I finished the game. I had to uninstall and then reinstall it. Either this corrected what was wrong the first time or when I reinstalled it they had put a fix in it. Either way I finally finished the game. Really enjoyed the game. Graphics were great and although a lot of jumping around it was fun.

Hi there,
Well I finally managed to complete this game after also having been frozen out by starting over with a new profile, though I have to admit that I exited the game at regular intervals after I reached the stage across the lily pads which threw me out the first time. The only thing I did differently otherwise was to keep all of the crystal flowers (except for the first one) in my inventory until I had them all.
I know this is not the desired solution, but maybe this will work for others of you who have had the same experience.
Cheers

Yes, I did. My post quoting the BF rep is on page 8 of this thread.

Hi everyone,

Please write in to Tech Support so we can take note of the trouble you're having and if possible please include a Dr. Felix Diagnostics Report together with your request to help us figure out why this is happening.

Just to let you know, they can also offer assistance in regards to refunds or replacements.

I have been playing it from the program files by right clicking on the game icon and then opening the files .Go down the list to the purple flower icon right click again,run as administrator and play. Make sure to begin as a new player. I bypassed the game manager ( did this whenever I wanted to play) but this way I was able to start where I left off and I finished the game. I still cannot play the bonus. It's a great game I wish BFG would do something to fix this. I hope this helps someone.


I tried this and got past the place it crashed before. Carried on for a long time afterwards too, so I was thinking 'at last I can rescue everyone!' Got the first neutraliser, had to trudge back to beyond the bridge to place it (seems as though you have to do this every time, which is so not fun). Got as far as placing the second neutraliser when the game crashed again Went back in using your suggestion again and guess what?? Back to the beginning again

I am not playing this through again for the 3rd time, even if a fix is available. Sick to death of it now.

I played great up until Chapter 3. Then it kicked me out and the message I got was "NaturalThreat.EXE is not working". I did the uninstall and installed all over again. Same thing happened. Now when I hit PLAY I get to a screen but when I try to exit that screen I get kicked out. So it seems to be getting worse. Was really enjoying the game. Contacted the LiveChat, so we will see if a remake is in the works. Guess that is up to Developer. Oh well, maybe Thursday will bring us a good one!

Are they working on a fix for this game? I was really enjoying it until I got kicked out. Had two "dump" files dumped on my desktop. Plus I noticed the game manager closed itself down before the game started. Never had that happen before. I refuse to start this game over until there's a fix. Why waste my time if it's only going to kick me out again.

I sent a Dr Felix report abot this game plus another and got a really nice tech.I could get a full refund or wait for a fix. I love the games so am going to wait and check into the forum to see when it will be.Hope it's soon, as don't want to buy anymore as the last couple of games i,ve had problems with.Ps. I started having trouble when the game manager changed, nothing before that. I understand there are so many different type of computers that there will be gliches.BUT WHY MINE!!!!! Waiting in anticipation.

Game has frozen and crashed three times, each time I am forced to start over from the beginning. I am wondering if it is possible to finish this game.

Even if they do fix it, I'm almost sure you'll have to play it again from the beginning...yet again. And then there's the matter of the Extra content that's permanently chained locked. Talk about a major screw-up. Yeesh.

Same problems here - Game freeze - Task Manager to get out, then ERROR don't worry you can restart from last action. Please send dump-callstack.dmp from desktop to developers. Thread 1 - Going back to re-launching game and although the menu loads up... press Play and game freezes - Task Manager to get out... ditto...

Have started from beginning and same thing again.

I was about to buy and then thought I would carry on with my trial - got 'dump files' and 'dump logs' - computer froze I had, had to reboot - not even purchased. It is very rarely that I have any problems with big fish games

Won't buy until sorted.
