Wouldn't it be more sensible to stop doing the Jessica Videos and go back to plain text that can be edited at a moment's notice before adding it to the FB site? Jessica's Video is always made a week ahead of the CE releases and anything can change in between then.

However, I played the Beta of ERS' latest "Haunted Legends" game, and am glad it's out today.

In another area of the net, where developers have been known to come and comment, the developers of Vampire Legends let us know that they ran into a snag (their words) and are taking the time to work it out properly before releasing the game. I think this was entirely unexpected as they sounded very disappointed not to have met their anticipated release date.

Tony in case any BF members can help it would be useful for you to tell us what type of computer you are using and what operating system.

Good luck getting the game to work!

I clicked the 'stop tutorial' button and when after doing that, it wouldn't go away, I clicked elsewhere on the screen. It then disappeared and only reappeared when there was something new that hadn't been previously explained. Each time it reappeared (rarely), I repeated the steps above and had no problems with it.
I too was having problems downloading this game after purchasing it a little while ago (3 pm or so Mountain Time). I sent in a help request with the Dr. Felix report.

I uninstalled the game manager out of desperation and reinstalled it. Then attempted to download this game. It didn't work.

I finally downloaded a game I'd bought previously and while that was still downloading, clicked to download this game and it worked! Not sure if it was the fact that a previously purchased game was already downloading or what, but thought I'd share in case it helped anyone here.

Good luck!

I think I have all of them and based on looking at my history, this is what I think is right:

1. Curse of Briar Rose - 2010
2. Exiled Prince - 2011
3. Rise of the Snow Queen - 2011
4. Red Riding Hood - 2012
5. Final Cinderella - 2013
6. Jack and the Sky Kingdom - 2014

I love HOS and don't mind a fair few, but I can't tolerate one every scene. Please tell me this isn't like that!
Give it a shot! You'll never know whether you like it if you don't try it.

Thank you!

yes I downloaded game but its not lunching to start playing

Oftentimes all you need is to uninstall and reinstall. Good luck!
I used the work around for the signet ring glitch twice, but the 3rd time it will not work and so I am again stuck.

I went to Facebook and posted a comment on the company's page. It may help if others would do so that have a FB account.

Thanks for the work around. I appreciate someone figuring it out. I just wish it would continue to work.

By the way, the game looks great so far so I bought it. Going to continue playing before making further comment.

That I've noticed, it's just been this last week.

So far - 25 minutes - I'm enjoying the game. Haven't found morphing items or collectibles, but I'm not the best at either of those.

Turned it off because I was getting creeped out by the werewolves this late at night! Yes, I'm a wimp.

I think the Nancy Drew developers need to provide a free trial as all the other games do. I've never bought one because how do you know if you'd like it if you can't try it?

With the lack of BF support these days I am not buying something I can't try and then hoping I can get money back. No thanks.

There is a nice sale going on for CE's this weekend, 55% OFF.

The code, appropriately enough, is MOTHER.

and a Happy Mother's Day to those of you who are mothers, even if your country may not celebrate Mother's day on May 11.

Thank you very much Tookat! Happy Mother's day to you and to all the moms here!

So glad you posted that Tiger. I absolutely dislike mini-games /puzzles with no reset button. Oftentimes a quick reset allows you to see where you went wrong!

<snipped> "For D, whose love of HO games gave her the courage to learn how to use a computer.

Big Fish, you helped fill the last years of my elderly friend with excitement and variety and awe.

She would have adored this game."

I'm sorry for the loss of your friend, but so glad she found pleasure here. May she rest in peace.

Thank you for your many reviews and time it takes to do them.
Just an idea for people interested in the developers:

I liked and followed my favorites on Facebook. Not only do you get upcoming game information, some of the companies post scenes from games they are working on and some of them advertise for beta testers on FB.

There's one company in particular that asked for beta testers on FB about a year ago, I applied and have beta'd all their new releases since then. Many more games then I've ever been offered to beta in the years I've belonged to Big Fish. Just a perk I guess, if you like that sort of thing.

I like seeing what the different devs are up to and knowing they're got a biggie getting ready to be released soon.

I just wanted to say thanks very much for showing up here in the forums to chat with us. It really shows that a developer actually cares what we think and it's much appreciated.

I am downloading the game now and while I probably won't have anything different to add, I wanted to express my thanks that you cared enough to be here.

Spiders don't bother me although I know they are a big deal for many people. I love the idea of a slider to adjust the darkness in the games! I also enjoy "dark" music if it fits the theme.

Off to play!

Just wanted to say I'm enjoying the game so far and believe I will be purchasing the CE.

I appreciate that you were here listening to what we thought of the game. I really don't have much to add, but wanted to say thanks.

Melymc wrote:I end up with 7-10 PCC and nothing to use them on. I would LOVE to trade them for a CE game once in awhile. Even if it's just a special they run once in a great while. It's frustrating that the PCC expire. I too NEVER use The DBundle sales because I always have the other games OR I do not want buy them because I have PCC credits. Please think about our suggestions BigFish! Thank you!

I have to wonder if they ever read these comments.

Maybe run a poll BF and ask how many people would like to trade 2 or 3 coupons for a CE. It might make people a lot happier than the sales we can't often use.

Thanks for listening.

read61 wrote:leapfrog, this is why I never buy a CE when it is first released, I've been burned that way before! Now I wait until the weekend in case there's a good sale, or I wait until Monday when I can earn an extra punch. BFG have a long history of doing this, and I've only been burned once - then I learned my lesson! And a bundle sale is no use to me - I already own all the other games.

I'm in the same spot usually as you as far as bundle sales. I typically already own the other games available.

People like you and I and the other posters on this thread are the ones that spend a lot of money on the CE games yet we don't get to save any when the bundle sales come up. Typically I also have trouble finding decent SEs to use my coupons on.

Thanks for the advice about Monday and weekend sales.

Absolutely agree with both of you.

As for me, I'd be happy to trade in 2 or 3 free game coupons for a CE.

The thing that UPSETS ME A LOT is when they put out a great CE and I buy it and then 2 days or 1 day later everything on the site is 25 or 30 or 40% off.

With all the sales you've been running lately BF, why buy anything at full price? You make me feel ripped off.
