How to exit the game?

[Post New]by FritzBear on May 4, 15 2:05 AM
I must be quite in my dotage, but I was not able to find the way to go back to the menu to close the game, I had to force it to close though my computer. I'm sure there is a way to exit, but I didn't find it. Shame on me . All help is welcome

Same problem, can't find the way to exit. Love the game but not buying unless I can close it without hard boot to my computer.

My, that is frustrating! Here's how:

Click on the button with || in the upper left corner. In the pop-up window, click on the 'house' button in the lower left corner. On the main screen, click on the 'X' in the upper right corner. That will exit the game.

What DK says. Eventually you can quit Avalon (or any Windows app) by pressing ALT and F4 at the same time.

Thanks for the tip, alt F4 didn't work either nor ctl alt del, the || are only there in the actual card hand, not the town.

Thank you for your prompt reply. All the people in Big Fish forum are always so kind!
Actually it was not easy to find the way to exit the game.
As Nyphtes rightly pointed out, it's possible to find the || only in the actual card hand. Once one knows it, no problem, but finding the little trick...augh...it wasn't too easy.
Thank you again to everyone.

Didn't see the symbol in the left corner, had to use Ctrl Alt Delete to exit.

In this game, you can only exit from the solitaire screen itself, not the map or the building scene.


Right clicking on the Avalon Icon in Windows doesn't work for me. It works on everything else I have tried it on, but not this game. I used Alt. Control Del. and got out, but then came to the forum to see what I was missing.

I used to design roads and an important part of that was driver expectation ~ putting signs generally in the same place so folks know where to look for them. This game doesn't meet this player's expectations for how to exit!

Thanks so much - I had decided to buy the game until I couldn't get out!! I had to use Task manager, so thank you for your clear directions. As someone else has said, the forums are so helpful. I have never had this trouble before, so it is something the developers need to look at - no-one enjoys feeling "intellectually challenged"!

Hi everyone,
I apologize for making it complex. I never thought it would be an issue. We will add exit button in settings in the updated version.

cheers
Roman

You're not alone.... I must be a bit dense too. I could not exit the game without using Ctl. Alt. Del. I'll go try again.

Roman thank you for responding and for a future fix, I also came to the forum because I couldn't find an easy way to exit the game.

This doesn't show on the map or the town scenes. It only shows when you enter a game screen, when the cards are dealt. It's the first symbol on the left at the top and looks like II in green.

Click that, then click the house icon and this takes you back to the main menu where there is a large red cross on the top right which you click to exit the game.

I'm glad to hear they will address this in an update. Aside from the exit button being difficult to find, it takes far too many clicks to get out of the game.

If I finish a hand and decide I'm done, I have to click to the town, click again to the map, then click for a game, click on the "pause" button to get the main menu, click the home icon,on the main page click the "x" and then click again answer the ever-annoying "do you really want to exit?" That's seven clicks just to get out of the game. It really ought to be possible to exit from the town, the map or the game screen.

I am so relieved to know that I am not alone in not knowing how to remove myself from the environs of Avalon! lol I kept looking for a way to exit when the scene showing the town was on the screen. (The issue did not come up when I played the demo because I played until the time ran out.)

To my befuddled mind, it didn't make sense to start a hand when I needed to leave. I thought perhaps Mallard had cast a spell and I would not be allowed to leave until I had restored the entire kingdom!

Hi everyone,

I'm so sorry to hear that players are still having issues exiting out of this particular game. Doesn't make things fun.

Good news! In a recent update, there have been extra exit buttons added to hopefully help resolve this issue. I'm going to include the link below for more information:

UPDATE! New version available for Avalon Legends Solitaire 2! May 11, 2015

I hope this helps! Feel free to PM any of the moderators if you have any questions.

I followed the directions and it shows no updates. Should I submit a ticket or ? Anyone else have this issue? Even though I've exited several times I never seem to be able to remember. Senior moment no doubt. Thanks!

Hello

You must update it by your self. Only search in the creator's name, this will take you to their website. Get in touch with the creator there, (he wrote a post above, by the way) you can either send private message to me or the Creator above. The game will not work until you arranged it with him because bfg will not update it.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to remind everyone that the developer has only provided one update to this game, which was made available on May 11, 2015. The only difference with the update was extra exit buttons, as Roman_ANAWIKI confirmed. The details for that update are here:

UPDATE! New version available for Avalon Legends Solitaire 2! May 11, 2015

If you've installed the game after the date above, it means that you already have the latest version of the game installed.

We always do everything we can to ensure to that all available updates are provided to our players. However, any and all updates are given to us at the developer's discretion. To date, we have not received any additional updates from the developer.

We do not recommend downloading any game updates from any other site, even the developer's site. This is because we cannot guarantee that updates obtained from other sites will be compatible with our version of the game.

If the developer does provide us with another game update, we will most certainly post it in this forum right away.
