I am also having problems with the sleeping pills/crossbow bolt in the bonus chapter. Seems like lots of other people are having the same issue, as it has a separate thread all its own. I'm sending a ticket and would encourage others to do the same.

Add me to the list. I'm sending in a ticket. Perhaps if everyone else will do the same, we will get a solution. I am really disappointed too, as I really like this game.

Has anyone else found this fix to work? If so, where do I find this to install?

If you look real close at the journal, it gives you the information you need to solve this puzzle, although it is a little hard to read. It shows that the lever has to be in the down position, showing a green light. I was like everyone else, though, trying to pull the handle down, which didn't work. Thanks to Tabbitha53 for the solution to this problem.

I agree with everyone; didn't like the ending of the main game or the bonus game because there was no ending to either one. I also wanted the zombies and the monkey rescued, particularly the zombies, as I thought that was the whole purpose of the game. I came to the forum to see if there is a sequel game, but I guess not.

I also had problems with the game either slowing down or freezing completely. When it slowed down, I got out of it and game back in, usually with not much loss of position. Other times I had to go to the task manager and end the game, then go back into it.

I wonder if anyone is listening to us and/or planning on doing anything about the technical issues or creating another game to start where this one "doesn't" end. LOL.

Ok, I read through this forum topic again and the answer was there all along. I was missing upgrading all the farm animals. I, also, didn't realize that I needed to scroll past the first set of animal choices. I had to add more sheep pens and chicken coops before I could buy all the animals I needed to max out. Once I did that, then I got Farmer of the Year and was able to go on to the retirement portion. I got 39 out of 47 achievements, but ended up with 3 uncompleted quests; 3 feathers, duct tape and a mannequin. Thanks everyone for all the help.

I have read everything in this forum subject and still can't finish the game. I have grown every single crop up to the max of 10 levels for each crop. I have purchased all the animals I have been allowed to purchase, I have upgraded every single building, have played/skipped all the puzzles until there weren't anymore available. I have like $130,000 in the bank, and yet I am stuck on 4th place in the farm contest. The only thing I haven't finished are the quests. I think I have maybe 4 or 5 left, and no new ones have been available for quite some time. Oh, I haven't gotten all the achievements, which isn't possible so I don't think that is the issue, I have played for hours, for days, for weeks and I haven't been able to win the contest yet and nothing to complete the quests are showing up in the HOS. All I can do is feed the animals and play the same HOS over and over and over again. But I hate to quit after spending all this time and effort on it. Sure hope somebody can help me. Thanks.

I understood how to play it, but two different times I had all the squares showing either numbers or mine flags, meaning that I did not hit a mine at all, yet nothing happened. I had no other open squares to either "dig" or place a flag on, which I would think would mean I had solved the puzzle, yet absolutely nothing happened. After doing this twice, at 2 different times in the game, I gave up and bought my way out of all the rest of therm.
I cannot place the idol in the niche in the wall in the temple, even though the strategy guide says this is what needs to be done. I get the message "can't use this here". This sounds like similar problems others have had, like using the bludgeon on the wall, etc. Sure could use some help. Thanks.

I am having 2 problems that I have seen questions on before in the forum, but no answers. I have looked at the walk through for the game several times but have not found the help I need.

1. I cannot find the last piece for the stained glass puzzle.

2. I cannot pick up the pipette/eye dropper to move the developer into the tray to develop the picture. This task holds the answer to another puzzle and at this point I cannot continue with the game until I get the picture developed.

I'm basically at a stand still with this game and I'm very frustrated. Please help.

I have the very same problem and it doesn't look like anyone answered this question. I can go no further until I get through this task. Please help.

You have to hold down the left click button then move the saw back and forth. This works very quickly.

This hint solved the problem for me, although it is not as simple as it sounds, When you click on your first circle, which can be anywhere, you have to choose one of two circles to click. Your choice here doesn't matter. Just remember where you started with you first click. Now, after your second click, look at the diagram to find the circle that, if you click on it, it will highlight your original circle that you first clicked on as one of the two choices. Click on it, then click to send the gem back to where you started. Keep doing this (going back to where you started when you sent a gem out) and it will work. Thanks, usfreedom, for getting me out of this bind.

I'm having the same problem. Would someone please post the solution to getting the gem ,box open so we can finish this game? Up until now, I've really enjoyed the game, but this is getting very frustrating. Thanks.

I am pretty new to internet games, so maybe I'm easily impressed. I like this game and purchased it after the free trial.

The trouble I have with some games is knowing where to go for the next action without having to buy a strategy guide or go to a blog walk-through, which is time consuming and breaks the momentum of the game. I hate hints that say something like "nothing left to do here; need to explore elsewhere", but never tell you where that "elsewhere" is. In this game, the hints told you where to go next: old man's street, garage, etc., which I found very helpful. And that's why I like BF's free trials; if I find it hard to navigate the game, then I don't buy it. I also like hints that tell you what you are trying to do with a puzzle, which maybe goes back to my lack of experience. I can look at some puzzles and have no idea what I'm supposed to try to do to solve it.

I'm not sure the ending actually fit in with the story line, but would probably have to play it again in case I missed something along the way.

All in all, a satisfactory experience for the money.

Thanks for the tip, but didn't have key in inventory either. Finally got help through tech support email. Was told to check Adobe Flash and Shockware for updates; Flash was OK, but Shockwave needed updated. Then, as per further instructions, I started the game over under another player name. Was able to get all the way through the game with no more problems. Glad I got the help I needed as I had already paid for it. Other than this one issue, I liked the game pretty much. Some parts of the story played over and over again and had to be skipped to get on with the game, but this was minor.
Thanks again.

I am stuck at this point also and I've tried everything to get past it. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the game. The problem is, I don't have a wrench in my inventory to open the red box, and there is no other scene to go back to to get one. I have paper money, a hammer and a letter opener/knife in my inventory, but no wrench. So what do I do now to get beyond this point? I have purchased this game, which is even more frustrating to me. Any help would be appreciated.
