Why have we been having problems like this? I think I could name 5 or 6 in the 2 months that didn't work!



I am confused.

How do I check direct X I also DO NOT want the bing toolbar. Prefer to stay wioth google.

As Rizzo says:

"This is the error message I get when I try to run the game:


Error in function cHogSound::Initialize
Master Voice interface creation failed.
DirectX Error code: 0x80070057, E_INVALIDARG
An invalid parameter was passed to the returning function
File: ..\src\engine\class_sound.cpp, Line: 77 "


I got this error too.

Bought it before trying it. Not a good thing, but I am a long time BFGamer, and liked the looks of it.
My issue is a graphics problem where I have to use monitor settings to center the game on the display.
This is the only game I have had to fiddle with settings to get a usable display.
And still the words on the graphics are hard to read.
i don't know what the issue is, because I have all the latest drivers, but still had to download some DirectX update to get the game to install.

I have XP and refused BING tool bar and got black screen with music, the same as a lot of other fishies. Have re-installed it till a fix is offered. Still waiting for fix for lots of games offered this year. Hope 2011 is a better year. No problems with games in 2008 or 2009.

Second game in the last two days I can't get to work right. Chronicles of Albian dl's just fine but when you try to run the game to play it all you get is an error message that nothing seems to fix. Today I thought I would try a new game and all I get is the mysterios black screen and the golden pointer of death appartently, I hope that ghostly voice is having fun singing that song because so far that is the only thing having a good time with this game.

I've got the same as everyone else, which is very disappointing as I was really looking forward to playing this game. I hope it gets sorted soon so I don't feel I've wasted my money.

Same here. Got the opening credits, then a cursor and music. And that's it. Nothing.

I seem to be in the same catagory as the rest of the issues listed here. Get a black screen and soundtack when the "House of Tales" shows up. I would really like to play this game and form my own opinion........what gives?

All i'm getting is a blank screen and sound track! I have uninstalled and installed again twice! I also don't like the fact that you have to sign up to a bing toolbar to get this game!! This is the first time this has happened with Big Fish! What's going on?
