I also had difficulties with the cursor It was like it was locked in the box of the room and could not get out of that area I was able to click on the eagle enough for the hints, but that was all. I just had to let it sit until the trial hr was up. Hope this gets fixed and we can get another trial period, it looks interesting.

Game locked up after a few minutes. Think this game needs working on before I try it again.

I could not even get the game to show up on my monitor. Exited by control/alt/delete, then uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. After installation was complete, the message was that my 60 minute trial had expired. Hmmmmm.

The game froze on me too and I had trouble with the game size on my screen I had to adjust it it froze on the green lawn, but it was my fault for not following the games instructions I had to go to the Diary click on the map and use the decoded clues i had to select the rooms by the clues. Remember if the game does not fit the screen too large go to the options and change the resolution

I know it's not helpful (to all you very frustrated fishies) but I managed to play all the way through with no problems! Nothing special here on my laptop to suggest the problem is to do with memory or video cards! I hope you all get a fix soon!

Game is quite good but not as long as I was led to believe. And it's sadly lacking in puzzles.

I had no problems at all with the game - until I got nearly to the end! When I am looking for the mirrors, I find the first one and the game locks up, and it won't give me another list of things to find or a new location. I closed the game and restarted, and all the items I had just found are back again but there is no list of things to find.

I guess I'll just have to wait for the update - I hope it comes soon. It is a very good game, with lots of interesting facts and great artwork. Some of the scenes are a bit too dark, making it hard to spot the objects, but there are plenty of hints if you need them. I especially like the outline option, being able to see the outline of the object without having the actual location revealed.

ps. To the developers, I loved the professor's comment when he asked Miranda to hurry - those little gems of humor are what makes a game special.

The game froze on me too. It brought up a black screen with the message "out of range". I left the computer alone for an hour and when I went back, the big fish tab had appeared and said my sixty minutes was up. I'm over it now though.

Downloaded this game then I thought why not see what other people think about it.
Oh! God I thought if there is anything wrong with a game my Vista always finds it. But to my surprise everything worked fine and bought it after my 60mins of free play.Lovely so far, liked the alternate views, it's different

For those who get stuck on the lawn - go to the Journal and chose a new location from the map!

This was a real "Duh" for me - I uninstalled the game and replayed it from the start, and noted the pop-up about using the journal to go to new locations on the map. Since we didn't have to do that in any other part of the game, I completely forgot about it!

I'm posting this in the other forum on this subject, so more people who are having the problem can see it.
