I heard that last year the Halloween update didn't start util the 15th and ran until the 31st.
Maybe they have us just update ready?

Now I'm trying to remember because I was playing last year and I cannot remember if the Halloween update was loaded as early as this before it "triggered" the game. Wish my memory was better! You may very well be right!

They did not have us "pre-update" last year. We got notice of an update, and when we downloaded it and invoked the game, Halloween was there. Can't figure this one.

If I recall correctly at Easter when we did the update all it seemed we got was the hunter's house, and then later the Easter goodies were triggered without an update so am guessing that it was installed in the earlier update and triggered later? Can anyone confirm this, my memory isn't so good at the moment

On the main game page are new screen shots for Halloween, so this is definitely the update for Halloween.
Usually, these themed extras last for about 2 weeks, and since Halloween isn't for another 20 days, I assume that the Halloween theme isn't triggered for another 6 days or so.

Also, keine Panik auf der Titanic.

I changed my system's date to November 1 and nothing happened. Still no change from the previous version. I think it's some kind of a hiccup.

I noticed that we can no longer add items from the special collections to our Wish Lists...wish I'd spotted it before I removed a couple of Halloween items


I think the release days before an event is a move in the right direction...If any major glitches pop up, there may be time to fix them before the event occurs....

Did Ipad users get the update?

Hey there Everyone!

I have great news! After a bit of waiting, a new version of Found: A Hidden Object Adventure is now available on the website. This update includes:

- Halloween Content

This update should show up on the left-hand side of your Big Fish Games app under 'Updates.' If you're not seeing that, just follow the steps below:

1) Open your app and make sure you're signed into your account.
2) Click on the 'Options' COG on the top right-hand side of your screen.
3) Click on the 'Downloads' tab.
4) Select 'Manually' and click 'Check For Updates.'

If you are still running into issues after installing that update, please contact our Tech Support Team so we can look into those.

Thank you again for your patience everyone!

I posted this in the Halloween thread, thought it might pertain here also....

I went into my game folder, and looked around. And I did see some new Halloween related items

I looked in: Found-A hidden object adventure\assets\game\item\misc

The black lollipop is still there from last year, that's the only thing from then.

New: Burning Candle- A gold hand with candles for fingers
Guardian Witch- What looks like a necklace pendant w/ a green stone
Lollipop- An orange melting pumpkin
Magic Hat- A Blue witch's hat

To EwaZofia:

You might want to try a date like October 20th. November 1 is, technically, AFTER Halloween, and the special would probably have ended at midnight.

I use my computer part-time for some free-lance work, so I'm not free to play with the dates.

Since we have to play online now, changing the dates will not work.

~Gamejack, they aren't showing in game, just that they were installed on our PC's with the update. Will be triggered into play when the date they set up arrives.

I now realise that my game doesn't minimize itself anymore, this used to happen even when I was playing HO scenes. Now I haven't had that trouble (know on wood)

Hi there everyone,

I just wanted to stop and help to sort out what's going on with the Halloween content that we mentioned with this recent update.

While the Halloween content has been added, it will be released in the game very soon. So be sure to continue playing to help keep an eye out for when it's released.

bfgLianorm


this was in a different thread just thought u all would like to see it so we will have to wait for the date not sure when that will be but i think it will be about the 16 oct

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to swim by and let you know that additional information for the recent update has been added.

We just found out about a few more fun things with this recent update, so you'll want to be sure to check the New Update thread to see what else has been added.
