Hello everyone!

If you are having problems getting the game to work correctly, we highly recommend visiting Big Fish Games Help. Checking out the help articles in Big Fish Games Help is always the quickest way to get technical problems resolved. Here are a few suggested help articles that have helped many people correct these types of problems in the past:

Game Crashing, Freezing, or Blank Screen
Game Compatibility

While we can offer a known solution for technical issues in the Forums, or other tech savvy pond residents can swim by with good tips and suggestions, we cannot provide the same excellent level of support provided by our Customer Support team.

The Forums are not very well suited for the kinds of information gathering and troubleshooting that get these types of issues corrected quickly.

If you are not able to get a game working properly using Big Fish Games Help, please get in touch with our Customer Support team. You can find a link to contact our Support team on the front page of Support Team, it would be helpful if you could state what system you are playing the game on (i.e. PC, MAC or Mobile), so we can provide you with the appropriate support as quickly as possible.[/color]

*Finally, please reserve this thread for tech issues only. If you are seeking game play assistance (i.e. hints and tips), the best thing to do is to start a new thread in the game's Forum by clicking on 'Create New Discussion.'

I made it to the first HOS (about 3 min into the game). Everything froze, my computer crashed, and following restart, my monitor went pixelated. Running Win 8.

I keep getting this message when I try to open the game. Any idea how to fix? I have updated all the drivers on my computer. Running windows 10. This also is happening with another game as well. I can't even open the game from the game manager. It thinks like it will run and then does nothing.

Adobe Reader could not open 'LauchGame.bfg because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).

Playing on a Mac. Used up my 60 minutes then I purchased the game. Now I can't get past the screen where you click on play. It shuts down to the game manager. Why would it play for an hour and quit after I bought it?

Hello nsanguin and Mac_too,

Thank you both for taking the time to report what is being experienced while playing The Unseen Fears: Body Thief Collector's Edition. I can see that both of these seem to be a similar issue, so I wanted to provide some preliminary troubleshooting which may help in this case as well as how to contact our Technical Support Team should more help be necessary.

In this particular case, using the following suggested troubleshooting steps may be able to quickly resolve this issue occurring on a Mac:

For any problems that continue after trying those steps, I recommend contacting our Technical Support Team for further assistance. Our Reps are always happy to help out and will do their best to get back in touch as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and both of your for your patience. If there are any further questions, please feel free to PM me or any of our other active Moderators. We are all happy to listen and help out as best we can.

I went to "symbols" at the end of game to find the symbols that I missed. I like this feature so you can go back to get them. Only trouble is, in the boat house there should be 2, I must have found one. I cheated with the strategy guide and I cannot find the last symbol at all. I clicked everywhere it showed they should be. Does anyone know the secret?[size=14]

Also, cannot find any bonus chapter.

I have the same issue, I played then bought it, it kept poping back to the game manager.. saying buy then it switches to you bought it play now. but when click on the play button in manager or on the desk top it tries to load but then nothing happens. THe manager comes up Game already running and you can't get out of that unless your restart your computer. Im running windows 10 on both laptop and desktop.

FYI it messes up all the Big fish game after it locks up the game manager.

This works for people who cannot open a game whilst using windows 10, and also for some error codes.

I found this by accident on The Forgotten Fairytales forum but it worked for me. Change your screen resolution to something smaller, like 1680x1050, open the game and close it. Change the resolution back to original and open the game again. It worked for me on both games as neither would open but do now. Hope it helps.

-Remember that you can change the resolution back to your normal setting, and play the game in it, once you have opened and closed it in the lower one.
Good luck,
Sazoria.
