    You can try deselecting High Quality April Model, or turn off Special Effects or Shadows.
    Good point! I hope that helps.

    I have made it there, Rmom Sunny  I've only talked to a couple of vendors thus far, though.  I'm hoping to get back to it in a few minutes here (after I put on some laundry Wink  )

    So far (I have the game from GOG) when the box pops up  I have clicked on Advance,
      then clicked on "Enable W/Buffer"  And "Force Single Buffer".     That actually did help some,
      but I will also try those two you mentioned.

    I have been all over to

    spoiler:
    try and find that key.  If it wasen't for UHS,  I would not have gotten
    anywhere.    That is more ridiculous than where we get key's in our HO game!!

    LOL yes Luv, but I did warn you about it and IIRC this really is the worst (= stupidest) puzzle in the game.  Silly face

    I have arrived at
    spoiler:
    Acadia

    Will try again tomorrow,   not sure if I can finish playing it as it keeps freezing up and
    doing that "stuttering".   Really rather annoying.

    Oh, man!  Well, you could try deselecting High Quality April Model, and turn off Special Effects, High Quality Video, AND Shadows.  I want you to be able to play!

    I just finished talking to Flipper
    Spoiler:
    Boy does this guy have a mouth on him!  Not incredibly likeable!  He does remind me a bit of Mr. Universe in the movie Serenity.

    We had an Army of Darkness (aka Evil Dead 3) reference!  "Shop smart.  Shop S-Mart."  Woohoo~! Happy bounce  Made me so happy!  I LOVE that movie!  Bruce Campbell is such a hoot!

    I am still in chapter 1. I didn't get to play yesterday as my DH wanted to clean out the basement.   Rolling Eyes 

     I Can't seem to find my timecard so I can get paid.  I am loving the game and I don't mind if it is talkative, because that is how you learn about the people and the story. 

    Also, how do I do spoilers here.

    Hi there! I'm still in chapter 2 as I couldn't play at all today and actually am leaving to go to a show in a few minutes so won't get to play till tomorrow afternoon at the earliest.

    Well done, Genki! What do you think of the game so far?

    Sunshinej, if you want your timecard
    Spoiler:
    first check your inventory to see if you picked up your diary from your bedroom. If you did, click on it in your inventory, choose the 'eye' icon to examine it and you'll see the timecard is tucked in its pages.
    Tricky, no?

    To write spoilers, you can choose the spoiler icon from your posting menu (it's the 11th option from the left), or you can write your spoiler within these brackets -> [ spoiler ] and [ /spoiler ] without any spaces.

    Don't worry about me getting ahead -- I had Friday off because of the snowstorm, then of course the weekend.  Once I get back to work, I'll be lagging far behind! Laugh

    I'm finding the game very engaging.  I've gotten stuck a couple of times because I'd missed something, but luckily, I'm catching most things the first time around!

    Holy cow...!  At the end of chapter four
    Spoiler:
    I met the Gribbler.  I did NOT want to go with her, but of course I did (after saving Laugh  )  I was caught off guard by how SCARY she is!  Whoa! EEK! 

    Just started chapter five.  This stopped feeling like Crystal Valley a looooong time ago!

       I read it, but I was accessing it from the options tab and didn't check it out in my inventory.  Oops!

    In chapter 4 I was having a helluva time finding the darned library, and UHS was no help, so I had to go to a walkthrough to figure it out Rolling Eyes  Turns out I had missed seeing some stairs (they're HARD to see!)

    So, in doing so, I found an... Easter Egg, I think!  It mentioned where to use that silly leaf that we've been carrying around since the game first began!

    HINT #1:
    Spoiler:
    Treat it as if it's a seed!

    Still don't know what to do with it?

    HINT #2:
    Spoiler:
    Plant it when you find a garden with "extra room"

    Can't find the right place?

    HINT #3:
    Spoiler:
    The garden is in the yard of the creature who is "outside of time", next to the other flowers

    Doing this will will unlock the Book of Secrets, which we can see on the Main Menu page.  I haven't looked inside yet, but it's nice to know that I'll be able to!  You may not be able to get back to this area once you finish Chapter 5 (not sure!) so keep an eye out!

    Holy cow, I'm to chapter 10 (of 13) now! OH!  I've scarcely been able to drag myself away from it today, pausing only to eat (by necessity Laugh  ) dig my car out of the snow so I can go out in the morning, and do a bit of laundry.

    Dang!

    Wow, Genki, you are really whizzing through it !!
    I haven't been able to play further b/c school's been super busy and draining. I *had* to get to bed around 9:30 last night - a first for me!! - but at your rate you will be done before I even pick it up again.  OH!  Belly laugh 

    I assume you're enjoying it.  Wink  It really takes you everywhere doesn't it. I love the mix of gritty urban realism with archetypal fantasy, but it's a real, fleshed-out story. With NO shooting !!!  Happy bounce

    Yes, I'm really enjoying it, and like you said, it takes you everywhere!  Sadly (but also good) it's back to school for the kids and to work with me today.  I'm soooo tired from digging the snow out from behind the car so I can make it to the street, but glad I did it yesterday, instead of hoping for it to melt off, for it's still really deep out there in my yard!

    Gah!  Chapter 12 was a PITA! >_<  It's the only part of the game that I didn't really love.  SO, now I've gotten to Chapter 13, the final part of the game.  I haven't actually started yet, and I'm going to wait 'til tomorrow night to try.

    I really don't want it to end!

    Wow, I'm impressed!  We\'re Unworthy!   That's a LOT of playing - good for you!
    I haven't been able to play for a while but then I hit a glitch where my game keeps shutting down at the same place.  Gah!  I will play with it a bit this weekend but may have to redownload.

    I have to apologize for all the talking. Replaying it with DH is making me aware just how chatty it really is; normally when I play it I zoom through. Well, as much as one can zoom in this game.  Snicker  I adore the story and am in awe of the love and dedication that went into this game's creation. DH is enjoying it too but I'm getting a little eyeball-rolling from him about the chit-chat.  Whistle

    The story is rich with religion, politics and plenty of intrigue, and the characters! Even when they appear briefly they're fully fleshed and interesting, and each has a backstory... Warren Hughes, Flipper Burns, Brian Westhouse, etc.

    Would love to know your take on the game.

    Oh, I had that same problem!  Let's see... I did something that allowed me to get past it, what was it... ?  Can you remind me what the spot is and exactly what you're doing that causes the crash?  Maybe that will jog my memory!

    Hi everyone.    I didn't drop out of the game.   This week I just haven't had the ambition
    to play when I got home from work.
    The last time I played I had reached

    spoiler:
    Arcadia.  I wandered around for a bit.  I made her listen to the
    fisherman's story,   which put her to sleep.   Then had her talk to the Captain of
    the ship,  who did not seem to appreciate her suggestions.

    I finally went back to talk to

    spoiler:
    The priest

    Well----that was the longest conversation... Loopy ....because  the "stuttering"
    was happening every other word!!
    I kept hitting escape and clicking my mouse just to end my torment.     pullhair 

    I have time off now,  so I am going to tackle this and finish it  NO MATTER WHAT!!    Two thumbs up
