  1. Thank you so much, Mu11berry. This is exactly what I wanted, just sort of a guideline on whether I should be able to beat the enemies in different areas of the game or not. I'm definitely not anywhere near up to some of the meanies I've banged my head against the wall trying to fight, so I feel much better now. Thanks for the advice about the "goodies", Mickychi, but I think I'll reserve them for future playthroughs. I like to discover games for myself as much as possible. This is definitely a game where you can wander right into big monsters 20 levels above you if you don't know where to go next, because it's not anywhere near linear (which is a good thing if your goals are fairly clearly defined, but can be confusing with so many quests in your journal). I have played through about half the game before, back in 2008 or so before my parents had to move in with me, but I remember very little of the gameplay from so long ago.
  2. I'd just like some general guidelines for progressing through the game. Basically at approximately which level to tackle which areas. Right now I just go into places, get whacked, try someplace else, get whacked again. *Sigh* I have been playing RPG's for years and years (FF I in the 90's), but somehow I find myself wandering aimlessly trying to level up and trying areas again and again to no avail. I don't really want answers to the quests--that's the fun of playing. Just wondering if I've lost my touch over the last 10 years of parental care instead of gaming or if I just haven't been grinding enough yet to go into the next area. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    game won't open to full screen

    Haven't been gaming much since 2007 when I took on my disabled parents for 9 years as sole caregiver. Just got back into games after they passed on last year. Found this game and decided to try it. The full screen thing still doesn't work, even using the download from here. My resolution is 1600 x 900 and I'm running Windows 10, though running the program in the recommended Win 7 compatibility mode doesn't solve the issue, either. Any ideas?

    Timeline for success?

    I've been on track to buying Rosewood Manor by day 66-70 every time I've played, but I just didn't think you could do the last 2 hatcheries in 10 days. Am I right in that assumption, at least? I'm on my 5th play-through and don't seem to be getting anywhere. I think I'm just too slow to have enough pets in any of the hatcheries to succeed

    Timeline for success?

    Sorry if someone covered this somewhere, but I couldn't find it. Could anyone venture a good timeline to strive for to succeed in Grimm's Hatchery? Just so I have an idea when to give up (again). What I'm looking for is something very simple, just like: Get key to second village by xx day. Buy Hobb's cottage by xx day. Buy Rosewood Manor by xx day. Get Noble Sector key by xx day. etc. A range from the optimal day to absolutely the very last possible day is fine. I'm just getting frustrated only being halfway to Rosewood Manor by day 45 and wonder if I'm hopelessly lost and behind schedule. If so, then I can re-think my strategy. Thanks for your help.

    How do I use Hobb's Key?

    Yep, figured it out this evening when the cursor turned into a key. Just assumed the second hatchery would be closest to the second village and the one next the castle would be the last one. Silly me, that's what I get for assuming things. Thanks!!

    How do I use Hobb's Key?

    OK, so I sweated and strained and got the 980 gold to buy the key. It's even in my inventory. But I can't unlock the area. I can't find any way to "use" or "select" the key from my pack, and I've wasted 2 days at Grimm's Farm getting enough money to buy more pets for Hobb's, cause I thought I might need a certain number or type of pet to get into the area. Can someone shed some light? Thanks.
