Dominic Crane's Dreamscape Mystery has been escalated

[Post New]by bfgTigris on Apr 8, 10 8:59 AM
Hi everyone,

I just want to drop in here and let folks know that we have gone ahead and sent the issue over to our development team to look into the game continuing to run in the background after exiting on some systems.

We are very sorry for the frustration that this error has caused. We do our very best to test each game on a variety of computer types and configurations. However, even with an army of game testers working 24 hours a day we still would not be able to insure that we test for every possible combination of Operating System, Video Cards and Software Updates that are used by everyone. While we know that only a small percentage of people are experiencing this issue, we will do whatever it takes to get this problem resolved quickly.

Thank you for your patience.

I don't like this game at all because there are no instructions or help at all. I can't figure out what to do most of the time. And the skip feature on the puzzles are just too slow. I couldn't even finish the trial version of the game.

Hi Cyndo123,

It's possible you need to run your Game Manager as Administrator if you use Vista or Windows 7. The best thing to do would be to contact our Technical Support Team. They are really great and will do whatever they can to help you out.

Hope this helps!

Nope, it even happens (Game Manager disappearing) when running as Admin. I agree this is a horrible game and I am surprised that it even made it to distribution. YUUUKKKK!

This game has similar problems in quitting just like Dark Parables:Curse of Briar Rose. The only exception is that Game Manager will restart when game program is killed which doesn't happen when killing Dark Parables program.

See: http://forums.bigfishgames.com/posts/list/87562.page

Is there something in common with these two games? Something which makes them act like this, I mean.

amahaf2-I agree with you--this game needs a walkthrough or some hints or something...I have to decline this game as I can't figure out how to play it! This is the first time I have not been able to work my way through a game for lack of tips-- and I'm not a newbie either. Sorry GameFish, definately on this one--but, you are still the greatest game site ever!

My game manager is also disappearing - running XP. But I could put up with that if I could figure out how to play the game. The hints aren't working and I have not one clue what to do next five minutes into the game..

I have just run the demo so far, but I like the silence and lack of tutorials. So far (to the pyramid, I think) so good.

I came to the forum to check how long the game goes for.

Is the fix a complete download or just partial? In other words, how big is the file?

It was downloading for a while, so I think it was the whole game coming down.

...Dark Parables ran smoothly on my system. As have all the games I've bought on BFG. This Dominic game is the first that's causing problems on my pc.


Same here. This is the first BFG game I've had problems with. Guess this one wasn't meant for me. I give up trying to get the game to run.

The walkthrough didn't go to the end of the game I purchased. I'm stuck in the room with the painting on the easel. I have the paintrush and the key but I don't know how to find the code to unlock the box. I thought the paintbrush should work with the painting and/or box of paints. what am I missing here.
