Bugs and glitches - Update Available?

[Post New]by ffachet on Mar 12, 09 10:25 AM
Just started this game and it has many problems on my system (Windows Vista SP1.) On the first puzzle (spot the differences) I got a memory access error and Windows had to kill the process. I restarted the game and got past puzzle 1 but on the next puzzle, you cannot place the pieces on the statue and rotate them. They immediately snap back to the bottom. This seems to eb a very buggy game or one that does not run well under Vista. Any updates planned?

Finally figured out how to get around the jigsaw issue. Apparently you have to hold down the left mouse button and simultaneously click the right mouse button in order to move and rotate the pieces. If you release the left button at any time before you correctly place the piece, it immediately snaps back to the bin. This is the first time I have encountered such a dual button requirement and it is really awkward. You should be able to drop the piece on the puzzle and then rotate it as a separate action.

Just a hint: space bar can be used instead of the right mouse click.

OK I am using Windows 7, but most of the games I Have tried at least start! I can't get this to open. Too bad. The history channel should have some interesting and reasonably accurate facts..

that's interesting about the right click, I have never encountered this way of doing things before
I just uninstalled the game when I got this, should have checked out the forum first, but to be honest, encountering problems so early in the game does not encourage one to stick with it, I can get stress anywhere

I tried to open it on my Windows 7 and it said "Play Again" and when I clicked again on play it said another game was already running. If you get this fixed can you still sell it to me for the $2.99 Daily Deal price?

The game looked like a lot of fun and facts but after more than a year and there is NO WALKTHROUGH, I am doubtful if I will ever be able to play the game.

Well, that was SCARY! Downloaded the DD and it seemed to be working OK. Phone rang, and I wanted to stop the demo so that I wouldn't waste the time I had left. When I tried, my screen first went blank and then I got a message (whole screen) that said my computer needed to be shut down as a major threat had been detected and could harm my computer!!! Hit the button on my computer and shut it down with other programs still running. NOT GOOD!

It came back up OK, but the first thing I did was delete this game!!! I have always had good luck with BF games, and when something went awry, they always lent prompt assistance. Don't think I even WANT assistance with this one. Maybe they should reissue it when they have the bugs worked out.

Oh well. There are plenty of other good games. Think I will go investigate those instead!!!

I couldn't get this to work on Windows 7 so I downloaded it to my laptop which runs Vista sp2 and it worked. So I set the compatibility to Vista sp2 on my windows 7 desktop and it ran. You have to find the exe file that runs the program to do this and right click on it and choosing properties and then compatibility, dropdown to vista sp2. Perhaps someone better at directions can post directions. I just wanted to let everyone know it is possible to run it on Windows 7 with a little tweeking.

Sadly, even though I got it to work on Windows 7 when I came back to it it did not save the game. I'm with the others who said get it fixed and offer the special price and I'll buy.
Too bad it looks like an interesting game.

Wish I had read all this earlier. Just downloaded w/o playing trial and game will not open tells me "out of range". Have had this problem with other games but always caught before buying. Have tried multiple ways to get them to play and it just is not worth it. Sad.... Looked interesting. must remember....always try it first.....lol.

I am also running Windows 7 - game will not start for me either. Even though it was the daily deal, can I get my money back or can someone fix the game so it runs under Windows 7?
