FLICKER

I loaded this game onto my pc and when I go in to play it it flickers. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still does it. What can I do?

I'm relieved to hear that I'm not the only one with this issue.

Same here! Did anyone figure out how to fix it? I'm very disappointed.

I had played this game previously on my Vista laptop without any flickering effect.

I now loaded it on my Win8.1 laptop to replay it (to try to get gold in all levels) and I am experiencing the flickering effect, too. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it as an Administrator, but that made no difference. Nor did running the Compatibility Troubleshooter.

Just to update:

I downloaded the trial version of the game from the developer's site (****) and tried that - same flickering problem. Uninstalled it.

I downloaded a version of the program from the dark side and tried that - same problem. Uninstalled it.

I wrote to the developer and asked if they were going to update the game so that it is playable on Win 8. If I get any response, I'll post it here. I did notice that on their new website under their games listing they have a separate breakout for Win 8, so maybe people have been reporting problems with other of their games.

Here's the response I received from the developer:
Hello! Thank you for your feedback! Our gamedesigners are pleased to hear that. Hoverever we agree that there are some technical issues as well. We will let our QA team know that there is a problem with Adelantado 1 on Windows 8. Thank you!

Thanks everyone for posting as I am having the same problem. I downloaded Book 2 no problems as I thought I might not have the right software to support this game but now I know the problem is windows 8 how do I find out when they have fixed this problem?

Do you have any idea when this problem will be fixed? I would like to play the game but I won't buy if it keeps flickering

Hi,
Yes - I am getting exactly the same problem with playing this game in Windows 7.

This seems to have been a problem for some time now, and it really should have been fixed by now. What is Big Fish doing to get this resolved? !!

There does not seem to have been any response at all from the support team!!

I'm cross-posting this here and in the Tech thread since it addresses the same issue:

I posted a follow-up question on the developer's FB page re the problem with the flickering and here's the response:

The issue is problematic and it is hardly possible to fix. Sorry




So it looks like Win8/8.1 people are out of luck for trying to get this game to play on their computers.

I have Win 8 and it plays just fine. I bought it a year or two ago but I just downloaded to my new computer in June.

I just purchased this game (2/21/2015) and can't play it because of the flicker. Two questions: has anyone figured out how to stop the flickering? And why is BigFish still selling the game if it is defective? They could put a warning that it is not compatible with Windows 7, 8, 8.1, etc.

Hi everyone,

I was splashing along the pond and came across this thread. I'm so sorry to hear that when trying to play this game, it tends to flicker. Definitely doesn't make things fun.

It may be helpful to contact our Technical Support Team with a Dr. Felix Report/ They will be able to help troubleshoot the flickering display issue.

Since this sounds like a tech issue, we do ask that they be placed in the Post any Adelantado Trilogy: Book One technical issues issues here only Forum page.

Thank you for your understanding! Since this issue has been addressed, I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread.

I hope this helps!
