It also didn't help that the instructions weren't clear and the non-grooved tumbler was the very top and bottom and it only held one number (well on hard mode it did) which on top of everything did take me a while to work out. It was the two tumblers immediately above and below the center one that you could put more numbers in it. But it was a definite glitch as sometimes on the tumblers you were supposed to put sequencial numbers the mouse wouldn't let you.

A lot of the puzzles I didn't like how they were programmed especially it seemed in the bonus area - the arrows on some of the blocks games. It seemed so overly sensitive, and plain annoying that I ended up not having patience for them, and yes I would put them in the glitchy category as it made them unplayable for me.

three strikes and you're out.

Game froze at the exact same spot every time -- the drawbridge mechanism.

What a drag.

In the strategy guide, the blood is located with an @ symbol. Double check your scenes again against the in built strategy guide - the guide also gives you photo of the scenes and tells you on the photo (if you double click on it makes it bigger) where it is.
I don't know what chapter you are on - but in 2 different times in office, in chapter 2 - one was on the closer table in a small bottle, the other scene it was in the larger desk on the right - plain view in a bottle.

I don't know if 'location complete' means the blood as well. You can do this game without taking any of the victims.

This is the part I am stuck on too. It is during the scene when the red "corruption" has taken over Van Helsing's office and you have to collect the rivets etc. I looked at the SG and it states that the vial/bottle full of red liquid on the desk nearest to the player is blood but I cannot click on it. No fangs show up or anything. I looked through the other scenes as well and there are no more vials/bottles to collect. Very very VERY frustrating! :-/

I think it is a glitch because if it's at the time of the game I think it is I had the same problem. I just carried on the game and when I came back to the area later it was available to me then but not earlier (I think I had to finish all the other areas first). If you have done everything and can't go on with the story try just going to different areas and then going back to the scene.

i also had the same issue at the tumbler in the extra chapter. I have refreshed the puzzle & it won't let me move anything - i can sit here & wait until it lets me skip but that is very annoying!!

OK I checked the strategy guide and the bottle of blood on the table will not let me select it. Was it something that had to be taken prior to where the office was corrupted with blood?

Problem is, I have finished the other locations. This is the last one that I need to complete to go ahead with the storyline. I am out of blood and the only thing I need to do in the office to move forward requires it. Really sucks because I was actually enjoying this game! If it is a glitch, which it does sound like because other people are having the same problem, I hope it gets fixed. Otherwise, this was a BIG waste of money.

I'm really starting to think its a glich because I've finished all of the other locations. That's the last one on this level. I'm getting very frustrating I've also started the game over several times and end up with the same problem. BIG FISH HELP!!!

Same here, can not move my curser any more. This happend to the third game already, and BF never did anything to repair this issue. So I also want to warn you not to change the curser to custom curser. Game over.

Hey fishies,

If you’re having troubles clicking on the vial of blood on the table, there’s a good chance that you're playing with an illegitimate copy of the game, as this particular issue is one that is caused by a progression blocker that detects the game was not purchased from Big Fish Games or a licensed affiliate.

To make sure that you're playing a legitimate copy of Dracula: Love Kills CE, please uninstall this game from your computer and then reinstall it through your Purchase History.

Here’s a link to a help article that will guide you through this process:

Uninstall / Reinstall a Game

If you've done this and continue to have troubles, please feel free to contact Customer Support for further assistance by clicking on the green at the top-right of the page.

I am having the same issue. I have tried uninstalling and downloading again and installing, but each time, entering my profile name results in it telling me it is corrupted. I am unable to play this game.

Mine also freezes at the drawbridge mechanism and had to shut the game and computer down. It's so frustrating to come all the way through to this far and have this happen. BFG----What's the problem? It's got to be the game. I played the whole rest of it and it was fine, so it's not my computer. It IS the game. I thought these games were checked out before they were sold. You can't use the very best pc to check them. Most of us don't have the very best pc. Try using an older one to check them and you'll see what the rest of us have to put up with. Big bummer!

this game was totally unplayable for me, it has all different colored stripes and you can barely see where it says to enter your name. i have had other games that did the same thing. the first game that did this was deadtime stories and i did all the things to update my computer and nothing helped. have since had a few games with the same problem. i just delete them and wait for one that plays on my computer.

My game downloads fine but you can't make out anything on the screen once it does. The lines and words are not there. Have uninstalled and reinstalled several times but it didn't help. would really love to try this game any suggestions

I PURCHASED THE GAME AND GOT THE BACKUP DISC AS WELL. THE GAME THATS DOWNLOADED ON MY COMPUTER I FINISHED ALONG WITH THE EXTRA PLAY. MY PROBLEM IS WHEN I WENT TO OPEN UP THE GAME WITH THE SAME PLAYER NAME, OR ANY OTHER, IT SAYS "CHANGE NAME PLAYER, PLAYER NAME CORRUPTED". I TRIED A NEW NAME AND IT SAYS THE SAME! $22.00 FOR A ONCE THRU, WHAT'S UP?!
