Finished game and am playing Bonus play. At the juncture where Emily should appear on the screen and then one final **** before the end... no Emily, no **** the hidden object abbreviation is being starred out for some reason?

That's the problem, we can't go back to full screen as only the very far right part of the main menu screen is showing! It's a real pain.


This is exactly what's happening to me. It was fine until I tried widescreen, now I can't readjust the settings because the options menu is in the blacked-out area. I even tried to uninstall both the Game Manager and the game, but something is still holding the settings. If anyone knows where the individual game settings are stored, please post, because if we erase these we can reset the game.

For all who have the issue where most of the screen is blacked out, I found an answer for my PC anyway. All I had to do was update my display driver. It was fine afterwards, and I was able to switch back to full or widescreen with no more problems. Good luck to all!

Anyone else having a problem getting the tuning peg to interact with the lock on the violin shop door? I've tried putting it just about everywhere but no go. There's no skip button here either because it's not a game. Arrgh.

The key that is under the sleeping dog disappears. I have uninstalled, reinstalled and logged on as another player, starting all over and it happened each time. I am stuck and can go no further. Disappointed.

I've completed the mini game and received the drill bit. The bolts are not visible but I've assembled the drill - I cannot collect the econ coil. Is this a bug in the game? The strategy guide indicates I should see the bolts at this point.

I'm having the same problem as janspack. I tried updating my driver for graphics and have uninstalled and re-installed 3 times now. Still just a 2" space of the game on the left hand side of screen. The rest is black except for the game cursor. I have been working on this for 3 days now. Please help! My screen resolution is 1366X768, btw.

Game was running fine - fast, no probelms -- then when I got to the boat with cannons -- it crashed my computer. TWICE. I am no longer playing until Big Fish fixes this very serious issue. My computer has all the fastest, latest updates -- THE PROBLEM IS IN THE GAME. IT CRASHES THE COMPUTER. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Big trouble with the charged drill towards the end of the Beware of the Undertow chapter. If you connect it the wrong way, the bolts will not appear.

I'd like to get a refund on the game OR a update to fix this problem. I do not care to go back thru three chapters to connect the drill in a specific order. That is silly.

Can you all get a fix out for this soon? Other than that, enjoying the game very much.

On the bonus gameplay, my game glitched as I clicked the last related pair in the vault. It started to remove the line "1 related pair left" but stopped. I cannot perform the next action and hint is not working. I was able to access the strategy guide, and I did indeed find all the pairs. I can move out of the vault and perform other actions, but I cannot do anything while inside the vault. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, but that did not fix the issue.

I have a problem that no-one else has mentioned (so maybe it's just me.....?) - demo played fine, but having bought the game, nearly every object that I pick up gives me an instant black screen & takes me back to the GM, so I have to reload. Fortunately the game picks up where it chucked me out & I don't have to start from the beginning, but I'm not a happy bunny!

Anyone got any suggestions, please, before I ask the techies?

PLEASE HELP ME ! In the second chapter, where I have to remove the screws from the grate on the bottom of the stairs with the screwdriver, it's just doesn't work. The grate is unclickable, and I've searched everywhere on the internet for the solution. And they all say the same thing, but it doesn't work. I am getting really frustrated. Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

For some reason before I installed and reinstalled the game twice, it kept saying the game trial was over. Then on the third download it took and I got to play the game. When I went to use one of the accumulated items to see if it would do anything in the scene, the cursor became that item (the flashlight) and wouldn't let me put it down. I ended up exiting off my MAC as it was the only way to end the game. What's going on here>
Thanks
