Gave up on this one within about 10 minutes ... not even sure why I played as long as I did. Several times the word they used could have refered to many items on screen and the one they wanted wasn't always the best match. Other times clicking on correct objects just did nothing ... seemed to work after a few more items were found ... very strange. It's a shame ... looks nice and that first puzzle was fun ... just too annoying to play. Also really didn't like the item of items identified by sound ... I always play with the sound low or off and that just doesn't work ... mind you ... I deleted the game before I got to the point where it wanted me to do that.

In a couple games, I've had to change from full screen to window, click the item, then change back to full screen. Good Luck.

Can you guys give me a description of the item you're referring to? Hopefully, then I can have a solution for you.

Well, the game Civil War had a constant problem with this. BF or the game developers did not fix it to my knowledge. Everytime you played the game, you had to make the screen small, then take your cursor & move the whole screen up a tad & then go back to full screen. A lot of the games have tech issues, but no one seems to fix them. Haunted Hotel comes to mind and I heard a lot of people were having problems with Margrave Manor. The developers of SH's - Persian Carpet made a "patch" so that people could play the game in relaxed mode. Has BF inquired about that? I asked, but got no responce. I have not finished the SH's game due to the time limit and always having to start a whole chapter over again.... and again. That's why it wasn't such a big hit. If BF would put in a relaxed playing mode, people would like it more.

Hi BFGFlounder. The game I had the most problem with was Civil War. It happened at least 4-5 times. I play in full-screen mode. In some instances when an item was at the very bottom of the screen, my cursor would not go down far enough to be able to click on it. The only solution was to change to window mode, click the item, then change back to full screen. Sorry I can't give you explicit screens but if you look at the thread for Civil War, you'll probably find better screen info. Thanks for asking.

I have found BF to be very fair with games if you are having a problem with them, if you contact the "live chat line" they will be more than happy to give you a game credit for any game you are having a problem with, they have never let me down in this area.

I just finished this one and really enjoyed it. According to them it took me 7 hours to complete. I never got bored with it and wished it was over. This is definatley one of the best ones I've played recently. While it doesn't have the complexity of MF, it was just hard enough to keep my interest.

OK, so now what to play??????

Need help finding the last gold coin in the museum, I think it is the third room. A mouse keeps running around but the area where the hint button refers me to nothing happens.

Hiya Froglady. I think I know where you are and I have some info that should help. I'm not sure which coin you are having trouble locating, so I'll tell you where all three of them are. One gold coin is located on the left side of the screen about two thirds of the way down. Another coin is to sitting on the lower right corner of the display case and then there is a third coin in the lower right corner of the scene, just to the left of the glasses case. I hope this helps!

I think I only played 1/2 of this game. I forgot about it. Nice game, but didn't knock my socks off. Guess I should go back in and finish it.

I don't know what level it is but I am in the Hotel Lobby and I need to find one key. My hints say it is in the bottom left hand corner but all I see is a camara rope a whisk and an envelope. I have changed the screen back and forth but when I click all over this area no Key. Any help you can give will be great. Please hurry this game is very adictive.
