[Update] Never mind! Silly me, didn't look at the design.
Totally frustrated. In Mayan section, I've gotten to the puzzle on the back wall of the Tunnel of Silence and no matter what I do, I can't get past the 'something needs to be done somewhere else' message. I've already put the 5 skulls and FIVE colored stones and "solved" that puzzle. Put the board in the bridge and put the scroll down. There is nothing left to do except the wall puzzle, yet it won't let me. My only hint that something is wrong is from the walkthru:
* Place the 5 SKULLS on the empty slots on the altar.
* Place the 4 PIECES OF COLORED STONES so their beams shine on their matching colors, next to the skull.
* Click on a crystal to remove it from its stand.
* Go to the Eagle Canyon.

There are FIVE pieces of colored stones, so am I supposed to remove one? Which one? arggghhh!

I've tried to play the trial but can't get in. I start up the game, enter my name and then it freezes and quits out.

Any suggestions?

I also cannot get to get the gear.
Wants me to use machete in the bridge scene.
The scroll and plank are in place when the ring appears but showing no gear.
But in the Tunnel it will not let me open the mini game area to get the gear.
Says need to finish other locations first.
But all other area's are finished.
Have replayed it leaving placing the scroll and plank till the end but nothing works.

I have uninstalled etc. and reinstalled to no avail.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Could this be a Mac bug?
I know many PC user's found it hard but after looking at hints etc. they obviously got past it.

I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. I TOO HAVE REINSTALLED THE GAME. I GET TO THE BRIDGE AND I CANN'T FIND ANYWHERE TO US THE MACHETE. ALL OTHER AREAS ARE DONE EXCEPT FOR THE AREA WITH ALL THE BONES ON THE GROUND. IT WON'T LET ME US THE MACHETE THERE, NOR WILL IT LET ME PRESS THE BLOCKS, IT SAYS GO TO OTHER AREA FIRST. THOSOE ARE THE ONLY TWO ARES LEFT!!!

I have written to the help section.
Asking for a replacement game.

I believe this game is still flawed and was not tested enough.

Both for PC and Mac user's.

I am interested in a game that has no demo.
Yet they tell you to trial before you buy.

No win situation.

Same problem here. Do we get a refund? Love the games but very frustrated.

Ditto, that stupid machete doesn't work any where on the screen. Press hint and just says use machete in screen. Very, frustrating. I did try game before buying. Didn't get this far so didn't know there would be a problem. I do have OS X 10.5.8. Is that the problem? Like the game but no point if you can't go on. I to have an Intel Core duo 2. It's a desk top Mac. First time I have had a problem with any BFG. At least I am not the only one with this game. I am going to contact BFG.
