Titatic fateful voyage, Island lost medallion and now the above game. I have done everything from the help pages, have run a registry cleaner, added Big Fish to anti-virus, changed game manager setting to alternate method. I have no problem playing games from other sites. Do other fishies have this problem with the above game.
Thanks


Anna, this has happened to me on the exact same three games. I was even contacted by the developer of Island to test the stand alone game for him and it played just fine from their own site. I'm especially irked about Deadtime Stories. I'm not going to jump through hoops to get a game to play through the game manager - already bought it from the developer instead.

I am having problems aswell game keeps crashing, thats after it takes forever to load, the curser is slow and sluggish, i got kicked out of the game and when i started it up again it went back to the start not that i got very far, out of my 1hr demo played about 10mins.
I really would have liked to buy this game, but i have a few problems with games not playing. i have a couple half finished that i really cant be botherd to play anymore. I am getting pretty fed up spending money on games that have problems.

Error denial comes up on deadtime stories, Amelia Earhart, as well as other games lately. Don't know what the dilemma is but would like to play some games soon.

I too am getting the access violation error. I played the game with no trouble earlier today. Now I can't get past the error. I agree - this is happening much too frequently through BFG. There has to be something wrong - too many people with same problem. My computer is new, up to date so none of the help support suggestions are of any help. Not a happy camper.

I have now downloaded it and bought it from another site and it works fine. This is obviously a problem with Big Fish site. Are they going to fix all these errors. I have been a member for years but am getting really tired of access violations from their games.

I installed~deleted~re-installed nothing finally deleted it again~~~went to had no problem getting it to download, unpack the resources and playing it for the hour. Now I just have to decide if I want to pay 13.99 over at I win or wait and see if Big Fish can fix there problem.

I really wanted to like this game but I can't take the FLOATING cursor - why can't BF make it a rule to have the option of cutting off the custom cursor - IT IS TO MUCH TO ASK!

It is the only problem I had!

Same problem here- played my demo with no problem, purchased game. Played for an hour and shut it down. Went to reopen it and it crashes on me. However, when I created a new player, it went right to the beginning with no problem. ARGH.

I am also having trouble with this game, or should I say, lack of it. I downloaded the trial, and it will not activate. Cannot delete it, I get a message that the game is already running.....but I have no picture, no sound, nada. Never had a problem like this before. Any suggestions, BF?

I bought it the second I saw it ... I played very happily for over an hour and then quit the game ... I have just tried to play again and as soon as I press to continue playing I get a black screen and it says " Deadtime Stories.exe has stopped working " the black screen goes away and I'm taken back to the " thank you for playing " screen .. Any ideas on how to fix it please ?

Thanks


I'm also having the same problem. I'm running Windows Vista with IE7. I bought the game after the demo was up and was able to play for awhile longer (had to start from the begining). I closed the game and now when I try to play it again, I click on the Continue button on the Main Menu and it goes to a black screen and then error message that 'Deadtime Stories.exe has stopped working'. Can't play again and I really want to. I really like this game and knew I was going to buy it after 10 min into the demo.

I agree with you all, the last months several games with problems, floating cursers, crashing computer, support team is very helpful but i did everything they suggested and still won t work. So i am going to try this game on another site, when it works fine it must be something with BF site

Just putting this here in case anyone suffers the same problem.
I thought I had cursor problems as when it reached the top of the screen, the custom one stopped working and the computer cursor showed. I couldn't click on anything at the top as the game kept minimising. I then realised it is the new 'Vaio Gate' at the top of the desktop that was causing the issue. Shut that and all plays fine.
A fantastic game, so I hope you fishies can sort your tech issues and don't miss out on this gem.

I haven't had any trouble with the game, because I can't download the demo! I first get a warning about the certificate, ignore that message and then get another error message saying the file has a virus!
