Inventory suddenly disappeared after doing a h-o scene...
very disappointing--I'd really been enjoying the game.

(I've an up-to-date, fast PC (i-7), nvidia BFG 280 GPU, Win7U-64 bit, thus can't understand why I should suffer these issues on what's a normal & popular gaming system setup!)

No beads to give and no way to get them again. HELP!


You are not alone! I had the same problem. I was really liking this game too. I don't understand why the games coming out have so many problems lately. I'm not a happy camper!

The Intro video ran very slowly and jumpily. The custom cursor had to be turned off to play the cornfield escape and to eliminate the familiars. The game briefly froze everything on my desktop when I exited the demo (at 35 minutes because I had already gotten frustrated enough that I wanted out).

Like the subject matter but just too glitchy for me, and I wasn't really wild about the graphic style - a little too cartoonish, I prefer a cleaner, more realistic style, but that's just me. I'm sure many fishies will jump on this one.

I was 'cleaning up the Bishop house' and had just picked up all the things off the table. Now the inset 'puzzle window' has gone dark, outside the puzzle window has gone dark, the contents of the inventory have totally vanished, and the red X at the top right of the puzzle window is no longer clickable so I can go no further. (I have a screenshot if BFG need it).

This is clearly a poorly designed game that has not been tested properly before going on sale. Very disppointing, because I was enjoying it enough that I had bought it. What a waste of money...

The game took a really long time to close. It was so long that I tried going to my task manager to close it, but the game closing froze my computer. It finally closed, so I'm OK now, but I don't want to go through that again.

I hate seeing these notices. When this game cameout in CE, it completely crahed my computer and I had to go into backup too a day before to even get running. I uninstalled Salem and wrote BFG. Heard nothing. I thought that surely by now, with all the time (and complaints) the bugs would be fixed, because it looked like it was going to be a nice game, I'd try again. Now, jeepers, sounds like nothing has been resolved.

Having similar issues. i am about 3/4 through (2hrs 15 mins) and am tidying a witches house, game freezes and inventory dissappears. exit and restart and all seems ok until i try to click on anything, then it freezes again. seems like there are the same glitches all over the place in this game, hope theres a fiz soon, or i will be contacting BFG for a refund.

I was fully intending to purchase this game until I ran into a problem. I reached the part where the jailed woman asks you to bring her lost artifact to her from the commons. I got the item, brought it up to her window, and handed it over. She gave me a dialogue along the lines of "You have my thanks, my name is Somethingsomething, I worked for the Parris", but when I clicked the dialogue wouldn't advance or disappear. I could move my inventory, use my journal, even click on "menu", but it was like just her dialogue was frozen. So I exited to the main menu, returned to gameplay, and now she's asking me for her item again. It's gone from my inventory, the place I got it from can't be accessed (the game won't even let me click on the spot because the item is gone and the puzzle is solved) so I can't progress.

Very disappointed since I was enjoying it up until that part. Judging by the numerous bug complaints of repeated issues (vanishing inventory, "access violation") from so many people, it sounds as though this one needed a bit more testing before release.

Are you sure that this came out on CE? I don't remember it?

Was liking this game and was going to purchase until game froze while trying to get gem out of the stone wall at prison. Went out and came back in and lost all inventory. Not well tested.

First off, I really like this game! That said, I, too, encountered the glitch with the inventory disappearing. So I exited and closed the game, and when I went back to it, my inventory was back! Maybe something to try if you're having similar problems. I am not too concerned, BFG is a great company and always follows through. I'm sure they will come up with a fix if needed.

p.s. I can never have enough "scary" games no matter what time of year. I especially like the historical games! Also loved Salem Secrets.

I went out and game back in as was suggested by hairteach and yes my inventory came back but the knife did not. ( I was at the point where you move the stone with the knife to get the gem when it froze.) I went back to the house to see if the knife was there but it wasn't and the red stone was not in my inventory.
