I'm playing the Mac version. I'm in the magician's room and have done the candle puzzle with the charged sphere, but i cannot go any further. The magician says I can find another part of the medallion (I have 1 part) in "there". Where is "there"? I've clicked on everything. I consulted the walkthrough and it says to pick up the skull and break the mirror. BUT I cannot pick up the skull. I've clicked on every square inch of the screen and NOTHING!! Is this a bug or what? I am seriously stuck.

EDIT: Two things: First, put the rose in the statue's open hand. Then all is good. She will trade for the second part of the medallion.

MORE REGARDING SOUND ISSUE: It seems to happen when you are in a hidden object screen and accidentally click when the cursor has changed to "leave this place". If you click back too quickly all sound is lost.

I use an iMac 10.6.7 intel, at first there were lags, that resolved itself but I can't seem to keep the music or sound effects to continue from scene to scene. If I exit and quit when I return there will be music and sound fx but if I go from one scene to another at the page change the sound will stop. Is there a fix for this?? It's kind of a bummer to keep exiting and starting again to have sound.

I accidently put the lever on the left instead of the right and it won't let me take it off to put it on the right thing. The things are used to open the bridge to the castle. Help

Same here. No response from the cryptex (BTW, that should be "cryptex" not "crypt")

My environment for troubleshooting: OS=WinXPx64, NVidia GeForce 8500, DirectX is up to date, all patches applied. Game was downloaded and installed 4/23/11, so presumably is fully up to date.

The cryptex initial settings are I II III IV (1, 2, 3, 4).
Write down your numbers and translate them into Roman numerals. Once they're in your journal, don't go back as they will change.

I'm supposed to find a hidden object game in the castle under the hole in the ceiling? I can't find it and therefore, I don't have the screwdriver to give to the physicist. What's up with that?

I got out of the dream but I had to exit, not good.
Learned something today this Alt-tab works to minimize, thank you. Never to old to learn something new

Seems like a great game but I do get stuck in those dreams he has, only way to get out is to exit.

I'm using a Power Mac 10.4.11. When I get to the lockers and insert the second half heart the game allows me to proceed thru the first sequence of objects but after placing them I should be able to slide the last panel over revealing a dragon. Despite using the control click maneuver, which is the mac version of right click, the game will not allow me to make any further moves or advance in the game. It's not frozen, I just can't slide that panel over or bypass that step. Suggestions?

Just to let you know: i'm on an intel Mac
OS 10.6.8
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

and all throughout the game the sound faded out after 10-15 min of play; FASTER if I clicked too exuberantly during the **** scenes, but slowing down did not eliminate the problem.

loved the game, but having to exit and re-enter every 10 or so minutes (or else play silently) really ruined the atmosphere and continuity of the game for me.

I'm playing on a Power Mac OSX 10.4.11
The game will not allow me to enter my name as a player. The keyboard does not respond when I try to type anything. I can enter the game once as Player but an hour into the game the game crashed and I cannot go back in under a new name to start over again.
I've had many BFG games and a few Vogat games but this is the first time I've had this problem.
I.ve done all the usual troubleshooting steps; uninstall, reinstall, uninstall again after trashing global and local exe.plist files. I've even done Find searches looking for all stray files and emptying the trash before powering down, then powering back up and then reinstalling the game. After all that failed I went through the whole process with the GM. No luck!
As if that were not enough, when I get to the wall puzzle in the hall of the mansion and place my two halves of the heart in the appropriate slots, the game allows me to slide the blocks around for only a few attempts before decieding I cannot move them in any further directions.
I read through what I thought were the appropriate threads to see if this is a common problem but found no matching complaints.
Can anyone help me? [i]Please[/i]

The sound on this game keeps fading out after it runs for about 10 minutes. If I exit the game and restart it then the sound is back for another 10 minutes or so before it goes out again. I've read that other people have had this problem too. Is there a permanent fix for this sound issue? I'm running the game on a MAC OSX 10.6.8, intel core i7 2.8 ghz, 8gb memory. Thank you!

I'm having the sound issue, too. It seems to happen moving in and out of the HOG scenes. Often the music will go first and it will just be sound effects for a few minutes, then total silence. Exiting and restarting game restores all sound for a while, but as soon as I do a HOG scene, it starts to cut out again.

I'm running an Intel Core Duo MacBookPro with OS 10.6.8. Is there a fix?

Otherwise, terrific game.

 

sent back to beginning of game

I'm having trouble with the sound disappearing, too. Using Mac OS X 10.6.8, Snow Leopard. Very annoying. No music, and sound effects suddenly stop. I'm bummed because I just bought this game, having demoed it before. I don't remember that happening when I demoed it, but maybe that was why I didn't buy it.

I hope they issue a fix for this glitch. It seems like a lot of people on Intel Macs are having this problem, judging by this thread. (Then there are the ones who never made it to the thread to post, I'm sure.) It's a total buzz kill for the game to play it in silence.

Hope someone at BF is listening. I doubt this is something filing a help ticket would fix.
