Bought The Walking Dead (preorder) and "The Almost Everything Pack", games won't work

posted by Nintendork on - last edited - Viewed by 665 users

I have a Mac (OS 10.7.3, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7, 4 GB Memory, AMD Radeon HD 6630 256mb) and I recently bought The Walking Dead Preorder, along with the "Almost Everything" pack.

My problem is that whenever I try to play a game, I can only get to, what I assume to be, the game authorizing page. All the buttons are blank and the text fields won't accept any input. I've tried Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, SAm and Max: Season 2: ep 1, and Strongbad's Cool Game for Attractive People: Ep 1. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

  • Thanks, I kinda figured that it was taking a while for them to put the game up. But that problem pales in comparison to the problem I'm having activating my games.

    I still haven't received any acknowledgment from Telltale.

  • i have the same problem ... i can't download the game from the webpage
    any idea about what is the problem ????
    everything have a download link but the walking dead not
    it's just there pre order ..

    You DON'T have the same problem I have. My problem is that none of the games included in the "Everything Else Pack" that I bought, are working, even though my computer specs are good enough.

    The reason you can't download the Walking Dead is because Telltale has made it available on their site yet. That's also a problem, but it's not what this thread is about.

  • I am "chomping" at the byte waiting to download and get into The Walking Dead.

    Still no word here on the East coast, NC as far as I know . . .:confused::cool::)

  • Incase I haven't quite made my problem clear, here's what I see when I open some of the "Almost Everything Pack" games.

    As you can see, all the buttons are unlabeled. The empty text fields won't accept any input.

    SBCG4AP: 8-bit is Enough
    Same problem. All the buttons are unlabeled. The empty text fields won't accept any input.


    Will someone please help?

  • Damn that sucks... Though in the meantime you should probably post your DXDiag of your computer, I know they'll sure to be asking about it when they come around so I'll save them the trouble. also, nice User Name. :D

  • so has anyone been able to download the first episode of The Walking Dead because when i log onto my account all I see is that it says I have preordered the Season Pass for the walking dead but no direct link for me to download the game??????

  • Could everybody please stop using this thread to complain about the Walking Dead not being available yet. I actually have a legitimate problem that I need help with, and I don't need all these unrelated messages clogging up this thread!

    Thank you!

  • Hey, sorry you're having so much trouble getting your games working. I'm not the most tech-savvy person, but I'm familiar enough with the launcher that I can give you a few suggestions regarding what the problem might be, based on your screenshots.

    Basically, what you're seeing is something we call the wrapper. The fact that it is showing up with missing art and other assets indicates to me that it's having trouble connecting to our servers. If you have any firewalls in place or any particularly picky security software, you may want to try temporarily disabling it and see if that helps.

    Alternatively, do you happen to be trying to connect through a school server? Those have caused similar issues in the past (again, due to the security software in place).

    Let me know if any of that helps.

  • Thanks for the tips Caleb, but those are all things I have tried, to no avail. My new post has updated information and a list of the things I have tried.

    It might be a good idea for a moderator to close this thread, given that it kinda went off topic.
