In Petz Talk, it's not unusual to see people posting about problems they're having running the game, and a lot of the time the answer is "move your game out of program files" or "run as administrator", etc. I know when I got back into Petz last fall, I ran into a lot of the same bugs because I didn't know Petz acted like that on newer operating systems. Perhaps a sticky would be helpful, something like "Help, my game isn't working right!" with an FAQ-like format. Perhaps a short tutorial on how to set up Compatibility Mode too, since not everyone may know how to do that. Just a thought! I'm good with that kind of stuff, so I could even write something up, if needed.
Never really thought about making a sticky like that because all those things seem like such common knowledge - but then again, we've also had a bunch of posts recently where one of those simple things fixed the issue. I'll see if I can find time to throw together something like this today!
Yeah, it seems simple to us, but for someone getting back into Petz after years would probably be really confused as to why their toys were disappearing or why mini game dialogue boxes repeat infinitely until the game crashes. I know I was confused when it first happened to me lol.

gumdrop: I've gone ages w/out accepting donations before...it's kinda fun, like when u had paper paychecks and you'd find one you forgot to deposit and suddenly you have a lot more money than you realized. (Just me?)

Laura: You're probably tried already and I'm suggesting the obvious, but have you tried launching it with different compatability settings and/or as admin?
