Really glad I read these posts . I was just about to buy it. Think I might wait now and see if the glitches are fixed before I waste my money .

Hello everyone! We have just released the second new build of Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena here at Big Fish Games. This new build of the game addresses issues people were having with the following:

-The inability to leave the room in the Paris, France level where you receive the Date Scroll
-Glitches with the fire urn in the Lhasa, Tibet level

In order to access the new build of the game, take a look at our help topic - Uninstall / Reinstall a Game. Also, the new build will require you to create a new game profile after you've installed the new build in order for the fixes to take effect. So, unfortunately, you'll have to start the game over again.

Thank you to everyone for your patience and enthusiasm for Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena. If you continue to experience any other technical issues with the game, please contact our Customer Support staff. They are well trained in assisting with technical questions and concerns. You can contact them by clicking here.

Thank you for visiting the forums, and happy gaming!

Thanks bfgAgean- that will make a lot of players happy. While I did not initially have problems- I did on my second go.

This needs to bumped to the top

If you bought the game from BF after you uninstall you just go to your purchase history and reinstall.

It's great that there's another new build for this game - I duly downloaded it only to get the same message coming up, namely about the corrupted sfs header.

It's such a shame, because it's a great game.

I've downloaded the trial version from other sources and it plays well, but as soon as you shut it down and then try to start it up again, the same error message appears and from what I read on these posts, I'm not the only one this is happening to.

I've done all I can with the Support Team ad BFG, who are great and have really tried to get me up and running with this game, so no complaints there.

I just wish the game producers could get this issue sorted out once and for all for all us frustrated Samantha Swifters out there.

Hi
I am in the Uk and wondering when I will be able to play this game all the way through without getting frozen in rooms ? Still stuck in the Japan room.
Have bought this game last week.
Thanks
Teresa

In the meantime, here is our help topic that explains how to download a new build of a game you already own.

THey did post an update build on the 24th, but it seems that players are still having issues. Knowing Big Fish, they are working very hard on this problem.

Well that didn't work! I followed the instructions to uninstall and reinstall the game. Guess what ? I started right back where I left off and am still stuck in the Egyptian room! What happened? I was all prepared to start the whole game over. I like this game but would really like to get out of that room!

Okay! I'm a dummy! Forgot to delete my old profile and start a new one. Started all over and everything is working fine so far! I am finally out of the Egyptian room!!! Hope the rest of the game goes as well. It is a very fun and easy game. Much more enjoyable than the headaches I got from Amazon!

I am still in Japan and it tells me to find Dr. B. , the professor. All I have is a black screen. I cannot see anything except Samatha telling me we can't leave the room until we find him. How do you find anything in a totally black room with no light?? A light is not one of my tools.
I have the roses, the shield and a scarf for tools. When I click "hint" a light streak shoots to the top of the left side of the screen, but absolutely nothing happens when you click there.
Help! Is Big Fish still getting another rebuild for this game? Does anybody know???

Thanks, LizzieK, so much for explaining the edit sign. After I uninstalled and reinstalled my game worked perfectly. I enjoyed playing it. Easier than some, but it was fun just to be able to play without a hassle of looking in a strategy guide.

You're welcome Dr. Bill. It is a pleasure to play a game without glitches. There seem to be a lot of games lately that are released with lots of glitches. I wish they would beta test game more before they release them.

I have redownloaded and reinstalled the game several times and like many of you had and still have the error message come up of the corrupted header. I find it stange though that if you download the game from other sources or sites it works fine...because of the error i can't finish the game and that kinda sucks. It is one of the few hidden object games I like. Would love to know if the error problem ever gets resolved.

GOOD NEWS!!!! I downloaded a new version of the big fish sub...The thing that the games download to and such. After I downloaded it I got the best surprise. The game was playable again. No corruption error and I was able to play from where I left off. For those of you that have had the same problem I highly recomend the new download of the game doc. I don't know what to call it. For now I will keep my fingers crossed that the error doesn't come back.
