View Full Version : Chess game freeze

Can anyone help?
When I talk to the skinny chess-player about Britanny (Britney?) after a couple of phrases the game locks up. Anyone experienced this? Anyone beaten it?

Help... etc.

  Also, what worked for me, purely by accident, was to go to the menu (as though to save or load a game) and instead to just resume the game. This, for reasons that escape me (like some of the puzzles!) unfroze the game. Of course, this may also be related to the suggestion of simply waiting a while--but that makes no more sense, either, than just slapping the side of the terminal...which might also work.

If you are desperate try this:

Disconnect Joystick/Gamepad and make the corresponding changings in Menu-Options.

Donīt use the Alt key.

Download the 1.1 patch from Lucas Art.

(Eventually run the DirectX diagnostics and change the refresh rate for the Graphic Board from Default to ???.
As a donīt know the Default value I canīt give any figure to enter. I havnīt done it myself.)

When I had this problem i thought, oh smeg but i then went for a Number Two and came back later (feeling much refreshed). and the pirates were fighting and i had control again. So just leave it for about 10 min.

I think we will be picking up our pensions before we complete this game at this rate.

2 mins, not 10 mins.
