Read the walkthrough for cemetary. Says to use chisel to pry up brick and pick up metal peg. Screen showed brick loose on steps, picked up with hand - no metal peg. Unable to get any further in the game without peg. Help.

Three splash screens and no go. 60 minutes of game time remaining. Frustrating, just frustrating. Giving this game a boot to the trash can.

I am stuck in the hospital. I also have hourglasses that won't work even though I have the tools. I have some instructions that someone else prepared and it will now not let me follow that. I want my money back

Well the game finally worked on my wifes laptop (demo) and sincve she enjoys it, she asked if I'd buy it for her. Which I did, but it absolutely continues to crash and burn with the 3 spash screen and then back to the game manager on my machine, even after purchasing it and retrying it. I also wiped out all references to the game everywhere on my compouter, hard drive directories, files, registry references, all drivers up to date, all software up to date, but it just refuse to go past the 3 splash screens, blacks out, then back to BF Games Manager.

I have no idea what else I could try or do to make this game operate on any of the other computers it has been tried/tested on and does this. All Windows XP systems.

Odd that it started working on my wifes laptop because the first time through it didn't work and I've re-installed it at least 5 times on my system with no success of getting in and playing the game.

And with so many having issues, there HAS to be a problem in the games CODING SCHEME that is causing this loop back to the BF Game Manager and asking if I want to play again.

I've worked in IT areas, so with all the folks having this same problem, IT IS NOT THEIR COMPUTER, IT IS a PROBLEM WITH THE GAME ITSELF!

I too cannot get past the developers screens to get to the menu! I keep getting kicked out to the loader. Is there a fix on the way?!

I was able to install game but it flickers so much I can't play for more than 30 seconds before I quit. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it several times. Can anyone help?

I recently bought a Mac and went to Best Buy searching for a few games to play on it. I bought Vampire Secrets.

I am stuck at the hospital. (and I do mean stuck) I am in the hospital room and I know I have to put the envelop on the screen to get the last number for the combination. I have tried this time and time again. Every time I do it, the game stops. I check and it is non-responding and I have to do a forced quit. I have repeated this several times.

You're in the wrong spot - the lose brick is for something else in the cemetery.

Go back to the entrance of the cemetery and move your cursor over the right side of the gate - there is a stone there that will change the cursor to a magnifying glass. Use the chisel on the stone in the gate and you'll get the metal peg.

Exact same thing here. I put the envelope up to the x-ray screen, and it freezes and I have to restart or crashes the game completely. Tried it on a brand new MacBook Pro, and a 4 year old MacBook - does the same thing. I bought the game at Best Buy (but I've got quite a few games from here) and even tried returning the game to a different store and reloading it from scratch - and it does the SAME THING.

This is a very glitchy game, and they need to recall it or fix the darn thing!

I'm peeved. I was unable to enter the code for the blood lab. I had the numbers, they were put together in the correct order and attached, but no matter what I did, I just got the message that the code must be in the hospital somewhere. I could not enter the numbers at all. I had to skip the puzzle. Annoying. Very annoying.

Can somebody please help me?

I just bought my game yesterday, and I love it!! But now I am at the level in the hospital room, and every time (every. time.) I click on the x ray view box, the entire game just crashes. Closes. No error windows, just "The application Hidden Mysteries Vampire Secrets quit unexpectedly. Click Relaunch..." and I do that, and it's a continuous loop of crashing. I have a MAC OS X.

Please, can somebody help?

Hey!! This is my exact problem!!! Every time I touch the x-ray view box, it just shuts down. Completely. And immediately. Was there never a solution to this???

I have this exact problem as well. Any helpful hints as to how I can remedy this situation and get on with the game would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm stuck in a HOG in the castle coffin room. It lists "scythe" which I found but it is still listed. I found anoher one which I click on to no avail. Now I can't get the chess piece and continue the game. I've tried quitting the game and starting again, but it doesn't change anything in the game.


So, I had to restart the game. When I got to that HOG I clicked on the smaller scythe on the left of the screen AND did no leave it for the last item. The scythe stayed on the screen but was deleted from the list of items to find. Here's hoping it's the last bug I encounter.

I am also having this problem.



Exactly what happens to me. I'm running WinXP 32 bit, ATI Radeon X1650 graphics card and PLENTY of space on the harddrive. Everything is fully up to date after the latest Dr. Felix check earlier this week.

Well this is 9months later and Im still having probs with the game choosing not to play for me...like others I get the developers logo and BFGs and then its back to "play again" ...grrr ..... wonders to self "Are aliens taking control of our games?"

I am getting so tired of some games working and some NOT...error violations for some and others run just fine...I realize that $6.99 is not a huge price to pay, but we are paying for games to work properly, yes??? The same fix blog comes up every time and I have all the latest everything, so it does NOT help me...I don't ever have problems at any other game sites, so...hmmm...thinking BFG is the problem and not us...

Playing the HD version on iPad (original).

Trying to play the HO at the Lighthouse. The list contained only the nesting dolls, but it was listed three times. The hint is pointing to items in the scene but I am not allowed to pick them up.

After looking at the walkthrough, I realized I've got a real problem here.
