Once I download Sinister City, it will not open. I've tried four times. Each time it won't open, I delete it, wait for a while and try again. So I guess I won't be playing this one.

I am not too disappointed as the game was not as good as I had thought earlier....... and it is short. I don't usually have problems with games freezing so I know this is "their" problem ( the developers ) and not my computer. Games that are well tested run flawlessly with no glitches or freezing.



hi there mhatfie i was just wondering you say you went back in to play the game but it froze & you couldnt continue then you say the game was short & not that good so does this mean you actually got to play the game? if so could you plz share what you did so i can try it while im waititng for cust. support & i'll probably just ask for a refund too many problems for too many people, just wish i knew before purchasing. i hope everyone gets their problem solved & if you can share mhatfie thank you in advance have a great day! duchess436

Same here trying to play demo on Mac. Guess this is another botched Mac game. Just glad I didn't buy it first. Will file tech ticket.

Error message at Chapter Two (?)--after the clock/mirror scenes

[Post New]by Zaitai on Oct 21, 10 6:37 AM
My game crashes after 30 minutes during the scene change. I get the game cursor, but "Click anywhere to continue" yields nothing. When I call up the Task Manager, the game shows an error message. I uninstalled and reinstalled, but the same thing happens.

For me, the hint system isn't working. It worked for the early part of the game, but now, it loads and looks full, but clicking on it does nothing. (I'm at the part of the game where I'm looking for the tripod, camera, and film right now, and simply cannot find the film ANYWHERE. The hints have been broken for a little while, but this is the first time it matters...)

Nearly at the end of this game and it causes an access error and hangs at the point of handing the Director the Clapperboards. ..... anyone else experiencing the same?

to be honest this just seems like a very buggy game indeed - who wants to go right back to the beginning when you're nearly at the end - its not exactly in the same class as "Drawn" this one - Sinister City is certainly the most buggy game I've ever purchased

I'm having trouble collecting the green tea bags in the doc's office. I click on the items that show up in red but the item doesn't move into my inventory. Any suggestions on how I can fix this issue?

I really don't want to be sorry that I brought this game. Thanks for helping me out.

I made it to the end (I think) but the game freezes at the "movie" made by vampire daddy at the quote along the lines of "Don't worry about that, our special effects guys will take care of that". Image frozen there and can't exit. Any one else?

Downloaded this game just fine, but when I went to play it, the screen was W I D E, and I could view only half of it. Unfortunately, the half with the settings that I was supposed to select it were on the other side of the screen that I couldn't see. I tried closing the game out and changing the settings on my screen under Display Properties several times to no avail. Pity, would have liked to have least played a demo on this one. Guess I will just uninstall and forget it. There are so many others to play anyway! Happy gaming, y'all!

Crashes at the same spot just after collecting the clapboards. Something about a video error.

That flickering cursor is really interfering with my enjoyment of the game. I almost always disable the custom cursor, but in this game you can't do that. I'm hating it so much, I'm thinking of asking for a refund.

Game loaded without problem, solved the clock puzzle and closed game. Decided to purchase so I went back in to check if progress was showing and the game loaded and I clicked to continue and game froze. Had to (alt, ctrl & delete) get back to Task Master to close. Got ACCESS Violation message. Will not purchase unless problems adressed.

I want to try this game, but the demo froze before I could hit play. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled but then I was told my time was up fo rthe demo. Hopefully the glitches are worked out soon. The reviews are so good I'd buy without trying the demo.

I get all of the crystals and swirly wheels for the hypnosis machine but then when I am transported and I click on the other section of the scene i get the dialog and then if I click on anything after that then the game crashes and closes. And I was actually liking this one. Please help.
