I’m getting tired of Sherlock. I play for a few minutes and then it doesn’t respond when I click on something. This is not even in searching a room. Not putting much effort into playing it lately

That happens to me sometimes too - what I do is I click on the Firefox icon - (I have it to where all my tool (app.) buttons show onscreen at all times in a row at the bottom) - when I click on that to pause game - then go back in game, it works every time. : )

I just close the tab. I haven't d/l it. Play online.

I play online too - I think that's one reason this way works. Since when it acts up - freezes - to click on the icon of my provider - Firefox - then click back into game always works for me. But only with Sherlock.

With Hidden City, I experience getting kicked out of the game after approx. 15 min. of play, every day. Sometimes more, sometimes less...

I think it might be because I have a lower version of Windows than what the game requires for download, which is why I play directly off their site.

Just a little FYI for Hidden City...if you click on a scene, before entering, you can click on the star on the top heading. It will mark it as a favorite or preference for your friends to charge when visiting you.

You can mark up to 5 locations, but if you mark a 6th one, the first goes away without warning so you need to remember what you marked and in what order (or open and uncheck/re-check each one). Only your friends can see the stars so a slight flaw IMO.

Thought I'd pass this on since I often wondered what the stars were for when visiting friends :)

Thanks, Cookie!

I knew about clicking on the star, but didn't realize we get only 5 faves....

I guess I need to re-evaluate what I have faved, though I do know my first two faves were The Gift Shop and The Christmas Room - lol. Usually if it has to do with Christmas, I'm all in. : )

I love their art and have noticed similarities to Elephant games in the drawings of the scenes - the general look, but also specific objects I've hunted in other HOPA games and are drawn the same - and I know Libby has made the comparison to some MC ideas too - so am wondering if somehow G5 is affiliated with Elephant or has devs who worked for them ...

I also noticed in Hidden Treasures that the music used for when you win a game, and again, when you click to get the rewards - is the exact same music used for those purposes in the Awakening games, of which I own all of them and love. And I always enjoyed the little tunes they played then, which is one reason I noticed it right away, once I turned on the music (I usually play the games on mute) - and so have wondered if some of the devs worked for the company, Blue Tea games, which is no longer around and made the Awakening games. When a location levels up, the clouds and fury of hammers is also something Awakening did in their free to play game when a place leveled up, in that exact same way....

Just some useless info I thought I'd share. lol

But it is fun to notice the similarities.

Anyone know if Sherlock has a new update yet and what it is??

Just curious. : )

When I was in there last night (my 02/05/22) it still had a day and a bit to go.


From: Honeyphan


Really??? They cut me off - it shows that it will "soon end" when opening the book - but then there is nothing there - it no longer opens to the event....


Not to offend anyone, but ALL of the G5 games are getting way too glitchy. If it isn't one thing, it's something else. Either the events are not in correct phase, or the options will not come up when clicked on, or they need to be restarted ---- always something to foul up consistent game play.

And noe, their main pages offer the option to "download" the game for "better performance". But when clicked on (for me) it tells me to update to W10, which I already have. So I sent in a support request, and they write back demanding a ton of info they alredy have.

But they can certainly get those money begging requests up promptly and efficiently.

Too much hassle ---- getting tiresome.
