Hi Everyone,

If you are having problems getting the game to work correctly, we highly recommend going to our Help pages. Using our Help pages is always the quickest way to get technical problems resolved. Here are a few suggested articles that have helped many people correct these types of problems in the past:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen
Game Compatibility

While we can offer a known solution for technical issues in the Forums, or other tech savvy pond residents can swim by with good tips and suggestions, we cannot provide the same excellent level of support provided by our Customer Support team.

The Forums are not very well suited for the kinds of information gathering and troubleshooting that get these types of issues corrected quickly.

If there is a problem with the game, our Support Team can also gather necessary information on what types of computers are being affected by the problem and deliver this information to the developer for a fix.

If you are not able to get a game working properly using our Help pages, please get in touch with our Customer Support team, you can find a link to contact our Support team on the front page of our Help pages.

When posting in this thread and also when contacting our Support Team, it would be helpful if you could state what system you are playing the game on (i.e. PC, MAC or Mobile), so we can provide you with the appropriate support as quickly as possible.

*Finally, please reserve this thread for tech issues only. If you are seeking game play assistance (i.e. hints and tips), the best thing to do is to start a new thread in the game's Forum by clicking on 'Create New Discussion.'

The Bonus game crashes the game every time when loading is at 15 or 16%!

I'm on a MacPro running Yosemite.

I am having issues with the HOP not activating in the strategy room. Once I placed the second door handle it flashed and returned to the game but I can't get back to the HOP or get the shield.

I have a PC. The demo version loads all right. But I cannot open it to play. Anyone else have this issue. I have windows 7. Thanks

Weird stuff happening in Princess Daphne's Room. When I click the statue in the center, the screen goes kind of dim, like when you're looking at an inventory item, but nothing shows up. Does that make sense? Anyway, I checked the guide and it says that there's supposed to be like a close-up in the frame. I just got the game and I've enjoyed it so far, but this thing is keeping me from getting an item I need to complete the game. If it were a bonus or something, I'd be content to wait it out.
I'm gonna try and do a system update (I'm not running Yosemite yet) and see if that helps. If not, then I'll be back to update this post.

To SubaruFrog!
Wondering if your problem is due to the old OS ?
There has been 4 releases since v10.6 (Snow Leopard) came out!

Both Mavericks & Yosemite are free!

Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard - 2009)
Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion - 2011)
OS X v10.8 (Mountain Lion - 2012)
OS X v10.9 (Mavericks - 2013)
OS X v10.10 (Yosemite - 2014)
-------------
Have had no gaming problem on my iMac 2011, running OS X v10.10 - Yosemite.

Game crashes when it hits 27% of loading on a Mac Book Pro running 10.8.5.

I guess no one thought to test this with a Mac Book Pro as so far there are reports of crashing with 4 different OS with this laptop.


swedane - There is a report of a MacBook Pro running Mavericks and one with Yosemite with the same issue, so it's not the operating system. Upgrading to Mavericks or Yosemite with also drastically slow down an older machine, so that should be approached with caution.

The same thing happens to me, when it hits 28% of loading the game crashes. However, I'm using a Mac Mini running 10.6.8 and not a Mac Book Pro. So maybe the problem is related to Macs in general...

Game won't install. When you select "install now" it opens the game manager but there is nothing there.

On a PC running Windows 8.

Exited the game, to take a break, and upon restarting got a message saying profile data was corrupt and game would start again at the beginning.

So sad. I was through to the fresh waterfall room with the pipe. I don't really enjoy repeating all that work and worry about exiting and losing my place again.

Running Yosemite on 2.8Ghz Macbook Pro

I am running Yosemite and the same thing is happening to me! The demo version worked well and I bought the game - now I cant move beyond because the screen freezes on this scene. Weird. Any help most welcome.

I have the problem of the screen dimming and then not being able to click on anything when I'm in the bonus game. Specifically, the skeleton with the shield in the Water Gate. I'm using Mac OS X Yosemite. Any suggestions? I can't proceed otherwise.

I'm having the same problem as fangmcgee. Game doesn't crash but the only thing you can do is navigate out of there using the map.

Yosemite, 3.06 GHz Intel, 8GB RAM, Safari 8 (Safari 4 is in game system requirements?)
