Game keeps crashing

[Post New]by PeterJKH on Jun 30, 14 10:03 AM
Several times, when exiting a location, the game just crashed - the screen went black, nothing happened anymore. I had to restart the computer to get it going again.

Now I am in the office of the motel, have given the inhaler to the mother, she says a few words. In that particular scene, there are two close-ups rapidly after each other. The first close-up won't (mother sitting on the floor with baby in her arms) does not disappear completely, stays faintly visible, and the game stalls. I have tried reinstalling the game, but same problem. So I can not go any further.

And I have all the same problems other people mention (voice-overs that disappear, etc.).

Really a bad game. Could have been nice, looks nice, but this is no fun. Did I pay for that? Who is going to give me my money back?!

I didn't have any crashes or slowing down issues, the only issue I encountered was the voice problem everyone had.

But can anybody please explain another mystery?
I just finished the bonus chapter and went back to the extra section where you can replay some of the mini games. The last two were blocked and when I clicked on them I was told that I had to play those mini games within the game itself to be able to replay them.
I haven't missed nor skipped any puzzle or mini game...
What's wrong?

Uninstalling - this looked like a really cool game. I don't usually like live action sequences but what I saw from the demo were well-done.

Problem is it's so laggy and painfully slow. Every click takes 2~3 seconds to register, then a couple more seconds for an action/response. Audio was out of sync with text dialogue.

I got as far as saving the bus driver from pole wires and was fed up. I'm impressed that other people with the same lagginess/slowness were able to get beyond that. I don't have the patience to play a game that's 70% waiting in the vein of old, OLD PC games.

Running Mac OS10.7.

In the bonus game they are really messed up with the text box not even appearing and other sounds continuing to play after they should stop (fire hydrant sound after hose turned off).


I'm having the exact same problem. NO voices at all after a few conversations. VERY annoying and feel cheated. Would like my money back for sure.

Just adding my voice to others. The voiceovers didn't work most of the time - just typed words and moving lips. Too bad. The voice actors were pretty good.

I also have the problem with the black screen during the bonus game. It happened when I had stopped the car fire and was getting ready to go to the motel room.

I finally splurged and bought a CE. That may have been a big mistake. I'm in the scene where I have to use the flashlight under the bus driver's bed to connect the electrical cord and the game seems to have frozen. I can't leave the scene or do anything in it. The hint, guide and inventory keys work but nothing else. ..

I loaded the 'new build' and now I am frozen; so I am doing a reload. It is soooo slow! I remember doing this game in beta and thought it might be interesting but it plays slowly as well. I was hoping the new build would make it easier - help!

I had asked and receive a credit for this game, but I'll wait to use it until I see if this new build works. I'd rather be able to play and finish this game without glitches, so I'll keep my fingers crossed until it downloads.

Edit to add: Even with the new build, I'm getting a black screen in the bonus. Perhaps over the weekend, I will start a new profile and play the game again from the beginning to see what happens. At least with the new build, I have sound - as far as the one scene I played before black happened.

Unfortunately the patch didn't solve the problem I had in the Bonus game with the hose.

I tried downloading the demo to play and it stops loading at 10%. I really would like to play to see if I want to buy the game but no luck. After reading some posts about the problems I am not sure if I do want to buy it anyway. Hopefully a fix is on the way.

I too am unable to get the token off the bus. I put the batteries in the control, press the switch, the bus comes out, I click it and it doesn't do anything and wont let me do anything else either like leave the scene! Very unhappy as with the game being a collectors edition, I feel like Im out of pocket now =(
