Miracles never cease. It downloaded and plays fine. Alas, Eden's Quest did not. I don't know why some do and some don't, and not for the same people.

Just finished demo hour - where did the time go???

Brilliant. Not sure I'll be able to wait for the regular edition....

Not sure about the length though - I seem to be on chapter 3. The graphics at the start seemed to indicate 7 'days' and I haven't appeared to pass from day one...hmm. Of course the was to find out is the length is to glance through the strategy guide, but I'd hate to buy the full version, only to discover that there are only 5 chapters in total........hmmm.

It didn't download for me either WindowsXP here. This is frustrating. I had problems downloading the TGTs over the weekend. Wrote to CS and got this reply:

I think the problem might have to do with your Firewall stopping the activation. To fix this issue, what we will need to do is add the game manager (and related applications) to your Firewall and Anti-Virus software's safe list (usually referred to as "white listing") to resolve these problems. The game manager is located in your Program Files:

C:\Program Files\bfgclient

The 3 applications that need to be "white listed":

* bfgclient.exe
* bfgprocess.exe
* bfggameservices.exe


My Installation Failed: http://bigfishgames.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/164

Problem Downloading & Activating Games http://bigfishgames.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/536

If you have trouble with this step, you will need to contact the maker of your anti-virus software directly for further directions. All software programs are different so we want to make sure you are able to complete this step correctly with their help.
.......................................................................................................................

I wonder if I should try that.

I am so sorry for those who cannot get this to download. I am also on chapter 3 with 11 minutes left on the trial. Really enjoying, but if you don't like games that move back and forth between scenes, you won't. I also love fairy tales so this dragged me in instantly. Not sure if I will buy or wait for the $6.99 version. I am totally spoiled when it comes to cost of games. Also have not needed to use any hints to wondering if I would feel I put the extra $14 dollars into it for not much.
Anyhow, I hope you all get your problems with downloading worked out, because this is a good game.

have tried it on both my computers one with windows XP and one with vista - in both cases it immediately goes to error downloading as soon as the game manager starts up. Hopefully CS or techies will find a fix I was so looking forward to this game - can't complain too loudly only 3 games in three years have failed to download.

I really like the game. However, I refuse to spend $19.95 for a game. I will have to wait several weeks to get the cheaper version. These games are not worth $19.95.

I use XP and can't download either.
I have tried to shot down firewall and antivirus and it did not work.
Hope BF work on the problem because that game look like I would like it.

I briefly had a problem w/downloading, got the "check connection" type of message. Went ahead and did other stuff. I figured the server was just busy.

Tried later, it d/loaded and installed easily.

This is a great game!

I've read that so many people have problems downloading. For me, no problem. Running XP SP3 on iMac.
Feel bad for those who can't download.
