Frozen screen in Fright of bumblebees

posted by gardenguru on - last edited - Viewed by 452 users

After capturing all the bumblebees in the front yard, Grommit has all the tools necessary(frying pan, answering machine) to proceed . Unfortunately, the screen freezes when I try to select the downspout or the cheese in front of Paneer's store or the the news stand! Any suggestions so I can move forward in the game???

    We're in the same leaky boat!

    A few posts below yours you will see mine. There in lies my tale. No solution so far. I have reported it to Support. I thought it was just me, but I see it is not.

    I think I'm doing this right...

    If this doesn't work. Just scan your eyes down until you see me "Cyd".

    I hope Support comes us with something.

    Cyd :D

  • I agree, we have the same dilemma. How ironic......purchased also at Best Buy and ditto on pc system. How frustrating for us to get this far in such a fun game and to be stopped short. Hope we get some "resolve"! Stay tuned.... and thanks for your feedback!

    Go back to my thread and you'll see Support did reply there and in an email to me. Nick, from TellTale Support, has posted some save games you might want to try. They do start up, but they did not solve my problem. After watching YouTube I can see there are cut scenes that are not loading right before my problems begin.

    I hope you have better luck.

    If both our disc from Best Buy are bad...oh well, I may try for a replacement anyway.

    The rest of the episodes play great!

    Cyd :)

  • Read all the "support" notes that essentially got you no where and decided not to waste my time trying all the saves and zip file routine. Exchanged my game for a new one today at Best Buy. Their policy of exchange for same game is without question the "best". Now the hope is that this disc is flawless. Wish you the same success and happy gaming!

    Did the new disc work? If not, go to the original thread. Support has posted a download of the episode. It worked perfectly for me.

  • New disc worked without a glitch. Glad your frustration has also passed!

  • I exchanged my game at Best Buy and it still has the same problem freezing in exactly the same spot. When it's working right and Grommit goes to town (after the giant bees are all shot) there's a video clip; when it's not working right - there is no video clip and the game freezes.

    I did get the game download from Telltale support so I was able to get past that point but it would be nice to have a game that I bought in a store that works.

    Gardenguru: Was the game you got from Best Buy in a blue or brown box - mine was in a blue box - the same as the one I exchanged?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    The retail version only comes in a blue box, the brown box is for those who purchased the game directly from Telltale.

  • Thanks for the answer.

    I guess my next question would be, has this problem been seen on any games sold by Telltale (brown box) and what could be unique about the blue box games that have this problem? Also, did some blue box games play ok - without the freeze?

    Nobody can answer that as those of us getting it from Telltale haven't received it yet. There was more on the disc so it took longer to produce.
