I have been trying to download this game since 8AM and have had no luck. All that seems to happen is that a new Game Manager is downloaded, which I don't need as I have one that functions perfectly and then that's it.
What is going on here?
HELP!
Thanks,
Mary

Is there a forum yet for the New Game Manager? I am with everybody- I hate it!

I really like this game and will buy it. My game didn't take long to download once I GOT IT STARTED! The only thing I don't like is that we have to look for hidden parts of an object which means I will be using my HINT button a lot. The graphics are great and the details are great too.

The trial downloaded quickly but ,when I went to play, it froze my computer on the first scene. Guess this one is a no-no for me until the regular version comes out.

What's up?


I was hoping I wasn't the only one with this problem. Yeah, waited for the download/installation/activation and then BOOM - "Trial expired"???????

Mine downloaded fine but I had the same problem as Caput. Froze in the first scene and had to reboot computer. Shame, coz it looked like a nice game.

Just wanted to say that the download/installation/activation of the demo took me about a minute.

No problem with the down load but the cursor is all wonky...can't control it. The game itself is very slow. I am so disappointed!!! I was going to wait until August 1st to buy it since I already have 2 punch cards filled.....lately the best games have that wonky cursor!

Here's my story! I downloaded the trial just fine. Liked the game so decided to use my credits to buy it. Went to download and got the message for that BFG had to load a game manager stub. Up comes the awful new game manager, large screen, all the other games etc. I went to down load this new CE that I had bought. Every time after hours of downloading I went to play and it says ready to download or reactivating or some such message. I have tried downloading this game 3 times that takes a whole day and I still get the same message on my game manager "ready to download". And I see on my new monthly games that I have bought it! Please BFG fix this game manager. I am as frustrated as everyone else. thank you, exact

Hate the new game manager. Bigger is not better - this from a 68 year old. Give me the old one back, why fix what is not broken? I agree that some new kid on the block must have come up with the idea to show how smart he or she is - otherwise why change??

I downloaded the whole game (which took forever!), and when I went to activate it, it gave me this error: ERROR CODE 203600. I looked for this error code number, in the tech help section, but found nothing. Someone please help me. I just paid a crap load for this Special Edition, and I can't even play it... not cool. I even re-booted game manager thinking that would help, but nothing.

It finally activated! I don't know if this will help for you all, but it did for me. I logged out of my game manager, went on bigfish.com and changed my password, re-logged into my game manager with the new password, then hit the activation button and it activated immediately!

This is probably due to the new game manager sub. Give it a try, and let me know if it helped.

Thanks and happy playing! ;-))

I played the game for about an hour and a half last night. I opened the game this afternoon only to find that nothing was saved and it had started over from the beginning. I even had to make my player profile again.
