I can't get the puzzle parts to move into the bottom puzzle. The cursor rides in the center of the part and as I try to place the bottom piece it sticks too high in the puzzle. Anything I do to try to move that part down simply moves me into the nest area.

I know that I can just skip this puzzle but I figured it out and want to WIN!

I bought the game tonight after playing the demo a while back. I'm having the same problem with the 'Letter P', it just won't let me have it. Plus, it took a long time for the game to load, a problem I haven't had with other games. I don't know what to do, I'm still new around here.

I have entered the number 14 mailbox and it asks me to use the wooden block...
I already used the wooden blok earlier in the game in the same puzzle, so i no longer have it in my tools. I can't exit the puzzle at all to either find another wooden box or try something else. and when i turn off the game and turn it back on again i'm stuck in the puzzle with no possible way out! help. i just bought this.

I am at the HOG where you can't click on the "", but even though I have tried about a hundred times, it won't let me light the candle. Since I can't light the candle, I can't use it on the spider web. I'm stuck.

I am having the same problem, thank goodness it was only the free trial. I have a mac bk pro 10.6.8 version and I regularly update it. Restarted the computer, but still sticking. I was enjoying it despite the cliches, but I wont be buying it, cliches are frustrating.

Played the game once all the way through and loved it. When I tried to play again, the chutes and springs on the city gate were stuck and could not be moved. I turned to tech support and we tried several different things, but we could not resolve the problem. I do give props to BFG for trying so hard to fix the problem. Too bad it didn't work out for this game.

Hello - I purchased the Standard version of this game in November 2011 and was able to play for a while and saved the game. The next day, I received an error which prevented me from playing this game. After deleting and reinstalling the game, I still got the same error. Luckily, the help people were nice enough to give back my 1 credit that I used. Still, I really liked this game and was wondering if anyone knows if this game has been updated or anything like that so I can buy it again.

In the unlimited version, if I choose custom cursor, it shows both the custom and system cursors. But if I choose system cursor, I don't get the special effects that help you know where to click to progress in the game.

While making the acid, I messed up and put the wick on the jar before I put the alcohol in. Now I can't move the alcohol or remove the wick.

Hi
Never had to do this before so not sure if this is the right place to put this...

I am playing the above game (Premature Burial) and in chapter 4 on the hidden object scene it will not me select the letter P although the hint keeps telling me it is there, it also will not let me use the lighter to burn the cobwebs and then get access to the acorn.

I have exited a few times, checked my pc is up to date but no joy so far, therefore although I don't want too I am going to restart the game from the beginning and see if it still does this.

I have played this before (a while ago) on the same PC and it worked fine so I am not sure why it is doing this now, I did update my java today but it has still been working fine up until this point, would that affect this ? (Its the only change I can think of that has been made)

Any help or fix for this would be great as I really enjoy these games by ERS, well thought out, great stories, great graphics and good puzzles too.. looking forward to playing some of your new releases when you get round to bringing some new HO's out

Thanks

Can't find the dust rag to wash the windows with. No HOS came up after I filled the bucket. What can I do?
