I saw somewhere that the Big Fish Orchard Installer is the right one? So that's why I got it. It's working fine for me! I'm running Vista =)

I tried to download the free trial and it gets to the loading screen and then shuts down. I decided to try downloading it off of IWin and it gets to the same point and shuts down, but at least it gives me an error message. The message states that the Application and ModName orchard.ifn had failed... Offset #00082882. Hopefully this will help BFG fix this as I am a longtime member and have purchased many TM games.

Twice or three times now I have downloaded the trial version of this game and as soon as the orchard loads the screen goes blank and quits. It takes time off of my trial. Says I've played four or five minutes when I haven't played a second of it. I've read through everyone's posts here and have yet to see a reason for this happening....Has anyone been given a reason by Big Fish as to why this occurs?

I don't get any error messages. I've checked all the requirements and there shouldn't be any issue!

Anyone with any ideas?

Glad to hear it's not just me. I love farm based TM games and was looking forward to this. It just cuts off after the 'Preparing Orchard' screen.

I'm having the same problem. It shuts down right after it "preparing the orchard." No error message, just takes time off the trial.

Still playing and making juices now...haven't run into any errors. The game's still pretty slow paced, but it's easier to play when you get to start with more workers...just get them cracking on all your buildings and plants.

I was having a lot of problems w/this game too, it wouldn't run kept saying "unable to init dx8" and crashing out, leaving itself running in the background... I contacted the developers and they gave a "i dunno why it's doing that" crappy answer. Basically looks like they ain't planning on fixing anything... a shame cuz it was kind of a fun game the one time I was able to get it to run at all...

I've played to the point where I can make pies then my system locks up and I have to reboot. Tried three times and I'm not happy!

Same problem here, it loads, then crashes immediately after the "preparing orchard screen". Not going to bother with it if its not going to work.

Okay, I've had the same problems that everyone else had with the game not playing. I did get to do the trial on my laptop and daughter's computer but not on my desktop. I decided to check to see what the difference was between the computers. We are all running the same version of directx so that isn't the problem. The only difference that I see is my computer processor is slower. Could that be the problem? I am running an AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 2.1GHz and the other two are running AMD Athlon 64 processors, one at 2.4 GHz and the other at 2.6 GHz. To check to see what you are running go to Start...Run...Type in Dxdiag. That will tell you what directx you are running and info about your computer. What is the requirement for running this game?

I have tried twice to get this game for my grandkids. It downloads, but the only part of the screen showing is at the top left of the monitor. Any help with this issue would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Karen

I purchased the game without downloading the free trial and when I click install now and then open nothing happens!

Are they ever going to fix thix problem? I just tried to download again and it still just automatically shuts down after the "preparing the orchard screen". I love time management games and I'm looking for something new to play but I can't ever seem to get this to work. I left a previous post and it doesn't seem like Big Fish is big on fixing this this problem.

I can't save the game, I have tried all of the ways suggested on this forum - but none of them are working

As soon as I quit or return to the main menu I lose my level and have to start from the beginning again - it's very frustrating. Anyone have any more ideas?

If this cannot be fixed, can we get our game credit back?

Thanks for any help in advance

Jodie

I had the exact same problem. I've uninstalled and redownloaded this game 3 times and it does the same thing. So it isnt just a corrupted download there is something wrong with the file itself.
