Same problem, can't get to the menu and have no sound. Has anyone tried control-alt-delete already who can report about whether you lost your progress? I don't really want to stay up all night to finish the game, especially with no sound...but I don't want to lose my progress either!

Okay, I was too impatient to wait for an answer, lol--I shut the program down using control + alt + delete and restarted it, and it DID remember where I was. So if you get the menu glitch there's at least a chance you won't lose your progress and can get your sound back...still pretty annoying, though!

i have had zero problems so far and i am sure I'm at the end. Suddenly whenever I pick something up it freezes on the miniscreen of the item. The music is still going and background stuff is still moving, but the miniscreen won't close.

If you can't acces the menu (or back-button) try hitting Alt-Tab. Hold the Alt and hit the Tab and It will take you through the various windows you might have open on your desktop and, more importantly, prompt a screen ingame asking you what you would like to do: Resume, Options or Exit. Exit the game and it will save your progress. Worked for me. Always does, actually....

I downloaded the trial and it got stuck on "activating". I closed the game manager thinking it just stalled; when I re-opened it (right away) it said, "trial expired". I've downloaded and played more games than I can count and have never had this happen. Any suggestions?

Well, I had a problem I've never had before esolution Error, failed to access. And it kept TRYING, poor thing! I finally had to control-alt-delete out. I'm trying what others have tried; uninstall and reinstall. Hope it works; I bought the thing (without trying it...idiot me).

No luck with unloading/reloading or turning my computer off/on. My screen resolution is actually HIGHER than BF's recommendations, though this says it has "failed to reset my screen resolution to 1024 x 768." E mail to customer service. Hope that they can help me fix this. Good luck to the other Fishies!

SPOILER! Task list - Find all five mirrors

[Post New]by Avalon2 on Jul 31, 10 4:00 AM
This task is still in the task list and I am in the last chapter. All five mirrors are in the graveyard and placed correctly. The game continued at that point - use the shovel, clean the jacket, let him have some alone time, etc.

Now the game won't let me continue to the end of the last chapter. The three have already left the island. Hint continues to tell me to find the mirrors and solve the mirror puzzle before I can solve any more puzzles.

Do I need to delete the game, reinstall and start it again with a different profile?

Same here. I'm on the demo so wont be able to reinstall. I'm getting a little weary with regard to all the tech issues of late.

Played the trial game and it was ok. BUT when I bought the game, the problem came with it. Sorry to say this, but lately BFG got a lot of technical problems with their games and it's getting very frustrating . Anyway, I could not play in full screen, and a message keeps popping up saying...

"failed to set resolution to 1024x768. Error:-1"

Where do I set this, and this has never happen to any other games that I've played and bought except this game and Echoes of the Past: The Castle of Shadows Collector's Edition.

Pls HELP!!!
