I have emailed PF and BFG but still can't play in wide screen..It's not much fun playing a game with black on both sides..especially when you buy the collector's edition..I almost finished the game..I emailed BFG before the game was released so i would have the problem fixed..but it's not.


It's not a problem -- some games are not set up to play in wide screen. Some developers offer the option in set up, some games detect you have wide screen and stretch the game to fit, some games detect and provide true wide screen.

I'm getting kicked out of the game at the end. After completing all tasks, I fuel up and set the coordinates for Wish. As soon as the ship fires up I am kicked completely out of the game. If I go back in, I have to refuel and reset, then it kicks me out again. Because of this, I cannot get to the bonus level.

UPDATE:

I went through the game again as a new user and this time I was able to complete it and go through the bonus level. I was also able to go back to the original user and complete that too after the second try.

Additional - The ending for the bonus level gives no clue that you are done with it. You really should give the user some clue that it is complete.

Same thing with me.... when I try to go upstairs I go to black.... I've uninstalled, reinstalled, all I can do and I keep getting the same error at the same point. Did Tech. get back with you?

How does one get back to the air ship from the clock makers frozen castle. The online walk through just says to return to the air ship. The walk through that is part of the game has a blank page where is should say how to return. Thanks.

Aaahhh -- finally, a rare hour without children; I figure I'll dive in to a new game.
Oooh, there's a new Dream Chronicles game -- I've GOT to DL the trial (though since I have all the others, it's pretty much a sure buy).
I notice it downloads awfully quickly, then notice in "My Games" that there are 2 updates available for games I already own... Ok, they're for the original Dream Chronicles and DC: The Chosen Child. Cool; maybe they've added something to them or some reference to the new one? So I click on them and once the updates download, what do you know! Now it says I no longer own either of those games!
And where oh where has my DC: The Book of Air trial version gone?? Just where it says, into thin air! I don't see it anywhere and never even got to open or play it...
Any suggestions, fishies?? Thanks!

Similar problems here. Windows 7, ATI Radeon HD5700 (4/6/2010), 2772 MB. BigFish, why don't you tell potential purchasers when your new games require the absolute latest drivers? Mine's three months old and needs replacing? I purchased a card for gaming, brand new computer, and the game won't display? And yeah, I looked for updated drivers - still didn't fix the problem.

Would love to purchase this game, but can't even try it out. I've downloaded other games with no issues, FYI.

Hmmm...I bought the CE & played fine till I realized in using the Strategy Guide that the game had gone from the first visit to the Clockmakers home to the Tree House village then directly BACK to the Clockmakers...missing or skipping all of the in between. I was like...Wind Music???? WHAT Wind Music???? It took me to The Final Door..soooo even tho I bought the CE I kinda think I d/l the $6.99 version
Anyone else experience this?

Sadly, no. This game has a lot of problems. Currently I can't get the blue stone tablets to 'take' in the music columns, and they don't revert to plain stones the way they're supposed to. The fairy letters are so difficult to 'read' (very similar in shape and form), and you have to close the book each time you turn the tumblers to change the letters on the metal drums. Another glitch is, when you click "Close" on the book, you automatically pick up one of the items in your inventory as the book closes, because your cursor translates to the inventory list.

I've experienced problems with the reference guide, the game not opening, delayed sounds, and now I'm stuck in the game with no way to fix the blue stones. I think the writing is on the wall: never buy a new game. Wait until the next version comes out and the bugs are ironed out!

Every time you set coordinates and refuel, it tells you that it needs to be done and you can't leave until you do it all over again, sometimes more than once. The only time it worked right was the first time. The music scores are the same way...kept finishing it and having to redo it. Huge waste of time. The strategy guide has major chunks of info missing as it runs off the bottom of the page...on multiple pages. That is certainly not worth the extra $13. This was my first CE and I am very disappointed. Loved this series and this game did not live up to them, both technically and from a gaming perspective.


I have tried eight times now, to put fuel in and set the coordinates. When I pull the lever it always says "the airship is not ready...." I have tried restarting the game, no help. I even started a new player, get here, and stall.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Anyone have any trouble with this game shutting itself down during the trial period? Everytime I try to play, it shuts down. It says I still have time left in my trial but it keeps shutting down. I used to really love to play games on BFG but I'm starting to think maybe I'll just cancel my membership and go elsewhere. I've had just about enough of these games not working right and all BFG tells you is the same old thing - check to see if this or that is updated. Well, they need to check and make sure they are updated!!! I think most everybody would agree that BFG needs to take some responsibility with the games they are putting out and not just assume that the problems are all on our end!

I am stuck in the Crater of Time and can't get off the ground to go to Treehouse Village. I did the reveal/map things to get the coordinates; went to the fuel gauge and dropped the stones in; used up all the stones and the fuel meter shows through; pulled the lever and get that maddening message "the ship is not ready - needs fuel and proper coordinates."

I have tried about 20 times; closed the game down three times, and have done everything but reinstall the game. I can't do anything about the fuel gauge - all the stones are used and it is showing full. I've reset the coordinates a dozen or more times. This is SOOOOOO frustrating.

I'm going to have to start from scratch and waste my valuable time. If it fails again, I'll ask for a refund, or three game credits.
