I have a problem accessing this game. I know it works because I already tried it once. But when I exited out of it before and then tried to start it again, the screen were blank as if it would start, the desktop came back on and nothing! I am not computer guru as my husband installed this for me. Anyone have any help available?

I have the exact same problem, and because of this I'm not able to play it. :-(
Any hint on what to do??
Too bad after buying and downloading such a large file...

Oh, that's sucky!
I'm not making fun-I totally sympathise, especially as you say, when you've downloaded a big file game.
I've had some trouble with Nancy Drew games in the past & found if I checked my graphics card software to make sure it's completely up to date, that solved any display issues. Try that & see how it goes - and thanks to the Big Fish tech support for pointing that out to me the 1st time it happened!
Anyhow-give that a shot (check your drivers & then go online to their respective support sites to see if there's a software upgrade you need).
I really hope this helps!

I think I must be a glutton for punishment. Broke down and ordered Mina's Fate instead of waiting for it to get to the store shelves ( plus it's cheaper on Big Fish )

The original game took me nearly 2 months to finish and I had to go buy a copy of the book just to understand the game ( plus watching every movie made about it).

I can't wait to tackle this mystery......now I'm in a wait pattern as it is only 40% done for download. I am SOOOOO glad I have highspeed and not dial-up.

In regards to not being able to get the game to run and whatnot..... check your computer stats and make sure that all your graph files and things like that are up to date. Also check your firewall status as that can sometimes be an issue ( I have found that some games and or programs throw it for a loop).

You might want to try to 'de-cookie' ( click on search,then all files, type in cookies and hit the search all files button) your computer and maybe even go as far as doing disc clean-up and defragment ( access through your start panel and accessories).

If you have the back-up disc for the game, then uninstall the game and reinstall it or maybe even try a different computer/laptop if that is possible ( my daughter has some games that won't run on her computer, but will run on mine and vice versa.

I hate to say it, but you might have to actually UP your memory chip and/or processing speed as well as graphics card ( but that is a LAST resort).

My hubby has learned to fix computers ( when you have kids it's either that or buy stock in the stupid things) and I get the programs running and up to par ( I'm a mom so I have the patience or so I've been told).

BTW: I don't claim to be all knowledgeable or a computer whiz, just passing on what has worked for me in the past ( If it ain't broke, hand it to a kid and then get back to me :p)

Thanks for any help!


Hi gapalms

There is a dead porcupine just below the windmill. Combine Grass and click on the carcass. This mini game allows you to 'catch' ants. Jep eats these ants... yummy. lol

I have the same problem as playful6. I have already given Jep the ants as well as the orange, egg and seeds and I have given him a bath, which also seems to increase his health. How else do you get his health to green. Also are you stuck until you do get his health to green?

I am a little stuck even with the walkthru I saved from Gameboomers.com. It tells you to walk to the bushes near where you marked the cliff to climb up it. But even tho I marked the cliff, Only Jepp can go up. ( which I knew originally only jep could) So is there a location for Mina & Jepp to climb the hill together also? Thanks for any help.

Hi
Does anyone know how to get more clay to make the
second lot of tokens (on the cliff in the inlet)
I had Jep go there but there's no clay. He jumped into the water, out and down the bank, no dice. I can't do the mold without more clay.

all right. i have the bleeding ocarina. evidently the snake is a music critic, because he doesn't like what i'm playing. i've sat here mucking about, playing "tunes" (although how much of a tune anyone can do with only five out-of-key notes, i don't know) for seven or eight minutes, and still as soon as i put the thing down - because i can't click on anything while i'm playing - the snake will hiss at me as soon as i reach for the purple flower. is there some sort of particular tune i'm supposed to do? or maybe i should bash the snake over the head with the ocarina? that sounds like a plan - eh, wait, not an option. hit it with a stick? hmmm...

i never claimed to be a flautist. someone tell me what i'm missing...

This is a humongous file, took my computer hours to download. Then I find out there is no way to get the characters to shut up. You have to do the story.

The scenes where you are supposed to locate stuff are like those 360 degree real estate tours. Dizzying, especially since I guess you are supposed to be moving your pointer trying to find things while revolving around and around and also up and down.

There is no 'hint' box, no way to find out what you are supposed to be doing (and I picked the tutorial!)

I am so sorry I download this game since I am now going to remove it - no telling how long that will take. I am very disappointed.

I don't know about anyone else but I really HATE this game.
It is nerve-racking beyond belief! Even with the walk-through, (http://www.gameboomers.com/wtcheats/pcRr/RTMI2/returntomysteriousisland2.htm) which doesn't tell you alot of things like the first one did. I liked the last one soooo much better!!!
I still can't find how to set the stupid code to scare the second Leopard away from the ledge where the turtle is. Nor can I find the pole or a way to get Jeb into the mud flats for the purple flowers. Although I BOUGHT this game, I think I am going to just delete it or forget about it for a while.

Good luck to all..........JoAnne
