Hi,

I purchased two games: Elixir of Immortality and Salem Witch Trials the other day.. while the first runs without any problems .. the second doesn't save!

I tried re-downloading the game and installing it again but it doesn't solve the issue. It doesn't save my player.. The list is always empty and I can only create a new one.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Okay here's a good one for you. . . This happened just today the 30th of July 2010. . . .



I get a Lua error when I try to fill the pen at the very begignning of the game. I'm no technical expert and do not understand the written:

MM2Engine/Thread.lua51:MM2Engine/Traits/MM2UserInout.lua:154:attempttocallmethod'ShedTools'(anilvalue)

It meansnothing to me. All I tried to do is take the pen and fill it from the inkpot. I'vedone an uninstall/install and get the same thing. I've tried three times and nothing but lock up.

If this doesn't get fixedd I'd like my money back! No sense in paying for a game I can't play. . .

game played great second time of starting it until the dreaded lua error and complete lock up. after repeated attempts got task manager up and stopped game. will try to play again tomorrow and see what happens. really liked the game up to this point. update... they must have fixed whatever bug. downloaded much later and has worked perfectly.

I'm wondering the same thing. I have made several players and every one of them has been gone when I return to the game after closing it. It is not saving the players or their progress in the game.

How can you save the game if you can't even save the players?


Has there ever been an answer to this one? It's seriously ticking me off!!!

Purchased the game just this week. Successful installation took a couple of tries, game runs smoothly; however, game no longer auto-matically saves ever since i replaced the trail version with the full version. Help?

I have been waiting for an answer too! It seems they do not know and I for one will not purchase another thing until this is resolved. The game is a waste of time and effort.

I've made it MUCH farther than that, and it's really annoying to have all your work disappear like that. There doesn't seem to be any way to save your games - can someone point me in the right direction?

Uninstalled the game as it froze (this is quite a while ago, bought the game when it was issued) near the end of it. Reinstalled it and tryed to play today : even better, I can't even pass the first scene (after finding all the objects of the list). Makes me really cross. Has anything been done about this game ?????

I am having an issue with picking up an item from inventory that can not be used but then I can't get it back in inventory. It is stuck on my cursor and I can't move on. I tried exiting the game and going back in but it brings me right back to where I was with the item still on my cursor. I have tried right clicking, clicking in the inventory area to no avail. Please help!

I just experienced the lua error mentioned above, when you try to get ink for the pen from the inkstand in the opening scene. What I was doing was picking up the pen and clicking on the inkstand, and that was causing the lua error message and the lockup of my computer. After this happening twice, the third time I clicked on the inkstand without holding the pen while doing it, and the game proceeded normally. The trick is to just click on the inkstand with your mouse; don't pick up the pen and then try to do it.

I cann't save this game up to what I have done.

It worked fine at the begining up to where a girl says to find a book in the custom house.
After that, no matter how far I get in the game, when I leave and come back, I am back to the find a book quest.

Exactly the same problem here. Tis very annoying

I noticed they seemed to have a fix on GameHouse however it only appears to be for downloads from that site. To be fair it doesn't help me anyway as I bought it on CD, I ideally need a patch :/

Well...

First the positive... The game has a great story line, and so far is pretty fun to play.

But... It won't save.

I suppose if I had come to the forums first, I could have saved the money and put it on another game. Unfortunately, I trusted the folks at Big Fish not to put up shoddy games and went ahead and bought it based on the trial game alone.

This definitely makes me shy away from any other "Midnight Mysteries" games.

Were this a regular video store, I would definitely be bringing this game back and exchanging it for another game... but it is not and I suppose I am stuck with this one.

My warning to anyone contemplating buying this game... DON'T!!! To those who, like myself, have already spent good money on a game you have to play straight through or risk losing... You have my sympathies.

In my opinion, Big Fish should remove this game until the issues are fixed, and offer those of us who have already purchased it either a free game to compensate the frustrations of this one... or the opportunity to exchange this one for something a bit better constructed and designed.

I've been trying to download the trial of this game since it came out (June??), but every time I do, all I get is a black screen! Only when I get the Task Manager up do I see the 'Unhandled Exception' message.....

I came across the game again yesterday & was thrilled to see the 'new version available', but guess what? No difference!!!!

Come on BF - we KNOW you read these posts, so how about some real help, please?????
