My problem is with the boxes at the beginning of the Second Day.

I used the paper clips on the boxes on the Second Day, and the girl made some comment about having "one to go" when I did the first one, but the boxes don't open. The dialogue changes to reference some type of stone tablets and that I'd better be careful, but the boxes never opened. There was absolutely no change in them from when I approached them the first time and they were locked until the time that she says they are stone tablets and I've used the paper clip. No change at all.

Were the tops supposed to open, or was something supposed to happen?

yes, the tops were supposed to open! what a strange thing!
if she made a comment, just try to open both boxes (even though you don't see tops opening). after you're done, use your camera on one of them and click. if you hear the camera "click" then you're ok. you'll get a photo in you inventory.

btw. no one else seems to have a problem like this. ???

They never opened, but I took a picture of the tops of the boxes anyway and it seemed to work at least enough to get a picture. The tops, however, never did open.

Just started the second day with no problems except none of the characters are visible -- only what they are holding and their shadows on the floor. Any suggestions? I am running XP and using the game settings as preset on the download.

this is because of outdated video drivers on your computer. You should contact BFG tech support - they can help you with this one!

Darn, my computer froze up twice today. The first was Buried in Time and now this one. With this game it froze when I used the key to get into the locked basement door. I was really getting into this game until wham, screen froze up.
I'm affraid to try it again being that I had to shut down computer twice today.
Any suggestions?

My labyrinth is nothing but a big black rectangle with a tiny brown blob that I assume is supposed to be my character. On the walkthroughs, I see that there are supposed to be some level of light coming through on the maze and the character is at least supposed to have a small circle of light around her to allow her to see deadends as she comes up upon them. Also, in the walkthroughs it says to use the arrows at the bottom of the screen - and I have nothing at the bottom of my screen. Clearly something isn't right here. Has anyone else had this problem and any solution?

Hi can anyone tell me if this game is meant to have speaking audio as I only have subtitles. At the first point of the game I had speach audio and music however now only music and sound effects. Is this normal as usually these games have the option of both written and sound when a person is speaking.

My game also crashes when she meets the detective and he has solved the case. When I try to go back in, I get a message from "OGRE Engine Rendering" saying the following:
Allow NVPerfHUD: No
Anti aliasing: None
Floating-point Mode: Consistent
Full Screen: Yes
Rendering Device Intel 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller
VSync: Yes
Video Mode: 1024 x 768 @ 32-bit colour
sRGB Gamma Conversion: No

Though I understand a bit of this, I don't know what it means.
It kicks me back to before I enter the office and get the marbles, etc. It has done this three times.

Checked to ensure comp all upto date; even reinstalled flash/shockwave software, ran dxdiag-no problems found, uninstalled and reinstalled game. Still get the same issues.

Don't see anyone else having "these" issues. Any suggestions?


I'm having this issue too! Anyone know how to fix??

Is there going to be a further update on this game or not?
The one that's been released hasn't solved all the problems.
Haven't had a response from customer services yet & I'm just wondering.

I had the same exact problem in both, "Hotel" and "Legend of Crystal Valley." They just kick you out of the game before you can even start playing the game, and takes a minute of your demo time, everytime you try to get it to work. They look like good games, just wish they would work!

I give up. I just downloaded the updated version and the game still won't start. This has been addressed more than a few times in this forum and NO ANSWER. I'm very disappointed.
