I tried playing this a couple months ago, but had major cursor problems.
Just did what was recommended. Uninstall and reinstall. This is Nov 10 and the cursor is just as bad as ever. I thought there was a fix.

I am having trouble in collecting the fly, moss and mushroom for the blue pouch in the Asylum portion. When I go for these items all that shows is the Eye. When I pick up the knife for the Moss the banner says "I don't moss now maybe later" I've already completed the red pouch and cannot continue the game without the blue pouch to get the 4th arrow. I have deleated and reinstalled the game 3 times and it does the same thing each time. Any ideas what to do next?

I downloaded the trial version to play on a 64-bit Vista system and I could only get through 4 or 5 minutes of game time in about 20 minutes real time. It looked like a decent game, but I am going to give this one a pass.

Having the same problem as a lot of other people with very sluggish game play and cursor impossible to control. Too bad because I really liked the game other than that. Definitely a NO BUY for me...

Edit: And I'm REALLY getting tired of expecting us to beta test games after they are released.

The graphics are so clear, love this game. No porblems until slider game. I cannot get squares to slide. They will not move at all and I have removed the roman numeral square.

In the game in the labratory with the arrow buttons, I can no longer push any of the buttons. Previously, I was able to (although I hadnt figured out the right order yet), however, I now, no matter how many times I restart the game, and game manager, I cannot press any of the buttons at all, and thus there is no way to solve this puzzle, and get any further in the game. Very dissapointing

If I downloaded the game today...do I have the latest version that was supposed to correct all of the sluggish cursor problems? I have played for about 12 minutes and I can't do much of anything since there is such a lag in time. I have manually checked for updates, but says all of my games are up to date. I have read the forum and this was an issue when this game was first released...shows an update was completed...but I am still having this problem.

It seems like a nice game and I want to purchase it before the end of the day...to get credit on this month's punch card...and to get it for the lower price.

Thanks...

Same problem, flashing screen and the game won't start. But it did work yesterday during the trial period. I had no problems what's so ever. Then I bought it for the "Game of the Year" special and tried it today, only to have joined the other fishies caught in this "Net" of technical difficulties. BF please release us and fix this and let us go free to play. LOL I thought BF was a catch and release pond. LOL

Another one here who played the one hour trial without any problems at all and now I have purchased the whole game on the Game of the Year promotion, it truly is a 'Nightmare Adventure'!!

The cursor is all over the place regardless of what option I select, the puzzles move so painfully slowly that I forget any strategy I was trying to use. I have looked all the way through this forum for some sort of practical help but all I can see is the Customer Services keep cutting and pasting the same part from the FAQ in the help section. Newsflash!! That doesn't actually help!

Most of us experienced gamers are well aware that the problems could be caused if updates are needed but what do we do if we've updated anything and everything we can get our hands on and still the game plays like the worst kind of 80's robotic dancing?

I know we can get a refund (eventually) but sometimes I'd actually like to be able to play a game offered.

I reached the entry to the lab where you have to use the sun tile to enter the boarded up door. When I go to use the tile, it does not work; as a matter of fact, nothing works. The hint says to use the sun tile, but it does not work. The cursor jumps. The cursor isn't the bigger problem, its that the game won't let anyone proceed further. What do I do? I am using a Mac Book Pro with OS X 10.5.8

Slow cursor ( I took it off custom because it was impossibly slow), slow load up of pages, problems accessing the tool bar, slow movement of pieces playing games, all contributed to what otherwise was a really good game but these problems were so annoying it was hard to enjoy.

Just another "me-too" on the cursor movement problems. My drivers are all the latest available, and other games play fine. The worst problems occur when there's a small window in the middle of the screen (like you're doing something with an inventory item). I can't play it in this condition.

The slow program operation, combined with (or perhaps causing) jerky, sluggish pointer movements removes all fun from playing the game. I find that I'm just SKIPPING puzzles because they're too painful to do with the delays in response to mouse movements.

Late Edit: I don't want to seem displeased with the game. It has gobs and gobs of great puzzles - far more than I find in most games. However, I'm unhappy that I have to "skip" so many of them because the slow program response to mouse movements make them virtually impossible to do.

Sometimes the BigFish activation process can interfere with game progress or inventory items. If this has happened with your game, the best solution is to start over with a new profile so you can complete the game successfully. The upside is that you get to play the beginning a 2nd time, so it is easier.
