    AH-AH.
    Telltale sales rushed products, so this is a Telltale standard now.
    They often release buggy games that lacks polishment and they rarely release a patch.
    Get used to it.
  • Same problem. I couldn't even get it to go online. I had to email support to get an offline code to even get to the play button. I rebooted into my windows 7 partition (I'm on a macbook air) and downloaded the PC version and it works much better. If that's an option i'd try that.

    How many telltale games have you played?
    So far Poker Night has been the only buggy game.
  • I logged in and I cannot push the play button on episode 1. I can push the buy me now on episode 2, but the episode 1 play button does not work.
  • I had this issue too. The PLAY button would not do anything until I started the game as Administrator.

    To do this (if you don't know how), right click the desktop icon, and click Run As Administrator. You can also set it to permanently do this via right click/Properties.

    Hope this helps.
  • Yeah, I'm having the same problem. By the way, I'm using a Mac.

    Same here. On Mac OSX 10.5, and the play button doesn't work, even if the others are !

    I hope they will be able to fix it, as I don't have Windows on this computer :(

    I played ALL Telltale games.
    Did you forgot the Guybrush-in-the-cell major bug that prevented finishing the game? Or the one on Muzzled, that prevented finishing the game too? or the last episode of "Wallce&Gromit" that someone ironically called "The BUGey man"? And the bug on puzzle agent demo that make you finish the game for free?
    And these are just the MAJOR ones.

    See this stickied thread in the support forum about problems with BTTF on Mac. I also couldn't start episode 1 (freebie version), but applying the two suggestions in that thread fixed it.
  • Running the DirectX installer fixed the problem for me when I installed it to a different PC.

    UPDATE: and now it doesn't work again.
