    The patch file links gives a message that the file is not found. Where can I get the game patches???

  2. Frankie Henderson says:

    While playing message in a haunted house, I get to the part where Hannah? comes out of her room and invites Nancy to the basement to speak to the spirits, and it just freezes, can’t back out nor escape. Very aggravating.

    I already have, twice now.

    i’m able to get to the secret passage and Nancy is able to speak “Louis is up to something”
    He grabs the book, music plays for a bit, he freezes, and the game crashes.
    downloaded the patches, didn’t help.
    please help me!

    If you are having problems getting the piece into place without white showing try going into your mouse settings and checking the enhanced precision box. In windows it was under “Additional mouse options” to the far right of the mouse settings page. That solved it for me!
