Sound Issues with the conversation
It has been suggested that I post this here. The sound does not seem to work during the conversations in the demo. You have to buy to get to hear this. LOL!
No idea why, but found out through the threads and from my own experience.
No sound before buy..... sound after I paid Very strange, but true.

Glad to help. This game is going to take some time to finish, as it is so large, I will be dipping in and out of it until the weekend at least. Yippee!
Enjoy, scpotamus I know I will

I was just going to report this sound issue and saw your post.
I love these series and was going to buy it even if there was no demo.
Thanks Peglegann for the heads up

I downloaded the game with no problems. When it asked me to install DirectX I agreed, but then it turned out I already have the newest version. For me, the game was off the screen to the left, cutting off part of my inventory and leaving a couple inches of black on the right side of my monitor. I tried to play the game but really couldn't figure out what to do. Some items would show a mouse if you hovered over them and clicking on them did nothing. Other items would show a mouse with an eye, but clicking on them also did nothing. I thought the eye meant you could look closer at them. Apparently not. Still other items had a mouse with an eye and a hand. You could pick these items up and clicking on these items DID add them to your inventory. Went to every area she could get to, picked up every item she could pick up, couldn't leave the apartment, so I guess I am done. There has to be something I am missing. Trying to use items together (like the letter opener and an envelope) got me the message: These items don't match. Oooookay.

Turning Aero off also worked for me, no more blank screen.

The items with the eye need to be "right clicked" and this will give you some info. The letter opener does not go with the envelope. Hope this helps a little.

This is the problem that I am having. The download was 100 % complete. It is stuck on validating for a long time. I clicked on it and it said game manager not responding. It did not give me any sort of Direct X message which I have gotten in the past. Downloaded it twice- same problem.

please ignore this as finally it installed. I got the direct X message and I was up to date. Now we will see how well the game plays ?????? Hopefully no glitches.

Mine has also been validating and saving for over an hour now. Haven't received any message about DirectX at all.

Ok, tried to play the game today and it won't start from the game manager...so I started it from the file. Played well as far as no choppy cutscenes (cursor still a bit sluggish) until I got to ... I don't want to spoil anything ...lets just say that the choppy video and sound during the cutscenes resumed. I closed it down and restarted (making sure the Aero was still off) and the beginning scenes still played just fine. Went to my saved game and cutscenes choppy again and cursor VERY sluggish. What is going on?
I'm going to reboot and try cutting off any extraneous background stuff and see if that helps.

Hi. The talking does not work until after you buy it. I put a post at the top of here about that. A lot of people have had problems with the box as it needs to be right clicked not left. Right-clicking is prevalent in this game and you cannot get anywhere without it. Hope this helps.

Very happy to hear the dialogue comes with purchase.But I wonder if anyone else has had success with this.

I've been through the Dr. Felix thing with CS and they could find no reason for the problem, so as much as I want to play this game, I'm still reluctant.

It's just a pain to download the thing again and then have to go back to CS if it doesn't work, go through the routine again and finally get a coupon when there's nothing else I'm interested in. This type of game isn't offered a lot and it's really all I'm interested in.

So I if any else one out there has taken the chance I'd appreciate a nod.

Thanks,
Jan

I get the choppy cutscenes, as well. I run Win XP, so no Aero to turn off. I haven't been able to play any of the Art of Murder games... too bad, because I really like this kind of game

Hi Jan, 2 or 3 of us have found that there is no sound with the demo and we have sound since we bought. Strange but true. Look through this forum and read the different posts. I read everything I can before I buy a game if I am unsure. Hope this helps. Ann

Thanks Ann. I appreciate the info and am looking forward to playing the game.
