I'm having the same issue with the picture evidence board. finished, but won't let me back out. It seems like a lot of people are having this issue. Hopefully there will be another update to fix this.

I have Windows 8.1 all the drivers are updated and I am trying a reinstall of the game. My first problem was when I got near the part in the game by the robot, if I didn't pick up the pulley first before cutting the leather for the cable, I couldn't get back in to get the pulley to continue the game. SO I had to start the game all over. Now when I get to the HOP in the scene after that, the game freezes. There might be some issues with this game in general that the creators need to examine and fix.

After shutting down came by clicking and closing "fatal error" and restarting game.....screen remains black. Had to uninstall and re-install.......tried to play with same screen name.......still black screen. Had to create new character and start from beginning. That really sucks.......and I'm hoping I just don't get shut out again by same problem, whatever it is. Please fix, this seems to be happening to many folks. Unacceptable, Big Fish!!!!


same here 'fatal error' around steel steps part

i dont want to start again so i'll wait till the fix comes out! good game such a shame.

Yes, having the same problem. So very frustrating to get this far and have it freeze. Please help!

This wonderful game has frozen on two separate lap tops. I went back to my smaller Toshiba and down loaded the game just to see if I could finish it. Nope. I'll have to wait for a fix, and I hope they come up with one fast. This is a great game.

I went back and am playing without the puzzle option in the HOS, and so far it's working. This is not satisfactory. I want the whole game, not just pieces of it!

Iornaovendent1, I even started the game all over again. and as soon as I get to the second set of pictures, and you are done with the clues, again, it stops there, and won't let me back out to continue, if you click on hint, it shows that you are to back out, but it won't let you. Please Bigfish, any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated, if there is a glitch in this game I would like to be refunded and allowed to use my 60% off again on another game. Someone please answer us. This is very frustrating. I look forward to playing ALL my games glitch free.

the update did NOT fix the problem that many people reported, the game freezing and lockin up if you do things out of order. Please forget the sundry extras and deal with the main issues that have been reported, or refund the money people have paid for this game

i am having the same problem as everyone else after finishing the evidance board the game freezes there and will not let you back out and finish the game. A pain because I could have bought another game and only had so much money.

A new build announcement posted for screen saver problem. First, it is unavailable through my game manager and I have no idea where to find it other than game manager. Second, it doesn't seem like the glitch with the photos is addressed. Am I on another planet? Could be, I've been there before!

referring us to the useless info on game freezes is not helpful, From the reports above it is evident that the problem lies not in our computers , but in the game .

The map doesn't work, at least I would be able to jump to another site and come back. The hint tells me to go backwards. I have uninstalled and tried again, no luck. Disappointed!! I was quite a ways into the game and now I can't play. Anyone else with this problem?



Having the exact same issue.
