I was able to finish the trial period after I restarted it. I have a new computer and windows 7 , I had trouble getting started but then Big Fishsent me a screen that allows them to download their games. I.. accept any game I download and have been having better luck .There are still glitches but hopefully before the SE comes out they will be addressed.

Download speed is governed by how many other people are on-line in your area, try downloading when most businesses are closed and schoolchildren are in bed.
Downloaded in Safe Mode, no problem with speed. Re-booted, game won't launch from desktop icon or from Game manager. Off to the techies AGAIN!!

Downloaded normal time, but when clicked play did nothing except it caused a previously purchased game to deactivate. Tried this twice. Weird!

Bought the game, no trial first. But it crashes everytime almost at the beginning. The scene after the horseman inn, toward some tower maybe... It just goes black and I get a message telling me it's stopped working

This looks a good game and one I would probably buy however it keeps freezing. I have had a few games that did this occasionally, but this game does it every time I change screens! Sorry, BFG, this one is a no buy for me.

I have the same glitch that was reported by another user. I am upstairs in the tower and no hidden object scene. I have the items from the shield but no sparkles for the hidden object scene. I can't move forward in the game at this point....

Why is it that I usually only have issues with the ERS games? I loved the Puppet series, but on the last one I had a constipated game!!!!! It is so frustating!!!!! Looks like a good game, but a no brainer for me!!!! Wish they would tell us ahead of time , I wouldn't waste my time downloading an ERS game!!!!! Poot!

He's back. Does everyone recognize our little monster from another story? He is still as mean as ever.

I am always amazed when I hear that peeps don`t demo a game first. Just because it`s from a developer you didn`t have trouble with previously, doesn´t mean a later game of theirs has no problems either.

I never had any issues with any of the ERS games, except the last one: "Redemption Cemetery: Children`s Plight". I played the trial version just fine, and when I bought the game, instead of installing, I got the dreaded blue screen of death. I still don`t know why that happened, but there you go.

I think that ERS aren`t taking enough time and care anymore with their games. They come out too quickly, like a car on the assembly line. And that`s why the last game was so full of glitches.

I played the trial of this game for a full hour, and didn`t have any problems. Am a little apprehensive about getting the full version though, considering what happened last time I bought the full version...

And this "comment" belongs in the "Technical Issues" thread because...?

I keep having issues with this game. It seems like every time I go to another location within the game I always get booted out of the game and have to restart it. I have uninstalled the game and restarted it, but with no success. Please help.

Another glitch. I only have 23 Crystals and I need 24 to finish. I have backtracked to see where I missed one. The only place I remember that I didn't get one that the guide said I should get one is in the chest upstairs by the ladder to the demon's den. Now I cannot finish the game and I don't know if I want to restart the game a 3rd time. This is ridiculous to have these expensive games come out with these problems. This seems to happen all the time. Maybe it's because they put one out about every other day.

Having same problem as nwr1948x.The recent games from ERS have frozen on me from early on in game and I love their games Great graphics. I have had to use crl/alt/del to come out of the games and sometimes it didn't work and had to shut the computer down.I wasn't able to play Queen Of Spades neither CE nor SE as the screen kept freezing.I won't buy until I know that games work properly.I don't like the new GM.downloading now takes forever. Any suggestions?

Same problem here, and this isn't the first time this has happened. i'm getting so blasted frustrated with this kind of stuff, i can hardly stand it anymore. NEVER had any problems until the past few months, now it's continuous frustration. Had another game just before i tried this one tell me the trial was ended as soon as it dl'd, & i'd never trialed or even seen the game before today. (insert numerous expletives here )

The only problem I've had with this game, is that every time I click on the Goblin my laptop freezes up and I have to reboot.

FYI - Game freeze, crashing, black screens, game won't load, etc, etc -most always will be the result of insufficient memory and/or an inadequate graphic card. No other way around it. It's not the game, the developer, or BFG. Lack of memory and/or the inability for the computer's graphics card to process the game's graphics are the culprits here.

Access violation on initial launch of the game -- this is a programming error - there should be a graceful error message - which then resets the BFG Game Manager clock.

I've not seen a consistent pattern to these access violation errors, but they happen across developers and not just constrained to a single quick&dirty shop, sadly.

Since it takes a long time to download the game (btw this is an easy problem to solve on the server side),onto my net appliance, there's a crap shoot if the BFG game of the day will even launch for my low end laptop. I keep asking for a page where certain configurations that were tested by BFG are posted, so I can bypass downloading a game that expects a higher configuration, particularly the display the game is coded for.

So then to just have the game crash without even seeing if it hits the display problem. Annoying. Yogurt commercial inverse annoying!

There is a great market space for competitors opening up here -- can't BFG brand be tied to not only games without malware but also that it tests for canonic configurations?

Marketing department?? LISTENING?
