In the hallway upstairs there is a door to the town square. When the proper piece is fitted to the door it opens and you can click on it to go into the town square. When I do that I only end up with a frozen black screen and have to exit the game by means of alt/cntrl/del. I have tried restarting the game and reinstalling the game to no effect. There does not appear to be a patch for this game. Any ideas? It's a great game and I would very much like to finish. Thank you

Are your drivers up to date? Any error message?

Have you played this game before? If yes, then did it happen before? Does this happen with any similar games?

What are your PC specs?

When it freezes and you close it down, if you open it and click Play (to go to the same scene) does it just freeze again?

Restarting or reinstalling will not have any effect here. This is just a scene that has more going on in the way of animation, and it runs more slowly than most others on my machine as well.

Yes, after closing down then open and click play to same scene, it just freezes again. I just did a new game up to the door again and got same freeze. The words 'Scarecrow Alley' do appear then the freeze. I left it running and the scene never appears. I have a windows xp pro service pak 3, 2 quad cpu @2.50 GHZ and 2.49 GB Ram. And enormous memory. If that is what you mean by specs. I am not very computer literate. Just like to play games. Thanks again.

Yes, that's the information I was after. Can you try closing ANY other program you might have open, then loading the game and seeing if it displays that scene for you?

No other programs running. Not antivirus either.

Have you tried downloading it with another browser to see if you still get that error?

Tried Firefox a few times as well and file would not download. Only error message was 'failed' I don't think this is going to work. Maybe I can pay the extra and have the disc sent to me without buying the whole game again. I'm playing Gypsies Tales now and it downloaded just fine. Odd. I don't think it's me. something wrong with 'Curse of whatever'. Curse is on the download.

No, it's not the game. It's downloaded fine for me. Are you trying to get it from here or somewhere else?

Do you Chrome? Could you try it on there?

I'd try to resolve your other issue before considering buying the CD. If the game was running, redownloading/reinstalling it would not affect that issue - you would still encounter it after reinstalling.

You're right. I found another browser that downloaded it correctly. Thanks. In the meantime I finished the other game 'sectrets of the tower' or whatever. Very Good but I like 'curse' better. I usually don't like hidden object games, but I liked these very much. Please make some more, but make them more like 'curse' than 'tower'. Thanks again for the help and thanks to the dev for the games.

Not yet. I haven't had time. I'm still in the Scarecrow Alley to solve the murder. I forgot to mention that I absolutely hate puzzles too but these games are my exception. Glad I tried them. If it weren't for the demo's I wouldn't have even considered them. Once I tried a few minutes of the demo I was hooked!!!

Gary, are you still having issues with Scarecrow Alley not loading, or has that also fixed itself?

All fixed. Everything works fine after downloading it again on a different browser. Thank you.

Awesome! You really had me stumped with that other issue, so I'm VERY glad you're able to play without it freezing.

I would NOT have thought reinstalling would change it at all. Did you download from the same place each time?

Yes, I always downloaded it from this site. Should finish the game soon. Very impressed. Can't wait for another one.
