I found 4 of 5 robot heads in the junkyard. I used the hint 3 times to find the 5th head and 3 times it highlighted an area in the lower left which had nothing.

I wasn't ten minutes into the demo when my monitor went black, into 'auto safe mode', and I had to shut the PC down at the terminal. I've only ever had this happen once before, and I can't recall which game it was. I know that I have the latest Nvidia driver, as CS helped me with that when I had a flickering cursor on Phantom of the Opera. I've literally played dozens of games since then, so I'm afraid this will be a No Buy for me. When rebooting tells me I have recovered from a "Serious Error", then I can do without a new game as it's not worth it to me to risk serious damage. I'll just go finish playing Phantasmat a second time, and pass on this one. Pity, it looked interesting, too.

Oops, I deleted the game and was going to give it one more try. Then I noticed that it requires 1012 RAM. That leaves me out. My computer does not meet this requirement. Time for an upgrade or new computer.....???


I also have the same problem have tried 3 times to download , too bad

Again access violation (gee surprise). I'm curious why it's easy to download the more expensive collectors editions with no problems, but the regular priced ones always seem to cause a problem with access or wrong file versions.

What a joke!

Good point there.
And what really starts to irritate the heck out of me is even with games where lots of people have problems and post them i. e. Lost in time: the clockwork tower...it's of course our computers and not something wrong with the game. You can only update a computer IF there is an update to be had.....

I'm sooooo tried of hearing that.

I played the entire demo and had no technical issues at all. I play on a wide screen and did not have to make adjustments.

Just wanted to mention that since most people aren't having "access violation" errors it's probably not a coding error with the game. The most common reasons for the "access violation" error is either a bad stick of RAM or a driver issue. Computers are a lot like cars; the more miles you put on it the more likely it is something will fail. It's not uncommon for a stick of RAM to go bad, even in a brand new computer. I've actually bought RAM that was bad when I got it.

You might not see these issues until you tax your machine when it tries to open one of the game files. This is why some games will play fine and others won't. It just depends on how they were coded and what resources they're using at what time.

If you write down your error message code, you can google that code. Most likely it will tell you it's a memory (RAM) or video issue.

I honestly believe that a lot of issues are cropping up with these newer very RAM intensive, video intensive games. The bigger and better they get, the more machine we need to play them. A lot of of-the-shelf machines have integrated video cards (built into the motherboard) and some of these just don't have enough memory to handle some of these newer games.

I'm not saying it isn't a game issue but it would be uncommon for a game with coding errors to play flawlessly on one computer and not on another. I played with no problem in wide-screen with no issues at all.

Hope these tips helped and I'm sorry you can't play the game as I think it's a good one. Good luck all and happy gaming!

I'm having problems with the teleporter. I put in the fuses, open the hatch and my cursor turns into a directional arrow. When I click on the chair the telporter lights up, my cursor remains a directional arrow and....NOTHING. I can't even exit the game at this stage by the menu, I have to ctrl alt del.

I can't say I was in love with this game, but I was interested and very well might have bought it. I'm just glad the game failed while I was playing the free trial. I would have been really ticked if I had purchased it, then had the problem.

I downloaded the trial version and installed it. When I tried to start the game, it loads, I get an icon in my systray and the screen goes black, then goes back to a normal desktop screen. When I click on the icon, the screen goes black and then clicks back to a normal desktop screen display. I get no error message. Have to use Task Manager to get rid of the icon in the systray.

I have Win7, 64 bit

Intel Core i7 2.67 Ghz, 9 GB Ram

Would love to take the game for a trial spin, but looks like I'm uninstalling the trial version.

Part of my screen is cut off also, about 1/5 of the left side is blank and can only get full pic in windowed. I haven't tried playing yet as I can't see well enough in windowed. I will try reinstall, but usually when this stuff happens I have to wait for fix. looks like another rushed game that was not well tested...guess it's all about the money.

That error message may only be a result of a corruption of downloaded game files. This means that there was a mistake happenned during downloading of the files on your computer. Try to completely delete all the files (not just from your download manager menu), and then download the game once again (or contact the support team).

The game actually runs even at 256Mb RAM and 512Mb RAM, so your RAM is not an issue.


same prob here with lua5.1.dll file missing or corrupt error 126

b4 i came here and found your suggestion, i checked online help docs, they say error 126 is caused by outdated direct x, while i was sure my directx was uptodate i went and checked via dxdiag, no probs found with anything, checked directx downloads just to be sure i had newest, got a few updates uninstalled game, re-booted even tho prob not necessary, downloaded game again, same error

came here found your advice, uninstalled game thru add/remove programs instead of game manager, again rebooted, installed game again ... and .... same error

i checked the file folder for the game, it actually contains two similar files lua51.dll and lua5.1.dll, researched a bit and it seems lua5.1.dll is the newer version and lua51.dll is basically a placeholder used to place a call to lua5.1.dll and/or to be used if/when the program actually needs the older version

i pulled lua51.dll out of the folder and tried the .exe file again thinking maybe if it didn't go to the 51 file first it might go direct to 5.1 and find it ... but no go, just got a changed error msg now not finding the 51 file, of course cause i moved it lol!

shame i can't get a fix for this because after reading all the comments i really was interested in trying it out!

do you have a site with a direct from you download? and if so can you pm me a link ? maybe from someone other than i won't get same error? other sites i tried all link back to so no help there

My computer rebooted with a major system crash noted when it restarted. This happened after I entered my name but before I even got thru the intro story. I uninstalled the demo and will give it one more try.

Update: The demo hour played fine after that.
