To get the newest version you'll just need to uninstall and reinstall the game. Note: Players who experienced these issues will need to create a new profile and start over for these updates to take effect. We apologize for any inconvenience.

This does not fix the problem of the debug report being displayed at the beginning of the game. This does not alow you to play the game.

Hi disprin245 and phisherman,

If the game still isn't working after the update I'd write in to our Tech Support team and one of our reps would be happy to help you with your purchase or look into this further for you.

Hope that helps!

Does it also take care of the problem of the inability to return to a scene to get something you didn't get the first time in the scene? ie. I've found Houdini on the floor of the train cabin. I need the "respirator" in order to continue. I have the gas mask but neglected to get the oxygen tank. I cannot go back to the baggage car to get the oxygen tank.

Bummers! ANOTHER game I have to start over!

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the newest version of the game after having "the Mr. Doyle progression block" and was excited to see Mr. Doyle at the door. I entered the house but within minutes can no longer progress because the hidden object scene at the desk is non existent. So I cannot get the lantern to take to the bog. I looked at the walkthrough, tried the hint button, walked out and into the house, restarted the computer, etc. but no luck. After 3 hours of replaying the game up to Mr. Doyle, I am halted once again and cannot finish the game. Can you provide a save game for this location? This is why more than one saved game would be a welcome addition to HOG's. Most adventure games have had a great save game system for years. Too bad HOG's don't.

Hy fishies, who still have problems with Mr. Doyle:
had a lot of trouble to make Mr. Doyle appear, but finally made it. Uninstalled, reinstalled, Mr Doyle did not appear! Tried with another browser, and was able to finish the game. Perhaps this can help?
Downloaded with internet explorer and switched to firefox.

Well, I finally played through the new version with a new profile and while I was only kicked out of the game once, rather than the 3 or 4 times with the original version, the once was the same, near the end of the game scene, (cutting the lady in half), I received a debug whatever, and have pretty much given up. Too bad, because even given the totally unrealistic plot, still it's a very good game. And I'd collected enough clovers to unlock the unlimited HOS too. I don't even want to uninstall and reinstall -- again. boo hoo.

Well, I just purchased this game 2 days ago...and am stuck like others with 'NO Arthur Ford' to follow through door in upstairs room..no book..and now, locked out of house.

So my question is:

Did I purchase the 'old' version??? I would think whatever 'fixes' had been made should apply to the version I purchased 2 days ago..correct?

Very frustrating to purchase games that you cannot complete. AND, games that have had 'fixes' applied...and yet, as a new purchaser 20 days down the road from supposed 'fix'....gets the 'same old game'?? HUH?????

Hello!

I bought this game after the 2/6/2012 UPDATE, on 2/11/2012.

Having also purchased other games, I just got to the Mr.Doyle progression block.
Following the suggested steps, I have deleted & re-installed Houdini Delux and it took me directly back where I left off.
Unfortunately, there is no Mr. Doyle by the front door to give the brand to, and the hint button keeps indicating I should do so.

I've also posted this comment in the Tech Issues thread...
All suggestions welcome!

Now what should I do?
Thanks,
Karen

Ditto to She_Devil edc...was purchased after the "fix"...had no problems with Doyle, but can't get back into the house...and the SG/Hint both tell me that is where I need to be, but I get a bubble telling me I'm done there and nothing else to do...sent a Dr Felix to CS, not hopefull as some people have tried to start new game and still got stuck in the same spot...I'm 3/4 through the game, as much as I like it I am NOT going to start over AGAIN!!

I got stuck with the book glitch then locked out of the house. Not sure when I purchased the game so it might have been the old version. I asked for my money back and got no reply - so I have stopped buying games. Houdini was a great game but being stuck so near the end just not acceptable. I doubt I will want to play through the whole thing again any time soon. Now if I could get back into the game at the point of the glitch that might be different.
