This is what I found in the read me file of this game, I know it explains one of my problems (firefox),which I tried closing but it did not help. Maybe this will be of help to other fishies having problems.

I had problems opening the game from the BFG console too. But I tried accessing it through the folders and clicking Dying_for_daylight.exe and the game worked.

You guys might want to try it.

I'm in blood alley and can't get my cursor to change to the Vampire Powers cursor in order to click on the dumpster. I've clicked all over the dumpster and gotten nothing. I'm stuck! Can anyone help me with this?

I run Windows 7 Pro and had no trouble with the download and play. Where I ran into an issue was on the very last cutscene that shows the showdown with the evil Vamps and the 'plague' rat being used.

That slowed down my entire computer to such a degree that I couldn't Skip out of it. The audio dialog played first then each snapshot achingly slowly came into view and crawled to its place on the screen. Took close to 5 mins for the whole thing to play out before I could can out of the scene and end the game.

Are you there the first time or the second? It won't show on the dumpsters until the 2nd time.

I was moving through the game with no problems and got to the scarab circus and my game went a little crazy. The last word of the sentence she was saying kept repeating like a broken record. I tried ctl-alt-del and it still wouldn't shut down. Had to shut it down at the tower. I guess I spoke to soon in the stray souls forum about games with no glltches.

Hi minnielou,
Did you by any chance have any programs running in the background on your computer? Anti-virus trying to update? Open Web Browser? Anything else updating? This is often the cause of the problem that you describe because this program uses a lot of computer resources to play.

Buggy. The first time I downloaded it,it took an hour. The second time it installed fine. First time it crashed bad. Now after the first hidden object scene it freezes. I wouldn't pay money or a credit for this mess. It's not Big Fishes fault. The developer usually makes good games. This is an abortion of a game.

I couldn't even get to the Play page! I hit the Play Now button and got the UNPACKING RESOURCES box and then absolutely NOTHING. I had to use the computer Task Manager to get away from it. Am I doing something wrong?

I was able to download it no problem. I can't however load it again after it locked up. The game locked up, so, I closed it, now, it won't open again. Problem is, I've bought it, now I won't be able to get past episode 2.

Took forever to 'unpack resources' and then it locked down my computer!!! Both are a first for me here at BFG. No sale here.

Same thing here. Yet another no play, no buy, no fun trial. Does Big Fish even HAVE a Q.A. team? This is getting tedious.

Hi fishies, I downloaded the game without any problems, but the cursor is so slow. I had difficulties getting out of the game. wish we could change the cursor. If it stay that way it will be a no buy for me. I tried to download another game and had problems with that game also. it makes it hard to buy games lately. hope we will be able to download games without problems soon.

Plus dreadfully slow loading each time you have to switch locations, very slow cursor, some hotspot issues.
Too bad, as the game in itself was interesting.

Access Violation on chapter 2, even tried disconnecting from internet turning off everything on the computer apart from the processes needed to run computer and still same problem, and very bad lag between scenes, worked fine in the demo but now bought the game teh problems started, wont get the credit back that is for sure. happening in to many games, and other games with problems on trail period and then tried downloading from author site or another site that sells the download and then the game works with no problems.

Looks like I need to start shopping elsewhere for my games
