Hi grizzly3159,

There seems to be a problem a lot of gamers are having with the SG being missing. I just posted in another thread about this. I bought the full game and everything is where it should be for me, including the SG.

Perhaps there's some fault in it not showing in the demo. I'm playing the bought game on an old Vista computer without any problem at all.

There have been a few CEs which don't allow you to see the SG in the demo; I haven't been able to find it either.

No SG for me either, I've exited to menu but it's not there.

Would be the first time Dark Parables wouldn't put the SG in the sample offered to demo... so there's something wrong or Dark P aren't up to their, up to now, excellent reputation....

The SG is labelled Guide and is located above the RHS of the inventory bar. Your Tasks are on the LHS.
Cheers
Oops, seems there is no SG in the Sample version (tut, tut Blue Tea Games).

Unfortunately, the SG is not there for me. I wish I had a guarantee that the strategy guide would appear if I buy the game, but so far there doesn't seem to be one.

Maybe the SG is there for some and not for others, or it shows up after you purchase the game??? I don't have it in my demo. Glitch???

Hi guys,

All I can say, as I've said in the other thread, is that I bought the game, am playing it on a 7 year old PC I don't really bother updating, and I have the SG, map, objectives, Parable collectibles, cursed objects... the whole shooting match. It's all there.

Why not buy it if you really want it, and if you still don't have it in the paid for game, I'm sure CS will reimburse you.

I think it's simply not available in the demo, as cynththemoler points out.

Playing on an iMac, the GUIDE (Strategy Guide) is there in the demo.

I just finished the demo. It's labelled "Guide" and it's not that obviously placed, so I think some people may just be missing it.

It's above the Inventory towards the right side.

G'day,

I wanted to let you know that we're taking a look at this right now.

For those purchasing this Collector's Edition, you should find that the Strategy Guide is there once the full version is activated.

We'll do what we can to get to the bottom of what has happened to the guide in the Demo.

Ok, is it for sure the strategy guide will be there when buying the full version? What if not - will the buyer be reimcursed then?

I have all DPs and would love to have this one too. As such a strange "incompleteness" in the demo never happened in BT games, I am not so really convinced to buy without a correction.

I've always found that if there is a problem with a game, big fish will always refund. So even if you buy it and find out it is still not there, you need not be out of pocket.

Hey Tiger

You're right, there was no strategy guide in the demo
but there is one in the full version.

That map in the demo was useless for me.
I had to use the hint button when I was stuck.

ok, relying on your good advice and confiding BF as always - I will buy this game now.

Will see if there is a SG after all.....

I just purchased the game and there is definitely a STRATEGY GUIDE. You have to purchase first cause I didn't have a guide when I demoed.... Happy gaming

I have looked everywhere in the guide to find the Queen's cuff. It just says to put it on the queen, not where to get it. Bought this game and now very frustrated!

Hi there, BWR

I'm glad it's there for you now. About the map, I'm afraid it doesn't get much better in the actual game. It's confusing me also. Looks like I need to go down, down again and then left, except I end up somewhere completely different plus it's not a teleport map. That's a shame, but still it's a wonderful game and I'm continuing today.

Have fun!!

ETA: Congratulations on your morph to

Um, err, well, I hate to mention this, but it did say sample version and when it says that, not all the special features are available.
