I think the problem lies with Mumbo Jumbo. I have another game by Mumbo Jumbo and it did the same thing. Never could figure out what the problem was. I just tried playing the game and got that same message.

Nicmus Contact Customer Service and tell them your problem. If it can't be fixed they give you a coupon code to get another game.

I didn't get any 'access violation' message. I just totally froze my computer and I had to shut down and unplug everything.

My computer is only two months old so will not by wasting any money on this.

I have simply made the decision now that if there is a report of an error or I get one I won't buy and maybe if we all did that then the makers of these games would take the time to get it right rather than have all these errors, on almost every game lately.

Tried two other games and they are full screen.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.


This is my problem too. And it happens with too many games. I bought myself a new laptop with widescreen so that I could enjoy my games better. HAH! What a joke. I have to adjust pixels all the time and it is very annoying that you don't know if it will open big small or medium until you get into the game.
BOO!

This game is a being a pain...I finally got full screen, quit. Came back to it later and small screen again.

I reset this game about 7 times last night. So annoying. It's the only SS game I've liked but at this stage I'm losing patience.

I purchased this game yesterday and never had a problem with it then. But started playing it this pm and it locked up on me. It won't even let me get into the game to start playing again this pm. I've uninstalled & reinstalled, but it's still the same thing. I've never had a problem with these games before. Please help...

Hi - I skipped the block puzzle and do not have the cross to put in the middle. I can't seem to go back or forward. What can I do to fix this?

The only issue I have with this game is the extremely small screen. I have a wide laptop screen which I specifically purchased to be able to see my games better. Hah...joke is on me. I love my laptop and when the game fits, it is awesome. Can only play this game for a few moments before the eye strain kicks in.

Access violation at the Labyrinth scene. It freezes the computer and have to shut everything down. Will not let the game continue. I hope for a fix soon as I really like the Sam Swift games. Thank you.

I'm not getting access violation, just super slow draggy game play. This has never happened with the samantha swift games before. They aren't very graphically challenging so it should't happen.

Seems to be a problem lately with bugs and slow game play. Won't buy until game update comes out hopefully soon.

Continued game fine until I was about to go into the Labyrinth.

SPOILER ALERT!

I put the crystal ball into the slot in the clowns mouth but the game froze again. Pressed Control+Escape to get back to desk top and there was a window which read as follows.

Panic error in file ".\Platform\Win32\Win32Texture.cpp". line178: failed to create texture not enough memory

I think this notice is the same one which appeared earlier when the game first froze. Last time I managed to start it again from the point I'd finished and hopefully will do so again. Maybe I'm just in too much of a hurry and am trying to get to the next section and am clicking before it's ready.
Will try again and hopefully will be able to complete the game.



EDIT

Managed to get back into game and completed it. Quit easily but when I got back to the games master there was am error message which read:

Error: Access violation at 0x7C90E5AA (tried to write 0x00030FB0) Program terminated

As I had finished the game I just took a note to ask see if this was the error notice which others had recieved.

Fig Puzzle:

On the fig puzzle, I got all 18 figs. When I go to the puzzle, it only shows 15 figs. When I start working the puzzle, it says that I do not have enough figs. If I pick up a fig, the game may throw it away and decrease the count.

I would skip the puzzle, but there does not appear to be any way to skip it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I agree with you about the Mumbo Jumbo thing. I ALWAYS have trouble with their games, and my system is completely updated, I don't have any viruses or any of that other stuff, and my system meets the requirements, yet I can't even get into the game. It's a shame, too, because I really like the Samantha Swift games, but if I can't play it in demo (and I ALWAYS check games in demo first in case I have a problem), then why bother buying it, right?

Has BF figured this out? I have uninstalled and installed three times and still get the error message.
