AM
I downloaded the trial version to see if I would like it. When I started the game, the screen flickered and the cursor was nowhere to be seen. I had to control alt delete to stop it. Couldn't play at all.

When I got to the first room to look for the hidden objects I was told to find a necklace. I saw four. But when I clicked on any of them I got points deducted.

this game SUCKS too!!! the game went to the second room with 2 doors and no key to be found and no dagger to open either doors. I will never buy a game without playing it first. and this one was NO BUY!!! the 1 hour time frame wouldn't be nearly longgggggggggggg enough to figure out how to proceed through the 2 doors. or maybe that is the point---there is no point to the game---or maybe the trial is just SUCKING!!! anyway NO BUY and NO RECOMMEND!!! RUN AWAY FASTTTTTTTT!!!
