I see lots of folks are having problems with the scene with the 15 hooks. Same thing happened to me. No hook....backed out...screen went black except for the book and the hint box. Nothing I do turns the screen back on. I am very disappointed at the thought that I might have to start again! I played Salem Witch trials twice because of glitches...and I still was unable to end the game! Been to the "Help" page...everything on my computer is up-to-date. PLEASE GIVE US A FIX, BFG!

Too late .... I bought this game because it behaved perfectly during the trial & continued to work until I made the raft & crossed the river....I then made the mistake of looking at the strategy guide (should have looked at the forum first, judging from what I've just read...) & guess what....the **** curser froze
Looks like I'll be contacting the "Support team" AGAIN.... this is becoming something of a habit for me!
I would have thought that paying $20 would have made this game problem free BUT no such luck it would seem.
Very disappointing B.F.

I am able to collect 14 of the 15 hooks. the 15th hook is not where the walkthrough says it should be and when trying to leave that scene my screen goes blank. I am then only able to get out of the game by using task master. I uninstalled the game and then installed it again. Started the whole game over and when I got to that **** scene the same thing happened again. Please help! Thank you.


I'm having the exact same problem!

Sorry I can't help you with the rope as I can't get the dry twig leaf from the tree to be able to finish up mixing the potion in the pharmacy, to get to the raft and rope. But am posting to you, because you seem to have gotten past the pharmacy section, Can you tell me how you got the tree branch cut??? Am fairly new to all this gaming stuff, so any help will be appreciated, though so sorry I can't help you.

I know we should use the help pages, but am just curious if anyone else has had this strange issue. I'm probably 3 /4 thru the game and it, has worked great, now the screen is black with the exception of the menu and book, the inventory and the hint, but when you hit menu to get out it wont do anything. everything else is black...i did a reinstall of the game and a system recovery but same results. as far as I know my drivers are up to date. Thanks

Same problem as Glory7000. I beta tested this game and it worked great, no problems. So I brought the game, got to the scene to get the hooks and got all but one ; went to the guide to check where the last hook was located; came back to a black screen with the inventory drop down showing at the top of the page. Had to close game via Task Manager.

Hope this can be resolved shortly.

I give up. The game worked well in the one hour demo, but it has frozen three different times. My computer is COMPETELY compatible for this game. Twenty dollars is an awful lot of money to just waste. I had to c/a/d and when I went back to the game it was still frozen. I have even deleted the whole thing and restarted a new game twice. I should have just waited until the game came out without being a collection edition. I have never done it before and definetly wont be doing it again. The heck with this. I am sick and tired of it. This really ticks me off. I am DONE w/ BFG.

Since so many of us are having the same problem with the hook scene it must be a glitch in the program.

Also I had stated a black screen with drop down inventory; the book and hint
button are showing along with inventory in the middle.

I gave up playing in regular mode due to the cursor freezing. I started the game from scratch in advanced mode and the cursor works fine.

However, I took the precaution before going in to the Strategy Guide to completely exit the game. Opened the game again and then went into the Strategy Guide. Found what I wanted then exited right out of the game. Opened the game and carried on playing right to the end without any further problems.

It's a laborious way to go about things I know, but it does work.

I'm having the same problem! Quite honestly, I didn't even think anything about the hook scene until I started reading these posts, but I'm at the same spot. I also unintalled and reinstalled with no luck. I really liked the game up until that point.

BTW - I'm running Windows 7, 32 bit, but I don't think that's an issue.

I have faith in Big Fish - there'll be a fix soon!

Thanks!!!

Cat

Another one here who talked with the Tavernkeeper and then my mouse froze. Un- and then re-installed the game, rebooted pc, etc. No change.

SPOILER ALERT!!


I did not use the strategy guide. I simply had to get off the game for awhile. When I opened it back up, the cursor was frozen. I used options to change to the regular cursor and no change. I was at the part where we got caught by the witch and put into prison.

Why, why, why? Downloaded free trial - made it to the end of the 60min. then ACCESS VIOLATION - this is the second game with the same problem. If it was a $6.99 game, I would take the chance and purchase it, but not for a $19.99 game. Can't you try and give us two different collector's Edition games so that we can at least purchase one of them. Everything on my system is up to date, so it is not my computer with the problem. Also find out why so many Access violations are happening recently. Thanks

HELP!
Im having the same problem as Glory7000. I havent had any problems with the game until this issue and Im toward the end of the game! (grrrr) I get to the part where you need to collect 15 hooks and as soon as i get 14, the screen goes black. I had to control-alt-delete to get out of the game and now when I go back in, it takes me right back to the black screen. I was going to unistall and start over, (ugh) but read that it hasnt helped others. Same thing happens when they get to that level again..any suggestions??? I am very frustrated. Paid $20 for a game that looks like Im not going to be able to finish and I was so close....
Thank you in advance for any help anyone could give me...
Happy Gaming!
