Good afternoon Fellow Players:
I'm new to the Unwritten Tales series. I only finished the first game this weekend. So instead of purchasing 2, I decided to purchase the Critters first. I'm not sure it was the right thing to do. Yes, this is a Steam version of the game.
The game loads fine. I can access the settings, etc. The game seems to load the first cut scene correctly, or so I think. Here's the first indication that something was wrong: my cursor show's "busy." The first cut-scene ends, the credits roll & the beginning of the game starts & that's where my luck ends. Each and every conversation must be advanced by left clicking. My cursor stays "busy" but the space bar works & Nate does move when you point & left click; however, you get 2 left clicks before the game discontinues. No, it doesn't crash as the music continues and the objects on the screen continue to move but that's the end of my control over Nate and anything else considered normal game play. When this happens escape does not work; the space bar does; left click does not work. I sent Nate to the Mardi Gras chest first, he opens it, he examines it but he cannot pick up the items although when you press the space bar the hand does appear, but otherwise there is no hand, only a "busy" symbol. Nate can examine & pick up the green bottle however, that's the end of my control of the game.
I wrote Tech support & have received a response but that response is asking me to do (AGAIN
) the same actions I had already done in an attempt to run the game correctly, i.e., verified the game files; made sure all drivers had been updated, attempted to run the game in admin & compatibility mode (Windows XP service pack 3), disable and re-enabled graphics control from the game back to the game; uninstalled, cleaned registry of all items related to Critters, and absolutely nothing helped. I have not heard back from them and it has been 2 days since I reported that their suggestions were an utter failure.
If anyone out there has any solutions that don't include DOS based editing (I am an utter failure at DOS), I would appreciate any and all solutions.
Thanks for your time...and attention.
