Hello. I recently downloaded the demo to see how the game feels before buying it, and I keep getting this error:

Image

It only happens when a sequence is supposed to start or end.

It happened at the end of the first dream only once, but the game autosaved before it happened. It happens every time after the classroom sequence before the third dream, though, I don't know what to do exactly. I've tried turning off the Bloom Shader, and downloading the latest DX9 (November release), no effect.

Help, please?

I have a GeForce 6600GT.

P.S. Forgot to mention, the game CTDs when it happens.

Hi Persuader,
Someone else was also reporting this bug. Unfortunately we couldn't reproduce it yet.
Please help us by doing the following: Download the newest patch, currently v1.06: http://www.avencast.com/downloads/AvencastDemo_patch_v106.exe
Should the problem persist please try experimenting with different settings. Does the problem disappear when you change some options(vsync, windowed mode, hardware processing, etc)?
Exiting memory resistant programs in the background such as MSN, Skype, Anti-Virus may also help.
Please let us know so we can hopefeully reproducte the bug and write a patch for it.
Thanks,
Michael
P.S.: Does this bug prevent you from fully playing the demo?

It does, yes. I cannot enter chapter 3 of the demo due to crashes caused by it. I'll experiment with the settings a bit, and I'll let you know.

Btw, I have the latest demo, 1.06, so that's not the issue. Must be something with the video settings, I'll give it a go.

Last time we had this bug it only occured when the game went back to the main menu. I think you have actually reached the end of the Demo. There is no "third part" (if you don't count the tutorial)
So actually I think this bug does not prevent anyone from finishing the game.

The.. end? But how? Where are the "points" mentioned in the rumor? I want my prize! :'-(

Seriously though, the part of the game where I'm fighting those possessed mages and I end up in a corridor where there's a sign-in book at the end is the end of the demo? 'Cause the cutscene shows me being awoken by the teacher standing next to me, and then something starts loading and WHAM, I'm out, and error's there.

Sounds like the end to me... click on "Hall of Fame" for points.

After putting all video option that have "Auto" on Auto, and after disabling all kinds of shaders, it worked. And true, 'twas the end. I'm in the HoF.

So how does this scoring work? How do I upload the score and how do I know if it's even worth uploading?
