I can't get the game to download after multiple tries. I also tried to download the Matchmaker game advertised today as a Felix Favorite. Couldn't get that to work. Mule hay delivery just arrived so I've got to start moving 125 pound bales of hay up to my mules. Nothing more annoying sounding than a mule complaining that she's hungry.

Hooray! I got it to download and the demo played perfectly. Just as a matter of general info; I have Windows XP Home Edition service pack 3, IE 7 and use Trend Micro Internet Security Pro for my security software. I guess we just overwhelmed the server for a while, but there is hope. By the way, the game is fabulous!

Re ost any Dark Parables: Curse of Briar Rose Collector's Edition technical issues here only

I downloaded the trial version and when I started the game it said something about color being changed to basic and when it did that it moved the game screen to the right side of my computer screen and I was not able to see or access the whole game screen! It was impossible to play as the bottom of the screen wasn't visible so I had no way of seeing what to look for. The only way I could see the whole screen was to change to windowed mode so that I could get out. I am running Vista.

Definately try again if you can't get the download to start. I run Windows 7 and have also downloaded games when I ran Vista. This was the only game I have ever tried to download and couldn't get it to start to download. Figured that the BFG must have had a LOT of gamers downloading the game, so I just waited.

I took the chance and skipped the trial. I bought it and it downloaded fine for me (Vista). It is a good game. Hope the issues get fixed for the rest of you.

FIXED - download error for a few folks

[Post New]by picman050967 on Mar 11, 10 11:45 AM
Sorry -
One of our 20 download servers with a incomplete build on it, so you had a 5% (1 in 20) chance of it not working (once you are assigned a server it does not change so unless you move do a different IP address, it never works).

This was identified at 5am today and fixed by ~7:30am PST.

There should not be any download issue any longer.

Game downloaded ok but do not have a full screen - border on right hand side. I have altered the screen resolution but the game will still not fill the screen. A great pity as this is a good game and I would have certainly bought the collectors edition.

Another fine mess from BFG!! This one comes up windowed and shows that is is full screen. No matter what res setting I use, it will not come up full screen!!! I am getting tire of this and the fact that the game manager has seen fit to treat similar games in the same manner. Games that I had previously had absolutely so problems with at all will no longer play. At this rate, BFG should change the name to LEMON-AID!!!! NOT IMPRESSED.

I did not have any problem downloading or playing the game until I got to where you cut the vine down with the machette and go into that room and I cannot click on lantern nor do I get a Hidden Object scene and cannot continue as I need that King's key, anyone else have a problem here, any help would be appreciated.....

Download went fine. Can open game but cannot get it full screen. I suspect I need to adjust resolution or something like that. I am game savvy but computer challenged. Would you help me, please?

Mine downloaded fine, but now I can't purchase it. I am a member, not trying to use a coupon or anything, just won't process my transaction.

I am playing the game,but, it shows up in a box even though I press for full screen?
Then I can't see the objects because of the line across the bottom??
Please fix this problem!!

Thought I would try this game because it looked like a really good game, unfortunately when I started to play it I could only play for about 2 minutes before it took me right out of the game and then it said my time was up. Too bad, I probably would have bought it, but if I have problems with a game from the start, I won't bother with it!

It seems that I humbly own BFG an apology for recent posts. After much tweaking and re-installing my video drivers on my HP laptop, I seem to have resolved my issues with screen fit. My problem now is that all of the past games that did not work will not let me install to try them again. Now I can at least go back and enjoy some games that never worked. Please accept my frustrated apology. ;-Deano This one looks good!!
