Windows 7 RC and Yard Sale Hidden Treasures Games

[Post New]by davidnp on May 17, 09 3:30 PM
It installs fine, however when trying to play it doesn't recognize that Windows 7 is greater than Windows 98 SE and will not run. So far, trying the compatibility mode hasn't worked.

The writers need to fix their code for both games.

So far, the other games from other companies are working fine.

Any news on fixing this game for 7?

And is there really any reason anymore to do a code check for the windows version number and disallow the running of the game due to it's version check? Pretty lame coding really. But judging from the other problems this game is having maybe it just fits their style.

Yard sale hidden treasures cannot work on Windows 7. I have been told by BFG that the developer is working on the problem and they will post to this forum when it is corrected.........however since your questions were back in June of 09 and it is now the end of February of '10 I am guessing it is not going to get fixed anytime soon. Customer service provided me with coupon codes to replace these two Yard Sale Hidden Treasure games with others so you may want to contact them and you can get something else. I have well over 100 of their games and operating on Windows 7, these two are the only ones I have had a problem with.

Do you happen to know who the developer of these games is? I'd like to follow up with them directly. See what they have to say about it.

Thanks.

The developers are Slapdash Games. I have emailed them, but they don't seem to have any contact info other than employment and press, but i gave it a shot anyways.

I can not believe I paid for a game that will not work on Windows 7 !!

Why didn't I get a warning about games not working with Windows 7. Other companies give warnings.

Are there any Big Fish games that will work with Win 7?

severma22, I've bought many other games from this website and this game is the only one that wouldn't work. You have an option to try a game for an hour before purchase - I ALWAYS try before I buy just to avoid any possible disappointments. I suggest you do the same. Yard Sale Sunnyville is available from Steam [removed by moderator] and I purchased it from them long before I discovered this website and it was a blast. Didn't have any problem playing it with my windows7 pc. Anyway, good luck and don't give up! Just, again, try before you buy!

I purchased this game when I was running XP. Now I am running Vista and Windows 7. It definitely will not work on W7, very frustrating, but DOES work on VIsta. I am hoping the developers at Slapdash get this fixed soon!!!!! BFG should also be following up with the developers on behalf of the members how have purchased it!

I am having this very same problem. I love these yard sale games and haven't been able to run them with Windows 7. I can run it in Vista. But it does not like 7 one bit. Help as soon as anyone can.I miss my yard sale games.

Having the same problem. I have Windows 7, 64 bit. I installed the demo tonight and tried to run it and got some pop up message saying my system must be at least Windows 98. That made me laugh. Out loud. LOL

I'm having the same problem. I'm kind of concerned as the first post about this was done on 5/17, and this is 12/13 with no resolution.

Anyone figure out how to fix this?
