I'm having a lot of trouble with the 'Bone: Out from Bonville' trial on my desktop machine.
The main problem is that Bone doesn’t seem to play well with dual-core processors - to get the game to run properly, every time I load the game I have to flip back to Windows and set the priority to one of the CPU cores.
After which, if I move the mouse to the top of the game screen, it turns back into the windows mouse pointer and doesn’t react to the game (unless I move it back down the screen again)
(I guess this is a result of me jumping back into windows to set the core priority?)
Also, the game keeps crashing on me - Playing to the bug/rock jumping mini-game part (just after Fone escapes from the mountains) - The game crashed completely, dropping me back into Windows.
Finally; I've found the cursor is always completely context sensitive - For example, in the caves where I'm picking up Bones trail of cigar stubs, I sometimes have to move the cursor over the stub several times before the icon will change from the default move/feet one.
I'd love to buy this game, but if it won’t let me get anywhere I'm scuppered (will Sam&Max suffer the same problem?)
