So I am wondering what the solution is for me on this game. I'm not sure because out of the many games I've bought here, I've never had a problem where I couldn't play the game.

Do I just sit it out and wait for BFG to give an update, or do I conclude that I will not be able to play this game and ask for a credit?

I don't see my issue here yet. I have done the hidden object games in the upper left hall, but was not given the plate that I need to go on. I need the code off the plate to get into the door at the back of the hall, Do I need to restart from the beginning??

I just managed to play the entire game start to finish!

Having given up on The Black Cat until a fix is provided by BFG, I downloaded a previous game from the same developers in the same series, Murders in the Rue Morgue. At first I had the same issue - corrupted save file - and it kicked me out after only a few minutes play. But when I reloaded it and tried again, I was able to play it fine from then on and completed the entire game with no further issues.

So then I thought to go back and try The Black Cat again. Not one hiccup! Perhaps downloading a similar program from the same designers over wrote the corrupted file and corrected the problem? I can't say for sure but it's worth a try. Worst case, you get another game to play. And if you already own that one, try downloading it again. Who knows, it might work.

Good luck everyone! I won't spoil it by telling you how the game ends... Mrrow!

For some reason, I was able to put the spare boiler parts on the boiler way before I should have. Now that I'm ready to move forward, I can't because the wheel is connected but the blue rod came off and will not reattach. How do I fix this to continue the game?

Thanx for the suggestion to uninstall Murders in Rue Morgue and reinstall - however unfortunately it didn't help my problems with the Black Cat. Guess I'll have to wait for a fix. **** Hum again!

The saw will not cut the boards that are nailed across the door. I have tried moving the saw back and forth everywhere on the boards but nothing happens. I can see
some straight vertical line on the boards but still no cutting when I move the saw.
Is there some trick or method I am not getting here.

I'm having the same issue; I almost completed the game and it froze up. When I got it restarted, I had the corrupt save game file message. I'd be ok with restarting from the middle, but not the beginning. Too many hours invested to want to do it again! Frankly, am thinking of canceling my membership......

I am also having the problem with the boiler wheel and the connecting rod. It keeps saying to connect the wheel. The wheel is already there. What do I do now,

See that green button that turns into the hand when you go over it? It moves!! Move it to the center of the wheel.

I really like this game but has anyone actually managed to finish it? I've been thrown out several times and twice I had to start over because of the "corrupted save file". Now it did it again but since I think I was almost near the end, I haven't the heart to do it all again from the beginning. I think I'll retire the game for a year and then come back to it. Maybe by then there will be a fix.
very disappointed!!

Add me to the list of people who have the game crash. I don't even get to see any of the game. Trial still full- click on it and the "game has stopped working" comes up and then play again you have 60 minutes left.Checked the help page and all devices and drivers are up to date. Is BFG just rushing to get games out? Phantom works great but not Poe, what a shame very disappointed BFG.
