Menu Button

[Post New]by dzinr38 on Jan 4, 14 4:00 PM
Has anyone had issues with the Menu button? I click on it and nothing happens, so I have no way to quit out of the game. I would appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

I had the same problem. I did the old ctrl-alt-del trick and did an 'end task' from the task manager. I restarted the game and it went back to the same place (whew) and the menu button worked after that.

Very odd. I'll try that and see if it works. Thank you!

I tried your suggestion of ctrl+alt+delete and ending the task, then restarting the game, but it didn't work.

Hopefully, someone has a fix for this. I'm assuming this should work fine on Windows 8.

Any suggestions?

It's working now. I did an update to my graphics card and restarted my laptop, and now the menu seems to be working!

I did the same as you did in regards to the graphic card update. And I un-installed my game manager and then re-installed due to now running Windows 8.1.
It now seems to run fine.

By the way, did you have developer come up in your profile when you where trying to enter a profile?

I don't think I had a developer come up.

Well, the issue came back just a little while ago and I had to force quit the game again. UGH. It's very frustrating.

Also, I did not uninstall the game manager, as I didn't want to lose all the games that were loaded into it. If I uninstall and reinstall, will they automatically come back, or will I have to go download them all again? I didn't want to have to do that.

dzinr38, your complete history will re load when you un-install and re-install the game manager.
Whew' I just went and checked as I wasn't sure after you asked!
Thank goodness, huh?

I have been having the same problem with the menu button, and my profile is "Developer" and now my hint button does not seem to work. Getting a little frustrated at this point almost want to delete the game. Come on Big Fish fix the problem

Weird how your profile is developer, Kayen59. I may try CiChDa's suggestion and uninstall and reinstall the game manager and see if that fixes it. I'm frustrated with it, as well, and do not like having to force quit the game each time. UGH

dzinr38, just wanted to come back in and say it didn't last....once I excited I lost my ability to use the menu....

So, to all of you, my fix was short lived.

As I said, I sent in a Dr Felix report and now have deleted the last two CE's offered due to not being able to play them.

Thanks, CiChDa, and let me know what they come back with. It would be nice to be able to play the game and not have to force quit out of it every time.

Hi, I had the same problem with the menu button, on a Mac. My profile was Developer, too. Creating a new profile didn't work.
What did work, strangely, was deleting the Develpoer profile. Result: no profile at all, not a single menu button. After forcing the game shut and opening it again, I was able to create a new profile and delete the Developer.
Now the menu button works (hope it lasts), I 'just' have to start right at the beginning of the game, again.

Yes, I had the same problem. Being on a Mac, I had to click on Option/Command/Esc to force quit the game.

If you are on a PC, I don't know what path you would follow to force quit the game.

Not a big problem for me, but certainly an inconvenience.
