In this one, I cannot mix the last of the paints but was able to do this no problem in the CE. Given the problems everyone else is having, I think I'll just uninstall and not even bother. Unfortunate, because I really like this series.


Same problem....can't pick up the pestle to pulverize the last stone....does anyone have an answer for this....seems lots of questions here but no replies !!

I'm having the same issues. Any answers?

Had the same thing happen to me on 12/4, so I'm guessing no fix?!

Iv'e got the same problem, frozen on the 3 cats, had to use the 3 fingers to end task. This game has stuck twice before but after doing an end task I was able to carry on when I re-opened. I hope it does the same again!

The hand icon remains on when I move the cursor about the screen. It requires a Ctrl-Alt-Del to exit the game. When I restart the game I am not even returned to the spot where the game crashed...nor even to the spot where I started prior to the first crash, but to the spot when I first went underground.

The same crash has occurred at the exact same spot three times. Ergo, I am unable to proceed. As far as I can tell, the game cannot be completed. Very frustrating.


Unfortunately - snap!

I cannot get any further and have tried re-installing.

I have a similar problem at palette. I have blue rock in bowl, but it won't let me grab pestle to pulverize, but keeps telling me I need to pulverize first. Tried exiting and coming back, but stuck in same spot. I have red, yellow and orange paint, but without blue I can't go further

I had the Same problem of the game freezing when I assembled the lens in the monkey caves to clear the rats out of the way.
This is a long way through the level to have to redo.
Is there any chance of a better or repaired version of this game which seems to have been missed the checking process.

Thanks


I also had the Frog topiary problem but managed to finish the game so hopefully others will be able to as well. I don't know what worked exactly so I can't tell you the real fix for this unfortunately.

I uninstalled the adobe products (Flash and Shockwave) since these have given me problems in various games in the past, rebooted and reinstalled only the 32 bit versions for my Vista 64 machine. (I don't know if this game even uses these but they're mentioned in the technical help section, so ....)

I had to start again as a new player but chose 'casual' rather than 'difficult' in case a bit of code was snipped out for the 'difficult' level. No further problems at all. But I did make sure to check all blue light areas before leaving a scene. I can't remember if I saw them originally when the Frog topiary was freezing, but I certainly wasn't seeing them at all when the problem was occurring.

It's a bit frustrating starting again but at least the game lets you skip puzzles so you don't have to do them again if you don't want to.

You have to click on, say the tree, click to switch over to click on the saw etc.

Game freeze, right after putting the glass shred into the lens, try every way recommended, still don't work. Anyone have any suggestion?

I was thoroughly enjoying the game but now it simply refuses to load. It loads as far as 91% and then stops, no matter how long I wait (I had reached the episode after the "rats and cat" scene). A pity, but it just refuses to play.

I am also having trouble with the posters. When I colored the lamplighter, everything worked great, but when my daughter does it, it says that it still needs color (and it doesn't). Also, when I try to rub the paper against the rocks with the charcoal, the picture comes out but I am not able to retrieve the paper. It suggests that I use some charcoal to transfer the image. DUH! What do you think I just did?? Very frustrating if it doesn't get fixed soon--and I purchased this game!! What a bummer.

Great series. Love the pseudo 3D!!! However... One problem: How the text renders on the edge of the screen. It is cutoff. I cannot read the text that displays close to the edge in its entirety. I have attempted multiple screen resolutions to no avail. I also attempted adjusting the settings in my graphics drivers. (I am using a NVidia GTX 520 w/ up to date drivers and on DVI) Some of the settings I manipulated include, but aren't limited to: Aspect ratios, scale override, 16:9 and 4:3 in game aspect ratio adjustment, force full-screen from the program shortcut options, among others. I would greatly appreciate your effort in getting back to me about this issue if not addressing it head on. Thank you for your time and have a nice day.

P.S. I scoured Google and said forums with no luck so I hope its fixable on my end, however, the rest of the in game rendering (loading screens and menus do display correctly and don't "fall off" the screen) so it would seem that this is a hard code issue.

I am able to etch the one at the top of the mountain (by the old fireside) and the one by the windmills, but I cannot etch the one at the foot of the mountain (where the shield was). I can place the piece of paper and pick up the charred stick, but nothing happens when I rub the charred sticks across the paper. I've tried restarting the game, but it has still gotten stuck right at the point. I'm really enjoying the game and I want to keep going. Help!!



I have the same problem. Up til this point things were working fine, a little glitchier than the other Drawn games, but no real issues. Now i'm completely stuck. Very annoying.
