Well, I am now having trouble with this game starting. That makes two days in a row. I have not had problems until these last two games. I like others, had installed and reinstalled the games. No luck. Both games dowload ok but when I go to open it I get nothing but a black screen. This hangs up my computer and I need to turn off my computer and restart. I also went through all the steps suggested but no difference. I hope this is not an indication that I wouldn't be able to use this site. BFG has been my number 1 site to download games because I knew I could trust it.

Is anyone else having trouble filling their canteen the second time. I used all the water and the HINT says to fill my canteen in the well. That is what I am trying to do but the canteen won't fill again.

I to am having problems with canteen. Wont let me fill a second time. Getting so sick of games having glitches. Seems to happen all to often lately. It's one thing if it happens during trial but once you pay for a game and then in middle of it theres a glitch. SO FUSTRATING

Hello to Lisa and everyone else who's having problems with the Journal. I had the same problem and I got around it by starting a new profile and when going in again, I didn't select the journal but looked around the deck of the ship for a hidden object game and inside the cabin for a clue as to the fuse box. Don't click on the journal and you'll do fine.

Happy Gaming,
Linda

I thought there was a glitch too. The glitch was the hint button was wrong about filling canteen second time. Thanks to another player's tip I went to the fountain of the temple and filled my canteen. It worked then.

I just finished the game. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Hip Hip Hooray!! Finally a game I was able to use one of my punch reward on. Most of this month has been the SE version of the CE games I had already bought so I wasn't able to use them. I still have 2 to go for all the CEs I bought last month. LOL!!

Hi there,
Well, I did uncheck the full screen mode and had to play in windowed mode - OK as the graphics were very clear (though why have a widescreen setting if it doesn't work).
I managed to complete the main game play, HOWEVER, I too constantly received the access violation error every time I tried to complete the story page puzzles and was kicked out of the game, so I have no idea what these are!!
Cheers

I've got a bug in the kitchen I see a frozen scene of hidden objects and nothing?

I put the wood in the fireplace, I put the head of a lion in the midst of swords and after nothing -

I can not find anything to do? I'm sick of these bugs, you have a solution?

I was having same screen issues mentioned here. Could only read "Play" button. So when "play" showed I hit Esp. and "settings" menu appeared. I notices that both the "full screen" box and the "lettered" box were checked. So I unchecked the "lettered" box...And, so far, it has been working.

Reading these comments, I was a little apprehensive about the journal, but had in fact no problems at all using it.

WOW!...was enjoying the game...thought this would be a 'buy'....NOPE!

first...dwnld demo, set name, played...until got to the carriage...took the book...and...the game froze!
could not or would not let me out...had to turn off puter!
second...back to GM and hit play...well changed name...turned off fun cursor...skip to the where the game started...OH MY! GOING GOOD SO FAR!...got to the carriage again...took the book...and...oooopsee!

this time i got a message of 'terminate' access error 0x34be000....WELL at least it let me get back to the GM!

and....BTW...have not had any problems with loading any games, either new demo's or my own purchase history games within the GM...will keep my 'fins' crossed...AND...have had some games that are new freeze up but this game is a FIRST in many many months that has 'ended' with a code!...

Having the same exact problem as you are. Hope this gets fixed soon, the game looks like a good one.

I was having the same problem as Lisa and others, but I did as you said Linda, I started a new profile and after doing that, I can actually access the Journal without any problems, Hope that this works for others.

I've noticed that the b o o t l e g / t o r r e n t game download websites have posted a FIX-download (.exe file) for this game on Aug27-2011.
Wonder why BFG has not done the same?
