I downloaded the new version and still can't see the top, right side or bottom of screen. It played 1 time and when I went on later it wouldn't come on again. No full screen.

There are several scenes in the game where switches/buttons are available, but don't work until you've repaired the electrical power. This scene is one of them.

You will need to complete both zoom scenes and repair the power before any of the switches, including the SKIP button, will work.

Once you have the power on, the game requires you to make a few moves in the puzzle (you can just push the arrow keys over and over).

Eventually the SKIP button will light up, and then you can press it to skip the rest of the puzzle and continue.

Good luck!

Is this the electrical power where you have to put gas in the machine? I spent an hour and couldn't find any gas in the scene, never mind fixing the broken wires.

I would like this game but not until it works better.

shorenuf, thanks for asking. It is the bar scene, just exactly as others having problems here were describing. wrench disappears and if you put the tap thing back on the first keg it gets stuck there and you can't do anythingl. I don't normally check a walkthrough before a scene, I guess I will have to start again under a new name and check it for the bar scene. But I don't understand why the MAC platform is not also being fixed.

In Chapter 17: The Green Lettered Ring is not following the sequence as it shows to. I have even done the redownload and it still has not corrected that sequence. My journal shows exactly the same sequence as the walk through. I have opened and closed so many time now as well as deleted the game and redownloaded to see if the new version corrected it, but it did not. Now what?????

OK folks I just learned you can restart the whole scene you are having trouble with and it just probably will correct the problem you are having. Exit to main minue and the it says Restart at beginning of the scene.
I just did and am going to see what happens now. Good luck and happy gaming.

It's a different chapter, but remember that any time you get stuck you can check the Blog Walkthrough. We have step by step instructions for each chapter, plus marked screenshots. If it's not a a glitch, it should help you get unstuck and move forward quickly. If it IS a glitch, you should be able to confirm that it is, also quickly.

To get to the Blog Walkthrough, click on the Try this Game link at the top of this page, then click on the link to the Blog Walkthrough.

Good luck!

Ah -- I got through that scene -- still had the wrench to move the tap, had no problem. It is so frustrating when only some of us can play a game. I have experienced that with other games, so I know how you feel. What is different about this time is the developer is willing to explore the cause of the conflict and not just blame it on "your Mac."

I have paid for this game and have terrible shaking and jumping in the scenes. Also I am stuck in the bowling alley with no way out. Very disappointed, hope this can be fixed real soon.

If you don't intend to provide a viable product, then refund my money! And PLEASE stop gibbering about how wonderful it is that a rep putatively from Mutant Arcade is taking an interest in this pathetic hose-up - ANYBODY can sign on saying they're from ANYWHERE!


Yes, it was just a coincidence that all those patches were put in place immediately after that fake developer showed up.

Shame seems like it is a good game.




I also still have this problem, the picture is about 8x10 in the middle of my screen, to small to work the **** scenes.

I downloaded the new version. Is there any way I can remove OpenAl? Thanks

Yes!! After having the same problem in the bar scene (lost wrench , was stuck, frustrated!!) I tried this solution. I simply went to the Upgrade option and it downloaded the corrected version, I didn't even have to Uninstall or Reinstall and when I went back to open up the game, it started me right back to the same place I was ( in the bar) and there was a Restart Level button, I clicked it and everything went fine after that !
There is even a Skip button for minigames.
Great update! Fixed all the problems for me. I highly recommend this step for anyone else who has the same problems!
Thanks again !

 

Stuck at Bowling Alley

[Post New]by maddiesedai on Jul 8, 10 8:23 PM
This game looks great and feels like something I would really like to play... but it is absolutely the buggiest game I've seen so far from Big Fish.

First, I noticed that much of the background motion and intro sequences are VERY fast... so fast I couldn't read the intro dialogue and background objects with motion (like the leaves on the trees behind the fountain) are obviously moving way too fast. Text that pops out at the top of the screen when you mouse over certain areas would pop back so fast it would take 2 or 3 times for me to read it. The screen showing all the areas jiggles and moves.

Still, it was marginally playable... until I finished the bowling alley area. Got the arrogant prince's dialogue and then I am just left at the alley with no way of leaving to get to the basement. Checked the walk-through and that was no help - it showed all the steps I did to finish the alley and then went right into where to find stuff in the basement. Checked the in-game book and it talks about a "tunnel up ahead". Tried clicking everywhere in the alley to see if there was a spot I was supposed to click on to get to the basement and nothing worked.

If there is some sort of "trick" to getting from the bowling alley to the basement, please put it in the walkthrough. If not, then fix the bug. I already checked for updates, game manager says there are none available.

Please help!

Those who are still having trouble even with the July 7 update are probably best off checking with Tech Support by cilcking on the green envelope in the right column. They should be able to help one way or another.

I wish I could help more, but I'm not a techie person.

Ditto here. Quite irritating.

I downloaded the "new version" and it still doesn't work. It keeps shrinking back down to the toolbar. I can't get it to stay open. I give up.
