7 Minutes of play time
Got to the letter for the book
Clicked on the letters, clicked on the book
Screen went to black.
Force close of the game through task manager
Re-opened
Same black screen.

Shame, I think I would have liked this game.

Downloaded with no problems. Upon trying to open the game, pc blue-screened and restarted. Same problem on second attempt. Deleted the game; no additional problems.

Memory is not an issue.

Ok- this is strange- I've been playing the game just fine, played thru the chapter with the dummy in the morgue and quit when it was time to color the sidewalk character- went back in today and it shows all my objectives completed, yet all the things I found during the chapter are back in the scenes, For example, I can see the dummy's parts in the scene, but he is completed on the table? What's up with this? Do I have to start all over, and will this happen again? I haven't read that anyone else is having this issue.

I could not get past the puzzle, as it gave me a violation error. Put the puzzle together 4 times and the last time I hit the SKIP button which gave me LOADING for a long time, as it got hung up. I too am having problems with new games lately. Too bad this one seemed like it would be fun.

Hey fishies!

We’re aware that some of you have been getting a black screen after trying to put the letters in the book, and we’re currently trying to gather as much information as we can about the types of systems that are being affected by this.

If you could please run a Dr. Felix report and then send that over to our Tech Support team, that would really help us out as we continue looking into this issue.

Thank you all for your patience, and if there are any updates on this issue, we'll be sure to let you all know.

Thanks!

I also keep getting a black screen & it freezes there, when I click on the books & click on the letters! Screen also looks small, & there are some DARK areas. That's a shame, as it looks like it would be a good game. I had plans of buying it until , of course, it froze up with the black screen. The only way out was ctrl/alt/del. Then when I tried to End it, it would not respond. Had to keep doing it over & over & over, until it finally ended. I tried several times, with same end results. It would be nice if they can fix this problem.

I am posting the answer I got from CS

[removed by moderator]


I have a Toshiba laptop that has an Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset for video display. It seems that I can not use the Intel driver update as the Chipset has been modified by Toshiba. This might help anyone else who is having an issue with the letters and the book. I will update as I get an answer from CS.

I am grateful that CS is willing to take the time to look deeper into my issue rather than giving me a generic answer. It is one of the reasons I stay with Bigfish.

Hello everyone,

A new build is now available that fixes the crash issue on Intel drivers and the fail screen problems.

If you would like this version, please uninstall and reinstall your game.

If you are still experiencing troubles after installing this build, please get in touch with Tech Support (you can click on this link) and our reps can help. Thanks!

Got an error violation crash about 3 mins into the game after finishing the first puzzle.

I reinstalled the new build but still get an error violation (crash) as soon as I finish the first puzzle.

Twice of this nonsense is enough, I'm done w/ this one. Trashcan it goes.
