Glad to hear that it was not just my computer having problems with the cursor. Fortunately it did not happen throughout the entire game or I would have broken my screen. I did have problems with one puzzle which I was able to skip, but then when I got to the part of getting into the asylum it does it all the time. Ready to trash it.

well, it looked like a good game... pressed "play now" on game manager & got an omen that all would not be well. My screen went black & white lines for a long time, then when the game came up, it wasn't worth the time & frustration to try any more than about 10 minutes. Cursor just floats & drags slowly, moving around is jerky, & picking up inventory or found objects was in slo mo, or No mo. I've never had a game do this before, so came to the forum to see if anyone else reported similar glitches. Seems like this one has had problems since the beginning. Bummer.

I'm admitting to being a little jealous of people who say they get flashing screens... as as I brought this game via CD-Rom today as I want games for my PC and don't always like downloading them.

Unfortunately, out of all the games I brought today for my new laptop, this one (and so far this one alone), refuses to load. It installs. When I go to press play the screen turns black as though it's about to play and then it exits and I get a new screen pop up from Big Fish saying "Thank you for playing" and an option to "play again". That's it.

I've sent a request to the Customer Support, but am hoping someone might have some advice before the 24-72 hours they allow for themselves is up as I really do want to give this game a try.

I'm using Windows 7 but the rest of my laptops specs meet the specs required of the game and the box claims it is Windows 7 compatible.

Anyone have any ideas how I might be able to at least see if I have any other technical issues with it?

Thanks in advance,

Reb.

I have bought this game just last week and I have got to the bit where you enter the blood DNA sample and enter "thorn" and it then takes you to some dialogue. My game has got stuck her and when I closed the game down & started it again I have lost all the game that i have played so far!
Anyone got any ideas or will I just need to start again??

I bought the PC version of this game today and assume it is the updated version. It installed and started fine.

A few minutes into the game, the game started to lag and get slower and slower, causing the cursor to appear to jump and make it very difficult to aim it at anything. I went to the options window and changed from full screen to windowed.

That improved it again until about 5 minutes of playing, when it got slower and slower, until is was unplayable. I closed the game, opened it again. Again it played well for about 5 minutes, then lagged.

This problem acts like a memory leak.

Are there any fixes?

I fixed my problem by installing an updated video card driver, which fixed it until I got to the graveyard where it started slowing down again, but not as badly as before. I could wait a minute or two for the game to catch up. It sounded like the game was loading all those graphics.

Really strange: I played this game problem free when it came out. Now, I was going through my game manager cleaning out games and tried to play this one again only to get FLASHING SCREEN. I am on the same computer. The only thing different is I am using AVG now instead of Norton or McAfee. Could AVG be the problem?

I have a Mac OS X 10.6.4, and I don't even remember what part I'm at anymore because now when I load it, it just gives me a black screen and a weird little object. I've re-installed it multiple times, and when I get to whatever point I'm at now, the same thing happens. It freezes, and when I try to play, I get the weird little symbol and a black screen. I haven't gotten past the chain link fence (I think it's a chain link fence. All I know is that I'm not far at all.) Anyone else have this problem?

Right from the start my cursor was herky jerky. I opted for standard cursors, it was no help.

It looks like it would be a great little game but after seeing the reviews over the past couple of years, and the SAME problems arising without resolution, I'm not sure I want to spent the whole $2.99 just to make myself crazy.

Even at a mere three bucks, glitches are glitches and should have been fixed long ago.

I thought the update would fix the lagging cursor...NOT. That was the first problem with the game. Next problem...I tried again yesterday to play the game. All I got was a jumbled up colored screen. Don't say it was my computer graphics...all the other games I tried after this worked fine. This game is full of bugs...problems...whatever you want to call it. I'm glad I only paid $2.99 for it as I am sure there won't be any refund for it.

I love Big Fish Games as a whole. This game has been my only truly, truly, truly bad experience.

Did I mention it was TRULY bad?

This game is not working very well. The cursor floats so does the regular one: It picks up the wrong thing out of the inventory and hard to hold on to the one you need.
The tile "H' is not there so i am really stuck now.Most mini games don
t work the curser does not let you move the pieces.
Overall this game is very frustrating. And where is the lettter "H". it is not it is supose to be i have the waltkthrough.
It also does not go back when needed, Sorry I bought this game but i would like to finish it but how? Start all over???

I had the same cursor problems that the other people in this forum were having so I tried an experiment. Before deleting the free trial I downloaded from BFG which had the slow blinking cursor problem I downloaded the free trial from Iwin games and had no further trouble with the cursor or any other game issue. That tells me that it isn't my computer and there are no bugs inherent in the game itself. That leaves BFG and whatever they're doing or adding to the game. I've noticed other games on this site where people are having the same issues too.

I just finished this game and was happy that I didn't have some of the issues that other players have noted.....at least until the ending video. I really enjoyed the game, but after playing it all the way through, it crashed during the final video. Will someone be kind enough to PM me and tell me what happens? Thanks so much!

I was enjoying the game, everything working fine until the game froze during one of the videos. I had to cntr/alt/del to get out.
I will try to play one more time to see if I get the same problem.



I started back at the same place this time I didn't have the freezing problem. So happy because this is a good one.

I can't get the curser to do anything. I give up.

I have the exact same problem you have. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game, but it still will not stop blinking.

I have the iPad version. I now cannot reenter the lab having left it. The door is open but I am requested to reswipe my ID, which is no longer in my inventory.
