There is a newer new version of it (1.004), available actually since MARCH!!! - and it fixes all the bugs that I've read about in this thread and others, to do with hangs, hardware errors, etc., and others too. It is faster, all round better. See my thread about game hanging. Please can you make it available ASAP! Thank you

I think I have a glitch. On the clean the river challenge the last barrel is inside the barnyard and I cannot pick it up.

Have the conflicts causing the game to hang under Windows7 64-bit been resolved yet?

I was playing the Railway Challenge in Sandbox mode this morning when this happened. Has anyone else had this problem? and/or know of a solution?


I'm having the same problem. I have just redownloaded it to play it after not playing it for a while and am getting the above message. I have tried removing it and reinstalling about 6 times and it still comes up with the same message.

The hardware failure to switch is exactly the sort of thing you should contact Customer Support for--green envelope, right-hand column. If the first try doesn't work, let them keep pounding at it! Usually they'll succeed; if not, you'll get a credit. Can't lose--may not gain, but can't lose.

Just wanted to let you know that I purchased this game on June 8 (2011 !) and these bugs are all still an issue. I'm also unable to do anything in my town after the train race. I've had to lower my screen resolution a couple times due to video failure messages and have had several error crashes during gameplay. Now, so near the end, STUCK!

In your state, kmcbrair, I'd be contacting Customer Support both at BFG and the developer.

Love this game BUT,

Downloaded in 2009, learned to deal with crashes by saving game after each objective completed.

Version 02 came out, updated, (deleted & reinstalled). Same crashing symptoms.
So I saved frequently.

Version 03 came out, updated etc. Had to start completly new. No previous saves were in the game.

Version 04 came out, all of the saves from version 02 there, no saves from version 3.

Wanted to complete game in version 03, but it is now gone. Is version 04 just version 02 rereleased?

My game just cuts off by itself. I have version 4. I will be playing and then it just ends and takes me back to the game manager that says "play now". When I hit play now it tells me the game is still running yet when I restart it , I have to start over where I was when I turned it on to begin with. I dont even have time to save it before it just stops. I am running windows 7 on a brand new computer.

Yet another q'n far better handled by the Customer Support people, who are paid and trained for the purpose, than by random fellow fish.

I just downloaded version 4, and it still freezes after the train race. I have contacted customer service, but it seems to be an issue affecting many people, so wanted to post here as well. I will post back if there is a solution!

My train stays stuck at the train yard, the barrier stays down, and the citizens are still employed at the train yard. It is not carrying anything, but it means I can't complete half the quests or sell town goods. This is the fourth save slot this has happened.

So far as I know, the Market Place Challenges have exactly zero connection to the length of your railway line. Which would explain why they're all available in the Sandbox, which HAS no satellite towns!

I don't know what you mean by "fourth save slot".

However, I'm betting your train is irrevocably stuck. This is a programming error that the developers never quite managed to correct.

As I posted in the Tech thread for this forum:

If I remember properly, the workaround was to avoid saving OR going to the race--or any town, for that matter--while a train is still transiting the map. (If necessary, I suppose you could reduce down to only one unskilled coal shoveler so there's longer between trains and make it easier to check this.)

This isn't necessary in the early game. I think the problem shows up after the mandatory upgrade at the station.

Hope you have an earlier save to Load and start over from.
