There was one point in the game where it froze, and I had to Ctrl Alt Del to get out. I restarted the game and it continued fine. But there were several instances of my mouse control just freezing for several seconds and I wouldn't be able to move the cursor. Then it would start working again. I'm intrigued by the game, and might buy it. The tech issues I ran into were small, but hopefully they won't continue in the full version. And even if they did, hopefully the devs would fix it.

I used the memory device to search for the memory bubbles, the second one I clicked on I got an access violation error and program terminated. Am on Windows Vista with no problems running any other game.

The game freezes when I click on the cat at Leo's house. I too had to Alt Ctl Del to get out of it. I really like this game but am hesitant to buy it if it is going to be this buggy.

Hi Everyone,

If there's trouble with getting Grim Facade: Monster in Disguise Collector's Edition to work correctly, we highly recommend going to our Help pages. Using our Help pages is always the quickest way to get technical problems resolved. Here are a few suggested articles that have helped many people correct these types of problems in the past:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen
Game Compatibility
Access Violation

In some cases, we can provide a known solution for technical issues in the Forums. In addition, some of our tech savvy pond residents may also swim by with good tips and suggestions. However, we're unable to provide the same excellent level of support provided by our Customer Support team. This is because the Forums are not well suited for the type of information-gathering and troubleshooting that's needed in order to correct issues of this nature.

If you're unable to get a game working properly using our Help pages or the tips posted here, please get in touch with our Customer Support team. You can find a link to contact Customer Support on the front page of our Help pages section.

Contacting Customer Support will help us to gather necessary information on what types of systems are being affected by the problem and to share this information with the developer in order to work towards a fix.

When posting in this thread and also when contacting Customer Support, it would be helpful if you could state what system you are playing the game on (i.e. PC, MAC or Mobile), so we can provide you with the appropriate support as quickly as possible.

*Finally, please reserve this thread for tech issues only. If you are seeking game play assistance (i.e. hints and tips), the best thing to do is to start a new thread in the game's Forum by clicking on 'Create New Discussion.'

Debbie 387, the same thing happened to me twice, in the demo and when I had bought the game, on Windows 10. The only way to continue the game, it seems, is to skip it!

This is the second game that won't close. I back out of the game like always, game manager pops up, but the game won't uninstall "error code 346" game still running. Last time I had to completely shut down my computer to shut off the game. running windows 10 and don't have a problem with other games, just the new ones.

Game freezes up when searching for memory balls. Happened 4 times and I give up, not worth the effort to continue.

I am having the exact same problem which is very disappointing because up until now, I was really enjoying the game.
I emailed tech support with a Dr. Felix attached. Hopefully the glitch is on their end and can be fixed.

Hi Scottie
I was still in the demo as well, I really wanted to buy it, as I love this series but I'm not while there's problems so early in the game. I've put it on my list of unplayables let's hope there's an update.

I am sooo disappointed I can't play this game. I have played all the others in the series . Why do game developers do that makes this happen? My computer is new I have all the bells and things needed ?? I get Access violation what ever that is???? I tried all the the suggestions at Big Fish nothing works and it never does . This is only the 3rd time I have had this problem since I started with Big Fish but still not fun .

In the game where there is a circle (and an action is required within the circle) ie. entering the code in the beginning of the game in the police station , my circle is black. Only seems to occur in the Grim Facade Series of games. Usually I can play "blind" and do the action ie. open a door handle. But in this game I am unable to "blindly" enter the code as I don't know where the numbers have started from and can't guess. I am on a PC Windows 7. Not sure what I am missing computer-wise. Has anyone else had this problem and know what I need to do? Thanks!

I can't play this game either - I am running Windows 10.

I only managed to get to the 2nd scene with the horse and carriage, I was clicking around and the screen went black but I could hear the background noises, i.e. the horse neighing.

I had to exit using Ctrl-Alt-Delete and installed the game 5 times over but the same thing happened again and again. I also tried some of the suggestions the Mods posted but it remained the same when I reached the 2nd scene.

I have tried all of the tech suggestions nothing changed. My question is if I buy the full version are these issues still going to happen and if so, can I get a refund?

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to stop in to provide some help for the technical issues being reported here. Our teams definitely want people to be able to play their games without encountering tech problems, and I'm going to pass along the posts here so that the appropriate team is aware of this.

In the meantime, our help articles can often be useful when glitches are occurring in a game. For the issues being described here, I recommend trying the steps in the following:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen

Additionally, I've included a couple help articles below with some information specific to access violations and Windows 10 issues, respectively:

Access Violation
Windows 10

If anyone continues to experience a problem, we recommend contacting our Technical Support Team HERE with a Dr. Felix Report. Our Reps are able to gather data on issues that they can report to the right team, and they're always happy to help. Additionally, they can provide replacements, and even refunds if needed.

Thank you for your patience.
