I see the magnifying glass on the dentist's chair and try clicking all over where it shows, but it's not zooming in. Have been looking all over for something else to do and where to find the 2nd emblem for the study door. So then I finally went to the walkthrough and saw I should have gotten it at the chair. Am afraid I goofed this up by putting the wire in the chair and then not pressing the red button (because I wasn't sure what to make of the arrows and if something else was needed).

Still is bizarre that the magnifying glass shows up and it doesn't zoom in at all.

started a second game and got all the way through and finished it. still going back to the first profile I can't get it to zoom into the chair or show me where the sun piece is above it. Happened so fast in the second game - have a feeling it was in one of the lights above, but those don't register anything clicking on them. the only thing to show anything has happened is that the chair is reclined. the sun piece is definitely not in the inventory anywhere and there seems no way to get it.

also started having several errors in the second game. after assembling mirrors, the sound cut out and menu disappeared. tapes still played with sound, but no music or sound effects. don't remember about voices besides tapes.

Went to tape the power cord for the tv and the tape was missing from my inventory. I noticed someone else was missing something from their inventory as well. Should we download the game again for the fix?

It's not just this game that I am having this problem with but couldn't find where in the forums to post the problem..

With quite a number of my BigFish games I have discovered lately that they are quitting as soon as I start them up. It is only the games that are already in full screen mode. They have previously been working fine. I can sometimes get as far as the main menu before it quits, but I can never get far enough to get them out of full screen mode. How do I fix this???

I am in the basement of the asylum. I need a flower from the clump of flowers in the first room. But when I try to take a flower, no hand appears. There is also a place that looks like a flower has been pulled by the roots from the dirt. But there is no flower in my inventory. I have checked the Walkthrough, and it says the flower is supposed to be there. I cannot continue further without this flower. What can I do other than starting over with a different profile - which I REALLY don't want to do?

ETA: I posted this question on a better forum and got an answer that solved my problem. Just in case someone else runs into this problem. Exit the game. Re-enter, go to the third room, put the gold tooth, the sulfur, and the red cloth in the mortar bowl, hit "hint" button, go to the second room, hit "hint" button, go to the first room to the flowers. You should now be able to "pick" one of the orange flowers to use in your potion. If you can't, hit "hint" and try again.

I have. Did you ever figure out why?

Hope I'm in the right place. The trial game worked fine for me and then I purchased the game..played for 15-20 more. When I came back to the game it had me sign in and I lost all the progress of my previous game. I started from square one and the got the black screen with just the inventory bar at the bottom. I'm going to attempt uninstalling and reinstalling the game...but I am frustrated at losing my progress TWICE!

I have the SAME problem!! I am so upset.. I didn't buy the game, but I am using coins on another gaming site for this one and I wasted, hoping a computer restart would fix it. It didn't.

Edit: I made a new profile and went through the whole game again and it worked that way, for anyone else who has the problem.

I found that, if I have a Firefox session open, lots of my BF games will start, but will minimize right away. If you have Firefox running, try closing that, wait a few seconds for Firefox to get completely gone (even after the window closes), and then select the game. It should stay up then.

I got the black screen when I started the game too. I'm trying to reinstall it and see if that fixes it. Thank goodness I only paid $2.99 if it doesn't work.

Hi! I just got Asylum Conspiracy as a gift from my bf. Been playing the past hour or so and got to the living quarters - now I can't get any further. I click on the door to the recreation room and my screen just turn darker. I click to go back to the corridor and it goes all black. I've tried to let it stand like that for a while to see if it would just take alot longer time than normally. Nothing happens and I just end up having to quit game. I've done this about 5 times so far. I really want to continue playing, I hope someone can help me! I'm playing on a Mac OS X 10.6.7

Thanks in advance!

I have all the mirrors and put them in place. I dug the grave now it tells me to find five mirrors.

I cant see anyone else having this problem but Im trying to use the cleaning solution in the beaker in the pharmacy but it wont let me put either that or the stone in there. it makes the screen dark (as if the lights have gone out) and I am stuck there because I cannot go any further in the game

I purchased the game and tried to play it, but all I got was a white screen and sound. I switched my computer resolution to 1024x768 and finally got the start screen w/ sound, but when I clicked on Play all that came up was an empty notebook with nowhere to go from there. My son is playing this game on his computer just fine, but for some reason it won't load completely on mine........highly disappointed at this moment
